    They are bulbs, however, I am trying to remove the entire assembly (not just the bulb) and, after unbolted, they don't want to slide out... didn't know if there was a trick to it...



    I am replacing the high and low beam assemblies passenger side

  • brownendb May 24, 2009

    yes

  • brownendb May 24, 2009

    The challenge seems to be that they will not slide forward without conflicting with the front cowling... but there is no way to slide them back without removing alot of other parts...



    It is almost as if you have to loosen the front cowling to get them out and that seems excesive...

SOURCE: 2001 Toyota Celica GTS Clutch

i paid a friend to do it because it's a lot of work! if you haven't already treid to or got it done just know that when my friend did it; it took him like 8 hours (he'd never done one on a celica, but had done them on american cars) so if your not familiar with it... not a good idea to do alone. I watched him do most, but i'm not the best to talk to about it.(plus i have a 2000GT) Some of the parts that i can remember that he took out to get to the clutch were the front driver's side tire, the axel on the same side, ....some other parts in there....and ALSO parts on top...the intake also had to be taken out just to have enough room to do the job. parts are cheap...just ask for a clutch kit at auto zone or whatever. around $150. another random tid bit that might help is make sure to tighten the engine mounts really good afterwards or else it will jump around in there when you turn it on and cut it off. buy gear oil before you start as well because you will need to put some in after the new clutch is in. i will need to put the car on a real lift... you need a lot of space underneath and on top to work. and most likely two people. well hope some of this helped.

SOURCE: Celica ignition removal

OK. Look directly under the steering column. You will see the silver ignition lock assembly, with a band that covers the round column housing. Holding the band onto the lock assembly, do you see something that resembles two "broken off" bolts? This is where the Dremel comes in handy. What you need to do is to score, scratch, chisel, anything, a slot that you can put a screwdriver into. The bolts are not tight, the heads break off to prevent people from removing them to rip off the ignition/steal the car. After getting the slot cut, use a screwdrive to rotate the bolts out. I would guess that a drill and an "easy-out" would work, but, I have never tried it. The Moto-Tool works great.
After you get the bolts out, the lock falls off of the column. Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYA. The graciousness of a FIxYa rating on my solution would be greatly appreciated.

Seem to be seal is wear off
already on the front cover
The way to open that
1. There is four screws at the back of
the headlights and unscrew them
2. Pull the headlight and dry it
by wiping or heat of the sun or
anything that can release the fog
3. Buy silicon and seal the headlight
gap with silicon and let it dry for a hour
This will help kept away fog
and condensation for sure

Bad headlight switch or relay, or shorted wire. I would check the relay first.

Hi, Contact your dealer and get instructions for reprogramming your remotes. When a security system loses power for an extended amount of time the programming for the remotes are lost.

Headlight switch toyota celica


The headlight control switch is on the steering column. To replace the switch remove the plastic trim covers over the steering tube to reveal the switch and connectors. Disconnect the battery negative cable before starting work, this is a must. Below is a picture of the switch.

I am having a problem trying to replace the low beam headlight bulbs( yes, both sides) for my 2002 Toyota Celica GT. The owners manual doesn't give clear directions for removing the headlight assembly....


Sorry, this is one of those you have to feel for the socket to remove it. did you check the fuse, it is rare that both low beam bulbs would go out at the same time. Don't remove the front bumper what ever you do, it is a nightmare and an accidental deployment of the airbag could occur.

Change head lite bulbs 2000 toyota GTA


The easiest way to change them is to remove the 3 bolts that hold the headlight in place, 1 is directly on top of the headlight, 1 can be seen thru the upper radiator support(of course be sure to remove the plastic engine compartment covers if they are installed), and the 3rd is hidden underneath the front bumper cover, to remove the front bumper cover, move aside the inner wheel well panel nearest the sidemarker lights, pull the bumper cover off slighty fron a plastic snap lock that lines up the bumper with the fender, you should see the bolt as soon as you pull the bumper cover. Each bolt is a 10mm patern so I recommend a small ratchet with extension, once you remove the bolts, the headlights come right off. You might have a rubber cover over where the headlight bulbs are located, simlpy unscrew it, or pull it off whatever your vehicle has, I believe the bulb type is H7, its a standard low-beam bulb, keep in mind the passengerside headlamp is attached to the windshield washer refill reservoir which snaps in and out of place. Install is reverse procedure, I hope this helps, and if you need, go to Newcelica.org for ANYTHING Celica related.
