  1. Well presented review however, I do not want to see so much of the presenter. I research vehicle reviews for the all the visual details. All I want to see are the cars with voice over not so much of the reviewers face & animated actions.
  2. may I suggest you research these I purchased mine at Bunnings for $119 each. Gives you access from anywhere via your phone or pc in live / real time. Timer to turn on / off the light or light on with movement detected. Cloud access recording for free for previous 24hrs also low cost access for longer periods. Too many features to say here. Check them out. They look like a para flood light but have some high tech features. Sengled Snap Smart LED Light And Wi-Fi Security Camera
  3. Maybe a BSC outlet or similar can match and upgrade the gears. They supply power transmission parts like gears, bearings, seals ect.
  4. Just to be clear the engine never actually failed it just stopped running at the time then restarted afterwards ?
  5. does this help ? https://www.toymods.org.au/forums/threads/54262-Clutch-wont-bleed
  6. And MB Insurance is underwritten by QBE Insurance (Australia) Limited
  7. Or perhaps modify the TCR10 bar fit ?
  8. Is the Tarago currently unregistered or just changing owners ? Most workshops know where to look for vehicle ID's. What is missing the VIN plate or the compliance sticker or another ? Perhaps your Toyota dealer could be of help for you.
  9. Glad the family is enjoying the new Rav. Hopefully the annoying rattle issue is resolved at service time. I like the concept / size ect, but still cannot come to grips with CVT gearboxes.
  10. consider this complete with bezels ready to install... https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Full-Kit-Set-Fog-Light-Spot-Driving-Lamp-Black-For-Toyota-Aurion-GSV50-12-17/142699468390?fits=Year%3A201
  11. This maybe helpful https://www.rav4world.com/threads/1997-3sfe-to-5sfe-swap.212609/
  12. see this on Ebay 6 available Not ZR but KOOL wheels https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Genuine-Toyota-Aurion-Oct-06-Oct-11-Kappa-Alloy-Wheel-18-X-7-5/262856892695?epid=611244837&hash=item3d337de117:g:ZdEAAOSwksxdd-Pc&frcectupt=true
  13. Nope, mine are mounted just to the left of the rear view mirror, high up. The driver cannot see the camera from the drivers seat so no vision is obscured by the device.
  14. I found these, not exactly what you need but interesting info.. https://www.toymods.org.au/site/ try searching here for swaps. also https://www.toyotaownersclub.com/forums/topic/36258-hiace-engine-swap/

    I read this in GoAuto in May this year ..... Toyota spokesman said....While Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support will be progressively rolled out as standard equipment, owners of the current-generation Corolla small car and Camry mid-size car, as well as early adopters of the new RAV4, will be able to have it retrofitted. The Japanese brand said the retrofit will be available via its dealer network with only a “quick visit” to a local dealership required to have it installed.
  16. From new I had a 1978 HiAce 5 door and stupidly never lifted the engine cover to service it correctly for 120k kms. Boom it seized ! Back in the day, 1979, the were no Jap imports engines ect. So I replaced it with a Holden 202 6 cylinder mated to the original gearbox (using a Dellow adaptor ) She went really well but the diff ratio was too low so i fitted 16" wheels (taller tyres) to the rear to compensate. Terribly award to work under /around the engine area. Today I am sure there a a zillion easier engine / transmission alternatives to use.
  17. No not a Rav4, but in both my Camry's, the cameras are mounted passenger side of the rear view mirror. They are not visible from the drivers position, the wiring is tucked in along roof lining then into the rubber on the A pillar, across under the glove box into the usb pods i have installed. I am using Viofo A119S cameras,very compact units.
  18. The PCD is the same as Falcon however the bore size is different . Toyota has 60.1mm and Ford has 73.1mm. Therefore you would need to run with concentric spigot / hub rings to reduce Falcon 73.1mm down to Toyota 60.1mm. I would suggest using steel or alloy but avoid plastic / nylon. Never fit and drive your car without using the spacer rings. Dangerous and unsafe !
  19. The PCD or stud pattern is 114.3. The 1.5 is the thread metric pitch. Offset / ET will be 45. The tyre size you choose will be most important to having adequate clearance in the wheel well to avoid suspension & guard contact If you have an 2019 ASV70 Accent Sport your original wheels should be running. 215/55R17 7.5Jx17 ET45 5x114.3 M12 x 1.5 60.1 The 2019 ASV Camry SL runs 235/45ZR18 8Jx18 ET50 5x114.3 M12 x 1.5 60.1 You will notice the offset /ET changes to centre the wheel / tyre in the wheel well for clearance.
  20. Maybe this appeals to you. I used a Rostra system on my 1994 Toyota Soarer. Good quality not cheap. find at http://www.rostra.com/search.php
  21. Welcome Mel, Hope you find as many interesting articles here as I do
  22. G'day Mate, and welcome. Tell us more about your Crown.
  23. Obviously different calipers were used during production. There is clearly a big difference in the size & shape of the pads which will reflect in the caliper shape & size. If you are still unsure just by looking, check your local auto parts store has both in stock and as suggested take a sample along on the day you are doing the job to match it up to purchase the correct pads.
  24. I was most fortunate to have paid only $400 for all four new wheels. In December 2017 a Queensland dealership was having a showroom clear out and they never put a reserve price on the rims. No one else bid so I won 4 genuine Toyota SX rims, in boxes with the centre caps, delivered to me for only $400 ! Some days you can have a win. I never had them fitted with new tyres and installed until early this year.
  25. I recently put these Camry 2017 SX rims on my 2014 SL. 18" running 225/45/18.
