so i dont know much about cars. but here is my problem i was hoping to fix it myself since i cant see it being too hard and funds are tight right now.
so my driver side bulb is burnt out. there is a "halo" around the bulb that still lights up so i know its just the bulb. so i have to buy a replacement one easy right.
but since these are aftermarket headlights and they were on the car when i bought it i have no clue what they are. which i think means the bulb specified in the owners manual isnt necessarily the one in there.
should i just go in take the bulb out and bring it to a store and be like hey can you match this? or does it not work like that?
i leave for whistler on friday to go water ramping and i think it might be safer if my lights worked.
if anyone can help thanks alot!

goto the auto parts store and say you need a bulb being low or high beam for whatever your car is. In most cars it is very easy to change your light bulbs. But not in all cars. I have a Trailblazer and actually was quit hard to change. To much shit in the way. But if you really dont know how the people at the auto place can do it for you.... Also DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS ON THE NEW BULB!! it will leave your fingerprint causing there to be more light concentrated at the print, the bulb will explode. peace
seriously dude get over it and go at it(if she's up for that), turn the lights off, go wild while that raunchy yet titillating scent fills the air, and when your done admire that pollock like artwork that used to be the bed sheets---PASKIINGSUCKS

Highs and lows will look differently no matter what. Replace the two that are out. Bulbs can be anywhere from like $8 a piece, all the way up to $150 a piece if you are running HIDs. A good set of sylvania silver stars, which are great lights, will run you about $30.
If you have halos around your headlights...could be a good chance you have HIDs cause alot of those setups utilize HIDs.
If that is the case, you definitely need to make sure you get the right bulb and it might be pretty pricey, just a heads up.
Also as other people said, replace both of the bulbs (if you are changing low beams, both lows, if highs, both highs) and don't touch the bulbs. The oil on your fingers will create localized hot spots when the bulb is running which will cause it to prematurely go out.
