SOURCE: How d you replace the starter on a 2005 Scion xb?

There are two bolts, one is at the top exactly opposite of the first one you took out. You will not be able to see it, but feel around the head of the starter where it goes into the block and you will feel where it goes.

Can I adjust slipping clutch on 2006 Scion XB?

You can't adjust a slippage on a clutch system. Probably need a new clutch assembly. The system is hydraulically driven and doesn't need adjustment.

How many Speed sensors are in a 2005 scion xb

As far as i know, thee is only one speed sensor. It is located on your transmission. It is on the right side of you engine, underneath the air cleaner. Just a sensor, and easy to replace. Should take you less then an hour. There also might be one on you ABS system, but i am not aware of it on a Scion.

I did the same, replaced revolution sensor, worked better for a day then same issue. Needs a new prndl or neutral safety switch, you may have to re replace revolution sensor. Will be under factory warranty from dealership, or hopefully company you bought it from. I'm having exact same issue right now. Good luck!

Just replaced clutch for my son's Toyotal month later the clutch pedal is staying down and won't come back up

Hi, the likely problem is air in the hydraulic clutch line. This happens when there is a leak in the system that draws down fluid in the reservoir until air is drawn in. You must repair the leak and bleed the system to restore pedal pressure. The leak is usually in the slave cylinder at the transmission, but may also occur in the master cylinder above the pedal. If you can find your leak, I can provide repair instructions--just let me know.

Driver's side door lock not responding to keyless remote or to interior switch - 2004 Scion xB

I had that issue with my scion xb. When I installed my audio system somehow the vibrations loosened the button wires clip . I removed the door panel and clicked it back in, also it could be a dead solenoid or disconnected door wire that goes from the 'noid to the door lock pin.

How do I install alt. belt on 2005 scion xb?

I just looked at my '04 xB. It looks very straight forward.
loosen the bolt that holds the alternator to the bracket.
carefully slide the alt to the bottom. (Also be aware of the plug and wires on the alt.They should never hold the weight of the alternator. You dont want them breaking prematurely.)
Pull the belt off, remove the belt from the crank shaft pulley.

Do the reverse, and you will have replaced the belt.

Make sure to check the belt in about a week or so.
New belts will stretch over time. Make sure you keep the tension tight enough to work correctly, but not so tight that the alernator shaft is warped.
I usually place the new belt on both pulleys and give a good "medium" pull on the alt while tightening. Find the middle of the belt and squeeze them together, depending on the type and length of the belt, there should be about 1/4" of flex on both sides.

Changing clutch in 05 Scion xB

For $20 US you can access the Chilton service manual here:

I personally prefer hard-copy and have either Haynes or Chilton for each of our vehicles. One or the other (probably Chilton - Haynes doesn't yet list the Scion line) will be found in just about any auto parts store and cost between ~$17-$30 US. The two lines are owned both by Chilton and I wouldn't be without one or the other. They are both based on a complete rebuild and have info on anything you can do at home and more.
