  1. Cobh18, they installed it at the dealership, as they said that people, and even some dealerships, are still having bandwidth? problem to do the download themselves. My dealer had to consult another dealer to "borrow" the know-how from them.

  2. The hose on the pump may have come off. The pumps are behind the front bumper on the offside/right. Run the pump for several seconds and you might find a small pool of water on the ground just there.

  3. Have you checked the washer piping on the underside of the bonnet - may be a non-return valve (y-piece or similar) in the piping, which may be blocked or u/s.

  4. After finally finding a company who do an mp3/iPod adapter for the sat nav head unit I decided to go ahead and buy one. I've been searching for a good while now and am glad of the final result. The box contents are as follows: The small bag of black bits are for mounting the adaptor unit and iPod player on the dash. Not something I did. The adaptor itself: Firstly removing the head unit. There are other pics and details of removing the head unit in this forum, but I will add my pictures anyway. Pop of the head unit surrounds by carefully prising a blade underneath the plastic and pulling upwards. To be honest as soon as it starts to move you can finish off removing the plastic by hand. This will help eliminate any scratches to the surrounds. Do this for both sides. Then squeezing in the yellow clips on either side of the heating vents you can lift away and unplug the upper vent. To remove the unit unscrew the four 10mm bolts. 2 either side. Then again squezzing four yellow clips this time, gently pull the head unit away. With the head unit pulled away plug the wiring loom into the CD changer (black) socket. Then I attached the adaptor to the wiring loom to test it before putting it all back together. All worked fine. Location of adaptor unit: I decided to put the adaptor in the upper glove-box. I drilled a 20mm hole to allow the wiring loom plug to fit through. With the cable pulled through the kit comes with a plastic pug to neaten up the hole. I then tidied it up further by adding some cable sheath I have lying around. I attached the adaptor unit itself to the back of the glove box with velcro. The adaptor uses the CD Changer display on the head unit. Now with the adapter installed I can have all my music with me. According the spec' the unit can take up to 100gb hard drive. As long as it can be powered by a usb socket. so basically a laptop drive. Though I will stick to a usb flash drive for me, the iPod cable is for when the misses is in the car.

  6. Well Ive been running my old LED headlights since Mid October every day for at least 2 hours and I haven't any trouble what so ever. Absolutely love them. But as technology moves so do I.... I have now bought and installed new LED Headlights. These are Philips Luxeon LED's where as the old ones were Cree. These are now 4000 lumens each , before were 3000. Again I have been running these for about 6 weeks, 2 hours a day and again absolutely no issues. Thoroughly recommend.... And how it looks installed. No problems either as there is loads of room in and around the headlight housing.... I do notice a difference in brightness. Never need my Main beam now unless flashing someone. I have also checked my beam alignment and all is good. Never been flashed yet!!! My old ones are now my DRL's.....They work fine for that too. And also Dim to 30% at night with no issues.i.e flickering etc.....

  7. Contact your Toyota Dealer - My 59 Auris had this problem earlier in the year and Toyota sorted it all out. Andy

  8. I imagine that there is a small but measurable impact on fuel economy at speed. Possibly aesthetics (designers can be prima donnas) when not needed. The oem feet/bars are a neater solution & possibly more secure solution when they are needed with no chance of marking of the roof, albeit twice the price than 3rd party. Again, not a Toyota only thing - Audi, BMW, Ford, Vauxhall etc. The Mazda 6 Tourer seems to be 1 of the few still with a traditional roof rail as standard depending upon grade (i.e. you are paying for it as part of the grade) - the base grade doesn't have rails.

  9. Hello there, Couldn't agree more, it's great to have this forum. I've owned an Avensis for 2 and a half years now. When i was looking at buying it people told me about some problems but I've had none and can't even remember what the problems were suppossed to be, as a result of such trouble free motoring myself. If anyone finds any, it'll be here that it's talked about.
