Toyota Camry Interior



  • yankeryanker Posts: 156
    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.

    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.

    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?

    Maybe you ought to go back to that car wash and tell them what happened. The repair cost should be on their dime, although convincing them will get harder the longer you wait.

    I tried the car was the next day, they're not going to take responsibility (and aren't going to get any more of my business either).

    I have 2007 Camry LE. I want to install an aftermarket "BlueConnect" bluetooth set in the overhead. I need to run one wire from the sunglass case area to an "accessories" wire. I need to pry off the cover on the drivers side forward window post between the windshield and the drivers window that houses the side curtain air bag. I'm sort of afraid to mess with the airbag area. Anyone know the secret to removing the cover and reinstalling? Thanks.
  • HI I have some tears in the drivers cloth seat you can actually see the medal that put the rips in the seat. It is a power seat. I was wondering about getting the seat repaired but they said they would have to order an entire seat and since its power the price would be around 3k. Does anyone have any ideas. Thanks

    I'd try to find a 'pre-owned' seat in a wrecked vehicle from a junk yard....if you want to keep the exact same look.

    You're correct in being wary. The side airbags are not that likely to go off, but it can be tricky getting the plastic trim removed. For safety's sake though, I'd make sure the keys are out of the ignition for at least 10 minutes before starting the work.

    This trim is just clipped on. But you're going to have to pull/pry harder than you like, and there is a possibility of breaking one or more clips (or the trim itself), so you may want to get someone knowledgeable in this area to help you.

    I have older Camrys ('04 and '05) and these have the side curtain airbag inflators in the C-pillars (behind the rear doors); there is just a tether in the front pillars.
  • The sunroof on my 1997 Camry doesn't close all the way. The glass panel doesn't seem to move quite far enough forward. The rear edge of the panel, on the passenger side, gets hung up on the roof opening. Are there instructions anywhere on how to adjust?
  • 210delray210delray Posts: 4,722
    First consult your owner's manual and follow the instructions exactly for "initializing" the moonroof. My 2004-05 Camrys have such instructions, not sure if the '97 will.

    If this doesn't work (and it sounds like it may not), you're going to have to see a professional (doesn't have to be the dealer), just someone you trust or has a good reputation according to friends, relatives, or co-workers.
  • I am looking for some leather care products to protect my leather interior. I have seen some product make the leather shiny and greasy, but that is not what I want. I need something which can protect the leather, at the same time I still want it looks not greasy. Are most of the stock camry come with leather and Viney combination? Is the leather care product can use on both surfaces?

    Thanks for any suggestion and recommadation

    Thank You for your help
  • 210delray210delray Posts: 4,722
    1997 through 1999 are identical, and 2000-01 may also be the same.

    Hi, I recently test drove a fully loaded 2010 XLE V6 with nav and I have to say that the interior in this camry was pretty nice looking. I know the earlier models in 2007 and 2008 had some quality issues and some didn't like it but I think Toyota did a nice job on the refresh for 2010 in correcting the quality issues, panel gaps, and darkening the wood grain in the cabin that plagued earlier models that last few years. I feel the materials in the 2010 XLE made for a quite luxury feel to the cabin and bringing it back closer to Toyota quality and ergonomics!

    The passenger side interior door handle plastic lever snapped on my 2002 Camry.

    I can buy a replecement for $20 or so online. Has there been any recall on these ? It would seem dangerous to be unable to open the door from inside in an accident.

    How difficult is it to remove the old plastic interior latch unit ? Do you just pry the unit out to replace, or have you got to disassemble surrounding upholstery panels ?

    Usually you can buy these replacements at the dealer, yes. Most of them come out by prying off the plastic shield behind the handle (the shield where your fingernails touch the plastic) and there is usually one or two phillips screws there.

    I haven't worked on your particular car, so in some cases you'll have to pop the door panel off to detach the handle from the activating lever. You'll have to get in there and poke around. Also when you see the new part that should tip you off.

    Plastic breaks on 7 year old cars. That's normal wear and tear on a part that takes a lot of abuse.

    Thanks. I saw some on line. Not too expensive ($20 delivered) . I'll check the dealers price as well. When I get it, I'll see if I want to pop it on myself. Shouldn't be too much trouble.
