I can't seem to get the old lift off of the bracket that attaches to the body. The replacement lift, says there should be a snap ring, but it's an after-market part so it's a little different than the manufacturer's one.

as far as sedan, coupe or wagon, it won't matter since the headlamps don't change for either
however, a sedan is a 4 door with a trunk a coupe is traditionally a 2 door but can also be a 4 door with a hatchback and a wagon... well, that's easy... think of the old station wagons from the 70's and 80's
they are usually held in by two #10 metric nuts located under the black plastic shield on the inside of the door... I am not sure if the door panel must come off to get the plastic plate off the backside of the mirror or if the plastic shield(plate,cover,etc.) can be lifted off with a pry motion from a screw driver) hope this helps.
ON MY 1990 CAMRY IN THE TRUNK LOCATED ON THE BACK SEAT IS A TYPE OF SWITCH TO UN LOCK THE SEAT THEN INSIDE MY CAR AT THE HEAD REST ON EACH SIDE YOU PULL UP ON THIS BUTTON LOOKING THING AND THE SEAT FOLDS DOWN
MY SEAT IS A SPLIT BACK WITH IT DOWN YOU CAN CLIMB RIGHT THROUGH TO THE TRUNK
a new engine is $25-35,000 dollars(if Toyota even has them) The rebuilt engines are very good. 3 yrs-unlimited miles on repairs/replace engine. Get a name brand engine like Jasper or Atk or BulletProof or Gopher. These ARE Toyota engines rebuilt(sometime better than original) The transmission has evidently been a great one(mine has 185,000 miles).<p>
You've done great on this car. But to replace engine and transmission; you looking labor and parts:$7-8,000. If you fix it, it will last forever, and you'll know it's good.<p>
Or you could buy a certified used Toyota, and buy an extended warranty.<p>
The only other thing is to buy new-$20-25,000 for a new Camary v/6 ( I don't know if they even make the wagon anymore)<p>
I hope this has helped. Good Luck with whatever you decide.
I had the SAME problem with my 1992 Camry LE...except without the water..First, check the back up lamp fuse (there is more than one circuit on that fuse, not sure which). The water would have likely shorted out the circuit. First check for power at the reverse bulb while the car is in reverse (You can do this with the car off) If there is power, check the ground wire, if it is bad...if you splice the ground wire before the connector and run a new wire to a ground in the trunk, then it should work..thats what was wrong with mine..hope this helps
On the ends where the lift cylinders attach there is a spring clip that wraps around the end of the lift cylinder, take a small pocket screwdriver and remove these U clips and just pull the lift cylinder free, make sure you have the trunk supported so it doesn't knock you out.
all you have to do is inspect the old trunk door how it is attached to the hinges.
be careful on the tension bars that are lifting the trunk. once you released them, the trunk would just fall down.
there are two of these tension bars, they are like springs to help you lift the trunk and they are very tricky to remove and install after you have done that then it just a matter of removing 2 bolts on each side of the hinge and remove the trunk.
if you have electrical accessories attached to the trunk such as solenoids or trunk cables, remove them first.
then do the reverse on installation.
you may want somebody helping you hold to the trunk before you remove the bolts. they are heavy.
