I just changed mine and after trying to get the screws out and stripping them I finally read you have to take a hacksaw and saw them right past the O shaped thing at the top. Once you do that, you have to heat the screw for about 15-20 seconds and then take a 12mm bolt and unscrew it. Sounds crazy and I did everything but to try and get these off and nothing worked but this. Here is the link I just found, you might have to register to view it but it shows step by step with pics.

Removing the bolts that connect the ball joint and socket on the support arms are nearly impossible. I tried heating the bolts up to loosen the factory lock-tight on the threads. It didn't help and I nearly stripped the bolts anyway.

My solution costs more money, but hey, it worked:

I took the car to my favorite tire/brake/misc. repair shop. They said they could remove the bolts in about a half hour and charged me $44. In the end, they couldn't get the old bolts out either and were afraid to heat up the bolts with a propane torch as they were worried about paint damage. So they sawed the ball joint off of the old support arms, left the factory bolts in, and then I just installed the new support arms using the factory ball joints. Viola.

Sometimes you can find an aftermarket plastic spoiler to wrap around the top of the hatch to catch the water.

I would like to know how to locate the spark plugs on my celica GT.


They are between the cams. On top of the engine there are 4 wire bundles in the center of the valve/cam cover connecting to the spark coils. Undo the connectors and remove the single bolt for each one. Lift up the spark coil assemblies and find the spark plugs in the bottom of the hole underneath good luck.
