Fantastic   . . . . .   
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.

Questions & Answers

Mechanic Q: About rear window defogger?

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.

A: About rear window defogger?

Thanks Richard, you advice was very helpful - I found my open in affected stripe.

A: About rear window defogger?

Thanks Richard. I do have the ohmmeter. So what is a procedure? Do I first try to find open point visually or just touch leads somewhere in bad stripe trying to find out differences of resistance?

A: ceramic pads??

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.
