  1. If its definitely grinding, then I'd say it's probably the brake disc grinding against the disc guard behind it. Just push the guard away from the disc and try going full lock again. This has solved my problem :P Give it some when you bend it back though, because it'll just come back if you just give it a small prod.
  2. Low on fuel? My facelifted T- Sport stutters when its low on fuel, when I saw low, I mean, 3-4 bars. I also only use clutch when starting as it kicks up to 2,100 rpm If not, then it's probably just needs a basic service or something as simple as changing the plugs. May be hard to fix it first go as the problem could be caused by a number of things!
  3. Hey, Is this the average calculator or the instant one? If it constantly said 33 mpg before, that was probably on the average setting. I suppose somebody pressed the trip button and switched it to the instant calculator? The instant calc can do any number up to 100! :P Also if your average calculator doesn't update (mine didn't until I posted here for help), then reset it by holding the trip button :)
  4. This isn't in the slightest bit helpful, but I removed my parcel shelf after buying my T- Sport because it was making a rattling noise! :P Also from what I remember ginger_ros, there wasn't a gap so large you could see in to the boot, but don't hold me to it, I only had the shelf up for a week.
  5. To be fair, Yaris' have a huge problem with these bushes. A quick search on the forum will no doubt turn up numerous topics! :D
  6. Always 3 mph over bumps! People often think I'm ridiculous for taking it so slow, I don't care!
  7. Nope... All standard stuff, I've never messed with the electronics either. I think I'll let the garage charge it overnight as I don't have a charger, nor can I get my car anywhere near my house due to a skip! I'll go nuts if that doesn't work either. I'm very worried the alternator may have gone.
  8. Hey guys, I recently went away and left my battery to drain away, so obviously I jumped it, took it for a good run at high revs. Probably spent 45 minutes driving about. Subsequently, the battery drains itself when not used for 5 days or so, completely. I was always under the impression that if everything is in working order, a bit of a ragging would restore the battery. So I went to have the battery checked and I'm told the battery has no problems, it however ought to be connected to a battery charger overnight? I thought the alternator was supposed to charge it up? Can somebody please clarify for me please and also suggest solutions! Thanks I should add that I mentioned that the problem may lie with the alternator when dropping it off at Toyota, which they noted down. After the examination (not sure if they checked the alternator), they didn't discuss whether or not it could have been an alternator problem, they were quite certain that the battery needs to be charged, and that driving it would not do the same job as a charger would :S
  9. Almost impossible to parallel park a T Sport in a tight space without doing so Still can't get the 15+ meter turning circle it has around my head. As for the scraping noise, does it scrape if you full lock while moving? i.e. 3 point turn, or whatever? Mine scrapes when locking right. I've read all sorts of reasons for noises on this forum, but only one thread had the same problem. I don't know for certain about your car, but on mine, the guard that sits behind the brake disk was too close to the disk. After pushing mine back, it stopped grinding. However it's not a permanent fix as it creeps back to the scraping position.
  10. Welcome Don't mean to put a negative in, but to me, the spec, year and price don't seem to match up too well. I understand it is of low mileage, and well maintained with a number of nice little options, but £3,500 seems to be asking a little too much! Is this a dealer sale?
  11. I assume you blip the throttle a little when downshifting at motorway speeds? I myself haven't had a problem with this change. It's always 2nd gear which is notchy which I have accepted isn't likely to ever completely go away.
  12. My bad, poor reading skills :P
  13. Worn CV joints also make this sound from what I've seen on this forum!
  14. I just keep mine on average MPG setting. If you have it on the setting for actual MPG you are doing, you will find that coasting down a hill without any throttle reads as 99 MPG. Driving the car hard will make it plummet, sitting for ages with it idling will see it drop to 0 as you are not going anywhere. The average speed one, i don't really use. Yeah, that's what I keep mine on as I don't know how to use the average/ trip function! Playing 'keep above 40MPG' is a fun game :D Though having since filled up with premium its become 'keep above 4,000 RPM' :P
