  1. There are a number of recalls on the go where the recall has been announced but there are no parts or technical instructions available yet. In that case please wait until you receive your letter, it may take a while depending on the outcomes available
  2. There is one very simple fix, it involves booking it in at your dealer and having them replaced for free, simples ;)
  3. and why would you do that?
  4. I know I would say this but............ I cannot see why anybody would risk their 5 year warranty, especially on a Hybrid, for only a small saving on dealer over independent costs. If you do go independent, make sure you compare apples with apples, IE, make sure correct oils and the like are used, I'm sure you will find the costs comparible
  5. In order to maintain your car for warranty, you will need to have the correct service schedule carried out at the correct time/mileage, which means having the full service every 20K. You do not need to have this done at a Toyota dealer, BUT you must keep all receipts and ensure the correct procedure is followed, oils used etc. The Toyota fixed price service promise is a competitively priced way of having your car maintained. You also get a free hybrid health check when the service is done at your dealer, something that wont happen at an independent garage
  6. Our T180 kit fits all T180's, Avensis, RAV etc but I cannot vouch for other manufacturers
  7. Yes, its a standard type manual gearbox with an automatic actuator to control the clutch
  8. I have logged in OK, there is also an app you can use
  9. It means there is a recall outstanding and possibly other "special service campaign work" that needs doing. SSC work is not a recall, but things that Toyota will do to your car for customer satisfaction purposes, it is usually done whilst in for service, no need to take it specifically to be done, check with your dealer
  10. There you go! Sometimes when a new recall is announced, it can take a week or two for the website database to be updated, check again soon just to make sure. Like I said, if your car is affected, you will be written to by Toyota in the fullness of time. For instance, the current air bag recall will take maybe 18 months or more, there are so many cars affected, so the letters go out in batches, otherwise the dealer network are bombarded from day one and there would be no resources / parts to be able to fix the vehicles affected
  11. As with all recalls, people jump to conclusions about how many and what models are covered in a recall. The best thing to do is check your car on the Toyota recall checker (for UK) It may be a short while whilst current affected models are uploaded, but you can find it here If your car is affected, you will be written to when the parts become available, which may take some time to sort out Kingo
  12. You wont decode the build date yourself, PM me the full reg I will tell you the build date
  13. I have PM'd the price, carriage is fairly static price up to 15KG so no worries there. The Genuine clutches are, as you would expect top quality, just be careful if looking around, you want a decent "branded" kit, dont be temped into some never heard of kit otherwise you might be doing it again in no time at all Kingo
  14. Just go to your local dealer and buy the bolts and ring, the bolts are a few quid and the ring is £15 plus VAT, or I can mail order them to you (plus carriage charge) Kingo
  15. Correct!
