Hey Sid==I think on yours, only the bulb needs changing. Just remove the light assy and change the bulbs in the rear. There are mounting screws to remove and don't unscrew the adjusting screws. Goodluck, Joe

This is a sealed beam unit. The bulb alone cannot be replaced. The entire headlight assembly needed to be replaced. First remove the screws holding the turn signal assembly, and then replace remaining screws holding the headlight. It is a bit tricky, but doable.

Just replaced both bulbs on my 98 Toyota Sienna XL. First carefully remove plug into the back of the bulb to be replaced. Do not pull the plug out by tugging on the wires, make sure you grab the plug itself. Next, remove the rubber boot protecting the back of the headlamp. You will find a metal clip clamping in the bulb. The clip is designed to be easily released. Remove the bulb and put in the replacement, without touching the glass.

I purchased my Sienna in January of 1998. Could there have been a mid-year model change that makes your van different than mine?

Open the hood, remove the rubber boot, unplug the wire connector, unclasp, remove the burned bulb and replace with the new one.

I assume that it will be like a 1998 Sienna van. There is a sealed bearing in the hub assembly and you change the whole assembly. There are four bolts that hold the hub assembly to the suspension.
