    Engine Replacement

    Dear all, I had to replace the engine of my car Fb13 with a similar type of engine since the old engine was worn out. But i was unable to inform to RMV. I called the RMV, they told me that i need to get an approval from them first, and then after the engine replacement, the car must be examined by an examiner in RMV Verahera. There are some modifications done to my car such as changing the original tyre size (previous owner) and a performance exhaust (beat barrel). Some of my friends told me that if there are such modifications, some problems will occur at the RMV examinations. Since this is my first time that i am going to do such a procedure, please be kind enough to share your ideas, experiences with me. I am going to sell the car. i want to make all legal matters clear before selling it, Thanks.

    Fb 15

    I heard that FB15 YOM 1999 and upto early 2000 came with this engine cover. Late 2000 and 2001 models came with no covers mounted top of the engines. In my car, there is no Neo cover and no sockets to mount it even. I have seen several cars in this way. If the car is in good condition and @ a reasonable price, buy it. It is hard to find a good car these days. cheers samanl

    Rattling Noise In Starlet

    It may be a problem of the steering column. In my FB13 i had that kind of a problem and got solved after fixing a new column.

    Under Bonnet Heat Shield

    agreed. I used mcfoil and attached it to the bonnet using plastic clips. never had to drill the bonnet. These clips were very nice and gave a good finish. did it by my self. This foil reduces the heat of the bonnet more than 50 %. I did this for my previous FB13 which already run by gas. ( Generally got heated than when driven by petrol).
