    I bet its going to be hard to get a Local Toyota dealer to cover this for you- should have been covered under warranty. :mad:

    Mine looked the same way. I just disassembled the housing and took the yellow lenses out.

    That sucks...Had the same problem with my 2009, luckily I was still within warranty. Took it in and they replaced both headlamps free.

    Lol. First thing I thought was LSD.


    But lens melting seems to happen to some tacomas.

    The left side one on my work truck (09 with 75k) finally cracked. I disabled the DRL so it doesn't get any worse. Luckily I found out about the problem from reading on here, and decided not to add DRL to my 06. Too bad, it's a good feature to have if properly engineered.
