Re: DIY Service Manuals Links Broken-Need Help

Re: DIY Service Manuals Links Broken-Need Help

I posted a link to the bB manual just a few days ago for a UK member who'd been looking.
The same site lists other Toyota models but if they don't cover the Scion-badged version of the car, then the...

Re: FS: 2005 bB 1.3SR

No longer for sale. I find it so much better to drive with its expensive new Bridgestone rubber that I'm going to keep the car. It's still like new underneath and frankly drives more like a 10000KM...

Re: Opinions.

Pro: That's probably where the incoming airflow is coldest, so the charge will be at its most dense, which is what cold air inlets are all about.

Re: Help with aftermarket radio

The red and yellow are as stated in the drawing at pins 4 and 7, swapping is usually only required for VAG brand cars and a few random things from the other two large German manufacturers. I've only...

Re: Help with aftermarket radio

Yellow is acc+, red is constant. VAG were the only manufacturer to use Sony as o/e, hence my suggesting the usual swap between red and yellow, but if the yellow were already the constant supply, then...

Re: Help with aftermarket radio

Try reversing the red and yellow strands within the ISO connectors, I had to do this when I put the Kenwood DAB radio DD head unit in my bB. I had thought that only VAG cars used the opposite colours...

Re: What do you listen to when you're driving?

Re: Rims

Not without adapters to go from 4x100 to 5x??, the Toyota wheel is designed to fit a 54.1mm hub, so if these wheels have a larger bore, the adapters could be spun up to modify both that dimension and...

True, but the Rumion can be sourced in LHD form from the Phillipines, where converted JDM cars are almost as common as the original, RHD cars are in Japan. Just make sure that a conversion has been...

Re: Toyota kills the Scion brand
