Hey all! Long time no type.

I am having the same issue in my 2006 4 Runner Ltd. In my case, the driver's front turn signal light. The rear left turn signal light is still functioning, and the right side has no issues at all (clicks regularly). I'm convinced the bulb needs replacing.

The question I have is, what's the best way to get to the receptacle? I know that, once reached, it's just a matter of turning the receptacle counter clockwise to pull it out and then replace the bulb. But how do you best get to it with the easiest effort? Wouldn't ya know.... the left (driver) side is the one where the battery is in the way. Ugghhh... Is it worth removing the battery temporarily to get at the light receptacle, or can the headlight assembly be removed more easily?

See the attached pics.



The main headlight assembly. The bulb to be replaced is the amber bulb on the upper right corner of the assembly (as you're viewing it). More about the brackets that appear above and below the assembly in a minute.



View behind the assembly. As you can see, the battery is in the way. I have seen some YT videos where the person took off the front left wheel well covering to get to it, but I don't know if that's worth the time and effort.



Side view. Please note the black fastener covers. Is there an easy way to pop these off without breaking them? Do they just lift with a flat screw driver or do you need some special tool to take them off? And will taking these off be enough to free the headlight assembly or are there other fasteners that need to be undone?



Upper View - Note the light gray bracket with the tabs. Do those need to come off? I hope not, because I've already broken one of them and don't want to break another.

Any advice, greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Same issue on driver's side 2007 Sport. I've replaced the bulb three time. Swapped fuses. Nothing is working. I've pulled the flasher relay. I'm hesitant to spend $60 on a new flasher but may have to?

The part number is 81980-35020. It's on the back of the interior fuse box.



Anyone else replace their flasher?

You shouldn't need to remove anything. You can reach in and twist the bulb housing out of the slot.

So this was compound errors. First off, thinking it was the turn signal, I changed out the running light bulb (first error). However, O'Reilly had given me the wrong replacement (second error). So now the running light was out too. I suspected it after I saw another thread and looked up the bulbs they gave me to see they were incompatible.

Anyways, Sylvania 194NALL are not compatible. Take your time and don't just let the guy grab the first light that looks like the one you pulled out... Ugh. I almost ordered a $60 part!

I have a 2000 Limited
The fact that it causes other indicators to activate may suggest a ground wire problem.
