  1. PLEASE HELP, just removed the sunroof from my 2001 Celica. I'm pretty sure there is no problem with the motor, can hear it trying to move. I have a second hand sunroof with no motor. I have removed the two bolts holding the motor on to the frame, but still can't detach the motor, looked at the other frame and it appears that there was only two bolts holding the motor. PLEASE HELP.

    I don't remember bleeding the rears much, I give the fronts plenty. That something quite simply I could try. Thanks. Rear brake pipes are still original. Pins in good working order and new carriers on the rear. Thanks

    They don't feel any different to the ones on the other side. When I put new pads in I cleaned them up and they seemed smooth. Maybe I'll try to post a couple of pics when I take the wheel off.

    Thanks, taken pins out and given a good lube. Callipers are fairly new. (Reconditioned) after a short drive passenger side disc is differently hotter, but not really bothering me when I'm driving and not pulling to one side either. When it stop raining perhaps I'll do another disassemble.

    The drivers side retracts fine passenger side sticks a bit. When I've had it in the air the passenger side doesn't turn freely. Nothing being picked up on the back ones in the mot.

    Thanks, the discs aren't that old but I did put new pads on. Is the a possible it could be the master cylinder?

    With regards to the brake issue there does seem too be a little binding on the front passenger side. Yes I'm using the key fob.

    What happens is when I unlock the door and open it after about 2 seconds there's a clicking and the alarm sounds, hazard lights flashing and interior light on. I then start the car then after about 30 seconds the alarm goes off and then drive as normal. Which ever door I open sets the alarm off including the boot. I've attached a picture is this the switch you are referring to?

    Can't quite remember figure with the imbalance but it's more or less a fail. I think he lets it through because he knows me so well and can see what I've done. I thoroughly cleaned and greases the sliding pins, are the carriers the stainless steel bits on the callipers if so there done. Thanks for the offer on the sunroof parts may take you up on that, is it worth taking my apart first? See what's what. Just realised what the carriers are I did change one side that felt sticky (second hand part)

    I've got two unrelated issues that someone might be able to help me out with. Firstly it's a brake bais passenger front side grabbing stronger than other. I've changed both calipers, discs and the rubber brake hoses. Issues still there don't really notice it when I drive but it's picked up every mot. Any help? Secondly car alarm going off when I open the door driving me mad!! Just thought of another one sunroof when I try to open it can here a clicking but zero movement, tried forcing it but no joy. Would be great to have it ready for the summer, any suggestions much appreciated. Thanks. 2001 Celica by the way.
