October Car Care: Maintaining Your Cars Lights

October 23rd, 2019 by

Most car owners tend to pay the least amount of attention to their cars headlights and taillights. However, your cars lights are extremely important when it comes to your overall safety. Your lights allow you to see the road during the night and in low light conditions. Not only do they allow you to see the road, they allow others to see you on the road! Maintaining your cars lights is extremely crucial during the winter time considering it gets dark earlier this time of the year.

Here at Competition BMW of Smithtown, we compiled a small list of tips on how to maintain your cars lights.

  1. Dust and debris can layer on top of the cover of your headlights, taillights, and brake lights. Getting your car washed can help solve this problem. The interior of your lights covers should be cleaned as well. You can look at your vehicles owner’s manual for instructions on how to remove the bulb covers, or you can see a professional and have them do it for you.
  2. When you change any of your lights, it is important to understand that even if one light needs to be replaced, you should replace both. You do not want to be driving with one light significantly dimmer than the other.
  3. You should see a professional if you feel your lights are not as bright as they should be. Waiting too long can result in one or all of your bulbs going out. And what’s worse than driving in the dark with dim lights? Driving with no lights at all! It’s best to get your lights checked by a professional as soon as possible to avoid this from happening.
