Replace headlights that are burned out or dim with brighter, LED headlights that increase visibility.
If you can change a light bulb in your house, you’re on your way to knowing how to replace headlights on your vehicle. Knowing how to install LED headlights and when to replace headlights are straightforward maintenance items that are great for both the seasoned pro and beginner DIYer.
Headlight bulbs on older vehicles may be a sealed unit, consisting of a lighting filament, reflector, and lens, while headlight bulbs in newer vehicles are replaceable bulbs that twist out. Once you know which type is in your vehicle, the steps to replace headlights aren't complex, so you're in luck there. We recommend replacing headlights regularly, especially since new headlight bulbs technology, such as that found in LED bulbs, shines more light down the road and off to the sides, improving your sight and giving you more time to react to potential hazards.
Pro Tip: Replace both headlights at the same time for improved visibility, and because when one headlight bulb fails, the other usually isn't far behind.

Consult your owner’s manual or check under the hood at the back of the headlights to determine if your vehicle has the older style, sealed headlights or newer headlights with replaceable bulbs.

Pro Tip: The glove prevents oil from your skin getting on the new headlight and causing premature failure.
