Question about 2000 Toyota Celica
Could you supply a drawing of all the parts and how to safely remove and replace the passenger-side front headlight? I don't want to break anything when I pry the old one out.
Remove the three bolds and one nut holding headlight housing in place. pull out housing turn bulb plug counterclockwise till bulb comes out replace bulb and reverse process to re-attach housing.

There are two seperate sockets for a 2000 celica (one for high beams/ day time runing lights and the low beams, which kick on at times of darkness) The head light bulb is at the top of the head light assembly behind the projector lamps (the part that looks like a giant clear marble) First disconnect the plug for the bulb. It just disconnects like a wall socket. Take off the black circular rubber protecter that surrounds the bulb in its housing. you have to reach in and push the retaining pin that holds the bulb in place. the pin fits in like a sideways version of a safety pin. you just need to push it in and up. the clip will swing open and you can take out the bulb. the bulb is attached to another housing piece. you will notice that the replacement bulbs do not have this piece. you just unplug the bulb and reattach the adapter to the new bulb. (DO NOT TOUCH THE BULB. it will go out once turned on because the oils from your fingers will heat the bulb and burn it out) place the bulb back in place. you may have to rotate it until it fits. there are grooves in the housing and the adapter piece that will make it fit in perfectly. close the retaining clip, replace the rubber protector. it tells you which side needs to be on the top. plug the light back in and your good to go. repeat on the passenger side. only difference is you have to take off the engine plastics that cover the left side. you can do this by taking off the front plastic just over the bumper and the left side will come off as well. the retaining clips just need to be pushed in the center. they'll pop out after you push that center button.
