2.Replace air cabin filter genuine toyota.
3.Replace air filter K&N
4.Replace rear wiper blade.
5.Replace Serpentine Belt genuine toyota
6. Brake cleaning front and rear
7. Replace lug bolt and lug nut in my front right wheel cause it was not holding anymore.

Accepting questions and help. Sorry I forgot to do some pictures.

So how do you do this one? Looks like I need to replace mine (glazing) and possibly the idle pulley too.

Thanks!

If you can buy assenmacher special tool TOY 1914 it makes the job easier. Here are the steps.
1. Remove the radiator support opening cover.
2. Remove front fender cover Right Hand.
3. Remove Front suspension member reinforcement Right Hand.
4. Use the TOY 1914 and use the 19mm connect it to the tensioner to remove the Serpentine belt by turning clockwise the with in 3 seconds.
5.After removing the serpentine belt the installation is the same process/procedure when you remove the belt and other parts or the car.

By the way here are the tools needed.

1. 17 mm box wrench for the removing the bolts of the front suspension member.
2. 21 mm for the lug nut removal when you remove the front RH wheel.
3. 10mm socket removal of the front fender cover. flat screw for the removal of the plastic screws.

It will take an hour to finish the job. And you can search here in the forum the 2006 service manual for download. I just don't know how to copy paste it here. sorry about that.

Use a flat screw driver to pull out the middle.

yea i figured it out... i guess in my haste to rip those stupid things off i bypassed the simplicity of how they attach.. lol


Well... one new serpentine belt on.... easy job! Way less difficult than i thought. DIY beats paying someone $160 for such a simple job.
