  1. i think the general consensus on toyota projector lights that use hir2 bulbs is that they are a bit rubbish. I have them on my auris, and I would agree
  2. yep, it will be notification that you are approaching a speed camera that is in the nav database
  3. the facelift lights will fit, but not the one you have linked to. That one is coming from Germany and so the fog/reverse light is swapped.
  4. Thanks for your reply. I get what you are saying, and may just replace them for the sake of £30. However, where are you getting the 6 years from? As I see no mention of a timeframe. My UK spec service booklet doesn't mention it 🤔
  5. 2015 Auris, due its 6th service in March. According to the service book, it says spark plug replacement at 60,000 miles. This says 54,000 miles. https://www.toyota-tech.eu/MS/PDFS/67ad3b19c71643719143f68802b7310a.pdf I don't see that either specify a timeframe as an alternative (i.e. whichever is sooner). Question is, my car has only done 39,000 miles, should I need to change the plugs or not? On inspection last year, (approx 2000 miles ago), they looked in good condition.
  6. Have a look at this video Don't touch the little element and make sure it's completely dry before putting it back in.
  7. whatever you do, don't clean your maf sensor with carb cleaner - use IPA, or electrical contact cleaner as it will leave no residue to cause issues, e.g.: https://www.halfords.com/motoring/engine-oils-and-fluids/lubricating-and-penetrating-oil/halfords-electrical-contact-cleaner-500ml-621335.html
  8. i wonder, do you have it set to North America instead of Europe? Might be why it's not showing your models?
  9. i put a set of used avensis horns off ebay (high and low) in mine. need to make up a short y cable with some male and female spade crimps, but other than that a direct plugin with no relay required. did the same on my auris A massive improvement
  10. I'm sorry for the damage 😟 when you say it was too fast for your liking, what do you mean? You can go as slow or as fast as you like by feathering the clutch, not the brake
  11. the repeated clicking is usually the tell tale sign of a depleted battery
  12. I actually came across it on the net - it is a full pdf service manual for the engine: https://apps.techcollege.dk/autoqr/vhb/Motor/1KR-FE Engine Mechanical 1.pdf
  13. Where is it leaking from? Did you apply a blob of sealant on the joint between the cylinder head and timing chain cover?
  14. lol, missing on my 2008 as well. What did you get off ebay? Was it a specific part, or the generic rubber seal?
  15. yes, what I could get to was wirebrushed, and treated with rust converter - 3rd image. Anything else is going to get hit with Dynax S50
