replace interior light bulbs

If the inside of your car has grown dim through the years, then it might be time to replace your interior light bulbs. Vehicles are usually equipped with a dome light and a map light. The dome light is the large light source typically placed in the middle of the car’s ceiling. Map lights are also on the car ceiling but are mounted closer towards the driver and the front passenger. These are strategically placed to have a concentrated light beam towards the driver and the front passenger only. Replacing the light bulbs in both the dome light and the map light is simple and can be done at home.

What you will need:

  • Flathead screwdriver/interior trim removal tool
  • Replacement light bulbs
    – Consult the owner’s manual in order to purchase the correct light bulbs.
    – Replacement interior dome light bulbs are typically 10W Festoon base.
    – Replacement map light bulbs come in two types depending on the vehicle. It is either a peanut light bulb, or a Festoon base light bulb.
  • Steps to Replace the Dome Light

    Make certain that the Dome light is in the “OFF” position and not on the “DOOR” or “ON” position.

    1. Identify the dome light in your car.
    2. Find the small opening slot between the lense and plastic molding of the dome light.
    3. Insert your screwdriver or interior trim removal tool and gently wiggle the lens free. Be very careful not to break the plastic tabs which secure the lens to the dome light. Take this opportunity to clean the lens.
    4. Pop out the old light bulb, and insert the replacement, being careful not to crack or break the bulb.
    5. Test if the newly installed light bulb works by turning the dome light switch ON.
    6. Pop the lens back into place paying close attention to the plastic tabs that hold it to the dome light.

    Steps to Replace the Map Light

    1. Identify where the hinge and the plastic tabs are on your map light.
    2. Gently insert the flathead screwdriver or interior trim removal tool between the lens and the plastic molding of the map light
    3. Very carefully wiggle the map light in the direction away from the plastic tab.
    4. Once dislodged, pull the lens out along with the heat shield.
    5. If your car’s map light uses a Festoon base light bulb, pop it out using your fingers or the interior trim removal tool. But if your map light is equipped with a peanut light bulb, unscrew the bulb as you would a normal household light bulb.
    6. Test the newly installed light bulb, and return the heat shield and lens carefully.As with any repairs consult your owner’s manual for specific handling and equipment needed to avoid further damage.

      Interior lights go beyond just illuminating the inside of your car. They are also a safety feature that lets you know if you’ve left the door, or even the trunk open. It is a convenience which we all have grown accustomed to, and often take for granted. Make sure your interior lights are functioning properly because it is definitely easier replacing the interior light bulbs than feeling around your car at night looking for your keys in the dark.

How to adjust your seat for maximum comfort and sa

  1. Adjust how close you are to the steering wheel.
    • Place one of your feet flat on the car floor. This will make pushing or pulling the seat much easier.
    • Pull the lever which adjusts your seat forward or backward.
    • Adjust the seat and stop at a distance you believe is sufficient for your feet to reach the pedals.
    • Place your feet on the pedals.

Note that your knees need to be slightly bent while your feet are resting on the pedals. Even though you should only be moving your ankles to shift from one pedal to another, having the space to fully extend your leg on the brake pedal during an emergency for maximum breaking force is essential. This is possible by having a slight bend at all times.

  • Repeat process till you get to a comfortable position.
  1. Adjust your backrest.
    • Sit back into the seat.
    • Lift the lever and adjust the backrest pitch up or down.
    • Fully stretch your arms out to rest your wrists on top of the steering wheel.

Note that your elbows need to be bent slightly when your hands rest at the 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock position on the steering wheel. Stretching your arms and resting your wrists on top of the steering wheel will place you in the optimum position.

  • Repeat process till you get a comfortable position

Do not sit up right, or with the backrest at a 90-degree position from the seat. This will make driving uncomfortable, and increase chest injury during an accident.

  1. Adjust your headrest.
    • Press the button located at the plastic base of the headrest.
    • Adjust the headrest higher or lower to support the back of your head.

Note that your head should NOT be resting on the headrest. Headrests are used to catch your head in the event of an accident, preventing your neck from getting whiplash. Make sure to have a fist sized gap between your head and the headrest.

Additional Steps

  1. Adjust your seat height.
    • Adjust the seat higher or lower in order to have a comfortable view of the vehicle’s surroundings.
  2. Adjust your steering wheel.
    • Pull the lever underneath the steering column.
    • Adjust the distance of the steering wheel along with the height to comfortably rest your arms during normal driving.

Lease or Buy

I was thinking the other day about the pit falls of leasing. Many TV ads and newspaper ads tout low payments yet skim by the "small print" so fast you can't even read it. Only to find out too late that your lease only allows for 8,000 to 10,000 miles per year, or you need $3500.00 due at signing, making that monthly payment much more than you anticipated when you add it all up. Oh how those over mile fees can kill you some are even more than 25 cents per mile, so those overages can cost much more than it would have if you had just bought the vehicle instead of leasing. The other thing is that you own nothing when the lease is over you used and paid for that much use of the car now you have to come up with down payment again where  owning the car gives you some equity. More thoughts on this another time. 

tips on improving your credit score

Nearly everyday people ask me how to improve their credit score, I tell them I am no financial adviser however I can tell them what lenders are looking for and doing these things may help you build a better score. Today I will address those who have no credit score: young, just our of school or you have always paid cash. Start by getting a cell phone in your own name, car insurance in your own name. Apply for a store credit card like Target or Gap, Walmart even if you only get a $500.00 limit, that is a start. Use this new credit card responsibly, it isn't free money you have to pay it back, over the course of a month things you have normally paid cash or written a check for like gas, groceries, utility bills, may all be paid for with the card. Use as much of the credit limit as possible but don't go over, then at the end of the month pay it all of except for a small amount like $50.00, I'm not encouraging you to go into debt, merely prove that you can handle a credit card. Do this for 6 months, most of the time the credit card issuer will call or write to you and congratulate you on how you are handling your credit and offer you a larger credit limit, accept whatever they offer. Now with your new limit use it for even more of your daily expenses keeping the money to pay it off in your checking account until the bill comes. After 6 months attempt to get a MasterCard, Visa, Discover or American Express card, if you are turned down do not dismay, just keep on doing what you are doing and try again in another 4-6 months. If you follow these tips and keep your bills paid on time you will be on your way to establishing a good credit score. Always pay your bills on time even music services now report to credit a bureau  if you don't pay and student loans left unpaid never go away!  There are a number of credit score building companies out there, Credit Karma and Experian are two of them, they have great help and it is free. 

Try your best – Every Time – Every Day

Try your best – Every Time – Every Day

 

 

"Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything." — Napoleon Hill

 

If you want something bad enough, you'll make it happen. However, if you don't want something, even the best of strategies won't serve you.

 

Unfortunately, most people are incorrectly seeking strategies of how to get "success" or some other thing. In this way, they are putting the cart before the horse.

 

The right strategy will show itself when you are clear on what you want. So how do you know what you want?

 

Most people are waiting for an epiphany. They're waiting for someone or something outside of them to rattle or shake them. Or, they just want a quick fix. Hence, the focus on strategy and not on vision and values.

 

If you're waiting for something to "wake you up" so you finally have the passion, motivation, or desire to put your whole soul into life, you'll be waiting a long time.

 

Rather than waiting, your only chance at fully living is to proactively do something yourself.

 

When was the last time you did a workout where you literally put everything into it?

 

When was the last time you really tried, I mean REALLY tried, at anything?

 

If you're like most people, you're probably putting half-thought and half-effort into most of what you're doing.

 

Paul Arden, the famed designer and author, once said, "Don't look for the next opportunity. The one you have in hand is the opportunity." He also said, "Too many people spend too much time trying to perfect something before they actually do it. Instead of waiting for perfection, run with what you got, and fix it along the way."

 

Interestingly, the research in psychology over the past few years has made a shift. It was assumed for decades that our minds could alter our physical state, but not the other way around. However, research is now showing that “Your body, even your posture, directly influences your mind and emotions. You change from the inside-out, yes, but also from the outside-in. And you can leverage that to your benefit”.

 

If you want more motivation, do something about it:

·         Put your heart into something. Not "the next thing," but the thing right in front of you.

·         Not into tomorrow's workout, but today's workout.

·         Not into tomorrow's work, but today's work.

·         Not into tomorrow's people, but today's people.

 

Thomas Monson has said, "There is no tomorrow to remember if we don't do something today."

 

 

 

Nothing feels better than trying your best. Nothing.
