jack up the car, put on stands. remove the front wheels, remove the nuts on the tie rod ends,and the lower ball joints, give the joints{ on the thick part of the metal } a good hit with a heavy hammer. this should let the joints come free.take the tie rod end loose first, then using a long pry bar pry the lower a frame down to release the lower ball joint.take the half-shaft nut loose . tap the shaft from the outside to free it from the hub.then push it through, when the shaft is free from the hub, pull the shaft to see if they are tight , they shouldn't be give them a sharp tug or yank to free them. but only do 1 at a time. then reverse this procedure to put back together,you do not have to have an alignment if you choose not to have one.

You can find fuel line routing information for your 1988 Corolla in Toyota service manuals. The Toyota service manuals can be purchased from most auto-parts stores.

Pre 1988 had four lug wheels then in 1987 (1988 model year) Corolla went to front wheel drive and 5 (five) lug wheels. All pre 1988 are the same, and all post 1988 same

The 1988 Toyota Corolla (excluding the FX16) takes 19" drivers side and 17" passenger side replacement windshield wiper blades (and a 13" rear wiper blade if applicable). The 1988 Toyota Corolla FX16 takes 17" on both sides front and a 13" rear. Be sure to always lookup the exact part numbers for the brand of wipers you decide to purchase. This not only ensures the correct lengths but also the correct attachments. See related links below.

I took mine to a repair shop. The sideways mouted motor makes it difficult to get at unless you pull the motor. Too close to the strut tower. At least it is on the fx-16 gts model.

I have since traded mine but I think it was made in the Toyota factory about 6 blocks south of here. I have since traded mine but I think it was made in the Toyota factory about 6 blocks south of here.
