  1. Hi all, thank you for your responses it was very helpful. I did end up buying the module and just fit it today. I have to say, it is great and my only regret is that I should've gotten this sooner. It's a good piece of kit and all the OEM steering controls, reversing camera still works. It also allows for voice input through Google assistant. The only 2 downsides are that the resolution of the Android auto screen is quite low but this is due to the limitations of the headunit itself, and the call quality over Bluetooth is very low however I worked around this by taking my calls through the headunit itself. Aside from these 2 points it's a great addition to the car. The kit supplier was quite helpful as well, helping me out with the installation through WhatsApp.
  2. Thank you for your response. Do they have anything like this for a 2018 c-hr? I thought it had to be anything after 2020.
  3. Hi everyone, Happy New Year! I was wondering if anyone on this forum have tried to retrofit their touch 2 go systems with android auto? I have done some research and found this box: https://autoextra.ro/en/produs/carplay-and-android-auto-integration-for-toyota-touch2-2013-2018/ Speaking to the above vendor through their website it seems like a relatively easy installation. Your thoughts would be much appreciated. My car is a 2018 C-hr
  4. Hi TonyHSD, thank you for your response. I think it gets quite bad during warmer weather. I did ask the dealership to look at it but they couldn't replicate it possibly because it was much cooler that day? Anyone else suffering from this issue? Some research online suggests that it could be a greasing issue or a problem with the intermediate steering shaft. Many thanks again
  5. Hello, I just noticed a knocking noise when moving the steering wheel very slightly. It only happens when the car is stationary or when making small adjustments in stop start traffic. I checked the tie rods but everything seems normal, no issues from the suspension either. Is this normal behaviour? It will only happen once then stop, then again after moving the wheel from my normal driving position after some time. Many thanks in advance for your help.

    Loose rattle

    Hello, have you guys suffered from a rattle noise coming from the dash? It sounds like a loose bit of plastic or rock that moves around when going over bumps, around roundabouts, braking or accelerating quickly. Any help would be highly appreciated. Thank you

    Brake discs

    Many thanks for your responses everyone. Apologies this is my first hybrid hence I'm still getting used to some of these things.

    Brake discs

    I should add that the braking performance is not affected and there are no noises etc. Many thanks in advance.

    Brake discs

    Hi, my c-hr is at 30k miles and I am a bit concerned about the condition of the brake discs. Please see the attached photo. During the vehicle healthy check toyota said they are fine but just rusty. The lines are not scores but rather high ridges. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
  10. Hi, no no not that at all. I appreciate the answers I got o of course and I've thanked everyone as well. I went on to Honest John because I was told there are quicker responses there.
  11. I think it's when the hill hold disengages and the car starts to move, the brake pads do get worn a bit. Same for adaptive cruise control, as the rear brakes may be used to slow it down(based on research on Volvos and VWs). Could there be any other reason for the rear pads to wear faster than the front ones?
  12. Cheers, yeah just wanted to confirm that. But is it really going to be that bad? I'm gonna get the rear pads replaced soon then stop using hill hold. Let's see how it goes.
  13. Hello, my 2018 C-HR hybrid is at 29.7k miles. During the 30k service, the dealer mentioned that my rear pads are at 5mm. The front ones are still 8mm. Having done some research online it looks like the rear pads may wear faster due to using the hill hold function or the auto electronic parking brake. Have any of you guys faced something similar? Just a bit confused as I thought the front ones would be the first to be worn out. Also when replacing the rear pads should I get the discs done as well? They seem fine with no significant wear or lip. Many thanks in advance for your help.
