We are here to help with all your light service needs – even car bulb checks and replacements. If you simply want to establish that your lights are working properly, for example as an add-on to another service, our experts will once again be happy to assist.
It is very important to keep an eye out for problems with your car lights and deal with any issues promptly. Failing to spot a broken light or deciding to leave it a few days before getting the problem fixed could easily result in an accident or attention from the police.
We tend to take the light and signal system on our vehicles for granted. But it incorporates quite a lot of different items, and every car has a slightly different arrangement. Here is a check list.
Making sure the bulbs that serve these functions are working is the most obvious task. But in addition to a thorough car bulb check, the lenses in each location need to be regularly checked for cracks, chips or anything else impeding the light. The reflectors should also be checked for stains, which can develop if water penetrates the light fitting.
Remember also that the MOT test includes items such as the rate at which the indicators flash and the alignment of the headlights. Your lights can be a cause of danger if they are set too high or if they aren’t illuminating the whole road, so it’s important to assess their alignment periodically.
We are very happy to carry out a thorough assessment of your vehicle’s light and signal system, whether or not you have noticed a specific issue in your own checks. Some straightforward problems such as headlight adjustment and bulb replacement can be resolved immediately. More important issues will be documented, and we will ask your permission to go ahead with a fix.
If you have ever tried to change a car light bulb yourself, you will know just how frustrating it can be. For one thing, it is rather difficult to work out exactly what type of bulb you need. It means trawling through documentation and dealing with confusing component lists. And when you have the right bulb, you can easily end up damaging it before you even get it into the mounting – just touching a halogen bulb is enough to break it completely. Even getting into the light assembly in order to replace a bulb is a tricky process requiring tools, time and patience. Who needs all that bother when you can quite simply ask us to do the replacement for you?
And there’s another reason to let us carry out car bulb replacements. Sometimes, what seemed like a broken bulb can turn out to be a little more complicated. For example, problems with electrical connections are often mistaken for simple bulb failures. In such situations, Bosch Car Service is well qualified to brief you on the likely causes and propose a solution.
