Hello; To change bulbs remove the cover in the trunk (pull it away) Remove the nut's/wing nuts and the assembly will come out. If you ever have to change any of bulbs that are on the deck lid you will need to remove the covering on the inside of the deck lid, remove the assembly and change the bulb.
to change passenger side headlight bulb,on 04 plate yaris, remove bulb cover at rear of lamp,take off fuse box,although this only gives you slightly more room,and have someone with small hands,replace bulb,as it is nearly impossible if you have large hands.It is awkward but can be done,EVENTUALLY.
My first thought: burned out bulb. With the car in "run" position(doesnt need to be running) and parked, switch on the blinker and get out and look to see which light is on, and which is not. If somehow both blinker lights come on, then your issue is with a burned out blinker relay which is typically found up, under, the dash. These things are about 1-1/4 inches in diameter and about a 1-1/4 inches tall and will usually be found in or near the fuse panels.
If it's a bulb thats fried.... front end - check under the hood to see if blinker bulbs are accessible from there. If not from inside, you'll hafta remove the light covers/housings from the outside, usually requiring a philips or torx screwdriver of some sort. back end - these are likely accessible from the trunk, and hidden behind the carpeting, or something, that covers the rear light areas. If not directly accessible, then you'll hafta determine how to remove the bulb covers/housing to get at the dead bulb.
Lift the hood to find the rear of each head lamp assembly. there is
cup-shaped cover over the rear that needs to be rotated 1/4 turn one
way or the other and removed to access the bulb inside. With fingers or
needle-nose pliers, depress and unhook the centering wire-keepers off
of the bulb and pull-out the bulb by the connector. you can now replace the bulb
Drivers side: Remove plastic cover on rear of headlamp by pushing down on long wire clip.Pull cover outwards and downwards to release the two clips on top of cover.
Remove wiring connection from rear of bulb.
You will now find that a mirror and torch will come in handy.Using the mirror you will see that the bulb is held in place with a spring clip that locates under a metal lug on the headlamp.Push the clip so that it releases from the lug and swing the clip away from the bulb.Remove old bulb.
Insert new bulb making sure the locating tab is in the correct position.[Use the mirror to check].
Replace spring clip.
Replace rear cover and long wire clip.
Passenger side:Little more difficult.Remove battery cover and follow the same instructions as for the drivers side.Not so much room to work this side though.
Do not touch the glass parts of the bulbs whilst changing them and if you do clean the glass with metholated spirits before fitting.
1.) unplug the connector in the trunk (its a small white plug running up to the third light, there should be a small clip you squeeze).
2.) remove the 2
gold-colored screws from inside the trunk. They can be seen from the
trunk. 1 is thru the larger square opening where the wire connects to
the 3rd brake light. The 2nd is on the right side thru a small
(screwdriver width) hole covered by a piece of foam tape stuff I had to punch me screwdriver through the foam to get to it.
3.) after removing the 2 screws, go inside the cabin and the brake light housing pops up.
4.) disconnect the bulb from the housing while inside the cabin (I had to do this with me two forefingers since the housing only pops up and inch or two).
5.) in the trunk remove the wire and bulb. (it's about 5 inches long. the wire from the connector to the bulb socket)
6.) reverse steps to install.
It is a pain and reqiuires a bit of time only because there isn't a lot of room to move around, but it beats taking it to the dealershio!
