Question about 2008 Toyota Highlander
There's no way you can replace the bubs from the backside.
You still have to remove the entire taillight assembly in order to replace the bulbs.
Do you think I might have to remove the bumper to access the taillght assembly? Open the back door and remove the cover
To protect the cover, Place a rag between the flathead screwdriver and cover as shown in the illustrations
Turn the bulb bases counterclockwise
Rear turn signal light
Stop/tail and rear side marker light. click on this link directly to replace the lamp in tail light for more detailed help http://www.ehow.com/how_4506065_replace-taillights-toyota-highlander.html ----------- for replacing lens In order to remove the rear tail light lens assembly the rear bumper cover needs to be removed or at least removed far enough to gain access to the one bolt and expose a lower lip/bracket of the combination lens. This is no small task. There is one bolt just below the bumper cover that holds the lower section of the rear tail light combination lens assembly to the body. There are two nuts that are removed from the inside.
The bumper cover itself is not overly difficult to replace or remove it is just bulky and there a lot of clips and snaps and small bolts to remove. Where the plastic bumper cover meets the quarter panel there are snap clips once the bolts are removed from the inner fender area you have to work the plastic clips to separate the lip of the bumper cover from the quarter panel clips be careful you don't scratch the paint. I can mention before sometimes you can work the bumper loose enough on one end to allow you to get to the one bolt at the bottom of the light to allow it to clear the bumper cover without fully removing it all the way from the back of the vehicle. Most body shops probably will charge between 2.0 and 2.5 hours to do this repair times their local labor rate.
