Some of those blower resistors are excessively expensive hopefully you found a "loophole" purchase

I got the new resistor via Amazon locker today.


Trunking

.... found the old one under the glovebox.


As Bought


Difference


Reshaped

About 15 minutes with the hacksaw + hand file got the new one cut down to the profile of the old one. It is a sort of bakelite/cuts like chocolate with a sharp hacksawblade

Need to drill securing hole and whack it all back in......

Well impressed, I am...

Attempted to refit new/modded part but I couldnt get the 'slot in' end to fit.... resorted to Pro-Mech measures - fettled with 'extreme prejudice'



..... straight in/do up screw/ IGN 'On'... & whoosh (in 4 different flavours)



Happy man

I would have been tempted to solder the new coils into the old housing. Your method is probably better.

We have had some bad frost the last couple of days and I discovered my passenger side wiper blade was split completely away from the arm, likely frozen to glass!

My local factors were able to supply a pair for me... 5 UKpounds. QH branded so not rubbish!

Standard Jap spec. arms have 2 hole mount for wiper assemblies >> my car has the 'Euro std' mod, a little bracket screwed on to accept 'hairgrip' U type.



Normal wiper action restored.....

I'm still using the original screw on blades no adapter. I use the made in Japan refills from Toyota have not found anything better. Did that gold piece come with the adapter?

The mod. brackets were fitted when I got the car.

UK market has a vast range of suitable wiper refill/replacements

No need to visit the dealer.

Turn indicator stalk issue!

When I knock it down (right turn) around half the times I do it I get 'fizzle' sound and the green display flashes like a welding stick!!
If I knock off/down again it is fine......

If I do it with the stalk in 'hi-beam' pushed forward.... Never a problem (I do this in daylight no lights)

If I wiggle the stalk when buzzing it will stop but not every time.

So Then:-

Are these a 'simple' brass/pip contactor - spring loaded?

Is mine worn just in a particular spot (as in NOT where HiBeam position is)?

Can I strip and fix or is it a sign the contacts are getting old & grumpy

I can find breaker parts but they may be as bad.. Or worse..

Exact problem happened on my '87 I replaced the combo switch assembly. I assume the contacts went bad/worn I could have tried to repair but a replacement was cheap and easy to find.

What's your VIN or frame code BTW? Sorry if asked and answered.

My front and rear Void Rubber Engine Mounts are split & my engine rocks about.

I have found the following Steel Sleeve Bushes are pressed into the fabricated engine mounts :-

FRONT= TMB 091
REAR= TMB 097


.... like this....

Has anyone done a swap? pressed an old, split one out and replaced with a brand new one..??

They are cheaper than a whole Mounting Assembly

A forum contact, in Ireland, is parting out a Carina II and is able to send me the Rear/Drivers side/Pass side Engine Mountings.... He has looked them over and judges them in good condition/no tears

As these parts are coming to me loose... I may explore 'silicone squeezing' the Rear mount before I give it to my garage guy

I have bought a Corolla AE9x Front mount as I believe this will be compatible - we will see!

Pretty common problem across the Toyota line.
Check out 4crawler.com.
In the Tips or Easy Fixes or something like that section there are some tips on fixing the combination switch.

I have checked out that site, m8

Seen the 'Swiss file' contact dressup. I will pop my wheel and do some poking about...

As the power is 'switched earth' (always live to switch) should I disconnect my battery before poking about?

I love this car >> and no CanBus >> no ECU >> no Memory chips >> no EML >> no EGR.... Ha Ha Ha
