    Gearbox Swap

    hi,i am bedding in the cluth for a couple of weeks,if still the same the garage that fitted the clutch will hopefuly fit a new one. i would say that the gear selection is slighty better than it was, the car has now developed a new fault. when starting it today the radio came on at full volume, the clock display goes dim then bright. when starting this afternoon all was ok. i hope no more faults develop,its the 1st toyota we have owned and despite the problems we are very pleased with it.

    Gearbox Swap

    hi,push clutch pedal to floor,tried to select all gears with car stationary. difficult to select all gears. when selecting reverse car feels as though it moves a fraction. when lifting the clutch pedal clutch bites just off the carpet. as you say poss clutch not clearing. the engine i had fitted was from a 1997/98 car with 58,000 miles on the clock on cars in the past that i have come across with worn thrust washers the engine usually tries to stall. many thanks

    Seat Swap

    hi,thanks for your reply,i have found a set of standard seats in top condition and they seem firmer than mine. i think mine have just gone soft with use. the previous owner was somewhat of a large lady so was her hubby. they may have squashed the foam. many thanks
