    Tpms sensors

    Thanks insurance is fine with it. They even more happy because winter/snow tyres provide more safety during the winter season so maybe stick with current 17 inch wheels, just swap the tyres? 17 inch tyres itself is around £360 fitted 16inch wheels and tyres is around £360 fitted as well but without sensors. thanks

    Tpms sensors

    Hello everyone I’m planning to fit steel 16 inch wheels with wither tyres to my car(currently 17 inch alloys with tpms) Can I use these wheels without TPMS? Do you know if I will get a Warning light message about tyre pressure? I’d rather get wheels with no tpms as they are costly and reprogram costs thank You for Your help
  3. Hi all I collected my car today. The garage claims that it was leaky condenser and no other leaks. All replaced. Hopefully the air con is fixed now. I will let you know in the next few months or next year to see if that was a permanent fix thank you for your kind help👍🏻
  4. Yes but I mean his particular car should be r134a.😀 thanks
  5. Auris hybrid uses r134a - same gas as all cars around world. The difference is the compressor oil - ND11 non conductive as the compressor is electric not belt driven. You need to find a good garage which will “regas” and use ND11 oil as specs in hybrids. The cost should be same as usual plus you will need to pay extra for your “hybrid oil”(lets say £10-15£ more) £130 that’s current Toyota price. It is a total rip off. £130 for air con regas it’s Bentley or Aston Martin range isn’t? my auris has air con problem but because it loose a gas quick I complaint for warranty repair and currently is under repair. I had few cars before Toyota but never needed “regassing” or “top up” previous vehicles. before auris I had mercedes 2001 year for 8 years and never had an problem with air condition despite it was an old car with high mileage. Good air con will not leak - based on my car experience. Thank you thanks Matt
  6. Hi all I did a complaint to Toyota UK regarding my issue. next day I had an call from my local dealer and was asked to bring it for warranty repair. Today got update that allegedly they traced the leak and it leaks from condenser. According to my service adviser car should be fixed and ready by Friday. will update then thanks
  7. Thanks guys yes they keep saying that there is no leak but obviously the leak is there. I agree that they waiting for warranty to expire so then they charge me. I could go to specialist garage but why should I pay for it if car is still under warranty. Thanks for encouraging me😀 Thank You I will update
  8. Thanks would you recommend anyone? Or shall I make an complaint to toyota as car is still under warranty thanks
  9. Hello everyone I will need a help please My air con is not cold enough. Over the weekend was a nice weather so I was using it but air con “just “managed to keep cooling on high blast and it only was 22 degrees (Celsius)I had air con checked by useless Toyota main dealer three times within 12 months. Every time I was told that there is no leak just needs recharging and once was charged radiculous £90. Well based on my experience in all my previous cars I never needed to recharge or top up air con 3(three) times within 12 months. I never turn air con button off even during winter I know that the gas is 134a as most cars but hybrid uses different oil , I think that it’s dielectric non conducive oil Can anyone please help or recommend a good garage in North West London or maybe you could suggest what I need to do or is it me doing something wrong? Thank You
  10. Sorry I thought that all DRL are LED’s. 😀 Thanks
  11. Hello thanks for your reply I already checked that before and unfortunately there is no such details. The only info about LED day lights is to contact your local Toyota dealership Thanks
  12. Hello everybody I have an Auris Hybrid 2014 and I have a question relating headlights I noticed that low beam is very poor so I upgraded bulbs for better visibility. I installed white light pattern bulb instead of dull yellow. It’s much better now but I tried to match it to standard DRL(side light) which are on all the time. Now my low beam are nice and white but DRL are yellow compared to low beams so I would like to replace DRL’s as well. I googled what kind of bulb goes there and looks like it’s 501 w5w but the owners manual says nothing regarding type of bulb. I tried access there but it looks like it’s a sealed unit or is it me doing something wrong? I don’t want to break anything and decide to seek for an advice online first. I would be very thankful if anyone could help and guide me how to replace this bulbs. I do believe there must me an access even for service matter but I didn’t work it out yet. thanks
