  1. If I've had any sort of feeling of judder from the brake peddle when braking it's always been the disc's being warped slightly, it feels like the brake peddle is pulsing under your foot.
  2. I'm with Gerg on this one, it's free buy the way, put Vehicle Smart app on your phone, put any reg number in and it gives you any vehicle mot history and how much the road tax is, I use it all the time when looking for cars, all the advisories and fails, gives you an idea how the car has been looked after, plus should you ever have an accident run the other reg through it, if it's not MOT'd it's probably not taxed either.
  3. A bit steep that, I bought a good set off Ebay for about £15 with the retread tool, you thinking of giving up driving if you think you will only use it once.
  4. If you had a vauxhall you'd be buying 4, they come as one piece.
  5. I can't see me ever being able to afford an electric vehicle even though my yearly mileage would suit one, one reason by the time I could the batteries would need replacing and that's a price a lot of people would pay for a car, the other reason is they keep banging on about how they cheap they are to run, I don't know about anyone else on the forum but my electricity bill is twice as expensive as my gas even with the price increase. I live in a 3 bed bungalow, gas central heating and gas hob, all lights now LED, changed the built in oven, freezer and fridge to more energy efficient and electric is more than double the yearly gas price, even in the summer last year the electric was more than the gas and we were living on salads.
  6. Pulling the belt out isn't the problem, it's fastening the clip. When the grandchildren get in, they can't always reach them and when they can, the clip sometimes goes either under the seat they're sitting on or pushes down below the cushion, the extender will make it more reach able for them and us, who them have to climb in the car to fasten the belt for them.
  7. I've looked at a lot and all claim to fit but will they, we tried to put our daughters extenders into the Yaris which were supposed to be universal and they wouldn't fit, that's why I posted the question, has any Yaris member fitted any and which one's.
  8. Not on the child seat, it wraps around like a proper seat belt, the seat is free and the seat belt straps the seat in and the child in the seat. I take it no one has a Yaris with grandchildren if they have never come across them and the problem of trying to fasten a seat belt.
  9. They're only 12cm long, the seat belt clip is only just level with the seat, with a child seat in, with the child in it's really difficult to reach over to the point you nearly have to get in the back of the car with them, hence the wife got locked in, it makes them easier to reach over the car seats and clip in.
  10. Hi all, has anyone fitted any seatbelt extenders in their Yaris, my daughter has them in her Ford mondeo and they're great, putting the grandchildren in the back of a Yaris is hard work and you have to climb in to reach the seat belt buckles. The wife got in the car the other week and the door closed on her and she couldn't get out because the child locks were on. I've seen a lot of extenders claiming to be universal but unsure so wondered if any members had used them and which one did they purchase.
  11. Stop pulling up to near the curb, you can drive up them but they rip the trim off when you reverse back.
  12. I read through a lot of threads on here about the TPMS, if only I had gone on here first , instead of reading through the useless handbook which doesn't even mention the TPMS or show you the tyre warning light or the reset button. We got a flat tyre and we had just been shopping, not a problem unloaded the boot and chucked everything in the car, spare wheel and wheel spanner out, bugger jacks in the car unloaded the car got the jack out from under the passenger seat, bugger I'm to close to the kerb to use, not going well but at least I have the lock nut spanner and the space saver was inflated. Now the question, had 2 tyres fitted at the rear told them the pressure was 32lbs but they put 35lbs, I didn't see anyone reset the system, the tyre warning light was out when I started the car, so when home I checked the pressures when cold (over inflated) I'm thinking that when tyres are inflated and you press the reset button for 3 secs it remembers that pressure, (correct me if I'm wrong) now I have inflated the tyres to correct pressure, I'm assuming I have to press the reset button to over ride the last reset, is that how it works.
  13. You didn't mention when the plugs were last changed or if ever, they are long life plugs, but they recommend changing them at around 60k they're not cheap being iridium and they'll cost you around £38 for a set of 4
  14. I was always told that if your car engine won't turn over and if the car is facing a wall, if not get someone to watch them, turn your lights on and turn the key and try to start the car, if the lights go out it's the battery if they don't it's the starter.
  15. It's not just cats thefts either, they pinched all the road side grates last week where I live before 10pm, 29 I think.
