  1. I know, I did the same last night. Who'd a thunk it?
  2. I'm just off the phone to my local Toyota main stealer. It seems that if I want to buy the original I'm going to have to sell a kidney after all, they want £10.50 each for them. I politely declined to buy them. 😀
  3. I've got copper washers that will do the job. I just wanted to see if I could get the original Toyota ones without having to sell a kidney.
  4. I'm going to be doing some brake work on my Avensis soon and while I have the calipers off, I'd like to replace the brake line flexible hose gaskets. Has anybody got the correct part number and/or the best place to source them?
  5. I agree. The light in the switch is just a reminder that you have the A/C switched on and it neither confirms nor denies that the A/C is working. The only thing it confirms is that the little bulb inside the switch works. If it is flickering or going on and off, either the switch or the bulb inside it is faulty, nothing else.
  6. Mine has only 72,000 on it and it's 12 years old. They are not all high mileage.
  7. On my Avensis, the lowest temp is 16°C. After that it shows LO. The difference is that if you set it to 16° or higher, the HVAC controller will get it to the dialled in temp and keep it there. If one sets it to LO, there is no lower limit. The system will just keep pumping out chilled air. If one sets their heater to Hi, the opposite will happen i.e. it will keep pumping out unlimited heat. When I put the A/C on, I can feel chilled air from the vents after only 5 seconds.
  8. I hope so, otherwise they will be a right mess by now 😀
  9. Yo Mate, this topic is more than four years old. You should really have started a new topic. Welcome to the club, mate.
  10. I've got a 2008 T180 Avensis, it goes good enough, never misses a beat and so far has been very reliable. I repaired the brake pipes at the rear but they were 11 years old so not the end of the world.
  11. I've been using Juratek pads for years in many different makes of car and had no problems at all, I highly recommend them.
  12. Can you check it yourself, measure the pads, post a picture?
