  1. Avalon 3rd Generation (2005-2012)
    Hello Everyone, (Toyota Avalon/2008/limited edition) I have had a history with bad alignment +wheels. after fixing all the tie rods (inner-outer) and getting an good alignment done, the problem sorta disappeared. Yet now another problem that is bothering me, which is a loose power steering...
  2. 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
  3. Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    Hello. I'm having this issue on my 2014 toyota corolla LE with 91,000 miles on it. The problem is when i turn the wheel it turns significantly more to the left than it does to the right. I'm not talking about an alignment issue. It drives in a perfect line. I'm talking about if I rotate the...
  4. Tacoma 1st Generation (1995.5–2004)
    Hi I have a 99 Tacoma Prerunner V6, just changed the rack and pinion, upper and lower ball joints, and outer tie rods. And mounted 4 new tires. After all that the steering is way too easy to turn and the truck feels unstable at higher speeds. I've quadruple-checked everything to make its not...
  5. Camry 6th Gen - Hybrid (2007-2011)
    The electric power steering on my Camry Hybrid 2007 loses its powers. The steering becomes stiff intermittently and randomly, and then goes back to normal. Likely there is a problem with the sensor/motor, or some sort of module. I was thinking of starting by replacing one of the cheaper...

    On mine they aren’t the torx screws, how do you remove the air bag?
  7. Camry 8th Generation (2018+)
    Hi all, is there a way to remove some of the source options when pressing the mode button on the steering wheel of a 2020 camry? I don't use Bluetooth so I wouldn't mind removing it from the list it cycles through when you press the mode button. I can see how to re-arrange them, but there...
  8. Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    My 2000 echo is about to hit 340,000 miles and is still going. The manual steering rack bushings are just about worn out and I can't find just the replacement bushings? I bet there's a Toyota car that uses the same size bushings from energy suspension or something. Anyone ever solved this issue...
  9. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Hey all! So about a month ago I got into an accident. Thank God, no one was hurt and the damage was minimal. I took my car in to get fixed. Thankfully, insurance came through for the most part. But after bringing my car in to have the mechanical work done, I started experiencing new problems...
  10. RAV4 5th Generation (2019+)
    Hi, I drove my 2019 Rav4 to work for the first time yesterday. It's about 55 miles one way, and I do 80 when I can. I found myself constantly fighting with some unnatural force in the steering. It wasn't the road, it was like a torque-steering issue or some automatic steering issue. There would...
  11. Avalon 3rd Generation (2005-2012)
    Hi, newby here. I have a 2006 Avalon XLS and the leather on the steering wheel is loosing it's finish. I am also having an issue with the switch on the cruise control it works intermittently. I don't have the radar cruise control. It is just the normal one. So I ordered another steering...
  12. Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    Here's what's inside the steering column on your car and how it works to turn your wheels. The steering column consists of: wiper switch, turn signal, cruise control, horn and airbag, clock spring, ignition cylinder and steering lock, tilt (if equiped), the steering shaft, and intermediate...
  13. Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    I took apart my steering rack to see what’s inside and how it works! Check out my video here: Here are a few photos illustrating the breakdown: The steering rack, installed in the vehicle. Its responsibility is to take the rotational motion of the steering wheel and turn it into translational...
  14. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    I have a 2009 Toyota Camry. Just yesterday my husband was driving and the power steering went out. No accidents, no incidents. Just out. He put more power steering fluid in it but now all the power steering fluid leaked out. We think there may have been a slow leak that turned into a major...
  15. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Wondering if anyone has any ideas what part is failing.. When I turn left at normal speeds, on the return about 1/4 before returning to center, its gets stiff and I have to move the steering wheel harder then normal. The best I can describe is as if there was a LUMP. Now if I go slow on the...
  16. RAV4 4th Generation (2013-2018)
    My 2013 Limited AWD RAV4 developed a clunk when turning hard to one side. I took it to the dealer with 35,940 miles on the car. They couldn't replicate the sound. I drove it for them and it appeared. It's only when turning to the right. They diagnosed a strut and replaced it under warranty. Of...
  17. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Sorry if this has been asked before, I couldn't find a thread through multiple searches. I'd like to update a couple components in my 2013 Camry. One of which is the Steering wheel. Would a 2015 Camry Steering wheel work/install in a 2013 Camry?
  18. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    I have been having a problem with my 2013 Camry. It sways back and forth when I hit a dip in road, bump, etc. I have taken to the dealership, they have checked everything and cannot find anything and stated it is the tires. I have replaced the tires and did alignment, etc. They are stating there...

    I have an 08 RAV4 sport and recently the steering wheel has been giving me some trouble! When it is quickly turned in either directions (parked or in drive), the wheel locks for a few seconds and then it becomes really stiff to turn in the same direction. The stereo also shuts off when it locks...
