How to remove front headlight assembly


1 Open the RAV4's hood. Locate the back of the headlight assembly, just behind the headlight. You should see a ring-shaped plastic cover.

  • 2 Turn the locking plastic ring clockwise about 1/2 inch and it should pop off.
  • 3 Remove the rubber grommet covering back of the headlight. Simply pull it out of the headlight assembly.
  • 4 Depress the spring latch holding the bulb in place behind the headlight. This is a wire latch that looks somewhat like a bent paper clip. Press it down and move it to the side, away from the light bulb. It should come free and flip open, freeing the bulb.
  • 5 Disconnect the light bulb from the plug. Replace it with the new light bulb, and replace the latch and rubber grommet. Replace the plastic ring cover and turn your headlights on to ensure proper installation.

    Drivers side- stick your hand behind the headlight and remove the rubber cover, and twist out the light.

    Passenger side- remove the air cleaner top, and move the air cleaner out of the way. You now have complete access to this side to remove the rubber boot covering the bulb.

    Rubber bulb headlight cover


    The rubber cover protector for the base of the headlight halogen lamp can be ordered to your nearest Toyota dealer.

    The rubber cover protects the headlight's interior from water, moisture, and dirt. The headlight could function without it, but the your headlight will become darker when the dirt will be burn inside.

    Hope that helps you out!

    How to take out and replace headlight bulbson 2002 passat

    here are instructions from
    1. Open the hood and if equipped with a rubber access cover, remove the cover over the back of the headlight assembly, and then disconnect the electrical connector from the bulb.
    2. If a rubber seal/cover is mounted around the bulb, disconnect the electrical connector from the bulb, and then remove the rubber seal/cover.
    3. Once the electrical connector has been disconnected, squeeze the ends of the retaining bracket inward, then pivot the retainer away from the rear of the headlight assembly.
    4. Grasp the bulb securely and remove, noting the location of the alignment tabs for installation. Allow the bulb to cool before removing it from the headlight assembly.
    NOTE Do NOT touch the glass portion of the new bulb. This will shorten the life of the bulb.


    Fig. On some models, a rubber cover is removed to access the bulb-1.8L Passat model shown


    Fig. Once the cover is removed the wiring can be accessed and disconnected-1.8L Passat model shown


    Fig. The bulb is retained by metal bracket. The ends are squeezed toward one another to release them from their retainers-1.8L Passat shown

    To install:

    NOTE Do NOT touch the glass portion of the new bulb. This will shorten the life of the bulb.

    1. Install the new bulb into the headlight housing and squeeze the ends of the retaining bracket inward while pivoting the retainer toward the rear of the headlight assembly. Release the retaining bracket making sure it is fully seated in its retainer.
    2. The balance of assembly is in reverse order of removal.

    Need to change the left side low beam headlight.

    It might be hard to get to like that. You will see a silver metal bar with a 90 degree angle at the top that goes straight down behing the headlight assembly, which you can pull up on. It holds the headlight in. Once you pull this up pust the headlight slightly sideways as there is a plug holding the headlight in at the back, then just pull forward to give youself space to work. Clip off the two clips and slide the back cover off then you can change the bulb out.

    Remove the grill first.. it is on snap locks and will pop out .There are 2 slide up brackets on the left and right top of the plastic headlight cover. slide the 2 brackets up the headlight unit will be unattached except for the light wires holding it in place, just unclip them. pop off the rubber cover for the light you wish to change. Twist bulb 1/2 turn to remove. Use gloves so your hands don't touch to bulb.
