Question about Toyota Solara

1 Answer

Have had a cupping issue on the inside rear tires since I bought my 2004 Solara SLE new. Dealer says I have not rotated the tires frequently. That just delays the real issue. I am told struts and bushings are the two reasons for this occurrence. I have just replaced the tires and had an alignment. I want to resolve this issue. Where would you start?

The dealer is right.Struts and bushings can have an effect on tires.Struts keep the tires in contact with the road,when the struts wear out,the tires start to bounce,but you may not notice it.I would start by having the struts checked and replace if need be.

You didn't mention if you ever rotated the tires. I suggest you get them re-balanced and put the fronts on the rear. I recommend putting them front to back without crossing them. There's been an argument about that for many years and I still believe that crossing will cause belts to shift inside the tire and that can cause it to fail if you reverse the rolling rotation, especially if no rotation has been done for a long time. (rotate about once a year) It may also be a good idea to replace your front shock absorbers. Unless you live somewhere it gets very hot, I'd also run your tire pressure at 35psi. If you normally run it lower, it may feel a bit hard at first but it's easy to get used to and the tires will last longer.

On dash board has a horse shape signal with an ! in the u shape


that would be your low tire light, check the tire pressures and set them to whatever it says in the drivers door jamb, it will tell you the factory psi settings there. if you had the tires rotated recently that might cause the light to come on untill the tire positions are learned by the cards module. if all else fails a dealer is pretty much the only place that can diagnose tire pressure monitor problems

Once the alignment is good just keep rotating at least every 6,000 miles. Aggressive tread designs on these cars have to be pampered or you will get the feathering

2004 Toyota Solara Healight adjustment


Look at the back side of the headlamp assembly. There are a couple of ears that stick out, right above a small silver toothed wheel. Using a suitably long phillips screwdriver, insert the driver down into the 2 small ears, and then the screwdriver should contact the small toothed wheel. The ears provide the proper support for the screwdriver to mesh with the toothed gear. Spin the screwdriver, and the toothed gear should spin, also. Rotate the driver in whatever direction to adjust the lamp beam. This will gibe you what you need. Hope this helps; any questions; please repost.
