  1. Hi all, I have been following this forum for the last 3 or 4 years as thats when I bought my first prius gen 2 2007 uk spec tspirit. The car has been amazing so far only needing the front two wheel bearings. The front left was replaced nearly 8 months ago. Yesterday doing about 20 mph just after coming off a motorway going around a round about, the car dash lights including check brakes, vsc and hand brake lights came on. Not the big triangle light. There was also a noticeable loss in braking power. Fortunately, no one was in front of me, i managed to pull over. I couldn't tolerate the beep
  2. I had just written a very long reply but my giant fingers got in the way and clicked a few buttons and ruined it all. I was having the perfect rant. 🙂 I own two cars, Honda Jazz 2005 and prius Gen 2 2007.They are both on the target list for these thieves. couple of things, my car is now in a garage having an aftermarket cat conv fitted. Its setting back £350. Plus the hassle is thrown in for free. Also the sheet that Konrad has posted was for a Gen 3. Also the mechanic just rang. My car is ready, he is charging 350. The O2 sensor is OEM (i think denso are the suppliers or Bosch
  3. Thanks Mate. Appreciate the quick response.
  4. Good morning All, Its been a long time since I have been here. I used to be an avensis owner but then switched over to a prius after my car got totalled by a sleepy driver a few years ago. But back in here to make a point and possibly revive an old post. I am good friends with @Konrad C. He is a regular here and I used to be as well until my life was taken over by family, work, work and some more work. :). A long time ago, a sticky was made of a post someone had written. It was called the spirit of TOC. This was done to thank people who helped members out when things were not going w

  7. Can you lift the bonnet up and try and narrow it down? Regards Waqar Sent from my SM-N9005 using Tapatalk
  8. Prius here. Gotta remember to press brake pedal Sent from my SM-N9005 using Tapatalk
  9. You can also take out a switch from under the rear seats left hand side where the fuel tank is located. At least that's what I did. From what I recall when I was watching a video on it, the relay is located on the left hand by the passenger legs under the dash board. I might be wrong but that's what I remember from a video.

  10. Hello All and Konrad, Sorry it took so long to write back. Konrad helped me change oil on my car. It was one of the easiest things we have done. As usual he was a star. I have to say that coming from a business background, it is very discouraging to have the negative attitude from kwikfit. Just means that they are missing out on a rapidly growing already very large market sector. I mean hybrids are becoming quite mainstream now. Anyways its their loss. I only use them for tyres. i like to carry out the service myself or with some help from my mate Konrad. Anyways, aside fro
  11. BTW. What could the whine from left of the inverter be? is it normal?
  12. Yup I concur. Sure enough it sounds like it. I popped the hood this morning when it was on electric. Whine is coming from left side of the inverter unit but the noise that I feel and hear inside seems to be coming from the abyss that is behind the front passenger headlight. It leads me to think that the inverter coolant pump is on its way out. I am assuming this is a service item right? as my car has done 100000. I know coz i took a picture of it the other day :). sorry I am a bit sad like that. I know the videos are there on youtube and I have seen some already but has anyone here done anythi
  13. Hi All, Sorry to bother. I have a gen2 prius 2007 1.5 vvti. Few days ago it was where cold here in surrey. I parked the car at 8.30 in the morning and picked it up at 2.00pm. I noticed immediately that there is a constant whine coming from the front of the car. Its not a buzz not vibrating nothing like that just a plane old whine. Its only there while the car is in parking and i think it disappeared once the car had warmed up. It sounded like a whine that comes from really high voltage cables or transformers. I am wondering is it the cold or could something else be at play. the car has co
