  1. 1

    Identify the cigarette lighter and power source that is located directly above and in front of the gear lever knob. The lighter will be round in shape, and either black or grey in colour.

  2. 2

    Place your thumb and your index finger around the lip of the lighter, and pull the lighter towards you. This will remove the dead lighter from its socket so that a new one can be put in its place.

  3. 3

    Insert the replacement lighter into the power socket by pushing the metallic end of the device into the hole that you removed the dead one from. After pushing it in all the way, you will be able to use it when you are ready to use it again.

Tips and warnings

  • Do not keep pushing the lighter in once it has been inserted. This could result in overheating.
  • Only use a Toyota brand replacement lighter, or an equivalent brand.
