SOURCE: I have an automatic gear shift console light bulb

That is a very tough bulb to replace. Once you get the center console pieces out of the way there should be a couple of screws or blots that hold down the trim around the gear shift. Remove those and lift gentley. You will barley be able to access the bulb. but it can be done.

SOURCE: Toyota Avalon Rear View Mirror

Hi-,
I had the same problem - the inside rear view mirror fell off during a hot summer day. I bought the mirror glue (adhesive) and wondered how to I separate the metal button from the mirror. Enventally, I tried the following and successully separated the metal button from the mirror: There is a little squre slot on the plastic sheath of the metal button. Please find a small flat-ned screw driver whose tip can fit into the sqare hole. put the screw driver into the hole and put it all the way inside down - which will open a little bended metal piece that stops the buttom; at the mean time, slide the metal button towards outside. As the bended metal piece opened uder the pressure of the screw driver, the metal button is freely moveable and can be slide out.
I did this successfully for my Toyota Avalon 1998 car.

Hope it helps.
Wei

You must open the center console lid and remove the 2 Phillips head screws above the fuse station to expose the ashtray Phillips head screws.Remove the ashtray screws and carefully pull he ashtray back towards the center console. After the ashtray is removed take your hand an feel under the wood grain unit for the 2 plastic wing nuts holding the wood grain in place. Remove them and gently lift the wood grain up and out of the way. Remove the 4 Phillips head screws holding the AC controls and Radio bracket. Place the gear shifter in drive to pull the whole unit out. Sounds like a lot but takes about 10-15 mins to complete.

Im trying to remove the factory radio and install a new one


First you need to gently pry off the wood grain cover around the gear shift. Then you'll see the the two screws on either side at the bottom holding the faceplate around the radio. These should be the only two screws. Before I discovered this, I had tried to pry it off starting at the top. I found it was held on by plastic clips until I got to the very bottom, and said WTF? Then I found a picture, and said Oh duh :)
