How do you change the position indicator bulb power train or shift gear bulb in Toyota Avalon 1997?

The service book recommends changing the timing belt (and I would recomment also changing the water pump along with it, as it will save you time and money) every 90 k miles, or roughly 144 000 km, or 72 months. I personally exchange them every 150 000 km, on both my 2006 Toyota Avalon XLS and on Lexus ES 330.
During the whole process the car should never have to be started. Position 1 is in the off position, or the same as when you just put the key in and don't do anything, and position 2 is in the Accessory position. Same position when all the dash lights are on. And you can turn on electrical items in the car. Here are the steps to reset the oil change interval warning on the ML320…

In my 96 Avalon there is a screw in the outside bottom of the ashtray cover that when removed exposes the lighter. I did not discover it until after I had forced the entire ashtray past the stops by pushing on the stops with a screwdriver. I knew that was not correct, but it did work just fine and I was able to reattach my lighter which had come loose and kept blowing fuses.
