Low suspension height - need new trim clips!


Recommended Posts

Our 2014 Yaris rides quite low.  It looks cool but on our little unmade lane it always scrapes at the front no matter how slowly you reverse out.  It's only done 29k so I can't believe the front springs are that tired yet.  Potholes will do it also.  Just wondered if anyone else gets this and also what the Toyota part number is for the clips that secure the long thin black plastic trim under the front.  A link for the correct size aftermarket fixings would do just as well (they probably won't be there that long!)   They are the square section plugs that take an 'acme' style screw.

Perfect!  Thanks. 🙂   If anyone does have a height measurement, say from the front valence to the ground of a similar model I'd like to compare.  👍

Just checked. My 2014 Icon+, 1.33l petrol with Multidrive (CVT), nobody in the car and on a very, very slight slope back to front, is 128mm on the centreline of the car. 3/4 tank of fuel and full size spare wheel in the boot. All 175/65R15 tyres at 34psi.

Be prepared for a rear hub issue then!:ninja:

Have you owned the car from new ? Is it a sport model ?

It's a 2014 1.33 Icon handily the same as pj's but a 6 speed manual.  Just measured it and it's bang on 128mm too!  Thanks for that.  I've recently serviced it and the bearings were fine unlike my daughters Mk 1 spirit a while back.  Quite an effort to get off!
