  1. Lil off topic but I used to work for a Peugeot main dealer and had to drive brand new cars on and off those twin layered transporters. Scared me s******s the first few times but you really do learn some excellent parking skills 🀣
  2. Agreed on space here. I have to stuff my old TS to get 3 kids to Middlesbrough πŸ˜‚never able to use RV mirror cos of all the bags πŸ™ˆ wouldn't change it for any other though
  3. Well today this happened. Not amused as you can imagine when this is my daily and now it's safe to crawl half a mile to the garage. Both sides being done if I can get parts on a Saturday. Pray for me πŸ˜‚ (These are 16 year old handbrake shoe clips) when they snap they make a bang and a nice grinding noise like your scraping your discs. Get the bits out and it goes clunk every wheel turn... Fun day... and weekend πŸ˜‘
  4. Did everything go well in the end? In the process of replacing all my sliders and refurbing callipers
  5. No updates for a while...apologies. Been busy and restoring my calipers since they had 16 years of rust on 3 of them. Oil leak still there but I now have the rocker gasket and O ring for TC tensioner. Will attempt it as soon as I feel brave enough. On a side note I asked MrT for some slider pins πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ let's all have a laugh at this.... for those that don't know they cost about Β£7-Β£10 πŸ˜‚ I'd rather go OEM but fk that πŸ₯΄
  6. Just came across these when looking for parts. Thought I'd post incase someone else can use them πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
  7. Haha this used to annoy me too. Had to google it myself. It will reset every time your battery is disconnected just so ya know πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
  8. Some nice looking rollas here 😍 gota say the new one is growing on me loads. Need a lottery win πŸ˜‚
  9. You are a diamond!!! Thankyou πŸ‘πŸ» I'd say your probably right considering the oil leak does start above the TC tensioner and hasn't got on the belt for it to be thrown around the engine. Fingers crossed eh πŸ˜‚
  10. My 5-25nm torque came today along with the c**k ring for the TC tensioner 🀣 will have a read at your links now πŸ‘πŸ» I've had the cover off and there is no oil at all under there. It's all low down. Could oil still get into to spark plugs from inside? I'm looking at replacing them asap anyway. Thankyou for the info on bolt torque. Last question πŸ˜‚ where do I look for manuals on fixing these specific to model? I've looked online but I'm guessing theres a website I'm missing lol
  11. Don't know if this is in the right section but though I'd have a bit of fun since I've cleaned my rolla. Got me wondering what everyone else are like? Interior... mods... decals ect. So show off your car πŸ‘πŸ» Here's my 2004 Corolla TSport. 1.8 VVTL-I with the 2ZZGE engine. She's pretty much stock except cosmetics and stereo.
  12. Try and find one that's had as much done as possible and been serviced regular. They run forever if looked after
  13. Congratulations on your first rolla πŸ‘ŒπŸ» hope you get it fixed. Will be worth it
  14. Also what sealant for the rocker gasket? Anything specific or anything to avoid. Just wana make sure I'm not getting something wrong. You lot know lol
