    Project Moggie - Bodywork

    Making good progress @kusumsiri! Keep it up! One thing I can advise you on is to keep the wiring well away from the welding torch. While your tinkerer is cutting out external panels, there might be wires that go through small cavities that'll get torched in the process if not moved away or properly shielded.

    Persistence does pay off. Well done @varotone!

    Steering multifunction suddenly not working

    Check for a blown fuse first. If that's fine, take it to a good electrician. If you are up for it, you can do a continuity check by using a multimeter. This will tell you if the clockspring inside the steering column is faulty. To do this, you will have to remove the steering column trims near the pedals, locate the wire harness coming down from the steering, use the multimeter terminals on the common pin and each remaining pin while pressing each button momentarily on the steering wheel.

    Prius 3rd gen (30 ) 2012 ABS

    Usually refers to the modulator, but you never know what our local johnnies mean. 😄

    Prius 3rd gen (30 ) 2012 ABS

    I'd like to know the reason for opting to replace the ABS unit in the first place. What's the issue? Was a scan done and error codes revealed?
  6. In addition to lubricating, you might also want to check if you can adjust the striker on the door jamb and look all round the door for a twisted rubber moulding/weather strip, or a rubber door cushion that's come off partially.

    Any idea about migration agent charges?

    Sorry for the delay in responding. The past couple of weeks have been a bit hectic. The relevant assessing authority checks your certificates and stuff with the relevant institutions from which you obtained them. As for work experience, you will be required to talk to your employer and get a letter (letter of experience) from them (you'll have to do this for all your previous employers for up to 5 years I think). The assessing authority usually call up HR or the manager who issued the letter. So yes, there are checks being done.
  8. Should have told them that it's the factory position and Googled images of Evo Xs to prove your point. 😋

    Perodua Axia is it a good car to Buy ?

    Noises are hard to diagnose by description. It needs to be inspected in person to give an accurate answer. However, where does the noise come from? Inside or outside? Engine bay or wheels? Maybe share a video clip?
  10. After a cold start (i.e in the morning), does the engine rev upto about 1500 RPM and slowly settle down to normal as the engine warms up? If the rest of the throttle body is good, and if it is actually the IACV that is faulty, just replace the IACV. There's no benefit in replacing the entire throttle body unless the one on the car has a crack or irreparable damage.

    Bump of rear wheels

    First check the condition of the tyres. Check for previous puncture repairs that have the repair cord sticking out. Check for pebbles stuck in between treads. Check for bulges in the sidewall. Next, get the rear wheels balanced. Maybe a balancing weight has fallen off causing vibration. If none of them solve the issue, get the rear suspension checked out from a good garage.

    rpm problem

    Agree. If this started happening immediately after battery replacement, it's probably because the ECU was reset. Driving a few kms in mixed conditions (with AC on) should allow time for the ECU to re learn.
  13. Can you please explain the current law and how its different from what's explained in that discussion? Would be interesting to know.
  14. Hi, welcome to the forum. The "current scenario" is exactly what the OP of the quoted thread has asked. Old discussion or not, the law is the law. The advice given in that thread still applies. @Crosswind, since you are one of the first to respond in the thread, can you please confirm this is correct?
