There are so many parts to our cars that we don’t have time to think of something as small as the light bulbs. That is until one time at night when we open the doors and we can’t see anything because they have burnt out. You can try to live without them but you will soon find out just how hard that can be.

Changing your car’s light bulbs is very simple though it might look a bit confusing when you have never done it before. The first thing you will have to do is to make sure that all power to the light is turned off. On your dash you will find a switch that will do this for you. This will help to prevent you from shocking yourself.

The majority of light dome covers can be removed by unscrewing it or by popping it off. Some use plastic tabs to keep it in place. After you have removed this cover you will need to take out the old bulb. You should already have the new bulb with you. To know what type of bulb to buy you can visit an auto parts store and tell them the make, model, and year of the car. They will be able to give you what you need with that information.

Be careful when pulling out the light bulb so that you do not break it. Observe the socket that it was in and make sure that there is no dirt inside of it. Otherwise this could cause the new one to burn out quicker then it should and force you to spend more money. If there is dirt you can use a simple emery cloth to clean it.

To replace the light bulb you need to grab the glass part of it and push it into the socket. Make sure that it fits inside of it evenly and snaps into place. After it is in you can place the dome cover back on and turn the light switch on to see if it works.
