  1. Petrol for me, was told by a good friend of mine who runs a independent Toyota garage petrol ones like said above are bomb proof, diesel Rav will have at some point , turbo, ecu or clutch flywheel problem in his experience. Also said above only thing I don’t like about my petrol auto Rav is a lack of spare wheel, managed to get a space saver but no where to store it .
  2. Excellent, very handy to know 👍
  3. No problem mate, I’ve known Ian at Roy’s for over 25 years and I’m sure he would give you advice for nothing in return but know what you mean . I know you need a special tool to slacken the tensioner to be able to get belt off, as there’s no room to get anything on it, Roy’s put belt on my last Rav as I couldn’t get on the tensioner.
  4. Why not give Ian a ring at Roys motor company he will probably give you some help over the phone, they know all about toyotas . www.roysmotorcompany.co.uk
  5. That’s a good price .
  6. These were like the ones I had which the jack would not fit . https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/222702095812
  7. I fitted some aftermarket ones which looked ok until I came out one day and I had a puncture, went to remove the wheel and couldn’t use the scissor jack as wouldn’t fit with them fitted luckily I was in my drive and used a four wheel jack but if I had been out somewhere else would have had a problem, think genuine ones You can still jack up ok.
  8. Yep agreed, only thing shows every little mark and soon gets dust laying on it but nice when clean .
  9. Done my hilux today , washed clay barred, meguairs swirl away and then mirror bright wax 2014 plate came up ok.
  10. I had a Lexus RX400H which I didn’t use much , hybrid, and had it plugged into a trickle charger for years with no problem, I also have a 2003 MR2 roadster with 13k on clock which I’ve had for several years and only drive when very dry that too has a trickle charger again with no problems. As my post above I use to use a solar charger for the RX when I went away on holiday and left at airport that was made by AA which used to work very well.
  11. I have this one eBay number 223959419170 I used to use it every time I left my Lexus RX400h at the airport as the small battery was useless, worked a treat and connected to the OB2 port inside the car which was easier .
  12. Brilliant! Always good when you can sort yourself , can’t go to far wrong with G10 nice and fine cutting compound always handy to have around. Plenty of time now to keep our cars clean. All best stay safe. If not deep Damp sponge pad with a little fargela g10 rub by hand allow to dry and buff off , polish afterwards . If deeper use g3 first then the g10 and polish . Just do it damp don’t allow pad to get hot . Farcela g3 removes deeper scratches but best to use G10 afterwards to remove finer scratches have used both for years both excellent and recommend by a good friend of mine who’s a top paint/body shop guy.
