How to Buy a Good Quality Turn Signal Bulb

A turn signal is one of those things on your vehicle that you don’t often pay much mind to, but it’s a very important safety feature. Without this turn signal, how would people know which way you are planning to turn? With that said, a turn signal bulb does have a lifespan to it, which means if you have your vehicle long enough you’re bound to need a new bulb. Not to worry, finding a good quality turn signal bulb is not only relatively easy, but it’s a relatively inexpensive part to replace.

To get a better understanding of what to look for when buying a turn signal bulb, look at the following tips:

  • Good quality: What defines “good quality” in the case of a turn signal bulb is one that is reliable, shines bright and clear, is easy to replace, and lasts for a decent amount of time.

  • Check your owners manual: Before shopping, check your owners’ manual so you know what kind of bulb you need. Be sure you are aware of the make, model, and year of your vehicle, as this information is needed when shopping. Read the various boxes/packages carefully, as each bulb type offers its’ own list of features. Some will be brighter, while others may have a longer lifespan.

The turn signal bulb needs to remain in good working condition at all times in order to ensure your safety, as well as the safety of others. There’s also the fact that if your bulb isn’t working you run the risk of being ticketed.

Note: Not every car alerts you if the bulb is burnt out, so it may be wise to check it on your own from time to time.

BMW 330i - Turn Signal Bulb Replacement (Front) - Playa Del Rey, California
A fantastic experience. Kenneth is a consummate professional. He arrived on time, explained everything that he did, and expertly performed each service. He finished the work in less time than was quoted and noticed another issue with the vehicle but told me that only the gasket would need to be replaced, and that people might try to up-sell the entire assembly, which would be unnecessary. Needless to say, I am going to have Kenneth do the job and hopefully work with him on all future automobile repairs. Thanks again, Kenneth!

Kenneth is a fantastic mechanic. Professional and dedicated, Kenneth showed up on time and ready to go for our appointment this weekend, even though it was pouring rain. He threw on a poncho and went to work replacing a blown light bulb on my car as though it was any other day.

He did an excellent job of getting the system to work. I have a question regarding the handling of the light bulbs, I thought you were supposed to touch the glass?
