  1. Hello Everyone I have a 2007 corolla 141. My service was due next month and I went for the full service today. I did my service from a service station that I have done twice before. Then today afternoon (around 5pm) I went there to take back my car home after they said service is completed. I started my car to reverse and suddenly there was some tightness with my steering wheel. I Restart the car and tried to reverse again . Same tightness appeared in the steering wheel again. Then I complained to the service station people about the issue. They told me to take the car to the 150m away Gurage and they called them I will come. So I drove my vehicle there with very difficulty because steering wheel was very tight and i couldn't drive it smoothly with cross roads. While I just came to the Gurage location my dash board indicators became blinking and My radio switched off automatically. Just after I drove my car inside the Gurage car automatically stopped and didn't start gain. Then technician came and did a Jump start. I was there when he check the issue and one terminal of my car battery was moving/loose. He did a jump start after tightening it and checked the alternator voltage. It indicated only 7V and he told me it should be 12V. Car battery was not charging by the alternator. He told me he will have to check the alternator tomorrow morning as all these incidents were happened and it was 7pm. He gave me indication that it may be alternator has gone (may be burnt what he meant I think) or may be a diode or something can be and will have to check tomorrow (12th) . Please help me out guys what may be causing this ? Will I have to replace the alternator, If so how much will it cost ? Is it available in Matara area ? Will I able to repair this tomorrow because its new year after
  2. Thanks all. finally I also joined SLIC. My premium was 62k for 2m valuation. I had some claims and it was fast and easy. But now I have got my 2nd year premium as 72k. I think thats because of the claims I took. But when I searched the marked coorp gave me a quotation for 42k. I am now thinking of changing to coop. Please anyone have bad experience with coorp ??
  3. Noted and thanks sorry for the late response
  4. Thank you for the reply is it cost that much
  5. Dear All My Corolla 141 Front Windscreen was cracked due to a small accident. There is a hairline crack for around 1m length. I am looking for a place to replace it. I found from the forums about Samarasinghe Windscreen house. I don't have experience with it so can you guys give me your past experiences about that shop. Also I don't know what to look when replacing a front windscreen in the replacing one. I have heard about tinted and non tinted glass. Also about Original glass and copies. Also I have heard 3 layers glass which I don't have any idea. Can you please provide some technical info about Front windscreens. What should be the best glass to be selected Thanks
  6. Thank you very much. Very detailed explanation
  7. Hi All I have a Corolla 141 car. I recently brought it. I do not have proper knowledge in car maintenance. I check my cars coolant levels, water level and engine oil often as i can. Is there any more items that I should be checking regularly? Further please let me know how often should I service the Car. Should I consider the mileage as priority or the time period 6 months ? . I know cars should be services earliest as possible. But we need to look the economical side as well. Thats why I asked. Also is TOYOTA service station is recommended or can I use other service stations as well from your experience? Please let me know any other better places Guys please help me with the above. Thanks

  11. The technician called it as the Radiator cap. It was plastic piece and costed around 1800 lkr. It was replaced . Now the issue is ok.
