  1. Hi all Can someone please tell me what the recommended oil is to use for our Corolla Sportivo’s? Some advice on what type of oil and best suited brands would be great 🙂 Tryng to compare what the OEM specs are vs aftermarket eg. full synthetic etc Thanks
  2. Thanks so much for your informative replies guys. Much appreciated. Ok, so my next question is - where are the best places to get these parts from? So far I’m keen on the Injen CAI, BC BR coil overs, air filter, rotors, brake pads and lower control arm options. Is there a one stop shop that has all these? If you could drop me some links to get started so I can look more closely into the options that would be great 🙂 Re servicing parts: what would be the OEM spec parts I need eg which Ryco oil filter? Would Sparesbox be your go-to place for these servicing parts or mods? Thanks again guys.
  3. Hi all Im looking to give my Stivo some tasteful mods but would like to learn more in the process. CAI - back in the day lots of owners went for the TRD CAI setup which at first was a struggle to install on facelift models and now looks like a discontinued product. How does Injen or Simota Racing rate? Are there any other suitable brands out there? COILOVERS - keen to explore what you guys are using. AIR FILTER - Worth replacing the OEM spec with something like K&N? SERVICING PARTS - what oil and oil filters is recommend for a general service? Would prefer fully synthetic and something suitable for the occasional track day BRAKES - rotors and pads advice? Again, something suitable for the occasional track day SWAY BARS/LOWER CONTROL ARMS - Whiteline? Superpro? BLACK HOUSING HEADLIGHTS - really like this look. Are there headlights you can buy or is this a DIY paint thing? Thanks in advance guys.
  4. The clutch pedal seems fine and normal. I'm always able to shift at the same load time, it's only when I accelerate hard you can hear the revs go way up as the gears aren't engaging properly.
  5. Wonder how the Exedy OEM replacement compares, has anyone used this kit in their Stivo? https://www.sparesbox.com.au/part/exedy-standard-replacement-clutch-kit-tyk-7334
  6. Ouch! Just got a quote from a couple of Toyota spare parts dealerships - disc, bearing and cover - $1300 for the OEM clutch parts! Looking at around $2K for the whole install with parts and labour. Does this sound right?
  7. Thanks for your replies guys, sorry for the delay! I've been closely looking at the Exedy clutch kit which seems like really good value and has had rave reviews with it's like-for-like OEM build quality. I do prefer to keep everything OEM as the car is now my wife's daily driver and don't want anything heavy duty that has a hard pedal feel.
  8. Hi everyone Well it looks like it's finally time to replace the original clutch. I'd like to keep everything Toyota genuine OEM and would love to hear from anyone who might know some info I'm after: Part number of genuine OEM clutch Best place to purchase genuine OEM clutch Best place in Sydney to install Thanks in advance :)
  9. UPDATE: Managed to take out the centre concole (thanks Squalled for the handy tips) but the plastic hinge on the left hand side has snapped off as it was only hanging on by a thread. Now the compartment door has nothing to hold it in place and the spring won't function without it being secured. I don't think using glue to stick the plastic piece of the hinge is going to hold very well. I'm thinking maybe some wire to try and hold it in place. Any ideas? I could maybe find another compartment door either new from dealer if they have it or second hand?
  10. Thanks dude. I thought you meant to take out the actual air con vents.
  11. Hi mate, do you mean the centre air con vents on each side of the head unit?
  12. Legend! Thanks man. If you are able to flick through those pics just as a reference that would be great also!
  13. Ok cool. So shall I just follow your steps in that order to remove the trim pieces? I'm guessing once the centre console is out I can just clip the spring in pretty easily?
  14. Oh wow - I didn't know it could all pull apart without me breaking it even more! I will try and give it a go, I may need you as back up though if you're keen to help out. Happy to provide payment for your trouble too.
