  1. Thanks for that I wouldn't be able to do them myself and to be honest the prices aren't too bad. let us know what you think of the drive on the car once you've had all the dreaded RF's replaced
  2. Can I just ask if you don't mind how much is it costing you to refurb the alloys? i am thinking of getting mine done too.
  3. The EGR valve is a simple job which you could do yourself. I had my friend do mine for me as I'm disabled but it was straightforward there is a guide somewhere on here. the tyre sensors will work fine without the runflats
  4. That's not a bad price to be honest. i paid £15 per tyre and the tyres I bought online and must admit they are good tyres. omce you've had them all done the difference in the ride is immense and noticeable straight away. Do let your insurance company know mine didn't make a difference to the premium but I did ask them to make a note and a confirmation just in case which they were happy to do so. let us know what you think of the ride once you e had them all done
  5. The sensors will work fine without the runflats. they work as they should and will light up when the air pressure drops to around 25psi. its a quite straightforward something you maybe able to do yourself if you ha e the right tools. mine were taken off by and Indy garage his cut round they tyres to remove them and then used an angle grinder to cut the bands took less than an hour and the car drives and feels a lot better. i replaced the tyres with Nokian all season tyres from tyre leader after reading all the reviews for them. hope that helps
  6. I had mine removed the tyre pressure sensors work fine with normal tyres. i rang my insurance and there was no increase in premium either. the car drives a lot better now and it's worth doing I have had a puncture once and it was a lot easier than having the car taken to Toyota as an Indy garage sorted a replacement
  7. Not sure what size I had a full set but someone's borrowed it and not bought it back. Hopefully someone should be able to answer
  8. You will need the Torx security drivers to take the ECU out. I can't remember the exact name but if you go up further on the thread someone has put a link up. Most common ones are 6 star type but Toyota use the 5 star bits. it is straight forward to take out
  9. The T180 unit is the B9004 (just checked in my T180) The B9010 Is fitted in the Avensis and earlier Rav's The settings are basically the same except the B9010 does not have the Bluetooth phone function.
  10. Is the unit still available?And how much are you looking for the unit Thanks
  11. HiOn a personal experience Toyota advised us that it was the gearbox. We took it to a specialist in gearboxes and he advised the same and offered to recondition the gearbox. Toyota went on to say that the ECU was not something that would cause a problem. I came on here and read the advice in here and sent the ECU to ECU testing. The ECU was faulty and was quoted a price and the ECU was back in the car repaired and guaranteed for life within 4 days. The car is fantastic and drives as it should. I'd rather send the ECU off it does sound as if that's the problem. Toyota will quote you £1000's when it's a simple fix. Good luck and keep us updated Sorry forgot to add link here it is and all the best http://www.ecutesting.com/contact_us.html
