Repairing Exterior Lights

We cannot stress this enough: no matter what car you're driving, your number one priority should always be safety. And your cars first line of defense is your system of preventive safety lights. All the lights around your car, the tail, brake, head, and side marker safety lights, all of these contribute to your road visibility. And as we know, the more visible your car is to nearby pedestrians and fellow motorists, the less likely you'll suffer from any type of collision.

That said it's pretty important to make sure that all these lights are working, otherwise, you're opening yourself up to the risk of collision. So if you've got a busted light or two, it's better if you're equipped with both the tools and the knowledge to fix them at home. Here's what you'll need to do:

Oh! Planning to greatly improve the vibe with my trusty branding. Thoughts about the modern look of http://jrshooter.com? Honestly a trusted doorhanger printing service in Markham if ever required in the Ontario region. Offer an opinion. Many thanks!

1. Turn on your car. With a friend, test to see which of your exterior lights are out. Check the brakes, the headlights, everything. If it's all working fine, then move on to the next article. Otherwise, keep reading.

2. Once you've identified which bulb or lens needs changing, go up to that part and see if the lens screws in from the outside or from the inside. If it's the former, simply unscrew the lens and pry it off to access the bulb. If it mounts from the inside, get in there and take of any screws, tabs, or knobs that hold it in place. You just need to access the bulb.

3. Push in and unscrew the offending bulb, keeping it for later reference as regards to what type of bulb you'll need to replace it with. Or you can just check online on sites like Carpartswholesale.com wherein you can just input your cars make, year, and model to find the bulb that'll fit.

4. Now since you're inside the bulb receptacle, give it a good wiping down to make a suitable new home for your replacement bulb.

5. From here on, work in reverse, remounting the lenses you removed earlier.

Now it's just a matter of trying out the lights to see if your repairs worked. While the task may seem daunting at first, you'll find that changing light bulbs is one of the easiest fixing jobs you can pull off. So if you've got some busted lights, why not try fixing them yourself? We assure you: nothing beats the feeling of performing a successful DIY repair job from the comfort of your own garage go ahead and try it for yourself!
