How To Change Prius Front Parking Light/side Light

4 posts in this topic

Hi guys

Does anyone have any information on changing the prius parking light, i.e setting one on the stalk?

Took me about 40minutes to get the main light changed nearly ripping my hands to shreds, this said once you know how it wont take me 5 minutes next time but still with sore hands afterwards. I hope the parking light is nothing like this.

Also what on earth were toyota thinking when designing the fitting of the bulbs. My Last car was a BMW 3 series and the one before a 5 series and both were sooooo simple to change literally a 1 and a half minute job without reading the manual.

Cheers

On p442 of the manual it just shows the bulb holder as twisting then pulling out, same for the front turn signal.

For the headlight it says to remove the front cover under the hood...6 screws/clips.

Right hand headlight also needs the air cleaner inlet taking out - 1 clip.

Unplug bulb connector and turn counterclockwise to loosen, then wiggle out.

Remove bulb retaining spring and bulb in socket.

Try doing the parking-lights on an MR2 roadster.... even when I knew what I was doing, it was an hour job, and done entirely by touch. No damage to hands, but so tricky to do. Can't imagine anything being harder.

lol, I had the manual in hand, and had watched a vide on priuschat about 5 times, I thought what could be so hard. It was the hardest bulb change ever, even with the manual next to me. It was 100% by touch and is one of those things that once you know how its easy.

We should swap cars for an hour phil and see whos is harder :)

Thank you very much for the info cootuk, at least the parking light isnt as difficult.
