How to Remove a Lucida Headlight

Updated February 28, 2017

Having properly working headlights on your Toyota Lucida is an important aspect of driving safely. You can easily learn how to remove the light assembly yourself so you can fix, repair or replace the headlight. This will help to save you money from taking it to a professional to fix it for you. The light removal and repair procedure is quick, straight to the point and should only take a matter of minutes.

Pop the bonnet and secure it open. This will give you access to the headlight area.

Find the three screws or bolts (varies due to year of the car) that are located along the front perimeter of your Lucida. There will be one above each headlight and one in the middle above the front grill. Make sure it is the bolt or screw closest to the light and grill. Remove the fastener above your chosen headlight assembly with a screwdriver or socket wrench.

Place your fingers on the perimeter of the headlight assemble and pull it out. The light assembly should come loose from its position relatively easily. Wiggle it back and forth if it gets a bit stuck.

Reach your fingers behind the assembly and find where the wiring connector is attached. Grasp this connector and pull firmly away from the light assembly. This will fully disconnect the headlight from your Lucida so you can proceed to change the whole assembly or just the bulb inside.

Reconnect the wiring and reposition the assembly when you are done fixing, repairing or replacing the light. Tighten the screws or bolts back into place.

Things You'll Need

  • Phillips head screwdriver or socket wrench, depending on year of Lucida
