  1. Corolla 12th Gen (Hatch 2019+/Sedan 2020+)
    Hello, since I’ve gotten my Corolla I’ve heard a very slight clunk on the interior when turning my wheel, it’s only heard on the interior and is completely silent on the outside. It’s not loud and is pretty gentle but whenever I was wiring a dash cam I noticed this grease on the steering column...
  2. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    I have a 2010 Corolla, and over the last weekend someone attempted to steal it. They weren't able to do so, but they did do a number on the upper steering column bracket in the process. I did some searching online, called a couple dealerships, and found two seemingly identical parts for the job...
  3. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    This is really embarrassing. I was so brave to tear out my 09 Camry hybrid dashboard and everything under it to replace a leaky evaporator core, put in a new condenser, and flush the AC lines. Yet when I tried to put it back together I got stumped on the proper reassembly of this little tilt...
  4. Highlander 2nd Generation (2008-2013)
    So I changed out my intermediate steering shaft a few weeks ago. Since then I’ve had a clicking noise under my dashboard. It doesn’t seem like it’s coming from the part I just changed but a little higher up from where that shaft connects. Can’t seem to figure it out. Thoughts? thanks. Don

    Hi there, I’m a new owner of an old Toyota Camry 2010 and I already love the car, but she does need some work. I’m having trouble identifying a part needed to hold the steering wheel up in position. I took it to a mechanic and they said I’d need to get a new “plate”. When I called the parts...
  6. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    I have a 2003 Camry XLE L4, and there is a grinding type noise when I turn the steering wheel at low to intermediate speeds, and when I go over a bump. I can also produce the noise when the car is parked and I bounce the driver's side up and down by placing my hands on the left fender. The...
  7. Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    Hi, I'm new to this forum and this is my first post. I am the proud owner of a 2015 Corolla S and I like the car very much. However I feel like the steering wheel and entire steering column, for that matter, come out of the dash at a bit of an angle. It feels and looks as though the left side is...
  8. Introduce Yourself Here
    Hi all, I am working on replacing my rack & pinion steering assembly in my 97 Avalon. I have everything disconnected EXCEPT the shaft from the gear assembly (gear assembly = pressure line & return line enter here) into the U-joint assembly. I got the bolt out but how do I separate the shaft from...
  9. Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    95 Toyota Corolla DX 1.8L Okay, here it is... I replaced my leaking steering rack, put all of the front suspension parts back on, put the steering wheel back on, refilled the power steering fluid, bled the lines and while bleeding the lines noticed that the steering wheel turns 1 1/2 turns to...
  10. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Steering wheel noise...see youtube video to hear it (SOLVED...see pictures) Hi, 2004 Camry XLE v6, 57k miles. For years or maybe forever(bought it on a lease return) I have heard a clinkity metal noise from the steering column when the wheel is dead center and going over bumps. Now the noise...
  11. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Does anyone know the screw size for the two screws that hold the bottom steering column cover in place? also, did Toyota make Gen 3 Camry's without hood struts, and just a prop-rod? My earlier forum recommends I visit a junk yard for the prop rod, but my car does not have the rod, just the air...
  12. Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    So here's a weird one for you guys! My g/f's '98 Avalon has been having key issues lately. We replaced the ignition switch over a year ago, and when we had the lock cylinder out, we noticed several of the tumblers were broken in half. However, it seemed to work OK, so we left it alone at the...
  13. Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    Anyone know how to replace the cruise control switch on a '97 Av? It feels like something is broken in the stem, because it flops around a bunch. Electrically intact, I think, as I can turn cruise on and off with the button in the tip, but I can't set the speed.

    My toyota dealer has not heard of this issue when I asked about it, so I wanted to see if anby of you have heard of it. On my gear shifter on the steering column, all the gear slots have moved down and have lost the ability to put it in 1st. If I try to put it in park, I actually have to push it...
