There are a few reasons why a motorist might find that they need to arrange for their headlight replacement. The first reason is a blow out. Like a light bulb in your home, your headlight bulb has a limited lifespan and will, one day, need to be replaced. Some vehicle makes will use LED headlights or halogen headlights to help retain energy efficiency and ensure that the headlight assembly has a long lifespan. Regardless of the type of bulb, there will be a headlight assembly replacement available.
These components of your vehicle are relatively straight forward to replace and generally it won’t take your mechanic long to complete a headlight switch replacement.
If your vehicle has sustained damage and requires a headlight socket replacement, then your mobile mechanic from Lube Mobile can also ensure that you receive the best replacement headlights, that your new assembly is installed quickly and affordably, and that your new headlights are in working order, ready to head back out onto the road.
Before the mechanic begins work on the headlight assembly, they will check all of the lights in your vehicle to ensure that there aren’t any other failing bulbs. They will check your brake lights, indicators (blinkers), reverse lights, fog lights and tail lights. Generally speaking, if a bulb has failed in your headlights then the second bulb won’t be too far away from failing as well. It’s a good idea to consider switching out both headlights in this case. This will ultimately save you money further down the track as you won’t be paying for a separate service and your full headlight replacement can be taken care of in a single service setting.
You may also discover that your regular logbook service returns details of failing or failed lights and this may be the reason why you need headlight replacement. Other common issues also include fogging of the headlight lens. The lens is the clear plastic cover that protects the headlights and also helps to reduce things like drag in your vehicle design. The lens should be completely transparent to ensure that when the headlights are in use, they are shining brightly over the road ahead. UV damage to headlight lenses is very common and can be either reversed with treatment or you can opt to replace the headlight lens entirely to address the issue. This kind of deterioration is common in older cars and is a sign of the aging vehicle. It’s not, however, terminal by any case and relatively inexpensive to fix.
As part of our standard service on all repairs and services, from steering to cooling systems and brakes to auto electrical issues like a starter motor, your Lube Mobile mechanic will undertake a thorough assessment of your vehicle and report anything that seems amiss or requires attention.
The cost for headlight replacement will vary depending on exactly what needs to be replaced and the kind of vehicle make and model you are replacing the headlights for. If it’s a high beam bulb replacement or a headlight lens replacement then prices can start as low as $25.00 and range over $100.00. Halogen bulbs typically cost around $20.00 for the unit but then there is labour to be charged on top for the mechanic’s time in removing the headlight assembly, successfully replacing the globe and then replacing the assembly. This may also be affected if the car has sustained any damage and that damage makes it difficult to access the area properly.
