#56 of 85 Sunroof Repair
Nov 30, 2006 (12:32 pm)
My daughter drives a 1997 Camry XLE with a factory installed sunroof. Last Spring it started leaking on the right side and did a good job of soaking the carpet in both the front and back. I removed the interior moldings and tried to clean out the foward drain. It seemed to work for a few months, but the leak is back. Can you recommend a reputable repair center that will not rip me off? Can you tell me how to fix this. We live on Long Island, NY.

Many newer sunroofs retract partially with an auto stop built in, for safety, both ways.
Try activating the switch manually when it stops, and see if this does the trick.
#58 of 85 WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO THE BLUE, RED, & BROWN SEATS?

What ever happened to the Red and Blue interiors of cars? Why have auto manufacturers stopped offering those interior colors? The only current car to offer blue interior is the civic hybrid! WHAT HAPPENED?

Interior color choices are usually limited to light tan & light grey these days. I personally would like to see more black interiors.

Must be based on sales & marketing statistics. The old blue & burgundy plush velour interiors probably wouldn't sell in today's market.
A lot of people want their cars to look like a Lexus or BMW...those cars only come with black, grey, or tan interiors. Also, much easier to mass produce only 2 or 3 interior colors.

The fewer options on interior colors, the more cost effective production is.
Most select lighter interior color, like tan, with greens and reds, and darker colors with black interior. Some colors come with either back or tan/cream.
It is merely a cost measure, not preferences of buyers. It is an option their research showed wouldn't make someone not buy, so it was removed to save money. Check out Mercedes for the four or five interior color options, but then you are paying $70,000 + for it. Sorry allcarscool, but mercedes offers many interior choices.
#63 of 85 Car interior colors a turnoff

My last car is a Honda with black interior which I like but am not wild about. I refused to buy a 03 04 Camry because of the poor selection of interior colors I was very tired of gray.
#64 of 85 How to remove foldable rear seat-2007 Camry
Mar 13, 2007 (4:20 pm)
We need to remove the foldable rear seat temporarily to carry a long item . I saw two bolts at the back of the each seat attached to brackets at each side. Also, I saw a "hook" which appeared to be an integral part of the bracket that was engaged in a hole . I am not sure about the procedure , I appreciate any input . Thank you.
#65 of 85 Passenger Power Seat Stuck
Mar 26, 2007 (5:39 pm)
I went through the car wash, and they moved the passenger seat all the way forward when they cleaned the interior. After driving away, I found that it is stuck fully forward and won't move back at all. Other power seat functions are normal (up/down/recline, etc...) only the movement forward/backward is affected. When the switch is pushed I can hear and feel the motor trying to move the seat but there is no movement. I've checked the track and don't see anything blocking it, I've also tried sitting in the seat and pushing with my legs when activating the switch - no luck there either. Any other ideas before I take it to the dealer?
