    The spring clip also broke off in my "99 Camry. Probelm is, I can't find the part to order online. Have any ideas on where to look online to identify and order the part? Did the previous writer glue it back on and did it stay?

Another idea! I believe that the little spring metal popper has wear hardened and broke off. It happened to me though I got out and forgot to open the fuel door first. When I reached back in I was outside the car and as the door opened with the help of the spring clip, for the last time, the broken clip fell to the ground with a tinkle sound and I picked it up not understanding at that time from where it came or what it was.
The next time I went to open the fuel door..nothing! I came in, did a search and found what it was and that it was a common problem. If you don't have the old one to plastic tie back on you can order a new piece that will be more involved to replace.
To get into the fuel tank now, wedge a small (1 & 1/2 too 2") prop under the fuel lever so it's all the way up and go back to the door and with a credit card just pry open the door. It won't take any pressure as it will just swing open.
Hope this helps......Frank

New or Old!?
The cable is probably just broken/jumped off, lift up the carpet and you should be able to open it, by pulling at the end! NOT THE CABLE ITSELF...;)

Trunk won't open

Lower the back seat and crawl into the trunk and see what the latch is doing when you activate the key fob. the trunk lid will have to be open to enable any repairs. Also an emergency release cable is probably visible (yellow handle) inside the trunk and will Open the trunk lid.

Trunk won't open

The actuator may sound as though it is working but the latch could be damaged or misaligned. Also, the actuator could be too weak to operate the latch. If it is necessary to replace the actuator, your Camry is old enough to make a junkyard a likely source.

Back doors won't open from the inside

Open the door from the outside and while open look at latch mechanism on door.
There should be a small sliding or toggle lever and it only has two positions.
Flip it to the other position...and this should fix it.

This is a safety feature to keep children from opening the doors from the inside...

Hope this helps...

Where is the fuse box for 92 toyota camry

The High-End fuses (large, high current fuses) are located on the driver's side of the car, under the hood, near the fender.
The general "spade" fuses are located in the car, on the driver's side, behind the little "stash" tray that flips down when opened. (It resembles and old-school ashtray mounted in the center console or door.).
Flip the "stash" tray down and rock it out of the dash. Once you do, you will see a bank of fuses and the fuse-box diagram should be on the back of the "stash" tray.
Hope this helps ya' !
Have a Blessed day.

How to open gas tank door

there should be a lever on the left side of the drivers seat. Or check the glove box. Have you tried pushing on the opposite side of the gas tank door? Let me know please, I have never worked on a new sienna and the input would be appreciated. I gave you common sites where it might be located.

The gas tank door won't open with the lever, only if I put something under the lever after pulling it up I can pry open the door

More than likely the metal spring on the inside of the gas door is broken where the plastic attaches. Have someone hold the fuel door lever in the release position while you gently use a flat head screw drive to open the door. The part should cost you less than $10 at Toyota.

Fuel Door will not open

the cable from the lever to the door has broken. If you look inside the trunk, (sometimes you will have to pull the carpeted side down) right behind the gas door, you will find a short emergency release cable with a loop on the end - grab and pull the loop and your gas door should pop open.

Seat belt does not move when i opn the door

If only one seat belt does not move when you open door then check the pink wire in the rubber boot passing from the door panel to the cabin around the door hinge, however if it is both seat belts that don't move when their respective doors are opened, the problem is in a little box located right under the hand brake lever, behind the shift lever, of course you have to remove some of the decor to get to it.
