  1. Hi Toebeans...encountered that issue myself...rather than trying to unscrew it...get a thin blade flat screwdriver...pref those micro blade ones n pry the srew up first...sometimes they just pop out matey
  2. Sorry to read the sad news, but thats def a body shop job since the wing looks pretty much pushed in sadly, the smart guys are smart but not that smart, it’ll involve a full wing respray, the thing with red is colour match and then that shiny look due to the laquer process which makes it stand out more, which then involves blowing it into the front door and possibly the corner of the bumper too. Im talking from my own experience but i wish you the best of luck, im yet to see a body repair that doesnt stand out. Do you think a replacement wing might be the better option and cheaper one too?
  3. I didnt realise it was so bright, feel so bad now, glad i changed the bulb on mot day and then fixed the issue in less than 24hrs, id hate to annoy more drivers, lesson learnt. However, i cant say that ive ever been blinded or annoyed by rear fogs on vehicles infront of me, havent really noticed if im honest, from now i will probably notice things more lol
  4. Interesting reading. Im up to date with my bulbs now lol
  5. Makes perfect sense. Thank you I think i was so pleased that my baby passed its mot...id rather visit the dentist lol...followed by my very 1st Advisory ever...i panicked...bort the bulb n off i went. Had that gentleman have never stopped me the other night i probably would never have known any better!! Bless him. I do wonder how bright it could have been for him because he seemed upset and dazzled rubbing his eyes in gesture n all sorts!
  6. I have absolutely no idea about these bulbs. I def put it in correctly as in it turned like a bulb does. Im sure these arent off set so as to speak...i.e the 2 prong things are inline. Well now i know..fit..n then test...lesson learnt
  7. Spot on! Thank you so so so much...i didnt know that it even made a difference which way around you insert the bulb! All working fine now. Love you guys n this club
  8. Guys i need help...please. A vehicle stopped me tonight complaining that my rear left light was blinding him! He assumed that i had my fog light on! I replied no that i did not have it on. He replief...you best get it sorted matey. My car passed its mot on Thursday this week. Only advisory was my reverse bulb light was out! Changed that over as soon as i got home. All seemed fine. I admit upgrading my rear light clusters not so long ago to the newer more clear n black Aygo version...09+ i think. What could be causing this issue guys...with the left side being brighter...n this is regardless whether i have my side lights on or full beam. I anxiously await replies guys. Thank you. Sammy
  9. Hi there For the hell of me i cant remember...im almost certain it was Ebay... Ill have a look at my account later...see if i can find them... They look much smarter than the originals in my opinion. Had an mot yesterday and he didnt comment...im almost certain theyre road legal too...car passed tho...hooray...1 advisory...reverse light inoperative...damn...cant believe i missed that...came home...changed bulb over...job done!
  10. I replaced mine with some aftermarket ones...road legal but tinted black...look much better and led... Replaced them like you since i broke both sides trying to remove them...hard work. Sadly the bulbs on the original arent changeable...the whole unit has to be replaced...i was shocked to discover that at the time!
  11. Okayyy then...job done...woo hoo! Had the screen replaced, looks similar to the original with the black boarders etc, can tell its not as thick as an original, but hey it looks good, shiney clean and new, im happy. And the gentleman agreed to attempt to refit my dab aerial, not bad, it didnt break, so a win win. Fingers crossed i dont crack this one!
  12. Cheers guys, ill ask him, the aerial is one of these... https://www.halfords.com/technology/car-audio/stereo-fitting-accessories/autoleads-dab-film-antenna-smb-dab-aa1?_br_psugg_q=dab+aerial Not sure if double sided would work, more important if it would actuallypeel away even once heated with a hair dryer as the element if i call it that looks pretty fragile. Hey ho ill just buy a new one, the windscreen comes first i guess. wonder how he’ll be sticking my centre view mirror on...or do i do that myself too?
  13. Update, Went from a 4cm crack to all the way across this morning...scary stuff watching that happen in live 4k action lol. Obviously the frozen screen followed by my teenager switching on the heaters etc. Anyhoo, bit the bullet, rang my insurance peeps, made payment, Autoglass coming out tomm at some point, oh and they promised that the glass will be an exact of the original etc, even went on to say that the Aygo screen is manufactured by Toyota...nerve of the sales woman because that has to be a blatant lie ! Fingers crossed all goes well, ill have to lose my dab aerial fixed to this old windscreen because they arent easy to peel off sadly!!! Ill be glad when its over and fingers crossed its a clear screen with no distortions etc.
  14. Hi All Sadly i got hit by a nasty stone chip on the way back from Coventry night before last, hit my passenger side...very close to the edge of the screen pillar side...turned into a 4cm approx crack...rang Autoglass as per instruction by my insurance peeps...cannot repair if close to the edge... So what are options guys? Thought of a replacement kills me as i wouldnt want to lose the black border going around the screen...i like that as it matches all the other glass. Or should i go dealership? Or 2nd hand route? Has anyone on here had their Aygo mk1 or mk2s screens replaced my i ask?
