Question about 2006 Toyota ECHO
HOW DO I REPLACE THIS BULB ?. DOES THE HOLDER COME AWAY FROM THE LENS BODY?. IT APPEARS TO BE QUITE TIGHT.
1. In the back of the headlight, you should see a rubber insert and a plug going in that's in the shape of a cube.
2. Disconnect the cube shaped plug by pulling it out. There is grease on there so have a towel to wipe your hands just in case you don't want your hands dirty.
3. Remove the rubber insert simply by tugging it out. It's a lot easier than you think so don't tug that hard and hurt your hands. Now, after the rubber insert is removed, this is the trickiest part. I tried to take the bestest picture I can. In the picture below, you see 3 metal stick sticking out and to the right a bit, you see a little tab. What you need to do is push that tab in, towards the headlight direction, and unhook the bulb that's connecting to it. Give it a few try and you'll know what I'FRONT PILOT LAMP 12V 5W TOYOTA YARIS 2001 - headlight3.jpgt.
4. Now, after the hard work of getting the bulbs out, remove them carefully from the car. Replace the bulbs you would like on back inside the bulb. The type of bulbs the Echo uses are H4. I bought some off ebay for around 9.99. Xenon HID, they give off a white light with a dark bluish tint to it. Putting back the bulb is easy, just put the bulb in, hook the switch (tab thingy) back on and reconnect everything. You might want to put some grease on the new bulbs though.

Identify the blown bulb. Note that if a headlight bulb has blown, the dip beam is on the outside and the high beam is on the inside. Turn off the ignition switch and light switches.
Open the hood and replace any blown headlight bulbs. Press the plastic spring clips and remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Pull the bulb out of the bulb holder and replace it with a new bulb. It only fits one way. Be sure not to touch the bulb's glass. Replace any parking lights at the same time, they are in the headlamp unit too.

Exploded view of the rear light assembly used on the Explorer/Mountaineer models
The Explorer/Mountaineer models only use two upper lens retaining screws, the bottom use barbed push pins
Pull the lens assembly out from the vehicle body to access the bulb sockets
Grasp the bulb socket then twist and pull it out of the lens assembly
Remove the bulb from the socket by pulling it straight out
