      Check the various on-line vendors; www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.RockAuto.com, www.partsgeek.com, to list only a few. For example, they (RockAuto) list the front headlamp assembly from around $35.00,and the repair manual from around $13.80 for your vehicle.

      Lack of lubrification is the cause of the jammed latch. Spray an adequate amount of the WD-40 to lubricate the mechanism.

      Note: spray WD-40 in a ventilated area due to the fumes.

      The antenna is located behind the rear tire molding. By removing the rear tire and then the black liner in the wheel well you can gain full access the the antenna.

      sounds like either a broken wire in the harness from the driver's door or the master switch
      the wire from the door into the car flexes and brakes the wiring inside it over time. will have to use a test light to check it out.

    Want to view a diagram of the truck opening mechanism of the truck lid.
    The lever operated by the pull handle by the drivers seat no longer opens the truck. The lever operated by that cable does not operate the second lever on the trunk mechanism that opens the truck lid.

    What is a reasonable estimate for replacement of front right fender?
    Front right fender is dented over wheel. Still driving no problem. No other parts are damaged.

      The vehicle would have to be inspected in person - at a local, trusted auto body repair shop in your area. There is no way for anyone other than that person to know the cost or provide you with an accurate estimate.

      The fender on 02 Avalon is a bit costly, as the bumper, lights and rocker molding need to be removed. Depending on the cost of the fender (OEM vs Aftermarket) you could be looking at $500 - $700 with parts and labor (including paint). If the dent is not too bad, it will def. be worth saving the part, and repairing it vs. replacing, as you could save a couple of hundred dollars.

      Click on the link for everything the gage fuse controls. Eliminate those circuits, one at a time. Hopefully that will find the problem? I know, like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

      Thanks for your help. Found that a mouse had gotten in the wiring loom and chewed two wires.

      You said you put the motor in . jdl is right . Can be very hard to find . But check the wire loom also to make sure none of it got pinched . Could have a wire or 2 touching and or grounding out .

      simple wires are being rubbed so the current being pulled is too much so the fuse keep burning try a higher fuse

      I wouldn't use a higher rated fuse. Just my opinion.
