I just ordered a set of headlamps for my Hyundai Accent. Can I replace them myself, or should I see a mechanic?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Pat, Have you ever done this type of work before? And do you have any automotive tools? If you answered yes, then 'go for it'. If you answered no, then I'd recommend you to to a shop. If yes, then I'd suggest going to YOUTUBE.COM

Helaine Kurot, Owner/Technician at 360 Automotive It should be two 10mm bolts on each headlight assembly holding it on. Replacing the assembly should be doable.

Panel of  Automotive Women Speakers, Panel of  Automotive Women Speakers at, Inc. Pat-- You can replace them yourself, however, be careful not to blow a fuse unless you know where your fuse box is located. If you blow a fuse, it's easy to replace, if you know where it and your extra fuses are located. If you don't know this information, I would suggest leaving this kind of replacement to a professional who can handle that kind of situation if it occurs. Good luck!
