I have a 2005 Toyota Camry. I’m trying to replace the flasher relay. I tried searching for a video showing me how to do this, but had no luck.
It’s located here on the car:
Now let me describe this. This appears to be some sort of plastic molding that multiple electrical connectors are held in to. There appears to just be a wire harness going to this thing that the relay gets connected to. I tried to wiggle, I tried to pull, I tried to yank, and I can’t get the darn thing out! Seriously, I had no luck. I tried on the relay side. I can’t get my hands around the connector for the wire harness to try and pull the wire harness from the relay. It’s way to tight! Also I have a Chilton book and it confirms that it’s the correct relay. The only issue is that it just says disconnect the cable harness from the relay and then remove the relay. Doesn’t say how or provide details. I’m relay struggling with this. I tried to figure out how the clear white plastic piece is secured to the vehicle, to see if I could remove it to get a better angle at this thing, but couldn’t figure out how to disconnect it from the vehicle. Here are some pictures. Thanks for any help, or point me to a video on how to do this for THIS CAR. I see lots of other cars, this is much simpler. I believe 2002-2006 camry are all similar.
Notice the two red circles. I think the empty one is identical to the one that is holding my relay in. No wonder it’s so hard to remove this thing! I don’t see how I can do it!
It would seem that I have to remove the relay with the cable harness still connected to it from the white clear plastic molding thing (red circle is holding it in) then I should have a easier time to just disconnect the relay from the connector for the cable harness. But I don’t see how to do this.
