    Where to get 12V?

    Im not sure which wires connected to the lighter, the lighter was not wired up when I got the car
  3. I'm about to upgrade my iPhone 7 and I haven't decided between the iPhone 8 and the iPhone XR (or maybe the iPhone XS). I just want to make sure whichever one I get will work OK with my wireless charging and connect OK with the entertainment and everything else. Thanks.

    Hiro's AE102

    Oh, and I'm now rolling on 15" TOM's AE111 wheels, came up at a bargain price and I couldn't resist a piece of JDM dealer-option gold.

    Prius HV Battery - new or reconditioned?

    Personally, if the vehicle condition is generally good then just replace the battery with a new battery from Toyota. I haven't seen reconditioned batteries provide much longevity personally but that's just my opinion.

    Horn location

    I've just taken delivery of a new 2018 GXL 2.0L A/T and I'm trying to locate the second horn to disconnect it. I'm wanting to install a new, different horn. The one behind the grille is easy, but I'm darned if I can locate it without dismantling half the car. Does anyone have any clues as to how to get to it? Thanks, Bill

    new to the RAV4

    Greetings all My wife and I are both 70 plus and have just down graded from a 2005 Ford Territory to a 2018 petrol CVT RAV4 I am having shall we say problems coming to grips with this new fangle type transmission especially when it comes to hills on long down grades there seems to be a sense of vibration and to me an increase in noise.At the other end of things is the feeling one gets when going over the crest of a hill as there is a sense that there is some form of over run with both the motor and the transmission So is all this a matter of getting use to the CVT after the Territory's transmission, I know I am an old fart and just haven't kept up with technology Over to all you young folk Geoff
  13. You've almost certainly just replied to a spambot. The Tiago is not sold in the Australian market, so why would someone from WA be looking at one?
  14. Oh I definitely will be diligent i really liked how the falcon drove. Hopefully the test on Monday will be more conclusive.

    Tarago P1346 dtc problem

    The plot thickens as the P1346 error code continues even after replacing the Camshaft Position Sensor and also the Oil Control Valve, so this has me baffled as to why the car runs perfectly but I keep getting this eror along with random Low Oil Level light. Here are some clues if anyone out there can solve the mystery. When you first drive the car in the morning the check engine light is out and you can drive the car all day without the light coming on but as soon as you turn the car off say for example, to refuel....the second time it starts, within 5 - 10 minutes the Check Engine Light comes on and this pattern keeps repeating itself.....the first time it starts everytime you can drive as far as you like but as soon as it is turned off and restarted the second time, that's when the trouble starts. Even after the CEL comes on, just turn the car off and restart immediately and the light goes out but comes back within 5 - 10 minutes......any takers as to what could be causing this frustrating problem ? Next step if no one here can solve the mystery is take the car to Toyota and let them resolve the problem but the only other alternatives I can come up with are...1. Faulty wiring harness / sensor connector somewhere. 2. Faulty ECU. 3. Timing Chain / Camshaft damage even though there is no timing chain rattle or noises of any kind and engine runs faultlessly and if the Check Engine Light Bulb was removed ( which is how I bought the car ) no one would know there was a problem.

    CV boot replacement

    I did the inner CV boot replacement on a Nissan Pulsar a few years ago. No easy way except to remove the drive shaft then remove the retaining circlip so that the CV joint and boot can be removed off the shaft. Fortunately, the alternative solution is to use a split CV boot. Following eBay listing is for reference purposes only. You will have to check with your local Toyota dealer because I am sure that a split CV boot kit is available for a Landcruiser and it may be suitable. http://www.philgilbertparts.com.au/genuine-toyota-landcruiser-split-boot-kit-hdj100-uzj100 https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/UNIVERSAL-SPLIT-CV-BOOT-KIT-DRIVE-SHAFT-STICKY-BOOT-FITS-VARIOUS-CARS/232280187693 The only check I know of is whether there are clicking noises when rotating the driveshaft. As an interim measure, I have used a large capacity syringe [no needle required] to pump replacement grease into the CV boot then tape it up to seal the boot.

    You will never know if you don't go. Put it to the dealership and see what you get ! Never be embarrassed to ask for what you believe is the right thing.

    Compliance Plate

    Try sliding the drivers seat back on its adjusters then checking on floor just in front of seat (under edge of carpet). Otherwise look around engine bay or door jams. They are usual places. Mine is older model.

    1998 Hilux 2WD

    Following URL has diagrams of your Hilux suspension. https://superpro.com.au/tradeview/index.php?view=parts_vehicleapplication&cid=999501274 I would recommend going and talking to Fulcrum Suspension. Have a read of the following URL. The following comment appears to be worth noting: In reality though you need to remember that it is a ute so the rear is designed to carry a significant load variance so will be stiff when lightly loaded. The most effective (not cost effective) outcome would be to install a set of aftermarket 'comfort leaf packs' with nicer shocks https://www.newhilux.net/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=22071

    LED headlights

    Check your owner;s manual and I suspect that you will find that your ZR6 is fitted with HID Xenon Headlights. LED bulbs should only be fitted to LED Headlights. Quite possibly, you should have considered buying the following or similar https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/4300K-Heavy-Duty-D4S-D4R-OEM-HID-Xenon-Bulb-Lexus-Honda-Mazda-Subaru-Toyota/151683975943?hash=item235111cb07%3Ag%3AHQAAAOSw5tNcL3Y7&fits=Year%3A2008|Model%3AAurion|Make%3AToyota

    Camry Center Dash Swap Can It Be Done.

    I am just wanting to know is it possible to swap my center dash console from a 2015/2016 backwards to a 2014/2015 camry and would the the same wiring connections be the same in these model years. Why am I asking well trying to see if I can get a Tesla style android headunit installed.

    Pod filter problems

    And making sure it isn't too close to a bend. Basically Toyota MAFs work best in straight smooth flow of the same diameter as the stock piping.

    Workmate 2017 single cab seat covers

    Thanks guys, although seat covers say 2015""on, these are different seats, the headrests are all in one with the seat, tried several from supercheap to no avail, especially with the fabric around back of seat, Cheers john
  27. Performance is fine no problems with the power, its just weird at times the vibration sound in the car is loud (A/C on) and at times it isn't as loud, would like to compare it to another Camry and see the difference.
