if it doesn't have a dipstick there should be a plug located on the tranny that you can take out if the fluid flows out of it then it should be full.

the spring inside the handle or a rivet breaks, You can't buy these parts seperately so you will have to get a new handle for it

I have this same problem, and I removed the interior door fascia to examine the cause.
As mentioned, the moving, plastic part of the door handle has a recess that houses the return spring. Under stress (under too little stress, if you ask me), part of that plastic that surrounds the spring ruptures (tears), and the spring can no longer exert sufficient force to get the handle to retract flush against the car.
There is no way to fic that plastic part--you have to replace the entire handle. Searching for "Toyota Echo Door Handle" will find you a number of on-line sites that sell BLACK handles for under $7.00! The dealer wants something like $50-$70 for an OEM part, with the right color.
I have the service manual, and replacing these things is a *****! You have to use a TORX bit to remove the actual latch in the door, to get it out of the way.
There isn't actually any fixed linkage between the handle and the interior latch mechanism. When you pull the handle up enough, a plastic cam on the handle strikes a metal lever within the car door, forcing the latch to release the steel hoop. So once you can ACCESS the handle, swapping it out looks straightforward. The problem is, accessing it is a pain. Make sure you have a magnetic grabber handy for the hardware!
I have yet to find a cheap source for SILVER handles on the Internet (none of the Internet Junkyards have responded).

did you try another h/L bulb?

2001 Toyota Echo | Answered on Jan 04, 2018 | 44 views

Brother Mark, I know just what you mean. What happened is that the wire on the end of the cable has pulled out of the hole on the lever at the control because the cable has dried inside the housing and needs lubrication. Near impossible to do without taking it out, then mas as well replace the cable. Most likely the lever on the control valve that shuts the water line off at the firewall has stiffened up and caused you to force it and pulled the cable out at the valve in front of you on the firewall under hood. I don't know pricing on this stuff because I always do my own work. I build my vehicles, not buy them. Either way, it's the water control valve and cable that need attention. I just open the valve with pliers under the hood for winter if I don't feel like changing it right away. the other stuff on the control panel works fine.
