If you mean taking the socket out... you need to give it a quarter turn and the socket will unlock... other then that you may have to remove some screws to move the lining away from the area where the bulbs are

Toyota highlander rear side marker bulb replacement

In the rear compartment, there are little access doors that enable you to the four main bulbs for your tail light assembly. The small marker bulb is not among them, you have to remove the entire housing assembly from the car to gain access to the marker bulb. You should see two bolts that are gold in color, remove the nuts from there being careful not to drop them. Once they are removed you need to pull the tail light off the car. Now be warned, if you have an older highlander chances are that rubber gasket seal that keeps water away from the bulbs will be stuck to the car frame. You are going to need to some what forcibly play with assembly to get it off. What I did was tap the gold bolts with a socket screw driver and rubber mallet. Beyond that I just pushed and pulled till I pried it loose. Once free, remove the light that has the cable running out the back, look for the small light socket on the lower side, turn counter clockwise and replace the bulb. Never touch the new bulb with your bare hand, always hold it with a clean towel. Again, just don't be discouraged if the housing assembly doesn't pop off the first try. And ignore anyone that tells you that the bumper needs to come off or the interior needs to be peeled back; they are misinformed, this will work on the 2001-2007 highlander.

How to replace a front side marker bulb on a 2007 Toyota Yaris Sedan

You don't need a dealer for much of anything

All of todays vehicles require removing the lamp
assembly or housings,front or rear, of any vehicle,to
take out the lamps/bulbs

If you open the hood you will find screws that hold it in place

May not be an easy job, but that's the junk were sold

How do I change the front side marker light bulbs?

Bi-Xenons - 6000K D1S
High Beams - Osram Nightbreakers H7
Fogs - PIAA H11 Yellow Ion
Cornering Lights - Osram Nightbreakers H3
Front Park Lights - High-Powered LEDs with built-in resistors
Front Signal Lights - Sylvania Silverstar 7507A ST (Silver Bluish but lights up Amber)
Front Sidemarkers - InviSilver W5W (Silver but lights up Amber)
Rear Signal Lights - P21W Stealth Bulbs (Silver but lights up Amber)
Reverse Lights - Sylvania Silverstar 7506ST or Error-Free LEDs
License Plate Lights - C5W Error-Free High-Powered LEDs
  • Turn the engine off and approach the side of the porsch with the burn-out side-marker light. If you are replacing both, start at either side; the replacement procedure is the same.
  • 2 Remove the screws from the plastic fender liner. Peel back the liner to access the area behind the fender.
  • 3 Reach your hand inside to gain access to the side-marker light's backing. Push the backing forward to release the side-marker lens; it's held in place by small clips.
  • 4 Grab the lens on the outer side and turn it over to access the back. Gently turn the bulb to release it from the plastic lens.
  • 5 Pull the bulb straight out to remove it from the electrical socket. Insert a new bulb, but do not touch the glass part of the bulb with your hand.
  • 6 Push the new bulb into the side-marker lens. Turn it clockwise to install it. Push the side-marker lens back into place. Apply gentle pressure to the lens to pop it back into its mount.
  • 7 Replace the screws along the edge of the fender liner.

    Need to replace right rear brake light bulb. can't get into the area.

    Is it the rear tail light itself, or the side marker? I may have the same issue if its the side marker. However, the tail light itself is simple, remove the panel in the trunk side, and there are three seperate light fixtures, the bottom being the main tail light, the middle is the signal indicator and the top is the upper brake light.

    1999 Toyata camry rear taillight assembly bulb replacement

    Just did this "easy fix" on my 1999 Camry.
    Lift trunk lid and pull away carpet covering the tail light. Retain plastic pins that hold carpet in place. Be prepared to have your knuckles scraped by the carpet as you work.
    On the 1999 Camry, this was NOT a tool-less fix. You could reach in, turn the tail light socket a quarter turn and them remove it without tools. You then simply pulled the bulb straight out (it was bulb size 904 on my 1999) and plug the new bulb straight in.
    NOW... the rub. Although the bulb/socket came out easily, we found it impossible to get the correct angle to replace the bulb and socket without smashing the bulb. Two intelligent adults tried for 30 minutes.
    So... step 3. Easy but requires tools. Get your socket set (I couldn't find the right socket, so I used a pair of needlenose vice grips--worked fine). There are two threaded bolts with nuts in the interior access area for all of the light sockets. Unscrew nuts, retain. Now look on the exterior edge of the tail light. There will be one more solid grey nut. Remove and retain.
    Step 4: You can now loosen the tail light cover and pull it out enough to allow you to safely insert the bulb/socket assembly. Gently turn it until you can insert the socket, and then give it a quarter turn to lock it in place.
    Step 5: Push tail light cover back into place making sure the two interior bolts are in place.
    Step 6. Replace and tighten the three nuts.
    So, not a 30 second fix. More like 10 minutes. Easy, but a pain, and requires a tool, but truly, if this clumsy 6 months pregnant woman can do it outside in the dark... so can you.

    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.
