Question about Toyota Corolla

How do I replace a 2010 Toyota Corolla air filter? Is it as easy as releasing the housing clips, pull the old one out, clean the housing with a rag, and put the new one in, and reclip the housing? Or, is there a sinister sensor that I have to disable first?

Just open the housing, clean it out if you like with a damp rag and reinstall the new one. If you have to disconnect anything to more easily get into the housing, make sure the ignition is off and everything is reconnected before you start the car.

My 2001 toyota Corolla will run better as i let off the accelerator going up hill or on hard accelaration,fuel filter???

Could be. Dirty filters will usually cut out at higher speeds. Like not go past 60 MPH's with out chugging/missing out. No volume. If you never have replaced it I would. But I would also pull the throttle body, then remove the idle air control motor(IAC) and clean both of them. Dirty IAC's are a problem with them. The vane inside the IAC should not stick. Brake clean and a paper clip gets the clean.

2010 Toyota corolla isn't blowing any air heat or defrost. The switch won't turn anything on. There is a constant air flowing very very lightly thru vent and u can hear fan running but switch cobtrols...

Hi, the switch has a cable connected to it, it has definitely come loose from the plastic housing that controls the air flow,suggest open out the panel and reconnect the cable.

Trying to change my air filter (engine - not cabin) on 2009 Toyota Highlander with no hep form the manual Can you advise?

It is pretty simple. There are either screws or clips (I'm not sure which, as the manual doesn't say) holding one end of the air cleaner cap assembly. Just un-fasten the screws or clips and lift the cap assembly up and out of the hooks on the other end. The air tube to the intake manifold will still be connected and my make this a little difficult to do. If so, loosen the clamps on the air tube to make it easier. After replacing the filter element, make sure the cap assembly is fitted and secured properly and all clamps are tight. (See picture)

How do I replace headlight bulb for my toyota corolla 1998?

Open up the hood, and go in behind the fixture where the light is located. Grasp the headlamp electrical connector socket (with wires coming out of it) and disconnect it by pulling straight back. Pull off the black, soft rubber protective housing that surrounds the back of the headlamp housing. You will then see a spring clip securing the bulb. Push the clip in and up on an angle and it will release the bulb. Never touch the new bulb with your bare fingers, as the skin-oil you leave will greatly shorten the bulb's life. Place the new bulb assembly into the housing, push the clip in and up again, but in the opposite direction of the first angle to release it and it will lock. Then replace the black rubber housing-cover, plug the electrical connector back in, and you're in business.
