  1. A few months ago I actually re did a few of the earths in the engine bay, I'll recheck those. I found one earth in cabin on the drivers side, just where the bottom of the door is, but it looked nice and clean, I should actually traced the cables back come to think of it, oops.
  2. Hey guys, My little EP91 failed it's WoF (MoT for you UK folk) on a few things, ones that i will get a mechanic to sort out, but I'm pretty keen to try figure these out: - Brake lights flicker when indicators are going The brake light bulbs are.. cheap and nasty LEDs, but could a poor ground be causing this? I will try some proper bulbs first - High stop light is on when the park lights are on This, I couldn't replicate when I got home.. so I'm not sure what to make of this. Any ideas?
  3. Sorry man, I have no idea I'm not really mechanically knowledgeable. Someone else here will know! Sing out when you get your Glanza running and want to meet up Or if you ever need a hand with anything.
  4. Ah nah the Starlet in my profile pic isn't mine Mine is silver, with a giant gash on the drivers side, with silver/grey rims Fair point in regards to the compressor side.. Bishopdale to Burwood isn't far, I''m sure it will be fine
  5. I drive through Linwood everyday You'll still have the exhaust spinning the turbo, so there's no real way of bypassing it. Do you have to travel far? I'd hate to say to nana it home and then it turns pear shape
  6. I'd honestly not drive it, just to safe. Tow it home one evening You don't really know if the bearing could have enough shaft play for a blade to get munched.. then it's fun times on Facebook trying to find another 4EFTE. Once you're home, pull the turbo off and take a look. I'd probably find a second hander Hello from Chch too! Look out for my silver beater 😛
  7. Hey guys, Any tips on how to remove the plastic number plate surround on the boot? Mine has broken clips in places and is rattling around: Cheers!
  8. Interested to see how these headlight clips turn out.. can't remember but I think my headlight mounts are all broken.
  9. Welp, I am am just trying to help them out, if there are clearances and stuff they need checking, if you could take a scan or photo of a couple pages, I can pass it on and see what they say. At the moment, it's just third gear that needs replacing, thankfully.
  10. Hi guys, Does anyone anyone have a workshop manual for an EP82 Starlet? Specifically for rebuilding the gearbox? Mine's under the scalpel at the moment, but the workshop doing it are having trouble sourcing a workshop manual for the torque specs. Cheers!
  11. I ordered my new coolant temp sensor from there, genuine Toyota. Arrived within their specified time frame, no issues There is partsouq.com as well for parts
  12. Replaced ther coolant temp sensor today. The old one looks, well, old. Signs of the cooling system not being that great too.
  13. I've got a 1996 model and it's a 2 pin, but same location as you're referring to. I think I'll get off my lazy bum and replace it tomorrow
  14. Silly Q - but was that the sensor that sits closest to the coolant hose that goes to the top of the radiator? Two pin sensor?
