I know the procedure for 2004 highlander. It is as follows...

  1. Open the back door to the highlander, remove the plastic compartment cover.
  2. You will expose the nuts and bolts that hold the asssembly to the car.
  3. Remove the nuts - be careful not to drop any inside the cavity.
  4. Once you have all the nuts removed, you can remove the lamps and pull the tail light assembly off.
  5. Put the new assembly on, replace nuts, and reinstall the lamps.

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.

Highlander Tail Light


Could be the seal around the taillight assembly is leaking water onto the bulbs. I had a similar problem and resealed the plastic lens cover and that was that.... no more burned out bulbs.

It was very easy. Open the back door to the highlander, remove the plastic compartment cover. You will expose the nuts and bolts that hold the asssembly to the car. Remove the nuts - be careful not to drop any inside the cavity. Once you have all the nuts removed, you can remove the lamps and pull the tail light assembly off. Put the new assembly on, replace nuts, and reinstall the lamps. Easy.

2002 Toyota highlander passenger brake light not working


RE: 2002 Toyota Highlander 2.4cyl. 4X4 Base Model

I am a Certified Technician and have basic knowledge with electronics in electrical wiring. I searched the web and discovered this is a common problem.

I fixed the problem and it was a simple procedure... The problem is with the reverse light socket at the side with no brake light. This socket functions as a hub to direct current to the brake bulbs.

Remove reverse light socket and re-seat bulb. Check for loose or broken prongs. Replace if necessary.

Swap the reverse socket with the other side.
