  1. Wanted Gen 6 Toyota Celica 2.0 GT ST202 ( not 1.8 ST or 2.0 GT4 ) Wanted for a rolling project so not showroom standard but must be mechanically sound and capable of passing next MOT with minimal work Must be manual transmission Ideally facelift ( 96-on ) but any considered Any colour, although my preference would be the turquoise 'blue' Within driving distance from, or willing to deliver to, Nottingham
  2. I'm looking for a Gen6 Celica GT for a track car project Ideally one which will pass an MOT, albeit with a little work As I'm looking to eventually strip down and use as a full-time track car the overall condition is not an issue, so long as it is mechanically sound MUST HAVE / BE: Celica Gen6 ST202 2 litre GT manual transmission Roadworthy and in a running / drive away condition Able to pass the next MOT even with some work IDEALLY: Facelift ( '96 onward ) In or near Nottingham
  3. I am looking for the original Toyota stereo radio cassette which came as standard with the Gen6 Celica or MR2 of the same age With it I also want the optional CD module which plugs into it, rather than the plastic blanking plate That can be either the one-shot CD, in-dash CD changer or under seat / boot mount CD changer ( only if head unit to changer cable is also available ) Thanks
  4. My '96 Celica is running a '92 Camry 3VZ-FE V6 Camrys seem to have only been available with automatic transmission in the UK Does any one have the dashpot sub-assembly ( 22202-62080 ) or the full throttle body for the manual version? Without this the throttle linkage snaps closed when the pedal is released, where the automatic transmission would have absorbed the effect
  5. I have just changed my radio from a B9010 to a B9013 because I wanted to add the rear camera Along with this feature I have also gained the options of DAB radio and Bluetooth hands free I have 4 questions on this unit ( question 4 also relates to the B9010 ) 1. If I am in the audio mode ( radio / CD display ) when I select reverse ( screen switches to rear view mode ) it will switch to SatNav mode when I release reverse gear Is there any way to get it to switch back to audio mode rather than navigation? 2. Does anyone know where I connect a microphone for the Bluetooth hands free telephone option? As you can see I have the adaptor cables for adding an aftermarket camera so hopefully I should have these wires in there somewhere 3. Pressing the AM.DAB button only selects the MW option How do I get into DAB mode? ( This is actually more to satisfy my curiosity ) 4. I have a Yatour digital CD changer and the radio firmware allows for up to 15 'CDs' to be played but the display only gives the options to choose from the first 6 CDs Is there any way to easily select discs 7 to 15? Until now I have to play the last track of the CD, let it play to the end and wait for it to change over Thanks
  6. I am looking to upgrade my '96 Celica sound system but don't want to go aftermarket I currently have the standard 4-speaker system ( 1 per door and 1 each side under the rear quarter glass ) I want to upgrade to the 8-speaker system ( 2 in the back, 2 tweeters and 2 per door ) I have the tweeters coming from ebay but am still looking for the twin door speakers Does anyone have the 2-speaker door cards with speakers ( including the lower ones, just in case ), wiring and any special brackets for sale? I'm lead to believe it needs a special amplifier to get them all working as well Thanks,
  7. I'm looking to add EGR option to my 1992 3VZ-FE ( Camry ) engine I need the EGR cooler which fits under the inlet manifold MPN 25681-62010 Ideally including cooler hoses and fixing bolts
  8. 1996 Celica GT ST202 Camry 3VZ-FE ( 3-litre 24 valve, not VVTi ) conversion courtesy of Paul Woods ( http://www.woodsport.org/joomla/ ) SEGA Rally livery 22 years old ( 26 year old engine ) but still pulls like a train and drives like a dream She'll go even better once I get a new non-slippy clutch! These are old pics as I have just put in an Avensis B9010 colour touch screen sat nav
  9. I have recently upgraded my Celica radio to a B9010 colour touch screen sat nav unit from an Avensis For some reason the screen switches to night mode with the ignition on but I have not modified the wiring in any way and as far as I am aware there is no ignition feed ( battery and ACC only ) This is the behaviour ( results from 'secret' diagnostic mode in brackets ) ACC on, lights off = Day mode ( IGN off, TAIL off ) ACC on, lights on = Night mode ( IGN off, TAIL on ) IGN on, lights off = Night mode ( IGN off, TAIL on ) IGN on, Lights on = Night mode ( IGN off, TAIL on ) For some reason the ignition ( position 2 ) is toggling the illumination input Has anyone else come across this? Also it does have rear camera connectivity ( 20pin + 5pin ) but this is greyed out on the diagnostic screen Does this mean my unit does not support a reversing camera?
  10. Does anyone have a link to a wiring diagram?
  11. I am trying to add A/C to my '96 Celica as I thought it would be fairly straightforward as I appear to have the wiring already in ( spare connectors ) I didn't realise I needed an amplifier for this to work and have managed to source a unit with wiring but need help on the last few bits The car is a bit of a Frankenstein's monster in that it is a 1996 Celica GT ( was 3S-GE ) with a Camry 3.0 V6 ( 3VZ-FE ) and the amplifier is from a 1994 ( ish ) GT4 ( 88650-2B280 ) Referring to the attached images can anyone please tell me where I need to connect the following cut wires: Loose wires near large white plug ( main chassis connector ) - White / Red, White / Yellow Large white connector ( main chassis connector ) - Green / Red, Yellow Amplifier main black connector ( wires cut near large white connector ) - Red / Blue, Brown / Yellow Large 4-pin connector ( 2 pins connected ) - White / Green, Black / White Large 3-pin connector - White / Green, Black / White, Pink / Black Large 4-pin connector - White / Green, Black / White, Red / Blue, Brown / Yellow ( x3 cut Black / White wires but only x1 cut White / Green ) Smaller 8-pin connector ( attaches near blower motor ) - Yellow / Black, Blue / Red, White / Red, Blue / Yellow, Grey, Blue / Black, Green / Yellow I also have a temperature sensor near the cooler but I can't check the wire colours as it is in for rust work at the moment Any help would be greatly appreciated Also to properly test the system, as I think I will need to charge the system before I can properly test it, can anyone tell me which amplifier pins I need to ground or pull up in order to do this? For example grounding the clutch relay will allow me to test clutch operation but "ground pins A, B and C to test pressure switch is working" will allow me to test individual components
  12. CD changer issue: I have just swapped my radio for a B9010 TNS700 ( Gen5 ? ) Sat Nav unit in my '96 Celica, replacing a 2002 Celica 58806 TNS310 Traffic Plus system as I wanted the colour map display I also have the Yatour digital CD changer working with it after buying a different cable ( 6+6 instead of 5+7 ) The CD changer module works perfectly in that it will play from the same SD card as was being used with the old 58806 HU and allows the selection of 6 'discs' and use of the track / seek buttons The 58806 could support 15 'discs' and the Yatour remembered I was listening to Disc13 Track11 even after power interrupt The B9010 played from this point even up to the last track of Disc15 before wrapping around to Disc1 Track1 all while displaying the correct information at the top of the display My questions are these: There are only touchscreen buttons for the first 6 discs but is there a disc up / disc down option to manually cycle through Discs? How many 'discs' can the B9010 handle with the Yatour module? Sound quality issue: I am using the standard '96 Celica GT 4-speaker setup which sounded great with the 58806 and the original stereo/cassette, all of which are internally amplified With the B9010, even with the Bass and Mid-level set to max, everything still sounds a little 'tinny' The Sat Nav voice on the TNS310, I think might also have been controlled by the HU bass / treble, was strong and clear but with the B9010 now sounds extremely tinny but I can't find any way of controlling this sound output I'm not one to drive around with my 'boom-boom' music, but I do like a good level of bass ( max bass without aftermarket amplifier has always been good enough for me ) Is there a way of improving this without adding an external amplifier?
  13. Thank you I already have the user manual but the link has gone some way to matching up some of the connections I did find this while searching but don't know if it is actually for my unit:
  14. I have just bought a Toyota B9010 satellite navigation head unit to replace my 58806 TNS310 Traffic Plus system in my '96 Celica As far as I can tell from looking around the internet it can support a reversing camera so I have bought adaptor cables which are originally for adding an aftermarket camera while keeping the original loom intact https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01LZ4XQKT/ref=pe_3187911_185740111_TE_item Can anyone please help by filling in the gaps in my knowledge regarding the rear connectors Looking at the rear and starting from the left: 5-pin ( grey ) - Reverse ( to switch display to camera ) , speed ( for sat nav and trip computer ) and parking brake ( why ? ) inputs 12-pin ( black ) - CD changer port 10-pin & 6-pin ( white ) - Power and speakers 20-pin ( white ) - Camera input , Camera 6V power, MANY OTHER PINS... 1-pin + shield ( Grey ) - GPS antenna 75 Ohm - Standard DIN FM antenna ( top ), Smaller antenna socket ( ? ) This is more to satisfy my curiosity and to know if there are other features which might be compatible in my old Celica Any advice would be greatly appreciated
