  1. 328mm rotor is matched with a dual-piston caliper which as far as I know is only available on the hybrid version (UK only - not sure about elsewhere).
  2. When using the trickle charger you should also make sure that the charging current is less than 5A. This is normally stated on the top of your battery pack (Panasonic OEM). Note that this is for the hybrid, I don't know if it is the same for non-hybrid.
  3. After some investigation, the last 2 letters of the part number (89341-42060-2B) indicate the colour of the painted part. 2B is grey, you will need to check with your local dealer for the exact colour code matching your bumper.
  4. It does sound like your sensor is still working and was only unseated from the bumper. When I destroyed a rear sonar on mine there was a Parking Assist Malfunction error on the dash immediately. You will probably need to take the front bumper off to inspect if there's any damage to the mounting clip or the sensor itself. If things go well then unplug the sensor and reseat the sensor from the outside of the bumper and re-plug the wire harness. The hole on the bumper should have a small cut-out that lets you push the sensor in at an angle. Part numbers: Sensor 89341-42060-2B, Clip 8934
  5. You can also check the vehicle specs as installed at factory: https://www.toyota-tech.eu/Euro5.aspx Just need to input your VIN number.
  6. I also went with this but ordered a pair of harness from Aliexpress with the leads pre-soldered (Toyota Speaker Wire Harness Adapter Tacoma 2016). Everything went smoothly but I did have to re-drill the Alpine mounting holes so the existing screws could fit. The new speakers sound a lot clearer so 32 quids well spent and thank you both for the suggestion.
  7. Here are what I can find: 3, 4, 5, 6 (B, W, P, R): to microphone 13, 14, 15 (R, GR, Y): to intrusion sensor 1, 18 (W, W): to map light switch DOOR/OFF/ON (1 is constant 12V, 18 is controlled by the ECU to fade from 0V to 12V when a door is open and then closed) 20 (W): ground Hope it helps but please do double check with voltmeter etc.
  8. Looks to me 114kW is the output of the combustion engine alone. AFAIK the only 2.5L engine on offer in GB was the hybrid 2AR-FXE (4th gen Rav)
  9. This item looks like it has the same grey connector as yours but please do double check compatibility: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TOYOTA-CAMRY-SUPRA-T100-01-REAR-LEFT-ABS-WIRE-ML1033-4/271003654640
  10. Does switching the AC on and off have any bearing on the noise?
  11. Vanguard is petrol only with either 2.4 AZ or 3.5 GR engine. According to this, some 2AZ engines before 2007 are affected with an issue where head bolt threads going out can lead to head gasket failure. If yours indeed has a 2AZ engine it might be worth checking with a Toyota dealer to see if your engine is among this batch as it can be a borderline model? Presumably a sniff test was done to determine it is head gasket? If so you will likely need to take the head off to find out the actual cause and if it is the problem above then recommended fix is threaded holes to be rebored and a new
  12. 9320 miles are 15000km so the app writer must have been lazy in researching actual service intervals for the UK.
  13. This looks like Toyota's own attempt at moose test with the Rav4 [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbVpZate_Qg[/media]
  14. I believe this is the same as lightly applying the brake pedal to trigger regenerative braking. Under the right conditions the engine completely cuts off and inertia is turned into electricity slowing the car down. One thing I'm not quite sure about is whether the brake lights would come on at this point, otherwise it behaves rather similarly to engine braking on non-hybrid cars.
