    HKS SSQV installation question

    You should put at least a jubilee / hose clip on there just to make sure it doesn't pop off from the pressure etc
  3. So never take these off the car? (pic attached) I was hoping to powder coat them in the future. Not worth it then / leave them be??

    Who knew starlets had a pollen filter??

    Quick update on explaining the mystery. I got in touch with Jay through TGTT who told me that: "Toyota started introducing a different evaporator housing from Dec 97 (coincides nicely with the mk2 V) which incorporated cabin pollen filters. As you can imagine in Japan this was a major feature as they are all about the air quality. Worth noting that it's not just as cut and dry as that. Pollen filters only became factory in 97, however before that you could still spec them as a dealer option. That means there's 1996 V's running round with them too albeit retrofitted." Therefore, this would also generally agree with why toyodiy parts catalogue has only 97+ V's listed for the pollen filters. Jay also mentioned that the EP82's never got them as they were obviously previous to this. When in doubt. Ask Jay!

    Jam manifold

    Nice, clear differences there from stock. So was Jam the only aftermarket company to do a cast one then? I mean if there was another company who made a cast one, it'd be pretty hard to tell what is genuine JAM and what isn't, no?

    optional extras and shed clear out

    http://www.ukstarletowners.com/topic/53119-ha-finially-proved-the-turbo-timers-off-the-mr2s-arnt-genuine/ Just to help - Seems the turbo timer switch is just for an aftermarket part (although looks oem). Not toyota OEM or an optional extra.

    Jam manifold

    Cool find! My question is how do we know this is a genuine JAM manifold, they are usually not stamped are they?

    Cool, looks like we've settled it then, unless someone with a 96 shows a pic of one lol No idea about gt's though. Thanks for explaining the pipe function also. Makes me wonder where all the junk that the filter picks up goes to in mine though!

    Who knew starlets had a pollen filter??

    Out of interest, people saying they have a 98 glanza v - is that deffo a v from the factory? I.e. not a conversion and still has the filter??

    I think you may be right. Here is a pic of my genuine 96 v. (Sorry couldnt rotate pic) The box has no filter hole. However i notice there's a pipe comnected that looks like it goes through the firewall, your car doesn't have that pipe so toyota must have changed a few things on the facelift system.

    Actually reading the threads on tgtt so many contradicting views. I'd be interested to see what the definitive answer is. Some saying 98 spec glanza has them whilst 96 spec doesn't. Vast majority that say they have them is ep91 non turbo / not glanza models. Pretty certain my 96 does not have them remember looking numerous times...

    Glanzas don't have them. Only non turbo ep91 / uk spec ones do. I am unsure of gt turbos but there is a thread on tgtt explaining this.

    1996 Glanza V auto [Price drop]

    Is this an Automatic?
  14. Can anyone tell me is the optional extra TRD Carbon Dial Surround REAL carbon fibre or just plastic with a carbon effect look / covering? Pic attached of the part in question. Thanks
  15. Cheers for the info all. Who was Mc Chu, wasn't he in Thailand? I recall joining the starlet community right around the time that he slowed down / stopped producing his products. Was he a one man band? Shame would love some of his original parts. Was hoping the TRD one was carbon due to the cost when they pop up for sale..
  16. Just a relatively small problem but a warning to others buying more expensive items. I purchased an HKS pink oil filter for £17.00 off this chap advertising on fb marketplace. After receiving it today, covered in oil, the box too, it is damaged and has already been used on a car! I am actually amazed at the stupidity that this has happened and that the seller actually thought they could do this and send a used oil filter to someone when they have charged what it would be for a new filter (as I was expecting). Thankfully paid paypal so claiming in process, but a warning to others as who knows what other crap he'll try and sell.

    Carbon Goodies

    I think carbon goodies has ceased doing anything starlet related anymore. I had no replies to various messages either about parts. Should probably be removed from traders...
  18. Can anyone share a real picture of one of these, I have no idea what the part looks like or where it actually fits but it is meant to be some sort of garnish / cover for the front bumper grill and there are supposedly 4 of them. The description on the image attached is 53141C (full part number 52127-10030-C0) when you search google for the image it doesn't show a real pic of one. On toyodiy it is: 53141C GARNISH, RADIATOR GRILLE 52127-10030-C0 BLACK, 040 , 1A0 4 $4.86 Much appreciated.

    Finally News On The Glanza S Bonnets

    Can you still do the Glanza V bonnets? Tried to message you direct on facebook but no response...
  20. Any carbon bonnets for glanza v?
  21. Ah Ok, considering my Glanza is black, I think i'll leave it BUT thanks for taking the time to settle my mind on what the hell they were and where they went. (Mine has never had any on so didn't realise they had them there from factory.) I get how the bolt caps are important though and make a decent difference. My toyota can still get them in, checked this morning. but like I said 5.16 each.
  22. Thank you very much for that image of them, really appreciate it. Do they just clip over the vertical parts in the bumper that I've outlined on the attached image then? If so then I really don't see the point of them and don't get what they're for? I was going to buy them but at £5.16 each unless they serve a purpose I think not, especially when the bumper is colour coded anyway..
  23. Doesn't matter now. Managed to get it pristine clean inside the reservoir.
  24. How can it be done? (Glanza V) Thanks
