Headlights – they serve as a second eye especially when driving at night or during an advert weather condition such as rain, snow, fog, and so on. They also contribute to the beauty and general outlook of your car. Unfortunately most car owners take them for granted and ignore maintaining headlights as they should. There is a reason why headlights are considered one of the most important features of any car – especially at night as they protect against accidents or collisions, but the question here is, what happens when your Bentley headlight needs replacement?
The questions going through your mind are probably, how much would that cost? Will I find someone experienced enough to replace it without breaking the bank? Well, there’s no need to worry about that. By the end of this article, you’d learn the simple DIY method in changing your Bentley headlight.
That’s right. You can change your headlight yourself, no stress, no problems.
Before then, let’s discuss why replacing your headlights is of utmost importance.
Is replacing my headlight important?
Well, short answer: Yes! Long answer: Absolutely! Over time, headlights go through this disgusting process of oxidation when they’re exposed to the sun for a while, and the ultraviolet rays that beat down begin to cause your headlights to have this yellowish color.
You’re driving a Bentley, you wouldn’t want your headlights to be the reason your car is suddenly so unimpressive or why you are stopped on the road, now would you?
Now, this is where replacing your headlights comes in.
Also, you need replacement when your headlights burn out. Otherwise, you won’t be able to drive at night. While one or both bulbs of the headlight bulbs may burn out, you’d have to replace both of your headlights as the other bulb may not be too far behind.
Another reason you need to replace your car headlight bulbs is because you don’t want to risk your life and the appearance of your car in a collision because of oxidized headlights or burnt-out bulbs that you can replace yourself.
With that being said, the importance of replacing your Bentley headlights at the right time cannot be over-emphasized. However, before we get started on replacing your Bentley car headlights, let’s take a look at the different costs of each Bentley’s headlight bulb model.

DIY step to changing your Bentley headlight
Step one: The first thing you need to do is to pop the trunk. You’d find the screws fastening the headlight frame in place, gently loosen the screws so you’d be able to pull out the headlight frame from its hinges.
Step two: After that, go to the front of the headlight, and carefully pull out the headlight frame. Be extra careful when doing this, so you should pull from both ends so there’ll be a balance
Step three: Now the frame is in your hands, the next thing to do is to look at the side, you’ll find some wiring by side light indicators, they’re all color-matched, so it’ll be easier to fix back. Simply unplug those wires
Step four: Next thing you need to do is remove the bulb itself, and to do that, you’ll need to take out the screws that hold the bulb in place. You’ll find three screws, two on each side, and one at the bottom.
Step five: Now, the headlight is removed, you can fix the new headlight
See? It’s that easy to replace your Bentley headlights yourself. Although sometimes, the reason for a bad visibility could be due to oxidized headlight lens and this can be rectified by simply deoxidizing the headlight lens using a restoration kit. However, it is important to be careful and versed in the Bentley model you have. Or if you’re still confused, hand it over to an expert to avoid damages.
