Repalcing the main beam headlight bulb on the 2004 Lexus ES 330

Is there a step by step solution for replacing the main beam halogin light bulb on the ES 330? Ive got the hood up and the wire disconnected but pulling the bulb out is not obvious since there is a rubber shroud over the bulb and no obvious way to remove the shroud.

The bulb is held in place by a wire capture that hooks under a small metal hook on bottom of housing. The rubber shroud or boot needs to be pulled off first to expose the bulb and intermittent socket that actually holds the bulb. To remove the bulb push the wire capture (the end that is looped) toward the front of the car and then to the side to disengage the wire from the small hook, be sure to note the position of the plastic socket that the bulb plugs into as it only fits one way.Notice the tab on the bulb base faces up. The bulb does not fit snugly in the headlight socket, it is held in place entirely by the wire catch.

No high beams, even to flash.


You can try this, it worked on a friend of mines ES 300 with the similar problem, Disconnect the wires from the battery clean the terminals on the battery, Now instead of connecting the cables back to the battery connect the cables to each other- While the cables are connected this way make sure that they DO NOT come in contact with ANYTHING metallic on the car. Leave the cables connected this way for at least 20 minutes, then reconnect the cables back to the battery, make sure you have your radio code before you disconnect the battery,

I have no low beam headlights or daytime running lights only high beam lights and my high beam indicator light in the dash stays on all the time even with my lights off


You may have a broken or corroded wire, pull open the wire loom that protects the main lighting wire harness behind and around the drivers side headlight area under the hood. There are splices that are known to trap water in them and short out or turn green. Let me know if you need more clarification?

The low beam bulb needs to be replaced. Go to an autozone store as they will sell you the bulb, and even assist you in their parking lot with installing it.
