Car Service: Always carry a spare set of bulbs with you

Car Service: We would always recommend carrying an extra set of bulbs with you in the car

Seems to be some kind of weird fact that headlight bulbs never go when the sun is out but on the darkest, coldest, wettest night ever. 

We’ve all been there I guess, you start the car or van, turn on the headlights and the bulb light comes on the dashboard and you can immediately see that there is no light on either the driver or passengers side and you know the bulb has gone. Only it’s late, you are in a rush and you need to get somewhere, so what do you do, you drive.  No the best option but the only option. 

Some petrol stations sell spare bulbs but because of insurance issues, it is unlikely that they will fit them for you so you need to make sure that not only do you have a spare set of bulbs for your car with you but that you know how to fit them.

The Thursday Tip is brought to you by Oliver’s Car Service Centre in Gorey where our trusted car mechanics offer car service and car repairs in Gorey.
