However, before starting the whole process, this you tuber is explaining what safety measures are needed in order to do this by yourself.
The components we need to have for our safety are rubber gloves and goggles. We need goggles because we definitely do not want blinker fluid ending up in our eyes. If blinker fluid ends up in your eyes it will cause uncontrollable blinking until you wash it out. For this DIY maneuver you will also need a funnel, some elbow grease and extra bulbs. Because, why not changing the bulbs as well.
