No need to sell your car in Dubai,UAE if you see a fused headlight bulb in your car. Where some cars make it an impossible task to change the light bulb in the headlight, others offer a straightforward way to change it without anyone’s help. Here is how:

Type Matters: It is extremely important to install the correct type of bulb with the required wattage. Check  your owner’s manual, or do a quick online search, to determine the exact specifications required for your used car.  


  • Manual: You must keep your vehicle owner’s manual handy as it will guide you about the type of bulb you need and will direct you to the specific position where is the bulb is installed.
  • Screwdriver: This might not be necessary for newer versions of cars, but for old ones you would need to unscrew some screws and would therefore need a screwdriver around.
  • Alcohol swabs: To remove any dust or fingerprints from the bulb gently wipe it clean with rubbing alcohol.


  • First things first, whenever you work on any part of the car that is connected with the electrical system it is best to open the hood and disconnect the battery.
  • Next remove the dust cover which may require a small twist to come off. Now gently remove the light bulb which in some cars is held in by a small clip. Press down on the clip and pull out the bulb without exerting too much pressure as it can break.
  • Holding the bulb socket firmly, position the bulb housing and insert carefully. Slide it back in place and make sure it fits back in its spot. Attach the dust cover and connect the battery again. Turn on the engine, switch on the headlight and feel proud.
