  1. I think you're fine. This is my 2007 AT-X. https://i.imgur.com/XW6ZWkR.jpg
  2. Not sure where you live Adrian, but do you happen to know a good transmission shop north of Melbourne?
  3. Hi fellas I have a 2007 Aurion and I've had this since early 2016. Currently has done 130000km. I've serviced the car regularly (102k, 112k, 122k) and did change the front rotors and rear parking break shoes in that last service. I'm planning to do the next service at 135k. The resale value of the car is pretty low so I think I will be keeping it for a while. I'm thinking about doing a transmission fluid change at the next service. I don't know if the transmission fluid was replaced at any time during the last 11 years though. I guess it is safe to assume if hasn't been. One concern I have is that I've heard people say if the transmission fluid hasn't been changed in a long time, doing a full flush can cause issues than any good. I don't know how long is "long time". What would you do in my situation? Do a full flush or just a change (i.e. leave some of the old oil) I don't have the experience, tools or the time to do this. I've looked at some online quotes and they seem to charge around $180-250 for it. Does it sound about right? Need to check if this is for a full flush or change. Is there anything I need to watch out for when doing a transmission fluid change? Cheers
  4. Hi, I just bought a 2014 Yaris Accent and wondering where to find the Australian version of the owner's manual online as a digital document (eg: PDF). Anyone know a place? I came across this https://www.toyota.com/owners/resources/owners-manuals/yaris/2014 but it doesn't mention about the reversing camera which mine has, so I was thinking perhaps it was just the Australia version? perhaps it was installed as an accessory? I don't know. :S
  5. Hi Where would one buy a genuine 16" hubcap for a 2007 Aurion AT-X? The front passenger side hubcap had come off on my way home today. :( I found this. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Genuine-Toyota-Hub-Cap-16-Inch-Aurion-2006-2011-42602-06040/262581858528 I wonder if I might be able to buy one for cheaper. Cheers
  6. I thought it would then wear the front shoes of the two in the rear wheels more. Or even both to the same level. In my case the front shoes were fine, just the rear ones were worn off all the way down to the metal. I thought that would happen if you reversed with the parking brake on.
  7. Mine did the same thing. The mechanic readjusted the brake couple of times and it worked for only a few days before it stopped holding again. He did a bit of digging and finally found out that the rear shoes were worn off to almost nothing left in it. Replaced them and it is holding fine now. I don't know what the previous owners of the car did to wear them off.
  8. Haha I think that's the best outcome of all of this. XD
  9. LOL. I don't know what to say. I had ordered the filter from aliexpress, and when I tried to cancel it, the seller said that they had already shipped it and they couldn't cancel it. Oh well, let's see how it goes.
  10. Hi, I want to replace the cabin air filter of my 2007 Aurion AT-X and I'm wondering if this is the right part. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com.au%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F201503110290 What does those letters at the end (JA and F) mean? Thanks
