If you look at the armrest side that is "away" from where it is attached to the seat, you will see a small circular cover. Using a small flat screwdriver, pry this cover off; it is held in by 2 small claws. When the cover is removed, it will expose the bolt that you need to remove to remove the armrest. Hint: tape the end of the scrwdriver so you do not deform the plastic cover or the part that the cover fits into. Quite an easy proceedure.

How di I replace the armrest in a 2005 Mercedes c230 sedan


I am assuming you are talking about the front center armrest here. You have to start by removing the back cover of the center console along with the vent louvres if equipped. I think this will expose two screws that you need to remove and the armrest will pull out. If you are trying to remove the armrest because the latching mechanism has gotten out of sync, you can fix that in the car. If that's the case let me know and I'll try to walk you through the repair process.

Which is the break light fuse on 05 highlander?


First of all it is a BRAKE (not break) light fuse. Link to the manual section: http://www.toyota.com/t3Portal/document/om/OM48537U/pdf/8.pdf

the fuse is #39 They make this easy for you to find. You put in your model and year and then you can search the manual for what you need. i.e. 'fuse' BUT I suspect (just a guess) it is not a fuse because the fuse is a 20 amp fuse and also supports the fuel injection system. There are other fuses that support the fuel injection system too (?!?) but if none of your brake lights are working including the third high brake light then pull this one and see if it is blown.
Here is the link for the full manual: http://www.toyota.com/owners/web/pages/resources/owners-manuals#Owners-Manuals

Lastly, I think you should submit the idea to Toyota: Break light! Great idea!

How to replace armrest latch


If you are talking about the center armrest between the two front seats, the repair is easy. The plastic latch can be ordered for about $10 and replaced by taking apart the top lid assembly. I did it and it is not hard at all. Now if you are talking about the armrest compartment, that is one the I have not had any luck figuring out and have not found a solution to from anyone else.
If anyone knows how to reattach the armrest please let me know. My e-mail is pvd3@yahoo.com. Thanks, Pete

Anyone have picture/illustration of where the spark plug are located on a 2005 highlander?


  1. 1 Pull the hood release and raise the hood on the Highlander. Allow the engine plenty of time to cool.
  2. 2 Remove some components to reach the spark plugs. On a 3.3 liter engine, unscrew and remove the V-bank cover and intake air tank. On a 2.4 and 3.0 liter engine, remove the number one engine cover.
  3. 3 Locate the ignition coils and spark plug wires that connect directly to the spark plugs or directly to the engine in the Toyota Highlander. In 2001 and 2002 models, theses are on the front and back of the engine. On models made after 2002, the spark plugs are along the sides. Grab the ignition coils or spark plug wires by the thick plastic piece at the end of the wire. Squeeze the end and turn it to release it from the spark plug. Pull back to remove the plug from the engine.
  4. 4 Slide the spark plug socket over the spark plug. The most common size of spark plug socket used on a Toyota Highlander is 16mm. Turn the socket to the left to unscrew and remove the spark plug from the cylinder well.
  5. 5 Apply a thin coat of anti-seize compound to the spark plug thread and into the wire boot to reduce the chance of sticking.
  6. 6 Insert the spark plug into the well and manually turn the plug into place. If you cannot reach the plug well manually, insert the plug into the socket and extension and use the extension to turn the plug into place. Do not use a socket wrench or flexible extension for this process because their force damages the spark plug.
  7. 7 Connect the ignition coil or spark plug wire to the spark plug. Turn to lock it into place.
  8. 8 Continue this process for the rest of the spark plugs. Replace any removed items onto the engine and lower the hood.

Should my highlander with 70000 miles need automatic transmission fluid flush and a power steering flush?


it never hurts to service the power steering and the transmission, but at 70xxxmi it is not necessary if you check the owners manual it should show a transmission service at 100xxxmi but you will find nothing in the owners manual about the power steering this is a fairly new thing that we are seeing some shops do, i am not sold on weather it needs done at all.

2005 Highlander: I don't think four wheel drive is working. How can I determine? Is there a switch for four wheel drive, as someone suggested?


Are you sure your vehicle is a 4 wheel drive version? Double check your model information to make sure. If it is, technically, it is all wheel drive - meaning the other wheels engage automatically when the vehicle detects that they are needed. I have an 05 Highlander AWD, too. Good choice. I love mine! Good luck.

Recently the instrument panel on my 05 Highlander (4 cyc) has been displaying a messsage: "O/D OFF". If I stop and restart the engine, the message disappears. What does this indicator mean? My owner's...


overdrive is an over dirve gear for your truck. there should be a button on the shifter to engage or disangage the overdrive. For the most part the overdrive should be "on". It gives you the best fuel mileage and lets the engine turn at a slower speed on the freeway. You can use the overdrive "off" position to slow the truck on a long downhill.
