  1. Hi Paul Please could you tell me where you managed to get a replacement? Both of mine are missing, thanks to the baboons at Longleat 😉 Cheers Colin

    Bulbs

    go on eBay and search 'replacement led bulbs for toyota aygo' there's plenty, but Frosty is correct they are not street legal in UK and it will give Police a valid reason to stop you, I wouldn't risk the stiff fine, points on my licence and increased insurance as a result. If its brighter headlights you want you can buy them in Halfords, they are expensive but legal

    Citroen c1

    Have a look at a post titled Electrical Problem by aygo_rory on page 2 of the forum
  4. Whatever.............I was just trying to have a bit of banter with you.................you know a forum for like minded enthusiasts to share and enjoy each others tales and help each other .........I clearly over stepped the boundary and now completely understand why you chose the name of Frostyballs ...........I thought that as you are management and I inserted a 'smiley' emoji you may of grasped that......... Clearly not.........please accept my humble apologies for upsetting you!!!

    Any advice

    Hiya............agree with above about getting it checked.......my money would say a loose battery terminal (earth side) or loose other end of earth cable where bolted to chassis ....please let us know the outcome 😉
  6. Oh Mr Frosty.......I have never ever seen an automatic with a clutch pedal.........my point was that you said this also applies to manual cars after you had explained how to start an auto by depressing the clutch pedal ..............is it April 1st by any chance lol 😉
  7. HA! notice the 'removed' bit above? I literally typed your user name without the numbers 1001 😉
  8. Congratulations ...!Removed!!! ;-)))) Hows your mileage? Im up to 136,000 on my little beast 😉
  9. Yes I have seen your exact reply/copy/pasted response previously which relates to 'automatic' vehicles, the vehicle in question is apparently has a manual gearbox if you read it......(o offence btw)
  10. Hi............would you be able to say...........does this noise happen when driving (accelerating) or braking?
  11. Does it??? I have a manual vehicle and if after reading this I depress the clutch pedal fully it has an adverse effect...........I simply don't touch anything ...put the key in and turn and within a micro second the engine starts.................in fact after reading this I tried it with the clutch pedal fully depressed and it got a whole lot worse.........NO way would I recommend that course of action on any modern car (post 70's) and not even pre 70's if one knows how to operate a manual ''choke'' ..........the only case I can see for doing so is if one has a very poorly underrated battery CCA level wise but in reality I don't think anyone does (unless they got it from "Poundland" I have owned many pre 70's British classics whereby the engine and transmission fluids are shared and that is the only situation whereby depressing the clutch pedal is of any beneficiary! If your Aygo is not starting at the turn of the key instantly then it suggests other issues....
  12. Hi Mark..............you Sir are SO correct! ...............personally, I have NEVER used my rear fog light......... In my humble opinion they should be banned!!!!!!!!!!! I think they cause more accidents than they save.............folk quiet obviously switch them on when its foggy...........Really? we are struggling to see as it is in the fog and NOW you want to 'blind' everybody with ya stoopid dumb ***** foglight!!!!! (that YOU can't see but is actually causing MAYHEM behind you) ............I have never understood and never will understand rear fog lights...........BAN THEM!!!! As an experienced driver any other experienced driver should agree, even front ones are totally useless...........driving in fog ...........you can see FAR more with 'dipped' beam and even more so with just side lights on.....if you switch to 'full' beam or indeed front Fogs.............all you see is NOTHING .....just 'bounce back' off the fog which kinda acts like a mirror and makes it impossible...........IN my opinion if we just all slowed down a bit...........a whole lot of lives would be saved! ...........my late Dads motto was " better to get there 10 mins late than never at all" Mark, apologies as my little rant was absolutely not aimed at you personally.......you raised a topic which I have reacted to and feel very strongly about.......Hey, that's what chat forums are for yeah.............
  13. You are absolutely correct, the pins are offset to assist in fitting the bulb the right way up............however, its not impossible to fit the bulb improperly, as long as its wedged itself in enough it will make connection....
