    ‘Check VSC System’, Check Parking Brake System’

    Hi there, I am so glad to read that your vehicle is in good health now. I’d like to know more about what a terraclean is...never heard of it? Can one do this if they do not have any current problems? My other halfs always stressing about his dpf will eventually give him issues? P.s...this garage is Birmingham...do they issue a reciept after the works completed and how long does it take to carry out?

    Glow Plug Service Replacement Schedule

    Cheers Byzii... I didnt know that...thank you for an education lesson in glow plugs...its our first diesel...hence my curiosity all of a sudden! p.s How would you know if one was faulty for example...does the engine light show up?

    Glow Plug Service Replacement Schedule

    Guys I'd like to ask...glow plugs...do they ever need replacing as part of a service schedule and if so at what mileage? Like my Aygo...i know that i dont need to...but because sparks are so cheap i replace them yearly with my diy servicing. Whereas glow plugs are a lot dearer...hence the question. Cheers guys

    P.s Spent my day today serving my Aygo...oil..oil filter...sparks...air filter...n the cabin filter too...topped up washer fluid...job done...all in 1 hour...n a bit lol. All genuine Toyota bits from the dealers...i did think of going Bosch parts via Euro carparts as we both did with the back box...but my other half steered me away...dont think he likes the sound of my new klarius lol...your words...raspy...i like it

    Xmas Eve Work on the Aygo

    Excellent work there matey...love your likkle Aygo...especially the blue on grey bumpers...sets it off sporty...i recon a little roof spoiler would complete it nicely...in my opinion that is...n maybe some wind deflectors? I love the fact that these Aygo's can be customised so easily to reflect the owners individual tastes.

    Not such a happy new year start

    So sorry to hear of your sad news... If it were me...id contact dealer in writing...allow them 7 days to respond...then contact consumer bureau...after which id definitely contact my card issuer... Might all take a little time but atleast you'd be getting closer to some help!

    New Year - New Bumper Scuff

    Hi All, Forgive my moans as the new year begins... We woke up this morning to a scuffed rear bumper...pleasure of parking on road side...days are gone when people were honest enough to leave their details hey! Anyhoo...tried the wd40 trick first...not bad...definitely helps with removing or improving atleast paint from the other parties vehicle...leaves a nice shine too guys...however this scuff left numerous scratches through the layers...sooo...we wet sanded it down...p2000 with soapy water...its a process...wet sand...polish using buffer machine with g3 and g10 compounds depending...and then wet sand again if unhappy with result...and so forth...HOWEVER be wary...one can only wet sand the same patch so many times before one hits the actual paint base! Will attach some pics guys...before n afters.

    Xmas Eve Work on the Aygo

    Good work guys...love reading posts from people with a real passion for d.i.y fixes! My next project over the hols are...fit some rear park sensors...have a brand new set of genuine mazda ones in storage for years...apparently universal...n before anyone asks...i like having rear sensors...dont think its a womans thing lol. Need to stick my business logo decals on the bodywork. And a full service. Oh and i purchased a new Sony headunit off Amazon recent...variable colour...didnt need it as i installed a new jvc headunit upon purchasing my Aygo but it was too cheap a deal to miss lol.

    Was it a Klarius back box that you purchased? Does it sound like a sports exhaust may i ask? Sorry to hear the sad news but glad you’ve got her fixed up!

    Broken location glove box damper on lower dashboard - fixed I hope.

    Thats ridiculous, how Toyota have moulded this part into the dash! I shall be more careful with ours now. The only time we remove it is to change the pollen filter. I cant see it breaking whilst opening and closing the glove box as per normal use. If it does ever break, i would have thought one could live without this damper...no? Or make some sort of a diy bracket from plastic if it does drop without the damper just to keep the box up. Hope someone finds a fix to what is a small but highly annoying issue

    Rear Cigarette port Extension

    Quick update.. Other half decided not to pursue all the avenues discussed in the end...couldnt find the heart to drill in places even the eye cant see...so its one of those whereby we’ll open the arm rest and pass the kids the charger lol.

    Glove box damper? is that that thing to the left that holds the glovebox up when opened? Looks like a plastic shocker? cant you replace it with a new one or used part?
