The thing that confuses everyone is the removing the door handle (where you grab to close the door when getting in) To remove simply pull upwards and it pops off, no screws. Inside will be two screws. There is one screw in the door opening handle. Then there are two chritmas tree fasteners that you …simply push in on the center and then pull the whole thing out. Once you have all the screws and trees out, you need to twist the door opening handle so it can slide in behind the door panel. The rest of the door panel is held on by more trees behind the panel that simple need a little tug. (MORE)
Answer . \nthere are grease fittings on the driveshafts only. there are 3 on the front and 6 on the rear driveshaft. raise the vehicle up and put the transmission in neutral. the driveshafts can then be rotated to expose the fittings at the u-joints and the sliding joints.
\n. \n Starter on a sr5 \n. \n. \nThe starter is located on the passenger side of the engine . \nLooking at it from under the truck, look up by the oil filter.\nIt will have 2 cylinderical bodies and is attached to the transmission\nhousing. To remove it is a challenge of course. \nThe bottom… bolt is fairly easy to see and remove.\nIt will have a pipe clasp attached to it.\n. \nThe top mount is a 14 mm nut on a stud at the bell housing.\nOn a r22 engine there is a cable running above it which makes it hard to see.\nOver slightly is the nut that holds the cable clasp.\nGetting to it you will need a swivel attachment near the socket and an 8 inch extender. The ratchet will have a little room to fit so you can turn it.\nOnce its loose and removed , you can move the starter and remove it. (MORE)
Do you have to remove the timing belt cover and timing belt to replace the water pump on a 97 Toyota 4 Runner?
As I understand, yes. Also, the timing belt and the pump have the same expected life so you will probably want to replace both.
To remove the door panel on a 2003 Toyota 4 Runner, locate thescrews holding the panel to the door. Unscrew these and lift thepanel up and away from the door.
Answer . 1. Disconnect battery connectors, or at least the positive side. 2. Disconnect the connections on the starter, should be 2. 1 is a locking push on connector the other has a nut. 3. Remove the bolts that hold the starter to the engine. On the V6 there are 2 bolts, top and bottom. On the 4… cly there can be 3 of them, top bottom and out to the side. 4. Here you have to make a judgment call depending on the type of vehicle. Some, like the 4 cyl 4 wheel drive model, will allow you to easily remove out the bottom. The V6 4 wheel drive model allows you to remove out the wheel well above the suspension arm. This is a tight fit and you need to turn it just so to get it to fit. 5. On some models you can replace individual parts on the starter. I saved $80 dollars doing this last week. 6. reinstall the same way you removed. (MORE)
It is a lot of work . \nMost of the bottom paneling needs to come off\n. \nstart on the drivers side and work you way to the passenger side\n. \n3/8 bolt next to the doors\n. \n . 2 phillps screws recessed \n . \nthere are also a couple in the glove compartment area\n. \nafter that the rad…io paneling should pop off\n. \nThis is what I had to do for my 91\n. \nI dont think there will be much difference (MORE)
How do you remove the face plate on the dash of a 1998 Toyota 4 runner- the clock fell out of its position and needs to be replaced?
Answer . take the plastic plate off that's under the steering wheel by removing the four bolts holding it... with it off you can reach up into the cavity where the clock is and simply snap it back into the holders...i just stumbled onto doing this myself and it's a cinch

Answer . \nI presume you mean to start after replacing the timing belt...as they can't start or run without it.\n. \nWhile the actual mechanics of replacing any timing belt my seem fairly basic...just removing covers, etc., the technical aspects are very exacting. Any deviation can cause damag…e or at least the engine not to start.\n. \nIf you turn over or change any part of the engine while the belt is off, not only do you substantially complicate things, you can easily cause lots of - even destroying - engine damage, especially if it is what is known as a 'no clearance' engine. (That means there isn't enough room for the pistons to clear the valves if the pistons go up - compression or exhaust strokes - while the valves are in the down or open position).\n. \nThe timing belt (or chain) works to assure the Cam shaft - which controlls the valve opening and closing timing, and the main Crank shaft, which controlls the piston stroke, are positioned EXACTLY where they need to be. Every part of these items must be exactly on time so each cylinder has all valves completely closed and the piston at the top of its rotation when the distributor tells the spark to flare, likewise the intake vale open when the piston is down, allowing fuel in, etc. All these things are going to happen 1 to 6 or 7 thousand times a minute! \n. \nGetting all those things at there exact locations, especially if you didn't put marks on the flywheels and engine when disassembling, are way past any possible Wiki discussion. Especially with an electronically controlled motor, a good level of mechanical engineering understanding and several fairly expensive or specific testers and equipment is generally needed. As is exactly specific setting data for the motor. Any variation will result in a motor running very badly if at all.\n. \nIt will start with finding TDC of cylinder 1. That is top dead center of the fisrt firing cylinder off the distributor rotation, and aligning the parts to be so the valves are closed and the pistion up (or off by an engineered amount provided). this actually happens 2x in any 4 stroke system, but one is fire the other compression stroke, meaning it's easy to be off 180 degrees if done without equipment checking or other indicators. And remember, all the while, you need to secure the valves in there up position to assure they don't get hit by the moving pistons. \n. \nAll that said, there is always the chance you did everything correct with your replacement, and still have something like a wire disconnected.

Answer . \nI would start by checking the starter relay first. It is in the fuse box, is often the problem and it's relitivly cheap.\nTo remove the starter\nYou start by collecting as many socket extentions as you can find. Unhook the battery completly, then jack up the truck take off the passeng…er side tire, at this point you have two choices either remove the suspention on this side of the truck or be ready for lots of fustration as you wrestle the starter out and the new one in. Unplug the starter relay wires and unbolt the main power cable from the batt. Unbolt the starter and take her out. (MORE)
Purchase a Haynes Manual from your local auto parts store.. It not hard to do just a pain. You have to take off alot of stuff.
turn on key and depress the reset button. let tire light flash 3 times and turn it off. this resets the 98/99 sienna. it may also work on the forerunner
Answer . Good question but not enough information. Which lights? Inside lights? Headlights? dash lights? Door lights?. All have their own areas. If it is the door lights then look at the switch in the door. Could be broken or loose. If it is the headlights then the relay for the lights is probab…ly stuck, tap it with a spoon and see if anything happens. If not check it with a meter. Any other light I would suspect a faulty wiring or switch going on. Without specifics it would be hard to diagnose. (MORE)
Answer . I think midas has a deal for I think $80. Either way it will most likely cost near or alittle more than $100
No you do not have to remove manifold. It is a tight fit to get starter out and then back in again,,,have patience and play the wiggle game,,g luck have fun.
Prep work. If you can go to a self wash car wash and clean the area really good. Remove the under carriage brush guard. Remove the battery.Place the car on a jack and remove the right wheel to get access into the wheel cavity. Now disconnect the connections on the motor. one is a 10mm nut and one a …push in connector with a tab to hold in place. Once off there are 2 bolts holding starter on. I suggest doing the one underneath first since the other can be done easily. Once lower is all the way out then loosen the top one and remove it. You can just slide the starter out the wheel cavity. There might be a small metal piece that needs to be removed. reverse order to install. Just don't tighten down the bolts until both are in and snug. (MORE)
Unless you are skilled in working with engines, I would advise you to bring it to a mechanic. If you are, get either a Hayes or Toyota manuel and go step by step to taking apart your engine. The knock sensor is in the exact middle of the engine.
On my 92 the pump was on the top of the tank. I therefore had to remove the gas tank to get to it. Unhook the battery. Then disconnect the hoses you can get to. Place jacks under the tank and let them put pressure on the tank. Then remove the straps holding the tank up. Begin lowering the tank and t…hen unhook any hoses you didn't do earlier. Once on the ground you can slide it out and then replace the pump. Empty the tank prior to installing to make it easier. Just be careful. When doing anything with gas you want to ensure it wont ignite by any flame. it might be helpful to also raise the car if necessary. (MORE)
I see you read the Owners Manual. Confusing isn't it? I have an 2003, 4.0 L, 6 cyl engine in mine and I tow a trailer with it. I use "Regular" and have NO problems.
The 2004 Toyota 4Runner was offered in a 4.7L V8 option (enginecode '2UZ-FE''). The coolant capacity for the engine is 13 quarts.
You need to drop the fuel tank. Also you need to remove the hoses that go from the fill port to the tank.
In a fuse box about 5 inches away from the battery on the lid of the fuse box it should have a little square that says "starter" if not then it is a purple relay about 1 inch by 1 inch.
If we are talking the smaller wire to the solenoid then just do a repair with a butt connector. If it is the large current carrying wire then you need to replace it completely. Look closely at it and then make a trip to the local parts store and purchase a replacement. Then take the ends off the con…nections of the old wire and install the new one back on the connector. That being said is the best thing to do for most back yard techs. If you have some training and materials you can do several other options. I cut one of mine once to reroute it, after some modifications. I took a section out of the middle, to keep my end connectors, and at the correct length I took off a 1/2 in section of insulation from both ends. Then carefully putting them together in a intertwined push together of the ends. Then taking out my handy pipe soldering torch I heated the ends and soldered them together. Then I use a rubber tape to insulate the repair. Followed by a good friction tape to protect the joint. Cost of about a dollar for the repair and an hours worth of time. But then I have the tools and materials. Either way you have a solid repair. Last advise. If you use a butt connector on a joint make it tight and then don't cover with electrical tape. Electrical tape is great at keeping water in it. (MORE)
right side of engine at the back of the engine on the lower side. Look in the right front tire wheel well at the back of the motor.
Drain the cooling system. Remove the water hoses from the heatercore. Remove the heater core retaining bolts. Reverse the processto install the new heater core.
depends on what is wrong. Doesn't turn, doesn't pull in solenoid, pulls in but wont turn over engine, spins but wont engage in the engine and turn it over? These are but a few. They make a kit to replace some parts. I have used them on many occasions and done just fine. If the brushes are worn you… can replace them OK. If the internal surface the brushes ride on are worn I suggest you replace the starter. No since stopping on a date and not being able to start the car. First remove it and see if you can find the problem. Decide if you can repair it with the kit and then go from there. (MORE)
melt your old windshield wiper and put it on the enjine, wait 4 an hour and collct the slime. then pour concerntrated sulphuric acid into the boot and put the slime into oyur fridge. they will magically mould into brand new ones. then pour the sulphuric acid (it should be blue) onto the windowscreen… and wait a bit longer until its all evapourated and left the scren sticky. stick the window screens where they need to go. to get rid of the stickiness of the rest of the window pour 188990 ml of alkaline onto it and wash of with diluted ribeana. trust me it works! . if you dont have the old windowscreen wipers than buy new ones, then pour the sulphuric acid (it should be blue) onto the windowscreen and wait a bit longer until its all evapourated and left the scren sticky. stick the window screens where they need to go. to get rid of the stickiness of the rest of the window pour 188990 ml of alkaline onto it and wash of with diluted ribeana.

is it 4 cly or v6? if it is a v6 you can take the fan off, or pull the radiator out.4cyl I'm pretty sure you got to pull the fan off.
Not sure if its the starter or the battery? Check the battery at a store. They can do a check on it for free. If its good then the starter could be bad. Bad starters don't work or they work intermittently. Usually just ehear a click and then when you retry it starts. That's the symptoms. Most places… can also check the starter for you. (MORE)
Should be the same as any 4 runner. Check my posts, I have answered it several times.
Depends on the year and model. My 86, also the 85 thru 93, is a 2 door. Under the rear passanger side seat is a cover. Its under the carpet. If you remove the cover you have access to the fuel pump. In my 92 4 runner 4 door with a V6 I have to drop the tank to get access to the pump.
Starters are easy once they are off the car. Remove the 2 nuts or bolts holding on the smaller solenoid cover. Then once out replace the contacts and reinstall the cover. Once in take the time to clean check and lube the mechanism. Any binding or issues should be dealt with now.
If you are asking about one of the new Electronic keys. It can be expensive and until recently only a dealer could do it. However recently the government has stepped in and (I believe) They have made the Auto industry turn over the Key coed to regular Key shops.. I suggest you go to a "Key Shop" (N…ot a hardware store) and inquire first about a new key. (MORE)
You dont HAVE to... but you should replace them in pairs. Out of four, if you still have two that are fairly decent you can postpone their replacement for awhile. Just make sure the tires of equal wear and tread-depth are are paired together.
You have to first remove the timing belt and then unbolt the water pump. This job requires some special tools, particularly a Toyota 3.4 liter tensioner relief tool. Other wise you would have to also remove the A/C compressor.
it should be under the hood. probably on the left side, in a plastic box that will probably be unmarked. there should be little clips on the side that are a pain to get off. there should be a sticker on the underside of the lid with the relay positions.
Simple: remove the small piston on the right side of the open glove box. Squeeze in the sides of the box to bypass the stops in the back of the box. It will fall forward. While you are at it open the long door behind the box and replace the "Cabin Air Filter' while you have it open.
On mine you remove the 4 Allen key bolts then remove the facia. This needs a little prying out at top or side. This should uncover the radio mounting bracket. Remove screws holding radio in and slide out. Disconnect wires by pulling gently whilst depressing little clip at the bottom of the plug.
The starter on a 1998 Toyota 4runner is held located on thetransmission housing. The starter is held on by 2 bolts which mountit directly it the engine. Remove the two bolts to replace thestarter.
I haven't done this, but know how to. You have to remove the air inlet duct work and the air filter housing. With those out of the way,you can see the starter. Remove the electrical supply and remove the cap screws holding the starter to the transmission housing.
drain rad. disconnect positive cable pull out rad and fan housing (this will free up much needed space) take off air in-take tube disconnect connector (push lock is out wards) disconnect power lead 10mm take out adjustment bolt 10mm pull 14mm bolt out (good to have 2 14mm wrenches for …this) may have to help is slide out now Alternator will fall out (MORE)
It's removed from inside the rear compartment. Open the rear hatch and on the inside of the light you will find a snap-off cover. open it and remove the light assembly with a 1/4 turn. The bulb assembly should pop out
