    How to remove 4A-FE condenser fan?

    Hi everybody, how are u guys doing? Been a while since the last time i was here. XD As per title, do I really need to take out the condenser to replace the fan? I took out the two plastic studs and one screw at the bumper bracket but the fan doesnt have the space to slide out. Also, any...

    AE111 blacktop absorbers & local SEG absorbers

    Erm soo I got myself a set of used adjustables. It was a good bargain and I got tempted after all the talk on OEM. Bwahahahaha I have a question: The height of the coil is slightly longer (not higher but more travel i suppose) on one side of both front and rear. It's 5mm based on my good eye...

    Career change - noob mechanic

    Yea, that's right. Also thinking about it, if got partner, i think in one or more ways, one of the boss have to take charge/be the dominant one but still make decisions together. If both are dominant, i think it's a timebomb. :P I have this dream to invest in workshop and spend time there...

    Proton Wira equipped wit Promote bumper (Photo Needed)

    To be more accurate I think what he meant was is there anybody who doesnt have a Wira to buy a Wira just so they can go mod the car together. :D I might be wrong but just saying. Cheers

    AE111 blacktop absorbers & local SEG absorbers

    yup, i'm aware of the risks. I really get your point but spending 10k on suspension?? I'm WAY below your league already bro lol I was comparing the price for these with originals where a set of rear absorbers with top mounts could easily be around RM550-600 while half cuts is about RM100 for...

    AE111 blacktop absorbers & local SEG absorbers

    Hey guys, I just have a quick question -- are the AE111 blacktop shock absorbers with its springs/coils exactly the same as those in local AE111? I'm asking because my rear absorbers together with the top mounts are due for replacement and I'm thinking of trying out halfcut sets. My...

    DIY Myvi : Driver Engine mounting.

    They have Sumitomo brand for Kelisa mounting. RM180 per set with 1 year warranty. Worth checking if Myvi has the same. Would like to do this for wifey's Kelisa. I would use a jack stand though. That seems pretty scary to stick your head under the car. :P

    DIY Joey Mod aka smoke headlights..

    If that's the reason, I should attempt to do this. :P It's because I just want to have like a border sort of thing instead of a whole black reflector. Will experiment on my old set nonetheless. :biggrin: I'm also worried that I'll bust my wife's hair dryer LOL. Will probably leave it under the...

    DIY Joey Mod aka smoke headlights..

    I know it's an old thread but I have a question -- I went to a shop that do this for a fee and the guy said he can do it for the headlights but not the signal lamps. These are lamps of a Corolla AE111 btw. Perhaps you guys can shed some light on why he cannot do it on the signal lamps? Do they...

    Goodyear F1 Directional 5 vs Michelin Pilot Sport 3

    That's what i thought also. Any shops to recommend for those D5s in PJ? Somehow I still prefer GY but would go for 55 ones. :P

    Goodyear F1 Directional 5 vs Michelin Pilot Sport 3

    I was quoted RM235 for D5 and RM265 for PS3 for the 195/50/15 size. That's from a GY dealer. Weird thing is PS3 got ready stock, D5 have to put deposit and come back next day. :P
  20. F

    Goodyear F1 Directional 5 vs Michelin Pilot Sport 3

    I'm going for F1 D5 as well. One question though -- on GY website, the size for 15" is 195/50/15 but ZTH price list have 195/55/15 on it. Both sizes available?

    Toyota rush

    Civic ES NVH is bad?? I'm starting to wonder if your car has problems such as worn out bearings or bad tyres. Seriously, if you think the ES's NVH is bad, you should probably be looking at the latest civic onwards, in terms of category. Since this is the Toyota section, I'm suggesting Toyota...

    Erm civic from which year? Anyway, if 4 or even 5 of you, personally i'd stick with a sedan. 6 and I would change to MPV. But that's me. :)

    Toyota rush

    Toyota Rush - price range 86k to 95k Here's what I think on the three aspects you were asking about. One of my family member has this car: 1. Space - yes, you can carry 7 people but the third row, as usual, is only suitable for kids. Very little bootspace if the third row is utilised. 2. Fuel...

    Car Paint

    Well, I don't know if the price quoted includes clear coat but will ask further. Let's hope it's Glasurit as well. Haha.. I'm a bit anal about bodywork and paint jobs coz hell, we look at it everyday. And yea, makes sense. Need a good clear coat to protect that awesome custom colour. :)
  28. F

    Car Paint

    LOL But actually I am seriously considering Glasurit if budget allows. :P Any places that you can recommend around Klang Valley? A shop in USJ quoted RM3K for a glasurit metallic colour - exterior only. Based on my google findings, DuPont seems to be quite good. PPG is the next best thing if...

    Car Paint

    Hi, Thought I need not open a new thread to ask this question: I was googling about for some colours to repaint my car and came across some awesome colours which they say are 5-layer paints. Does it mean that the paint should have 5 coats before the clear coat is applied to get the desired...

    Looking for a place to custom fit AE111 GT rear bumper to local AE111

    Mine is 96 model same as yours bro. I still don't know which skirt I'll use - GT or standard. I want to wait until I have the sprinter lips. (Not yet pick up from our lobang king. Sorry Ivan! LOL) I probably won't do the same for my rear bumper. I think that involves more work than what i have...

    Whoa I cannot see any indication that it was cut in that photo. It's the part in the red box in the attached photo. You have to recommend me the mech. :P Is that a GT skirt btw? I'm still undecided whether to use the GT skirt or the standard skirt to go with the Sprinter lips.

    Silicone Wipers vs Rubber Wipers - Which is better? (Open discussion)

    My experience: Rubber wipers, bosch brand hardened and cracked after 3 months. Wipe fine when it was new. But slowly become bad after 1 month. Silicone wipers, some japanese brand, which I dont understand, 1.5 years and plastic clip gave way first. The silicone is still soft and no tears or...

    Looking for a place to custom fit AE111 GT rear bumper to local AE111

    It had to be cut near the mudguard am i right? The rest are only customised brackets I think. That's probably due to cement and paintwork quality but it lasted for years which is good enough for me. :) My current concern is the customised brackets for the bumper and the cutting part. Mind...

    Looking for a place to custom fit AE111 GT rear bumper to local AE111

    Silicone can take our rain and sun very well but I'm not so sure about it's holding power. Not so sure if we can put paint over it as well. For the lips, I'm thinking of using 10mm bolts and nuts, and probably have 6 to 8 across the under side. The top side will have to be riveted I guess.

    my ae101 problem

    I had this problem before after changing the bushes and it turns out a couple of screws were loose. The car should handle like new (well, almost) if you had change all those bushes. I think brand 555 is a decent brand. My previous car, an LE had 555 all over it and it served me well. Where...

    4AFE alternator wire position

    Update: I replaced the ALT 100A fuse today as it was available off the shelf. To noob DIY-er out there (like me lol), that fuse, along with two others in the same section are tied with a 8mm and 10mm hex screws. You need to take the bottom cover of the fuse box out to get to there. Try taking...

    Automated Enforcement System (AES) - Covering Our Roads Very Soon!

    Exactly. It's supposed to be a preventive measure rather than punishment. I thought AES is supposed to be fixed at certain locations like you see on highways in the UK. They are placed at accident-prone areas and cars will slow down to prevent accidents. However, I'm confused. It says...

    They cost RM280 but they will need to order them -- just go to any spare parts shops or go to STC Auto Parts as they are one of the Toyota parts authorised dealer.

    ECU repair? How much?

    LOL sorry. I meant i'm getting wap air coming out when it's on idle. Not mist per se. I thought the ignition timing is spot-on if that happens? Timing was set to stock as per manual last time I service. I'll take a look at the fuel system then. If it persists, ECU -- will come to you. Thanks bro.
