Headlights and Tail Lights
Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru and Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep suggests checking your owner’s manual if you are looking to replace a headlight or tail light bulb on your vehicle. Once you figure out what kind of bulb you need, head to the parts store. The staff there are typically very helpful and can confirm what you need. To replace the bulbs you simply pop them out of the back side of their housing. Unplug the old and insert the new.
Be sure to test your current battery to see if it’s in fact dead. You can use your own tester or charger or take it to an auto parts store and they’ll should do it for free. If it needs replacement, unbolt the negative terminal followed by the positive. If there’s a ground wire, unplug that as well. Once the old battery is removed, connect the new one by simply reversing these steps. While you’re under the hood, Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru and Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep suggests using a metal brush to clean off any corrosion.
