  1. Not at all, everyone's different, I like that you brought it up, and it proves to me...that im not the ONLY CRAZY ONE lol! These Aygo's are too cute but have their issues, bit like mwah! All the best!
  2. I like that...old doesn't necessarily mean broken! I just thought 12 years plus...and its still on the road! I think its the oldest car we've ever had. As another saying goes...old is gold!
  3. Hi All, Considering that my 2008 Aygo is almost 13 years old! I was wondering while I still have her, and i know the motto is if its not broke dont fix, but are there any parts that may need attention by now, e.g, suspension bushes, springs, drop links, cv's, tie rod ends, brake hoses etc etc. Just a thought really
  4. Sorry to hear of your troubles. It might help if you could upload a video or sound clip maybe?
  5. I agree with all the above. Admittedly the only thing that gets on my nerves is how dusty it gets. I often brush mine out weekly! I know
  6. Cheers How much did you pay for the full set? BTW mines is a 3 door? Does it matter?
  7. Beautiful. Love that look. Are these really a straight forward swap? No modifications required at all? Wow.
  8. Hi. We had, have, the same issue in the same area only ours is a saloon. It began at a car wash. Water just started pouring in. The marks didn't stain as we soaped those pillar trims and dried them with a hair dryer upon returning home. It happened a couple times after that incident when it rained really heavy. We just assumed the initial cause was the guy pressure washed a little to hard and damaged a seal maybe. After that it was home hand washes for awhile. However we've been back to those car wash places a few times since and not a drop inside. Strange. I have no idea what
  9. Hi, we had a very similar issue recently bar the squeak sound...a new cam and crank sensor fixed her. In your case its a strange one with that squeal. I know how it feels to be in this frustrating situation. I pray it fixes itself soon. Sammy
  10. Definitely not like that stuff. Who would even allow terminals to get to that state!
  11. Hmm cracked battery. Bought it from euro car parts. Interesting how I happen to be outside them!!!
  12. Cheers guys. So its corrosion. I cant see corrosion anywhere under my bonnet to that white deposit effect. My terminals have been cleaned and greased fairly recent. No idea where its come from. I'll try wiping it off anyway. No biggy then !
  13. Hi Guys, Noticed this white residue on my battery mat over the weekend, any ideas what it could be? Its a brand new battery fitted just a few months ago. Could it be frost bite maybe?
  14. Hi Any recommendations on BRAND when it comes to rear springs guys? Local motor factors carry kyb or suplex!
  15. Exactly what I needed! I just bought some silicone spray recently, I assume this might be a messy option, or is it white grease im thinking of! I think ill try the vaseline option tomorrow morning. See how that goes down. Both my drivers and passenger seals have tears in them in places...and for that reason I haven't replaced them! Too darn expensive!!
  16. Morning All, Has anulybody else woken up to frozen doors on their Aygo's? For me its bothe driver and passenger. If I pull any harder the handles will surely snap off! I for one on my street cleaned off all the snow on my car last night, paying especial attention to around the doors and wiper mechanisms for this particular reason, but they still froze shut. Any prevention methods guys? Drive safe all! Sammy
  17. True say, I respect your opinion, I'm confused, even if I upgrade, I think ill be keeping my aygo on the drive to one side, maybe keep her as my emergency back up in life. She's to cute to let go. But yes any recommendations on brand of springs would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
  18. Hi All, I feel that my 2008 Aygo has been sitting a bit low-er recently! I dont really like a soft rear end! Worse when I have 2 occupants seated in the rear. I've already put in 2 rear shock absorbers not so long ago, actually may have been a year by now, do you think 2 new rear springs may help? Basically I'd like her to sit higher up, and stiff so I can go over bumps and my exhaust won't touch the humps as it does now! Any ideas?
  19. Afternoon All, Just to update, mission completed yesterday re maf sensor clean out, was a bit tricky removing the sensor, very tight indeed, had to feel for the sensor itself and the two bolts holding it in place, removing the top air box helped. Upon inspection it looked in a terrible state, found what looked like an oily residue, how does that happen exactly? Anyway gave it a good clean using my electrical contact clean spray, air dried and put back in! Results, definitely a noticeable improvement im glad to say, however whether it will improve mpg, time will tell!
  20. Nice 1 old codger. I'll let it freeze over night and then test your idea! See how that works! On a serious note...im a day in to driving more...smoothly shall we say
  21. I'm beginning to think I AM THE PROBLEM! Still I'm gona try cleaning my maf and calculating my mpg as I go along
  22. Now here is an old friend that I haven't heard from in gosh...how long? Good to hear from you Oldcodger! It almost feels like we are family! That old corolla SR of mine was a beauty. I seem to go for good looking models but cost me in mpg's! The old days hey. Cant believe you still have your corolla. Proud of you. You've done well my friend. If circumstances doesn't make me change my car its boredom. I'm beginning to believe that it is my right foot you know! The thing with my Aygo anyway is within what feels like milliseconds...I can hit 50 to 60 mph in no time...I alway
  23. Cheers for the video. Looks easy enough although I'd like to avoid removing the throttle housing! I'm sure i can get in there without
  24. Cheers ill try this but using the electrical cleaner to be safe. But please tell me...do I just remove the maf sensor...connected to the air filter box I assume...and spray it all down?
