This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 Toyota Yaris in changing a burnt out combination low and high beam dual filament headlight bulb, front turn signal or front side marker light bulb.

Owners of other Toyota, Lexus or Scion vehicles such as the Corolla, Matrix, Prius, Camry, RAV4, Sienna, Tacoma, Tundra, FJ Cruiser, Venza, Highlander, Avalon, Sequoia, Land Cruiser, IS 250, ES 350, GS 350, tC, xB, xD, iQ and FR-S may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The compatible replacement light bulb part numbers are as follows: Low & High Beam # 9003, Front Turn Signal # 7444NA and Side Marker # 168.

No tools are required to access and replace any of the light bulbs in either the driver or passenger side headlight housings.


(Please check your old headlight bulb before purchasing a new one. Some Yaris models are equipped with the 9012 low and high beam light bulb instead of the # 9003.)
