Question about 1995 Toyota Corolla

Changing the brake light lamp/bulb

How do I remove the brake light assembly to change the bulb / lamp on my 1995 Toyota Corolla? I've removed the 2 screws on the outside, covered by the trunk lid, that hold the assembly in place. I've removed the nut from the threaded post on the inside wall, under the "carpet"; there are also 2 plastic posts on the wall that hold the assembly in place: any thoughts on how to remove them without breaking them? thanks - James

The best solution I can give you if you are unfamiliar with this is to take your car to a Advance Auto or Parts America since if you buy the bulb from a retail location they will install it free of charge.

This also applies to:

Batteries
Wiper Blades
Head Lights
Air Filters
and a few other quick jobs. Simply ask a sales tech what all they offer for free and I am sure you will be pleasantly surprised it is free ;).

SOURCE: Can't remove back light to change reverse light bulb.

Sorry I have been out of town. I went to the library and borrowed the Chilton book. I already had it right, but the back light cover was just not being cooperative. After jiggling it a little more, it came off and I was able to change the bulb. I wish they had made it simpler like the old Camry _ where there wasn't so much difficulty getting at the bulbs.

Thank you for checking.

Just remove the 4 screws and then slowly pull the cluster out and reach behind and disconnect the plugs on the back of the unit and then remove the cluster. The bulbs can be removed by turning them and pulling out.

SOURCE: 1997 Toyota Camry LE. During wet weather, water

Most of the problems come when its raining and if its not being driven and water still comes in then its the bonnet rubber and if when its being driven then its due to the rear wheel throughing up water under wheelarch and somewhere theres a crack in the weld or somewhere and it will find its way in..
So if not using it clean it out and when rain stops look inside no rain no leak Have a goodday

I need to change the brake and tail light on my 1996 toyota corolla . I would need a manuel on that please.


The steps to replace the brake light bulb on a 1996 Toyota Corolla:

The bulb needed is type 1157. After opening the trunk you need to remove the trunk liner on the side (right side for this example)where the brake light bulb is out. The plastic capture grommets hold the liner in place. Once the grommets are removed there is a nut (10mm) that is a bright brass-like color. This needs to be removed. Then on the outside of the trunk on the tail-light lens left side there are two nuts black in color (10mm) they need to be removed. Now the fun starts .... you needto slide the whole assembly back. You will note two black plastic posts on the rear quarter-panel, do not remove these ... these are used to hold the tail-light assembly in place since on the inside of the tail light assembly there are two rod-like protrusions that slide into these brackets. So.... remove the screws and wiggle the assembly back and it "should" slide back so that you can get at the bulb socket hat you twist to remove from the assembly. Now the bulb is visible and you reverse the order of steps to get it all back together .... a miserable design!

How do I change the bulb in the driver's headlight of my 95 Toyota 4Runner?


You must remove the four screws that hold in the side marker lenses (two per side/lens) pull the lens forward & out to the side. Next remove the grille, to do this you need to push in both top & bottom of the plastic clips that hold it in place. These clips usually break since they are old (1995) & made of plastic. Each clip costs $1.99 from the Toyota dealership (for .02 cents worth of plastic!) you will probably need a few even though they are way overpriced. Then once the grille is removed you can remove the four bolts that hold the lens assembly in place, once it is removed you unplug the bulb & then unscrew the plastic retaining ring that holds the bulb in place & remove the bulb from the housing. Installation is the reverse of removal - BEWARE; do not touch the glass of the bulb, oil from your skin will cause hot spots on the glass & lead to premature failure of the bulb. If you do happen to touch it, clean the bulb with alcohol prior to assembly.

Method #2; remove the air box on the drivers side (behind the headlight & you can remove the bulb from the back. On the passenger side, remove the battery & the washer fluid reservoir & you can remove it from the back also. Either method is time consuming & an unusually bad hassle for something as routine as changing a headlight.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Open the trunk.
  3. Unfasten the nuts or other retainers from the rear trim.

  5. On some vehicles, you may have to remove the rear fascia/body panel and light assembly to get to the sockets.

On some vehicles, such as this 1986 Grand Am, you must remove the rear body panel with the lamp

Depending upon vehicle application, remove the lamp socket either by rotating it counterclockwise (approximately 1/4 turn) until the plastic tabs disengage, or by squeezing the metal tangs while pulling the socket from the light assembly

Remove the lamp socket assembly by turning it counterclockwise, then pulling it out

Generally, side marker lamps use small bulbs with flat, blade-type bases, and tail lights/turn signals use larger, round-based ("bayonet") bulbs.
  1. Remove the bulb from the socket using the appropriate method. Bulbs with blade-type bases pull straight out, while those with round bases and protruding pins (bayonet-type bulbs) must be depressed, then rotated counterclockwise (approximately 1/8 turn) before pulling out.

  2. Install the lamp socket using the appropriate method. Depending on the type of socket, either engage the plastic tabs, and rotate the socket clockwise (approximately 1/4 turn), or push on the socket until the metal tangs engage.
  3. Install the housing cover nuts.
  4. If removed, install the rear fascia and light assembly.
  5. Install the rear trim.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable, then check the operation of the rear lights.

How to replace Marker lamp in 1999 Toyota Corolla


Open the hood. Observe the area above the right headlamp, close to the fender. You will see a phillips screw that holds a plastic tab. Remove the phillips screw. After removing the screw, pull the marker lamp assembly towards you. It may be real tight, if it has never been removed before. You need to pull the light assembly out of 2 retention sockets behind the marker lamp. Rotate the bulb socket to get to the bulb, replace the bulb, & slide it back in.Easy job.
