Headlight Replacement Service

The future’s so bright…

When it comes to your car, it’s important your headlights are bright. And that goes for the other lights in your car, too — taillights, blinker lights, license plate lights and interior lights. Because all your car’s lights help keep you and other drivers safe. Express Oil Change & Tire Engineers stocks the bulbs you need to keep all your car’s lights — like your future — shining bright.

How often should you have your headlights replaced?

Headlight bulbs can last several years. Of course if you drive more at night and use your headlights more, the lifespan of your bulbs might be a little shorter.

Different types of headlights have varying lifespans as well. Here are the most common types and the hours they normally last:

  • Halogen bulbs – 450 to 1,000 hours

  • HID/Xenon headlights – approximately 2,000 hours

  • LED headlights – as long as 30,000 hours

  • Laser headlights – about 50,000 hours

What are the signs you need a headlight bulb replacement?

Obviously, if your headlight bulb is out, it needs to be replaced as soon as possible. Flickering or dimming headlights can be a sign your bulb needs to be replaced as well. We recommend replacing headlights and taillights in pairs to avoid uneven visibility.

Your headlights and other bulbs in your car will be checked by your Express Oil Change & Tire Engineers technician as part of our 20-point courtesy inspection included with our signature 10 minute oil change. Come by your nearest location so you won’t be left in the dark.
