Re: HOW TO: Install Sliding Center Console in a Toyota Camry Hybrid (2009)

This is what I wrote about the process a while back.
I installed the sliding armrest on my TCH in June 2006.
It has been well worth the $200 I paid my dealer to order the armrest.
I hope you enjoy...

Re: Stereo Bluetooth!

I can't say I've heard of any firmware updates for our radios, or even that it is possible without replacing the radio.

Re: VIN Decode? 1st TCH's made?

The black sticker on the driver's door frame will tell you the month of manufacture. Mine says 04/06 and has a serial number in the 3800's.

Re: Rattles resolved

I had some rattles in the moonroof area, but they went away after I fiddled with the bar that pops us a a windbreak when the moonroof is open.

Did you burn all the folders in one burning session? Some CD players have problems with multisession CDs.

Re: Sell the '07 - Buy the '09

Sunday? All dealerships are closed on Sundays around here (IL, and as far as I know - IN, MI, WI).
Good luck with the pickup and drive back.

Re: Japan Camry Accessories

Very impressive.
I'm glad you got them to work, but ouch.
For $600, I might have done it, but for $1100 I probably won't have it done myself.
Thank you for the information and pictures.

Re: Where is my wheel lock key?

Mine was in the glove compartment with the manuals and the other paperwork.
It was inside a bag with a form with instructions on how to get another key if you lost this one.

Re: How Long Must I Wait?

That would make sense especially with the Prius being built in the US in 2010.

Re: Does anything other than oil change cause the Maint Reqd screen to appear?

I haven't seen it for anything except the oil change warning, but a similar annoying screen that won't go away until you do something about it is the Low Washer Fluid warning.

Actually if you dig farther down into the wiring adapter you'll find this:

Re: Warranty / Repair Items for TCH?

I had the Bridgestones and got 38000 out of them before I replaced them with Mich Primacys. Tire Rack shows the Bridgestones rated at 260AA so 26000 is not horrible.
