    Default So, what's broken inside your Celica?!

    Just a topic to let other 5th gen owners know what's a common problem with our Celicas' interior, or if their problem is just plain weird, and to see if anyone can help out fixing those annoying problems.

    My problems are...
    Broken driver side door open/close sensor
    Passenger seat doesnt retract foward when the recline level is pulled
    Rattling driver side window, nasty sound when the bass hits...
    Weird seatbelt retracting noise

    I could say nothing too but if we get technical the only thing in my car that doesn't work is the Auto-down for my power window. And I need new window seals, other than that my car is great besides needing a paint job.

    I don't have too many...

    -passenger seat doesn't lock properly
    -passenger seat doesn't move forward when lever pulled
    -fresh air light doesn't work most of the time

    That's about it. After my repaint, the only things I have to get fixed are...

    -rear hatch trim (all pieces have some damage or don't fit in right)
    -driver side fog light needs new bulb

    And then the mods can start!

    Armrest cover
    Knobby missing off drivers side vent
    Seat bolt plastic covers - I think they're in my door storage compartment, but I dont use them anyways
    Red light on drivers door won't light up (not bulb)
    Lower center vent (under clock)


    Stuff I've replaced
    - Tweeter covers
    - Shift boot
    - Little covers for the screws that hold the trim on door handle/ windows/locks

    Stuff I've fixed
    - Windows rattling

    -Creacked fan speed control knob
    -A/C doesn't blow cold air
    -Sunroof doesn't work at all so the second owner had the fuse for it cut to prevent them form accidentally opening it and getting it stuck. But when they did this the dome light got killed as well
    -Seatbelt sensor is broken
    -Random interior cigarette burns from first owner (second owner and I don't smoke. We have lots of hatred for first owner)

    That's about it. I bet I'm gonna find more things wrong later on though. But I love this car anyway.

    too much to list, nothing I care about tho. Im going back and forth on where I want to invest in a project car, either the celi or an older honda (crx/hatchback). Its really a 50/50, I want to do a 5sfte and if I get on it, could have everything together and lookin good by next march or so... income tax will help. either way I could get the pieces I need localy(still in austin but almost an hour or more drive, completely across town, plus texas is hot, AC no worky) and for cheap, just too lazy.

    Let me see.. I'm going to list the problems and the solutions (things I'm going to be doing soon).

    -Driver's side window rattles: need to remove door panel and adjust the device that holds the window up. There is a FAQ on one of the DSM forums that talks about doing this, and the procedure should be the same.

    -Circuit behind dimmer switch is broken, causing everything but the clock, stereo, and aftermarket gauges to stay dark at night: need to get another from the junkyard and plug it in.

    -Some very small rattles under the dash: probably hard to fix unless the dash comes out, but I will tighten whatever bolts I can get to.

    -Dome light doesn't come on all the time when the door is opened: need to replace driver's side door open/close sensor, I believe.

    -It's blue: dye it black

    -There is a HORRIBLE rattle in the rear: need to find out what it is and fix it. I thought it was the struts, but the mounts are secure along with the top of the struts where they attach to the mounts. I will likely be overhauling the rear suspension. New poly bushings everywhere, new swaybar links, perhaps some KONI struts that I can get replaced under warranty when they break.
