Like everything else, when a headlight, rear light or even indicator fails, it never comes at a convenient time. Both dangerous and illegal, it's a common frustration that has to be sorted out as soon as possible, especially if bad weather and fog is on the way. It's pretty easy to tell if headlight bulbs have gone, but it's not as obvious if other bulbs need replacing. Therefore it's good practice to check them every week. If you do find one that's failed, we can help you out.

Replacement Car, Van and Truck Bulbs In Merseyside
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.
A blown bulb will also result in an MOT failure, so making sure that you check your lights on a weekly basis is essential, not only for your own safety but for other road users.
Replacing blown car bulbs can be a fiddly business, particularly on some vehicle models where the bulb housing is located in close proximity to other engine components and even sometimes via the wheel arch on vehicles such as Renault. 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.
Better bulbs - higher performance
At The FastFit centre, we recommend and stock bulbs from Lucas, Ring Automotive, and Osram. These are the best quality bulbs you can buy. We stock a wide range of automotive bulbs including those suitable for headlights, brake lights, indicators and fog lights.
We stock both standard bulb replacements plus a range of performance bulb upgrades to aid nighttime driving such as Super bright, Xenon and LED.
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 and 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 wintery 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 on 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' safety in Merseyside.
