How to install HID or LED headlight bulbs in the 2014-2016 Tundra

In order to replace the headlights in the 2015 Toyota Tundra, we have to take the headlights off the truck. There isn’t much room back there to squeeze your hand in and do all the work, so we’re going to remove the grille and the trim pieces below the headlights. From there you can unbolt the actual headlights and replace the light bulbs.

To remove the grille, there are two plastic clips on the top corners and they can be removed with a trim tool. There are also four 10 mm bolts that can be removed with a socket or screw driver. Once the grille is unbolted, it pulls away from the truck.

Now that the grille is off, the trim panels below the headlights will also need to be removed. These pieces also have plastic clips and can be removed with the trim tool. Once the clips are removed, all that’s left holding the trim piece in place are tabs on the side of the vehicle.

Pull the panel out ward away from the vehicle to detach the tabs.


Now remove the three bolts from the headlight housing. Two bolts are located on the top of the headlight and one is on the side.

With a towel placed on the lower bumper to avoid scratches, lift upwards on the two arms at the top of the headlight where the bolts were removed.

Now we have access to everything on the back of the headlight: parking lights, blinkers, and headlight bulbs.
