Question about 2002 Toyota Highlander

2 Answers

I need to remove the front bumper cover on a 2002 Toyota Highlander to be able to install new headlight assemblies. I found information that indicates you need to remove both the grill and bumper cover to be able to take out and reinstall the new headlights.

    I understand that I need to release the grille and bumper. I know how to get the grille off, what I need to know is how to get the bumper cover off. Is there one bolt, five bolts, snap rings or what? That is the information I am seeking.

Open hood and look on top of headlamps. You see a piece that looks like it slides in behind the light.

Have removed two mounting srews. Disconnected plastic grill. The bottom of the head light is held in by snap clips. The bumper cover needs pulled out far enough in order for the assembly to clear and come out.

Hi,
For convenience installation of front headlight fixtures is to remove both of your grille and bumper. Release the fastening system of your front grille and bumper then remove your headlights and get them replaced.
Regards

How to Replace Headlight Bulb on 2005 Prius?


Remove fender well trim ( a few screws)
Remove front bumper COVER (not the bumper- the plastic cover)
About 14 screws. Mostly on the underside, get a creeper, and a few
on the top.

Remove the (left or right side) Headlight assembly ( a couple more screws).
One assembly contains the headlight, turn signal and running light. Unplug
the electrical connector from the assembly. All bulbs remove from the back
of the headlight assembly. Headlight is held in place by bail wire, smaller
bulbs are 1/4 turn.

Remove front headlight assembly 2002 toyota highlander


I changed my 2001 Toyota Highlander headlights recently. First, remove the grille. There is one screw in the center which will require a loonng Phillips screwdriver to reach it, down behind the grille, right in the center. Then remove the four plastic clips at the top by prying them up with a small flathead screwdriver. The bottom just pulls forward. Important: Now go to each side of the car, and in front of each fender well, there is one clip that holds the bumper cover on. Pull the top corner of the bumper cover toward you to release the clips, one on each side, at the top corner, along the front of each fender well where the bumper cover meets the fender. The bumper cover can now be loosened along the top without entirely removing it. It just pulls forward. Inspect the underside of the bumper cover for broken clips and replace as necessary. Now remove the two bolts that hold down each headlight at the top. Disconnect the wiring and bulbs and wiggle the old headlights out. Install the new ones and reverse the process. If your AC isn't blowing cold, check the condenser for leaks before you reinstall the grille. A new aftermarket condenser/filter dryer is easy to install by removing the battery and tilting the radiator back to get the condenser out. A replacement only costs $75 and can be swapped out in one half hour with a few metric sockets. Then you will need to recharge the AC system with R-134a, which is easy. Just buy a R-134a kit with hose at Autozone and follow the directions. $50 Replacement fog lights are only $52/pair for aftermarket. You may consider replacing those as well. They have a strange installation with clips and you will need to pry/bop them forward, not remove them from the back. They are aggravating to replace but not technically difficult.

I need to replace the driver's side headlight assembly and need to learn the steps necessary to remove the damaged headlight and insert the new one. From what I can tell, one or more of the front...


Hi,

To remove the headlamp assy. you need to gain access to the bolts that are hidden by the front bumper.. you need to pull back the inner fender well closest to the edge of the front bumper and there is a 10mm bolt going into the bumper you need to remove then you will be able to pull the edge of the bumper away from the fender you will need to remove any clips and or bolts around the grill area to give enough room to pull the bumper cover out of the way enough you need to get your hand and a wrench or socket into the lower part of the fender there is a bolt there that holds the headlamp assy. in remove that bolt as well as the other bolts on the top of the core support and then you will be able to move/wiggle headlamp out enough and disconnect the wiring and remove the assembly be careful not to scratch the fender or bumper cover.. you may want to put some masking tape on the fender and bumper cover so as not to scratch during removal.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I am having a problem trying to replace the low beam headlight bulbs( yes, both sides) for my 2002 Toyota Celica GT. The owners manual doesn't give clear directions for removing the headlight assembly....


Sorry, this is one of those you have to feel for the socket to remove it. did you check the fuse, it is rare that both low beam bulbs would go out at the same time. Don't remove the front bumper what ever you do, it is a nightmare and an accidental deployment of the airbag could occur.

How to remove headlamp assambly in a volvo s60 2002


Hello,

This should be fairly simple,one may have to remove the grille.

  • Remove trimmings on the front bumper cover to allow access to the bolt for removal of the front bumper. The trimming can be removed simply by prying the trimming from the center of the bumper cover using a Philips screw driver.
  • After removing the 2 bolts on the bumper cover, you may open the hood and remove the plastic fasteners on the top of the bumper.
  • To remove the plastic fastener, simply depress the center until click. Do not press too far or the fastener will be damaged.
  • Turn the Torx screw in the wheel well counter clockwise to loosen the catch plate on the bumper. Lift the bumper cover over the catch plate and push the bumper cover forward. This completes the removal of the front bumper cover.
  • To remove the headlight assembly, you will need to loosen the bolt on the retainer near the wheel well. You will then remove the 4 bolts that hold the headlight assembly.
  • There is one bolt on the side of the headlight assembly. Two bolts on top and one at the corner of the lens. They all have the same size bolt.
  • In order to remove the headlight assembly, after removing the bolts, the headlight harness needs to be removed.
  • The next step is to remove the trimming on the lens and removing the clips that hold the lens in place. There are 4 clips. One clips on each side.
  • Once the clips are removed, the lens can be pry open with screw driver. You may want to heat the edge to soften the glue or use an utility knife to scrape the edge. Be extra careful, as the glass can be very sharp if shattered. Please also wear protective gear such as safety goggle and gloves. After this, just reverse the steps to put the headlight back together.
Take care and good luck
