Re: Replacing driver side door
If you take the hinge pins out of both doors and use a jack to hold the door in place its not too bad. just slide the door up to the car and slide in the pins. But just remember to replace the door bushings before you do because it saves you the trouble before hand. if you have electric windows you probably need to take door panel off and unplug them first.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Well, that depends, Usually it is your relay in the fuse panel located just inside the driver-side door that needs replacing. (Open the door, look at the side of the dashboard, pull cover off panel, flasher relay is marked as such.) However, there may be a more complicated problem that requires pulling the turn signal handle out of the column. This requires being a very flexible person because the screws are in the underside. I recommend checking the relay first. If it is more complex, check UTube videos for Ford truck turn signal problems.
It s probable the window switch, especially on driver's side because its the one that's used the most. Switch replace involves removing door card and minor mechanics under it. U-tube has a video on the subject, if you're not up to repair, contact local repair shop or dealer.
I would Google to begin with the year and model with "replace" and also look on You Tube or one of the many Toyota forums to see if video or detailed instructions exist from someone who has already done this--recently had a bad hinge pin on door of a vehicle--got everything from remove entire door, replace entire hinge to someone with step by step instructions with photos--20 min job and 2 4 dollar parts.
You can save time and mistakes if you research enough. Key words are essential when you do this.
the car is 12, put a whole new regulator in it, not just a motor. these can be had at parts stores and ebay for less than a hundred bucks. pay an autoglass shop to put it in, much easier when you have the knowledge, tools, and fasteners at hand. if you want to skin your knuckles and spend a day driving around to find the fasteners there are videos of folks replacing these on www.youtube.com. once you have done one yourself you will gladly pay someone 50 bucks to do it the next time.
Depends. If it is an aftermarket alarm that didn't come with the car those are easily removed by undoing the wiring for the alarm box usually underneath the steering column. If you're not comfortable with wiring issues, a local shop should be able to do it for around 70 dollars, one hour labor. Factory alarms are different. There are door switches that regularly go bad for your car that can usually be determined if when all your doors are closed the dome light stays on or comes on. There should also be an indicator on the instrument cluster. Usually it's the driver's door(most used) that goes bad. If this malfunctions while the vehicle alarm has been set the antitheft system will think someone opened the door without unlocking it. Replacing these switches usually require removal of the door latch on the inside of the door panel. Sometimes spraying lubricant through the keyhole will help these switches work... for a while. And if all else fails, you can always unplug the horn... Good luck!
just remove the door panel its pretty simple once you are in door panel you will see the motor.the door panel is held on by either screws or plastic push ins..there little plastiv pins that expand after they are in hole
I had the same problem - driver side fine, passenger side front not working/slow or the back seat. You need to replace the window motor on the passenger side. Yes, there are two motors. It's pretty simple if you are handy with some tools. The hardest part is getting the 4 mounts that hold the window motor to the door off. The are factory riveted to the door, so I had to grind the outsides off and tap them out. Just watch the spring lever that holds the window bar for going up and down. I didn't pay attention and it snapped back - nearly broke my thumb.
