Tales of an auto shark – Newbie no more

After weeks of trying to make do with only one functional car headlight, I’ve finally been able to replace the defective bulb by myself! And I never knew that replacing it would be very easy! Ha!

Conne and I have been trying to figure out when to squeeze in a bulb replacement schedule with our car shop but failed to do so for quite some time because of our hectic work schedule and family commitments.

As an IT consultant, I’ve been very confident when it comes to tinkering with complicated server and IT infrastructure systems, but the helpless newbie in me prevails when it comes to fixing my own car.

And so after finally buying a new pair of headlamps for “Puti” I finally tried my luck on the thing.

After reading the car manual, I realized that replacing the bulb wasn’t complicated. And so 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 the dang thing myself.

It was just a matter of opening the hood, finding the lamp’s location, 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 viola! You’re done!

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