  1. Hi all not happy today went to get two new tyres on the front of my website today to be told the net wheel couldn't be fitted back on because some complete humpty has run a tap down 4 of the 5 stud holes and had hammered on one of the nuts. This car has only been to beadles Medway and the person that repaired the crash damage since I had the wheel off to check the pads. The person that repaired the car wouldn't of done that as there is absolutely no need or reason to do that that I can think of. Just another shining example of the service at beadles Medway. Coop
  2. Hi all as some of you are aware I had a coming together with a ford Mondeo a few weeks back. I have now bought the salvage and had the car repaired myself. However I am not happy with the way Toyota (my insurers approved repairer) have handled it. For a start they tried to value the car 3k less than it was worth that was sorted by the insurance assessor to be fair. They then put in a quote of 4.5k for spares etc. 75% of the bits listed were not needed. At one point I did ask them if the chassis leg was bent because the door was hitting the wing and the wing was sticking out at the f
  3. hi just a quick update and a couple more questions. I have the list of required parts from the report now rather than the rambled off list from the garage. so need some more parts im just not sure what the following is. 1) front lock strut (I have looked on ebay and this seems to be the front panel/slam panel but this was listed as a separate item) 2) radiator cowling and front radiator cover 3) lh & rh bumper guides 4) lh/rh guide panels there are lots of other bits that seem to be to do with the bumper moulding its self including a seal kit and fitting kit. tha
  4. Hi all I am in the process of pricing up some bits to see if it is viable to put the car back on the road. which leads me to 2 questions 1) is the aircon rad and intercooler one and the same??? if not which is the aluminium rad at the front in front of the engine rad. (ebay calls it aircon/intercooler rad) 2) what is the bar called that holds the rads at the top and the bonnet closed? many thanks Coop
  5. ok not happy with the quote I have been given it seems to be silly money but then again in some respects they have quoted for every tiny thing not just the accident damage. The dealership have advised me that the insurance will write it off 3.5 grand seems a lot of money for a 5 mph shunt. didn't even do any damage to the other car.
  6. im just a little bemused as to why they sent it to a main dealers 2 towns over when there is a bigger dealership in my own town.
  7. Hi all just a bit of a silly question as I realise its kinda a how long is a bit of string exercise. I had a head on crash this morning at a slow speed with a ford Mondeo. The other guy was happy there was no damage to his car however there is quite a bit to mine. For the want of a better description the front bumper bar is pointing inwards and is sticking into the air con rad (front rad) and possibly into the main one slightly (billows of steam but no puddle and didn't show signs of leaking until it was moved onto the recovery truck). There is something funny with the o/s/f wing but n
  8. Hi thanks for the responses As Konrad says its only an under-tray however reading the small print if I don't receive it I have to wait 3 weeks b4 they will do anything. also if it is returned to them. they will charge me 20% restocking fee and postage back to me. Having had dealings with international shippers I have yet to find one that is any good. numerous times I have had items returned to me saying the address is incorrect yet are able to find to find it quickly and efficiently the second time with exactly the same address on it. coop
  9. Hi all as part of my ongoing saga with this money pit I now need a new undertray (offside and the middle part). My local dealers have quoted me over 300 quid inc vat and clips. I have looked on ebay briefly and the only person I can find selling them is http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Toyota-Avensis-03-08-Diesel-2-0-2-2-UNDER-ENGINE-COVER-set-new-HDPE-CLIPS/201338457480?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D35308%26meid%3Db48eb364e71a4ddfa9ddabc7806d1709%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D201338454411 although he says uk in his name he is
  10. yes but cost a lot of money...over 1500 ... had it done again today as had clutch issues and had the old parts back... and they were luk.... I guess the only way to find out what they said they were going to fit is to ask them.... just not 100% sure they did fit it because as said in a previous post car has only done 20k since and I remember the clutch pedal didn't feel as if it had a new clutch but I put it down to I had only had the car a couple of weeks then and dismissed it.
  11. I guess the question is.. do they use luk brand? I seem to remember that bosch was the oem
  12. they supposedly fitted it 3 years ago when I had a replacement engine due to head gasket issues
  13. Hi all as the title says really what brand is the oem for the clutch and flywheel on an avensis diesel estate 08 plate (07 model) many thanks Coop
  14. hi thanks for the response. I had the dmf and clutch replaced about 20k ago when the engine was replaced by Toyota for head gasket failure. I am stuck with the kit because it was a special order item and the place I got it from wont refund it. Im kinda at a loss what to do as I either waste the kit....or spend more money to have it fitted. cooop
  15. sorry should of said its a 2.0 diesel t3 model on a 08 plate
