    Letter from The Mayor of London. ULEZ.

    Hmmm, Looks like the signage for ULEZ is not legal, and therefore you might not have to pay!

    @RichC4 - Gale my recommendation panned out.

    Light bar installation info needed.

    Really you should go via a relay, and also have the power to the relay switched also so that high beam can be on without the light bar. If not then you will most probably fail your next mot as your high beam pattern will be incorrect.

    Who is doing what maintenance today?

    Hmm that will be interesting - no taking the bulbs out of the upper lights now as they are LED units! Still if that's the case then I guess some tape over the lower bumper ones at MOT time :) Then there is only 1 set :expressionless:

    Who is doing what maintenance today?

    Got around to completing the installation of the new rear light clusters. Big thank you to @Tractionman for pointing me in the right direction to a seller on eBay that sold the correct crimps for the connector so that the two 'missing' wires could be installed. Crimp Connectors: Installing...

    Reverse connector switch wiring loom female connector

    Could you use two small spade connectors, or possibly solder flying leads directly to it and cover with heat shrink tubing? Just a thought.

    Any idea what this random connector is? 2007 1KD-FTV 120 LC4 with normal suspension.

    I think its connector BF1 (page 110/111) which is the connector for the additional wiring harness that goes to sub fuel tank sender etc. See page 258 which shows the options with and without the tank which shows the 'shorting wire' across pins 1 and 3 (it's a 5 pin connector by the way).

    Partner stove

    As long as it has a hose then you should be able to get a replacement regulator for the bottles you own. Just remember that if designed for Propane then it should only be used on propane, if designed for butane then only used on butane (Some stoves have replacement nozzles for each gas type -...

    Seized spare wheel lock

    I didn’t think that these locks required any turning of the lock or key but that the key when inserted simply engages some small pins right near the back and then the lock will just pull straight off; hence the normal put the key in and wiggle the key / lock approach “helps” engage the pins...

    Toyota Techstream on Linux?

    Not known it to get stuck before @Raj as the connector doesn’t have any clips or locking mechanism on it, it’s just a push fit. Try holding it at the sides and giving it a wiggle side to side whilst pulling it. Doubt you can do too much damage as the socket end is connected to the car, your...

    Toyota Techstream on Linux?

    Not sure why you would want to make it beep when locking, just annoying for everyone and can’t you hear the central locking engaging when setting anyway and lights flash so you have plenty of feedback that you lock it! Think most manufacturers stopped cars making a noice as its illegal in...

    Diesel drivers overcharged by 16p a litre

    @Steve Wright That’s a great price. Yesterday cheapest around me was Sainsbury’s at £1.539/l so still just shy of £110 to fill up.

    Diesel drivers overcharged by 16p a litre

    Well we all thought it, now it’s in black and white! The price of diesel fell by nearly 4p a litre in April but still remains at least 16p more expensive than it should be as it’s now 6p cheaper than petrol on the wholesale market RAC site [leaving LCC]

    Seized rear calliper, hadn’t noticed it going but by the time I did it was too late so new calliper, disks and pads both sides. At least it was a quick and easy job!

    @kanya3 Will get to looking for them as soon as I can, but work has got in the way! Sorry, but I’m convinced I stashed them somewhere, so hope you can wait a few days for me to get to look for them.

    Baffle cover fog lights

    @kanya3 I’ll take a look in the garage tomorrow as I’m sure I still have the ones I removed from my 120 when I installed some Daylight Running Lights into that location. If I can find them then you can have them.

    Thought I would treat myself

    Been looking at them for a while but not yet taken the plunge, just a little concerned about the longevity of them but I guess you always have the originals to swap back in should the need arrive.

    What does this indicator mean?

    Wired symbol there! To me it looks very similar to what is used for a warning that the catalytic converters is overheating, but I guess you don’t have a cat?

    Okay, so on my way back from recent Croatia trip the Timing Belt light came on - thought it was due round about now so no surprise there. Been watching a few YouTube’s and it looks like it can be quite fiddly to do, or is it? Question 1 is should I order belt, tensioner & water pump and then...
