  1. Can anyone help with a parts diagram for an Auris Touring 1.4 Diesel (manual), and the relevant engine guards (old money sump guard trays) that are made of plastic. I think there is more than one tray/guard? Mine has truly died and beyond repair and need to source replacement if anyone can help, annoyingly I can’t get under the car until up on ramp, but would like to start the hunt for Best Buy for garage to fit. thanks in advance.
  2. Would that be Covered by the “ten year” warranty if serviced through the new ten year warranty scheme if the customer complains ?
  3. Have you got Toyota to replace the headlights under warranty (existing recall for them) ?
  4. My usb failed on My aygo, claimed under warranty and replaced, could faulty ?
  5. Still looking so annoyed that so many dealers (often the same few) keep listing “premium pack” when they actually mean “protection pack” when challenged. I am amazed Toyota don’t crack down on blatant false advertising (mini rant over) Anyway hunt continues ….
  6. Apart from mechanical and paint make sure the maps are up to date
  7. Talking about (good) comedy quotes, we have 14’ plate Aygo, cost to change for the whole year to a Rav4 Hybrid Excel AWD was… £15 for the whole year extra ! Simply crazy (same policy to swap for a BMW140i was £17 ! ). I must be old now !
  8. I took up this at the time silent “offer”, and yes it really did make a difference getting them swapped out. also I replaced the bulbs with Philips X-tremeVision Pro150 HIR2 (Single), and this alongside the physical unit made a massive difference. and re the seat heaters, I’ve had both heating units replaced under warranty and that again made a BIG difference the heated seats now work correctly all the time.
  9. You can purchase the map updates for around £35 from eBay, easy to follow and genuine update. plus a £3 USB stick 16gb FAT32 from amazon. Take around 45 mins inc laptoptime. or you can pay Toyota around £150 for same thing
  10. Just had 2 quotes from dealers for Rav4 AWD Excel Premium both quoting Jan 23 for info if ordered this week.
  11. Hunt continues, a couple of false hopes with main dealers advertising as “premium pack” then when contact made “oh no it doesn’t have the panoramic roof”… frustrating.

    Maps update

    Thanks - seems very similar to the Auris before they removed the toolkit, then the webpage link then removed it all with no notice (separate rant) to customers. I’ve always opened for USB always seems a safer transfer of data anyone know the cost IF it’s past the 3 years (I note my Auris is able to get the eBay £30 map updates via USB which is way cheaper than the £150 dealer fee for one update) Wonders post 3 years old if any service plan like Honda/BMW inc the maps
  14. Thanks you have reassured me, and my thoughts of getting out of my mates Disco which I always got more mud on me that way.

    Maps update

    Reading an old thread @FROSTYBALLS if I purchase a second hand 2 year old Rav4 does that mean I would get the last year of map updates at not cost for the vehicle ? If so how? thanks in advance.
