  1. Hmm, quite a few people on this board with the same engine as I have seem to do it though. They all basically use the same amount as well. "You are correct Devon Aygo, the sump was not changed. I have run my Avensis for a couple of year now with a modified dipstick, +10 mm, green dot on the top. Presently I do not use a drop of oil" "Anyway I did start using the high grade of unleaded and my oil consumption dropped to 1/3rd. However unfortunately at the same time I made a couple of other changes. I filled the oil 10mm above the full line to help the oil not get overheated ( factory mod with r
  2. Thanks, I've decided to order Mobil1 ESP Formula 5W-30. Should I add more oil than the max level on the dipstick, considering the engine type I'm blessed (/cursed) with? I think I've read that 1 cm above max is commonly used, or is that only if you make other modifications?
  3. They wanted £3 a piece for the clips (got 6 of them), not sure about the cost of the two parts below (they are missing on the opposite sides), but he said the total was ~£42. I was considering replacing the part below as well, but no way I'm paying ~£50 for it!
  4. Uh oh, not another oil tread, you're probably thinking. Sorry about that, but I've been trying to read up on this, I'm just so overwhelmed with the amount of information spread over so many threads. My car is a 2001 Toyota Avensis 1.8 VVT-I, ~107600 km driven. The oil was last changed in December when it was at 105000, the oil that was used was Castrol Magnatec 5W-40 C3 4L, I had bought the oil planning on doing it myself, but didn't have time so the mechanic did it while servicing the vehicle, I believe he poured in all of the 4 liters of oil (higher level than the max on the dipstick). As of
  5. I went back again to the part dep. and ordered 6 of these clips along with a few other parts missing from the car :)
  6. From Google-searching with the part numbers you posted I came across this site. Looks like the clips I'm after might be 82161-05630? Edit: Found another angle of the clips you suggested. The general shape of it looks different IMO. Edit: I'll never question you again, avensisd4d786, looks like you were right all along! :) The part number I found is for the wire itself. ToyoDIY.com confirms that the one you found is correct, "HOOK, FLOOR CARPET, Quantity: 10, Price: € 3.07"
  7. They did, the pictures I posted of the different types of clips is based on my registration number. I talked to someone who used to be a mechanic and he was surprised they couldn't bring up the type of drawing/pic you posted.
  8. This forum is something else.. :D Thank you very much! Shouldn't the car dealership have these drawings available? Are these types of drawings readily available on the internet?
  9. Hi. As I needed access to the underside of the carpet to remove some rust, I had to remove three plastic ( :censor: ) clips that holds the door trim in place, as well as a bunch of wires (taped up) that runs towards the back. Of course they all broke. I went by the local Toyota car dealership (with parts-store) and asked if they knew what type it was (didn't bring pictures), but they had no idea. They printed out 3 pages of clips/clamps/brackets, but IMO none of them look right. I've attached them at the bottom of this post. I've highlighted those that look the most alike, but there's somethin
  10. Ya, it's pretty wide! I should have clarified though, glare might not be the right word. When the screen is on, there's glare from the rear window, the mirror would have to be very dark/unreflective to avoid this, I believe. It's slightly darker than the OEM one, but I haven't had any problems with it.
  11. Yup, I couldn't figure out why it wouldn't move hah, I only tried pushing it though. Unfortunately there's quite a bit of glare in the mirror/screen when using it during the day, at night it's great! Driver-side A-pillar, appears that some/most of the tape/straps holding the side curtain airbag have separated, any idea if this has to be sorted out ASAP?
  12. Kenneth, I assumed you did not get the D tab base in the kit. Just the mirror alone. When you get this tab, check there is room to slide the mirror in place. Don't stick it without testing! I still think the old base be removed so the new mirror is in the ideal place. Konrad Yeah, now that I know it's included it makes it quite a bit easier. I'll of course make sure that the mirror has enough room to slide in before installing the tab, but thanks for the reminder anyway :). Removing the old base is probably ideal, but if there's any risk at all of the windscreen breaking I won't risk it (if th

  14. Going the old mirror route will cost around 19-20 pounds extra (ordering the mirror through eBay), but it might be the best/easiest solution considering I don't really have access to any tools to cut intricate shapes in plastic with. The third (probably the best-looking solution) is removing the old base and attaching a new one, but I'm not sure if this would cost too much to have someone do for me (professionals), I'll certainly call around to the local repair shops, see what prices they give me. Edit: Just received a reply to an email I sent the Rydeen guys, they do ship the mirror with what
  15. Thanks again, Konrad! Unfortunately that plastic base definitely won't work with the Rydeen mirror. Do you know what kind of adapter I can use (you mentioned something about it in the second post of the thread)? If I could find a cheap toyota mirror for sale (perhaps broken mirror) that has the same mounting system I could perhaps remove it from that mirror and attach it to the Rydeen mirror. Not all of the images showed up, but I believe it's the forum behaving strangely (the pics in my posts disappeared too), but I think I know what to do now :).
