DIY Variable Speed wiper stalk install

This was originally posted by Violin but was lost after the hack. Here is what I could find off of the google cache. Thanks Violin!








With the wheels straight ahead, put a piece of tape with a line drawn on it to mark the center position of the steering wheel.


DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE and go surf internet porn or something. I wait at least 5 minutes to be sure that the airbag is safely asleep.


Use a #30 torx wrench and remove the bolts at the back of the steering wheel. They won’t come out; just loosen them all the way.




Pull the airbag.



Unplug the horn wire, pop up the little yellow tabs on the airbag plugs and remove them.


Set the airbag aside with the Toyota emblem facing up.


Remove the center nut from the steering wheel.


Using a steering wheel puller, remove the steering wheel and set it aside.


Remove the three screws holding the cowling in place and pop it apart.









Unplug the two connectors on the wiper stalk.


Depress the clip holding the wiper stalk in place and remove it.




Install the new wiper stalk so that it clicks into place.


Plug the two connectors into the new stalk.



Reattach the cowling.



Wind this center spiral cable counterclockwise all the way until it won’t turn any more. Turn it back clockwise 2.5 turns and align the marks at the bottom.





Put the steering wheel back on and align your tape marks.



Reinstall the center nut.



Plug in the airbag and horn.



Tighten the torx screws in the back and you’re done!




The variable speed front works but the intermittent rear won’t without additional wiring.

Total elapsed time: 30 minutes including taking photos.

Thanks Violin..... I wanted to get this reposted before it disappeared from google cache...DanQ

wiper lever install

In the same thread "chipchip" responded:
When installing the wiper switch there is no need for removing the steering wheel. I had no trouble when I removed the plastic steering shaft shrowd halves. After removing the 3 fasteners take care when pressing in on the side seams and wiggle- pull apart. If you are not carefull you might break the clips. It would be interesting to see if someone has purchased the smaller female plug from a Matrix with the extra wiring and figure out where this extra wire goes. Maybe it's a ground? If so you would only have to run it to a fastener thru metal and attach. I will talk to an auto technician and see what he thinks. Chipchip......If anyone is tired of having their Yaris floor matt hooks come out when you slide your feet forward while getting into the drivers seat then carefully drill a small hole in the center of the plug end of the hooks. Then get a short screw that when screwed through will force the inner clips out and keep them there. Make sure the clips are through the holes before screwing the screws in.

Sorry to revive an old thread, is the steering wheel puller tool, compulsory to remove the steering wheel? And just as a question, how would I access the headlight stalk to replace it, it appears to be behind the centre spiral piece? So do I have to remove the centre spiral piece too?

Thanks in advance.

Having changed out my wheel I can answer that a wheel puller is not needed. I gently tapped with a rubber mallet and the wheel lifted right off. As I recall, I performed the wheel change in about 30 min.

I can't help with the headlight issue....sorry.

I had to use the puller tool but it was cheap ($20 at Napa).

I'd hope so... I'd have to keep the car for a few millennia to break even on time spent/saved doing it this way.

A DIY without removing the wheel/airbag would be great.

Looking at the ToyoDIY, the 07 Camry switch looks veeeeerrrrrrry similar to the ones suggested above. Have any sedaners verified it'll work?

I'll keep an eye out for one, or convince my Camry owning friend to let me borrow his. *crosses fingers*

2008 Yaris Sedan wiper switch swap

I bought a new 2008 Camry wiper switch with variable speed intermittent settings (the whole reason for the swap) from my friendly local Toy dealer. Pulled the two plastic shells around the wheel, apart. Carefully unplugged the connectors from the factory switch, and plugged in the new. One of the smarter decisions I've made in my life! Happy Swapping!

My other car is a 65 Shelby with a couple of extra horses than my beloved Yaris Sedan!! and yes dang it, I love my Yaris. Just wish Toyota had a better design for the funky storage little nooks and crannies in the cabin. Also would like to see them put turn signals on the outside mirrors. Scion does! How about factory installed steering wheel radio and cellphone controls? Hey Toyota, you do this for cars you sell in Pakistan, why not the US bound units???!! What gives? We help keep your doors open man. You need to better equip cars you send here.

Peace out!
Amir
