I have a '97 RAV4: I bought a repair manual at Shuck's but it wasn't much help. 1) Turn the locking plastic ring on the back of the assembly 1/8 turn clockwise (from the front of the lamp.) 2) Take off (pull out) the rubber grommet. 3) Disconnect the plug on the back of the light. 4) There is a swinging springy wire inside. Push on the edge opposite the hinge (you'll know it when you feel it) and lift up to unlatch. It will swing open and you can pull the light bulb out. 5) The replacement bulb should have tabs on 3 sides. Middle tab up. 6) Insert bulb and close wire gate. Pull up slightly while closing, press down to latch. 7) Reassemble assembley.

The headlamp will remain connected to the van with the lightbulb socket. Twist the collar away from the bulb then pull the bulb assembly out of the headlamp.

Open the hood and find the electrical lead into the headlamp: that plugs directly into the bulb, which is screwed into the headlamp. You just need to remove the plastic shield over the back of the headlamp to gain access, unplug the electrical lead, and unscrew the bulb. Replace the bulb, reattach the lead, and reinstall the shield. A 10-minute job!
