    Hi Guys Not a newbie but its been so long since I have been in here part ex my old 2005 shown in Photo a brilliant little Car 99k miles without major problems anyway just got the 2011 1.3 Yaris TR VVT-I got it November and really happy with it.
  3. Mud flaps for t sport

    So having nearly completed my expensive refurb of my Yaris T sport, I am keen to fit a set of mud flaps. Most of the 'universal' ones on the market seem to be too narrow. Has anyone successfully fitted and if so what make, of something suitable. I dont want it to look like a track car or boy racer, just something discreet and more to the point effective. My last car, Suzuki Ignis, was transformed by the fitment of factory flaps which almost eliminated the need for the rear wiper. I fitted a set to a previous t sport which worked well but the Accessory shop I bought them from like many is now a charity shop. Yours Colin.
  4. Inlet rattle Yaris t sport

    So anyway. Before any of you go down the new inlet manifold route, (£178 + gasket), get your Pcp valve, checked. My man said it has a ball that sticks, causing the manifold flutter noise, sounds like timing chain rattle. Anyway he soaked it overnight in cleaner, rattle gone. 1/4 hr labour only. Thanks Rik. The fact that the new clutch still judders and there is now a rattle underneath, prob exhaust, is just another 'Ongoing' pain. Cheers Colin
  5. Inlet rattle Yaris t sport

    Disappointed not to receive any replies, so took the drill and drilled into no.2 inlet tract. Slight improvement but not cured, so new manifold at £178 + gasket it is. Thats nothing compared to the 4k already spent on my resto. I have had the gearbox and diff rebuilt by a so called specialist, worse than before they started, but the leaking driveshaft seals still leak. After much head scratching, turns out my new JR driveshafts fitted 3 yrs ago when I previously owned the car are 1mm undersized at the entry point. Grrrrr. Had used JR before with no problems on a previous car. This is odd and has been going on for 3yrs, each time MOT advised, slight leak from geartrain, which is why I sold it in the first place. Replaced by a new Ignis which I hated even though it was doing 69mpg. After a year the dealer offered me almost what I had paid so managed to buy back my beloved Yaris. and decided to spend the extra on a restoration. Its not going well. New brakes all round, Discs pads shoes springs, new springs, wheelbearings, belts, waxoiled, they cant do the expensive rear suspension bushes, due to rusty mounts, B---. At least the nice man at Toyota has been giving me trade discount on parts. Thanks Darren. So anyway, I get it back on Monday, Lets hope the leak is fixed, the new, new clutch dosnt judder,?? and peace and tranquility have been restored, oh and the exhaust blow, only happened since the box was out, bet the manifold is cracked. It has a stainless system, mistake, A pot scourer up the tailpipe helps, has been addressed. Who said life would be easy once I got MY beloved 5dr Tsport back. I have Had 4, now, even had a supercharged £38k mercedes in between, but keep coming back to the increasingly rare 5dr Yaris. Its the easiest car for a very Old Git to live with, despite its age related problems. Cheers Colin
  6. Hi my high mileage T sport has developed the dreaded inlet flutter noise, (like a timing chain rattle). Having had it on a previous T sport I think it is the plastic manifold delaminating. On the previous car years ago, I found a thread that advised and told where to put a self tapping screw in the manifold, which cured the problem. Can no longer find thread, Can anyone advise me where to drill. The only advise online is for the Corolla which has a diff manifold. Also I am trying to rejoin the Club, but it keeps saying security not correct.??? Having bought back my beloved Tsport, and spent £3,400 on restoration, I would appreciate help in fixing this prob.

  7. Yaris MMT clutch slipping

    I have a 2005 Yaris petrol with the MMT box.It has started to show a slight slipping between gears, especially 3rd and 4th. In other words, when it changes the engine over revs a little before it changes. This is recent. Is this a known problem fixable by an adjustment I can make by chance? It has done 45K miles
  8. Exhaust rattle

    Hi fellow Yaris owners i own a Yaris 2003 reg recently in the last week i started to hear a loud rattling noise when starting engine and while in low revs. It is very annoying and turns peoples heads. I noticed it was coming from the back so i looked and the heatshield thing above the back exhaust is loose and moving around. I guess i found the issue the question is do i remove the heatshield or do i have this thing repaired. Dont really want to spend any more money on this old car anymore. Thanks for reading.
