  1. Pls help me identify this suspension? part

    That's a drop link. I would also check your brakes as well if it's screeching Drop links normally cause knocks and bangs when broken however that has a split boot which means it needs changing but is not broken but will seize up pretty fast. Also on a note what Auris do you have and what coilovers do you have on
  2. HID Kit

    Just as good as HID and a thousand times better than the poor excuse of headlight bulbs that come as factory ... When I replaced mine I was shocked to see osram written on the back of the factory bulbs
  3. Help what's happened

    P1386 is for the DPF injector. I wonder if they have knocked the sensor during removal of the top sensor. Did they check the DPF content level.
  4. HID Kit

    No taking bumpers off I ran non canbus LED and HID in my auris no issue Now run purely LED ... Much prefer them over HID ... Easier to fit less messing about
  5. HID Kit

    I run LEDs in my side light no flickering Definitely no pulse like my vectra lol I run LED dipped beam as well now but we have no issue with that at MOT in England due to the way the rules are written. But all my lights are LED. There's no stupid Canbus like the Vectra Either.
  6. Auris SR180 engine issue

    Have you had the fuel filter changed it could be trying to clean the DPF
  7. Auris T180 New 'Saust'

    Have a word with Tony banks exhausts ... They do amazing work and good prices as well
  8. Poor horn

    I've fitted a truck horn in mine ... Let's just say it has the desired effect
  9. Auris T180 New 'Saust'

    It doesn't fit seen someone with them after spending more than a custom backbox would cost they got it to fit ... Just go custom it's cheaper and generally a better finish.
  10. Oil maintenance required soon - really?

    I'd change it as the service intervals are 12k anyway, personally I change it earlier every 8k. When was it last serviced If it's only got 16.5k on it has it had any servicing done as it should have been serviced once and had the oil changed twice by now
  11. Just having a moan - SR180

    I know this pain .... Rattle is probably a heat shield ... And it was my centre silencer that was giving me problems with grinding out
  12. Foot well lighting kit

    I fitted aftermarket and have done on a few cars some to the roof light for door opening and some to a secondary source for when you switch the lights on
  13. Auris SR180 in trouble?

    And the 2.0 also just was less prone ... Most have been fixed so I wouldn't worry about that too much tbh
  14. Auris SR180 in trouble?

    Tbh sounds like your being a little over cautious ... Take the box off ... See if the consumption continues ... But I doubt it's related. Also if it was the head and the oil had gone you would be either very smokey or the coolant would have gone a funny colour... Daft question but have you reset the average MPG between fills and what fuel are you using ... As for clutch slip that could just be a worn clutch. 80k is nothing in original clutch on over 80k but I'm laughing at the same time ... It's as tight as it was when we got it ... Cleaning the EGR is good practice and does make a difference
  15. Little power than all

    EGR clean, DPF regenerate, could be a number of things have tbh
