  1. As above, water ingress from the high-level brake light or aerial. Suggest the only remedy is to get them out and apply silicone gunge around them in an effort to keep the water out! All the best. B
  2. Hi, Interesting read.......... had the same issues this was the remedy, follow all videos!
  3. Had the wife's Aygo for 4 years, the back always leaked water, there is a video on You Tube by an old boy that covers it....Use gundge on the following : Take out antennna and use the mastic on the underside, do the same on the rear high level tail light. Buy the rubber self adhesive tubing refenced in the video, stick it to the door frames ( mine was a 2 door) and stick it on the rear glass hatch frame surround. as in double the existing rubber seals. Not expensive, not difficult......... just but a bit time consuming. It works.
  4. Mark, Good man, exactly what I needed! Regards, B
  5. Eygo, Many thanks for the reply, was gonna use red rubber grease ( I read it somewhere).any idea where the bushes are or is it gonna be obvious ( I'm replacing discs and pads at the same time.......) Thanks again, B..
  6. Got an issue with split front anti roll bar bushes on the wife's 07 Aygo, I've purchased replacement bushes from Euro car parts Anyone done the job previously, are the bushes easy to get at, anything to watch for, how long to do the job. Thanks in anticipation. B
  7. Further update......motor started making growling noises with stop/start action, made a few phones calls............eventually had a guy replace the motor ( I supplied the new motor via Eurocarparts) for £150! Job done ( He had to drop the clutch pedal!)
  8. I suggest yo apply some PTFE tape onto the wiper thread, makesit a lot easier when replacing the wiper again!
  9. Had a further look, the screws in question are plastic, can I just get a flat bladed screw driver under the head and lever them out?
  10. Many thanks for your reply Mick. Further to posting on the Club, I scouted around the net, where it was suggested the wheel arch ones are on plastic and are just pushed in.....or in this case I have to pull out!i I have everything loose apart from these two little buggers on the sides! I wa going to use a flat headed screwdriver and just lever them out! ( watching the Brackets as you suggest!) B
  11. Taking the front bumper off the wife's 07 plate aygo........everything ok apart from the wheel arch screws Are they philips, torx or do I just get behind them and pull them out.?Any assist would be appreciated as I have everything off bar the sides! o
  12. 24 hours and still working, who's the daddy?..............just hoping, I don't have to eat those words, They'll find me in a corner in tears Keeping my fingers crossed.......( and my wallet.crossed and closed........) Like a few words with the balloon that designed that heater motor on the triplets......eedgit!
  13. eygo, Aye, but only an Englishman can afford that, I'm only a poor Scot........ Thanks for all the input Guys B
  14. Okay further update. Put power the motor ..nothing..put power to the new heater .works, so nothing wrong with wiring........ Pulled the motor out as much as it will come before it hit the clutch pedal bracket.....then phoned a pal who suggested that the brushes might be stuck and holding off the commutator, sprayed down the electrical connection aperture with wd 40 and banged the back end of the motor with a hammer.hey presto, it's working.......... Here's hoping it will continue......I'll wait for a while before I resell the new Motor......... A word of advice if your Aygo Heater motor 3 days off to fix the bugger!.
  15. Please find the Post that covers the problematic issue........ Pray your Heater motor always works!

  17. K, Will get back to you once I establish how to post pics,
  18. kaliope, There ain't a lot of space either up or down ( not to say none!)........I keep looking at the motor through the front screen ( after I've wiped the tears from my eyes) I've messed with cars most of my life, I can do this, I can do this, it's just that I shouldn't have to do this to replace a !Removed! heater motor.......
  19. This is the nightmare it and pray for me............
  20. Eygo, I thank you for your reply but I know the script from this video by heart, my wife complained last night that I mumbled Aygo Heater Blower in her ear every time I made love to her last night..and if you believe that! The point is that this Video doesn't tackle the no space issue to get the !Removed! blower cuts to a extracted unit which is great if you've got the whole heater unit out of the car but had me in tears as it's doesn't complete the job for any normal guy working on the heater blower! B
  21. I left off on it today, I keep looking at the script from the guy that did it before, some of the bits require a 4/out of 5 tech guy, I ain't that guy. I fell asleep last night thinking about the job, I drifted into nod land with a 10mm spanner in my hand....., this is not right........... The clutch pedal bracket has to come off ( among a million other !Removed! things) I keep thinking of ways to pull the Motor up out of the dash without all that hassle........... Immediate issue is to release the motor...easy you say....huh, easy for you to say, I've got the wife's car in a million pieces in the front of the garage, I'm keeping watch in case some bad guys steal the wheels.........I don't want to do this job.....really don't!
  22. Don't mention the Toyota word to me................I can see me working on this all day, cursing the car with ever turn of a ratchet....... Can't even see how the connector comes off the motor .....grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
  23. Well, the top of the dash is off ( I used the You Tube Video as a guide ) Now the problem is that The You Tube video used a complete stripped out heater unit to illustrate replacing the heater motor, when in practise there isn't enough room to extract the motor as the top of the clutch pedal is in the way. I did see a blow by blow account from someone else confirming that you have to take all the lower dash off and the clutch pedal as well as move the steering column (I'm not kidding!) This is unbelievable! So I'm still looking at ways of short circuiting the above and will take the clutch pedal bracket off tomorrow ........not enjoying this! B.........
  24. Hi, Appreciate the thought, I should have started the job but I keep finding excuses to delay, Procrastination rules! I promise I will begin tomorrow AM........unless it's raining, unless it's too warm, unless there's an r in Thursday....... Thanks again, B ;
  25. Checked all the fuses in the engine Fuse box, all ok I could see how the 3 big clear topped fuses come out but confirmed they look ok. New motor arrived..£86 later There's nothing for it but to take out the dash, at least I have a previous Post as a prompt ...... I am not looking forward to this job...........anyone hearing bad language forgive me just the Scot coming out!
