Genchi Genbutsu :

Thanks for using Just Answer for your needs. There isn't a specific procedure in the Lexus Repair manual for this but this video of an Xenon conversion may help you in seeing what steps are involved in accessing the headlight bulbs....

JACUSTOMER-ll13xqs1- :

this does not explaing the replacement of a bulb. It explains the installation of new type HID light. This is of no use

Genchi Genbutsu :

I apologize. Let me get another Expert for you.
