This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the eleventh generation (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018) Toyota Corolla in changing a burnt out high beam, front turn signal or side marker light bulb in the headlight assemblies.

Owners of other Toyota, Lexus or Scion vehicles such as the Yaris, 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 replacement bulb part numbers are as follows: High Beam # 9005, Front Turn Signal 7444NA and Front Side Marker # W5W or 2825.

No tools are needed to access and replace any of the headlight bulbs.
