Whatever time of day you drive, having properly functioning headlights is important. Maintaining your vehicle’s headlights should be a regular part of your overall maintenance routine, and Kirby Kia of Ventura in Ventura, CA is here to assist if you ever need help with this critical automotive task.

In many cases, it’s not necessary to change out the entire headlight assembly in order to replace a burned-out bulb. Your owner’s manual should provide information on replacing bulbs and should also mention if doing so will require the attention of a professional mechanic.

Over time, the plastic headlamp cover may become cloudy or discolored by dirt, oxidation or exposure to road chemicals. The surface can be cleaned and treated with denatured alcohol to restore the appearance and functionality. Replacement of the unit may be necessary if cracks develop in the plastic casing or if the lighting unit no longer works properly.
