How to replace a car bulb like a mechanic

After a few days of trying to make do with only one functional car headlight, I have finally been able to replace the defective bulb – by myself! I never knew that replacing it would be very easy!

I’ve been trying to squeeze in a bulb replacement schedule with our car shop but couldn’t because of our hectic work schedule and other commitments.

As an IT consultant, I’m fairly confident when it comes to tinkering with complicated IT infrastructure systems, but find myself a helpless newbie when it comes to tinkering with my own car.

I eventually decided to go the do-it-yourself route and bought a new pair of headlamps for “Puti”.

After reading the car manual, I realized that replacing the bulb wasn’t that complicated. When it came to actually doing it, it was easy as pie, and I couldn’t believe why it took me that long to do it myself.

It was just a matter of popping the hood, locating the defective bulb, removing the power source connector, removing the rubber gasket holding the bulb, unlocking the bulb clamp, removing the defective bulb, putting in the new one, putting everything back in reverse order, and that’s all she wrote!

Now the only thing left to do is to replace the other good headlight, since the new one that I placed was way brighter. Haha. 🙂
