If you have the same set-up as a lot of newer cars then it is not as hard as it may seem. This is an older post but someone else may find the information and be able to use it. When you open the hood on the inside there should be an electrical connection going to the headlights. Where that goes in to the headlight compartment there should be a rubber covering. Remove this rubber covering and disconnect the electrical connection. Once the cover and connection are out of the way you should be able to have access to the bulb. On a lot of newer cars, they have a contraption to hold the bulb in place the looks like a paper clip that has been bent in a lot of odd angles. If this is the system that you have it is easy from this point. At the bottom there is a slot that holds the paper clip (that's what I call it) in place and keeps pressure on the bulb to hold it in place. Apply pressure near the bottom and slide it to get it to release from the slot. At that point it simply swings up and the bulb is free to come out. Put the new bulb back in. Swing the paper clip thing back down and place the bottom end of it back in the slot. Replace the rubber covering making sure the prongs are all sticking out and then replace the electrical connection. Do the other side, it is always best to do headlights in pairs

How to Change a Headlight Bulb on a Toyota

<p><span>Replacing a <b>headlight bulb</b> is the most basic thing that you can do for your own car. Anyhow, if you have never changed a headlight bulb in your life, you may be a little bit lost at what to do with it. Replacing the faulty headlight bulbs on a very famous </span><span>Toyota</span><span> car is not difficult. Before you can replace one out, you need to have the bulb. It is best to go out in the sunshine when you do not need your car's headlights to pick one up. You need to know the maker and the model of your vehicle. For example, if you are having a 2001 Toyota Corolla, then you will need to look for that. At almost all auto stores, they will have books and photo albums by the <b>headlight bulb</b> so you can look up the right bulb that you need for your type of vehicle. After finding the exact bulb what you need, then you should get it. Now we can move towards the installation of your car's new headlight bulb!</span><br /> <p><span><br /></span><br /> <p><b><span>Installation Of Your Car's New Headlight Bulb</span></b><br /> <p><b><span><br /></span></b><br /> <p><span>You need to pop open the hood of your car and this is the first most things that you need to do. You can use a torch light to find the back of car's headlight. This is very easy to find, because they are on the back side of where they are located on the front of your vehicle. At this point of time, you need to observe, or you will observe that some </span><span>Toyota</span><span> made vehicles have a protecting cover of the back of their headlight unit. This is what requires a screwdriver to remove it. Just find all of the screws on the back plate, and then remove them all in order to reach the <b>headlight bulb</b>. After removing the screws, you should be able to take off the back plate easily. On some models of the cars you will observe that after taking off the back plate, here you can see many wires that are corked up in by plastic clips. At this moment, you will need to remove that plastic clip away and push all of the wires out of your way. You do not want to deal with any of that. As soon as you move all the wires, the dead headlight bulb will be seen.</span><br /> <p><span><br /></span><br /> <p><span>Removing your car's <b>headlight bulb</b> is as easy as taking a bulb out of a lamp. You can easily remove it by squeezing it to the left side. Now take your new bulb and put this bulb in and move it to the right side to lock it. It is a good idea to test the headlight at this point to make sure that it is working right before you put everything back together. Turn on the ignition switch of your car and turn the lights on. Now come out from your car to make it sure that the light are on. After ensuring that the lights are on and fixed properly, put the plastic clip back on wiring and put the back plate back onto its place. Make it sure that you insert all of the screws. Make sure that you picked all of your tools before closing the hood of your car, and here you have completed your changing <b>headlight bulb</b> task!</span><br />

How to change a headlight on a 1993 toyota corolla

How to Change Headlights in a Toyota Corolla. :--- the procedure is as follows:-------- 1)Unfasten the battery cables on the Toyota Corolla with an open end wrench and remove the battery from the engine compartment. Set the cables aside so that they do not come into contact with each other or any metal parts. 2)Remove the coolant and water containers that are in the engine compartment near the front of the motor by undoing the brackets that are holding them in place with a socket wrench and moving the containers aside. They only need to be moved enough to provide you access to the area behind the headlamps and do not need to be drained.3)Locate the headlight plug on the back of the headlight and turn the plug 1/4 turn counter-clockwise to loosen the plug. Then pull it straight back to detach it from the headlight.4)Locate the clip on the side of the plug and push it in and up to detach the old headlight bulb. Take the old bulb out of the plug and place the new bulb in the plug using a clean cloth to handle the bulb.5)Push the new bulb in to the plug and turn it until you hear the clip lock into place. Insert the plug into the back of the head light assembly and turn it 1/4 turn clockwise to secure the plug. 6)Repeat this procedure with the other headlight bulb and then move the coolant and water containers into place and secure then to the vehicle. Put the Toyota Corolla battery back in the engine compartment and reattach the battery cables. Thats it. This will help.

How do I replace headlight bulb for my toyota corolla 1998?

Open up the hood, and go in behind the fixture where the light is located. Grasp the headlamp electrical connector socket (with wires coming out of it) and disconnect it by pulling straight back. Pull off the black, soft rubber protective housing that surrounds the back of the headlamp housing. You will then see a spring clip securing the bulb. Push the clip in and up on an angle and it will release the bulb. Never touch the new bulb with your bare fingers, as the skin-oil you leave will greatly shorten the bulb's life. Place the new bulb assembly into the housing, push the clip in and up again, but in the opposite direction of the first angle to release it and it will lock. Then replace the black rubber housing-cover, plug the electrical connector back in, and you're in business.

How to replace headlight on Toyota Corolla 2000

1. Wiggle and pull the plug out of the back of the headlight. Note what is the top of the plug.
2. Pry the rubber seal from arond the back. You can start at the top with a screwdriver and then it will just peel off.
3. There is a wire spring clip holding the bulb in place. Push down on the side with the loop with he wire passing through it and push it up toward the top of the light. The single wire is hooked under a plastic notch and will release the spring clip.
4. The clip will rotate to one side and you are now able to pull the bulb out. Note the position of the contacts. One on top and two on the sides. No contact on the bottom.
5. Place the new bulb in the same way without touching the lens. Hold it from the back and slide it in.
6. Rotate the spring clip back and hook it under the plastic notch.
7. Replace the rubber seal. It is marked TOP for alignment. Push it in snug all around the rim. You can feel it pushed in.
8. Place the plug back into the light and you are ready to go.

NOTE: For the driver side, it will be the same except you must remove the battery in order to get to the bulb.

Toyota headlight

At the back of the headlight you should find a rubber cover of some sort, you need to pull that out. After that has been removed, a metal clip that serves as a lock to the bulb and the socket should be there. It hinged to one side and clipped to the other side of the headlamp. Open that one and you should have access to the plug. Pull it out and you should be able to twist the bulb a little to get it out. Do the reverse when inserting the new bulbs.

Changing headlight

Open the bonnet and look inside behind the headlight, there should be a plastic or rubber cover over the back of the light with 3 or 4 wires coming out of it, the wires should have a multi wired plug on the end of it, pull the plug out by the plastic multi point plug, don't pull on the wires. Remove the plastic or rubber cover and you should see 3 prongs coming from the rear of the headlight, that is the bulb, there are 2 spring clips that retain the bulb, push down on the clip and move towards the centre to release the bulb,
Change the bulb but take notice of where the 3 ppins on the bulb locate as 1 is a bit wider than the other 2 so it should fit only 1 way. put it all back together in the reverse order that you took it apart
