Avensis How To Change Time?

6 posts in this topic

Hello, can anyone please tell me how to change the time on my 2004 1.8 Avensis?

One more query I have, the starter motor went on my car earlier today, I rushed to Europarts and got a replacement starter for £160, just about found a garage that would fit it today.

I got home, checked the starter motor price on Europarts online and discovered a discount code if ordering online that knocks 30% off, this takes the price from £160 down to £112 if using the click and collect service.

I am thinking of ordering another starter motor using this click and collect service with the discount code for £112 then returning it the next day using the old receipt where I was charged £160, would this work?

It's almost a £50 difference.

Worked out how to change the time myself thanks to all the numerous replies.

Got a result on the starter motor too. Used the 30% discount code to order a new starter motor online using the click and collect service, cost £112.

A couple of hours later I returned the starter motor with yesterdays receipt for £160, no problems.

If anyones interested you have to type in service30 in the gift/promo box on the Eurocarparts checkout webpage, this deducts the 30% discount.

Got the starter fitted for £40 straight after I paid £160 for it yesterday.

If you go to Eurocarparts in person you don't qualify for the discount.

If you book the part from the Eurocarparts website in advance and enter the discount code service30 you get 30% off.

That's why I reserved and purchased the starter motor today with the 30% discount, cost me £112.

I then returned the starter motor with yesterdays receipt and got the £160 I was made to pay yesterday refunded.

£48 saving.

Good result. I was going to Euro Car Part when my starter motor played up, but went to a specialist who rebuilt mine for £80.

Those who read my post a couple months ago will remember this, plus I removed/installed the starter myself.

On the Lean-burn engines the starter is behind the engine so access is a little tighter, and you have get under the car, unlike every other Avensis which is very easy in comparison, unless you don't have the correct extended socket bar.

A saving is a saving.
