Question about 2003 Toyota Avalon
(1)Clocked 75,000 kms and have had two sets of rear struts installed under warranty. Now squeaking again over bumps and can simulate the sqeak by pushing on the rear bumper . The local Toyota dealer/service now wants me to pay to replace the struts but it seems the problem will occur again in the not to distant future. The problem seems to get worse after driving on wet roads. I very rarely drive on unmade surfaces. (2) The handbook indicates a power failure but the car starts allthough a little tentatively. The terminals look clean. Fuel usage in on the high side of 12 liters /100Km with careful driving but otherwise the car is okay. Would appreciate any advice.
I would try good aftermarket struts.(seems there is an issue with oe).Have your charging system checked and a load test done on the battery....Good Luck...

Pop open the trunk and peel back liners so the upper strut mounts are seen, remove nuts from each strut mount. Jack up car and put stands under car to support it. Let rear suspension drop down and upper part of struts should come out of thier holes. And last of all remove bolts holding each strut and they wil fall out on the ground.
Reverse process to install.
