Camry Atara S - replacing headlight

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

Just registered and finally found a local australia forum for toyota!

Bought a white 2014 Camry Atara S 2 weeks ago with only 10800km on the clock :toast:

Very happy with the car so far.

Pardon me if my 1st question is a bit noobish:

I bought Philips H7 headlight bulbs and I tried to replace them myself, but I have no luck in turning the old bulbs counter-clockwise out.

Do I just need to turn it harder? I'm scared I would brake it.

Thanks in advanced for the advice.

I shouldn't be that hard, i've changed mine a few times.

Do have the manual? Just follow what's in there.

Yep I read the manual.

I went to toyota service place today and had someone to help me.

It is not easy for them as well, specially the driver side.

Need to push hard a bit before turning it out.

And the parker light, tried to turn the stick, it will turn but it won't pull out.

At the end I didn't bother to replace the park light as I have to drive back to the office quick.

Cheers for the reply!

Well atleast you got it done.

But if they have trouble then i dunno what they're doing wrong.

The parker lights on the stick is another matter all together... much harder than low and high beam bulbs.

The sockets can get corrosion in them...Makes them very hard to get out...

Sigit, I also purchased Phillips White Vision globes and struggled to undo globes in my 2014 Atara SL. We should be able to turn them counter clockwise very easily but no way, I could feel the lenses moving against the strain. Yes, I got my Toyota dealer to replace them all for me. Hi-beam, low-beam & foggies. White lighting now looks so good. Now the park globes look & pale & sick.
