Yaris Hybrid headlight/dip bulbs.


Recommended Posts

Hi, folks this subject may have been covered before. Has anyone tried to upgrade the lighting on a 2019 Yaris Hybrid, all info greatly appreciated. I live in a rural area and although I don’t drive much at night I find the lights could be better.

The handbook specifies two types of headlights with different bulbs. Reflector headlight H4. Projector headlight HIR2. I’m not sure which type of headlight I have. You may be able to tell from a picture I posted earlier today, my first effort at posting pictures on this forum. Thanks Mike 👍

As far as I'm aware, all the Yaris Hybrids have the same HIR2 single filament bulbs.  I'm willing to be proved wrong though.

The only way to be sure, is to take one out and look at it.

My HIR2 bulbs come out ok, but the plug attachments have a strong clip.  I used a small screwdriver to un-latch it.  The bulb then rotates to remove.

If they are HIR2, the best thing is to get a pair from eBay.  They are less than half the price of the Toyota upgrades.

Hybrids use the HIR2's, I have Philips white vision bulbs that are road legal in mine

Two questions: 1; are they an improvement?? 2;where can they be bought. Question 1 may be irrelevant as you wouldn’t have installed them if they were not an improvement Mike.👍🚗

Not cheap though, at £60 a pair.  Hope they're worth it.

The Toyota Optiwhites I bought in Nov 2017 cost me £48.77 ............... probably £50odd now?  They only lasted 16,000miles with the vast majority of those miles in broad daylight.  Not worth the money at all, no matter how good they were.

I refitted the originals, and found they were as terrible as I remembered, so went on eBay and bought a pair of even better ones than the Optiwhite for £20odd for the pair.  I'm so pleased with them, I bought a second pair .............  two pairs is cheaper than one pair of Optiwhites.

Mick.
