incredible detailed pictures! extremely usefull when assembling a car from scratch as I am doing. finally see where the bracket goes on the alternator to hold up the 2 hoses. great shot.
would you happen to have a picture of where the fuel shut off switch mounts under the dash? for the life of me I can'e see where it goes. had several cars in the past but never paid any attention
to the fuel shut off. thanks in advance.

Great pictures, now can we move to the front of the car and show how to change a simple turn signal bulb? Passenger side would be great, and both sides would be better. NYS inspection needs turn signals to work and I got 9 days and counting to get it done!

If I was a car designer I would make that car where you can pull the trunk liner out and easy access to the back on the headlamp assembly, but something tells me, NOT!

This new ownership thing is fun, but wow its a 5$ lightbulb....LOL

Guys, I have often wished for a thread full of detailed photos to assist me in disassembling or reassembling some part of the FGT. Please post your Photos with a brief description of the content!

I'll start with some detail shots of the McIntosh head unit -

Removing the liner isn’t necessary to change the turn signal bulbs. The housings snap in place. As I recall, they slide in one direction and pull out. I apologize that I don’t recall the exact procedure.

@spartan and @Sinovac, he said turn signal, not side marker.

Pull the fender liner, which involves some push pins and brute strength. Assuming you are certain it is the bulb (the indicator fast blinks and the hazard also does not work). If hazard works and turn signal does not, then you have to diagnose the SJB. Or, as the owner's manual says, see your authorized dealer.

Also, please remove the comma: "Nothing says, I've given up more than a beige Camry in the drive."

From what I am reading, I have to remove the front splitter. I also read that a person said to slap the top of the headlight housing, too which I did, and it started working! Where we live in NYS we have bad, bumpy, no maintained roads, due to Mario's son not knowing that there is a place called Upstate NY, thus I think when I drove it the other day, I must have jarred it. Now it is working fine and I will get it inspected and be OK. I have owned and still do own cars and I have never even burned out a bulb, that is why I thought that something was up and the bulb was OK.

Yes, the hazard did not light up and the turn signal fast blinked. Like I said, I slapped it a few light nice slaps and it started working again.

A good slap for misbehavior. I just had the splitter off to drain coolant and I did not see access to the headlamp assemblies from underneath. Not saying it can't be done, but I couldn't even see the lamps.

Great stuff; now I know where all of my blue tape has gone; LOL

Now as for the trim removal tool; IMO it needs to be used with the understanding of the associated risk of cosmetic damage if one is not very careful or IMO better yet; not used at all and in its place a small 90 degree pick be used. The pick tool can catch the underside of the trim with no risk of damage.

Once again; you did good

Thank you

You have to do it by feel. The turn signal bulb only takes a quarter turn to come out of the headlight housing.

Pieces of the blades from the Supercharger! The blades made contact when bearings failed. Will give more details later.
