  1. Here's Taz's main thread (15 pages of good stuff showing development from stock Scion to fully customised; lots of pics 😉) Taz's Scion iQ I can hardly believe it's now 2 years since his last post. Hope it gives you some inspiration !! Dave
  2. Hope the manifold replacement sorts it... and welcome to the Club !! Dave
  3. That's a bummer. Any sign of fresh damage in the video to suggest the mechanic might have caught the radiator with a spanner while replacing the manifold? Perish the thought...
  4. Manifold/EGR valve replaced today by local dealer. Job took just over 3 hours. First iQ they've had in for fitting of the replacement parts on this 'campaign'. Can't say I've detected any improvement in drivability, but ours was never bad anyway, and have been using Redex regularly for the last 18 months. Important to me is that I no longer have the worry of a £900 repair bill hanging over me should performance have degraded at some point in the future due to clogged EGR valve. So a feeling of relief that this 'ticking time-bomb' is now resolved without any cost to me... Dave
  5. Parts are currently available in Toyota's UK warehouse and will be installed on mine next month. Full day job... Glad Toyota are now rectifying this 'ticking time-bomb' as it is this very issue which was affecting my confidence in long term ownership.
  6. You seem to be referring to a Prius which probably has a different design setup to the iQ. Additionally, if Toyota are changing these items as part of a service campaign (at no cost to me), why do a DIY 'fix'
  7. I trust I don't need a Toyota service history to qualify for this campaign. Last 2 services have been done independently. Can anyone confirm? Dave
  8. Hi Lee Do you know if this includes replacement of the (well known problematic) EGR valve? Dave
  9. Yeah, that's the tonneau cover to hide luggage when the seats are folded down. Did you check the expiry date on the tyre repair sealant. Bet it's out of date (like ours!!).
  10. It's worth trying any reputable brand injector cleaner. You add a small amount each time you fill the tank with fuel. I believe the first signs of a blocked EGR is a lack of power when pulling away from rest and hesitation in take-up of engine revs when power is required
  11. Slow down !! You only need to add around 1/8 of a bottle with each fill-up....
  12. Been protecting our 59 plate 3 cylinder with Redex (with the original EGR valve) and it drives just fine
  13. Welcome Phil. I'm sure you'll get a lot of pleasure from driving around in your iQ. Had ours for 5 years and still going strong.
  14. Very neat, I do like those; tell us more (where from, how fitted, how much) Dave
  15. That is funny, but glad you got it sorted.
