2005 Toyota Camry Question: Replacing front marker lights.

 

Question

Visitor, 2.4L 4 Cylinder, Brooklyn, NY, July 28, 2010, 23:18

I am trying to replace a front headlamp marker light that's gone out, but I find that it's impossible to reach by hand or pliers (it's hard to handle a glass bulb with pliers anyway.) The bulb fits on an angle, but it's impossible to see if it fit properly and is secure. Anyone know a solution?

    I just looked at a family member's 05 Camry. What's the problem? All the bulbs are easily accessible. The only hard thing would be if you had to replace the whole assembly. And that is cover in the service manual which you can get free at:

    While it's not difficult to pull out the old bulb, getting a hand in to fit the new bulb at the proper angle is nearly impossible. The plugs for all other bulbs are very easily accessible.

    If its the one on the side with the battery you may need to loosen the battery hold down, and move the battery just enough for easier access. But do not disconnect the battery if you can avoid it.
