    Mot Time

    well took the rav for mot today ,sat buy the phone just waiting for the outcome for 2 hours and what a result passed first time no problems. only thing that was wrong was a bulb had gone in the brake light at the top of back wind screen. but did not fail on that , just been and got a new one £2 and its working again now , over all i am one very very happy bunnie. :D :D :D :D :D :D oh and can someone please advises me on my eariler post http://toyotaownersclub.com/forums/index.p...howtopic=106033
  10. hi room , been trying to set the cruise information display for about 2 hours this morning , at the moment it read in km/h. which makes no sence at all to me , so trying in vain to get it to mpg,mph fairly simple i thought , and how wrong i was . this is what i have been doing , owner manual to set the unit, push the "TIP/NAV" button untill display appears.( all ok to here) then push the "MODE.ENT" knob, and turn it to select unit ( this is where it wont work just comes up with bass volume) there are 3 units: 1. 1/100km, km/h 2.km/1, km/h 3.mpg/ mph ( which is the one i want) aftersetting the unit, push the "MODE.ENT" knob until the display returns to audio control mode. can someone try this and see if it works , ive tryed it with Engnition on and off and with the car running still no joy , starting to get on my nerve now, it was set on mpg/mph, untill i borrowed the car to my dad for the weekend , and he had to go and play with it lol . but he did comment on how nice the rav was to drive and all the room in the back, mindyou he would he drives a bmw mini cooper. thanks for taking the time to read this jibb
  11. hi windinherhair, can you pm me the part number of the new fuel filtercap when you get it off kingo please if it aint to pricey think i might fit it myself , with the help of anchormans great instuctions. and one more thing to anyone that knows ( that you anchorman ), does this noise do any harm, if it does not , might even live with it for the time been just turn the cd player up and the noise is gone :D
  12. thanks for the replys , same again this morning, started ok but not first time i no it cold, on my van i have to warm plugs up twice in this weather ( diesal van ) . today the light came on again this time it went of after about 30 secounds , just hope your right mate , and its the weather . and just for you got a new avater a xmas one mmmmmmm lol put it on later .. this ones a little bit more lol ... :D :D :D
  13. well apart from the promblem with my rav 4 , i must be a lucky boy i ordered one yesterday and they was in stock then . mine you i will never get around to fitting it lol
  14. http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/...tegoryId_165579 think it must be a mistake :D :D :D :D :D by halfords , but for that price worth a try ..
  15. hi all , aint been on for a while due to work . hope you are all well ( ravs that is ) . any way got up today to go shopping , went out to start the rav to let it warm up a bit , and for the first time ever it did not start first time. anyway i had only drove 30 yards when i noticed the MAILFUNCTION INDICATOR LIGHT had came on , never seen this before and hope i never do again . it went of after about 5 mins, and has not came on sinces . as soon as i got back i check the hand book , omg first thing i read was the boost pressure in the turbo charger is abnormally high , omg not a new turbo , after not that long ago having the dmf changed i am thinking , oh no not more money . but having sat and thought about it the car was covered in snow and the inlet on the bonnet was nearly covered in snow just wondering if it that could of been the problem , ie when i started it this morning it sucked in some snow and that may be the reason why it did not start first time , and for the reason why the malfuntion light came on after for that short time , well thats what i am hoping . any kind responce would be great , but if it is the turbo i afraid my baby will have to go , just cant afford a new turbo at the moment . cheers jibb
  16. hi all aint been on for a while now which is good news, rav is running like a dream , anyway ran out of shampoo , i have been useing Meguiars Gold Class Car Wash Shampoo and Conditioner for a long time now great product does what is says on the tin . just wondering if anyone has found any think better, my rav is silver so what ive been using has been working well , along with the meguiars clasic gold wax. so if anyone has found an old or new product which will give me a real hi gloss finish let me now , many thanks jibb

    New Tyres

    Hi room, have not been on here in some time but still have a look on here to see what’s going on. Anyway the time has come now to replace my tyres on the rav, I have been reading up on this subject, but there are so many different opinions on this subject. Just looking for a bit of advice of people on here, who have purchase new tyres for there rav in the past few months, who are happy with their choice of tyres. Many thanks looking forward to your replies
  22. why bother cleaning them now after 3 years well its just passed its mot and feeling a bit sorry for it now lol ,, and going to sell it soon :D
  23. hi room , after some advise its about alloy wheels they have not been cleaned for over 3 year nor has the car , and no no no its not my rav that gets cleaned ever week it my old escort van . i no its not correct to ask about any other car on a toyota site but , i no people on here have some great tips .. so back to my wheels, like i said i have not cleaned the alloys nor the van in over 3 years and as you can imagine the brake dust it so burnt on now nothing ive tryed will touch them ,, ive tryed wonder wheels , halfords wheel cleaner , and symons wheel cleaner and not one of them has touched them . im thinking of trying brick acid ( 1 part acid 5 parts water ) just not sure if brick acid will affect the tires . any adive on cleaning these alloys would be great other wise its going to be the brick acid , ohh and by the way i aint that bothered if the alloys get a bit knackerd as long as they look clean and dont knacker up my tires .
  24. hi ya again , just wondering if any one has any tips on this problem. as you can see from the below pics , my drivers side seat has a few marks and scraches on it , mainly down to wear and tear ( and rivets on jeans ) . just hoping someone has come across this before , i am hoping there is some kind of black leather care product on the market , i have tryed black shoe polish with no joy , the seats on my car have been regually cleaned and protected by autoglym , looks like it aint that good . any advise would be great , looking forward to your replys .. cheers jib
