  1. Not wishing to turn this thread into a dealer score chart I have used Howards at Weston for our Yaris and Rav and before that 2 Avensis and always found them to be top notch on all counts. I am ex motor trade so know a good and bad dealer - trust is a big thing and relationships are two way. top notch as well is a Parts King !
  2. Hi, I’ve just changed to Michelin Cross Climates on my 2013 2.2 Icon. The difference tyre noise surprised me, so much nicer to drive as well as quieter on all surfaces
  3. It’s a clip for mounting either a tag for the French peage network or the old Severn Bridge toll tag
  4. Hi, I am considering replacing my 2.2D 2013 Icon and 2006 Yaris for a single vehicle, a 2018 2.0 petrol CVT, ideally AWD and auto box Any experiences please good or bad and also as it relates to towing a caravan. Thanks Rob
  5. Hi I need to remove the front bumper (or so it appears) to gain access to the horn on our 2006 Yaris T Spirit Any one have any pics to highlight the fixings or general instructions please Many thanks
  6. Hi, for what's its worth on the subject of Rav tow cars whilst my 2013 2.2 isn't an auto it's probably the best tow car we have had. Tows a 1400 kg caravan with ease, plenty of reserve power and no problems with the handling.
  7. Northern Lad Thank you for your reply. I give it a thrashing once a month and avoid cheap diesel. It also gets a tin of BG244 now and again. i did all this with my old T180 and the poxy EGR valve still blocked !! your reply is appreciated, I will leave the valve alone.........
  8. Can anyone help me with the location of the EGR valve on my 2013 2.2 diesel Fuel consumption has taken a dive - last time this happened on my T180 a clean of the EGR valve and ports made a massive difference. Thanks
  9. I have a rather annoying rattle coming from the top of the dash on my 2013 Rav Icon. Its there under acceleration and the warmer the weather (and dash) becomes the more obvious it is. I can get rid of it by pressing on the top of the dash. I've tried eliminating it by strategic placing of bits of foam but this is a very short term fix Any one else with a like problem on a 2013 on model please If it s a common problem it will be easier or me to go to Mr T for a warranty resolve Thanks
  10. Hi, we have been towing successfully our 1300 kg caravan with our 2013 2.2 manual for the last two years. We've been down to the Alsace region of France via the Ardennes with no problems and it quite happily runs along in 5th or even 6th on the motorways at 60mph. Get the Lower gear changes in early, keep the revs up and it's running as a really good tow car. Clearly we are well within its maximum towing weight
  11. There was an issue with some engine variants drive belts ( ours is a 1.3) which required a modified belt. We had exactly the same problems as you described which were cured instantly by the modified genuine Toyota belt
  12. We have had three 1.3 Yaris, a 2001 auto, 2006 manual and a 2008 manual. All 3 have had no engine or gearbox problems. The 2008 one has approaching 80000 on the clock and the 2001 had 60000 before someone shunted it up the back and wrote it off !! our neighbour had an old T reg 1 litre, 120000 on the clock when they swapped it for another Yaris. No problems but they did say it was a bit lacking in power, not unsurprisingly
  13. I am really grateful for your answer. We don't want squeaks and noise on start up so that's the way to go Thanks again
  14. I have found a new drive belt which I am sure I acquired when we got our Yaris Part number is 90916W2017 and appears to be 6pk1760 I need to know if it is compatible with a Yaris 1.3 TR on an 08 plate (with air con) Can anyone help please. I have tried doing a part number comparison on various sites but cant get a definitive answer Many thanks
  15. May not be connected in your case but we had the same problem when we bought our 06 plate 1.3 It turned out to be the drive belt - there is a modified belt apparently which was fitted by Mr T under the used car 12 month warranty. That was nearly three years ago now and no problems since Some cars are affected others not. Daughter has a 08 1.3 and never had a problem with squeaks. Plenty of air con probs though !!!
