This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the fourth generation (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and the face lifted 2018 model year) Toyota Avalon sedan in changing a burnt out front turn signal light bulb in the bumper cover.

Owners of other Toyota, Lexus and Scion vehicles such as the Yaris, Corolla, Matrix, Prius, Camry, RAV4, Sienna, Tacoma, Tundra, FJ Cruiser, Venza, Highlander, 4Runner, Sequoia, Land Cruiser, IS 250, IS 200t, IS 300, NX 200t, NX 300h, RX 350, RX 450h, LS 460, LS 600h, ES 350, ES 300h Hybrid, RC F, GS 350, CT 200h, LX 570, GX 460, tC, iA, iM, xB, xD, iQ and FR-S may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The compatible replacement light bulb part number is 7444NA.

(If your Avalon is equipped with halogen fog light bulbs, the replacement part number is H11.)

The tools needed to access and replace the front turn signal bulb socket include a Phillips head screwdriver, a flathead screwdriver, a 10mm socket and a 1/4" drive ratcheting wrench.

The first step is to turn the steering wheel all the way in the opposite direction of the burnt out front turn signal light bulb.

Moving the front wheels will create more working room in the wheel well to access the bulb sockets in the front bumper cover.

There are three fasteners that secure the front edge of the black plastic wheel well liner or "splash guard" in place.

Loosen the black plastic screw near the top of the wheel well liner by turning it counterclockwise with a Phillips head screwdriver.

Set the plastic Phillips head screw and the base of the fastener aside in a safe place.

Move down towards the middle of the wheel well liner. Rotate the second fastener 1/4 turn counterclockwise with a flathead screwdriver before pulling it straight out.
