  1. You need to remove the A pillar covers in order to lift the large dash cover piece. It's gonna be tricky at first as there are safety clips inside you need to unhook. They keep the panels in place in case of an airbag deployment. I used bent long nose pliers for that. Make sure you don't damage the airbags and replace the safety clips upon reassembly!
  2. I believe the surge caused by a bad battery connection triggers the malfunction. Last time it happened was on a hot summer day. Everything was hot so the bolts loosened a bit from the heat. As I turned the engine on, it started for a sec then stopped with total dark dash - complete blackout. Fastened the battery connection, engine starts - P/S dash light on, no servo. I drove home like that, then took the unit out for a few mins, put it back in again and it worked. Simply disconnecting the battery didn't affect it. It had to be completely disconnected on both occasions.
  3. Hello Dean, I've had this multiple times with my 2007 Auris. In my case it was caused by a short power surge/outage, probably a loose battery connection. The power steering ECU seems to be quite sensitive to that. What solved it was disconnecting P/S ECU for a few minutes - every connector on the unit. To do that the dash has to come off unfortunately, otherwise reaching all the connectors is very difficult. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Cheers, T
  4. Yes, it's very obvious which one 🙂 Mine looks like a desert compared to that, at least for now. I'll update tomorrow after the diagnostics
  5. I just went down to car to check. I don't really see any splatters around them. One looks a little different, but that doesnt seem like anything fresh. Looks more like oil spilled a while ago during changing it. The exhaust gas smell I get sometimes, but only when parking in reverse. I think it comes from outside as the reversing car goes through the diesel exhaust fume cloud it creates. If indeed the injector seal is the culprit, does it mean a replacement or just replacing the gasket?
  6. Holy... That sounds even worse than mine. Mine has almost 200k. Still the original injectors, glow plugs, etc.. I guess they have to wear out at one point. I'll plug the car onto a diagnostic computer tomorrow at work. Maybe it'll tell us something further. Does it increase with the rpm raising? Google Hilux death rattle on YouTube. That sounds similar too, and it's caused by a cracked piston. Hopefully that's not our case. Fingers crossed.
  7. Hey guys, My car started making this loud rattling sound yesterday out of the blue. Anyone experienced something similar? The car works fine, no power loss or anything whatsoever... Any idea? Thanks for your help in advance. Video here
  8. Hey Stewart, Check this one out -> http://toyota-corolla.ru/rm04f1ru/repair2/html/frame_rm00000227h004x.html It's in Russian, but Google Translate does the trick - 96 Nm / 71 lb-ft
  9. Sorry for the late reply. Yes it's a slomo video recorded with an iPhone.
  10. Hey Artiom, In my case it turned out the the other workshop (my regular one was closed for holiday) did something wrong when they put the engine back after installing the new gearbox. There's a support arm on the top of the transaxle case (for the intercooler air pipe I think) which they put back turned 180 degrees... Later my mechanic disovered and fixed this, and the vibration was gone. :)
  11. Haha that was me I guess. I learned it the hard way. Just make sure that the gearbox is the EA60 version. I've attached a chart I got from Toyota back then.
  12. Hey, Mine has an Avensis gearbox too :) As I recall from a 2006 model. My Auris is from 2007. It works. Just make sure that the donor car is the 177 hp version. 2.2's with less power have a slightly shorter 6th gear.
  13. That's exactly what I did! :) I got the short 6th in the Avensis transmission replaced. I contacted Toyota Customer support and asked for every detail of the EA6x gearbox family. They were really helpful, I got what I asked for in maybe two days. We checked, if it was possible, then a gearbox-specialist did the work. It wasn't even expensive, around 150 Euros for the labor (incl. gearbox overhaul).The parts were a bit pricy, almost 400 Euros... But it works well now. No sensors, or anything else had to be changed. This should have been done in the first place... Very high speeds? 140-150 km/h is usual here. See, I was late to the game. Glad it has all worked out and you have your car back. I thought that your original gearbox had a fault that was trashing your 6th gear, and since you had a good gearbox from the Avensis, change the ratio to Auris spec. I think the shift lights work from both revs and speed. Now with the right ratio, the shift indicator no longer lights once you are in 6th gear. Your issue was rare, and now any other owner will now know what can be done to fix the car. Yes, it did have the fault. Probably, as you also mentioned, it has some small deformation in the casing or whatever, which is enough to mess up the balance in there. The Avensis gearbox was bought as a replacement after the first failed repair, but it turned out to be short. After that, the first gearbox guy attempted a second, "warranty" repair on the original one. That worked for three weeks, then it trashed itself again... I lost the rest of my hope in that workshop then. Then came another transmission dude, and told us: "Don't even try to repair the old one again, it will just keep crashing. It's probably deformed. I had a similar case recently with a Legacy..." Then came up the idea of replacing the sixth in the spare one. I was lucky I couldn't sell it in the meantime... :D

  15. P1386 is also 5th injector malfunction (Injector for Exhaust Fuel Addition). Mine reads P2047 (Reductant Injector Circuit / Open (Bank 1 Unit 1), because the connector of the injector broke off during a gearbox replacement procedure. Then P2002 the same way he described it (few minutes of operation -> limp home mode), because the exhaust gas temperature doesn't get high enough.
