Frequently Asked Questions Ask APW
How is the beam light trajectory adjusted in a Toyota Camry headlight?
Answer: For a 2012 Toyota Camry, there's already an auto leveling headlight function. For Camry models from the previous years, there are vertical and horizontal adjustment screws located underneath the headlight bezels and under the hood. With a Phillips screwdriver or a Torx bit, these can be turned to adjust the beam light trajectory. Follow the suggested distance of the beam light using the headlight's center mark to achieve the correct beam trajectory.
How long does a headlight last in a Toyota Camry?
Answer: It will depend on how frequent the headlight is used. However, the type of headlight should also be considered. A halogen headlight can last for 450 to 1,000 hours, while a high intensity discharge or HID can reach up to 2,000 hours. It is advisable to replace one headlight at a time, so the lifetime of the headlight that's working can be maximized.
How much does a Toyota Camry headlight cost?
Answer: An affordable price for an individually sold Toyota Camry headlight starts at $14, while the expensive types can go as high as $300. A pair of headlights for the driver side and passenger side range from $75-$384. Always check if the headlight comes with a warranty plan to maximize its value, and to avail of a replacement if the part malfunctions.
Which is better when dealing with a foggy Toyota Camry headlight-get a DIY repair kit, or replace it altogether?
Answer: A crack may be the reason why there's fog in the headlight, so it needs to be checked first. If the crack is only a small one, an affordable DIY repair kit will do the job; but if the crack is already long and deep, then it's time to look for a new replacement because the fog will only recur, and water may soon seep in.
