14.2.5. Replacement of lamps of devices of external lighting

Glow lamps should be replaced only with lamps of the same type. Before replacement of a lamp check that the corresponding light device was switched off. Do not take a glow lamp flask naked fingers, use a pure towel or cotton gloves. The fingerprints left on a lamp flask evaporate and besieged on a reflector that is especially noticeable on headlights and fog lights. Incidentally left fingerprints should be removed with the napkin impregnated with alcohol. It is not allowed to wipe the reflectors of headlights covered with a protective varnish, dry rigid rag and also to apply any cleaners or solvents to this purpose. Use soft wet towel wipes.

Halogen lamps are under pressure and can burst. Therefore at their replacement it is necessary to use goggles and gloves. When replacing xenon lamps there is a danger of traumatizing owing to high voltage! Surely switch off headlights and disconnect an electrical wiring from the battery. After replacement quickly switch on and off a headlight to remove residual stress. As a security measure put on boots with rubber soles.
