Sorry - my bad - this was for the 2003 and not the 1996

Not sure about the gen 5 but the OP asked about the 1996, which is the car I had. The glove box drops open and with a little pressure on the sides of the box it opens a little more- enough to reach behind and remove the filter - no dremel or damage required. Try it - you'll see.

My mistake - this happened on my 2003, and not on the 1996

Added Gen 1 Solara info to the sticky for pretty much all sections I have worked on (which doesn't included suspension).

Also I updated as follows:

Updated Purolator Filter line to include Purolator Boss and current model names/numbers.

Updated Mobil 1 oil section to include Mobil 1 Emission System Performance and Annual Protection oils

Added a note concerning the "A" and "T" (i.e. IFR6A11 and IFR6T11) designations present on some NGK Laser Iridium Plugs.

My Toyota List:

1982 Corolla SR-5 (Shell Right Now)
1988 Cressida 5MGE A/T
2005 Corolla CE 1ZZFE M/T
2005 Sequoia Limited 2UZFE A/T
2008 LS460 SWB RWD 1URFSE A/T

No way to easily "get behind" the glove box to get to any cabin filter in my Georgetown, KY 1996 Camry LE 5SFE. Only the door swings down not the whole glove box. The box is truly that - 3 sides and top and bottom are one piece.

That reminds me, I went and checked my gen4 for a glove box cabin air filter. Nope, nada, el zilcho.

Wix oil filters have new part numbers. The new part number for the 2AZFE filter is 57145, or 57145XP for the XP version.

The maintenance thread already reflects that? Was there a reason you mentioned it??

with regard to the cabin air filter behind the gove box...

I am so sorry - I had a 1996 and now have a 2003. I was mistaken - the 2003 has the filter behind the glove box and it just drops forward.

Thumbs up Awesome thread!

hardtopte72,

I already use fully-synthetic motor oil (Mobil 1, Castrol, Penzoil).

Synthetic ATF & transaxle fluid sound like they may offer additional advantages over the factory fill Dex3. Is that correct?

However, I ran accross this:

- Does Toyota offer a fully-synthetic ATF that's recommended for the gen4 2.2L AT?
- Has Toyota approved the use of any fully-synthetic ATF for our car?

Thanks!
