      Headlight switch. Combination switches operate wipers, directionals, horn, headlights and dimmers
      When not replaced, wipers, directionals, horn, headlights and dimmer, may not function or turn off potentially causing safety issues.

      The person that will do the repair has to disassemble and examine what part or parts are needed before you can knoiw how much, but from prior experience I can tell that the cause is *probably* a broken wiper transmission that pivots back and forth under that cowl panel below the wiper arms. Typically a repair of (ballparking) $200

    How is the carpet getting wet on the front and back passender side
    Occasionally have to clean out sunroof hose. Now when it rains only the carpet on the front and back passenger side is soaked. No sign that it's the sunroof. The ceiling and seats remain dry.

      I believe that you are still being affected by improper drainage from the sunroof. Take a look at the bottom of the rocker panels and see if there are drain pinch holes along that vertical edge where the body seam is. On Chrysler Sebring the floor gets wet because the rocker panels fill with water and overflow into the car and the fix is simply to blow compressed air up into these clogged drains. There are like a few of them on each side of the car. Don't know if Camry has these, you have to look because if the rocker panels (which when clogged become like fish tanks) are clogged they will overflow internally and if one side is clogged more than the other side that may explain why you only have one side carpet getting wet.

    I need to replace the passenger side-view mirror cover. Can I do it myself?
    I crunched the passenger side-view mirror, and the casing/cover broke into a bunch of pieces and snapped off. I put it back on with black duct tape, to reduce the obviousness of the problem, but would now like to replace it. The inner workings are just fine, and I ...

      yes, but you will need to go to a toyota prius parts dept at the dealer to see if the part that you broke is serviced / sold as a separate replacement part and whether it comes painted or not because that adds money too. Something tells me you may be better off locating a used mirror complete ass'y and replacing the ass'y. Much quicker, may be cheaper also. Which one of these is your car >>

      Not to sound cheap (okay, let's face it, I am what I am), but I was finding other assemblies online for about $40-$80. I'm sure that they probably weren't OEM, but would it have to be Toyota's brand?

      Yes I agree with you but these cheap aftermarket mirrors look and feel totally diffferent than the original and do not come already painted the same color as your car is now and they are going to feel cheap and might not match up with the electrical plug. Do you want to install the aftermarket mirror the way it comes in black finish or maybe you want to buy some blue spray paint and hope that it matches and will not peel off in a month? I have been down that road with the aftermarket mirrors. An aftermarket mirror might be OK for a cheap station car where nothing matters anymore but not for a 2012 car. Your car is almost brand new. I assume that you want to keep it looking that way. I suspect that even if a replacement cover were availabkle from Toyota that the cost would be almost or more than $100 for the part and would have to be painted to match by a body shop (at least another $75 or more) plus then the mirror has to be removed and the cover be replaced.

    My low beams will go off when I use my turn signal what could it be?
    when i use the combination lights my low beams will sometimes come on but, when i use my turn signal (left & Right )the lights go out. And when I use the left turn signal I have to gently lower the stick to keep the lights from going out.

      The headlight switch is built into the turn signal lever is it not? I don't think it is a coincidence that moving the turn signal lever kills the headlights. My strongest suspicion is the headlight switch which on this car is the turn signal lever and wires.

      Several possibilities; faulty turn signal switch, faulty turn signal relay. As the first step, simply exchange / swap the turn signal relay with another one of the same type - from the relay panel - to see if the problem moves or changes. If yes, then replace the relay. If no, then suspect the turn signal switch.
