    2007 Corrolla SR 1.6
  1. Yeah I think most people on here are aware of the Fensport 'rolla, but you aren't going to be able to do many mods on a 1.6! Still following this thread with a bit of interest however, maybe you could give me some new ideas for my 1.6. ;)
  2. Oi, there's an Xscape here in Glasgow and you lot got me excited there. :P
  3. Like I said above, my 1.6 is noticeably quicker than my mates 1.4. That car looks tidy, and as far as what too look out for is concerned these cars a pretty bullet proof. Make sure it has FSH, if it has been regularly serviced then the 1.6s will run happily into 6 figure mileage without an issue. Sometimes they can have a squeaky clutch, but if you test drive it and there is no noticeable effect on the gearchange then it is just an annoyance rather than a mechanical issue so nothing really to worry about.
  4. Recently a squeal/squeak has developed on what sounds like my drivers side front suspension, Its very audible with the window open driving accross speed bumps or broken tarmac, but recently passed a health check with Mr T. Any ideas what it could be? Only done 27000 miles but do cross speedbumps quite often going in and out my street. Possibly bushes? Thanks.
  5. Well it depends on your own financial situation. Go with whatever will put you in the least amount of debt and the most manageable situation financially in accordance with your monthly budget/wage packet. Don't overstep what you can afford, and put yourself in a difficult position to get out of.
  6. I bought mine with part exchange and cash. Insurance was steep at first but im down to 700 odd a year now. What is it you need help with? I doubt many people will be able to help you find a lower insurance quote if that's what you want, generally the comparison websites do a good job of giving you a base figure for what to expect. The only other thing I can suggest is try some websites that don't use comparison websites such as Adrian Flux or Direct Line.
  7. I've never driven a 1.4, but my mate has one. I seem to always have the legs on him.

    It can't be bought new as far as I'm aware. It's a case of waiting for one to pop up.
  9. As Oldcodger said, if you had anything serious like Head Gasket issues then you would be facing large amounts of mayonaise aswell as a very obvious discolourations of the oil under the cap and fluctuations in temperature. I do alot of motorway journeys, and often enjoy a good B road blast on my commute to university and back twice a week, and especially after the winter months where I couldn't do this I noticed how free and smooth the car felt after a good blast. Everything lossens up after a good blast and the engine runs a lot easier. Sometimes it is neccessary to give your car a little thrash to maintain it's good health I feel :). Obviously don't over do it and this is no proffesional advice, and only do it when warmed up, but the winter months can be hard on the lubrication and liquid components, getting them properly warmed up and moving does help.
  10. Theres a little plastic clip that you can see on the inside when you take the bulb out, looks like a little wedge. Press it in at one side and that side of the cover should pop out. You just have to work it free from there.
  11. On your bootlid on the inside is two little panels, pop these off with a screwdriver. You will see theres another metal panel on the left needing removed with two screws and on the right you can see where the wires lead to the bulb. This whole unit will twist to the left and then slide out giving you access to the bulb.
  12. Hi, Yes it been done a few times - heres one, probably more if you use the Search http://www.toyotaown...20%20dials&st=0 Thanks! I did use the search but never saw that one! Thanks! There still isn't a how to however :(
  13. Sam, mine revs to about 2000 on start up before slowly dropping as it warms up, especially if im running the heaters or air conditioning. It's normal. Stop worrying! :P
  14. I haven't seen this mentioned on here by anyone before, but I was looking at doing this with white strip LEDs but I have no idea what the best way to do it in a corolla! I wan't them to come on with the headlights, can anyone give me a wee how too? I'd also like to install a switch that lets me turn them off while I'm driving :)
  15. I think i've seen that about as well, theres a pic of it on c&cs website.
