Hello All!

So, I need to change out my tail light and I have already ordered the part straight from Toyota Parts OEM. Are there any guides or videos on how to change out the tail light? I went to the dealership just to get an assessment, and they wanted to charge me $800 just for the install and labor. Anything would help me thank you!

Thought it'd be easy, but seems a bunch of things may need to be removed.
A clear bolt on the right. Either 2 screws or just rubber bushings. If screw, then trunk liner may need to be removed. I'm sure there is another bolt on the left, which I think requires bumper removal..

Shouldn't be too difficult even if you have to remove the rear bumper... but don't know how inclined you are or if you have the space/tools to do so...

What's the mileage though. Bulb went out? So soon. Wonder if something else may be wrong?...

If I remember correctly, the taillight doesn't come out unless the rear bumper is off, which is a bit of a pain because it has a bunch of hidden clips you have to press to release it.
