Replacement Bulbs In St Helens
Ensuring your vehicle's lights are working correctly is critical for your own safety and also other road users as it allows you to be able to see and help others to see you.

At The FastFit Centre, our experienced bulb fitters can supply replacement bulbs suitable for your vehicle and fit these for you, saving you the trouble and getting you back on the road in no time at all.

More light on dark nights
If you have trouble seeing the road and other hazards on dark nights, upgrading your bulbs can make a massive difference. The Xenon Ultima from Ring Automotive utilises the latest advancements in filament technology which puts up to 120% more light on the road compared to a standard halogen bulb. Xenon Ultima produces a beam pattern that is 60m longer allowing other road users to be seen more clearly and giving you more time to react to potential hazards. The light output provides better reflections from road signs and markings for more comfortable and safe night driving.
Ultima LED & Osram Vehicle bulbs are available with us at The FastFit Centre. we also stock Lucus and other Automotive bulbs to suit all budgets
Checking your bulbs
Checking that your vehicle's lights are in good operational condition should form part of your regular vehicle maintenance check. Here are some of our simple checks to help you:
Headlamps should be cleaned to remove dirt to provide its maximum light output, as dirt on the headlamp unit can cause refraction of the light that can lead to glare for other road users. Similarly, in wintry conditions, you should clean any snow off your lights before starting your journey so that other drivers can see you clearly.
Ask a friend or partner to help you check brake lights and indicator lights by observing the lights while you apply the brake pedal and indicators respectively. Doing this simple check will show failed bulbs against the opposite side of your vehicle.
It’s not always immediately obvious when a car bulb blows, for example, sidelight bulbs are not always visible when your headlights are on. If visibility seems poor or other road users flash their lights at you, check your bulbs are operating correctly as they may be trying to warn you about bulb failure.
If you can hear one of your indicators blinking faster than usual, it means there is a fault or the indicator bulb has blown. You should try to rectify this as soon as possible as other road users won’t be able to see you turning.
You should try to replace your bulbs in pairs. If a bulb has blown and it is one of a pair of lights replacing both will give consistent light output.
Remember, if you are in any doubt, or find that you have a blown or faulty bulb, pop into the FastFit centre where our trained staff can supply, fit and align replacement bulbs for you. Don’t chance it, check your bulbs today to ensure your road safety as well as other road users in St Helens.
