How to install HID or LED headlight bulbs in the 2014-2016 Tundra:

In order to replace the headlights in the 2015 Toyota Tundra, we have to take the headlights off the truck. There isn’t much room back there to squeeze your hand in and do all the work, so we’re going to remove the grille and the trim pieces below the headlights. From there you can unbolt the actual headlights and replace the light bulbs.

To remove the grille, there are two plastic clips on the top corners and they can be removed with a trim tool. There are also four 10 mm bolts that can be removed with a socket or screw driver. Once the grille is unbolted, it pulls away from the truck.

Now that the grille is off, the trim panels below the headlights will also need to be removed. These pieces also have plastic clips and can be removed with the trim tool. Once the clips are removed, all that’s left holding the trim piece in place are tabs on the side of the vehicle.

Pull the panel out ward away from the vehicle to detach the tabs.

Now remove the three bolts from the headlight housing. Two bolts are located on the top of the headlight and one is on the side.

With a towel placed on the lower bumper to avoid scratches, lift upwards on the two arms at the top of the headlight where the bolts were removed.

Now we have access to everything on the back of the headlight: parking lights, blinkers, and headlight bulbs.

How to install H7 LED Headlight Bulbs with Adapters

On many Volkswagen and Audi cars the headlight bulbs are held in place with external clips that have the power wires built into them. This can make installing an aftermarket HID conversion kit difficult because the larger HID bulb doesn’t fit and the new HID bulbs already have wires coming out of them. This same problem exists when trying to install aftermarket LED bulbs, specifically H7 LED headlight bulbs on Volkswagen and Audi vehicles.

GTR Lighting has specific HID bulb adapters to solve this problem when upgrading to HID bulbs. You can find a list of all these adapters here. So could we use the same H7 adapter and make it work of H7 LED headlight bulbs?

This is how the H7 HID bulbs fit. These adapters are specifically designed for HID bulbs, but can be modified to also work with GTR Lighting GEN 2 LED Headlight Bulbs.

Here is what we found: The H7 HID Bulb Adapter, found here, can in fact be used to create proper H7 bulb fitment in Volkswagen and Audi vehicles that have the metal clips to hold in the bulbs. With some slight modifications, this adapter worked great.

The GTR Lighting GEN 2 LED headlight bulbs come apart easily. The thumb screw on top allows the color shield to come off, then you can twist off the H7 style adapter collar.

The H7 style adapter collar from the GTR Lighting GEN 2 LED headlight bulb fits in the HID bulb adapter.

When you go to re-install this piece it hits the heat sink of the new LED bulb. These two tabs need to be trimmed.

Modified H7 bulb adapter

Using a bench grinder or a knife, cut down the two tabs on the bottom of the adapter so that they are much shorter and meet the angle of the heat sink on the back side of the LED headlight bulb.

Here you can see the H7 style adapter collar re-installed on the bulb, with the HID bulb adapter (modified now) also installed. It gets sandwiched between the H7 adapter collar on the LED bulb and the heat sink.

This method should allow you to install H7 LED headlight bulbs into your car when a bulb adapter is required.
