Subaru Headlights & Exterior Light Service Research in Redwood City, CA

It's no secret that the headlights on your Subaru are necessary for getting around the Bay Area at night. But what do you do if one of your headlights goes out? You could head over to the generic corporate auto parts store, get a headlight, and try to install it yourself. However, there is an easier and more reliable way.

The experts in our authorized service center at Carlsen Subaru know every inch of your Subaru, and they can replace a light bulb that's gone out on your vehicle quickly and easily. This way, you not only know that the burned-out light has been replaced with a new factory-approved light, but you also have the confidence that any delicate plastic parts remain unbroken.

Schedule service at Carlsen Subaru to get your headlights and exterior lights replaced.

Is There a Special Way to Replace the Headlight in Your Subaru?

In most cases, yes. A lot of Subaru models on the road today are equipped with halogen headlights. Even getting access to the headlight bulb can be tricky and sometimes require special tools. Once you do, the oils from your fingers can get on headlight bulb and cause it to fail after minimal use. If your Subaru is equipped with High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights, replacement becomes even more complicated. This is why we recommend simply leaving this matter to dealership experts who know your Subaru best.

What About Other Exterior Lights Like Brake Lights or Fog Lights?

If you have a newer Subaru model with LED brake lights, they should last the life of the vehicle without issue. So, if one of these goes out, there's likely a more involved problem at play. For models with traditional brake light bulbs, replacing them means knowing how to gain access without breaking any of the little plastic clips or connections. The same is typically true for Subaru fog lights.

Why Trust the Certified Experts at Carlsen Subaru in Redwood City, CA?
