    This year I wanted to replace my 2008 Toyota 4 runner with a new one. But I was prevented from doing so because of how complex Toyota made oil and filter changes on it's 2020 4 runners. I believe that Toyota engineers need to redesign the 4 runner, so that an oil and filter change is no more complex and difficult than on my 08 4 runner. Then I like other people that have to do their own oil changes for various reasons, can comfortably go out and buy a new one, and not be held back by this horrendous obstacle. Robert M. Partridge.

    Hi from Finland! Me and my wife Katri lived in California (Concord city) 1994 - 1996. Then we bought new Camry (model 1995) from Concord. We drove it from California to New York via route 66 at summer 1996. (Concord, San Francisco, Death Walley, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, Dallas, Atlanta, Charlotte, Washington, New York, Boston and then back to New York. Then we sent the car from New York to Finland by ship and flew to Finland. We sold the car 1998 and last week we bought it back.😄😄 Now I will fix it and I would like to buy rear trunk lid emblem logo badge sing (used) Crome. Do anyone have that item to sell it to me?

    Posting in hope that a newbie like myself will have a shorter path to locating and adjusting their headlights. If only it was as easy as popping the hood and reaching in. The metal framework that holds the radiator and front end together totally blocks the task from above. I did the drivers side and it take you 5-10 minutes. Basically you turn out the wheel Remove 3 screw and a pop rivet Reach up from underneath Use a small 8mm wrench Clockwise moves the beam down Short video: https://www.dropbox.com/s/fpakktuh82ybfxy/IMG_6295.MOV?dl=0

    I would think it would be a faulty alternator. Try disconnecting various fuses (starting with the larger capacity fuses) and see if the battery is then discharging May take some time to work through them all but when you find the one that is running a circuit drawing high current

    That would be to grab your attention by highlighting the fact that Reverse gear has been selected. Wouldn't want to inadvertently select that when moving forwards 😞

    Just wanted to put this short howto out there so Google can find it when the next person needs it. 2001 Toyota Echo Sedan rear driver or passenger window glass replacement, manual windows. Step one & two: Accidentally break window, find salvage yard with correct window, don't break it bringing it home. Step three: Remove inner door trim panel; remove window crank with a window crank removal tool (the retaining clip will attempt to flee), remove two obvious Phillips drive screws, from the bottom up, gently pry the panel away from the door until the clips pop out of the holes, lift the panel up and out to remove, set aside. Step four: Clean the tracks of broken glass, vacuum the broken glass out of the door, gently peel the clear plastic water barrier sheet up about halfway, tape up out of the way. Step five: This one had us stumped for a little bit. Remove the two screws mounting the rear window track to the inner door sheet metal, 10mm socket, which will leave space to slide the window down into the door. Put the front edge of the window into the front window track molding, but don't slide it all the way down just yet. Step six: Crank the window regulator up until it's near the roller guide rail on the bottom of the window. Pull up and back on the rear bottom corner of the window to tilt the window diagonally, and work the lift roller into the guide rail at the bottom of the window. I am writing this a day later, so it may be the other angle, but I'm pretty sure it's "back end up" diagonal. Step seven: Crank the window down most of the way, and firmly press the window forward into the front window track as far as it will go. From inside the door cavity, grasp the rear window track and twist it counterclockwise. This will rotate the open face of the track in and back just enough to slip the window into the track. Do so, then twist the track clockwise until window pops in and the mounting screw holes from step five line up, then reinstall and tighten the screws. Reassembly is pretty much the reverse of disassembly from here. Door panel hint; it drops into the window opening, with the plastic retaining fingers matching up with indentations. After it is in place, but before pressing the panel back into the door sheet metal, take a small flat plastic pry with rounded edges and work the rubber trim under the rear quarter window over the door panel to match the other side. A little 303 spray protectant on the rubber will make this much easier. Thanks for giving me a place to post this for future repairers!

    I just found this site. I bought my RAV4 last year. It is the best vehicle I have ever owned. I thought I was going to be a Jeep owner for life, but not anymore. RAV4 all the way!! No issues at all.

    This disables your car honking when you lock or unlock the door(s). NOTE: The car still chirps, but no horn. Turn the key over to ON (whole dash lights up) for 5 seconds and then turn it back one click to Accessories (radio on). Under the dashboard, above the footwell there is a light that blinks when the car is locked and the alarm is armed. Behind that light is a button. Press it three times. You will hear the chirp sound and then, FREEDOM for you and your neighbors!!!

    I recently had a drivers side sun visor fail on my 2006 Tacoma. I tore it apart, fixed it, and put it back together again. Here's a video of how I fixed it. I hope it helps the rest of you, not if but when it happens. https://youtu.be/ow0vdWhxZzM

    I couldn't find this information anywhere else so I am posting it here for anyone who is looking in the future. I added fog lights to my 2016 Corolla. I was able to use the factory wiring already in place. I had to replace the headlight stalk with one that had the fog light switch. I sourced one from eBay. The wires for the fog lights were already behind the bumper in place. I bought OEM Toyota LED fog lights that fit my car. I found fog light bezels on eBay. I used #10 3/4 hex head screws to install the lights. Once the new switch and lights were installed it just needed the relay for the fog lights. The 10A fuse was already installed from the factory in the fuse relay box under the hood next to the battery. I was unable to locate the location of the relay for the fog lights. I got a subscription to the TIS and was able to locate it through that documentation. It is behind the instrument panel. Once I was able to locate it I installed the relay and the lights work as they should. It is a clean OEM setup. The bonus is the LED fog lights match the color of the factory LED headlights. Relay Part Number: 90080-87026 Toyota LED Headlights: PT413-42191 Headlight Switch: 0R020 17F927 L59

    To take them out you have to take out the whole dash (which isn't as difficult as it sounds) there are a few screws behind the radio dash insert, the left grey trim peice and the gage cluster, and the most difficult of them, the two airbag screws (in which the glovebox has to be taken out to reach out under it) I'm sure there is a video online for it.

    I am the second owner of a 2008 Avalon Limited and it's at 228000. It rides like a 78 Caddy without the maintenance problems and way better gas mileage.

    I noticed the rattling sound coming from the back as well, and it drove me notes. I initially thought it was coming from inside the lift gate. Turns out the majority of the rattle was coming from the license plate, and the license plate border surround that’s placed overtop of the license plate, both of which are mounted to the vehicle with the same screws. Additionally, I noticed they were only mounted via the top two screws, and that there were no predrilled holes for the bottom two screws. I sat back there, with the music cranked up, and that license plate was rattling around like crazy. After securing it with the two bottom screws, and using rubber washers with the screws (also placed rubber washers on top two screws), I eliminated the vast majority of the rattle. Another option you can do, in addition to securing the license plate better, is adding Dynomat to your vehicles doors and lift gate. It makes a WORLD of a difference! Blocks out a ton of outside road noise, etc., but more importantly insulates the doors and lift gate, giving you much crisper sound. Cost is reasonable depending on how much of the vehicle you want Dynomatted, but worth every penny!

    Laureen, It was a good call to turn back as a precautionary measure. It could be a number of things. Did you recently fill up with gas? It may the fuel. Or it may be coolant seeping in the head thus mixing with fuel. If this were the case, the RAV4 would be running very rough. When you checked the oil, did you notice any frothing or bubbling on the dip stick? At this time, is it running smoothly or roughly at idle? Is there any moisture coming out of the tailpipe when it is running now? It may have been none of the above and it could have been something as off the wall as water in your tailpipe and or muffler from driving in deep water from heavy rain.
