Fixing the clock on a 1999 Toyota 4Runner How do you remove the dashboard panels so you can get to the clock?
OK, just paid $7 for this one to learn how to remove the radio/CD/cassette player.
1. lift upon the cover on the center arm console. 2. It starts here, pull UP on the cover/panel over the "parking break" releasing all the holding clips, pull the cover off/over the parking break and set to the side, 3. The next panel to come off is the one over the gear ship (you are now working your way up towards the clock), again gently release all the holding clips, 4. Remove the ashtray, 5. From the bottom of the clock/climate control/entertainment console pull away from the bottom going up, again gently releasing all the holdling clips.
If your LED digital clock has stopped working or is exhibiting intermittent or blank display, this is a fairly common problem with LED digital clocks of Japanese auto makers. Many of them have clock modules that show similar symptoms over a period of time. Just be sure that the cigarette lighter is functional, if it is not then it is the fuse which controls both.
If you can remove the clock yourself, you can have it refurbished at a decent price at www.subaru-clock.com or on eBay from a variety of vendors.
My 1995 Chevy corsica's rocker panels are starting to rust Would I be compromising the frame to fix this?
There are three nuts holding the strut to the body. Get access by removing panels under the dashboard. Getting a wrench or a socket to get to the nuts is a challenge. The wheel needs to come out, and a brake line needs to be disconnected. Replacing the strut itself requires a heavy duty spring compressor.
How can you get the tailgate of a 1991 Toyota 4Runner down if the window is stuck in the up position?
Climb in the back and remove the panels for the tail gate. You have 2 options. Get a couple of wires and run them from the battery to the connector for the window. Then manually move the motor down. If the problem is with the motor then you must remove the motor mechanism to get the window to come down. Neither allow quick return of the motor to the up position, but they will allow…
I have an 08 Sierra. I have taken off the dash sections to the left of the speedometer cluster and the panel covering the radio/HVAC area.

Now, I have taken off both the panels just by prying them off with my fingers and then working them…
If the panels are like the 95 and 96 models, you don't need to remove door panels....carefully pop the grill covers off the door panels...there is a speaker mount behind the grill...remove the 4 speaker screws and your done. Start with the top of the grill and pull gently downward. There are metal clips on the cover and plastic hooks to the side which all hold it in place. Slow and careful is the name…
It is conveniently located on the passenger side forward surface of the defrost air distributor. To access it, remove the dashboard cover, remove the air conditioner controls and radio, remove all right side lower dashboard fasteners, noise deadening panels, etc, pull dashboard assembly away from firewall, rotate defrost air distributor slightly clockwise, and you can reach in and remove the module (grey) with a 7mm open end wrench this guy is exactly right.
The panels on a space probe are called solar panels. Solar panels are panels that turn light into energy so astronauts and cosmonauts do not need to change the batteries. Not only do space probes have solar panels, some cars, houses, and all sorts of electronics can use solar panel. Solar panels do not pollute. This is why they use solar panels.
There are plastic interior panels in the rear of the trunk/cargo area. Pop them off and that will reveal the access to the light sockets from behind. From there, pull out the socket assembly (might have to rotate it 90 degrees or so for it to come out), replace the bulb, put the sockets back in and put the panels back on.
