SOURCE: Moisture in headlight assembly, 2004 toyota seinna

Once the factory seal is leaking moisture, it can be hard to dry and reseal. You can try a hir dryer, and then look for a seam to lay silicone on, but the recommended fix is to replace the whole headlight assembly. The lens is not removable like on older lamps. The pieces are molded, and then epoxied together. Hard to split apart and get back together without damaging. Try a salvage yard.

SOURCE: I have moisture inside my

{: ) Some exterior lamps, such as cornering, turn signal, backup, headlamps or tail lamps may exhibit very small droplets of water, a fine mist or white fog (condensation) on the inside of the lamp lens. This may be more noticeable on lamps with "multi-lens" designs and may be normal during certain weather conditions. Condensation occurs when the air inside the lamp assembly, through atmospheric changes, reaches the "dew point". When this takes place, the moisture in the air within the lamp assembly condenses, creating a fine mist or white fog on the inside surface of the lamp lens.
Most exterior lamps on General Motors vehicles use a vented design and feature a replaceable bulb assembly. They are designed to remove any accumulated moisture vapor by expelling it through a vent system. The vent system operates at all times, however, it is most effective when the lamps are ON or when the vehicle is in motion. Depending on the size, shape and location of the lamp on the vehicle, and the atmospheric conditions occurring, the amount of time required to clear the lamp may vary from 2 to 6 hours.
Completely sealed headlamp assemblies (sealed beams) are still used on a limited number of models being manufactured today. These lamps require the replacement of the complete lamp assembly if a bulb filament burns out.

If moisture or droplets appear after being exposed to rain or washing, you can try putting some weather seals on the edges where you think the seal is poor. Check also the headlamp caps. In any case, if the moisture doesn't clear no matter what drying approaches, better replace the assembly.
The bulbs won't cause the moisture, but it is possible that an accumulated moisture on the bulb itself can disable it, although rare.

SOURCE: Daytime Running Lights Inoperative 2002 Toyota Camry

[Information] For a 2002 Toyota Camry, the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) operate utilizing the High Beams (inner Lamps closer to the center of the vehicle front) at a reduced power.

[The troubleshooting process:] Review the Owner's Manual and ensure the test configuration matches the following criteria:
1. According to the 2002 Toyota Camry Owner's Manual (Check your Owners Manual):
"The DRL system will make your headlights come on at a reduced brightness when:
The light switch s in the "DRL" position.
The ignition is on with the engine running.
The headlight switch is off.
The parking brake is released."


2. Set the Test Conditions according to Step 1 above.

3. Check the headlight bulbs to ensure they are not burned out. If one burns out, there is a fair chance that the other would have burned out at the same time. Replace as necessary. In this case, if the high beams operate, the DRLs should also operate.
4. Test the system, ensuring the step 1 conditions are set. (Engine running, Multi-function Switch on Turn Signals in "DRL" position, headlight switch off (repeating what the manual says -- it should be obvious that in the "DRL" position, the headlight switch should be off / do not have the switch positioned to "High Beam"), and the Parking Brake "off").
5. If DRL lights do not work, check the engine compartment Fuse and Relay Box. there is a 5 Amp DRL fuse -- replace it with the spare. Test (step 4).
6. If it does not work, swap around or replace relays -- there are three (3). Any one of them could be bad (stuck or burned out). Test (step 4).
7. Other less likely possible issues could be that the Multi-function Switch is broken or a connection / wire is broken. [Beyond the scope of this process.]


My problem was that the test configuration did not have the engine running and parking brake off - Step 1. Problem solved with much thought, repetitive tests on the vehicle and going back to the basics -- what does the Owner's Manual say and where are the applicable fuses and relays located?

High beam headlights not working


Hello chinson. When the highbeams are not working, the problem is usually the switch. Since this is a 2008, your warranty will probably be in play. Contact your Toyota dealer before you do a self-repair. Joe

Dear SIr, Please advice on how to change the air filter under the hood, what parts should be disassembled, will be better you'll explain it with some pictures attached. Regards, Maxat


How to Replace an AirConditioner Filter on a 2002 ToyotaAvalon

The air conditioner filter onthe 2002 Toyota Avalon is more commonly referred to as the cabin air filter.The filter does more than just regulate the flow of air: It also filters outpollen, dust, exhaust fumes and air pollution. Because it directly affects thelevel and quality of air coming into the passenger cab through the interior airvents, it can compromise the performance of the air conditioning, as well asthat of the heating system, if not changed at regular intervals.

1. Openthe Avalon's passenger's side door. 2. Open the glove box and removeits contents. 3. Locate the stop screw on the right side ofthe glove box, and remove it with the Phillips-head screwdriver while bracingthe bottom of the glove box. 4. Gently swing the glove box downward andlet it hang upside-down towards the passenger's side floorboard. 5. Locate the white filter frame, now visiblefrom behind the original glove box's position. 6. Push the tabs at each end of the filterframe inward to unlock it, then pull the tray and filter assembly out of thecabin air filter housing. 7. Remove the oldfilter from the tray, then install the new one, making sure to tuck the ends ofthe replacement filter under the tabs on the left and right sides of the tray. 8. Reinsert the trayand filter assembly into the filter housing; push it until the tabsautomatically lock the door of the tray into place. 9. Reassemble theglove box by lifting it up, replacing the stop screw and then returning itscontents before closing it.

I had moistured on my 2004 sienna headlight, How can i removed the moistured?


I fixed this problem on my 2004 Sienna. The moisture seems to come in from the top of the headlamp assembly. I generously applied Permatex Super Clear VINYL SEALANT to the seam at the top of the assembly after drying out the moisture by remvoing the bulbs. There are vent at the bottom of the assembly which should be open; there's a liitle foam plug that let's air in so the assembly is not intended to be airtight. There has been no moisture problem for about a year.
