Lex 92, Great! instructions, loved the fact you included pictures. I just changed out my
1994 Lexus LS400 bulbs (H-4) with some super bright Hi-Lite Xenon replacements.
Man I really had to pull on those corner lights to get them to pop loose, was worried I would
bust them, but they finally came free. Thanks again for posting instructions.
Respectfully, Spyderdaddy

Thanks for making the effort to tell us how to replace a headlamp! Couldn't quite figure out how to do it so your post was right on! The only thing you could do better would be to come to my home and do it for me. Well, that might be asking too much. Seriously, thank you very much!

It took me less than 20 minutes total to remove, clean up and put both sides back together.

You'll need:
Phillips screw driver
10mm socket

Remove this (1) phillips head screw to remove corner:

I got the bulb out but I really need the pix in order to do this job. Where did they go? Can I find a diagram anywhere else? Have a 2004 LS430. Need to replace the HID bulbs. Please help!!!

You've already got the HID bulb out? What do you need more help doing?

Are these directions the same for a 1993 Lexus LS400?

Yes, it is all the same except that the 90-92 LS400 uses an HB1/9004 headlight bulb and the 93-94 LS400 uses an H4/HB2/9003 bulb.

Here's a shortcut I use to replace the lightbulb, at least on my 1992 LS400. Basically, instead of removing the entire assembly, you access the bulb while the assembly is still in place.

Step 1: After pulling away the sidelight assembly, look inside. You will see the gray electrical connection and black ring that locks the light bulb.

Step 2: Looking down on the top of headlight assembly frame, you will see a rubber gromet, about 1" in diameter. Remove it. Will a light, you should see the top of the gray electrical connection.

Step 3: Remove the gray electrical connection. You can do this either through the opening where the sidelight was pulled out, or from the 'access' hold described above. I prefer to use a long flat head screw driver from the side.

Step 4: Reach in through the opening and untwist the black ring, and remove the bulb. (Tight fit, but it will come out. The left hand works best for the passenger side, and your right hand works best on the driver's side.)

Step 5: Put black ring around new bulb and insert back into hole. (I use latex gloves to avoid getting body oil on the bulb.)

Step 6: Put gray electrial connection on.

Step 7: Test. (If something has gone wrong, better to know now rather than after everything is reassembled.)

Step 8: Reinstall sidelight assemby.
