This car is really great. No troubles, fantastic comfortable but controlled ride. This car forgives driver's bad manners and runs very elegant under any outside conditions.
About 80% of parts are original - factory - including original struts and 90% of bulbs are original.
Never betrayed me as owner since it's very reliable machine.
what is best way to find out where is the point of open circuit of electric path on the rear defogger?
Two paths out of about total twenty paths are out of order and they don't heat the glass anymore.
But I want to find exact point where they are broken/worn out since I need to paint them with special electric paint.
I have ceramic pads installed on my 1997 Camry (good quality - Centrics) and in some specific conditions they sqealed for one or two times after I started to drive in the morning.
But now - which is after 6 months - they are not squeling at all. They are quiet like mice.
So probably you need some breakdown time.
And for sure - this is not unsafe when they squeal.
in my 97' Camry - what is situation with differential main drivetrain wheelwork? Meaning connection between differential drive pinion, and differential gear ring which is attached to differential case. I have heard that this main wheelwork has to be paired due to smooth and quiet operation. So, that' question: if I replaced differential case - do I have tu purchase such paired parts, differential drive pinion and differential gear ring, as well?
