  1. I've read that upgrading the front brakes to Kluger twin pot calipers is the go, with larger discs. I've got them sitting out back, waiting for me to clean them up, give 'em a service and a lick of paint, and then I'll stick them in. Oh yeah, giving the transmission an oil change too. Flushing it and filling it with fully synthetic made for smoother changes in my departed TRD. Another job that I'll do at the same time as the brakes, which I'll do when I get a new CV joint, since my current one is shot haha haaaa sigh
  2. Hi all, Has anyone replaced the drivers side inner CV boot before? And how much of a bugger of a job is it to do? Suspect I have a small split, and get a bad feeling it's been there for a while. Any tips on checking if the bearings etc are fine?
  3. 07 Sportivo, same thing, filter shows. Odd design, but it's water tight so I'm not overly fussed 🙂
  4. Oooof, that's one sexy unit! Is there a noticeable whine when you give it the foot?
  5. Absolutely loving this thread, really keen to hear if the TVS1900 gives a bit more of that sexy supercharger whine over the TRD variant. Dumb question about the coilovers - you can get them without the car being lowered? I love the height my ZR6 sits at compared to my old TRD, and wouldn't mind upgrading the suspension to combat the occasional axle tramp so long as I don't lose any of that height
  6. Hi all, Just wondering if anyone else has discovered water has somehow found its way into the boot, namely the spare tyre well. I'm going to remove all the boot lining and hose down the rear end at some point to see if I can spot where it came from, so mostly just curious. I was involved in a rear-ending a year & a half back, so it could be the panel beaters were just average with their overall work. Cheers!
  7. I think the motor is behind the maplight (the light next to the roof controls), if you pop the light off and remove the motor you'll be able to manually slide the roof back, though I'm not sure how you'd go about getting it to pop back up to form the watertight seal, I'm just going by this thread:https://www.toyotanation.com/forum/103-camry-3rd-4th-gen-1992-1996-1997-2001-1st-gen-solara-1999-2003/358984-moonroof-stuck-open-2000-camry-xle-s-raining.html Hope you have a win
  8. This morning after getting to a jobsite, I was sitting with just the radio on when the vsc & engine lights came on. Long story short my battery had finally given up the ghost, glad workmates were there so I could duck out and get a freshie :D
  9. I feel like she's a bit heavy on the fuel, sits around the 10.5~11l/100 mark with my style of driving, whereas my old trd with more kms on the clock would an easy 1l/100 lower than that with the same style of driving. Changing out the plugs is a cheap enough exercise in my books, also going to do an injector clean (in my ultrasonic cleaner) and have a rebuild kit on the way, because what the heck. Mostly curiosity as opposed to necessity really
  10. One I had come up was the supercharger coupler was worn, so when the car was idling it had a very diesel engine ticking sound coming from the sc snout, the noise would go away when you applied some revs.
  11. haha damn, I only just ordered the NGK's yesterday and didn't even think of trying the pamper20 code. Oh well! :p
  12. If you're really keen you can buy a stethoscope from supercheap, otherwise with the screwdriver you pretty much have your ear against the end of it which helps you to hear if the sound is coming from the thing it's touching.
  13. Typically you can't, though if you use an app like BTMono you can, but the quality is compromised.
