    Tailgate struts

    Hi. This happened to mine a few years back, they didnt get rusty just lost their strength. Toyota replaced them under warranty. I'd recommend finding out how much the originals are from Toyota initially and weigh it up from there. Ebay will be a good place to look too.
  2. That sounds correct to me. My instrument lights only come on when lights are on.
  3. They're both suspension advisories so could well be something to do with it if they've worsened but without someone going under the car to look you won't know.
  4. My 2014 IQ has a lot of rattles from the dash over certain roads too. I used to have a GT86 and that creaked and rattled too. The IQ has a short wheelbase and suspension is a little firm so that can contribute to crash ride. If there's anything amiss with your suspension it'll get picked up at MOT. You could look at the car's MOT history on line and see if any suspension issues were down as advisories in the past.
  5. Hi First thing I thought was..... why would you fit them? Just go for the standard tyre. It's what Toyota designed it for. Regarding affecting resale, I feel.it would as not standard.
  6. May as well just replace it. They start at £20 secondhand on ebay. Job done!
  7. It's not a stupid question. Gets asked all the time on here and you'll see other posts on forum. It's a cover to cover load area when rear seats are down. There are 3 pop studs on each side of the rear interior that it fixes to. If it's not been used before you may have to remove the covers that cover over the pop studs on each side of rear interior. I use mine all the time. Also, you can store the rear headrest in the storage tray under the rear seat base. Pull the material tab at front of rear seat to access.

    IQ Wanted

    I'd keep looking on Auto Trader, Toyota website and even eBay. Just looked on auto trader there are loads for sale in and around Kent. There's also a facebook page Toyota IQ UK that's quite busy and has some cars for sale every now and again. Keep looking, you'll find one. Be quick though...good cars don't stay for sale for long.
  10. 176/65 R15 Sailun Atrezzo 84H. Got them all round. Not heard of them, local garage I go to recommended them from others. They're black, they're round and they grip. ☺

    IQ Wanted

    There's not a lot to look for really. I've got a 2014 IQ2 1.0 Auto fron new and nothing to speak of has gone wrong. Had a horn and hatch struts replaced under warranty. Only just replaced original front pads after 45k miles. Odd few dash rattles is the only thing that's bugged me. You can get the IQ3 which is same spec as IQ2 but with 1.33 engine and different alloys/tyres but these are rare and tend to be expensive. I'd go for an IQ2 auto as new as you can get, low miles with Full Service History. Depends on your budget. Things to be aware of: Earlier white cars can suffer with paint peeling off but seems to be corrected by 2011. Interior lighting is shockingly bad. There's a guy on here, Tarquin, who does a brilliant front & rear lighting upgrade. Bluetooth: No Bluetooth is fitted so consider getting a Parrot kit. Avoid the IQ1, bit basic. Some auto's have a whine from gearbox after long/fast drives which there's a topic for on here. Had it a bit on mine but gearbox fluid change stopped it. Other than that they're a brilliant car. Shame they don't still make them. Keep us posted.
  12. I've put budget tyres on mine at just over half that price. Not noticed any major difference.

    Tyres

    Personally I'd keep them a while longer. You've still got wear left on them and you don't do loads of miles. I recently had a similar issue but with less tread depth than your's and the garage said to me I'd get a few more months out of them so I waited. Some people may say winters coming so you should change for safety but they're still legal so unless you're driving like Ayrton Senna I'd wait.
  14. Visually the IQ3 has 16" silver alloys and many have chrome door mirror housings. Other than that there isn't any other obvious difference. Under the skin the suspension and engine are different. IQ3 has approx 30 more bhp and lot more torque.. The spec is same as IQ2.
  15. Still looking for a late low.mileage IQ3 1.33 multidrive. Search is proving frustrating as they sell so quick. Missed out on 2 14 Reg iQ3 both with under 6k miles at £7995 in last fortnight as I couldn't get to see them in time. Then last night discovered this joker asking £9995 for one with 8k miles. I messaged him as I thought misprinted as over £2k more than usual..... but no, it's the right price. Absolutely crazy given you could buy a 19reg Aygo auto with very low miles and more tech for same money. Granted the Aygo is poor quality. The search continues.
  16. What did you buy in replacement for the IQ? I sometimes have issues with 1.0 power so am looking for a late 1.33 which is proving very difficult as they sell so quickly.
  17. It'll fit, they're a really good idea. Just prise the covers off very careful with a small flat screwdriver. I find mine really useful to cover up load area. Hope you're enjoying you're new car. One thing you'll probably discover is that the interior lighting is shocking. Tarquin on here does an excellent upgrade to original dome light and can also fit rear lights. I've got both and well worth it especially when the dark nights start.
  18. It's a cover to go over rear luggage area when seats are down. It pop studs onto pop studs on either side of car. See pic. You may have to take off popstud covers from inside of car if it's never been used before.
  19. Silly question, and apologies if you have, but have you looked under the rear seat swab for head rests? That's where I store mine.
  20. Sounds more like a door seal possibly. Maybe sit in car and get someone to hose the area with water to see if you can reinact it.
  21. Not had this myself but here are plenty of posts on here about leaks. Good luck.
  22. I saw this one for sale on Auto Trader. Hope you enjoy it.
  23. Great stuff. Any pictures?
  24. Hi. Your best bet is to message Tarquin on here (David). He has DRL fitted to his IQ
