Research on Headlight for GMC Acadia
Headlights on your GMC Acadia are both important for driving legally and safely after dark. Occasionally, you may have one or both headlights stop working. You'll need to discover the cause of the problem before you begin to purchase replacement parts, because you don't want to buy just a new bulb only to find that your headlamp assembly has shorted out. Identify whether you need to change just the bulb or learn how to do GMC Acadia headlight assembly removal prior to taking apart the front of your vehicle.
What Do Headlights Do?
Headlights are the bright lights at the front of your vehicle that let other cars on the road see your location after dark while the lights illuminate the roadway in front of you. You are required by law to have both headlights working, and you could get pulled over if one of them is nonfunctional. To avoid this, even if you rarely drive at night, it's still a good idea to do weekly checks of all your Acadia's headlights. This will give you enough advance notice to replace a bad light before you get a ticket. It also allows you to check the condition of your taillights, which are hard to see when you're driving with them on.
Types of Headlight Bulbs
The GMC Acadia used one of two types of headlight bulbs, depending on the trim level. The standard GMC Acadia headlight bulb is the halogen light. This is the usual bulb used in most vehicles. It's the cheapest option while still providing enough light for driving after dark. Other Acadia package options used upgraded high-intensity discharge (HID) xenon lights. These lights are brighter and have a whiter glow, allowing you to see more of the road, clearer, but the downside of HID bulbs is their price, it can cost three times as much as a standard bulb to have a single HID lightbulb replaced on your headlights, but you cannot downgrade to halogen lights unless you also change the headlamp assembly.
The headlights can be upgraded from halogen to xenon by changing the headlamp assemblies. You must do this if you want to change the type of headlights you have on your GMC because the bulbs require different ballasts, which are inside the headlamp assembly. The same is true if you want to change from HID to LED lights. LED lights are a very expensive option, but they last the longest. They can only be purchased as a custom upgrade to your GMC Acadia and were not part of any trim levels of the original run of the Acadia.
Cost for New Headlights
You could spend a lot for new headlights, but you'll pay less for a new bulb than you would for a new headlamp assembly, generally. If you have a 2014 GMC Acadia headlight bulb that is HID and needs to be replaced, it will cost a lot more for a replacement than if you needed a new halogen light. For instance, the cost for a mechanic to do a 2013 GMC Acadia headlight bulb replacement ranges from $93 to $124 for a standard bulb and $338 to $386 for a xenon or HID bulb. To save money, you can always replace your own headlight bulbs, and to save on the bulbs or headlamp assemblies, check out PartsGeek.com.
