Car Maintenance

Last updated:

Maintain your vehicle's headlights with this comprehensive checklist, which covers everything from inspecting for damage to ensuring optimal visibility. Start by examining the headlights for any cracks, then gently clean them using a soft cloth and mild soap. Make sure the alignment is correct and adjust if needed. Swap out any burnt-out bulbs and consider upgrading to brighter or more efficient options. If the lenses appear cloudy or yellowed, use a restoration kit to bring them back to life. Don't forget to check and clean the electrical connections, as well as inspect and replace any damaged wiring or fuses. Finally, test the high and low beam functionality and confirm that the headlight aim provides the best possible visibility for safe driving.
