  1. Just in case you don't know the key is hidden inside the key fob it just pulls out where it joins to the key ring Hope This Helps
  2. I've had my hybrid auto for over 5 years now. Just keep a check on the 12 volt battery in the boot mine failed and had to get the RAC, out the battery had to be replaced and the RAC, quoted me £150 ouch but because they don't sell the battery for my car (something to do with engine switching off at traffic lights n stuff ) He had to get one from a Toyota dealer and they were cheaper than what RAC, sold them about £120 But touch wood no other troubles since Enjoy your car happy driving
  3. Thanks for the info but after reading all your replies I've decided to just buy another kit from here https://www.amazon.co.uk/Slime-CRK0305-Smart-Tyre-Repair/dp/B003QHY000/ref=sr_1_2?crid=BLN3U6FY06YA&keywords=spare%2Btyre%2Bfoam&qid=1653671094&sprefix=spare%2Btyre%2Bfoam%2Caps%2C90&sr=8-2&th=1 Just hope the next puncture isn't in the sidewall of the tyre fingers crossed
  4. Hi all , I was driving my Auris Auto Hybrid 1.8 when I got puncture but my car does not have a spare tyre so I had to use the included repair kit that was in the boot ,using it to inflate the tyre but after a short drive the tyre still went down. After reading the small print it says it doesn't work if the puncture is in the side wall, which mine was Dam ! Anyway I have had the tyre changed and all is fine again. I was wondering can I fit a spare in the boot so next time I can just change the tyre
  5. Hi All , My air con as stopped working again I had it fixed last year but its failed again , so that's gonna cost me another £50 to get it done for the coming warm weather (fingers crossed) But my Auris Hybrid is now 9 years old with just under 70000 miles the clock so I guess its to be expected Sigh !

  8. Yes no problem, it was the auto gearbox overheating due to worn parts that had to be replaced it did cost over £600 at the Toyota dealer I would suggest you take it to your local dealer and let them have a look . hth

  12. Japanese car giant Toyota has announced a recall of more than 2.4 million hybrid vehicles worldwide because of a fault in their systems that could cause them to lose power. ... However, the carmaker said that in "rare situations", the fault could cause vehicles to stall when entering "failsafe" driving mode I phoned my local Toyota dealer in Liverpool. I told them mine was registered in 2013 and they told me they are sending out letters to those effected and I should receive one soon you can check on the My Toyota web site if your car is included in the recall, just enter your reg number .
  13. Hi all , Unfortunately winter is on it's way and I have been looking for a windscreen and front door windows cover to protect my Auris from bad weather ahead of us and was wondering if anyone has any recommendations. I have looked on the internet but there are so many covers with bad reviews it’s all so confusing . And I wondered if any of you any good recommendations ? Thanks

  16. Hi all not been on here for a while just swapped my little Aygo for a auris excel vvt i cvt hybrid 1.8 vvt-i automatic 2013 been in the car studying the owners manual all seems straight forward then I noticed a little square hole just below the right hand nob on the aircon and above the electric park button it looks like it's ment to have something in I can't find it in the manual has any body any ideas ?
  17. I've had the car for about 3 years, it had about 54,000 on the clock when in bought it . I've had to have the bearings in the gear box replaced about 8 months after I purchased it, that was nearly £700 at a Toyota dealer it's been ok since only noticed the oil usage about 3 months ago still no oil dripping signs on my drive where it's parked every night ?
  18. Ok I'll monitor the oil level and see how it goes............ I will post my findings on here ............Thanks I did read on other web sites something about the piston ring sizes where manufactured wrong from day one on the Aygo and that someone used thicker oil and that that seemed to work ?
  19. No there are no leaks that I know of its parked on my drive and no oil anywhere and I don't drive the car hard I should have also mentioned it an automatic model thanks
  20. Hi all , I have a 09 Aygo with 90 thousand miles on the clock yesterday the oil light flickered on and off so I thought I would check the oil level mmmmm there was nothing registering on the dip stick I already had 2.5 litres of 5w 30 so I popped this in and the level now reads half full , Is it because it high mileage that the oil was so low as it had a full service 6 months ago I have read on other forums that this is a common problem with the Aygo also I read of some one using a different thicker oil to solve this is there any truth to this?
  21. Hi Devon Aygo thanks for the info 😄 can I order these parts online 🤔
  22. Hi , I have also got an Aygo 2009 model and the car has developed the same problem as yours ,wet boot and wet backseat I have tried searching for the source of the leak with no luck it's very frustrating. Does anyone have a solution if so I would be very greatful........ Thanks
