  1. Facelift model had 1AD engine and it's auto tensioning on a sprung idler pulley. If that's not doing its job I think replacement is the only option. Ian
  2. Hi sauter, 06 is on the change for the 2.0 diesel engine, do you know which one yours has? Ian

    No worries, I've sorted it.

    1AD injector removal

    Good morning all, I decided to do the injector seals on my T25 today, and I removed the cam cover successfully, but the first injector I tried to remove looks like it's welded itself in and despite even using a small crowbar won't come out. If anyone has ideas or has experience removing these I'd appreciate the knowledge. Otherwise I'm thinking that it might be a case of see it back up and leave it until it dies, which given his right the injectors seen to be, might be a while. Pretty sure I've removed everything I need to, I do have the procedure from Toyota tech. Thanks for any help.

    LED Headlight Bulbs

    Nope I was talking about the car anyway if you read my earlier posts, however the original poster wasn't talking about e markers or any other euro-rubbish, he just wanted to know if it would pass the MOT and it likely will.

    LED Headlight Bulbs

    Same rules for bulbs.

    LED Headlight Bulbs

    Again I don't care. It's a safety issue for me, especially on the bike, they make a massive difference.

    LED Headlight Bulbs

    LEDs are not HIDs, and once they put the car on the beam checker and all looks well, they won't look any further.

    LED Headlight Bulbs

    If I can find suitable bulbs with a good break pattern I'll happily fit them because they will pass the MOT and not cause a problem to other drivers. I don't care about anything else.

    LED Headlight Bulbs

    If you check the new mot time rules you'll find that they mention hids only. LEDs do not feel, I have them in my motorbike which originally had h7 halogen bulbs fo fitted. I chose replacements that have very small LEDs therefore give very accurate beam pattern. I've found none that meet my requirements for an old Avensis though. No mot tester will remove your bill bulbs to check they are E marked!

    2012 avensis electric park brake problem

    I use only Techstream now, all the other stuff, at least in my price bracket, is inferior. You can find the adaptor ata reasonable price on flea bay, just don't try to flash the ECU with it! Regards Ian

    Is this blue/white smoke normal?

    Sorry, I got the wrong year, I did it from memory.

    Is this blue/white smoke normal?

    Blue smoke is indicative of oil burning, and once you've fixed your leak you'll be able to tell how much. Engine builds prior to march 08 have the potential for oil burning and associated head gasket issues. I didn't see from your earlier posts the year of your vehicle. It only takes a tiny amounts of oil to turn the exhaust gas blue, and the engine has already survived for 133k so you may never have a problem if you keep it topped up. If it is 08 or prior it's most certainly not cost effective to fix.

    ABS goes in every now and then when stopping.

    I just gave the front edge of the flange a good tap with a hammer from each side and that loosened it up.

    Wipers not working

    I don't have a wiring diagram for the Gen 3 but most often these days the 2 speed and park are fine through the relay. If look at that first, check the connections maybe reseat it and go from there. If you can get pinouts for the motor and relay you might be able to do some testing with a multimeter.
