How do you remove lens cover to change out the light bulb in the interior dome light in a 2003 Highlander.

Look very closely at the lens cover, you will see two small slots at the edge of the lens, use a small screwdriver and pry in those slots to pop the lens cover off.

Where is the starter for a 2003 toyota corolla located? Thanks!

Standing in front of your Corolla with the hood open ,the starter is located right below the intake manifold(curvy tube like looking ) This is in the center of the engine.
A plastic water guard underneath the car prevents you from seeing the starter from below.
That water shield will need to be removed to access the starter.

Highlander 2004: back door is locked and does not open with either the key or control

Sounds like your exterior handle is stuck in up position. If so put a hook tool up in it and attempt to pull it down. If you find that it is not, then you will need to remove the interior trim panel to gain access to the latch and linkages.

2003 Highlander 6 cyl. 109,000 Miles Excellent Care and Condition Sometimes, not always, when I am slowing down and about ready to stop I hear a clunk sound from underneath, like from the transmission....

after 100,000 miles you have wear in the transmission and rear end gears and bearings, it is not normal but it is not a real problem that can cause a breakdown, to fix this you could spend upwards of $3000.00, so in my opinion just live with it.
