I own a 2003 Avalon and I am looking for an in-depth manual/repair book on such things as sun roof removal,installing a Sirius Radio in the ash tray compartment without loosing the spring loaded door and other customizing options. I'm as first timer so I am open to any and all suggestions.

Give All Data DIY a try. I use it for all my cars and it lists that it support the 03 Avalon. The book quotes the time to do a job and TSBs, where the clips are behind all plastic pieces in the dash etc. It has two demo cars to check it out on (one is a 95 Tercel). There is a yearly price but it isn't much. If you get a multi year subscription, you can change the vehicle the manual is for once for free.
#17 of 20 Recommend Maintenance for 2000 XLS with 30k miles
Dec 11, 2006 (12:31 pm)
I will soon be the owner of a 2000 Avalon XLS with all of 30k miles on it. The car looks to be in excellent condition, but it is 6 years old.
From what I understand the only real maintenance done to the car has been oil changes, tire rotation, and I don't know much beyond that.
Given this scenario, what type of maintenance or proper preventive care should I invest in right off the bat.
I was thinking tires, battery, coolant flush, transmission fluid, differential fluid.
I'm not sure if this is being paranoid or if it makes sense to do all of these maintenance items.
What would you suggest?
