My door handle stopped working -_-. I have to roll down the window and open it from the outside. I was just wondering if someone could post a tutorial for this.

It is clear that 3MZ-FE has a a interference engine and timing belt needs to be changed at 90,000miles.

I just bought a 04 Solara SE Conv with 131000 miles from a dealer. The engine is very clean and sounds smooth. I do not know if timing belt has been changed or not. I could not find any sticker indicating that it has been.

Is there a way to check by removing timing belt cover? I am a DIY guy. How difficult is it to do this engine timing belt?

Thank you in advance.

Does anyone know how to take the headlights out of a gen 1.5? I've already tried by taking out the corners 1st and then the grill. But the front bumper seems to be in the way of the Headlights.. Do i really have to take apart my bumper to remove them?

@Yippekaiyaymfckr

IRC You have to remove the grill and corner light. there is a bolt underneath the corner light and 2 on the top support and maybe one under the grill.

How do I go about installing the Superpro dogbone bushings? Every shop I've been to said that they weren't able to since the bushings have too big of a lip.
