Headlight Repair

Bellflower Headlight Repair

Headlight Repair has gone a long way over the past few decades. Headlight technology has come a long way. Headlights, also sometimes referred to as headlamps, and come in a variety of types from classic sealed beams to modern halogen lights, xenon and even LED bulbs.

A good set of headlights can help you out in hazardous weather. With a wide but focused beam of light that could save you and or the life of your passengers from night time road hazards or wayward oncoming traffic with limited visibility. Most older vehicles had to settle for dull and discolored headlights, now we can choose from the brightest white light or a 7-color RGB DRL Bar headlight that mounts on the top of your off-road vehicle, virtually erasing the darkness.

Today’s vehicles use standard or halogen bulbs, which are much brighter. HID lights use a high-intensity discharge to create white light for much safer driving conditions at night. You can also upgrade to LED bulbs. They cost more, but their powerful brightness makes driving at night safer and more comfortable.

Finding replacement headlight bulbs is crucial to a safe ride and heightened visibility. Unfortunately, not all headlights are the same so always consult with your owners manual for the specific lamp you may need. Do you need a whole replacement headlight assembly or do you have an H4 conversion and only need to find a headlight compatible with your housing. Replacing some bulbs requires dismantling parts under the hood. Sometimes an electric relay burns out and prevents electrical power from reaching the headlights. If this seems a bit overwhelming visit Orozco’s Auto Service of Bellflower our ASE certified technicians have the tools and the knowledge to install the right light the first time.

Acrylic headlights lenses
When exposed to UV light acrylic headlights will oxidize . This is because headlight lenses are manufactured with a clear top coat to help prevent the oxidization, but eventually, that coating will wear off. In time direct sunlight turns the hard plastic yellow. Visit Orozco’s Auto Service and our ASE certified technicians can make them look new again with special cleaners and polishes, and a hard protective finish. It’s much less expensive than having the lenses replaced.

Below is a list of a variety of available headlights products

HID HEADLIGHTS (XENON HEADLIGHTS) – High-intensity headlights give the most visibility to the driver. After filling a glass tube with Xenon gas, an arc of electric current is run through the bulb to produce incredibly hot plasma-filled white-blue lights.

PROJECTOR HEADLIGHTS – Once only found in European performance cars, but today they are common.

H4 CONVERSIONS – The most accessible aftermarket upgrade the average driver can make to their driving lights.

HALOGEN HEADLIGHTS – Combine two gasses to create a more efficient lighting environment than old-school filament bulbs.

REFLECTOR HEADLIGHTS – These are the oldest of the bunch and were often considered dull stock headlights.

LED HEADLIGHTS – Activate with a speed that almost makes them almost automatic headlights. small and compact, but unfortunately get very hot and need expensive components to make them fully efficient.

Even though your headlights are the most prominent lights on your vehicle there’s many other important lights. Brake lights, back-up lights, turn-signal lights, license-plate lights, fog lights, and more. With so many lights regular inspections should always be a regular part of your vehicles maintenance schedule. Additionally, Highway Safety Codes designate headlights and other automotive lights as part of your vehicle’s safety equipment. So, you can avoid a fine by ensuring that all your lights are working properly.
