  1. Hey Brah welcome to the club! better than those posers on the corollaclub forum ;) I've been looking at getting a compressor in the not too distant future so i have done shed loads of looking around, 3 main things to look for, Leaky rear shocks which is quite common on the lowered suspension, Exhaust system in its entirety as these tend to rot out apparently and Toyota will force you to remortgage your house for a OEM one - hence why aftermarket is the way to go, And finally the Biggy, When you take it our for a spin do you find that the supercharger dip stick pops out? Now I've read that sometime it does due to a poor O ring around the top but more than likely its to do with pressure coming back from the supercharger into the oil system and if so you really want to get it looked at by Toyota, admittedly due to the rarity they dont often know how to service the supercharger as all Toyota say is that the technician should check for leaks and tighten if necessary, I dont know how it would go about getting it serviced without it going back to Ogura. So check all these Issues as you probably will experience them at some point, Also as well the first 2 aren't bad because you can get a really decent set of BC Coil overs for £700 where as Toyota want £2000 for a pair of rear shocks, and you can get a nice custom exhaust system for about £700 too compared to Toyota's £1200 price-tag Failing all of those probably the MAF sensor especially if it had an induction Kit as most owners do fit to there compressor, Or it may just need a !Removed! good service. What condition is it in? - A
  2. Hmm if you can hear even the faintest electrical sound then it's a fuse or the solenoid for the release mech
  3. Hey bud, as far as I know, the actual mechanism is sealed from inside so no chance of anything obstructing the catch, and their isn't a mechanical lever on the boot so nothing can be interfering with that, can you hear the catch disengaging? If not possible solenoid issue, if you can't hear it try pushing down on the boot then pulling the release? Just to give the catch some wiggle room Cheers Alex
  4. Just to add, could be a faulty gauge too?
  5. Their usually on a float sensor, probably just stuck try filling it all the way to the top and if it still shows half the possibly chuck some RedeX in the tank to dissolve the carbon throughout the fuel system and see if that helps, might be a cheap fix?
  6. Hey guys looking at getting a 2005 - 2006 T Sport Compressor with around 60k on the clock? Know of any going primarily trade?and also anything I should be aware of in regard of servicing or parts? Alex
  7. Hey guys, am i right in thinking that basically across the corolla range so !.4 - 1.8 Tsport, that the head units are compatible, so for instance toyota only offer a 6 cd auto changer for my model, but for newer models in the tsport alike you can get sat nav and all that jazz, and the dash looks remarkably similar to mine, just wondering if they are compatible or if in fact this is a stupid idea of mine Regards PS anyone know anyone selling some 16 -17" Black Rims? Much appreciated
  8. Hey guys i have a 2003 Rolla 1.4 t3 and looking at putting some 17" alloys on it (black multispoke) its all standard apart from a BMC panel filter, just wanted to know, can it be done, and if so what should i be careful of? http://www.wheelbasealloys.com/17_calibre_rapide_black__5936 LIKE THESE Any comments are helpful Regards
  9. It's probably a synchromesh issue on the gear box, older boxes suffered with this issue, especially with that amount of miles, most likely inner city miles so on the gearbox a lot
  10. How many miles on the car?
  11. It happens when I built up a bit of revs and take off from a standstill or change gear with more revs
  12. Hey, Just wondering if there are any member on her from Swindon? Regards A lonely Corolla owner
  13. Hey I brought my 1.4 T3 with 99k on the clock, and the clutch is biting very high, but it only takes about an inch of movement from fully depressed for the car to roll, it has been fitted with a towbar which tells me the old user used to tow, which could have increased clutch wear, as to the squeaking my dad recons its the clutch release bearing, signs of a worn clutch basically, still drives fine, im obviously just a bit worried
  14. Hey I know this is a realy old ppost so it probably wont help much but im having exactly the same issue, i brought my 1.4 T3 with 99k on the clock, and the clutch is biting very high, but it only takes about an inch of movement from fully depressed for the car to roll, it has been fitted with a towbar which tells me the old user used to tow, which could have increased clutch wear, as to the squeaking my dad recons its the clutch release bearing, signs of a worn clutch basically, still drives fine, im obviously just a bit worried
  15. Thanks for the reply, I am looking at fitting a subwoofer in the boot and just wondering what it can handle as far as watts are concerned, dont really like the idea of a underseat one
