Re: SR5 vs 2wd Part Compatibility

Side mirrors swap over but I think the mounting points for the seats is different because the floor pan for the 4wd has to accommodate the rear drive shaft. You could probably make it work though, others have swapped weird seats into T4's before, it just requires some modifications.

Re: f#*%ing nylon locking nuts

That's a good idea, I'll try melting the nylon with acetone next time.

Re: Intermittent Wipers..

Oh I don't know about that. I never used a puller, just pushed and pulled each side a few times. They take some oomph to do it but not that much.

Re: f#*%ing nylon locking nuts

On this particular car, the outer joint of the CV axle is in the way of removing the ball joint nut, which means the stud has to be lowered out of the taper to remove the nut. I generally like working on this car but this particular design stinks. Anyway, I wound up just cutting the stud just below ...

Re: Intermittent Wipers..

Sorry Chris, it's been a long time so I can't say for sure but I do believe it was the same size nut that holds the steering wheel on the trucks as the tercel. It was big, either 19 or 21 mm I think.

f#*%ing nylon locking nuts

If there's one thing I hate on most cars I've worked on, it's nylon locking nuts. Removing them is such a pain in the ass. Right now I'm wrestling with the one on the driver side ball joint on my wife's Accent. Does anyone have any good tips on how to get them off when they are really f-ing stuck, a...

4wd corolla sedan in Comox, BC

https://comoxvalley.craigslist.org/cto/d/courtenay-central-toyota-corolla-full/7013727599.html This is interesting. You don't see many of the 4wd sedans, and this one appears to be in great shape. Very low km's, too. However, I don't understand how a 4wd could have one of those miniature spare tires...

Re: Intermittent Wipers..

I'm not sure about A10 plugs but A11 ones have a separate small plug for the adjustable intermittent wiper feature. It was in the photos I posted on the second page of this thread but Photobucket has kindly blurred all my pics because they keep trying to find ways to squeeze a few more $$$ out of pe...

Re: Throttle sticking

Check for carbon buildup at the throttle plate, and clean it with carb cleaner if you find any.

Re: Progress?

I am afraid my daughters will have to clean it out after I pass away. This is a legitimate concern. My dad is a full on hoarder, like you see on those reality tv shows, and I've explained to him that if he doesn't clean up his 2-acre mess before he dies, he is going to be leaving all of his loved o...

Re: Is there a cure to snapped e-brake cables?

I never snapped any but I did run into 3 or 4 frozen ones over the years. It is definitely one of the more annoying jobs. I think I remember attempting to revive some frozen ones with penetrating oil but it didn't work.

Re: Cv axle popping out

IIRC a few members on here have had problems with the c-clips of certain brands of CV axles. If you do a search I'm sure you'll find a few threads on it.
