  1. Did you solve the problem with the quiet parking sensors? If so how? Post #4 on this thread suggests the steering wheel volume controls can adjust the volume of the parking sensor beeping? http://www.toyotaown...howtopic=124503 Has anyone tried this to confirm if that is the case? Or has anyone found the dealer can adjust the volume? Thanks.
  2. Thanks for the info guys and the links.
  3. We are looking into buying an Auris Hybrid. Does anyone have any tips on what to look out for when buying a 2011 Auris Hybrid? Are there any common issues with this car? Have there been any manufacturer recalls for this model? Also would anyone happen to have a PDF brochure for the 2011 model they could email me? The spec seems to have changed for 2012 so I would like to see exactly what the standard spec was for a 2011 built one and what was optional? Also regarding the Toyota sat nav I have seen the units for sale. Are they pretty much plug and play to fit in an Auris that didnt come with sat nav? Thanks in advance.
  4. Try the Avensis section: http://toyotaownersclub.com/forums/index.php?showforum=51
  5. For a Jap built 1.3 with ABS, front discs and rear drums the front toyota orginal pads part number is: 04465-YZZCJ which are about £25 If you google that part number it will give you a picture of the pads and the size. The EBC green stuff pads equivalent is part number DP21225 which are about £45. Dont go by EBC's make / model selector as it gives you the wrong pads.
  6. Air intake pipe should be held on with a clamp. It will have a screw to tighten to clamp the pipe in place. It may have been left untightened at the last service.
  7. What are you playing at? All these threads one / two months old toyotekk1 your bumping up.
  8. It doesnt matter what offset the steel wheel is, the alloy wheel offset will be different and will vary according to the width of the wheel. All I was pointing out was the alloy wheels you have bought, the same design and size fitted on the Yaris seems to have a 38 offset and on the Corolla a 45 offset. Higher offset means it sits further in the arch. Just make sure it doesnt foul / touch anything.
  9. I used 195/50/15 for a lower profile tyre but you can use 185/55. Offset will be fine.
  10. In the previous generation the bumper that had side bumper protection strips, had mounting holes for the protection strips, see picture below. If they just stuck on to the guidelines they could come off or move out of position so they are not just guidelines. These new bumpers with the protection strips moulded in look alot better. http://i.ebayimg.com/03/!BYSm9hw!m...G0T)Zw~~_12.JPG
  11. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/15-Toyota-Yaris-whee...id=p3286.c0.m14 Same design wheels off a new shape yaris says they have a 38 offset. Havent seen the above design on the old shape Yaris, only the new ones from 2006 onwards. The ones you got / in your link have a 45 offset. Parts-King on here has the same wheels listed for sale with 45 offset and says they are Corolla wheels. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...em=150341252090
  12. the offset is not 6. Email the seller to check what the offset is. Also I think they are 7J wide not 6J. It will be stamped on the wheel. I had the SR wheels for while before I got the TTE wheels but dont remember what offset they are.
