Headlight Bulb help needed to change it
« on: October 14, 2009, 02:49:15 PM »
OK I know I know it's stupid but I have an M reg (93) Toyota Corolla and the Off Side (Drivers side) headlight bulb has gone, I have the replacement bulb....thinking it would be a simple, unplug pull out, put in, reconnect job...I have been proved wrong.....I managed to undo the plastic retaining ring which holds the rubber grommet in place, and unplug the connector but cannot for the life of me see how to get the bulb out and put the new one in, any ideas anyone as I HATE driving with only one headlight working...

Judging by my previous cars you need to find someone with very small hands, who feels that their hands have too much skin and on them and they would be happy to leave some in your engine bay!

Usually a Metal spring clip holding the bulb in place with 2 rounded ends that you need to nip together, then the clip will hinge down or pop off somewhere unreachable. The clip is usually harder to put back in than take out especially if you have big fingers.

Edit: Remember not to touch the glass of the new bulb.
