When a headlight blows out, identifying the problem is easy. Once a bulb is no longer functioning, you won't be able to see the road as clearly. Moreover, other drivers may even honk when passing by to bring the issue to your attention. There are, however, several far less conspicuous signs that these critical components are experiencing problems. At Precision Acura Of Princeton, we want all motorists to understand the basics of good headlight maintenance.

Cracks In The Headlight Housing

If the housing for your headlights has sustained visible damage, the entire unit will need to be replaced rather than just the bulb. This repair will prevent undue wear and tear. It will also ensure that you're getting the proper amount of illumination when using your front lamps for night driving.

A Dulled Finish

?In addition to having cracks or other impact-related damages, your car's headlight housing could have a dull finish. Having the surface of a dulled unit restored will allow your lights to shine brighter.
