Backing Plates and Idle Control Valve

Recommended Posts

I own a 1999 Toyota Corolla Liftback, 1.6 automatic. It failed last years MOT with one of the rear backing plates being corroded through. I was told that as an obsolete part to get it back on the road I would need to get the part from a breakers, which I did but real expense considering it wasn't in good nick but got the car through it's MOT. I may have a similar issue with the other rear backing plate. Just recently the Idle Control Valve is playing up. Again no chance of a Toyota part unless I have £200. I'm on many websites and can't find a patent part and neither can my garage. Otherwise my car is excellent. Has my car reached the end?

I'm not sure but I think you can just clean the ICV valves out and you might be able to get aftermarket backing plates that may be interchangeable with other Toyota's not tooo expensive on the likes of eBay might be worth checking
