    Boot won't open - Getting fed up with owning this car

    It's OK, I get pangs of the same feeling. Is yours a Primo? In the states there is a button in the boot that stops the boot release from working (look at vids online). I don't believe it's on UK cars but maybe the primo. Also, is there a manual key release?
  3. Can you not get to the boot lock and unlock it to carry out a proper investigation by dropping the back seats? Had a similar problem with a Toyota rental in New Zealand and I managed to open by dropping back seats only to discover that you had to depress the boot release button on the fob for about 3 seconds to open the boot, never used the fob to open the boot on the 86 so not sure if that is the same.

    Functional splitters/diffusers

    Deacon: is your car lowered? At one point i considered Velox non-agressive diffuser, but from your photo it seems that ground clearance is way way below what would seem acceptable for me dual-using car 😕
  5. Yeah sorry getting you confused with someone else. It's a Toyota recall, they have to fit OEM parts. Do what you want I guess.
  6. A years warranty for the recall and a years warranty anyway on any parts fitted. Though obviously his boot problem isn't under warranty, though they can at least have a look and see what is going on and give a cost to fix.
  7. The dealer has to give at least three months warranty ....

    I think I saw you on the A12 on Friday alittle before mid day. Caught a glimpse. I was headed towards Colchester and you was in other direction? Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk

    I picked up a Schroth Asm 3 harness for a bargain price from Amazon a couple of days ago and it arrived today. Plan is to try and get it fitted ahead of Mondays trackday at Bedford and see what difference it makes compared to the CG Lock I currently use.

    This is the non aggressive rear diffuser. Tegiwa is where me and @will300 had them from but I'm not sure they are importing the Verus stuff anymore

    Cool, have you got any photos of the diffuser? Also, who’s the UK distributor for Verus?

    Recommendations on brake pads?

    They dont have Cosworth stickers on them or EBC stickers. The Cosworth logo’s are printed/etched straight onto the metal. I’ve nothing but good words to say about the quality of the Cosworth products. I have their Stage 1.2 NA tune with their sump baffle and their brake pads. All the parts I’ve come into contact with look/feel first rate. I have a stack of their air filters ready for a lifetime of services. I just wish they did more parts for the 86!
  14. Thanks, I'll speak to this guy who is going to call me about the recall tomorrow. He might not know, but I can ask if he can take a look, although not sure how he can take a look, you can't open it to look at it 🤣
  15. No I don't have a TRD. You said that last time. I wish I did lol. Well sorry but I don't trust any garage. Any garage would find a way to save money and parts that you can't physically see like oil and the spark plugs (unless you want to go through the hassle of checking it), they can quite easily put cheap stuff in. That's my opinion anyway. Won't go into long details but have had bad experiences of every single garage I have been to.
  16. He's got a TRD, so it is 2013, built in 2012 or early 2013, so it will definitely fall within the recall range.
  17. You can still find out the issue and/or then find out the cost to fix. It could be cheap... Try contacting breakers and see if any have the locking mechanism and switch it over? No idea if there's anything in the locking mechanism that's tied to the car though...
  18. It's a Toyota dealer they will use genuine parts and OEM oil. I'm not sure where you get this notion that they will put cheap parts in? One a week is what most dealers are doing, it's quite enough with the other service work they have to do.

    Test Drives Unlimited: btw, have you considered two-piece rotors? (IIRC DBA offers such for stock brakes too), such won't be a bit better wearables cost wise?
  20. It's not in warranty.

    Here's an idea have you thought about taking the car back to the Dealership for them to try fixing the issue for you?! Sent from my ASUS_A001 using Tapatalk

  23. Tried someone pushing down on boot while I hold boot button inside, doesn't work. Any other ideas? Crash it and claim it on insurance maybe?
  24. Yes that's what I did and that's when they said they would send me a letter for when it's ready. Edit: I have just called my local Toyota branch, the guy that has been doing them is not in today and will call me tomorrow. The lady said on the phone that they need it for a week. I asked if they could change spark plugs at same time, she said yes they do that full service anyway. I asked is that all free of charge, and she said yes. Although I never trust them with the cheap oil they put in, they probably put some cheap spark plugs in and I will have no way of knowing. I also asked if he has done many before, she said yes he has done quite a few over the past few weeks. He can only do one a week. So that all adds up to what others have been saying on here.

    Functional splitters/diffusers

    I can't really help as mines a Verus splitter & diffuser, that was order via a UK distributor so I didn't have to deal with shipping, import tax, etc. However I will say, you won't get the benefit of a diffuser without a splitter.
