#1 of 10 Headlight removal
Feb 13, 2010 (4:50 pm)
Can someone help with how to remove a headlight from RX330. My headlight has water forming inside. I have found two bolts on top and one bolt under outside. Looks like there is a black plastic clip (maybe 2-3 inches wide) on the under side connected to the bumper. Do you have to remove the bumper? After removing the three bolts, there is still something holding the headlight. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

On my '01 you have to go through the front wheel well, unbolt the front of the liner, to remove the bolt/nut in the rear of the headlamp.

Thanks for the guidance. I did remove the wheel well liner, and found one bolt on the bottom side of the light. However, there is still something on the bottom holding the light. Do you know if there are two bolts on the bottom? Do you need to remove the bumper? There appears to be a large clip from the light assemble connecting to the bumper. But I can't tell if this is keeping the light from coming out. Not much space to work in! Again, thanks for the response.

I seem to remember there was more than one and one of those was quite high up and hard to get to.

On a 2004, do you need to remove the bumper in order to remove the headlight?

Does anyone know if you must remove the front bumper, in order to remove the headlight assembly?

You have to remove the front bumper side support on the RX330. There are 3 bolts and 1 clip type support on the bumper that hold on the headlight. By the way, there is a TSB on this. If you car is under 50K miles, you most likely can get Lexus to replace the lights. This is typically a $3,000 job as they replace the headlights, ballest, and the ECU!

So on an RX330, 05 i have to remove the bumper just to take my headlights off. Once i do can i take them apart and clean the lense that is completely fogged up on the inside ? Also why would lexus replace the headlights, ballest, and ECU for a lense fogging problem ? Is there a breakdown showing how to remove them ? What is a TSB ?
