    Child seats

    we have a 13 plate auris hybrid and with 2 child seats in place you wont be able to have anyone sitting in between them
  2. once your car has cooled down make sure to check your water level and top up if necessary with an antifreeze mix
  3. i think this will be the cheapest option for you at less than £100 delivered if its only the bumper thats been damaged you'll just have to fit it https://www.synetiq.co.uk/parts-breaking/details/rear-bumper-toyota-aygo-2014-on-x-play-tss-vvt-i-5-door-hatchback-white-11247920/-/176382/
  4. some times you can remove the cap from the end of the solenoid if this is possible you can then give the contacts in there a clean up if the contacts are corroded / pitted from use the power wont flow through as it should . you can test it off the car if you have a spare battery by connecting the body of the solenoid to the battery negative and the small connector being connected to the posiitve on the battery, you will then hear the solenoid engage at this point check across the 2 large battery terminals with a multimeter and check the resisitance you would want this close to zero, the lower the reading the better the connection with zero being optimum.
  5. check the battery connections are tight and clean and do the same for the 3 main earths battery - body battery - engine body - engine if these are all good you may have a lazy / tired starter motor and could possibly be in need of a new one you could remove it and give it a good clean,check the carbon brush length and give the commutator a polish up , you have to remember your car is 11 years old now and if its the original starter then you haven't done badly with it i have attached an exploded view of a starter motor with the parts all named for you
  6. you have a strange issue there malcolm make sure all power cables have been re connected in case there was a fly lead on the battery that hasn't been reconnected then check all of the fuses. the normal resetting after a battery disconnection is for the radio station presets, clock & the one touch windows up & down thats it.

  9. if you get anymore messages on the dash take a photo of them to show the dealership as your car always seem to be running right when you get to them for a quick check over
  10. if parts-king suggestion improves but its not quiet perfect then you could open up the mounting holes in the camera to give a little more adjustment

    when do Drl's turn on ...... we have a 2013 Auris Hybrid do they come on when the hybrid system is turned on or as the manual states the dril's come on when the hybrid system is on and when the handbrake has been released... she's adamant they always came on with ignition on and the handbrake applied now were are having heated talks as she is obviously correct and toyota is wrong i can only go with the manual as i dont drive the car and dont know when they do turn on. there doesnt seem to be any hard and fast rules regarding drl's as they can illuminate with ignition, with ignition on and handbrake off or on starting to move which applies to a 13 plate auris hybrid look forward to your replies
  13. the bulbs you used do they have heat sinks on the back of them to help cool the led driver, what led bulbs did you use and have you had any feedback from the owner of the car
  14. depending on your point of view, a window close on locking feature may be deemed as being lazy ultimately most modern cars are making you lazy as they have so many convienience functions as std auto head light, auto wipers , voice activation, keyless entry, keyless start, welcome lights as you approach your car to name a few. in my car the drivers seat automatically moves backward and the steering wheel moves up & away just to make it easier for you to get in and out of the car.
  15. the silver remote has a cover that slides up to hide the buttons so accidental presses wont happen
  16. the older style of headlight the beam is higher on the kerbside so when you drive on the opposite side of the road you can blind oncoming traffic with the flat beam style the beam is flat and wont blind oncoming traffic here are a couple of images showing the flatbeam style and the old style.
  17. here are some links for you the first link is for a door popper kit and the second link is for a 12v remote best of all its about £26 for all you need. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Electric-boot-trunk-release-Door-Popper-KIT-EBRK01/171154219894?hash=item27d9962376:g:~igAAOSwridaBuEI https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Wireless-Remote-Control-Switch-DC-12V-433MHz-Transmitter-with-Receiver-AO/312706827359?hash=item48cec7845f:m:mAQVkWwZLZjPqgu2Yfff4ag
  18. i also thought that led / hid upgrades where not road legal as the headlight had only been tested using the std bulb

    Toyota coolant

  20. we had our 13 plate auris headlights changed due to the recall you wont see any better light coverage distance wise with the new version but at least you will have new headlights without it costing you anything.
  21. TRD make a kit for the auris just search for trd auris body kit trd stands for toyota racing developemnt
  22. 5% is really dark, i have had 5% in the past and at night reversing is quiet difficult you have to check and double check before you start moving. the % is the amount of light that can pass through so a 5% tint lets 5% of the light through therefore 15% isnt as dark
  23. on my previous lexus IS300h i had CC's fitted after approx 18000 miles they where approaching half worn would buy them again without thinking twice. quiet & grippy tyre no rear end being tail happy.

  25. here is a link for a folding mirror module. this only works if you have power folding mirror to start with this adds on the auto folding function. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/UK-Car-Auto-Folding-Side-Rear-View-Mirror-Closer-System-Modules-For-All-Car/312646676651?hash=item48cb31b0ab:g:a7EAAOSwrdlcf729
