  1. I did think it was a bit of a gamble getting the software and considering I won't be keeping the car for too much longer I didn't really want to invest in a scanner. Could you please describe the paper clip test or tell me where I can find more in for as I'm not really sure what I'm looking for.
  2. Thank you I will have a look at techstream. I'm guessing the car shop used one of their scanning tools to identify which abs was faulty? Thanks for the heads up about the front sensor bolts, I have heard this before so have been spraying them with penetrating fluid past few days in case I need to get at them
  3. The last sentence when you say I could check the resistance of each sensor sounds like my next step and your most recent post about the paper clip test sounds a bit beyond my current skill level. My aim is to determine which abs sensor/ ring is not working correctly so testing the resistance of each one should tell me this? Where are the plugs for the rear sensors located so I can check them if I have understood correctly?
  4. I don't have an obd reader or an oscilloscope so unsure if there are any stored codes. Wheel bearings feel fine no play in the wheels that I have noticed or any noise. However, I haven't specifically checked that so will do that today.
  5. Hi people, been a while since I've been on here but I need some help. On my 2000 1.3 sr jap built P1 yaris the abs has been coming on around 70% of the time I press the brakes under normal braking conditions. Pulling the abs fuse in the cabin fuse box has disabled the abs, illuminated the abs warning light and stopped the problem. Trying to find the problem is tested the front abs sensors with the front jacked up and in 4th gear and got 1.3V on the right front and sensor plug and 2.7V on the front right. Hanyes manual says 1.5-2.0V so one is too high and the other too low! Unsure how I can tes
  6. Sorry to hear that hope it didn't injure you too badly. If only Toyota made the jacking point closer to the ground!
  7. Thanks for the suggestions guys. I didn't have any big concrete slabs laying around so that wasn't an option. I did however use the hockey puck idea buly cutting slots into bits of wood. I ended up jacking one side up and putting on the spare wheel then jacking the other side up and just leaving it on the jack
  8. Yeah I've been using a hydraulic jack but the jacking point is too high
  9. Hi guys, after buying my mk1 Yaris a month and a half ago I've done a few things to it and done a write up about changing the windscreen washer pump. I've also detailed the car so if anyone is interested I could also do a write up on that. My question is how do you guys jack up the rear of the car to get axle stands under it to take off the wheels? I did the front fine but the jacking point on the rear is too high off the ground to be able to lift the car with it being on the underside of the bumper.
  10. Link for the pump I used, originally shown to me by eygo 👍 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/401951485312
  11. First you need to diagnose the problem. I'm going to assume that the wipers are still working and the only faulty thing is that liquid is not coming out of the nozzles. Get a friend to stand outside the car while you turn on the front then rear washer pumps and get them to listen for a noise (whirring of a motor). Of a noise can be heard then it is most likely a blocked nozzle or pipe. If there is no noise then the pump most likely needs replacing. Toyota parts can run you upwards of £45 so I went with one off eBay for £10. If I remember I will update with how it's held up after a month o
  12. Just to clarify, where would I post my write up?
  13. I was planning on doing a write up after I'd finished but forgot to take pics along the way. Thanks I'll do that now while I'm waiting for the part to come!
  14. I just went out and checked it. The rear washer pump is making a noise when I turn it on but no liquid coming out (screen washer is topped up) but the front one does not make a noise when I turn it on. My prediction is there are two separate pumps and the rear one is clogged like you said above and the front one needs replacing. My dad is currently working on the drive but it will be clear by tommorow so I will take oit the wheel and wheel arch and see what the problem is then update you! Thanks
  15. Thank you very much eygo. I will remove the wheel arch to see if it is one pump or two separate ones then choose the appropriate link out of the two you gave me. Do you know of anyone who has had success with eBay washer pumps or is it a stab in the dark?
