Luckily, it is very easy to do at home by yourself.

First, you need to wear protective gloves and goggles during the process. This is standard as you will be getting into tight - and tough - spaces. It’s also best to replace both bulbs even if only one is out. This will ensure that they are even.

Next, if your vehicle has two bulbs per casing - one for high and one for low beams - then you need to identify which is which. The low beam bulb is usually on the outside, and the high one is typically on the inside.

Now it’s time to get into the unit itself. Some are easy to get into by removing a few screws. Others require access gained through the wheel well. It’s best to pop the hood in any case and be sure to read your owner’s manual for specific instructions.

Then, remove the plug for the bulb by releasing the clip with a small screwdriver. Next, take out the old bulb by turning it counter-clockwise. Install the new one by turning clockwise until you hear a click. Once you’re done, test them out before you hit the road.

That yellow hue puts 20 years on a car, easily. Caused by sun exposure, this issue can be prevented with the right maintenance.

It may sound strange, but good old fashion toothpaste with a toothbrush will go a long way. Put some paste on a cloth or towel and rub it all over the plastic light housing units. Follow that up with a toothbrush scrubbing. You can then rinse it off, and you will notice how clean and shiny it is.

This cleaning combo isn’t just good for the exterior of the vehicle either. You can also use these products to make the inside look a lot better. It serves as a polish to leave your cabin shining as if it were new again. Keep in mind that professional products are available for these specific purposes. However, these tips are for people who want to save a bit of money.

If your headlight casings are beyond a bit of elbow grease, then you may need to replace them. Luckily, you can find the correct pieces at Ford Parts BC. Swapping your old ones out will shave years off of your vehicle, and it will make you feel better about driving it!

Models with manual transmissions will have an added clutch that serves as a third, but automatics only include the accelerator and brake units.

Higher trim levels may also have upgraded pedals that can be re-positioned to suit your height and comfort level. These are known as power-adjustable pedals. They can be moved toward or away from you. The control is usually located in the central dash area. It is generally a button that you press up or down to rearrange the components beneath your feet.

These also come with sensors known as APS. If this aspect is faulty, it can cause the malfunction indicator light (MIL) to come on. Signs to look for to determine if the sensor is going bad include slow acceleration and having trouble picking up speed. It may come as a surprise, but these are fairly easy to replace. You can do it yourself or bring your vehicle to a professional mechanic for faster service.

Do you need to order a new Accelerator Pedal Sensor for your car, truck, SUV, or van? Get in touch with the agents at Ford Parts BC to find the right piece!
