Sidelight bulb replacement on 1997 toyota corolla

Open up the bonnet and you should see a screw attaching to the sidelight cluster. this is the only screw to... unscrew. after this pull the sidelight straight forward not sideways or any other way, then you should be able to access the bulb. putting it back is basically all that in reverse, just observe the little clip on the back of the cluster that it goes into the hole its meant to :-)
hope this helps as i had trouble at first

How do you replace cluster in accord exl 2004

There should be 2 screws at the top of your cluster panel and 1 on the bottom. Unscrew the two of them to take the bezel out. Behind the bezel there will be few more screws holding the actual cluster. Unscrew them as well and pull the cluster out. When its almost out disconnect the plugs behind it.

bonnet will not open with key

Not sure if the solution can be applied to 2006 focus, I have an European Mk2 Focus which also having the same problem. Here is what you can try.

To Open:
1. Jack up the car on the lifter.
2. Open bottom engine cover.
3. Loosen two (10mm) screws which secure the bonnet lock assembly. The screws located between air manifold and radiator.
4. Once the screws released, disconnect the alarm cable/socket connected to the lock assembly.
5. Try pull open the bonnet, it may require little force to pull the bonnet open due to a little white plastic link (~1" long, plus (+)shaped) is still connected between the lock assy. and cable assy. Failure to release bonnet lock is only caused by this plastic link!
6. Once the bonnet opened, the cable assy can be detached by pulling it from engine side out. Inspect the plastic link if it worn out.

To Install:
1. Attach lock and cable assy. Ensure the plastic link is properly inserted in its place between lock and cable assy. Test the mechanism with the car key.
2. Insert the whole assembly from engine side out.
3. Secure with two 10mm screws, reconnect alarm cable.
4. Reinstall bottom engine cover.

Hope this help. Sorry for my English.

unable to change 2009 sidelight bulb

On the sidelight, there is a Phillips screw which is hidden by the headlamp assembly. Remove headlight assembly and look for the Phillips screw. Once unscrewed, pull lens unit straight out and then you should be able to change bulb.
