  1. Jack the car up and place on axle stand,grasp the top of the tyre with one hand and then grasp the bottom of the tyre in a similar manner.Try to rock the tyre up and down,if there is excessive play or a knocking noise then the bearing is goosed,Time to replace. That's assuming the tyre has been correctly inflated.
  2. Yes it is strange John,everything appears to have gone back to normal for now. weird.
  3. Get it aligned professionally Richard ,you will never get it right doing it yourself.Go to a place that has a Hunter Alignment machine /computer. They are the most accurate.... https://www.alignmycar.co.uk/
  4. I think the Gremlins have stuck. Im after some help or advice.About a week ago the temperature gauge decided it didn't want to move,even though the engine was hot and fully warmed up. Couple of days after that the glow plug light on the dash disappeared. And now the fuel computer has stopped working. Any help or advice appreciated.
  5. That was the pipe that failed on mine,on the M1 in third lane,luckily i was in heavyish traffic at the time or it could have been fatal,anyone who hasn't checked their brake pipes in this area i would suggest you get it done.
  6. I have the locking micro switch gone on my key fob and i only have the one key,where did you source the new micro switch from if i may ask.
  7. ?What is the make of Pads and Discs that you have had fitted. Some makes are more prone to squealing due to the brake compound hardness on the pads.
  8. My car is a 2006 1CD FTV 2.0 d4d engine and mine was just plug and play that's it,?which engine does yours have.
  9. If it was me i'd be looking on Ebay for a steering wheel with a cruise switch fitted.This is what i did and mine works a treat.Search for the Cruise thread on here .There's one here for 45 notes,just swap the air bag onto this and you're good to go. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TOYOTA-AVENSIS-MK2-T25-D-4D-STEERING-WHEEL-2008/202765395469?hash=item2f35c2660d:g:FhUAAOSwxMhdZNRm
  10. I wouldn't worry about the torque settings on the calpers and carrier,ive done loads of brakes over the years and you get a feel for the tightness of the bolts with experience.I don't think you can get a torque wrench on the nuts anyway.Get yourself some thread Locking Compound,use that and don't go over tightening the nuts you will be fine..PS the carrier bolts need a bit more torque that the slider bolts.
  11. Just a quick note for anyone that may need to do this job.The wheel studs cannot be replaced without removing the rear wheel hub,unfortunately,having said that it is not the most difficult job to do.
  12. I had this problem on mine. What i did was reverse flush the heater matrix,there's a How Too video on uchube shows you what to do it.Also if you can leave the car with the radiator cap off with the nose facing uphill over night,this should get rid of any excess air in the system,well it worked on mine anyway.
  13. That's the piece of pipe that failed on mine,id urge owners to get them checked out ,its the piece behind the anti splash matting right?
  14. Thanks for that Konrad,i'm hoping that i can do the job without removing the Hub,just waiting for the stud to arrive from flea bay and i'll let you know the outcome cheers .
