Fits Years: 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997
All Toyota Corolla Headlights for sale

Tools required:
  • 10mm socket/ratchet with extension

  • Phillips screwdriver

Step 1: Lift the vehicle's hood.

Step 2: Remove the three Phillips screws that hold the grille in place.

Step 3: Disengage the retaining tabs (one on each side of the grille), and remove the grille from the chassis.

Step 4: Remove the Phillips retaining screw on the top of the headlight assembly.

Step 5: Remove the marker light and disconnect the wiring harness.

This is the light assembly next to the headlight assembly.

Step 6: Using the 10mm socket/ratchet/extension, remove the two retaining bolts that are exposed by removing the marker light assembly.

Step 7: Remove the 10mm bolt that is on top of the headlight assembly.

Step 8: You can now pull the headlight assembly from the vehicle.

NOTE: If you ordered your replacement headlight from Go-Parts, it likely includes new bulbs in the unit (as most of our models do)! If so, you can save time by simply moving on to installation. If not, the bulbs are easily removed by simply turning them counter-clockwise.

Step 9: Disconnect the wiring harnesses from the back of the headlight assembly.

Step 10: Connect the harnesses to the back of the new headlight assembly and move into position.

Step 11: Tighten the new headlight assembly into place by tightening the three 10mm retaining bolts.

Step 12: Reattach the marker light's wiring harness and secure by tightening the Phillips retaining screw.

Step 13: Reattach the grille by reversing the removal process.
