Question about 1998 Lexus LS 400

1 Answer

Front side marker light bulb burned out. Can't figure out how to get to the bulb to replace it. I also have the ''top right'' brakelight bulb burned out & can't figure how to get to that bulb either. It's NOT the one in the trunklid.

    The front passenger side marker light is on the fender, not the front bumper. The brakelight is the passenger side, uppermost right corner bulb. I can't figure how to remove the light assembly to replace the bulb.

You actually have to remove the light from the vehicle to change the bulb. if its the one in the bumper you will have to loosen that side of the bumper to get to the bulb.

    ok the front light has one screw in the top of it under the hood, it also has a piece that snaps into the headlamp. once the screw is out you will need to release the snap tab to get the light out.

    the rear tailamp will also need to be removed from the vehicle to get to the bulb. you will need to remove the trunk trim on that side to reveal the nuts holding the lamp in. be sure to replace these bulbs with the correct bulbs or the warning lamp will not go out.

    I am trying to do the same thing to the driver's side front marker light with my 2004 ES 330. I removed the 3 screws in the headlight assembly, but there is something else preventing me from pulling the unit out. How do I release that last "clip?" I haven't pulled too hard in fear of breaking something. Also, if you have any input into changing the license plate light, I need to do that as well (but have not really looked into how to change it). Thanks!

Brake lights rear blinkers quit working when turn signal is on flashes really fast


You simply have a burned out bulb or bulbs. With the key turned on turn on the directional for the left side and then the right side. Typically one bulb is blown and the opposite side works normally. Observe the normal side and note which is the flashing bulb. It is the flashing bulb on the other (malfunctioning) side that needs to be replaced. To replace the bulb you must remove the entire brakelight assembly, which isn't difficult. Open the trunk and locate the electrical harness that lines up with the brakelight assembly. Near the harness, locate the two (possibly three) nuts or wingnuts that attach the brakelight assembly to the car. Once the nuts are removed, the assembly can be pulled off the rear of the car. After replacing the bulb, be sure to test the operation of the new bulb before reassembling everthing.

How to replace passenger turn signal bulb


The side marker light must be removed in order to get at the turn signal light.
There are two screws holding the side marker light which is situated above the turn signal.
Open the hood.
Remove the phillips head screw at the top of the side marker light.
Using a long #2 Phillips screwdriver, remove the screw on the outside of the side marker light. This can be seen by looking between the lower side of the side marker light and the top side of the turn signal.
The side marker can be moved.
The turn signal has one screw on the top of the fixture that must be removed.
Slide out the turn signal fixture. There is a small feature on the lower front corner of the turn signal fixture that you must note to properly reinstall the turn signal.
In order to get to the bulb, rotate the bulb socket 1/4 turn CW or CCW. The bulb socket is loose.
The bulb is simply pressed into the socket.
Not sure of the type, but it can be found at your locale auto parts store.
The bulb is used in several places on the 1994 GC, so get apacket with two, if possible.
Assembly in reverse. Be careful not to overtighten the screws as they are replaced

  • 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.

    Had a problem with a right, amber side marker on right side


    Usually one of the holes in the marker light where screw goes in, has metal contact where screw meets light, but if not, and they are not push in wire connection type from behind, then just run your white wire up through hole in housing, and bare the end & tighten it up under screw holding light to body. White should be ground, brown should be power.
