Locate Bulb Socket
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the twelfth generation 2019 (hatchback), 2020, 2021, 2022 (and probably also the 2023, 2024 & 2025) Toyota Corolla sedan in changing a burnt out front turn signal light bulb in the headlight housings. (The OEM low beam and high beam lights are LED bulbs that should last the life time of the vehicle.)

Owners of other Toyota and Lexus vehicles such as the Camry, C-HR, Venza, Avalon, 86, Sienna, Tacoma, RAV4, Highlander, 4Runner, Sequoia, IS 350, RX 350, UX 200, GS 350, IS 300 and ES 350 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The compatible replacement front turn signal light bulb part number is 7444NA.

If you'd like to have brighter front turn signal lights that will also last much longer before burning out like the traditional incandescent bulbs, install some 7444NA LED bulbs.

No tools are needed to access and replace the bulbs in either the driver side or passenger side headlight housings.

The first two steps are to open the hood and move to the side of the vehicle with the burnt out light bulb.

Look behind the headlight housing and locate the round gray light bulb socket.

Bulb Socket Removed
Rotate the bulb socket 1/4 turn in the counterclockwise direction before pulling it straight out of the housing.

Be careful when you remove the old light bulb. If the old bulb was recently turned on, it might still be hot enough to burn your fingers.

Empty Light Housing
Pull the old light bulb straight out of the socket. If you have trouble removing the old bulb due to sand or corrosion (rust), try gently wiggling the bulb back and forth while pulling it straight out.

The OEM (original equipment manufacturer) front turn signal light bulb part number in this 2020 Corolla LE was HT7444NA.

Push a new number 7444NA wedge base light bulb straight into the socket.

Clean off any dirt, grease or oil on the new bulb by wiping it with a paper towel moistened with rubbing alcohol.

If there is any grease or oil on the new bulb, it could create a hot spot that may reduce the lifespan of the bulb.

If you'd like to have brighter front turn signal lights, install some compatible replacement 7444NA LED units.

Test Turn Signal Bulbs
Re-insert the bulb socket into the housing and rotate it 1/4 turn in the clockwise direction.

Double check that the bulb socket is securely in place.

To test the new bulb, turn on the hazard signals or activate the turn signal.

Tip - If you installed an LED bulb and it doesn't work, try removing it from the socket, rotate it 180 degrees and then push it back into the socket. Some LED bulbs are "polarized" and will only work when the "+" positive and "-" negative electrical contacts are in the correct orientation.

Be sure to write down the bulb change in your car's service records.
