      Need more details - how is the latch broken? How long has the latch been broken? Have you already contacted the local dealership for any recalls related? If not, then this maybe the first step.

    Replace headlight assembly
    instructions for replacing the headlight assembly
    • Jimm

      First: To get the headlights out, you have to first remove the entire front bumper facade. To do that there are a total of 11 bolts (10 mm) and 5 plastic push pins. There are 7 bolts (10 mm) along the bottom edge of the bumper, remove these. 5 of them are black and the other 2 are silver in color.

      Second, There is a bolt, like the black ones from underneath, on the edge where the bumper meets the fender well, remove it.
      Once you've got that bolt out, pull the inner fender well back and inside you'll see another bolt, you have to remove this one too. Its easier to use a phillips head screw driver on this one rather than a socket or wrench.
      After you've got all the bolts out from underneath and from the fender wells, move to underneath the hood. There are five plastic push pins you've got to take out. 2 on either side right next to the head light and one right in the center.

      Use a flat head screwdriver to pop these up and pull them out. 2 of them have rubber tops on them and are a little harder to pull out, but use a little elbow grease and they'll come out. Once all the pins are out, pull the two upper corners of the bumper away from the fender on either side. The bumper should now slide out pretty easy. (if you have foglights, be sure to disconnect the wires to them.)

      Now you can start to take out the headlights, the procedure is exactly the same for both sides. First disconnect all the bulb connections. I found it easier to leave the bulbs in the housing rather than pulling them all out and leaving them hanging. There are 3 bolts (10 mm) holding the headlights into place, two on top and one on the side.

      Once these are out the headlight should slide right out. It might take a little force, but there is a tab which might have to be pried up a little bit.

      The installation is the reverse of the removal.

    Can I drive it a few hours away?

    How to replace coolant reservoir
    • Jimm
      12/28/2012 Jimm
      First step, drain the coolant from the radiator - use the radiator drain petcock at the bottom of the radiator. Next, remove the radiator shroud / fan housing. The coolant reservoir is an integral piece to the fan shroud / housing. There are three (3) bolts and one hose connection.
      Check on-line for the many parts supply sources, such as; or for the replacement parts. For example, they (RockAuto) list the coolant reservoir tank for around $47.00 for your vehicle.

    Airbag light is staying on .

      Couldn't figure it out on my 2005 Scion xB, and took it to the dearler finally. They diagnosed the problem as it being a Clock Springfor the Air Bag that was bad and needed to be replaced. I searched all over the interenet for this part and could not find it, so I'm guessing it musty be a Dealer Part only. It cost just over $385.00 to have repaired. Without this part, your Air Bag won't deploy in the event of a collision. If it's not the Air Bag Clock Spring, it could have something to do with the Seat Beat sensor or Seat Belt Buckle itself.

      yes, you have it right.

      Thank you, I had seen some references to blower resistor problems in Honda Civics. I thought it might be the same for Scions. Lucky guess. Again, thanks for the confirmation.

      To gain access, you have to remove the ECM. A shop can do it in less than an hour.
