Toyota Avensis Wing Mirror

24 April 2013 - 12:45 PM


I know this is not a ford but hope someone might be able to help

I am trying to get a wing mirror assembly for my father in

laws Toyota Avensis. I have the registration number but sadly it is an 03 plate
so could be one of tow types. Doe anyone know how I can find out which one I will
need. Also the sites I have look at for the mirrors online mentions 3 or 5 pin
connections. I don’t know which he has but I do know it isn’t a heated mirror. Does
anyone know if this is a 3 or 5 pin connector.


Any help would be great.




Ford Focus Mk1 Over Reving Intermittent Problem

16 April 2013 - 01:00 PM



I have a MK1 ford focus with a slight issue. Sometimes the accelerator
goes crazy. It has only happened about three times once about a year ago and twice
in the last month. While driving along it starts to accelerate without my foot
on the pedal. When I put the clutch down it revs as if I have my food on the accelerator
up tot about 4-5k. It happens for a little bit a stays even if the car is
turned on and off but then goes after a little bit. As it is an intermittent
fault it is hard to know if I have found the true problem. The cable is fine
and the think the TPS sensor is fine as I took that out and put a multi meter across
it and it seems ok. I have read it might be the 02 sensor. But I obviously don’t
want to replace things needlessly

Any help would be great

1.4 Or 1.25 Fiesta?

02 May 2012 - 07:03 PM

I am looking for a car for my wife a small run about. So after talking with a friend he recommended the 1.25 fiesta 5dr. As it turned out these are like hens teeth around me at my price bracket. My friend was told by another friend to stay away from the 1.4 as parts are a murder to get and a lot more expensive. Have other people found this?

Ford Fiesta Question

26 April 2012 - 06:32 PM

I think I have convinced my wife that a petrol car is ok and think the 1.25lt fiesta will be a good one. The issue she had when driving my focus is she felt the pedals where too high as she is quite a small lady and cant rest her heel on the floor. Can you lower car pedals so she can rest her heal on the floor and still work the pedalsor get longer pedal fitted?
