Bulb Replacement FAQ's

How to know if bulbs need replacing?

It’s not always immediately obvious when bulbs blow. If visibility seems poor or other road users flash their lights at you and you're not sure why, pull over and check your bulbs.

If you can hear one of your indicators blinking faster than usual, it means there's a fault or the indicator bulb has blown. You should get this seen to immediately.

How to check your car bulbs?

Checking your vehicle's lights should form part of your regular vehicle maintenance checks.

Headlamps should be kept clean and clear for optimum light output.

Check brake lights and indicators by asking someone to stand outside and watch, while you press the brake pedal and operate the indicators.
