How to Change the Headlights on a Toyota Avalon
The headlights in your Toyota Avalon are designed to last the lifetime of the vehicle but are subject to damage. Moisture can find its way into your headlights and fog them up, making them less aesthetically appealing and possibly impairing their function. In either case, you will need to replace the headlight.
- New headlight
Open the hood and prop it up to gain access to the headlight.
Remove the bolts holding the headlight to the vehicle body, using a ratchet. There will be three bolts around the perimeter of the headlight.
Pull the headlight out with moderate force and detach the headlight bulb wiring.
Set the new headlight in place. Before pushing it all the way into the headlight socket, attach the headlight's wiring connectors.
Push the new headlight completely in its socket and tighten the three bolts to hold it in place.
Test the headlights to see whether they are working properly. If everything is fine, then close the hood. If the headlights aren't functioning, then double-check the connectors and make sure they are tight.
