Question about 2001 Toyota Yaris
Hi ,have a broken plastic dipstick which i can,t remove if i pushed it down into the sump to make room for a new one ,will the old dipstick do any damage ?
It's small and plastic and skinny so it's not going to damage anything if it does go into sump. However try this: Spray some cleaner down onto broken dipstick to get rid of any dirt and oil. Get a knitting needle or something plastic that will fit down tube. Cut end off flat. Put some super glue on end of needle and push down tube till you feel it touch broken dipstick. WAIT till glue goes off (about a minute). Very gently pull up and hopefully broken part will stay stuck to needle. Good Luck!

Do Not do that!! Anything foreign in the sump is a really bad idea.It way make its way to the oil pickup screen and partially block the flow of oil.This has the potential to damage your engine. At the bottom of the dipstick tube is usually a small bolt that attaches the tube to the side of the engine.I would remove this and see if I can fish it out then.Failing this you will have to drop the oil pan and get it that way.I know this may seem like a trivial thing but the potential is there to do a lot of damage.
If bits of plastic get past the screen and get into your engine any cost to get the stick out will seem very minor. good luck

have someone pump the pedal and hold it, then you work from the right rear, left rear, right front, left front, while the person pumps and holds several times at each wheel.

There is two bolts that hold the window slider thing in place. One just below one of the door handle nuts inside the door and the other is on the outside of the door (on the inside of the car). Once these are removed it enables you to move that mech out of the way to get to the other bolt.
I undone the 3 latch screws to give me a bit more movement in the rod that connects to the handle too.
This should give you enough room to get to that other nut and clip the rod into the handle once installed.
Once handle is installed simply just slide the window mech back up into position and bolt back in.
