Disconnecting the batt neg cable would be a good idea

I have viewed a couple of YouTube repairs (Camry) which has a removable/sub assy which clips open to get to the contacts..

My Carina II (Corona) looks like the 90's MR2 - which is an alloy casting, with what looks like a top shaft bush in it, and the switches built into/onto the casting >> anyone here [MR2 guys] know what the situation is with faulty turn stalk

..... This place is just along the river from my place, so I dropped by to collect it.

16.90 cash is the best price I can find anywhere on the Web-o-sphere !

I will confirm my opinion of the upgrade after the REAR mount is fitted

As it was the first decent/warm/dry day for a month!!







I made sure the adhesive was smeared onto the inner surfaces before forcing the bulk into the gaps.. This should give maximum grip

7 days in the warm cupboard, for full curing, and then off to the garage for fitting.

The upper & gbox mounts will be fitted sometime in the future .

My brand new Blueprint FRONT mount..



You can see here how the 3M 5200 bead runs around the extreme edge. The mount is spherical, like a doggy ball, but very lightly secured in the steel ring at its edge >> now it is more like a do-nut, there is a corresponding bead around the other side

The 3M has all now fully cured and, under my thumbnail pressure, is spongy/solid = exactly like the bushing rubber

...

Since getting this car I have had an intermittent issue with wet carpet in the passenger front footwell.
Usually after a solid wet period the carpet would be soggy and some newspaper would be needed under the thick 'PROTON' rubber mat [I once had a 1.5 MPi = dealer mats ftw ]

Webbie searching threw up windscreen seal shrinkage or sunroof drains.

After watching Americans cleaning Toyo drain pipes, with 'weed wakka' string on Utoob, I thought I'd have a look-see...

*note - need dry sunny day / likely !!

Dry sunny morning today....

Took sill flash cover and lower carpet corner trim off.

Reached into void and my finger touched the roof drain plastic pipe... Somewhat alarmingly, it rattled & waved about and I'm sure it is meant to be long enough to be positioned loosely [through the sill section/hole] into the empty space below.

TUBE IS TOO SHORT!





I inserted the above, a polypipe insert, and only pushed it 1/4 way in - very tight fit luckily - and now the extended pipe end is stuck down and fully through the factory sill hole.



Pouring water into the sunroof drain tray and it's running out of the sill bottom...



I poured water into the Drivers side (never a problem) and that came out that sill too!

Will check over the next week or so.... Rainagain Sunday

Maybe there was another section of tubing connected to that via union. Using the part number on that wiring harness I was finally able to figure out what model of car you have relative to models in Japan.

Yay! 71C, m8

Nah... Tube must have been 'marginal' 28yr ago... and has ended up dumping 80% onto the road + 20% into the footwell

...... what gives with the cabling diagrams, then?


Nice to hear from you

Further to my FRONT sunroof drains...



Above is a 4door MB, however, my rear sunroof drains out similarly = the water comes out from behind the chrome vent/trim on the rear pillar



Bit surprised >> quite a lot of Toyota saloons appear to run the plastic pipe into the rear wheelarch/under boot floor ?

My rear engine mounting has been fitted OK

The front bushing (Corolla) will not fit [but the bush could be swapped over to the old steel bracket, as it is the same dimension]

I find the car is now more solid on drive - no more shunting/rattling.

When I d-i-y the other two (L & R) mounts we will have a good grip on everything.

There is no discernible 'teeth rattling/scuttle shake' with the new mount - because the 3M is 60Shore firm, has give

Very happy with this Mod

I'll keep that in mind for when I decide to refurbish my engine mounts

I've noticed a very slight 'skreek-skreek-skreek' coming from my l/h f wheel.

My car was serviced and they seem to have overlooked my pads... They are way down and the caliper is scraping the disc edge

Doing it when Amazon drop off the bits...

##YaY##

... Today!

One of the four 12MM caliper bolts is truly stuck in the slider....

I don't have a windy/rattle gun to try to 'shock it'.

I have ordered a set of E Torx sockets to see if getting my leverage onto the 'flats' of the bolt head, rather than the corner 'points', will get it to budge.

I will report on how it goes..... Amazon locker tomorrow, so no big delay
