If you’re an avid Porsche fan, you may know all about Porsche parts. However, for standards of quality and safety, it’s always best to check with professional Porsche dealers before conducting any repairs or maintenance on your own.
In many cases, it’s easier and more cost-effective to enlist our help with more involved services and repairs. When it comes to headlights in particular, we can explain how and when they need to be replaced.
Potential Issues with Headlights
If you’ve noticed your headlights don’t work as well as they used to, a number of things could be wrong, including:
- Dirty or worn headlight covers
- Alignment issues
- Malfunctioning fuses or wires
- Burnt-out or old bulbs
When to Get Your Headlights Replaced
Standard halogen light bulbs usually need to be replaced every five years or so. Over time, headlights can dim and wear out at no fault of the driver, and there’s really no way of preventing that.
However, upgrading to LED or other premium headlights may buy you more time. Plus, these types of bulbs produce enhanced light closer in color to natural daylight.
How Our Porsche Service Experts Can Help
If the illumination of your headlights is uneven, gradually dimming, or not working altogether, we can diagnose the issue. Sometimes dimming headlights can quickly turn into headlights that don’t work at all, so we don’t recommend delaying service. For optimal performance, we recommend replacing both headlights at once so you have an even, consistent flow of light.
