1st Post = Rear Hatch
2nd post = Rear seat lights
3rd post = Vanity lights (above sunvisors)
4th Post = Bottom of Front door lights

Additional Posts:
Non-Pano Roof lights

Tools:
1 - Plastic Pry tool

Bulbs:
4 - 194 LED Bulbs
1 - DE3175 LED bulbs (rear hatch)

These are the bulbs I used. Any quality 194 or DE3175 bulb will work.

** The MAP lights are not replaceable and are already led. **



Rear Hatch Bulb

1. Get your bulb and pry tool.

305687


2. Turn off the lights from the front overhead console in the car. Leaving them on like this will make them hot.

305688


3. Use the pry tool, in the little indents and pry the plastic away from the dark grey area.

305689


4. Remove the OEM bulb by bending the right metal tab away from the bulb.

305691



6. Install new bulb by inserting point of bulb on the left side into that hole then raise the right side up while bending the tab out some. And it'll lock in place. Rotate the bulb so its facing straight out.
305692


7. Reinstall plastic cover back on, bottom first then snap top in.

305693


Done with rear hatch. Next Reply will be the Other bulbs.

2. Twist it to pop it out. Remove the bulb by pulling straight out.

305695


3. Install new LED bulb and test. Flip it if it doesn't turn on.

Thanks. I've been doing these types for years on all my cars, especially ones that haven't had any made due to how new they are. It helps people a lot.

Do you have a rough cost to retrofit the entire car, out of curiosity? Also, wondering if all these changes would have a material effect on a Hybrid model efficiency?

Can’t really answer that since I transferred the bulbs to my new highlander from my 4Runner. But you can add it all up. Most of those bulbs are off while you drive so it won’t help much for efficiency.

Those can’t be replaced. They are already led.

There are led chips built into the circuit board inside the housing and each light have two pegs that work like a tunnel pointing at the led chips. I should have taken some pictures when I took that thing apart.

Front bottom door lights

Tools:
1 - small flat head screwdriver or small plastic pry tool
1 - Small Towel

Bulb: 2 - 194 size LED bulb (I used Lasfit 194 bulbs which were a bit brighter than the others I had, but they are more expensive too) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0821GVXB3/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

306703

1. Open door.
2. Use pry tool and push it into the right side of the light between the clear plastic and the door. Pry it out on that side enough where you can grab it with your hand and pull the right side out first then slide the left out of the door.

306697


306698


3. Disconnect the cable by pushing in the tab on the connector and pulling.

4. Remove grey plastic housing from clear reflector by inserting a flat head screwdriver into the slot and lifting it up while pressing from the bottom of the grey plastic towards the screw driver so it releases and slides out.

306699


5. Once out, remove the dome shaped cover off the light by sliding it off.

6. Insert new 194 LED bulb

306700


7. Reassemble dome, and clear cover back on.

8. Reconnect light to verify bulb works, if not, flip bulb around and try again.

9. Done.

Has anybody with the non-panoramic roof changed the dome bulbs? Do I remove the cover only, or the trim around it as well?

The cover acts as a button to turn the light on/off.

You can see the 4 notches on those on the tops and bottoms. That is where you need to pop them loose from usually. If it's like my 4Runner, whatever the not moving side is, is the side that I had a easier time prying out from.
