Although Toyota Tacoma trucks are very reliable vehicles, they require occasional maintenance. One part you may have to replace in your Tacoma is your headlight. Like any bulb, they wear out over time. There are no specialized tools needed to change your Tacoma flashlight. You can almost do everything by hand. You can buy replacement led car bulbs at any auto parts store and in many department stores.
Open the hood of your Tacoma. With a 1/4-inch ratchet and socket, disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery to avoid bumps or short circuits.
Locate the rear of the headlight assembly. The bulb mounted on a plug that fits into the back of the flashlight assembly.
Turn the cap counterclockwise and pull it back. This step will eliminate the headlight bulb and its socket.
Remove the bulb from its socket. Push the new 9007 light bulb led into the socket. Push the plug into the back of the headlight assembly and fix it by turning clockwise or clockwise.
Reconnect the negative black battery cable to the battery and tighten the terminal to the battery terminal.
