The headlight switch gets power for the headlights from a 50amp fuse. The fuse powers the headlight switch then the dimmer switch breaks for high and low beams. So if the high beams work, the problem may be with the dimmer switch. The dimmer switch is made into the turn signal switch on the column. You would need to check the low and high beam circuits at the switch for power.

Fig. 4: Detach the wiring from the back of the headlamp bulb
NOTE: This procedure only applies to replaceable halogen headlight bulbs (such as Nos. 9004 and 9005); it does not pertain to sealed beam units.
Open the vehicle's hood and secure it in an upright position.
Fig. 5: Twist and pull the bulb out, but do not touch the bulb if it is still good
Unfasten the locking ring which secures the bulb and socket assembly, then withdraw the assembly rearward.
If necessary, gently pry the socket's retaining clip over the projection on the bulb (use care not to break the clip.) Pull the bulb from the socket.
Before installing a light bulb into the socket, ensure that all electrical contact surfaces are free of corrosion or dirt.
Line up the replacement headlight bulb with the socket. Firmly push the bulb onto the socket until the spring clip latches over the bulb's projection.
WARNING Do not touch the glass bulb with your fingers. Oil from your fingers can severely shorten the life of the bulb. If necessary, wipe off any dirt or oil from the bulb with rubbing alcohol before completing installation.
To ensure that the replacement bulb functions properly, activate the applicable switch to illuminate the bulb which was just replaced. (If this is a combination low and high beam bulb, be sure to check both intensities.) If the replacement light bulb does not illuminate, either it too is faulty or there is a problem in the bulb circuit or switch. Correct if necessary.
Position the headlight bulb and secure it with the locking ring.
#H11-55W and #9005 replacement bulbs (low- and high-beam bulbs for 2007 and later models)
#9006 and #9005 replacement bulbs (low- and high-beam bulbs for 2002-2006 models).
STEPS TO REPLACE HEAD LIGHT:Shut off the Camry's engine and set the parking brake for added safety. Also, make sure its headlights are switched off.Open the hood using the primary and auxiliary hood release latches.Locate the back of the headlight assembly and determine whether the low- or high-beam bulb needs to be replaced.Turn the headlight bulb socket counterclockwise to remove it from the assembly.Unplug the electrical connector from the back of the bulb. Carefully dispose of the bulb to prevent it from shattering or cracking.
Is this the headlight bulb replacement or headlight (assembly) replacement? For bulb replacement:
1. Disconnect negative side of battery.
2. Open hood.
3. Reach behind the neadlight assembly and disconnect the wiring connectors.
4. There is a locking ring around the back of the headlight assembly. Turn this counterclockwise.
5. Gently pull out the bulb.
6. Insert new bulb into the locking ring.
7. Place these back onto back opening and turn clockwise making sure it is flush and totally engaged.
8. Replug wiring connector.
9. Reconnect negative side of battery.
The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly,
behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator
You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam
(separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and
lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal
adjustment screws as well
your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height
from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams
and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same
bulb, only do it for the lows)
For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then
aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall.
If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.
For High Beams: Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.
might have to take out the battery, but if you do, dont without a plug that goes into the liter and has a 9 volt battery to keep computer codes. but i dont think you do but you have to have small hands.
