LH Parking/Clearance lamp

Post by escher » Mon Jan 07, 2019 5:47 pm

Hi all!

New to the forum, but not to the Tercel love. Recently got my second (first had an unfortunate wheel bearing incident, but holds a dear place in my heart) and want to start cleaning it up a bit.

It's really in pretty good cosmetic shape aside from the driver side parking lamp being busted. While the bulb is still intact and works, I have been looking for a new assembly and been having a hard time.

Does anyone happen to have one sitting around they would be willing to sell or have an alternative?

Thanks!
My Tercels will all be named Studs after my G'ma thought I was talking about Studs Terkel when I told her my car was a Toyota Tercel.

if your T4wd uses the composite headlamp, it has a marker light common to only the '87-88 model years. Hard to find since Toyota was already phasing out that model of Tercel.

you might go buy a lens repair kit from the Auto parts store and see if you can rebuild it so it is acceptable until you can locate a replacement. The kit has flexible plastic panels of amber and red to use to patch broken marker/indicator lights. Used one on a Pathfinder I used to own and you could hardly notice the repair.

Good luck.

Thanks for the tip, that should be a good placeholder.
