  • Flimsy
  • Low Quality

Best Uses

    Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Headlight Switch:

    The first switch would get stuck and had loose pieces rattling inside. I had to do a warranty exchange before I was able to install it.
    The second switch feels just as flimsy but worked for less than a week.
    Buy another higher quality brand

              A:

              Yes, Jazzy, the headlight switch could possibly be the problem. But, without the presence of your vehicle I would not be able to properly diagnose it, nor provide you with a 100% answer. I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

              For help with your project, I recommend getting a repair manual specifically for your vehicle. It should be able to help you with detailed instructions on how to do many things.
