    Hello, I am hoping to repair my lights for my Prius C 2013 (I believe trim is One).

    The right side headlight and high beam lights are not functioning normally (they will sometimes turn on briefly if I don't use the lights for a few days). The turn signal is working though. The mechanics that worked on it said that the bulb was loose and that was causing the issue?

    The left side tail light is sometimes not working. The mechanic said it is because the cover is cracked and water is leaking in when it rains. I also noticed that it looks like a wire was pinched at some point?

    Anyone know what I might need to buy to fix it and where in the Bay Area, California, USA I might go for repairs?

    A loose bulb in the headlight can be problematic. We don't know if it's loose because the assembly is damaged, or if the bulb itself is damaged, or if it is only the wiring connections that are loose. So I can't tell you what to buy- needs further examination.

    There have been problems with water intrusion in Prius c rear taillight assemblies, and Toyota is/was handing out free replacements for a while. You may be eligible for free repair, but the window may have already closed. You would have to contact a Toyota dealer with your 17-digit vehicle ID number handy.

    Good luck!
