    Yaris windscreen washer nozzle

    I had to adjust my screenwasher as it was spraying the pavement, I used the shaft of a drill twist bit as a needle is not thick enough and it now hits the centre of the screen, thus no dry wipes from the wiper. Regards Dave
  2. " Car has been serviced as pr. Toyota's recommendations, however, we couldn't find the service manual, so the seller agreed to print copies of each service (the car was serviced by them from when it was new). " No sure if this is available in DK but the My Toyota app/website allows you to see your vehicle service details, I know this as our car had no service book and was told when I picked it up that everything is shown on this website.
  3. I have 64 reg Yaris Hybrid and have not seen any signed of corrosion in the reversing camera area, the only thing I was concerned with was scores on the rear discs, which I got checked at the local stealer and they put it on the brake test and it came back OK. Other than that my wife and I love the car. In fact it had 23338 miles when we got it in Aug 2017 and at now has 41k on the odometer. Other than usual service and MOT and replace rear discs and pads, no problems.

    What Headlight polishing kit? Mk2 Yaris 2006 model

    If you Google "headlight cleaner" you will also see toothpaste works as well! Dave

    Headlights

    Yes thats all I did, make sure you have the original beside to make sure you trim correctly. If you have the original beside the replacement one you will see the difference.

    Smell of burning rubber on steep hills

    Mike, I have checked underneath and there is nothing wrapped round the exhaust, must admit its not very often it happens just annoying, thanks for the advice. Dave

    Smell of burning rubber on steep hills

    10 months on and the smell is still there on really steep hills, also I checked and there is no chain for the drive Anthony, its from what I can see from the diagrams a belt! So I will mention it at the next service.

    2015 Yaris 1.33 VVT-I Icon opinions?

    Mark, I came from a Nissan Note to my Yaris, its a hybrid but I love the solid build and relability of Toyota, being as they are throwing in 2 free services that 20,000 or two yrs whichever come first thats a saving, plus there is 5yrs warranty. The other day I took 5 larger adults in the car usually its only my wife and I and was suprised how well it preformed.

    Lights on Yaris help

    I have a late 2014 Yaris Hybris and the only light icon is when you have sidelights on and when main beam is used, nothing for headlights.

    Cabin noise

    You could always add extra underlay/carpet to absorb the noise!

    £295 full service?

    I questioned the battery in my Yaris after 10yrs and was told by the service manager that cell can be replaced if found faulty.

    Service Plan

    I found paying monthly very useful as before I had my present vehicle I had a Nissan note and took out a 3yr service plan, last year decided to change vehicle and stopped the plan and got some money back as the services were within the monies paid. Dave

    Service Record

    I rang my local dealer to find out what the service interval was and when I gave them my vehicle registration, they informed me that it had not been serviced since 2016! I logged into My Toyota and can see the service history up to me taking the car from the dealers secondhand in August when they did an intrim service. Strange how I can see it by logging in yet Toyota Main dealer cannot! Dave

    Reason for joining

    I get an average of 61.6 mpg on a 22 miles journey, using minor roads, this mpg is worked out by filling the tank taking a mileage reading and working out the MPG that way rather than using the on board computer. Dave

    Cruise control on the cheap!

    What do you have to do to the car apart fitting the control, or does the vehicle recognise it like adding something on a pc? Dave
