  1. Update you guys were right it was a pipe that had come loose somehow. So it was the pipe when you remove the black engine cover to the right there’s quite a large pipe that goes into engine I think and that was loose. Put a new clip on and it’s perfect again. thank you again for the advice
  2. Lol, yeah I need to update it the Ravs now gone and will be replaced with a Rav. We had C-HR Excel up until last week too but the PCP finished and we’re still deciding Rav or the new Corolla crossover. In the meantime the Yaris belonged to a member of the family who’s had it from new so will be using this.
  3. We’ve only just recently bought this one as a temporary car to replace the Rav but we’ve had it for about a month now and it spends most of its time on the motorway and it’s only happened today but thank you for your reply I will ask someone to check for me
  4. I don’t have a clue about cars or where to look 😩 but thank you for the advice I’ll ask my neighbour who’s a bit more knowledgeable than I am.
  5. Coming back on the M1 today I noticed the car started making a whooshing noise on acceleration. There’s no loss of power or speed just makes the whooshing noise when you accelerate. When I left the motorway it wa a fine unless I put my foot down and then it does it again. Would be grateful for any advice. TIA
  6. I’ve noticed on the last two fill ups my MPG is coming down. I’ve not changed my driving style or anything else I can think of. A full tank would show a range of 462 miles or thereabouts and I’d get somewhere 58-62 mpg mainly local. At the moment I’m now getting the same range showing but it drops like a stone and the mpg is 38-43 mpg. The only thing I can think of is the climate control. I normally switch it on when the engine temp has risen. I’ve now done 8K miles since I bought the car. Anyone else had similar issues?
  7. I noticed earlier today after updating my iPhone I nowhave the option of replying to text messages on the screen. Before the update that option wasn’t there you were just able to read the message. also noticed the google street view is no longer working on the navigation screen.
  8. As far as I’m aware of you don’t have a spare transponder key you won’t be able to program it. Not sure but maybe worth looking at getting the whole system from a breakers but like I said I’m not sure if this would work. auto locksmith maybe able to reprogram it to your transponder but it won’t be cheap. Toyota would charge around £1100 for a new system. Speak to some local auto lock smiths they would be your best bet
  9. That great thank you I’ve managed to do it after a lot of head scatching. 👍🏼
  10. Hi I’ve been trying to adjust the volume on the day nav md not having any joy. Grateful for any advice thanks
  11. Thanks Pete really appreciate your advic e
  12. What’s the best way to do it then? I’m trying to be as light footed as possible but then feel I’m driving slow as you always get someone on tailgating. I think practice should perfect it see how it goes. I’ll update in a week or so
  13. Hi Thanks Pete I’ll do that. I really do like the car at the moment I’m struggling to keep it in electric mode as it thinks I’m heavy footed so need to practice more with that too. Is that something that you experienced too?
  14. I picked the C-HR up yesterday will try it out over the weekend shopping trip. Seen a few videos and it looks easy but as you say just need to be careful
