  1. Use a mole wrench - or equivalent...Tighten up as far as possible so you have a strong grip. Spray with Rust Remover .or vinegar DO NOT USE WD40 - it does not dissolve rust. Vinegar - or Coca Cola - canned - does dissolve rust...(I am serious see You Tube - it works - it also rots teeth_ Leave 24 hours and repeat Leave another 24 hours.. Tighten a little first. And then use a Very light hammer and tap gently to release -- just a little - and retighten .. and repeat.. .(the shock is better than brute force applied by hand) If you do it slowly and carefully you will eventually remove the nipple.. The working to and fro dislodges the rust ... (Used this technique on glow plugs as well where a snapped one is an expenive PIA_
  2. Autotrader search will find you several.. But rare - and travel to find a good one..
  3. "Fast clicking sound when I turn the key" is the starter motor relay failing to enage properly. Caused by: (in order of lowest cost) faulty earth- clean and remake. or Low battery voltage - check with a voltmeter. Try charging battery . Or replacing Or faulty starter motor.. But until you test the baove and PROVE they are OK.. unlikely. If the battery is more than 6 years old it is likely FUBAR
  4. There are two fuseboxes: one under the steering wheel and one under the bonnet..And about 10 earthing points..So IF (and it's questionable) it's not a fuse, finding the problem requires more skills than Halfords have.. But I suggest it sounds like a fuse gone.. Or two.. The radio is fused through a a 15A fuse DOME. Unfortunately I am trying to raed with an old set of spectacles having just broken my latest ones and the Haynes wiring diagrams are small... so it's difficult to read.. Sorry.
  5. 14" was standard. No 13" option. Wrong wheels or tyres. Check wheel diameter..
  6. These engines tend to burn a little oil. Annual mileage? Rattle on startup? low oil pressure.. Most likely chain which is tensioned by oil pressure. So as above: 1. Correct oil and oil level 2. Correct type filter .Cheap ones are a waste of moeny.. Toyota Orginal Equipment in not dear. 3 Service it regularly. It sounds as if you are trying to test it to destruction. You will succeed.
  7. Winter Brakes grabbing.(hand brake?) Tracking. Exhaust blocked Faulty engine temperature sensor meaning rich fuel mixture..
  8. Last time I had this problem was on a 1946 Rover 16.(half a century ago..eek!) Worn tyres/ poor tracking were the issue. New tyres and retracking solved it..
  9. Err the high voltage system contains capacitors. If these discharge through your body, you can die. You MUST wear conducting gloves to ensure if you make a mistake you don't put a high voltage through your body to earth..And working on the hybrid electronics really requires some training in hybrid electronics.. (Car Mechanics had an article recently on it)
  10. Never adjusted the one in our Yaris D4D in 13 years of ownership..(it is exceptionally wide and deep)
  11. Haynes shows several options : These are for a NEW belt Electric power steering: 4.5 to 5.5mm Hydraulic power steering: 8.5 to 10.5mm
  12. You can speed up the burping if you squeeze the lower rubber hose to the radiator and then the upper one.. engine off and radiator cap off..
