  1. Invite the dealer to take it for a drive with you as passenger. let them show you "how to change gear proper".

  2. I like this valves, but you can consider this kind of invisible valves as well.

  3. But you can't adjust the revs correctly. I had my mot done last month and it was £35 and obviously passed no worries. The brake test is the same as any car and there is no emissions test for the reasons already given. The Prius can be serviced and mot'd as normal, though considering the number of numpties I've come across who can't disengage the handbrake, or actually start the car is mind blowing. When I take the car in for tyres I'll ask if they want me to explain the handbrake etc and I get a knowing tut and raising of eyebrows. Five minutes later they sheepishly come back to the waiting room as ask how they start the car, only to be told it's already running!?! If they're that stupid, you really don't want them doing an oil change! Tyre fitment is one thing, anything else is for a TRUSTED garage and their best mechanic OR your friendly main dealer.

  4. Dust caps are part of the valves, yes. Please take a look to understand what I'm talking about:

  5. No can-bus in avensis before 2009 and not sure about the later one. Leds are good to go, just notice the more powerfull the better cooling it has to have, if 2 LED's are at the same power and one has aluminum radiator go with this one in that case it will last longer and be better built.

  7. Hi Stu from Worlds End (I know where that is!) . . . Do what Don suggests. Also, if you have a multimeter, do the following: 1 Connect up one battery terminal as normal. 2 With second terminal disconnected, set the meter to Amps and connect it between this terminal and the disconnected battery lead. The meter will now read any current flowing out of the battery. 3 Make sure EVERYTHING on the vehicle is switched off (lights, ignition, interior lights, radio...) and check the meter reading. It should be almost zero. 4 Switch meter to Milliamps (1000x more sensitive). The current flowing out of the battery should be around 50mA maximum, possibly as low as 10-20mA. Anything more than 50mA, and something somewhere is gradually flattening your battery. Usual suspects are interior light (not going out), alternator (faulty component - check the current drain in same method as above, but pull the vehicle fuse marked ALT, which fuses the "permanent live" to the alternator, and isn't cut off by the ignition switch), radio/alarm (pull fuse to check). In fact, if you have an unhelpful current drain, then pulling fuses one at a time helps to pin it down. Some neighbours of mine (petrol RAV same as yours) had the same fault last year. An idiot automotive "electrician" had replaced the 3-pin connector to the alternator, and managed to reverse two of the cables! Same result: battery flat after 2-3 days. Obviously, this couldn't happen twice!? Good luck, Chris
