  1. Hi, Does anyone know if the Celica Gen 6 (1999) has a cabin air filter? I know that the later Celicas have a filter behind the glove box but I can't see one on my Gen 6. The Air Conditioning in mine is now getting to be rather smelly when I first turn it on and I would really like to give it all a good clean. Any help/advice would be greatfully received.
  2. When I replaced a Peugeot wing mirror glass recently, there was a clip on the inside that you had to move with a screwdriver before the glass would pop out. Just wondering if it's the same sort of thing on the Celica (Gen 6) The glass mirror is actually OK, I just need to get in there to do some electrical work.
  3. Does anyone know how to remove the wing mirror glass from a Gen 6 Celica? Thanks
  4. I also have this problem - could you elaborate with a diagram/photo to illustrate the procedure for fixing it? Thanks.... creeeeack,... sorry, that was me...
  5. See above I have the same problem - the creaking certainly sounds like it is in the car but I have lubricated all the linkages and moving joints connected to the clutch pedal ... but it is still doing it and it is beginning to drive me NUTS! Has anyone else had this problem and actually cured it? Reading the forums it seems to be quite common. Thanks....., creeeeeack - sorry, just changed into second...
  6. Just as a follow up - I took the bonnet switch off and gave it some thorough "counselling". (Pushed it, pulled it, cleaned it with WD40, measured it's resistance (0.02 ohms), operated it lots of times and refitted it - checking it's alignment). That was a few weeks ago and I haven't heard the chirping noise since - in fact I now quite miss it... Thanks for the help & if the situation changes I shall let you know. Dave J Just to follow up and put this one to bed... since sevicing the sensor on the bonnet the thing has not made so much as a peep - and it's been well over a year now. Thanks for the info BenMMellor! Dave J
  7. Forgive me but I am due to change the rear disks and pads (only contacting in a small area) on my 1999, Gen 6, 2.0l Celica and would love to find some install guides but I can't find any anywhere! Could you post a link to them? (If I try doing a search for them I end up with 140 odd pages - am I doing something wrong?)

  9. Thanks for the reply, I can confirm that the alarm is the factory fitted TVSS IIIB. The car starts fine - plenty of juice in the main battery. I have just found out that when the alarm is "tripped", the siren now makes a high pitched, but not very loud, even sound.... not the ear shattering noise it used to make! It does sound b***ered doesn't it? If I take off the siren (the bit under the battery tray) am I liable to have troubles with the immobiliser? I don't want to render the car unusable but being an avionics engineer I may be able to fix a knackered siren. Also - if I disconnect the battery, will the immobiliser activate when I reconnect it? I really don't want to be left with an immobilised car that has to be towed to Mr T. Thanks again for your help, Dave JJ
  10. My 1999 Gen 6 Celica has developed a wierd "alarm" fault. When the car is locked the alarm will often make a constant chattering/chirping noise. Sleeping last night with the bedroom window open, I was awoken by this strange steady chirping noise that I traced to the car alarm. Does this alarm maybe have an internal battery that is going flat? The main battery reads 12.1v volts off load. Any advice would be gratefully received, Dave JJ SS-II Engine Model = 3S-GE 0-60= 7.5 Sec. Power = Manual 177.5BHP, Automatic 167.6 BHP, Model number on VIN for Manual---------E-ST202-BLMVF Model number on VIN for Automatic-----E-ST202-BLPVF
  11. Both buttons together or just one? In range of the car? (actually - tried one, then the other, and then both... still no luck) Any other ideas? Hope the one working fob doesn't pack up...
  12. I have just bought a 1999 Celica GT (Hoorah!!) but one of the alarm fobs did not have a battery in it (Alarm TVSS IIIB). The other one works fine. I have put a new battery in the first one - does anyone know how to "Sync" this fob with the vehicle? The led works when you press the buttons but it won't open/close the doors. Thanks, Dave J
