  1. Hi all, Does anyone have experience installing an aftermarket head unit in a 2015+ Toyota Corolla Ascent Auto (ZRE182R)? I've recently had a sub and amp wired up to the factory head unit using the line out converter built into my amplifier but it sounds terrible. Attached is a photo of what the head unit looks like in my car. Do the factory units in these cars cut bass at higher volumes? Is the factory unit poor quality? I'm looking at installing a Kenwood DMX7017BTS (https://www.kenwood.eu/car/navigation_multimedia/multimedia/DMX7017BTS/) and also want to retain my factory steering controls, reverse camera and USB port. Hoping someone out there has managed to get an aftermarket head unit put in so I can get some advice/feedback on whether it's worth the $1,000+ investment. Thanks!
  2. Hey all, I got me a Zre182r. Looked and found coilovers, bc racing z1 series part number c-116-vm. Looking for a place to get them installed, that way if it ******s out its there fault and not mine. Anyone know of any places that does a good cheap at a fair price? Option1 garage are doing a special where you buy coils from them $1199 and get install and allignment for $350 Anyone know anyone who can beat that? Let me know, thanks heaps peeps peace
  3. Hello, First post so please go easy on me! I recently bought a 2004 Hilux Xtra Cab 3.4 V6 and was thinking about buying a canopy for it as I have been in contact with someone with one to sell. But, I only really need it for camping every so often so want to be able to install and remove relatively easily . . . if possible! Does anyone else do this or are they more suited to a permanent fitting? The other alternative is to have the sports bar on the front (which it has already) and then get a rear bar to match and then sort out a cover. Not sure what way to go but really want to be able to break it down quickly. Carruss.
  4. Hey Guys, I've had a search a few times but can't find exactly what I'm looking for. I want to install a set of sportivo side skirts on my ascent but don't have the "fitting kit" (Toyota don't sell the fitting kit separately - I've asked) What I'd like to know is: - What bolts/grommets/screws/seals/double sided tape do I need? - or does anyone have a set of installation instructions for this? - is there a tutorial on how to install? if there is I couldn't find it. Cheers guys. C-rolla.
  5. if someone could post up a running guide of side step, nudge bar and tow bar installation guides/ mounting points would be great cheers :)
  6. How To Install a Brake Controller in Aurion/Camry using "Seat-Heater Power" Just bought a brake controller for towing a camper trailer with electric brakes. Meant to be "plug-and-play" but it isn't and needs custom wiring. Anyway, thought I'd have a go at installing it myself and uploading it, since the quoted install was $120-$300 (AutoBarn cheapest btw). The brake controller electrics require power from the battery, the stoplight signal, a 20 amp fuse and an electric brake wire running from the dash to the previously Toyota installed towbar at the rear. 4 Wire diagram that I got with it for the Voyager Tekonsha brake controller is shown below: The instructions say to locate the brake controller as far away as possible from the antenna and radio so as an added precaution to reduce RF noise I added a ferrite core to the power and brake wires as shown below to filter out noise a bit. Using "Seat-Heater" Power Having looked at it, I wanted to integrate it neatly into the Aurion electrics without the need for putting wires through to the engine bay directly to the battery. This avoids some fiddley work feeding loose wires through the grommet in the firewall and avoids designing in a relay, to switch off the brake controller when the car is turned off since I am paranoid it will run the battery down! As it turns out, the Aurion/Camry Electric wiring manual is available (07EWD.pdf). This manual is separate to the service manuals. Plenty of underutilised power is available in the junction box in the front-left passenger side behind the glove box (eg. Left Power Seat {30A}, mirror heater and seat heaters {20A}...hey, so I have an ATX!} Beautiful thing is, it is all pre-wired from the factory, and even the fuses are pre-installed so you can easily borrow power from one of these locations depending on your amperage requirements. Anyway here's the step by step on the install, hope it helps someone... Step 1. Prep Assuming you have the Toyota towbar and wiring harness installed, then: Remove the glove box and backing, left passenger foot sills, B pillar cover, front left foot cowl area cover and left cover in boot area to expose the towbar wiring harness. Here is a picture of the junction box at the left print passenger side. While I was there I took the opportunity to clean the air conditioner filter which was surprisingly full of leaves! Locate the thick ~2mm^2 blue electric brake wire in the boot (mine was taped back and exposed near the left rear wheel arch inside the boot. Next unhook the negative terminal on the battery prior to any electrical work. Step 2. Feed through the Electric Brake Wire Attach a suitable length wire (mine was heavy gauge 12awg) to the blue electric brake wire (I soldered and covered mine in heat shrink but you could crimp it with a butt connector, blue wire would be best but I had black). Feed the wire from the boot through to the back seat then along the left of the vehicle under the foot sills etc. to the dash. Clean up with cable ties. Step 3. Attach Power Wire to Brake Controller In the junction box behind the glove box locate the "seat-heater" 20A power supply no. 19 pin since we are going to use this to power the brake controller (shown in pic below). If you have higher amperage requirements an alternative would be to tap into the power seat supply - though I'm not sure this turns off when the car turns off. Connect a wire to the power on pin 19 for the brake controller here. I searched everywhere for a proper Toyota female junction pin, I had no luck at Toyota parts or auto electricians, in the end I drilled out the plug to make space for a standard female terminal bought from Jaycar. Step 4. Splice Stop light signal wire Splice a wire to the stop light signal wire (blue wire in my case). I used a scotch connector for this. Connect this spliced wire to the brake controller stop light input. Picture shows connector on my job below. Step 5. Complete the circuit Next you want to attach the negative side of the battery to the brake controller. In most cars negative is earthed to the chassis, as it is for the Aurion. Attach the negative wire from the brake controller to a suitable earth point. In this case I chose the earth point below the junction box. Step 6. Mount the brake controller Couldn't find a great place for the brake controller, I put it below the steering wheel and fed the wires to it from behind the centre console. Step7. Check Fuse and Relabel. The fuse for the seat-heater is under the junction box we have been using. Check it is installed should be a 20A micro-blade fuse shown below. I relabeled mine so I can find it if the brake controller blows.... Final Step. Reconnect negative terminal of battery, then do whatever you manual says to calibrate/tune the brake controller. You're done! Get the kids to cleanup and reassemble the car while you relax.....argh!
