  1. sorry, looks like the image link didn't work. trying again...
  2. I also had this on my Aygo Mk1. I recently had the water in the wheel well, and also on the raised bit each side of the wheel well. I have cleaned up and resealed the usual culprits - High level brake light, rear lights, rear vents behind the bumper, and the hatch bump stops, cleaned the hatch glass and seal and applied silicone to the seal. All this ultimately stopped the majority of the water - I now had none above the wheel well, but I occasionally still got around an half an egg cup full in the wheel well after rain, but not every time. I re-checked everything and it all looked good. Baffled, so today, whilst raining I sat in the back of the car with the seats down and inspected every area of the back panel that I could get to. What I found was where the boot lock comes through, there is a very slow drip now and again. Looks like the bumper is going to have to come off again to seal the lock against the body.
  3. looks like your mudguard has moved and it now rubbing your tyre - have you perhaps reversed into something that could have pushed the mudguard towards the tyre? Assuming the mounting holes have not been damaged it should be fairly easy to put it back into position.

    New recall

    Hi all, Just a heads up that there seems to be a new recall for my mk2 auris published today. Worth checking if you are affected too. Not sure what this is - will call dealer tomorrow. Unless anyone knows already? Outstanding recall found There's an outstanding manufacturer's safety recall on TOYOTA AURIS CV15***. The vehicle has been recalled since at least 23 January 2019. Contact a TOYOTA dealership to arrange for repairs.
  5. Your 1.8 valvematic is a straight 4 cylinder engine so has no bank 2, which explains why you are not getting readings for this. This is normal. Are there any codes reported on your scanner?
  6. The horn is protected by a 10amp fuse. According to the net, the stock Toyota horns draw 4amps, so using two would still be within the limit. If you were going to use air-horns or similar, then you would need to use a relay and dedicated power feed.
  7. I'm not sure, but I doubt it would be much difference.
  8. that looks in fantastic condition
  9. how did you do it in the end? Brute force?
  10. I totally agree, it was the first thing I did when I got my Auris. I got a pair (high & low tone) of second hand Avensis horns off ebay (e.g: I chose these as they were a direct replacement as far as wiring and mounting is concerned. If you check your existing horn you will see that there is a bolt hole on the other side of the existing horn mount to take a second bracket/horn. You just need to make up a y-splitter type cable for the power using some short lengths of cable and crimp spade connectors so that you can daisy chain the power to the second horn. Have a look here for pictures:
  11. I think they are near perfect results. Nice and high, and less than 10% difference between them.
  12. Thought I'd post this as it's a bargain for someone if they are looking for a set of front discs for a 92-97 Corolla (£8.22 for the pair + del): There are some OE part numbers on the page to cross reference.
  13. The time has come for me to part ways with my trusty Corolla. It has been in the family since new, and I have owned it the last 14 years. It's 21 years old now, and still going strong. 137000 miles, regularly serviced. Recent two new tyres MOT until Septemper 2019 New clutch approx 8000 miles ago Complete new exhaust last year including front pipe type approved cat and oxygen sensor New 5th gear 6 years ago (approx 48000 miles ago) to resolve the common 5th gear pop-out Bodywork in good condition for age, major things to mention are small dent on boot, and scrape on bumper. Plastics would benefit from a re-spray (wing mirrors, bumpers) Other usual minor scuffs and scrapes in keeping with age. The red is notorious for fading, so I have given it a good polish and waxing to present it in its best light. Should last it through the winter. Interior is in excellent condition. Seats always had covers on them, floor mats always used. Electric windows/mirrors (working). Air Con (working) Car is pretty much original, and not modified. Looking for £800 ovno
  14. the OP's car does not support your usual OBD2 diagnostic reader as it pre-dates OBD2. Instead the system uses the ECU light on the dash to output codes:
