  4. Hi All, Does anyone know what parts need to be changed for a full service on a Toyota Estima Hybrid 2012? The car was imported and seems to be running fine but fuel consumption is terrible. On the console of the car, I think it shows 8.8KMh to the gallon. I want to check what a full service consists of, assuming it's the usual suspects: - engine oil - oil filter - fuel filter - air filter - gear box oil and filter Greatfull for your advise. Thanks, J
  5. Hi, Try calling Lockwood they might be able to do the conversion for you. https://lockwoodinternational.co.uk/product-category/dials/dial-fascias-mph-scale/dials-mph-scale-toyota/toyota-estima-mph-dials/ They sell the parts (Facia or chip), you can change just the facia or you can have the chip installed on to your vehicle and change the facia. I have read on another forum, accident repair centers can do the conversions. Good luck and let us know how it goes. J
  6. Thanks @Paulscarbs, we're you able to find the video link? Oddly enough I saw someone remove the speedometer facia on an Estima and it seemed easy enough. I missed the final bit when the new facia was placed into the cluster though. It seems like there was some adjustments made to the speedometer needle. Was that your experience or was it just a straight swap of the facia?
