  1. Hi I have just changed spark plugs on the Yaris and made a video to help anyone else that hasn't done it before! Hope this helps someone!
  2. don't worry - it has been fine driving about in and I am getting the thread drilled out and a new bolt put in today... :/
  3. I was changing the spark plugs on a Yaris today and you have to unscrew a bolt before you can take out the leads to get to the spark plug. But one of the screws snapped off so half of the end of the screw is stuck in the rocker cover - is this an issue? In the past I have worked on cars where the HT leads just kind of suction onto the rocker cover keeping themselves in place without needing to be screwed down. I just don't want the ignition lead to jump out over a bumpy road and stop sparking that cylinder..! Please help - what should I do?
  4. What is the fitting kit? - where can you get them and how much?
  5. I have been looking and searching google and can't seem to find many places that sell kits such as the TRD lip kit for a start! Where can I get / see a good selection of kits please? Hopefully there will be a few good websites I can start with? Thanks :)
  6. Hi I have been driving a family members Yaris and when going through the rev range I hear a whistling noise as soon as I get to about 4,750 RPM and over. It didn't use to do it... It is a 2002 / 5 Door / 1 Litre. What could the cause be?

  8. does anyone know or is there a how to of how to replace bumper and headlights please?
  9. There must be someone that knows or a site that explains how to? Otherwise I will have to do it by eye step by step
  10. Hi as the title and description says, i have bought a new headlamp and upper bumper for a 2002 yaris and need to know how to replace these parts! Thanks!
  11. ok thanks! so are these parts the right ones that i need? would it be better to buy a bumper already primed for an extra £2 or would the bodyshop not charge anymore to prime it?? http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320612998088&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320612978314&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT
  12. So I've had a ding and need a new drivers headlight unit and upper front bumper. I understand the bumper on this version yaris comes in 2 parts - upper and lower... (which is why i've stated upper/top) I'm looking for cheap replacements for these parts and Toyota have quoted me £71.70 for the headlamp and £57.71 for the top half of the front bumper (primered) all prices exclude V.A.T. and I would have to get the bumper sprayed through my own arrangements. Obviously this is the most expensive way of doing things. So.... I've seen the headlamps on eBay for £35 each which seems a better option and top half bumpers about £35 primered. Then I will need to get this sprayed and all fitted. Is this the cheapest option I have? Other questions I have are: 1. I'm guessing I'm looking for 1999-2003 parts, can any of these parts be 'facelifted' at all to better parts so I have a wider search + hopefully be able to get anything even cheaper? Such as can I get the 2003 - 2005 bumper? Or will it not fit at all or will the lights then not fit in etc...? 2. Does anybody have these parts for sale at all?? The car in question: 2002 (02 plate) Yaris VVTi 0998cc Colour Collect 5 Door Like this but 5 door: Thanks!!!
  13. cheers rory, what did you use to pierce the hole? as in does it matter if theres a tiny gap will water leak through?? and did you make the hole just anywhere in the grommet or where there are already small bung looking things that stick out a bit? - they look like theyre supposed to be for holes but dont seem to come out?
  14. Hi thanks for the guide, the first problem is the hole to the back of the glovebox. theres just a load of plastic in the way after I took out the glovebox? And what hole do I use from the engine firewall? the 'upside down teardrop' shaped one? And what is the best way to turn it into a hole if it is?? Here are a couple of pics ive taken so you can see clearer: Plastic jungle with no visible hole?? Please help!
  15. I've recently been driving my sisters Yaris and the brakes are pretty poor and nearly dead. Firstly where is the cheapest place to get original front discs and pads? Toyota want £250 to do the job including parts (which seems stupidly expensive) but I might aswell do it myself and save some cash. Secondly how much more will I be paying to upgrade as I would rather my sister be driving a safer car! I have seen EBC pads on www.ebcbrakesdirect.com Original Quality - £17.94 Green Stuff - £55.09 Is this price for ALL four? EBC discs have 2 different sizes 235mm £28.74 each and 255mm £33.34 each - how do i know which one i need without taking the wheels off!? They also do grooved 255mm for double the price... is this really worth it? Thanks!
  16. Hi, Its been a while since ive used this forum but suddenly I can only see one post at a time in a thread!! How can i see a whole thread at once again!? Its annoying trying to read seperate posts! lol Thanks!
  17. Can a supercharger from a corolla 2002+ be fitted to the celica 190. they both use the vvtli engine so i was wondering if its straight bolt on? Also i heard toyota actually sell supercharger kits for most new cars... is this true? If so does the celica 190 + Gen3 MR2 have one available and what difference does it make? :)
  18. im really interested in buying a 190 but the toyota garage cant even be bothered to take me out in one! might be because im young (only 19) but the guys at the honda garage were much nicer! shame really cos its a bit off-putting when you know the people servicing your car arent really that friendly... anyway thought id be cheeky and ask if anyone in the portsmouth-(chichester)-worthing kinda area with a 190 would be nice enough to let me passenger for a little spin so i've got a better idea of what theyre really like??? thanks. nick! :P
  19. ah ok - no specific ones anymore then? ive registered with celica-club.co.uk but the whole forum seems to be empty?
  20. Just wondering if there was a specific celica gen 7 forum made for UK owners? thanks. nick.
