  1. Thanks for the reply, but the ball joint doesnt look like its replaceable and the entire assembly is a few hundred euro here in Ireland, hence the reason I was looking to buy the boot on its own. Or maybe Im missing something here and this joint can be pressed out and replaced?
  2. Wondering if someone can help me here, I've recently failed an NCT (MOT equivalent here in Ireland) for a split in a rear suspension ball joint cover. The joint itself looks fine so looking to source a replacement dust cover. Im finding it hard to source this item on its own want to avoid buying the whole assembly anyone know where I can source this, local toyota dealership doesnt seem to know if its possible to buy it on its own
  3. I had a very similar problem with my 2008 2.0 D4D avensis (240k miles on the clock), for years it got it very hard to start once the temperature dropped below 10 degrees. Had the diesel tank cleaned and flushed but still same problem got to a point where it took 10+ attempts to get it to start on a autumn/winters morning. I changed the fuel filter for a Landcruiser fuel filter, it has one extra hole allowing better diesel flow, and I've never had a problem since.
  4. Cheers for help guys... Priced two new alloys with Mr T... knew it wld be expensive... but at €910 for two its a definite non runner... and thats without tyres. Sourced 4 rims with tyres from a breakers yard for €300.. slightly marked but will do. Thanks again
  5. Cheers for that Kingo: wheres what im looking for in a 17inch:
  6. As per the title im looking to source two alloys in excellent condition for a 2008 Avensis TR 2.0 D4D.... if anyone knows where i might be able to source these please let me know as im looking for them ASAP. Cheers.
  7. So since i replaced the batter yesterday afternoon i havent seen the unlocking issue..... ill report back after a week... so far things look good
  8. Exact same thing happened again this morning.... open the door with the key alarm siren & horn was actived tried what you suggested.. i.e. turning the key in the ignition and it didnt silence the alarm siren or the horn. After repeated pressing (for 15 mins or so) of the unlock bottom on the fob it finally unlocked. The red led flashes when any three of the buttons are pressed so dont think its a battery issue however ive just replaced the battery as a first attempt to resolve this issue. If its not the battery how difficult is it to get another key? I guess it
  9. Afraid not cant locate the second key which has the fob buttons.
  10. As per the title the key fob on my 2008 2.0 D4D Avensis will lock the car but wont unlock it. With over 205K miles it has got alot of use.... never replaced the battery in all this time so i will replace it first. Could it be something else other than the fob battery? I opened it manually with the key alarm going off for 10 - 15 mins disconnected the (+ lead) on the battery a few times and kept pressing unlock eventually it kicked in.
  11. Cheers Konrad for you help yet again..... that will help me narrow down a replacement bumper alot quicker.... one i had my eye on is the wrong colour :(
  12. Hi All, I'm looking to replace the rear bumper on my 2008 2.0 D4D TR avensis Saloon.... i've found a 2007 (facelift model) with an unmarked bumper.... however its a hatchback.... anyone know if the hatchback & saloon bumpers are the same? Thanks
  13. So i replaced the rear brake discs at the weekend.... was very straight forward thanks to the the workshop submission thread. On inspection they looked to be in a very poor state see the images below.... brake pads were not wearing even on the rear passenger side.... and the inside of the disc appears to be badly worn..... once i fitted the new discs and pads i took if for a test drive to find no noise coming from the rear wheels... i had suspected it was a rear bearing but seems it was due to the poor state of the discs. Thanks for all the help lads.
  14. cheers for the info Konrad.... i get what your saying i too was surprised to see the lip wore down on the disc after all they have 195K miles on them...... ill strip it down at the weekend and see whats going on. Thanks again
