I cannot give a definite answer but I mainly recall seeing towbars fitted with a cutout to the rear bumper.
I have previously seen towbars fitted to Aurions in the wreckers but too much effort [for me] to remove them and then fit.
You want to make certain that you fit a quality heavy duty towbar to make it worthwhile.
Attached fitting instructions will give you an idea of what is involved.
2007 Aurion atx/touring..180Kkm. Old thread...price update 😉
My sons driveshaft has split boots, leaked grease everywhere and the cv joint is rough and worn.
He’s a conservative driver.
I'm guessing that distance is reasonably ok and typical?
My daughter has one to so I might look at hers a bit closer. Hers has done 190Kkm.
Cost at the local mechanic was ~ $500 inclusive of labour and a reconditioned drive shaft.
I have some done some searching on the topic of towbars for the Aurion Touring 2010 - 2011. I actually have two of these. A silver one and a grey. I love these cars. I need to put a towbar on at least one. From the research I have done it seems you have to cut out a bit of the lower valance or rear bumper for the towbar to fit. Then I saw one the other day as it flashed past in the traffic and it appeared to exit under the bumper and rise up, hence no cut in bumper. Was I seeing things ? Or is there one available that fits like that. Thank you in advance for any help.
So, I got myself an AEM Cold Air Intake system for my 2000 Toyota Celica SX, but I am curious to know if I am allowed to have this mod on while I’m on my Green Ps.
The VicRoads Guide to modification for motor vehicles says: ‘air filter (including pod-type air filters) on EFI vehicles if there are no other intake modifications, all sensors remain in place and the filter is a dry (non-oiled) type’ is classed as an ‘Approved Modifications’ and then someone on this Forum Page: https://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/1772537 said:
“IN Victoria, it states that P Plates cannot drive engines with modifications to improve performance.
That is open to interpretation. Technically you are modifying the air intake system, not the engine.”
So, I’m basically modding the intake system, and of course the exhaust, and nothing else. So, is it illegal for P platers like me in Victoria to give my Celica those two Mods?
Spot on recommendation to replace both rear shocks.
Replacing the rear wheel bearing is more straight forward than the front wheel bearing essentially being a bolt off and bolt on replacement assembly part. Following YouTube video will give you an idea of what is involved.
