  1. Highlander 2nd Generation (2008-2013)
    While removing the alternator, a small wire that was not visible at the time snapped. It was a tiny black wire that split off the from the bundle going to the alternator clip, and had some silver heat shielding further up from the breaking point. Now the car tries to start but won’t turn over. I...
  2. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    Does anyone know the torque specs for the front and rear struts? If this question has been answered or they are listed somewhere, please let me know. Thanks!
  3. Highlander 2nd Gen - Hybrid (XU40/2008-2013)
    New guy here. I searched as thoroughly as I could before posting. In prepping to replace a stuck-open thermostat on my wife's 09 HH, I cannot figure out where the stinking thing is! I've watched a couple of videos of people doing it - different car, same engine, but the location seems to be...
  4. Highlander 2nd Generation (2008-2013)
    Hi all, just picked up an 09 Highlander Hybrid Limited with 100K for $9500 via a private sale. Needed a secondary family vehicle, and in this market, the deal was too good to pass up. It's in spectacular condition too. So what should I be aware of? I can't tell if the timing belt was replaced...
  5. Highlander 2nd Generation (2008-2013)
    Hi everyone. Looking for some pointer on how to fix this issue. 2009 Highlander V6 111000 miles Recently changed the front struts (KYB Quick Struts), rear is still on original factory struts and brand new tires all around. Ever-since then the car has been very unstable on highway. I have to...
  6. Venza Gen1 (2009-2016)
    Hi! I don't have a power liftgate on my 09 Venza. It does have a locking mechanism once the door is basically closed, but you have to manually lift and close. I came out to a dead battery yesterday and once I charged it back up, I found the latch is engaged but apparently the locking mechanism...
  7. RAV4 3rd Generation (2006-2012)
    Our 2009 RAV4 front wheel drive has a roaring noise in the front end at speed that sounds like a wheel bearing failing as the pitch of the noise is directly proportional to the speed of the truck. I have put a stethoscope on the bearing housings while the vehicle was jacked and the wheels were...
  8. Highlander 2nd Gen - Hybrid (XU40/2008-2013)
    Hello all, new forum member posting to get some info! I might have an opportunity to pick up a 2009 hybrid sport with about 190,000 miles for maybe $5000. Currently drive a 2012 ford fusion with 80k miles but with 2 kids it's a tight fit in the back, been thinking about a bigger car and maybe...

    My XRS took a shit on May of this year. Needless to say, I'm still in mourning. I had just installed Megan coilovers am few months before the big breakdown and so far had only installed a lightweight flywheel with the TRD clutch, as well as the Weapon-R Cold Air Intake...... Sigh... Lasted...
  12. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Hello guys, I'm having this consistent issue with turning over my engine in the arvo, where the engine "will" turn-over but will hesitate or rumble before it gets started, it's very noticeable and it will happen when I drive my car... leave it for more than an hour and start-it up. - If I start...
  13. RAV4 3rd Generation (2006-2012)
    09 Rav. Manual HVAC selector, not push-button on the dash Dash selector works - it manually rotates as it should and the belt behind the dash appears intact. Problem is the gear that it turns is broken. Not sure if you can see in the pic below, but of the 3 tabs that retain it to the side of...
  14. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    So my 2009 Camry vibrates if I do 70 and over. At 65 and below it's fine. The vibrations come in waves, about every 4 seconds and last for about 4-5 seconds until fading and then re-emerging shortly after, and so on. I rebalanced my wheels and did alignment (just to be sure), everything is...

    Hello guys like I said I'm new to the forums. And looking at a '09 Matrix. Any serious with this year model? Thx
  16. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Hi all, I've tried to find an answer to this on multiple forums and websites but I am having trouble. I have a 2009 Camry SE w/ the premium JBL sound system. The specifications list that it is an 8 speaker sound system, however, I can only find 6 (2x Dash/Windshield, 2x Front doors, 2x Rear...

    greetings: trying to ID these bolts shipped to me in error. I ordered 1/2" screws for engine splash shield and received these instead - not worth shipping cost to return but wondering what they fit? anyone recognize? Thank you! :nerd: Solved mystery - they are manifold bolts for 1ZZ & 2ZZ...
  18. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    HI all. I checked and couldn't find any DIY threads with steps or info or other experiences. (See edit at the bottom of this post) Can anyone provide? I have a 2009 Camry which has the well known very bad vibration at idle when in drive at a light. My Ultragauge shows the RPM are very low when...
  19. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    so i need to replace two center dashboard air vents. actually all i really need are the grills that adjust (up, down, left, right), but i doubt they sell those separately. anyway, i can't find the damn part numbers so i can look up the parts. i've searched a few sites and the best i get is the...
  20. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    We noticed that the driver side floorboard was soggy, so we removed the floor mat, propped the carpet up, and drained about an inch of water using the rubber plug. Well, it was left with the plug in and the carpet propped up over the weekend and, this morning, there's over an inch of water...
