Default SC 430 Bumper Removal

Time to replace those front headlamps. I'm told the only way to get at them is to pay the dealer $300+ or drop the front bumper and replace all of the bulbs at once. Has anyone out there already done this successfully, and if so, how?
Thanks in advance!

It's easy, takes about half an hour first time. Search the Forum you will find a 'how to'.

If you've got really small hands with strong fingers you don't have to remove the bumper etc. I was able to get the bulb out but I couldn't for the life of me get it back in. Sooooo, Talwang has the instructions and it's really not that hard.

On a side note, Toyota said they would do it for about $30... Might try them.

Cheers,
