    black 04 facelift corolla tsport
  1. some toyota cars are being recalled due to seat rail pins snapping. erm why aint our corolla one of them ? ive lost count of how many have snapped on here
  2. well ive been keeping an aye on the mazda mps forum for a while, now and checking on pistonheads/auto trader for a mazda 3 mps, need 5 doors now as with 2 kids is a bit of a nightmare getting them in and out of the car. aint got one yet but wont be too far away, just waiting for a nice example to come along then it will be bye bye tsport
  3. the garage checked everything and all they said all they could find was play in the steering rack ends and a shock that has a little leak, im guessing he has missed one of the above that you mention
  4. took car into garage because got a knocking coming from wheel area, they said my steering rack ends are worn, so i got them to replace them £140 it cost and the knocking is still there ffs money down the drain anyone any ideas ? when i go over bumps in the road i can hear/feel something knocking down at my wheel area

    Running Lean

    well took my maf sensor off and gave it a blow inside incase there was any muck on it, looked clean. plugged it back in and aint had lights come up yet worry over lol not that anybody was interested of course lol
  6. wondering if i can purchase a dongle to use with my phone/laptop to read codes/ecu stats etc?
  7. The description further down states they are 275mm
  8. well had my engine/tsc/vsc lights appear, taken it to garage and code says its running lean the garage said, anybody have any idea why it would run lean ? car is due a service, could it be my air filter ? my typhoon filter was red when i purchased but now it is black , dont know if this is normal and it just needs a clean but could it be causing my car to think its running lean ?
  9. anyone know if these brakes are right for our car ? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Corolla-T-Sport-Front-Drilled-Grooved-Brake-Discs-Pads-/170567095666?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&fits=Car%20Make%3AToyota%7CModel%3ACorolla&hash=item27b6975572&_uhb=1#ht_2018wt_906
  10. cant help as i dont know but this problem with our seats is a joke, both my seat pins have gone on mine, just wondered, how did you get it repaired ?
  11. what parts are they saying need to be replaced ?
  12. can you record the noise ? aint it just the heat shield that needs tightening ?
  13. all our tsports scratch easy due to the thin layer of paint they used. all the scratches on my car is going to affect my sale value which is a bit of a bummer, stupid car wash, im hoping to get 2.5 - 3k for mine early next year
  14. ive noticed the brakes to be pretty poor on the tsport , ive tried standard toyota disks and pads to ebc grooved and part drilled disks with ebc pads and still ive been disapointed, maybe get some braided brake lines will be the solution
  15. ive had my cams replaced due to excessive wear on the lobes and you could here the folowers tapping on the lobes , i posted a thread with a video of the noise a while ago. doesnt sound anything like you describe though, just thought id mention it as someone mentioned cams above. hope you get it sorted and it aint too serious. there seems to be someone selling nearly every part possible for our tsport on ebay , looks like hes broke down the whole car lol might save you a bit of cash.
