Re-attaching the pull ******** the drivers door


Normally there are also other screws hidden behind chrome trims that you prise off with a plastic screwdriver. There are always plastic poppers all round the edges of the panel, use 2 screwdrivers slid in (one on each side of each popper) to lever the panel away from the door so that the popper comes out of the door.

How do I change rear wiper motor?


Step 1: Remove wiper arm.

Pull back the little plastic cover to gain access to the retaining nut. Loosen the nut until the threads are flush with the nut, and while pulling on the wiper arm give the nut a couple light taps with a hammer. Once the arm moves remove the nut and the arm.

Step 2: Remove the plastic door trim.

Remove the two screws holding the lift gate "easy reach strap". Carefully pry the plastic skin and pop the clips out. I started at the latch and worked out. Once all of the clips are loose sit the rear of the truck and pull the door toward you. The plastic slides over a bulge where the rear windows handle and door meet. Lift up and pull out here on the plastic and the whole thing should come off.

Step 3: Remove the weather barrier.

Carefully peel back the weather barrier making sure not to rip it. You'll only need to pull it back about 1/2 way to access the motor. I went right to left.

Step 4: Unplug the motor.

There is a single clip plug. Just unplug it.

Step 5: Remove the motor in its mount.

Remove 3 bolts holding the motor mount to the door. They are brass colored and mount to rubber flanges.

Step 6: Remove the motor from the mount.

There are 2 bolts holding the motor to the mount. Remove them and you now have the bad motor completely out. Take it to the parts store so you can save yourself a trip getting the core charge back.

Step 7: Re-assemble.

Just work backwards from step 6. The weather barrier should go back on without any problem, but if it lost its stick you could use rubber cement to reattach it. When you reinstall the plastic skin start with the part that has to go over the "handle bulge". Then just line it up and tap it back into the clips.

Replace fuel filter


For safety, remove relay # 8 in the fuse box, and disconnect battery. Take the little plastic cap off the pressure relief valve at the filter. Push the pin up to relief the pressure. Use a pair of pliers to remove the clips at both hoses, some gas will come ou,t, taking note which hose goes to which fitting, because the filter is directional. Remove the plastic strap holding the filter and remove. Chances are the plastic strap might be broken, if not, you're lucky. If so, use a zip tie to hold in place.

Rear windshield wiper connection


You need to open the rear glass from the rear hatch. Look inside where the glass latches to the rear hatch. There is a Phillips head screw that connects the rear inner plastic panel to the rear hatch, remove this screw. Now, in the strap that you use to pull the rear hatch down, there is a torques head screw, that holds this strap to the rear hatch, you need to remove this screw.
Start at one of the outer corners of the inner plastic panel and pull the panel away from the hatch. You will see the upper wiper motor in the right hand corner of the hatch. ther is one connector that is easy to see, you have to pull up on a plastic clip to remove this connector. Look for the rubber hose for the windshield washer fluid, it may be cracked or fallen off the plastic nozzle to the outside of the rear door.

Please the hose back on or replace the hose if it's cracked or damaged by the wiper motor. To install just follow the procedure in revers.
Good luck and hope i made some sense. Keep me posted, be glad to help out.

Electrical problem with the dash.


This wiring problem can be much more costly, and time consuming, than you want to take on.
Professional mechanics cringe, when a wiring problem of this magnitude comes their way!

It's probably a bad ground for the instrument cluster.
The instrument cluster housing is plastic. There is a flat, thin, 2 to 3 inch wide, piece of plastic that is the wiring harness for this instrument cluster.
In this flat piece of plastic, are thin flat copper strips. These are like wires, to conduct the electricity to the gauges, lights, and the rest of the instrumentation.

Since the plastic instrument cluster is not metal, and therefore it can't be used as a Ground source, the flat piece of plastic I mentioned above, has a Ground wire to it. May be more than one.

This ground wire/s could have corrosion on the terminal end, where it attaches to the truck body.
Bad ground, everything goes haywire. The ground wires, might loose on the terminals used for the flat piece of plastic.

Another source of a bad ground problem overlooked, is that the cab of a truck receives it's,
Main ground from the engine.

There should be Two ground straps, coming from the firewall over to the engine. Sometimes, when the upper part of an engine, or the engine is replaced, the mechanic neglects to reinstall these ground straps.

Sometimes just one ground strap is reinstalled, and this is No good!
Also both terminal ends of these ground straps are a good source for corrosion to develop.
Corrosion makes a bad contact.

I myself would take the truck back.

I have a 2004 Toyota Sienna mini van. I would like to know how to replace the license plate bulb?


You have to remove the rear door inside panel.First thing is to remove the top and side interior trim panels,they just pop out by prying them away after they are out the metal retaining clips sometimes stay in the door,pull them out and put them on the plastic panel before reinstalling.Then the strap that you use to close it has a cover on it that you have to push up to get off then remove the 10 mm bolt that holds the strap.Then pry the panel away from the door I think that the bottom has two hooks on it which means that the top needs come off first so you can lift the panel hooks out of the slots.Once the panel is off you will see the bulbs they twist out and you have to pull the bulbs out.Good luck
