When to Replace a Headlight?

You should consider replacing a headlight when the assembly has become compromised, or when headlight parts and accessories start to show signs of wear – there is no need to wait! You can replace these components as a preventative measure so your lights will continue to perform properly.

You should definitely consider replacing your headlights in the following situations:

  • When headlights start to dim You can expect your headlights to dim over time. Although this is normal, you don't have to wait for your headlights to dim and burn out before you replace them. Instead, replacing them regularly to make sure you’re getting the most out of your car’s lighting performance.
  • When one headlight needs replacement If one bulb is gone or fading, the other won’t be far behind. In such cases, you should replace them both. Replacing your headlights in pairs also helps avoid uneven illumination, which can affect driving visibility.
  • When you have standard halogen headlights Consider replacing your standard halogen headlights with some high performance headlights such as LEDs or High-Intensity Discharge (HID) lamps. These headlights produce a whiter, brighter light that is closer in color to natural daylight and help improve your visibility at night.
  • How Much Does Headlight Replacement Cost?

    It depends on your vehicle’s make and model, what part is being replaced, as well as how much the dealership or mechanic will charge you for the service. Generally, costs fall in the following range:

  • $15 to $20 for a halogen bulb
  • $100 or more for HID bulbs
  • $250 to $700 to replace an entire headlight assembly
  • Mechanics advise that when your car needs refocusing of headlights, replacement of bulbs and fuses, and headlight re-wiring, the best option is to replace an entire headlamp assembly.
