Replacing Headlights


Recommended Posts

MK2 Yaris 08

I managed to replace the driver side headlight the other day no problems, the passenger side however is close to impossible without taking the bumper off ( according to YouTube )

Do you guys have any tips, is it just best to take it to Toyota when it goes ? I know it's best to replace them in  pairs as they tend to go about the same time.  I'd assume by the winter it will probably be worn out so just asking in advance

 

Thanks !

What's "gone" though? By "headlight" are you referring to the complete assembly or one of the lamps, bulbs grow in The Netherlands.:ph34r:

I've recently changed both my H4 lamps and the driver's side was the least accessible. Only one had failed but both the same age. However, a 2014 Mk 3.

The driver's side sidelight is a different kettle of fish sadly, when that needs replacing. Virtually impossible access. For fear of repeating myself, another example of design excellence. Much better than some marques though!

Hi Terry, plenty of how to videos on utube on how to replace, not a seriously difficult job for anyone with a few tools and a wee bit of knowledge.

Did it within 25 minutes. 

Required a flat head, and a few sockets. A lot easier than I expected 🙂
