  1. Past hour
  2. I can recommend someone, but you're looking at 50 miles each way, about 70 minutes drive away from you up the A38.
  3. Pre Winter Checks

    It's not uncommon on the Gen 7 for the hinges to break. I've seen quite a few advertised with the flap no longer flush. Another thing worth doing before the short days and long nights, is cleaning all interior glass.
  4. Today
  5. Pre Winter Checks

    Whats with greasing the fuel flap? Iv never done that and not had issues. But again prevention is better than cure. Does it sieze up?
  6. Dont bother with main dealer for mot. Find a council run place that doesnt do any work on cars and just mot. For servicing find a local club member who could help you out with oil changes and filters etc.
  7. Yesterday

  9. Tool kit

    Dont have room to carry tools in Blu.. he's constantly packed to the hilt with a gazebo, flag, flag pole and stand, 2 banners, poles and 4 chairs... He's 24 years old, and (touch wood) never left me stranded (except in 2011 when the immobiliser was playing up) In the Bug, I carry spare bulbs, mini compressor, tyre pressure checker, power pack, hi vis, screen wash etc... (and more in winter)... This weekend came in handy, as a reversing bulb blew and had a flat tyre.. fixed whilst waiting in car park

  14. Tool kit

    im same guys even though the toyotas are pretty reliable its still a 15 year old car and i carry a tool bag with ecu reader in the kit , small air compressor , jump leads , oil , coolant plus my car cleaning kit .. but also i made the bottom compartments a bit noise proof and so things dont roll around under neath ..
  15. Tool kit

    I had my "situation" in my old Toyota MR2 - although they are reliable cars its important to remember - just how many bits of our cars are now aftermarket or old and have 150k+ miles on them? The problem I faced in my incident was a massive pothole which literally bent a droplink- which made the back end sit all twisted and being a rear scary-drive MR2 I had to fix - because it was unsafe. All I wanted to do was just disconnect the droplink and ziptie it up out the way - was extremely difficult to do at 1am in the pouring rain with essentially no tools. Lesson learned - I now carry tools.
  16. Tool kit

    Why do you need to carry tools in a Toyota? Apart from things needed to change a wheel in the event of a puncture..torch, first aid kit, and waterproof jacket only.
  17. Tool kit

    mines very basic, i carry fluids like deionized water and coolant and oil (not tools but necessities) , a emergency tyre repair kit, cable ties, bluetooth fault reader and thats it.
  18. Tool kit

    jump leads, cheap 3/8th socket set with everything up to 19mm, cheap spanner set with 8 to 19mm, phillips and flat screwdrivers, pliers, Bluetooth code reader, zip ties, 2 spare coil packs, 1 of each "important" spare bulb, some fuses, WD40 type spray, jack, wheel nut brace, the alloy nut key adapters, 1 spare spark plug in a box, and a spare serpentine belt. It all fits inside the spare wheel so doesn't take any extra room. Im good to go. Of note, no self-respecting Toyota drivers goes anywhere without some zip ties. Ive said this before - some may think this excessive. BUT - once you have been in a "stuck at the side of the road in rural wales at 1am in the pouring rain shouting MY KINGDOM FOR A 14mm SPANNER" situation you never want an experience that again to the best of your ability.
  19. Hello all, Does anyone know a decent garage or mechanic that knows their way around a Celica TSport please? I live in Penkridge which sits in the centre of Cannock, Stafford and Wolverhampton near junction 13 of the M6. Bearing in mind it has been going to a Toyota dealership nearby for service/mot since I have owned the car you would think it might pass an MOT when it has just been serviced. Yet it seems to fail on something that has been missed on the annual service every time. Add to that they have tried to charge me twice for a new battery in 6 months as the first one fitted failed, luckily I had the original invoice in my pocket that day to prove it had only been on the car for 6 months. They also tried charging me for fitting new wiper blades when I had fitted new Bosh ones all round a week before it went in for service/mot. The Bosh ones were still on and had not been changed so apparently this was a mistake and then taken off the bill. Hence someone good for service and MOT in my area would be much appreciated, thanks...
