You have a very common problem. The window rubbers get dirty and that slows the operation down, the dirt acts like "brakes" on the glass. What I do is spray 100% silicone spray down each side of the window, and run it up and down several times, then repeat. I have had very good results doing this. There is no need to remove the door panels to perform this lubrication. Nor, is there any need to lube the actual window motor assembly. This should help you out. A FixYa rating for my assistance would be appreciated.

I have 1999 Toyota corolla and the front window some times goes up, sometimes not!


I'm assuming it is a power window. It may be a loose connector in the power bezel, or over time the switch contacts have go comtaminated (moisture-rust-dirt). Remove the power bezel and inspect the connector and switch. does this impact the other windows as well? Good Luck

93Toyota Corolla DX > Rear Defogger Inop


If you have a 12 volt test lamp, try this: Turn on the rear defroster. Attach the clamp to a good ground point; the door latch hoop is good)...Now, touch the test lamp to the extreme left and extreme right sides of the grids, on the inside of the glass. If the light does not light in either place, you probably either have a bad defroster relay, or the wires coming to the rear grids is off. Please feel free to get back to me with the results of your test.

1995 Toyota Corolla Door Handle


My husband (who is a weight lifter) managed to bust our door handles three times during the hot summer months. It was about $35 for the not so fancy handles and installation, I think over $50 for someone to do the fancy painted handle (driver's side door). We had it done since I think at least one of the times, the door would have had to be dismantled.
FYI the Toyota dealer said that in the hot summer months, the door handles were the items ordered the most for Toyotas across the board. We don't live in a hot climate anymore, and havent had any problems with melted/broken handles.

1999 Toyota Camry LE - Driver's Side Electric Window


What you have could be one or both of the following:
Dirty/sticky window tracks, or a window motor issue.
What I would do before you take it in: Get some 100% silicone spray, lower the window, and spray the lubricant down inside the door, on the rubber strip that the window travels in. Run the window up & down to get the lubricant worked in. See if that helps.
What is happening here is this: There is a thermister built into the drive motor, and when the motor gets a little too hot (working too hard, with dirty window rubbers), it opens, like a circuit breaker. When it cools off, the thermister contacts close, and the window works again. 2 things cause this: Dirty window run rubbers, or a motor that is beginning to fail.
Hope this helps. Feel free to comment back for more info...

How to replace Marker lamp in 1999 Toyota Corolla


Open the hood. Observe the area above the right headlamp, close to the fender. You will see a phillips screw that holds a plastic tab. Remove the phillips screw. After removing the screw, pull the marker lamp assembly towards you. It may be real tight, if it has never been removed before. You need to pull the light assembly out of 2 retention sockets behind the marker lamp. Rotate the bulb socket to get to the bulb, replace the bulb, & slide it back in.Easy job.

Power window problems


More often than not, the switch contacts in the driver door window switch get burnt from repeated uses; a common problem. If this is the case, you will need to replace the driver door master switch.
