Many car owners equip their vehicles with halogen headlights. One of the problems with such light sources is their tendency to burn out quickly.

In addition, many modern cars are designed in such a way that replacing lamps turns out to be a rather difficult task, sometimes requiring dismantling the battery or even removing the bumper.

However, experts offer several ways to prevent headlight bulbs from burning out quickly.

  • First method is to reduce tension. To do this, you can use special regulators.
  • Second way — checking and, if necessary, repairing wiring. Old wiring can cause significant voltage loss.
  • Third tip — Consider replacing the generator. This may be necessary if the wrong voltage is set in the on-board network, which leads to rapid depletion of halogen lamps.

It is also useful to pay attention to the waterproofing of the headlights. By protecting light sources from moisture, lamps last longer.

Finally, it is important not to touch lamps with bare hands to avoid leaving fingerprints on the light source. It is recommended to wear gloves when replacing the lamp.
