Am at Motorline Gatwick Toyota for the 110,000 Mile Service :shock:

They will fix the Electric Folding Passenger Mirror that won't move :!:

Have also asked them to change both Batteries in the Smart Remotes as showing signs of on the way out....

While they have the car up in the air, if the Pads need changing then they will change them over too as the New Yellowstuff is in the Boot :thumleft:

So had the 110,000 mile Service today which was covered by the Service Contract =D>

Both Batteries were replaced in the Smart Remotes within the Service Contract, which is just as well as they cost £7 each :!:

They couldn't fix the Electric Folding Passenger Mirror Housing :( , the car is now booked in to return back to the Dealership on Monday 13th May for this to be repaired and I will be given a Loan Car for the day :thumleft:

The following was checked
  • All 4 tyres = 5.5mm
  • Spare Tyre = 8mm [Not Checked]
  • Rear brake pads = 3.4mm
  • Front brake pads = 6.7mm
So the car is all OK for another 10,000 miles :twisted:

Now know what's wrong with the passenger folding mirror housing as I require a new one :(

So total cost for a new one including 10% discount on the parts and 15% discount on labour will be £347 approx :shock:



On a good point I was getting 82.9mpg today without trying :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
