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

Back-up light
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.

Where is the fuse for the rear tail light on a 2008 highlander


If you have only one bulb not working, or if you have only one side of the rear lights not working, it would not be a fuse.
Fuses generally control , for example, all the rear tail lights, or all the front parking lights, etc.
Those fuses are found in the fuse holder underneath the dashboard of the vehicle.
If you have only one bulb out, either the bulb is burned out, or a socket for the bulb is defective, or the ground wire is not working.
If you have one side out, you likely have a wiring problem.
God bless your efforts.

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.

How do i replace the drivers side tail light on a 2006 highlander?


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.
