  1. Lol, I have moved on from this car years ago but since I did the same set up in my new car I'll try and explain. The display is meant to be mounted on the dashboard facing you. So when you mount it at the back of the car facing forwards its the wrong way. I.E. Its reversed. So now when you look in the mirror at the display the mirror flips it back the correct way again. So left side is left side and right is right. The numbers are a little messed up but it's easy to read and correct in ones head. I mainly used the LED Squares any how.
  2. Yes, mine already had 6 speakers installed. So I just replaced speakers using original OEM wiring.
  3. I can believe that.. Stretching the truth to make the car more saleable.....
  4. No I haven't manually worked it out yet.. Lost my receipts. Next tune.. Lol But a lot websites are giving these figures for this car As as my driving was mostly motorway. Going with extra-urban..
  5. This was from my first full tank.. This car has 50L tank where as the auris was 55L... Could've try to break 700miles but as I don't know this car I am working up to it.. Lol
  6. You said it was cranking but not starting.. If it's cranking the starter is OK... If you hear nothing but a click from the starter solenoid then yes maybe, the starter needs a light tap....
  7. Thanks I got the exhaust done here And had them just change it for longevity. Bit redundant now.. Lol I did have them remove this as it wasn't needed... And I don't have a dpf, so I didn't need to worry there. I just chose a dual pipe for looks.... This was spur of the moment decision on the day.
  8. Thinking about it I should've taken some pics before getting rid of the car These are the last pics I took from my service about 2 months ago... And about 6 months ago while I was getting my new exhaust done. This was the colour of the oil when I checked the levels at 12,000 miles. It's not brilliant and if you look through the dirt on the body, lol, you can see it was still in good nick.... A reliable and trustworthy car.....
  9. Firstly thanks, I've always believed that using a good oil that exceeds Toyota spec will allow more milage between oil changes... The auris proved me right. But I do realise it does also depend on the style of driving one is doing. For me, because my commute to and from work is all motorway; I only drove about 55-60mph and never booted the car unless necessary, I never put the engine under unnecessary stress... It just poodle along. So I choose to increase the oil change intervals to suit my sitiation. If I was a town driver I'd be doing every 10,000 as suggested by Toyota...
  10. I was on the motorway all the time I saw no point in washing the outside of car. That only ever got done when or if it went into Toyota for any reason. I did look after the inside though. I had no rust issues at all. Nothing ever popped up as advisory on MOT Etc. I never had any issues with water/moisture in the boot or light clusters. I did pamper it as in I fixed things as and when they broke, but not as in 'showroom stlye' It was mainly used as a tool to and from work and dump runs... Lol
  11. The engine and gearbox were trouble free over those years. I did have the power steering ecu go. But that was the only major problem. Like many on here I changed the scv valve and had the ecu software updated to solve my cold starting problems.... I changed my oils every 15000 miles using a good brand. I changed the gearbox oil at 200,000 miles. Original coolant and clutch. But I did do mostly motorway driving. Changed my air-conditioning fad and brake fluid every 3 years whether it needed it or not. Yes would have been fun to see if I made 300,000 with this car but the 116 r
  12. Well guys it's time for me to hang up my Auris keys and move on. I have recently p/x my Auris 2.0 D4D with 213,000+ miles for a 2014 Seat Leon 1.2 TSI DSG petrol with Tech Pack. I wanted to get an automatic as my 116 mile commute to and from work in the traffic on motorways is getting tiresome for the clutch foot..... Just so many accidents and traffic jams on M1 and M25 now... Also, this car is more economical than the diesel Auris .... I'd like to thank everyone who has helped me out over the 8 years of owning the car. To any new comers here look around, do your searches as
  13. Can't seem to edit my own post, so I quoted myself, lol Anyways I just wanted to add a pic showing which pipe to leave off while you pump/prime the fuel pump.. Hope this helps......
  14. Looking at the fuel filter, I believe the pipe to the front left is the pipe you leave disconnected for priming.. What I did to identify the correct pipe, was pull this pipe off and just press the plunger on the fuel pump.. Fuel will hopefully squirt out. So once you have replaced the filter, leave only this pipe disconnected and just press the plunger repeatedly until fuel pumps out.... Catch it in a towel or small cup. Then reconnect the pipe and press the plunger again a few more times until it firms up. Then refit all air filter pipework and box and start the car....
