  1. thank you very much joylove....because of your help, i have now managed to test my amp and it works perfect with my headunit and is remotely switched off too . Unfortunately, i'm now stuck in finding a way through the Firewall, so that i can feed the Amp's Power Cable...I've looked everywhere, but there seem to be no gromits or wires going to the engine. I don't want to drill, unless i can be certain that i'm not going to hit any vital component. Here is the link to the topic:- http://www.toyotaownersclub.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=137698 Any help? :dontgetit:
  2. hi guys, i'm trying to install a basic amp/sub in my Toyota Avensis Verso. The problem is that even after taking the glove compartment off, i can't find a gap from there to feed the power cable to battery. Here are some photos of the glove compartment and whatever is behind it. Any ideas guys of how i can take a wire through? http://www.toyotaown...lery/album/2179 Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
  3. Come on guys! Please help me! I'm desperate and was hoping this forum would be able to provide me with an answer :(

  6. hi guys, I have an Avensis verso which has a standard stereo. The current sound is okay, but i would like to add a small sub (6" x 2) to the boot. Now I know many of you will jump to say "get rid of standard stereo" and i couldn't agree more, but I would like to keep it for two reasons:- 1. My last car got broken in twice - costing me a lot of money to repair which i now can't afford 2. I'm not after a huge difference...simply want it a little louder and a little bit more bass. So therefore I would be grateful if someone could tell me:- 1. How can I add smallest sub woofer(s)? 2. Will I need an amp? 3. Would I have to make any changes or add any special adapters to the stereo? Thanks very much!
  7. thanks mistermena...i've already got the product - its called Innotec Turbo Cleaner, but i need someone to tell me where exactly the turbo is located and how i can access it. I showed it to my friend, but since he mainly deals with subaru and mitsubishi cars, he doesn't know much about the avensis. Can you or anyone please show me where i can find and access this turbo from to clean it?
  8. I'm sorry guys, but i'm going to have to keep BUMPING this thread as i desperately need a reply for my post on 28th feb.
  9. BUMP AGAIN! SORRY!
  10. hi guys, i'm sorry for not getting back earlier as i never not been online much. I've just had a look at paul's post regarding the sensor, which sounds promising. I have found a mechanic friend who is willing to try and fix this problem at his garage. But he's been very honest and said that he's never attempted to clean the turbo vanes before. He recommended exactly what Dale has already recommended which is to get the specialist cleaner and try to clean the turbo - but it sounds like a big job...i mean how does he get access to the turbo? Is the access easier on the ramp? Any advice or pics on how to do this job on a Toyota Avensis Verso? If the turbo could not be fixed, can it be removed/disconnected permanently and the car still be drivable? Also which is the easier to try first?...check sensor or clean turbo vanes?
  11. @ cabcurtains - thanks very much mate. It seems like its a big job . I'll see if i can find a reliable garage and i'll mention it to the mechanic to look at cleaning the Vane. @ dellboy7500 - thanks for that. What is the Vacuum sensing valve? Is it the one i tried to clean? Oh btw, does anyone know how much approximately it would cost if i had to replace the whole turbo?
  12. *********************UPDATE********************* hi guys, i have just managed to test the verso after spraying the hitachi sensor with the Electrical Contact Cleaner spray and would like to update you. When i was in 2nd gear, i hit the gas pedal to see if it still pulls back(limp mode) as though its about to stall. The bad news is it still did that, although after a bit the car speed suddenly kicked in and it was like it was a ferrari, lol! The good news is the car did not stall. Now where do i go from here? When i put my foot down on the accelerator, the car behaves as though its gonna cough and stall, but it then does kick into life and quickly gathers speed....its as though its got some sort of rubbish stuck in one of it's pipes that needs blasting out.
