You need to remove the stabilizer bar and the hangers in the sub frame.Once you have the sway bar completely off you can remove the old bushings and then spray the bar with penetrating oil and put the new bushings in their place,where the old ones bolt everything and you're done.

Are you in a state where it gets pretty cold in winter?You may have a component in the belt system about to seize up.That happened to me when I lived in NY.I heard a squeak for a while,then 1 day the belt broke.I replaced it,drove about 10 miles and it broke again.My a/ccompressor had seized.You may just need a belt but if you are going to self-repair,draw a diagram of the belt loops and after you take off the belt,turn all components and they should turn slightly freely,yet still kind of difficult,sorry it is hard to explain though.Inspect your belt for many small,slightly widening cracks,or larger cracks,or fraying on the edges.You will not be able to turn the engine belt drive.Good luck!

No there is a brake switch to turn on the brake lights when you step on the brake pedal. It is located near the rake pedal under the dash. It has more then likely failed.

See if spraying some silicone or penetratng oil on belts,while running, quiets the noise. They may have dryed out from sitting. If it is an engine noise, run vehicle till hot,15 to 20 minutes,then change oil & filter again. You may have moisture or rust built up or a bad bypass valve in oil filter.

Toyota recommends 5W-30 and if you look closely you should see it printed on the oil filler cap itself. I have been changing my own oil like over 25 years and equally important if you want to keep your Toyota Echo engine in good running condition is hidden under a silver cowl that has like 10mm bolts you need to unfasten this metal cover on order to get a oil filter wrench on the actual oil filter. By the way, hopefully you are replacing it with a genuine Toyota oil filter as they are relatively inexpensive like $3 to $5 and removal counterclockwise is probably the most difficult part of an oil change, besides dumping the dirty oil into a container and cleanup to me is the filthiest part- but hey you saved like at least $10 or more by Doing It Yourself...

Hope the Above Info Helps!

Try replacing the spark plug wires if you did not change them when you did the plugs. It is very important that you pull one and only one spark plug wire at a time to keep them in the correct order or your car will misfire. You should change your fuel filter every 30k miles and they are usually about $20. Try the wires first and see what happens.

The EVAP cannister is part of the emissions system. Excess exhaust runs thru it-purge flow is when it is released. Check all the vacuum lines going to it. I don't you will find a parts listing for a purge flow valve or vent or solenoid. Your light will probably come on again shortly.

Lugs?. I guess are the wheel studs(Im in australia)
First see if toyota sells the lugs separately, if yes you can use a punch to remove the last broken bit, the new ones are installed by packing with washers and using the wheel nut to pull them back into place.
If you cant buy lugs separately, you will need a new hub from the dismantlers

BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL!! pull top of door out with your fingers and wedge something in the gap. doesnt have to be a huge gap just enough to get a hanger or whatever you choose to use. if it has lock button you can directly push with hanger or whatever. if no button you can bend a hook on hanger and snag door lock and pull open. good luck!! BE CAREFUL, DO NOT PULL DOOR TO FAR. JUST ENOUGH AS NEEDED. let me know how it goes!!!
