    we can not get the bulbs to come out. Do they pull out or twist out?

  • Anonymous Jan 25, 2009

    Thanks for the info. The hard part was figuring out that you have to twist the bulbholder to get it out. I had to put TONS of force in order to twist it out, so I was putting faith in the solution I read here!

You have to remove the rear door inside panel.First thing is to remove the top and side interior trim panels,they just pop out by prying them away after they are out the metal retaining clips sometimes stay in the door,pull them out and put them on the plastic panel before reinstalling.Then the strap that you use to close it has a cover on it that you have to push up to get off then remove the 10 mm bolt that holds the strap.Then pry the panel away from the door I think that the bottom has two hooks on it which means that the top needs come off first so you can lift the panel hooks out of the slots.Once the panel is off you will see the bulbs they twist out and you have to pull the bulbs out.Good luck

You must remove as many of the retainers holding in the liner for the trunk lid to get at the bulb assembly. You must take the bulb socket and twist 1/4 turn counter clockwise to release it. You then gently pull the bulb directly out of the socket. reverse for installation.

How to charge tag light


Vehicles: 2004 Buick LeSabre 3.8L SFI OHV 6-cylinder

From sylvania.com:
License plate light bulbs - 2 compatible tag light bulb types:
(1) 161
(2) 161LL (LL stands for "Long Life")
SYLVANIA Long Life miniature bulbs perform twice as long as any standard miniature bulb. Designed for durability, lower maintenance and greater safety.

These are available online, and also at every auto parts store:
http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_Long-Life-Incandescent-Mini-Bulb-Sylvania_5080167-P_1259_R'GRPLAMPAMS___

Since no maintenance manual covers this, do what mechanics do when maintenance manuals fail - get creative.

Unscrew or pry off the lens cover, pull out the License Plate's Type 161 bulb, and insert a new 161 or 161LL bulb, and replace the cover.

Test your installation by turning the ignition key to the "Accessory" position, which will turn on the running lights and the license plate light.

Can the headlight assembly of a 2004 Toyota Sienna be disassembled to replace a faulty low beam bulb?


The whole bulb will have to be replaced. One bulb has high/low beam. You should be able to access it from behind the light assembly. You should have a locking device at the headlight assembly and be able to pull the assembly out to make it easier.

Toyota Sienna 2000 Mini-van. The driver's side power window.


I have the same problem with my 2000 Sienna.Probably window motor will need replacement. Frustrating. Turns out I have a lot of the same wear and tear issues with my Sienna as others. Automatic door sticks open or continually pops open, snapped rear hatch, tire pressure sensor always on. C'mon Toyota, I hope your newer models are more robust. FYI we take VERY good care of our van.

2004 sienna toyota van electric door not working


The first thing to check is the fuse that controls that door's motor. Look in your manual for the fuse chart. Determine where the fuse panel is and which fuse it is. Pull that fuse and take a close look to see if it has blown. If so, replace it with a new one of the same amperage
