    Rear light swap

    Thank you. I am onto my next project. 1. I carry some pretty heavy loads in my AYGO. It seems to sit pretty lowish, i can feel it a tat. Doing the bounce test i see no second bouncing. And the shock absorbers show no signs of leakage. I’d like that strong high stance look. I’m thinking whether i should replace all 4 springs? 2. I am still having a fuel consumption issue even after replacing my cat and both sensors. Hit 200 miles on a full tank last week. My heart tells me its either the fuel filter or the tte backbox causing an issue. Its a guessing game. Replacing the back box is easy but expensive as it’d need to be custom made being the centre type, but the fuel filter, is this an easy job? Or could it be a fuel pump issue? Hmmm

    Rear light swap

    Good Evening fellow forumers, Im glad to say...yay...all went well with my rear light transplant this morning, it was as planemo said...a straight swap...perfect fit and look much much better...i have a much smarter rear end now lol. Thank you guys for all your input.

    Rear light swap

    Planemo, your Aygo is a beauty, lost for words. Hey my replacement updated lights arrived today, cant wait to fit them, hopefully this week weather permitting, im still worried about them causing any water leaks, i have no leak issues currently, the seals on the replacement look okay but one corner does look a bit manky, wondering i should silicone them on incase???

    Rear light swap

    You’re the best planemo...been waiting for a positive response...thank you. I cant wait for them to arrive and get them fitted. I do worry a little about the replacements causing any water leaks but ill check the seals on them first. Otherwise i recon theyll look better than the current ones i have, i like the chrome rings on the newer ones with the black inserts, matches the headlamps better in my opinion.

    Rear light swap

    Cheers guys Ive ordered a pair, and shall update once fitted, if they fit that is lol, going via some pics they look the same size, connectors appear identical, and the layout appears spot on. Fingers crossed.

    Rear light swap

    Cheers Eygo Rang some local breakers today...no luck sadly. However, i took a walky passed a 12 plate Aygo and had a peep and they look the same size, im just unsure if the connector and lugs at the rear differ, cant seem to find a pic on google either, hmmm, should i chance 100£ and order them anyway.

    Rear light swap

    Hi All A quick one, i’m a little curious about this one. I have an 08 3 door Aygo. I have a slight crack on my drivers side rear lamp. So ive been thinking... Could i replace them with lamps off the newer model...say a 14 plate...i like the look of them Are they the exact same size and fit though with the same connector etc? Id really appreciate your help on this one. Thanks guys

    Musty Smell in cabin

    P.s there are no water leaks present anywhere incase somebody suggests that as a possibility.

    Musty Smell in cabin

    Hi Guys Hopefully unlinked to my other thread re.a dead battery encountered. We’ve noticed what i can only describe as a weird musty stale smell in the cabin, its so strange how it just appeared in the last couple of weeks id say, we have leather seats which are cleaned regular along with the rubber mats and carpets etc, but this smell persists. Thought it might be the pollen filter but that was replaced very recent at a full service earlier this month. We have no idea where its coming from. Currently have 4 air fresheners placed for now lol.

    Woke up to a dead battery

    Update. we’ve installed the re-charged battery carried out by toyota this afternoon, see how that goes, but have purchased a brand new one from then which we shall store in the boot for now on standby if required. we intend to measure the voltage on the battery tomorrow and at the alternator, might to watch a few youtube vids to learn how to first lol

    Woke up to a dead battery

    Cheers guys, We cant think as to what it could be as to why it drained down, because i agree with Toyota batteries are normally pretty reliable. We use the vehicle for long distance these days which is about 4-5 times a month, with my Aygo as the local run around. We also had a dashcam fitted about a month back, powered via a direct connection from cig fuse, which i assume powers up on ingnition rather than constant. Otherwise interior lights etc are always off. Im now paranoid lol, hmmm, just thought we have an mp3 player plugged, connected to the inside of the handrest box, could that be left on, but thats too small no.

    Woke up to a dead battery

    Hi We woke up to a dead battery day before yesterday, nothing happened on start up other than some unusual noises from the under the bonnet and numerous flashing lights on the dash... PANIC ATTACK!!! lol Called out my breakdown company who we joined through club toyota...AA in other words...confirmed it was the battery...attempted to charge the battery...confirmed the battery wouldnt flactuate whilst charging on his meter...i.e the battery was knackered and recommended we buy an AA battery with a 5 yr guarantee. Anyhoo, rang my toyota dealer whom we purchased it from since it still has 4 months warranty remaining on the battery. They asked us to bring it in, they charged it for 24hrs, called us this morning to confirm that its fine and fully charged. Our concern is...do we replace it with a new one incase it happens again especially with the winter weather on its way soon? Or risk using the old battery that we have had for coming up to 3 years and see how it goes? Cheers guys

    Longer pedals

    Hi guys just my 5 cents here but i dont think one can adjust the seats on a 2010 model can they? i have a 2008 and the seats go forward n back only. otherwise i definitely agree with parts king and get it done properly by a mobility specialist which im almost certain they can do. best of luck.

    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.
