    replacing bushing in rear beam

    I am much more advanced that 7-year old and don't dream on any carrier. But seriously would like to know if this job is for DIY . So any constructive instruction or comments would be helpful. I know that I can rent bushing press from AutoZone.

    replacing bushing in rear beam

    Maybe those videos will inspire you to make your own YouTube video for rear axle beam. You may be the next YouTube star. If a 7-year old can make 22 million ...

    replacing bushing in rear beam

    Using Google, I found some cool videos that may be helpful? I've never done anything like you are asking, so apologies if this is not what you are looking for.

    replacing bushing in rear beam

    I didn't get any response so I will simplify my question. Do I have to remove entire axle beam to replace bushings? And how challenging it is?

    Groaning Noise Under Acceleration

    I’m having the exact problem. What did the mechanic say was the issue?

    replacing bushing in rear beam

    I do have 2007 corolla with 135K. I recently noticed that bushing on the driver side in rear beam is cracked. It definitely affects comfort of driving. I want to replace it but don't know exactly how big job it is. So any advice, picture or just sharing experience will be very much appreciated. Also should the other one (passenger side) be replaced at that time. Thanks
  10. Wow. Even with the new model out, and I might add a great improvement over the old one, US Toyota Camry sales plummeted by 30%! Excitement over the new Corolla, or perhaps all the standard safety gear, pushed the Corolla up by 9% (for November). Overall, Toyota hit 190,423 sales in the US, keeping it safely above Fiat Chrysler. The RAV4 and Tacoma both did quite well, and average transaction prices were over $32,000, which is pretty good; incentives, around $2,600 per car, were down from last year. Overall Toyota fell by 0.3% and Lexus by 2.5%. Year to date, Toyota has sold a stunning 278,293 Corollas and 314,346 Camrys, putting it ahead of quite a few entire car companies just based on those two models. During the month, the Camry alone outsold quite a few brands... and neatly beat all three Dodge/Chrysler sedans and coupes combined. By the month, the Sienna is down by 12% to 6,726, putting it between the Dodge Caravan and Chrysler Pacifica. The RAV4 is flying off the shelves, with 35,350 in November alone; Highlander passed 20,000. Toyota's decision to dedicated Corolla production space to RAV4s is making more sense every day. The Tacoma hit 19,685 sales; Tundra, oddly, has stayed stable, with 9,689 sales, despite being hopelessly out of date in a competitive market. Here’s the full sales chart! (Click for full size)

    1999 Corolla parking/tail lights won't turn off

    I replaced my relay with a digital one, so I won't have hyperflashing with the LED bulbs I installed. It was a pain to get to the relay, but well worth it.
  12. Thanks for the information. I was not able to remove the relay, but did pull the fuse to get the parking lights turned off. Now I don't have to disconnect the battery to keep the lights off. I saw in your other post that you changed the relay and it didn't solve your problem. Sorry to hear that. From what I've seen, you must have gone to a lot of effort to remove the relay. On mine, there's a heater duct blocking access to the relay; so I'll probably have to remove a lot of stuff to get access to the relay.

    1999 tail light relay

    Screw that idea it's most likely worn, I guess I need to come into this century of throw away everything world. This is the result when Toyota and Chevrolet get into bed together, they should have renamed the company to "Toilet"

    1999 tail light relay

    Oh yeah, I've read too many reports of this similar problem....I think a recall would have been nice or some support to get to the root of it. I guess no one here has ever figured it out. I may try a multifunction switch from a boneyard next.

    1999 tail light relay

    Well got it loose and pulled the relay but replacing the relay did not fix the parking lights staying on with the switch and key off. Idk this car is turning into a pos. It was built in the US and I believe quality is inferior. I guess I will either rig a toggle switch to the 15amp fuse or pull the terminal every drive. What junk! Diagnosing this would cost $$$ and throwing parts at it cost $$$

    Heated seats installation questions

    I finally have time to install heated pads from Rostra. It was not hard but time consuming. It is working for a month now. I used tie wrap or zip tie to replace hog rings. To make sure the heat pads stick to the seats for the long time, I used 3M adhesive spray on the seats. I also use one extra fuse 5A for the accessory line. The reason I chose Rostra due to 3 years warranty and once I put it on the seat, I don't want to touch it anymore. Monkey123

    1zz-fe and oil consumption and new dipstick

    Here is an interesting thread on that topic ... You may just want to consider replacing rings on your piston as an alternative. This is likely cause, but should consult with a mechanic.

    More RAV4 issue

    Hope you are right. I'm a bit worried maybe its not going to be like our other Toys. Now the passenger seat has a rattle in it. Just might be this one was built on a Monday though the 2018 Rolla they gave me as a loaner with 5000 miles on it had several loud rattles. Guess they dont build them like they used to. One thing that did go away....that clicking sound when back it up. That was gone after the seal was fixed. Now I did have them rotate the tires too but makes me wonder if it was something with seal repair? I really like the RAV a lot.....though I still dont like the pedal positions Toy uses on their Rollas/Ravs. I'm only 5'6 but the pedals feel like they are to close and the seat doesnt go far enough back. And the touch screen radio.....I cant believe the slide bar they use when using the USB port doesnt work using your finger. Only the wheel/ radio buttons will FF through a MP3 and its way to slow!!! I listen to several "car /garden" shows and some are 2 hours long so I want to listen to the 2nd half at another time. But once you leave that file going back starts it over. With the slider working with your finger would be perfect.
  20. Does anyone one know how to access this relay located on the back side of the fuse block behind the coin box?
  21. It's behind the coin box on the drivers side. Take out the coin box and the relay is on the back side of the fuse block you will see. Try lightly tapping just below the 15 amp fuse to see if the relay is stuck. If it is the lights will turn off. I need to change mine but haven't been able to yet.

    More RAV4 issue

    Yeah, could be any of the above, or combination of them. Sometimes you can get lucky/unlucky with these things. Sounds like you just caught an unlucky break on the seal. Still, after being fixed, should be able to drive it until you get tired of the car. Toyota did make a number of improvements to this generation of Rav4 compared to the previous generation (still hotly debated though). I have both a 2009 and 2016 Rav4s - if you could combine the two, that would make a pretty nice vehicle. Both (knock on wood) have been pretty reliable, aside from some shoddy recall work done by the dealership.

    Questions: Axles & alignment

    The way you can tell, if the tires aren't wearing oddly, is by putting it onto the machine. It doesn't take much time to check out and they get a color printout telling you exactly what's wrong, if that's the case. Of course they can fake that (getting a slip from a known-bad car, or reusing the same one), but if you need an alignment, they should show you the justification. That said, yes, if you change the axles, you need to do an alignment afterwards. Most of the front suspension bits, if you replace them, you have to check alignment next.

    Questions: Axles & alignment

    My mechanic informs that my Corolla both axles (right and left) need to be replaced. Recently my Corolla had the 4 wheels alignment service (but the alignment service warranty has expired) and the tires are wearing evenly. Is alignment service necessary after replacing the axles? Thanks, 1999 Corolla (US version) 180K miles

  26. Great Info Thanks for share
  27. Road7star says that the axles didn’t fit but was there ever a work around found (like a combination of 2 axles that made work? i.e inboard joint from 8th gen put onto the shaft and outboard joint of the 9th gen)
