  1. Do you mean the driver's window goes all the way up with one click? Yes, it did. I don't think I've seen one that doesn't. Either way, I just bought whatever I found available without asking and it turned out it was one of those.
  2. Yes, all original parts sourced from wreckers. You will need motors (which come attached to the mechanism), switches, switch surrounds and door cards all from a power window equipped car. Not that many came with rear power windows. Beware, door cards from cars made in South Africa (mostly hatchbacks) do not match perfectly. They have little annoying differences like a clip hole in the wrong place. From memory (car is now gone) electricals (plugs/switches etc) didn't have any difference.
  3. Yeah, somebody probably drove it low on oil or something like that and killed the bearings. How much is it to change the oil pump? If it's not too much I would try a last ditch effort and see.
  4. What do you mean by often? How many k's on the clock? And when was the pump changed last time if at all? Your only hope is that the pump is gone. If that's not it, you don't have any other hope, the engine is worn out. You don't need to thrash the car to kill the engine. Just drive a few km when it's low on oil or some such and your bearings are toast. Lots of sludge would suggest some neglect in oil changes, possibly running the engine low on oil. Changing oil on time and with the correct one should keep internals clean even in high mileage cars. Also, you need high oil pressur
  5. I have added power windows to my wife's 2005 wagon (car didn't have any) and they work very well with one exception. The driver's door window doesn't do the one touch function (just click it up and goes all the way - I have to hold it up). Is this a problem with the electronic board under the master switches, or did I forget to get some other gizmo from the donor car, or did I make a mistake in installing it? Just to clarify, all the motors, switches, etc came with their wiring harnesses came from the same donor, they all just plugged into my car, wire colours matched, etc, pretty much pl
  6. I am looking at doing a few jobs on my wife's corolla soon(-ish) and would like to know if there's any chance I can buy OEM parts cheaper than main dealers. Anyone have any info, please share here. I am looking at front wheel bearings, dampers all around, tailgate struts (wagon), possibly brakes (discs). On another topic, I would like to add fog lights to the car. I have found all the wiring is there even though the car is a povo pack Ascent just need the lights themselves and perhaps the dash switch. I have looked around but can't find anywhere the part numbers, anyone
  7. I don't own any Toyota at the moment and the only one I ever owned was a Liteace. Not the best car in the world to start with, but did its job perfectly and never let me down, so all in all quite happy to have had it. Of late though I discovered after going through a number of cars including BMWs, Renaults and Peugeots (I am very particular to the 60-70s vintage for a number of reasons, but have owned more recent cars too). that I would really like somethiong rear wheel drive. Nothing wrong with front wheel drive, and I love all my cars, but I was really hooked when I discovered some time ago
