How to change a lamp in Toyota Corolla 2012?


The headlight globe usually just twists out of the back of the headlight assembly. When fitting the new globe,use a cloth or glove. Don't touch any part of the globe with bare hands as the oily film will cause the new globe to fail very quickly.

Changing headlight bulbs on mitsubishi 380


You either have hands the size of an 8 year old child or you have never done this yourself. There is no way to access the connector and manipulate the connector release tabs to remove the globe on the drivers side with the assembly in place, with all the plumbing and water bottle in place. You have to remove the whole front bumper and associated guards etc etc just to replace a globe. Very poor design.

WHERE IS THE HEADLIGHT REPLACEMENT BULB LOCATED?


open the bonnet, locate a screw on top of the headlight and undo it, locate two screws between the centre grill and headlight and undo them and locate a screw right behind the headlight assembly and loosen it. Now the whole headlight should come out. It wont come all the way out. By unplugging the electrical plug you can take it out completely. Lift up the lock thats hold the rear headlight cover and that will expose the internals of the headlight and then you can change whatever globe you want. First disconnect the wiring plug from the globe and then release the clip holding the globe and replace the globe and make you sure you dont touch the glass part of the new globe which installing. Touching it will shorten the globes life and there is a chance that it might explode inside and create mess.
