Very easy, 2 or 3 minutes.
Remove radiator grille. 2 plastic fittings on top, quarter turn and lift out grille.
Remove complete headlight. Simply lift out 2 L shape retaining pins. Disconnect lead. Ease out complete headlamp unit.
Remove back of headlamp unit to access bulbs. Disconnect lead from bulb while bulb still held by clip. Then release clip to remove bulb.
Reverse process to fit.

    I am not confident when it comes to fixing cars but this was as easy as the instruction says. Took me 15 minutes from start to finish with no tools needed. Cheers

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 headlight lamp drivers side

On the back, engine side of the headlights there is a rectangular plate which allows access to the bulbs (lamps) to remove this there are locking bars, pry these, up and down away from the plate, remove plate.
The headlamp bulb is the larger one and is retained with a spider clip, above the bulb pinch the spider clip and push slightly forward while opening the pinch. The bulb should now be loose with a wiring block attached.
Slide the bulb out of the recess, remove the wiring harness by pulling the block away from the bulb.
You can now replace bulb, which should have a protective sleeve of foam or card protecting the glass, do not touch the glass of the bulb, touching the glass will cause the bulb to blow when it gets hot.
To replace bulb, push spider clip away from recess, while holding the metal part of the bulb remove sleeve and insert bulb into recess, turn the bulb to ensure it has seated flat into recess, refit spider clip over bulb pushing forwards then pinching, refit wiring harness.
Check the lights to ensure bulb is working.
