#162 of 375 How to replace a stereo in a '92 Corolla
May 05, 2005 (3:41 pm)
I am the very proud owner of a 1992 Toyota Corolla 4-door sedan with a 5-speed standard transmission (with 240K-plus miles on it and the original clutch!!). A very
kind person is gifting me a used, working radio/cassette player (the original one gave up the ghost a long time ago).
I wonder if someone could point me in the direction of finding out how I can take out the original radio/cassette player and replace it. It doesn't look too obvious, but I'd really like to do it myself, if I could.
Thanks for your help!!
#163 of 375 Adding Keyless Remote?
May 06, 2005 (4:26 pm)
Considering a new CE that has powe door locks (Convenience Package) - but need remote keyless. Has anyone added this as an after market? Approx. cost? Would it be better to go with dealer install option?
#164 of 375 Intermittent wipers
May 08, 2005 (5:35 am)
I would sure like to replace my standard wiper control with an intermittent wiper control on my 97 Corolla Plus SD. Is this possible? Is it a difficult DIY project?
Also, how about a new cluster c/w a tach?

Two things will set you on your way to a simple replacement.
1. Haynes Repair Manual
2. Radio wire harness illustration from www.installdr.com
Also, you may want to purchase an adapter kit with harness, however the poor mans way is to snip the wiring harness off, strip the wires and connect using electrical tape or solderless connectors.
I just purchased a 92 sedan myself and replaced the stereo with a used clarion and I also install new speakers because the originals had rotted out. New system is awesome! Good luck!
#166 of 375 Mute For Hands Free Kit in 2005 Corolla
May 22, 2005 (8:30 am)
I would like to install a hands free kit for cell phone use such as the Nokia Ck-7w (see link at end of message) in my 2005 Corolla LE with the 6CD changer. Systems like the ck-7w have a "mute" functionality when properly connected to a car's radio. However, I have read that some Toyota radios lack a lead or pin for muting. Does anyone know if the radio has a mute lead/pin? Has anyone had such a kit installed with this radio?
#167 of 375 Removing Corolla S underbody spoiler/skirts
May 22, 2005 (1:39 pm)
After getting broadsided by a woman blowing through a stop sign and totaling my well-maintained 1997 Corolla (in fact, I had just spent $800 the week before getting the 120K mile service done and replacing the timing belt, etc), I am shopping around for a 2005 Corolla LE w/ manual transmission, side airbags, ABS, moonroof, spoiler, and Audio Value Package. Two dealerships in my area informed me that they could not locate such a vehicle in the N. CA region. . .
One sales manager suggested looking for a Corolla S (of which they have more manual transmissions) and having the underbody kits removed, since they're not to my liking. Has anyone heard of or done this on their vehicles? I'm worried that it might look odd, for some reason.

I know you can get it done, but I wouldnt waste time and money modifying a brand new car. usually if a dealer doesnt have a certain type of car in stock they can tranfer it from another dealership, or you can wait till a car of that type arrives. Other than that I would look into purchasing online, although you have to be very careful with this due to fraud. I would ask the dealership to remove it for you if thats what they suggested and have them remove it at no cost to you. I dont think it would look odd at all, but that also depends on whether the body will look the exact same as the LE when you remove them. I just bought a corolla S, but I liked the underbodykit. I got an automatic though. Its too bad cause the color I wanted first (indigo blue) had all the features I wanted but it was manual and I'm too scared to drive it in Arizona. I wonder if you can contact an out of state dealership and request them to ship the car to you? You should look into that!!

Just picked up my Corolla S with all options and it looks good. They tried to sell me the alarm system for $550 which I passed on. They brought it down to $450 and I still passed. Thought I would buy the club for about $65. Any suggestions?
#170 of 375 1990 Corolla has no idiot buzzer for headlights?
Jul 14, 2005 (2:30 pm)
I've been driving a used 1990 Corolla for the past two years. On a couple of occasions, I've managed to forget to turn off my headlights.
Is this car supposed to issue a warning sound that headlights are on, as I leave the vehicle?
If not, is there a simple way to install a idiot signal to warn me that I've left the headlights on??
Thank you in advance for any advice or suggestions regarding this subject.
