it sucked so bad today.
i just got Philips VisionPlus in the mail today and was psyched about installing them. i then realized after 1 hour of not getting anywhere, it was time to wrap it up for another day(had class tonight).

Do I have to take out the entire headlight to install a new bulb?

I got to the part where you have to take out the tiny screw holding the clip. it WOULD NOT budge. it was also about 13 degrees F outside and my body started to feel like
.. eheh. my face was all bloody and my hands were frostbitten.

pull up and back and they should pop right out...I had the same problem the first time and it pissed me off but then once you do it once you get the hang of it

exactly, and don't mess with the screw at all! It's just the side of the clip that you have to pull up and back (or it may be forward and up then back - I don't remeber). That screw will go absolutely nowhere :) It took me sooo long the 1st time I did this a while ago - I even bent up the clip trying to get it back into place :( But I've done it so many times now (damn halogens) that it takes about 5 minutes. I think it's a conspiracy to try and get people into Toyota service depts. :thumbdown

I always had problems with the passenger side light.. I suggest using one of the those small mirrors to see where the clip goes, after I used it.. It took a matter of seconds to install lights since i could see in there...
