Ford F-350 Super Duty Headlight Assembly

Light Up The Road: Troubleshooting a Ford F-350 Super Duty Headlight Assembly

Driving at night and on dark areas require properly working headlights. Your Ford F-350 super duty headlight assembly is built tough to endure the car's vibration. However, it's still vulnerable to wear and tear over time. To ensure that you don't lose lights while driving, check your headlight assembly for damage. Here are some of the common signs of a broken headlight together with tests to verify the problem.

One of the headlights do not work.

This means that the headlight assembly has a burned out bulb. Though the headlight assembly can last long, its lifespan depends on the number of hours of use and the amount of vibration it's subjected to. A burned out bulb can easily be replaced, restoring the headlight assembly in good condition.

The light from the headlight assembly is flickering.

A loose light bulb is one of the factors that may cause the headlights to flicker on and off. To check if the bulbs are loose, remove the headlight's casing and inspect the bulb's connection. The bulb should be fastened securely in the socket. If the problem still occurs, check if the wiring to the headlight assembly has become loosened. This leads to instability of the power flowing to the bulbs. When this happens, repair the headlight assembly immediately.

The light is noticeably dimming while driving.

Your car's headlight assembly relies on the vehicle's electrical system to produce light. When a strain is placed on the car's electrical system, the lights from the headlight assembly tend to dim. It can also be due to numerous electrical devices, such as the radio and the automatic windows, running on the vehicle at the same time. Check the wirings to see if the headlight assembly is properly connected to the car's electrical system. Inspect the vehicle's battery and alternator as well to verify where the problem is coming from.

The headlight assembly seems clouded.

A foggy or clouded headlight assembly may be the result of severe weathering over time. Since most headlights today come with plastic lenses, they become more vulnerable to weathering, resulting in yellowish, clouded or foggy headlights. Dirt buildup inside the headlight assembly can also be caused by moisture entering a broken lens. Repair or replace the headlight assembly as soon as these symptoms appear.

  • Keep the Light On: Ways to Maintain Your Ford F-350 Super Duty Headlight Assembly's Good Condition

    Your Ford F-350 Super Duty Headlight Assembly maximizes your truck's safety, especially when driving at night. That is why keeping it in top condition is a must if you want to prolong the lifespan of your headlight. Below are some ways to take care of your vehicle's headlight and maximize your truck's safety.

    • Set a regular maintenance routine for your headlight assembly.
    • Because the headlight assembly in your truck consists of wirings, bulbs, and lenses, doing a regular checkup of those parts is essential. This ensures that all worn or damaged parts are replaced immediately before it causes other nearby components to break as well. Open the headlight assembly and visually inspect the wires, bulb connections, and the bulbs itself. Any cracks or other damages like loose wiring should be attended to as soon as possible.
    • Clean the headlights with safe cleaning materials.
    • When your headlights start dimming, it could be a result of a dirty, yellowed headlight lens. You can easily clean the lens using a lens polishing compound, more commonly known as a rubbing compound. Grab a piece of 1000-grit wet sandpaper, and rub the lens. However, if the lens has a major damage, a coarser grain of sandpaper, like 5000-grit, should be used. To make your truck's headlight look new, you may use a coarse red polishing compound followed by a fine white compound. After you're done polishing it, clean the lens with a safe cleaning agent again.
    • Reseal the headlight periodically.
    • To restore a heavily oxidized headlight lens, it's important the UV coating be restored as well. A new headlight lens has a UV coating to prevent it from turning yellow, cloudy, or gray. Once this UV coating gets damaged or wears out, apply a new UV lens coating or sealer. Reapply the sealer regularly since the sealer doesn't last very long. Another way to prolong the headlight lens' UV coating is by keeping it from getting damaged. Preventing damage on the UV coating will get rid of the need to restore a worn or broken headlight lens. Cover the lens with a clear urethane film. If it's not available, you may at least apply wax or paint sealer each time you wash your truck.
