Properly work lights are important for safety and legal reasons. For the owners of a 1993 Toyota truck, the headlights are easily accessible and replaceable. The repair can do in less than 30 minutes without tools other than a spare bulb. If this is your vehicle, learn to change the led bulb 9006 to save some money.
Set the parking brake and make sure the Toyota’s ignition is off for safety reasons.
Open the hood and find the electrical connector on the back of the headlight assembly. Press the tab on the electrical connector to separate it from the assembly.
Remove the rubber bulb cover from the back of the bulb socket. Release the retaining spring to loosen the bulb and pull the plug directly.
Insert the replacement 9006 car light bulb into the socket. Return the rubber cover to its original position before reconnecting the electrical connector on the back of the headlight assembly.
Close the hood and test the new headlight to make sure it installed correctly.
Tips and warnings
- Always wear latex gloves when handling headlight bulbs. The skin fat can cause the bulb glass to break.
