  1. Thanks! Thats's a great help, much appreciated!
  2. Morning, I'm needign to get oil for my car VO63NFY and am stuggling to work out which is the correct oil to get. i know it's 5w30 i need however regarding the low saps i have no idea. Do i need a C2 or C3? Thanks Ash
  3. Thanks a lot much appreciated, what did you use to see parts with my VIN. I couldn't manage to search anything with it just came up doesn't exisit.
  4. Thanks, i'm used to the OEM numbers starting with 90919... that's how they are usually listed on the car parts sites.
  5. Hi guys, I'm trying to find the correct spark plugs for my Yaris, when doing a search on certain car part sites it comes up with a range of plugs that don't carry the same OEM number across them and i'm not wanting to order the wrong ones. I've tried searching my VIN number on the Toyota parts site but my car doesn't come up. My Reg is SY12VYC. If any one could assist that would be great! Thanks Ash
  6. That was my first thought if a light was on but all were off. Pretty sure doors were all closed too as the car won't lock if a door hasn't closed right if I recall correctly (the Yaris definitely does this). Will need to buy a meter and keep checks on the battery daily to see if there is any drain occuring.
  7. So..... Car has been with Mr T for 2 days and they have told me the reason for the faults is the battery was dead. They tested the battery before and after a full charge and they have told me that the battery is healthy. All it needed was a charge. Other than that the car is ready to be taken away, I've questioned how the battery can be dead as nothing was left on in the car to drain it. So surely there must be something going on to have drained it dead?!?!? I'll be collecting it tonight so will be questioning the techs as I'm a little uneasy taking it away if no reason has been given and "just keep an eye on it" has been instructed to me. My warranty is out in September so I'm not wanting to deal with an issue after it has lapsed. Any ideas guys??
  8. No the car lights and locks all work so I wouldn't think the batterys gone. I'll get that checked when the recovery folk come. I did think it's strange that the car won't start, wasn't sure if it's a safety function that stops it turning over?? Has anyone else had the handbrake issue but still been able to start the car and drive ok?
  9. My wife this morning can't get the car to start. She says it making a odd noise mid way down the car and it won't turn over. There is a warning of handbrake inoperable on the dash. Is there any way the car can start with this issue? She managed to manually turn off the auto handbrake but it still won't start. The car is still in warranty thankfully (just) however do you guys know if the warranty is affected if you have the rear discs and pads changed else where other than a Toyota dealership? I got them changed 6+ months ago at a different garage due to the cost saving. Cheers Ash
  10. Yes I did but I'm currently abroad and am looking to have them bought so they are waiting for me on my return to the uk. Cheers
  11. I'm looking to get the OEM part numbers for the front disc and pads for my Yaris. Would anyone have access to supply these numbers? im needing them as the brakes for my car come up with 2 different sizes, I've phoned eurocarparts and they said they need the OEM part number to determine the correct parts for my car. my reg is SY12VYC. Thanks in advance. Ash
  12. Would anyone happen to know the part numbers for the discs and pads as eurocarparts need these numbers to tell what aftermarket versions will fit. Reg SY12VYC.
  13. I don't but I'm sure I can hold of one, and idea on the pads though? As I'm not sure how to check what ones would fit.
  14. Hi guys, I'm needing to but new front disc & pads but i'm having trouble knowing what ones to get. When i type in the reg (SY12 VYC) in euro car parts it comes up with 2 slightly different options and that i need to check the fitment option tab. Can any one assist in knowing what would be the correct ones to go with. Also would anyone know how to find out what my engine code would be? Thanks in advance. Ash
