  1. Hi all, My wife has the 2015 Aygo Xcite 2 in orange. When i clean the car and at the weekend I notice what I thought was a small piece of black tape hanging off the rear bumper. When I moved it with the sponge i noticed it was the rear bumper paint. Does anyone have any experience of this and Toyotas' response before I take it to the dealership. ps I only use a bucket & sponge and hose pipe to clean the car so no pressure washer blasting at the bumper.
  2. Hi all, Just to let you know we suffered from a knocking noise from the rear in my wifes 2015 Aygo X-cite. After removing everything from the rear it still did it so when it went for its first service last week I mentioned the TSB in this post and got the rear shocks changed without any problem. Knocking noise has now gone.
  3. Sorted ! EGR valves stuck open. Had to have it replaced + ecu update = £550 On the plus side the car now goes better than it has ever had in the last 2 and a half years.
  4. Did Toyota do a diagnostics check and get a fault code ? My Auris SR180 developed an engine light and vsc light and went into limp mode on Thursday. It has shown code P2002 DPF problem but first I am having the EGR valve cleaned as it may be stuck open which may prevent the DPF from regenerating.
  5. Had my 2008 Auris SR180 now 2 and a half years , its done 62000 miles and I have done 30000 miles in it, has full Toyota service history,used Shell V Power and now the Nitro+ every week , top up oil with Mobil 1 ESP and it still goes into limp mode !!!!

  7. Brought mine with the Toyota motorsport package already fitted.
  8. Is it just me but as soon as Toyota have any recall regardless of which country it is in it makes headline news in the press and tv. General Motors have now recalled around 15 million vehicles this year for numerous safety issues resulting in 13 deaths and 47 accidents which they admit to and all you see is a little post on the BBC News website under the business section. And another thing , Toyota agreed to pay 1.2billion dollars fine for faults and General Motors fined 39m dollars for 13 deaths ! Rant over.

    Don't mean to sound negative , but every mod needs declaring on your insurance and it could become expensive.
  11. Hi Seth , regarding your interior lights not working In the engine bay there is a large fuse box between the air box and the LH wing. Take the lid off and on the LHS column of fuses 4th from the back there should be a large white/creamy coloured short pin. This is removed at the factory and placed in the middle of the fuse box next to the fuse picker. This is removed to prevent the battery running flat if a door is not shut properly at the dispatch yards. It is possible that it may have not been put back into its position .I think if you look on the inside of the lid it is called a DCC SHORT. Hope this helps. Steve.

  14. Hi, I had the same problem last summer . I've got a 2005 2.0 petrol and my drivers side wouldn't get cold. Had a mobile air-con company to come out and the pressure had dropped due to me not using it often enough.It took more than one attempt to re-gas before getting cold.It is fine now.
  15. Hi all , Got a SR180 and so far so good. I live somewhere inbetween the Toyota dealers in Derby and Ilkeston and was wondering if anybody has had an engine replacement done at any of these or anywhere in the East Midlands. Just like to use someone who knows about this concern as i have seen posts where some dealers have denied all knowledge. Cheers Steve.
  16. Hi all, This is the first diesel i have ever owned. When say for example , you are approaching an island or a junction and haven't had to come to a stop , i change down to second gear then when i go to pull out and the revs are around 1000revs the car appears really sluggish until around 1500 / 2000 revs then it takes off. Is this normal for a diesel ? I had the 40,000 miles Full Service Plus done by Toyota in Sept and asked them to clean the egr valve as well.
  17. Must be the time of year . Brought my SR180 in April and was getting between 38-50mpg depending on roads.Now its December can only get around 32-36mpg.
  18. According to the tyre pressure label which is on the pillar when you open the drivers door , the fronts are 36psi and the rears are 32psi ........if you are driving under 100mph of course !
  19. No need to take door panel off , use a flat screwdriver or butter knife and lever out the switchbase and then disconnect the connector.It is only held in place by a spring clip.
  20. Same as Uncle Buck , mainly A / B roads averaging low 40's but at the weekend just did a 20 mile journey home along the A6 in Derbyshire , a mixture of 30,40 & 50 mph roads and averaged 50.2mpg.
  21. My will be part of the recall but thats no problem. What winds me up is that a few days earlier honda recalls over 500,000 CR-V's for sticking drivers door switches including 70,000 in the UK. Did that make the news ?
  22. Hi all, Can someone clarify the D4D DPF regeneration issue. I have a 2008 SR180 and i was wondering if the DPF automatically regenerates itself after so many miles if you are not able to give it a run over 15 mins at high speed.
  23. Only the 1.4 diesel will be available in the UK. The 2.0 D4D Auris will be made at Burnaston but only in LHD.
  24. Hi all , I mentioned the other day that i had brought a SR180 with full service history. It has done 32000 miles with the 10 , 20 and 30000 service done by Toyota. As the car is 4 years old but has only had 3 services do you think this would count as full service history if anything happened to the head gasket. Cheers.
  25. Hi, This is the car i purchased in April. A 2008 model with 32000 miles on the clock with full Toyota service history. Toyota motorsport body kit , leather interior and touchscreen sat nav.Early days but so far , so good !
