UK HU swappage... Thumbstick option!

I bought an adapter from Amazon...



My 'loom adapter' arrived the other day.... OF COURSE >> I CUT THE ENDS OFF

I have just to solder the tails from the AIWA radio....


Soldering didn't go too well.....
The tips all silvered but I could not get them to fuse to each other... Very Odd
Trusty 'Choccy blok' connectors to the rescue... Weyy aye!!

4 screws and fascia off... 4 screws in bracket supports HU [removed]... Toyyo HU is 'inside' the DIN Hole >> AIWA has a collar so is 'outside'/slid through the DIN Hole.
Holes in Toyyo bracket lined up, at the rear, so all is tight as a drum in there



*all sorted...



Fed the +12v/Earth tails through the dash and they are coiled loosely, just down by the clutch pedal.
This is the supply for the PlipLock controller.

Absolutely Steaminn... 'buried the needle'... Rockkinnonn YaY

Better than crimp connectors if you ask me. Maybe the solder you have is no good I have a reel that can't solder anything worth a damn the stuff melts like plastic.

Car booked in tomorrow for 4x new tyres.

Landsail LS388 195/55-15
http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Tyre/Landsail/LS388-AS.htm

... this size 55 (up from 50, originally bought on the alloys) makes the rolling of the tyre exactly as Factory 165/80-13.

Fitted 4x new spark plugs too


NGK out / NGK in..... Nice and clean burning but now benchmarked as 'all new'.

New tyres are on.....

Slightly less 'gangsta stance' evident



Found my tyres with a load of others, as delivered. Lots of other sizes of Landsail in the pile!





Not alot of clearance on the strut >> however, no worse than the others. That ET37 is key.





Good chance to scan the underside, up on a 2post!




SO then?... nice and quiet and the wheel centring hasn't moved/no squirming or anything odd.

I have always had a hankering for the 'embossed/stamped' ally Reg. Plates for this car. I have had them fitted on cars in the past.. I like 'em

Very reasonably priced, from a dealer in Glasgow! including screws/plastic colour coded cups /or 3M adhesive tapes.



The weather is generally rubbish at this time but, unseasonally balmy sunshine greeted us all on Saturday....





.... using the tacky-tape meant no drilling any messy holes... LookinnSweet

Odd Fault.... ... no, really!

I had a drivers side rear stop/tail bulb fail. Replaced it but the sidelights were coming on when the brake pedal was down....

Swapped to another bulb & now all sorted

Must be an internal short, in the bulb?... Chucked In Daa Bin!!

..... Yes, even humble Toyotas must visit to 'sip'!



Just embarasses the other 'white good/shopper trollies' with their 'auto stop-start' and 'EGR' and... well that plethora of totally useless cr*p fitted, to keep the modern motorist poor

Rockinn Onn..... Baby!

You have a very nice car man. My Canadian eyes love its European style but my Canadian brain can't tell whether it's looking at a Camry or a Corolla. Who cares? It's an old Toyota and it's beautiful

OK Guys ['n Gals!].... Technical Questions....





My power slide/tilt is going great guns. However, when I rock back the switch for 'drop tilt' and the motor pulls the 'sledge' [thinggie??] along to drop the glass >> instead of going 'Flumpp' Closed what is happening is it goes 'CluDunkk'...

My mind sees this as the glass 'slab' is perhaps a small smidginn out of alignment (with the rear of the hole) and thus 'drops >> whacks the back edge >> slamdown!'.

There must be a relationship between the 'pivot point' [for glass tilt-pin radius] and where 'pivot sledge' [carrying tilt-pin/fixed to motor cable] starts & stops.... Adjusted originally at the factory??

Is there a 'How To' on the forum....

Cheers

*Does this apply to a 1991 Carina (or Corolla...)

Thanks to all that posted! I followed the instructions from the other thread and it works correctly now.

1. Turn the ignition switch on (IG).
2. To normalize the moon roof, push and hold the moon roof switch on the “TILT UP” side until the roof fully tilts up.
3. Then release the switch.
4. Push and hold the switch on the “TILT UP” side until the moon roof tilts up, tilts down, slides open and then closes automatically.

NOTE: On the second "Push and hold the switch on the "Tilt UP" side" it took about 10-20 seconds before the intialization procedure started (tilt down, open, close)

Not exactly about your problem, not exactly for your car... but it might help.

Further to my post, above....

My 'moonroof' has no self-open/close/tilt

It continues to run the motor (groaning under overload) after fully tilt or after fully slid - open/shut - if I keep my finger on the button.

No 'self learning' is possible so... ANYONE?? ... is there a screwlock adjustment on the cable 'sled' to adjust exact stop!!


Cheers

Hmm... found this >>

https://www.yotatech.com/attachments...iteup-adju.pdf

Seems to cover my current difficulties

Nice warm day here today so I slathered a light grease into/onto/under/over all the working mech of the roof.
It was quite dry & dusty around the drive wires/slot guides and I'm sure the mech has 'eased' now it has been run back and forth a dozen times.

I still have the 'cull-umpp' sound as I drop the tilt... Adjustment Beckons
