  1. Check if your car has drive-by-wire or cable throttle control. If drive-by-wire it's a fairly easy job. Check near the accelerator pedal, there should be wiring and possibly a switch.
  2. Keep in mind the model compatibility list is for US market models which are in most cases different from European models.
  3. Not necessarily. So is mine and it was built in Japan, thankfully. And no, I didn't import it myself.
  4. 56 plate Yaris is probably built in France (check the vin first letter), you're better off keeping the Japan built Corolla than the "French" Yaris. YMMV
  5. I own a 2005 1.4 T3, never had any oil consumption issues.
  6. I got a set of mats for my corolla and another for my partner's Yaris from the link below. I have no affiliation and I believe they're here on the forum. They are the original size and I'm happy, reasonably priced too. https://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-2338-tailored-car-floor-mats.aspx
  7. Don't think noise is an issue, certainly not as noisy when driving with the window open with no deflectors. Definitely useful for driving with window open while raining. As for the visibility I agree it does affect it.
  8. This worked for me to programme a key for a 99 Yaris. It only worked on the second attempt. Make sure doors are closed. For 1998+ Toyota, LexusAdd Duplicate Key Simultaneously depress and release brake and accelerator pedals 1 time. Insert existing master key into ignition. Within 15 seconds depress and release accelerator pedal 5 times. Within 20 seconds depress and release the brake pedal 6 times and remove key. Within 10 seconds insert new key into ignition. Within 10 seconds depress and release the accelerator pedal 1 time. After 80 seconds new key is registered and security light goes off. Remove new key and depress and release brake pedal 1 time.
  9. Not sure you're familiar with it. Have a look at http://www.japan-parts.eu/. Diagrams available.
  10. As the title says I found what I think is a good deal on an oxygen sensor from Opie Oils (www.opieoils.co.uk). £53.05 delivered to Northern Ireland for a Denso DOX-0206 (pre-cat) sensor after using promo code NOV5TH for 10% off. They also sell on amazon but it was cheaper on their website. The code is, apparently, valid for anything on the site. P.S. I have no affiliation with opie oils. Just found a good deal and thought I'd put it up here, might help someone else.
  11. OBD-II wasn't mandatory in Europe until 2001. I could be very wrong but I would be surprised if your car had one.
  12. HI Vitor, regarding your post about tailight gasket.

    I'm facing the same problem and i wondering where did you buy those new redisigned gaskets. I hope you can help me.

      I bought them from Toyota.

  13. As far as i know clocks were only fitted in lower spec models which didn't have a radio unit. I could be wrong be I believe all corollas in the uk had a factory fitted radio so it will probably be hard to find one in a breakers with a clock. I recall seeing a post about the wiring in this forum before.
  14. At this stage it is not news to anyone that the early Yaris units leak water into the boot. Some through the taillights, some through the stop light and some through both. I believe this happens with some other models as well and the forums have a few posts from people asking about it and some others saying how they've fixed it, usually with silicone. I just had to deal with this on my other half's 1999 Yaris (made in Japan fortunately), instead of going the silicone route I ordered new gaskets to see if they had changed their initial crap design and they had. Attached are some photos of the original gasket and the new re-design ones. It's no surprise the old ones leak. They're not cheap but here are the part numbers in case you're interested: 81554-52020 81564-52020 I can't remember which is right and which is left but google is your friend. I hope the idiot that approved the design of the original ones has been sacked and made to work in a Fiat service garage.
