Why you should change your car bulbs before they fail
Many drivers purchase new car bulbs even though their current bulbs are still working. This is not just because they want to have a spare set with them, but also, over time, the bulbs will not perform as before even if they are still technically working. The bulbs also have their lifespan.
Things that can affect the lifespan of your bulbs
The way you drive and where you drive plays a significant role in the longevity of your bulbs. If you drive more often during night time, then don’t expect that your bulbs will last as long as for a daytime driver. Same as the headlights, if they are used in daytime running light capacity, where they are on throughout the day, then this too will reduce both performance and longevity.
Another main reason which decreases the bulb’s longevity is vibration. This is most common in areas with poorly maintained road surfaces.
Replacing your bulbs regularly
It is recommended to replace the bulbs in pairs before they fail to ensure optimum use of your car bulbs. Replacing them will prevent from inconvenient and sometimes dangerous driving at night.
Check your owner’s manual if you are going to replace them on your own or take to a trusted mechanic to ensure that the bulbs are correctly fitted and the beam pattern is adjusted precisely to provide the maximum light available from your car bulbs.
