    New Car Headlight Bulbs in Hamilton

    Car headlamp bulb installation service in Hamilton

    It is important to replace your headlights (headlamps) for two reasons – firstly, weak headlight performance can increase the risk of an accident when driving at night. Even if you can see a car coming, they may not see you. Secondly, a blown headlight bulb can make your car a target for police or cause it to fail a Warrant of Fitness.

    There are several reasons you may want new headlights:

    • Blown bulb – Sometimes, the bulb can blow, leading to no light being produced at all. When this happens, the bulb will need to be replaced. In some cases, a blown bulb may not actually be the cause of the light not working. The wiring can become damaged and need replacement. Our mechanics can quickly determine what part of the lighting system is not working and fix it.
    • Bulbs producing insufficient light – Over time, your car’s bulbs can become dim. Most cars on New Zealand’s roads use halogen headlights. Due to the way these lights work, they are prone to developing a buildup of deposits inside their bulbs. This results in less light able to get out of the bulb, producing a dimming effect. When this happens, the deposits will need to be removed.
    • Failed Warrant of Fitness – In order to pass a Warrant of Fitness, your headlights need to work correctly. They must both function correctly and provide a sufficient amount of lights so that other vehicles can see you from a distance.

    Have you failed a Warrant of Fitness for blown headlight bulbs?

    Your car may fail a Warrant of Fitness if any of the following issues are present with your headlight bulbs:

    • One or more bulbs are not producing any light, due to either a blown bulb or damaged wiring.
    • The lighting produced by your headlight bulbs is inconsistent and cuts out as you drive. This can point to issues with the alternator or charging system.
    • The lights are dim and don’t provide a clear view of the road in front of you.
    • Your headlight beam pattern can be incorrect or the headlights might need aligning
