    Shock absorber for aqua

    guys this is a noob question. i want to change rear shocks of my allion 260 2008. i intend to buy it from T**S Agencies. if i tell the model, would they be able to provide me the suitable shocks? or do i need to provide them with any other technical details? I like to keep the cushion ride the allion provides. (sometimes refers as a boring ride :-D). what range should i select to keep the car with minimal intact of the comfort? KYB EXCEL-G?

    360 Bird's eye camera calibration

    You can draw lines on the ground or use a thread to mark out two frames. One close to the car perimeter and the second around half meter away from the first one. (More apart these two, the more accuracy you get.) You can use the overlapping points to calibrate the system. Mind if i ask you where did you get the system fixed? They should be competent enough to do it for you the proper way.
  3. Sound when running or breaking? If it is a rattling sound when driving on rough roads shocks might be on the way out.

    Grace 2015 or Axio 2015 or Premio 2012 ?

    I also recommend you to buy the Toyota from the list. Look for a well maintained car with records. (Preferably service records and import documents as well). Also with no makabass modifications. A basic car is better than one with bells and whistles fitted in srilanka, even for the same price. Look for a specimen with one owner only. It is gonna be a real difficult to find such a vehicle. Also it wont be cheap. (In my case i bought a 2008 allion 2 years ago for more than 1.5 laks above the market price. Made peace with that decision given that i will be using it for the next 6 or 8 years.) It wont have the latest tech but will serve you reliably to get from point a to point b. It is a simple, moderate comfortable vehicle with average fuel economy and space. Typical Toyota feel is there and it is good for long drives. Some guys may not like it much. I bought the car at 80k and added nearly 20k. So far i have done only the routine service, rear shock replacement and one hid bulb replacement. Look out for ac and cvt issues. They are the weakest points in allions and premios. And most jdm cars. Dont buy it for the market value or fuel economy. I have seen the trend where allions and premios loose value now. (All cars depreciate anyway) And if you buy such a car please please maintain it properly. Dont take shortcuts. (Dont take it to other agents like the guy in another thread did 😆😆.) It will be good and cheaper for you in the long run. Toyota 161 axio is also a good choice. but you will loose some space. again the key factor is maintenance.

    Allion 260 AC compressor repairing

    Check the above thread. It has a place recommended by an AL member Ac compressor solenoid valve can be changed but there is a good chance that all internals are worn out as well. So it might be a waste of money.

    Allion 260 AC compressor repairing

    I've seen lot of cases where ac compressors were replaced. But i don't know if it is repairable. (or cost effective) TL most certainly dont undertake repairs. They just replace with orginal new parts.

    Toyota Allion 2009 NZT260 80K service advice

    If you dont know the situation of the cvt oil, better do it now and start a record. I changed my cvt oil from TL. And yes they do full service including magnets and oil pan. You should instruct them specifically to do that and also they add some extra cost. Costs are higher now. I did this on September 2017

    Buy car which have low fuel consumption

    Am i the only one seeing a bit of marketing here? Seems like its the newest trend in AL. 😆😆
  9. When start/stop button is pressed without brakes, car can be put to "ACC" and "ON" mode. May be the OP is referring to that. Assuming Aqua is similar to allion

    That means even agent service records cannot be trusted? Damn...

    Toyota Premio 2007 NZT260 issues with air conditioner

    Nope. they dont dismantle. just checked the whole A/C system running at full capacity. (they put it on the lowest temperature and went through their checklist) replaced the cabin filter at that time. thats all.

    Toyota Premio 2007 NZT260 issues with air conditioner

    you can go to TL for an extra advise. but dont trust them too much either. once TL guys in wattala told me that pretty soon i would have to replace the compressor as it is failing. i was honestly surprised at that point because i didn't feel any loss in A/C (still dont after 10000km.) when i serviced again from kandy TL they told me replacement is not necessary yet. (i asked them specifically to check the A/C system) Seems like toyota wattala guys over stated the facts.

    Toyota Premio 2007 NZT260 issues with air conditioner

    AC problems in 260s axios and 141s are very common. First of all it is a good choice to make sure there are no leaks in the ac system and the refrigerant level is sufficient. (since you said it was repaired) Go through this topic for additional info. If it absolutely comes to replacing the compressor go through this topic.
