Q: Driver's headlight out

asked by on

My driver's side headlight is out. The other one is fine. I think I just need the bulb replaced.

A: You most likely need a bulb replaced, howev...

You most likely need a bulb replaced, however, I recommend replacing both bulbs for the left and right side so they burn at the same brightness, and the other side does not burn out shortly soon after. I recommend seeking a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to come and test and replace the bulbs for you.
