Hi.

I have taken out the existing dimmer bulb on my 09 avensis. There is a plastic fitting at the end. The shop gave me a bulb with no plastic fitting in the end. The bulb does not come away from the plastic fitting .. so do I need to buy one with the plastic fitting

see pic  

thanks

These two are completely different bulbs. You will need to take your old bulb to the shop and ask them to supply the exact same type, and return the one they had given to you. 
Good luck

Adding to Tony's advice, you should check your owners manual for light bulbs wattage. My car which is a Mk3 2009 (58 plate) Avensis T27, has H11 55w halogen bulbs. Your car looks to have the same bulbs. Most good motor factors will try and supply the correct part, but some can get it wrong. 6 years ago, a shop I went to, assume my car was Mk2 T25, because it was a 58 plate. The guy behind the counter argued with me, the owner who knows what car I drive! He gave me the wrong parts. When I went back with all the info and a mechanic friend who confirmed what my car was, he didn't seem to handle the fact he was wrong. Another staff got the correct parts. I hardly use the shop since.
