The battery can be replaced. At the comfort of your own home, you can do a battery replacement after it has lasted some years. You should buy a battery that fits the engine size and the model of your car. Removal of the positive and negative cables then undoing the holders of the battery comes after removing the cable clamps that permits removal of the old battery. Lift out the battery and put the new one in. The last thing to do is to wipe away debris on the clamps then reconnect the cables.

To replace the Non- headlight bulbs is the next repair. The replacement of the different bulbs in cars happens because they tend to burn out. Do it yourself by purchasing replacement bulbs then unscrew the retaining screws then remove the lens. You should remove after doing this. All these should be done while wearing gloves that prevent oils from getting into the glass. Only redoing the paint can restore the paint chips. Rusting and more damage will be as a result of the unattended situation. Paint, grease and paint applicators are the items needed. Let it dry for 30-45 minutes then apply the grease to seal after using the applicators to dab paint on the chipped areas.

Sunroofs are great until they start leaking. This could be due to clogged drains. It is very easy to repair this. Using a shop vac, place it in the drains to suck out any dirt. Put water in the drains to examine it and if water drains out it is working well. A speedometer cable is used for more severe clogs as it reaches the drain better.
