Re: Club40+

I would strip all the parts you want from it and put them on the other XB. Sell what's left to the scrap yard. Not worth dumping anymore into it without a title or the ability to get another one....

Re: Club40+

Quite a few older guys rolling around in XB's. Guess I'm not the odd man out, even though it often feels like it. Young girls always stare at my car and then look away when they see who's behind the...

Re: Where to go to get suspension adjusted?

I took my XB to a shop that only does suspension and alignment. I suspect he didn't want to mess with it at the price I was quoted. I figured that they could be soaked with penetrating oil or...

Re: Where to go to get suspension adjusted?

Unfortunately, the lockrings were seized and the guy couldn't break them loose. He suggested a new set of springs for $500, but I could get 4 brand new coilovers for that price, and they'd be nice...

Re: Correct tire pressure?

Drives so much better now. No more pulling to the right on the freeway, lol.

Re: Correct tire pressure?

I had it aligned the same day I had the new tires installed. I'm running 34psi cold as of yesterday morning. Good tip on the rotation every oil change. Will make it easier to remember, lol! Thx :D

Re: Correct tire pressure?

My last set was the same size. I ran them at 35 psi. They wore on the outside badly on the front and slightly on the inside on the back. Though I suspect that was an alignment issue. I really just...

Correct tire pressure?

So I just had new tires installed on my 06 XB. They're 205/50-15's. The shop inflated them to 29psi, which is correct for the stock tires. Honestly, the steering feels a bit sluggish. My biggest...

Re: Where to go to get suspension adjusted?

Sorry I left this one hanging so long. Getting a new set of tires installed this coming Monday and afterward I'm taking it to a shop to have an alignment done and the suspension set up. Only going to...

Re: Spark plugs and burning oil

I've never seen plugs look like that. +1 on the missing electrodes.

Where to go to get suspension adjusted?

I have an 06 that's lowered on coilovers. It's too low and I need to get it raised up. Problem is I don't have a jack or 2x4's, etc. So I need to take it to a shop. I really only need to go up about...

Re: Trying to pick a grill color

Wheels are silver as well. Stock alloy's. I'm mulling over doing a satin red on the grills and the hatch handle.

Trying to pick a grill color

Hey guys, my XB is silver and I want to paint the grills a different color than black. I'm looking for suggestions on what color would go well with the main color of the car? If you have suggestions...

Re: LED Tail lights

I was looking at the same ones. Nice to know they're good quality. 😊

Re: Codes Yay!

I just ran a free carfax and it was sold new in Corvallis, OR. The PO bought it in Salem in 2012. Like I mentioned before I believe he knew there was a problem and sold it to me like that. I did some...

Re: Codes Yay!

I replaced the air filter last week, so I know I'm in the right spot. I'll have to take a picture and upload it. My plug looks fine though. I think the PO knew about the lights and just disconnected...

Re: Codes Yay!

What gen is yours? My airbox looks way different. The plug isn't blue either. It's raining otherwise I'd post a pic, maybe tomorrow.

Re: Codes Yay!

Any chance you can post a picture of the plug? I found one on top of the airbox, but it looks okay. Lights came back on after two days of driving. Tried the battery disconnect again and will see as...

XB owners in Oregon?

Hey all, might be a long shot but I figured I'd try. Since I bought mine I've been seeing you toaster drivers everywhere now!;) Just wondering who's out there and where you're at. If there are any...

Headlight parts (boots)

Anyone know the Scion term or P/N for the rubber boots on the back of the headlights? There are none on mine and living in the wet PNW I would like to get a set.

Re: Codes Yay!

I thought it was odd too. I ended up pulling the battery cable for 10 mins and reconnecting it. I fired it up and the lights were all off. I didn't go for a drive, but hoping it was a glitch. There...

So the vcs/trac/Check engine came on last night. It runs and drives fine, but I have the dreaded lights. I took it to Autozone and had them run a scan (pic for codes). I have literally owned this...
