    Yaris windscreen washer nozzle

    On the latest Yaris, the jet should be spraying parallel with and above the arm/wiper blade; hitting the screen (at rest) slightly to the driver's side from the centre of the blade itself. This avoids washing the car to your left (lol) and allows somewhat for the wind pressure when the car is in motion...

    Yaris Hybrid winter tyres.

    Totally agree with your phrase "like the brown stuff to a blanket"😉 . I have the same tyres on my Yaris Hybrid and wouldn't be without the grip they provide on icy and slushy roads. Having lived in Northern Germany in the past, I don't like being prevented from going anywhere just because of a bit of snow and/or ice. Standard tyres are complete rubbish once you show them a hint of ice and snow; especially economy versions with low rolling friction figures. They are lethal on ice... I have always owned a winter set of tyres for every new car I have had. Wouldn't be without them.

    Speaking of Hybrid Assistant, I'm loving Alessandro's sense of humour today! [emoji6] Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    How do I improve Yaris Hybrid Excel dipped headlight

    I'd go for the Toyota Optiwhite bulbs mentioned above. Massive improvement over the standard bulbs fitted on the Yaris.

    Bluetooth issue

    In your first post, you talked of voice "distortion" and then this last post tells that they are all at "max"? Perhaps turning the phone outgoing down a couple of notches would fix the problem?

    Bluetooth issue

    It was adjustable on my 2014 Yaris? It's on this screen... (phone volume - outgoing) It is reached, rather unintuitively, from setup, general, volume settings! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Bluetooth issue

    Don't know what screen you are talking about but I am on about the main system settings screen? (nothing to do with setting any kind of code...) Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Did you find and turn up the mic volume settings on the head unit yet?

    Hell Is Buying a Used Toyota...

    Excellent post and some salutary tales! Our dealer here, has been better than that so far. However, today, we got an early morning wake up call from them! I didn't recognise the voice but he sounded very young and a bit nervous. He then proceeded to explain to us that they had this super duper new piece of software that was able to work out the right time for customers like us to change our car for the best price! Yeah right!! He went on to suggest that we could have the exact same car to the same spec brand new and only need to pay an extra £40 more per month than we are paying now!! [emoji848] So I said to him, "Now let me get this straight? You want me to buy the exact same car that is not actually an upgrade from what we have now and pay more for it?" His response? "Well, you will be getting a brand new car."! Since he hadn't bothered to do his homework properly, I didn't bother to remind him about the main road tax dodging reason why we had changed to our current car when we did last year!

    Rattle in the driver's door internals

    We had this kind of sound in our previous Yaris Hybrid (Excel) and the dealer removed the driver side door card and found that the wiring loom inside the door had not been correctly anchored down. Once this was corrected, buzzing/rattling stopped. Done under warranty. Sent from my Pixel C using Tapatalk
