Time to let her go
Letting my '02 Celica go. She's needing a lot of work - disc brakes and pipes and eventually a new clutch - and I'm not longer need a car for getting to work. Any ideas what I should be asking, price-wise? Not looking for a lot but don't particularly want to give the car away.
Partially Working Sunroof
Hey guys! New member here so I'm unsure if I'm even posting in the right section lol.
Ok so a little history: I own a 2000 Celica ZR which I bought about 6 months ago. It has 190k's on the clock and it broke down on my very first day of owning it. Power steering hose broke off and shot oil in all directions, essentially almost turning my car into a fireball. Obviously, I was absolutely furious. I got the Dealership to tow the car and fix it, completely at their cost of course, which they did, and it's been running great ever since.
Now to the issue with the sunroof. It used to work fine, but now only one side of the sunroof lifts up just by pressing the button (The driver's side). This means that if I use my hand to lift up the other side, it will still go back and forth along the tracks, but it won't lift unless I do use my hand.
Question is what's broken? It's essentially just the lifting on the passengers side it has an issue with, everything else is in perfect condition... I can probably try to take a picture of the mechanism if you guys need it, but I can only take the picture from just opening the sunroof and sticking my camera as close as possible to where the issue lies, as I don't have a lot of time to take the roof apart.
1992 Celica, door card removal SOLVED
Door latch not returning into pocket, have removed plastic pops and various screws, card is still held in area of "door open" light, above door pocket on trailing edge of door.
Trying to avoid breaking door card, any tips regarding other fastenings appreciated.
Solution; There is a screw, behind the inner plastic light unit, that is not visible on removing the red lens (also screws behind latch surround cover.)
I suspected attempted theft with implement down window, this was not the case. The (dry) lock was catching and holding the latch open. This may be resolved by removing the top lock screw and applying release /lubricant into the lock without removing door card.
77 Corona Steering Gear
Years ago I removed the power steering pump from my 1977 Corona HT (RT115). It was just too much assist, no feel for the road at all. However, the non-assisted power steering gear is just getting to be too much to live with. I'd like to change it to a manual (non-power) steering gear but I am just not finding one. Plenty of rebuilt Power Steering gears around for my car just no manuals. Does anyone know if the Celica or some other vehicle used the same steering gear? I do find non-power steering gears for Celica's just not Corona's
