    Toyota Avensis Workshop Manual 2003 -2007 Pdf

    Yes Scott just tried it again myself. Happy New Year to all, sorry I don't get on here much these days. Both our 2009 Yaris and 2007 Avensis flew through the MOT again yesterday without a single problem from new (MOT wise) just normal service parts , they both look and feel as good as new. Kindest regards, Pete

    Replacement Windscreen With Toyota Insurance

    Thanks everyone, I have been authorised by the very nice people at Toyota insurance to have my windscreen replaced at a Toyota dealership and that makes me a lot happier and Mike ...... I don't do second best lol. Regards Pete
  7. Hello again after a forum break, I have my car insured with Toyota, has anyone any comments to make on having a windscreen replaced on an Avensis T25 T-spirit 2007, I think I would prefer a genuine Toyota screen supplied by my local dealership rather than some glass company and yes I realise that a glass company will/may come to the dealership to fit it. I just seem to remember sometime ago a couple of members may have had problems with glass companies supplying screens that did not fit correctly OR had problems with the electronic bits and pieces mounted on the screen. Thanks in advance, Pete.

    Can You Identify This Head Unit Please? Whats Navi?

    Sorry for the delay mate, don't get on here much these days, yes its Decuma grey and for anyone ordering reversing sensors off ebay the Iron grey ones are a near perfect match but dont buy that colour for spraying on bodywork :-). By the way the TNS 310 satnav is garbage, a monochrome disply and does not support post codes, the audio side does play mp3 data cd's and it will take up to 6 discs in the slot. Regards Pete.

    Reverse Gear Hard To Engage?

    Toyota should repair it for free as 2012 models came with a 5 year warranty.

    Code Reader

    Don't assume that the TRC/VSC fault light is due to a fault with the TRC/VSC this can be caused by a faulty/dirty egr valve on the diesel engine, when the engine won't respond correctly to instructions from the ecu it goes into limp mode and will put the TRC light on so check the egr valve first. Pete.

    Please Help, My Wifes Killed The Car.

    Forget the Easystart Joe, it wont help. I hope I'm wrong but the ecu may be at fault. Pete.

    04 Avensis Not Starting

    Sounds like the battery to me and those fault codes wouldn't cause this fault. Pete.

    Brake Disks

    Under most driving conditions brake disc/rotor warping is a myth, the vibration you feel back through the pedal in most cases is caused by the pad friction material being transfered onto the rotor. The only way to get over this is to fit matching discs and pads, you may be able to get these from a motor factors but the best way is to fit genuine and in this case Toyota parts. In most cases fitting parts from other suppliers will or may be ok, we have all done it and got away with it but fitting two sets can be more expensive than fitting one genuine set. Also when replacing the new discs make sure the face of the hub is clean where it mates up with the back of the disc along with where the back of the road wheel bolts on to the front face of the disc and then torque the wheel bolts up correctly. Pete.
