There are a few reasons why it's essential to have the right headlight model for your car. One reason is that different headlights provide different levels of visibility. If you have a car that doesn't come with high-beam headlights, you may want to upgrade to a model that does. Another reason is that different headlights offer different light output levels — or you simply want to replace your existing headlights.

Headlights for every scenario

If you live in an area with lots of snow, you may want a headlight that provides more light output to see better in the winter. Finally, some headlights are designed to last longer than others. If you're looking for a headlight that will last for many years, you'll want to choose one that's made from high-quality materials. That's where we come in.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the key questions you might have about headlights and how they work as part of your car.

What headlight bulb fits my car?

If you’re stuck asking “what size headlight bulbs does my car have?”, you’ll find the answer here. Normally, this would take time out of your day, requiring research, cross-research and even force you to call up dealers and suppliers — but now you won’t have to wonder, can I put headlights in any car? At AAA Radiators, we have simplified this process. Just swing by our headlights page and search for a headlight that fits your needs!

Simply select your desired headlight and click the ‘check the fit’ option. A window will show up with five categories, ensuring that you get the correct fit.

  • Make — the brand or line of your vehicle
  • Model — the specific model of your vehicle (e.g. Spider for Alfa Romeo or RX-8 for Mazda, etc.)
  • Year — the year of production
  • Series — usually the body style of the car (e.g. the E 400 (212.265) series of an E-Class Mercedes-Benz)
  • Variant — the different versions of cars are distinguished by this category (e.g. the Petrol, 2L, 4Cyl, 106kW Series 2.0 (T32) of the Nissan X-Trail.

We stock various industry-leading brands, ensuring that your headlights are of the highest quality. And if you’re wondering, can you put LED headlights in your car, you’ll be pleased to know that you can!

You don’t want to have to regularly replace your headlights, which is why you can’t go wrong with our range:

Easy installation

Replacing car headlights is a simple process that anyone can do with the right tools and a little know-how. To install car headlights, you will need a screwdriver, a socket wrench, and a new headlight — the following process also covers how to install LED lights in car headlights.

The first step is to remove the old headlight. To do this, use the screwdriver to remove the screws that hold the headlight in place. Then use the socket wrench to loosen the nut on the top of the headlight. Carefully pull the old headlight out of the socket. The next step is to insert the new headlight into the socket. Again, use the screwdriver to tighten the screws and the socket wrench to tighten the nut. Once the new headlight is secure, turn on your car's engine and test the headlights to ensure they are working properly.

Follow these steps and you'll have new headlights in no time! If you are in doubt or have questions before you start, you can consult the vehicle's manual or simply call us and we can help you understand the process more clearly.
