    What do you think?

    Hi Its a good looking spoiler, however the over hang is a bit much for my taste, id go the genuine factory version if it were me, which we happen to have a brand new in storage which we never got around to fitting from back in the day, its unboxed as the box got tatty over the years, still have the fitting i think, however we’re based in leicestershire, and a spoiler is pretty big to parcel up.

    Brake judder

    Brake judder

    Fuether on from this will be inspecting braking system for run out re.the discs...callipers...sliders etc! Which i wish i didnt have to strip down again lol.

    Brake judder

    Update... Spoke to a mechanical friend ths afternoon...who advised me to rotate the front wheels to the rear...and check for judder again at 70mph as when i noticed it. This makes sense and should rule out issues with balancing etc. Fingers crossed i dont need to replace any wheels for whoever the original owners were, somebody didnt know how to park thats for sure!

    Brake judder

    Cheers Alan333, yes its definitely from the front, i doubt warped discs too, theyre Pagid branded and look pretty solid, and theyre still pretty shiny I think ill get rule the tyres and and wheels out first as youve suggested at some point this week, maybe get the balancing checked out too. I drove it this morning, 5 miler trip, no judder at all, but thats at 30mph. Maybe the discs are slightly loose, or maybe over tight, im at a loss with my assumptions at the mo, maybe its a seized slider pins, faulty callipers, debris some where, who knows!

    Brake judder

    Hi Guys I did a 300 miler trip today and for the 1st time in my life im experiencing brake judder...worse when braking from 70mph...it comes right through the steering column whereby i can see my steering my wheel SHAKE! And my partner could feel it in the passenger footwell too. I have no idea where to start looking, i could google but id rather ask you guys first. The front discs and pads were replaced by myself not so long ago, still look new, pagid brand from my local Halfords. Other than a service and recent cat and lamda sensor change i cannot think of any other mechanical work we’ve done to her, and she has been fine up until today. Please help. Thank you. Sammy

    Rear Bumper Reflectors

    Cheers Frosty, The original reflectors simply reflect when light shines upon them, however these aftermarkets actually light up with led’s once brakes are pressed, hence the 3 wires coming out of them that we need to figure where to tap them into. re.mot pass...we’re unsure, its like having 2 extra brake lights, hmmm, could it upset the mot tester maybe?

    Rear Bumper Reflectors

    Hi and Good Morning All, My other half has ordered and received some new rear bumper reflectors that light up when you brake, he liked the look of them. Our questions are, are the original ones easy to remove? And the replacements have 3 wires, is there a way to route them into the area we’d need to be in to wire them up? And finally does anyone know the colour of wire for positive and negative by any chance either side when it comes to braking??? Cheers guys

    Centre Armrest 65 Plate

    Its a doddle matey, infact there are some vids on installation via Youtube. Its a case of assembling the new arm rest itself...dead simple... and then holding it in place inside the vehicle, marking 4 holes, small drill pilot holes i made, and then screw it in...very easy. All in all 10-15 mins

    We PASSED the MOT

    Snap Oldcodger...it was at a local council station...we’ve been going there for over 12 years!!! Maybe more, you cant beat them, always helpful and informative. So good to hear from you matey, gosh, you still have the old Rolla! Good memories.

    We PASSED the MOT

    Yay...my other half lost some sleep last night in preperation for his 1st mot via an independant mot station since ownership...it was mot’d and serviced via the dealership for the last two years due to the warranty that he bought, and decided against it this year as he’s uncertain if he wants to keep his vehicle come insurance renewal next year. Its more nail biting than going to the dentist in my opinion. Lol. At the end of the test, in the testers words...thats a fancy one innit, he loved the car, admittedly we keep our vehicles tip top and very shiny. I questioned him on Diesel ownership. He recons we’ll be okay with it for another 10 years plus, if he owned it he’d hold on to it for life, he must’ve really liked it lol. It is a luxury motor yet its just an Avensis with leathers and a motorsport body kit. The reason for my post, i believe, if you maintain your motor regardless of cost, which includes regular services and inspections, aswell as regular washing and waxing, passing mot’s under the new rules should be a doddle...in theory maybe lol.

    Centre Armrest 65 Plate

    Hi there, I recommend the ARMSTER armrest, if you have time to do a quick google search, i only ever buy genuine manufacture pars, and this brand comes very close if not better, i bought one for my 2008 Aygo and its a dream to have, honestly words cannot describe, i bought it it via Micks Garage online, using an online discount code via google im sure i paid 45.00 or there abouts. Im almost certain that they do one for your year, i could be mistaken. Good luck.

    Any Steering Column experts out there?

    Ahh cheers StefanD, i shall look i to those areas at the weekend, and hopefully...fingers crossed...give things a good lubing and solve the issue, otherwise she drives like a dream especially post cat and 2 lambda sensor changes...other than this steering issue and its usually rattles..she’s perfect!

    Any Steering Column experts out there?

    Hi all Slight issue with an annoying sound coming from steering column. Always present when turning steering wheel from slight to full turns, and whether at standstill or moving, sounds like something needs lubricating ir greasing, its a dull sound, kinda sound that hurts your teeth and gives you a headache, weather conditions dont improve it. Its def not related to anything else like suspension etc, just the steering column or shaft thats the issue. Cheers
