Question about 1995 Toyota Camry

2 Answers

I can not figure out how to get into the rear light bulbs (Stop light, etc). The manual says to remove two (phillips) screws to disengage the housing from the body. There's even a a picture. However, on my 1995 LE, there are no screws.

To access the rear lights, you access them from inside the trunk. Pull down the carpet at rear of trunk near latch. There should be the screws the manual is referring to. Once you locate and remove all screws, gently pull the light assembly away from body. Replace the needed bulbs then gently push assembly against the body, replace the screws and set carpet back in place.

  • Drive your Toyota Camry to a flat, level and well-lit space such as a home garage, driveway or parking lot. Turn off the engine, and open the trunk.
  • Look inside the trunk behind the burned-out rear light, and locate the access panel. Pry this panel off with a flat-head screwdriver.
  • Remove the light holder containing the burned-out bulb. Behind the access panel you will have access to the taillight, turn signal and brake light. Determine which needs replacing, and turn the holder toward the rear of the car, and pull it free.
  • Remove the burned-out bulb from the holder. Depress a small lock tab to release the bulb.
  • Insert the replacement bulb, making sure it snaps firmly into place. You'll hear the locking tab click. Reverse the above steps to reassembly the light.

    Replacing a turn signal bulb....Baffled...Thanks


    Hello,

    Please do not be baffled. To replace the turn signal bulb on Your car is quite simple, all You need to do is to get a screwdriver and follow the steps below:
    1. Open the hood and locate the mounting screws for the outboard marker-light assembly just above the light. Remove the screws with a Phillips screwdriver, then remove the assembly, setting it aside for now.
    2. Locate the two mounting screws on top of the turn-signal light assembly under the side-marker lens. Remove the two screws with a Phillips screwdriver, then set the screws aside. Slide the turn signal out and locate the socket on the back of the assembly.
    3. Rotate the bulb socket counterclockwise and pull the socket out of the assembly. Pull the bulb straight out of the socket and discard it. Install a new bulb into the socket, pushing it in until is seats. Position the socket back into the rear of the light assembly, turn it clockwise to lock it in place, then slide the assembly back into the front of the Jeep.
    4. Install the mounting bolts that secure the turn-signal light assembly, tightening the screws with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Position the side marker-light assembly to the side of the Jeep and install the retaining bolts.
    5. Tighten the retaining bolts for the side-marker lights with a Phillips screwdriver, then close the hood. Test the repair by turning the lights on and visually verify that the light is working..

    How do i replace brake light


    Rear: Brake, Back-up, Tail, Turn signal (3 bulbs, all # 3157):
    To access the rear bulbs, open the liftgate and remove the two phillips head screws from the side of the housing as shown in the center photo above. Slowly and firmly rotate the assembly away from the vehicle until it disengages from the ball pin socket that secures it in back.

    Each of the three light sockets, all containing the same exact bulb type, can be removed by turning them counter-clockwise 1/4 turn.

    (Note: Replacement sockets are available separately, Jeep P/N 4676589)

    Left and right rear brake lights not working. Center rear light does work? Is it the same fuse? And service manual unclear, which fuse is it? thanks Tibs


    Fuse number 7 (15A, Horn Stop) in the under hood box should be your brake lights. If you are referring to your high mount brake light as the third light, I believe they work on the same fuse.
    I would check the bulbs, although it may not be likely that both would go at the same time. There are three bulbs in the unit: brake/taillight, turn signal, and backup.
    The units themselves come out pretty easy. Just remove the two phillip's head screws and pull the unit back to get it out. Then turn sockets 1/4 turn and out to check the bulbs. Bulbs pull straight out.
    Hope this helps you.

    Changing a brake light


    Rear: Brake, Back-up, Tail, Turn signal (3 bulbs, all # 3157) To access the rear bulbs, open the liftgate and remove the two phillips head screws from the side of the housing. There is no 3rd screw. There is a metal rod with a ball tip which is stuck in a rubber socket on the vehicle. Slowly and firmly rotate the assembly away from the vehicle until it disengages from the ball pin socket that secures it in back. Rotating it away from the vehicle give you leverage to smoothly disengage the ball from the socket. Each of the three light sockets, all containing the same exact bulb type, can be removed by turning them counter-clockwise 1/4 turn.

    Stop light out


    For the brake light open the rear hatch and check beside the tail light. I believe ther is 2 phillips head screws right where the light meets the rear hatch on the body panel. remove them and gently yet firmly pull the lens assembly from the corner of the rear body panel. Squeeze the clips on the back of the socket and twist to remove the socket from the lens. Push gently on the bulb and turn carefully to remove light from the socket replace the light and reverse removal procedure to install.

    Process to get to tail light bulb for replacement on 99 rav4. Do you have to remove the paneling in the rear compartment?


    Well, this is rather embarassing but I simple decided to look through the owners manual thinking that they usually don't contain that sort of thing and there I found. Pictures and a description of the process. Very simple...remove a phillips screw to remove a small plate covering the 2 screws that hold the tail light assembly in place. Remove the 2 screws and pull our the assembly and replace the bulb. Duh....I thought with Toyota engineering, they wouldn't make replacing a bulb a major project. Thanks for checking back....Allen
