Thumbs up READ FIRST -- Official 5th/6th Gen Camry and 2nd Gen Solara DIY and Veh Info Sticky!

Here is a sticky with links to the various DIY projects we have going here. They’re specified as being Gen 5 Camry/Gen 2 Solara related, Gen 6 Camry/Gen 2 Solara related, Gen 5 Camry, Gen 6 Camry, or general. Best of luck with your DIYs! Thank you to all the creators of these DIYs...it is because of you that these are a possibility! And remember, we assume no responsibility for your mistakes. Enjoy! -- Corey

It would be a good idea for any person doing DIY work to purchase a Haynes or Chilton manual that will answer most any repair question. If you have something you think should be added to this sticky, or if you see something that is in error, please send a PM with the link/information to any of the Camry section Moderators. Thank you, and please check back occasionally for updates. -- TrailDust

This is an update notice to all Gen 5 & 6 owners.

This entire sticky section has been reorganized and edited to remove redundancy, dead links, and unclog the section. If you find errors with any of the links or information, or if you have suggestions to add more information, please PM me or one of the other Camry moderators with the details and relevant link.

Nearly all of the stickies that were listed previously have been moved into this thread for their relevant section (Suspension, wheels, misc., etc.)

Thanks!
