Question about 1998 Toyota 4Runner

How do I replace the parking light on the driver's front side? I removed the one screw which goes into the frame but the light unit would not lift out for easy access to the lamp.

    I was able to get the light housing off by removing the one screw and then giving it a good tug.  However, I had to pull so hard that I ripped the wiring out of the back of the light fixture.  Any solutions on fixing that problem?

How to replace subaru quarter glass


Hi Mom, I'm wondering how your spinach pie tastes? Replacing the quarter light is not an easy job, but if you're handy with wrenches and screw drivers here goes. Open the offending door and remove the power window switch by gently lifting it with a thin flat screw driver. Disconnect the cables by releasing the locking tap on the underside of the unit. Remove the back cover of the door release handle by either removing the single screw or un clipping it, Using a Philips screw driver, remove the two deep screws under the arm rest. Borrow the pastry knife from your kitchen and at the lowest part of the door insert it between the panel and the door frame, and then gently pry it towards yourself until you hear the press studs pop open. Repeat the same action all the way around the bottom and up the two side of the door and when loose, lift off the panel and place it out of the way of the kids. Re attach the switch controlling the window and lower the window to where you can reach the bolts (10mm) with a socket wrench. The bolts hold the regulator to the window. Loosen them and remove and lower the regulator all the way down, until you can pull the window up at an angle allowing you to remove it from the door. carefully lift and remove it and put it somewhere safe. remove the rubber weather strips and from the top of the door frame together with the strips inside the rail the window moves on. If you follow the rail of the window to where it is fitted to the door frame you will see another 10mm bolt at the bottom. Before removing that one mark the position as exactly as possible. (The position is critical for smooth operation of the window). Remove the weather strip around the outside of the frame of the door and on top you will see the upper bolt holding the rail (which should also be marked) Remove that and then the rail. The quarter light is held into position by a rubber which surrounds it.Being very careful of any glass which may have remained in the rubber gently remove it and after cleaning it, fit the replacement into the rubber. With the glass in place fitting it into the correct position is not going to be easy. A good idea is to smear a light coating of white petroleum gel onto the parts of the rubber which fit into the door frame before fitting it. When the quarter lite has been fitted and the rail placed in position reassembly is opposite to disassembly. Keep in mind that when fitting back the window it must be aligned with the rails which should be finally tightened after the window is fitted. Now tell me, while you're busy doing that, who's gonna bake the spinach pie? Best regards John

How do i change light in shifter


This is not the easiest fix, so if you are unfamiliar with car electronics or console removal and replacement i would advise against trying this yourself. It can be done easily by someone skilled with car electronics.

1. Remove chrome bezel, Its popped in place so get a small flathead to wedge it up SLOWLY. There are four contact points that hold this in place. The contacts are near the "P" and "1" symbols.

2. lift console lid and unscrew both hex screws with a socket wrench.

2a. You may need to reposition the shifter from park to Drive in order to pull the section out completely. Dont forget to apply the parking brake! with key in ignition but engine off, shift back to drive or neutral.

3. start lifting the console/ cupholder section up from the side nearest the screws you just removed. This big piece will pop out with gentle pressure.

4. on top of the shifter remains the black bezel with your shifter positions "P, R, N, D etc. This black piece pops out but cannot be fully removed because the shifter handle is too wide. Pop the 4 contacts in each corner to lift the piece.

5. you will now see the "track" section of the shifter. White plastic frame on your drivers side and black on the opposite side. Underneath the white side, you will see 2 small wires leading into your shifter symbol case. These wires are your power source for the bulb.

6. Twist the bulb frame (the black piece that the wires lead into) to unlock the bulb. If the bulb is fried it will have broken filaments.

I had the same issue with my light going out, only my issue was the wiring had gone bad from rubbing against the shifter. I clipped out the bad section of wire and replaced it with a small LED light.

If you decide to do the same, the White wire is your hot 12volt switched. The black is your negative/ground.

Are shift settings supposed to light up? Is it a


Yes, they are supposed to light up. I believe that's on the same fuse as the instrument cluster, so if that lights up don't worry about the fuse. It's probably just a burnt out bulb. To replace, remove the knob - 2 screws, one in the front one on the rh side lift up, use thread lock to install, remove the floor console - seats forward remove one screw each side in the back, pull up to remove the parking brake console, seats rearward remove 2 screws from shift console, 2 pushpins each side, remove cupholders, lift and remove console. four screws to remove dial bezel then you'll see the connector for the lamp (the parking brake handle and gear selector will have to be moved to different positions to move console)

Glass on sliding door


this is the link to the information http://www.swisco.com/Screen/how-to-repl...

Opening your patio sliding glass door should be an easy task. If your sliding door is giving you a work out every time you open it, most likely it is your rollers that are causing the problem. The rollers are located on the bottom of the sliding door and give the door the ability to slide. Often times they get dirty and wear out, making it difficult to open the door. If you have an older sliding glass door your rollers may have become rusty because sliding door units did not always use stainless steel rollers.

Hiring a professional to replace your rollers could cost you around $100 not including the cost of the replacement parts. Below are detailed steps containing all the information you will need to know to replace your patio sliding glass door rollers yourself.

* Before you start, understand that you need to take the sliding glass door out of its frame to work on the rollers. The sliding glass door is heavy. You may need the assistance of another to help you remove the door.

1) Your patio glass door will have two separate glass units. One unit is the door that you slide and the other unit is stationary. First, stand outside your house and look at your sliding glass door. If the stationary unit is between you and the sliding unit you will most likely have to remove the stationary unit so that you can get to the glass sliding unit.

Before you go through the trouble of removing the stationary unit, first try to go inside your house and see if you can remove the sliding unit. Usually you cannot because there is a lip along the bottom of the patio glass door frame (it keeps moisture out of the house) that prevents the sliding glass door from being removed from the inside.

If the rollers on the bottom of the door are difficult to get over the lip, you can adjust them to help you create more room (go down to step 2). If it is not the rollers but the sliding unit�s frame preventing you from pulling the sliding unit out of the door frame, you are going to need to remove the stationary unit first before you can remove the sliding unit.

To remove the stationary unit, you first need to take out your screen door (if you have one). Lift one end of the screen door frame and use a screwdriver to lift the roller on the bottom of the screen door frame off of the track. Do this to both ends of the screen door and your screen door will pull out of the door frame.

The stationary unit is held in place by a metal piece that runs along the bottom of the track from the corner of the stationary unit to the bottom of the side jamb (there is a chance this piece is missing but if you do have one remove it from the track). After you have removed the metal piece, look for screws holding the stationary unit frame in place. After removing all of the screws try pulling the stationary unit out of the door frame. If you are having trouble pulling out the stationary unit, try placing a screwdriver between the stationary unit�s bottom frame and the track it is resting on. Lift up on the screwdriver while you have a helper pull out the stationary unit from the door frame. Be careful not to use too much force with the screwdriver so that you do not damage the door track.

2) You may need to create more room when you attempt to remove the sliding unit from the door frame. To create more room you can adjust the rollers on the bottom of the sliding unit. By turning the adjusting screws on the rollers clockwise the wheels move up into the sliding unit�s frame giving you more room. The adjusting screws are located either at the bottom of the sliding unit�s frame or in the sides of the frame. There is a chance that there are plugs covering the screws.

After you adjust both rollers (one on each side of the sliding units frame) try to remove the sliding unit from the door frame. If the unit is still getting stuck you may need to get someone to help you. Have your helper lift one side of the unit and pull outwards while you try to pry the other side of the unit over the track.

3) To remove the rollers from most sliding units you need to remove the bottom of the sliding units frame. Most likely the screw that holds the roller in place is the same screw that holds the frame together. Remove the screw from both sides of the unit. Then try to remove the bottom piece of the frame off of the sliding unit; you may need to use a rubber mallet or a piece of wood and tap on the bottom of the frame until it comes off of the sliding unit.

Now that you have removed the bottom of the frame you can take a close look at your patio glass door rollers. Remove one of the rollers and match it up with one of the rollers on this page http://www.swisco.com/page/SI/CTGY/patio...

It is a good idea to replace both sliding door rollers at the same time to prevent extra wear-and-tear to one new roller, which will have to work twice as hard when paired with an older roller.

4) After your new rollers come in, replace your old rollers with the new ones. To make it easier to install the sliding unit back into the door frame, adjust the rollers to be all the way up into the frame. Once you have the sliding unit back in the door frame you can adjust the rollers for optimal performance. Keep adjusting the rollers until the door is sliding back and forth easily
