Replace Auto headlights

Category: How To Auto Repair

If you find a headlight to be dead, you can 
1. Go to YouTube and watch video on how to replace these headlights.
2. Before you buy light bulb, make sure you can correctly light bulb out of the car and replace it.
3. If you can, then go to Wal-Mart or Canadian Tire and buy a headlight for  $10-$15

Cost for a garage shop should charge you no more than $10 labour, maybe $30 in total. 

Canadian Tire may charge you $40 labour plus the cost of the light bulb, usually marked up to another $20. Total price can be around $60, excluding tax.

Authorized Auto Dealer may charge you $20 labour. Cost for light bulb will be another total $20. Price for an authorized dealer could be around $40 excluding tax.

It should take a skilled repairman 15 minutes. It is an easy job that you should be able to perform. (It took me two hours to figure out, but I am no skilled repairman.

Generally, headlights from the manufacturer can last 5 years. Retail headlights could last up 2 years.
