  1. Mechanic in Sydney

    Hi all Can anyone recommend a reputable mechanic in Sydney with some sort of Corolla Sportivo experience? Looking to have clutch and gearbox issue fixed and would prefer expertise in this area. Happy to travel but within or the surrounding Hurstville areas would be ideal :)
  2. Cargo mat for 05 Sportivo

    Hi mate Will this fit a hatch? I think the dimensions for a sedan and hatch cargo area are slightly different.
  3. Cargo mat for 05 Sportivo

    I only managed to find wagon or sedan genuine ones on eBay, not hatch 😕
  4. Cargo mat for 05 Sportivo

    Hi mate, either carpet or rubber is fine. I wasn't sure if there was an OEM one. Ive already got the rubber type flap that folds out over the bumper, but am now carting a pram so thought it would be better to get something on top to keep the original boot carpeted floor in extra better condition. I'd prefer genuine if possible.
  5. Hi guys Does anyone know where I can find a cargo mat to fit my 05 Corolla Sportivo? Thought someone may be able to give me a heads up besides going thru a dealership, which I'm not sure if they would still be able to order any.
  6. Hi everyone I've just seen a light coloured oil stain on the garage floor, so I've checked under the car and can see the oil is dripping from the base of the gearbox. Looking closely under the bonnet it looks moist around where the gearbox oil fill hole is. Has anyone else experienced or know of this oil leak? Would be great to hear from anyone with more info and advice :)
  7. Oil leak from water pump on 2005 Corolla Sportivo

    Thanks so much for your reply mate. I was thinking the same thing too. I'm now wondering why the service mechanic at Toyota recommended to replace the water pump. Any ideas?
  8. Oil leak from water pump on 2005 Corolla Sportivo

    Friendly bump hoping to get some feedback.
  9. Hi guys It's been a while but thought I would post a thread to get some expert help from current and previous owners of the mighty 2ZZGE. I noticed a couple of drops of oil on the garage floor and had my mechanic look under the car where he said he could see oil around the water pump. He said it's not an urgent fix and will more than likely stop but could come back. Well, that's exactly what went away and now it's come back. So my questions are: Is it likely that the water pump can leak oil? Has anyone else had experienced this same issue? What kind of costs would I be looking at for the OEM part and labour? Thanks in advance
  10. Remote key replacement

    Thanks heaps for your replies guys. I didn't even think to look on eBay, I would however prefer it to be done properly. Knowing my luck I'll stuff up something! Would appreciate your help offer mr2, I'm located in Sydney.
  11. Hi guys, The plastic casing on my remote key fob has started to crack and am wondering if anyone else has experienced this and what the best way replacement method is? I'm guessing it's a dealer related issue where they need to re-code the key but wasn't sure of cost or if there is a part number available. I've attached a photo to show its current condition - cracking starts from 'lock' button. Any advice would would be great.
  12. Power Steering leak 2005 Corolla Sportivo

    Thanks again mate. Power steering fluid is currently on minimum. Can you recommend a mechanic in the St George area?
  13. Power Steering leak 2005 Corolla Sportivo

    Thanks for your reply mate. Do you think it's worth going to the dealer for this fix? My usual mechanic is on holidays and don't know of any other reputable ones that are local.
  14. Hi guys, I've noticed my Sportivo has left a small spot of red/pink fluid on the garage floor. As it was located at the front drivers side I'm presuming it is power steering fluid. Has anyone else experienced this type of leak on their Sportivo? Would it be best to take it to a dealer or can anyone recommend a professional mechanic in Sydney who knows what they are doing and uses genuine parts? Thanks in advance :)
  15. Remote key not working on 05 Sportivo

    hi guys, well i managed to find some time and get around to fixing this but found as soon as i had unscrewed the casing screw and took out the 2 button piece it was actually working. the buttons were locking and unlocking no probs. do i need to worry or shall i just change the batter anyway?
