Our MINI service team is here to give you car care advice and help you be a responsible car owner. Sometimes the smallest, easiest car services can make a huge difference to your safety on the road.
For example, visibility is key for driving at night, especially during the winter when the days are shorter. That’s why we want to make sure your headlights are in top shape here at Orlando MINI.
When to Service Your Headlights
Is it difficult to see at night, especially when you’re not using your high beams? Standard halogen lights dim over time, so you may be due for some new bulbs.
If you’re having more drastic issues like a light completely not working, you may have an electrical issue under the hood. Keep in mind that sometimes, headlights are simply foggy because they need a good clean.
Tips for Headlight Maintenance
- Replace light bulbs as needed
- Clean headlight covers with soap, hot water, and a scrub brush
- Consider upgrading to high-performance headlights
- Adjust headlight positioning if needed
Headlight care needs to be taken seriously, given that safe driving requires you to be able to see. Not to mention, well-functioning headlights improve your reaction time and help you avoid hazards.
Don’t forget to check on your other lights as well, like your brake lights, taillights, and blinkers. If you run into any issues, feel free to call or come by our service center for assistance.
