  1. To confirm. There's two drl. There's the standard sidelight drl. This is a 580 dual filament 5/20w. It runs as drl and dulls when the dipped beam is switched on. This is replaceable. The led "style" along the top of the facelift t27s isn't actually led (from what I can see - looks like one bulb and the plastics of the modual make it look like separate lights. But it isn't.). This too is a drl but cannot be accessed to change the bulb. I pulled the headlights out last week to have a look requiring removable of the front bumper!. It looks like a sealed unit and I confirmed this with Mr T who confirmed the led style strip cannot be altered. But the sidelight drl can be. And that's a 580 dual filament.
  2. You can replace the indicators, the drl (sidelight - 580bulb 5/20w) low and high beam and fogs, and reverse light. However the top drl strip (whether it's led or 505) and rear brake and lights cannot be changed. From what I've found out.
  3. Mines a 2012 face lift t27. It's a TR and has the top strip.
  4. Figured it out. They are 580 dual filaments. The led strip is integrated into the units and cannot be accessed to change the bulbs. If they go it's a warranty issue.
  5. 582 sounds about right. So can the bulb for the led style trim be changed?? It's a TR I think.
  6. I have the actual manual in front of me but it doesnt state the bulb codes for some of the bulbs :(
  7. Hi everyone, Im chris and im new to the whole toyota scene. I've just inherted a 2012 avensis 2.0 D4D as a company car, coming over from Ford. Car thus far has been great, some small issues but all cars have them I guess I need help however with bulb confusion. Im looking to change the day light running lights and some other bulbs, but keep finding conflicting info on the net Bulb sites state the sidelight and day running lights are a 501, but they certainly arent, as I pulled one out. look like a 580. can anyone clarify a list off all the bulbs for front and back, inc licence bulbs and the biggy... the light strip that runs along the tops of the neadlights. I guess they aint LED from looking at them, looks like one small bulb on the upmost outer edge that lights the whole strip... are these replaceable. i pulled the headlights out but couldnt find a way of assessing them. Cheers guys/gals Chris
