Arrow DRL lights not working - help needed

Hello guys,
I have a 2017 Yaris Hybrid (hatch) with DRL lights that are almost non visible. Only when i get close to them i can see a dim light coming out of them.
This issue is on both sides (driver and passenger).
I`ve asked a mechanic to check the cars` battery, and it checked out fine.
Then i asked to get a quote on fixing the DRL lights, hoping it would be a cheap option of just unscrewing a light bulb and putting a new one in...
The mechanic said that it will require the whole front assembly to be removed and gave me a very large price quote on the parts+job.
Is there any way to replace the DRL (LED) lights on it without throwing away the entire assembly?
My front low beam lights and the motor and the case itself are working fine and i would hate to pay large sums of money just to replace a few LED`s.

P.S. The picture is just an example, not my actual car.

Thank you for your assistance.

DRL problem

Try releasing the parking brake and moving a few feet.
I donít know why but on my Yaris it helped, the DRLs turned on.

Yes you have to loosen the handbrake before they turn on.
But not all trim levels has LED stribes DRL, but only old style glow bulb like this.
On this one its just crome stribes instead of LED stribes.

There are many different flashlights. I often do not understand some essence in them. There are so many flashlights, and each one is different. Different colors, shapes or glass. I often use them myself, since I recently fell down the stairs in the dark and broke my leg. My friends say that my flashlight is not very effective. I'm trying to test the effectiveness of flashlights myself, but there are so many of them ... I used a lot of flashlights, but one struck me. Have you ever seen many functions in one flashlight? This flashlight can do a lot, you just have a look and you will like it.
