how do you change the front parking light bulb on a 2008 toyota tacoma


if you can not access or see the bulb under the hood in the corner at the fender or inside of fender you will have to remove the headlight assembly and all car makers are making changing bulbs a pain. if you do have to remove the headlight assembly then the steps per repair manual are to remove the grille,bumper cover,bumper filler.believe me there are a lot of customers that wonder why us technicians have to charge so much just to put a bulb in but we did not design the car and it is crazy what you see now days.........good luck and i hope this will help and if i can give any more details let me know......the bulb will twist to remove when you get to it.........let me know how you come out with the project.......

how do i adjust headlights for a 2004 toyota tacoma


older vehicles have adjustment screws accessible thru trim on front of headlights, newer vehicles have adjustment screws in engine compartment on or near each headlight assembly (usually requiring a torx screwdriver) one screw will adjust side to side and the other will adjust up and down. park vehicle level with lights on & aim at vertical flat surface 20 feet away. Cover headlight you are not adjusting so it doesn't interfere with aiming the one you are working on. Driver's side- just below height of light on vehicle and to the right of straight, Passenger side- just below annd straight ahead. Adjust at low beam. Law enforcement and DMV prefer you have this done by shop.
