It was fine until I replaced the alternator a month or so ago, which required removing the top radiator hose to get the thermo fans out. It's dumped a bit of fluid 3 times now, but only when the no-pics drives it of course... I was worried there was some special bleeding process I missed once there was a mention of cracking bleed nipples in the head, but nope, it's self bleeding apparently.
    Had a similar issue with my VZ 6L and sorted it by bleeding it correctly - similar method to andy_wk but I'd also leave a decent size funnel in the filler neck (or bottle with the ass cut off would work) to raise the level of the fluid above the engine.
    Supposed to be self bleeding....but I'm sceptical.

      So I'm stuck with a shit windscreen?
      Is it crazy how saying sentences backwards creates backwards sentences saying how crazy it is?

        Wouldn't it be the same as a normal corolla?

          Re gloves- buy these. They don't swell anywhere near as much and the shit black ones when you get solvent on them or tear as soon as you grab something too tight.

            I'm going to keep that in mind, ta ... I only have the ones I have because they were on sale, I don't use them that often for all the reasons you've noted - unless you use gloves so thick you can't feel a thing, they tear as soon as you try to spin a nut (the fastener variety - unsure about surgery) by hand.
            Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

              What’s the go with asbestos gaskets? I used to buy gasket sets for my fiats from America, just bought a set from an Aus distributor that have an asbestos sticker on the box. Same brand, same set. I would have thought you wouldn’t be able to get them into the country?

                Umm, it's been banned in Australia for sale or import since 2003. So whoever sold it to you was breaking the law.

                  That’s what I would have thought

                    What adhesive do I need to glue the mirror glass back into an old pair of Holden GTS mirrors? Pressed steel disc in the mirror housing that the glass goes on to. Is there a suitable sikaflex type adhesive?

                      Need to do some work on my ute soon and removal of the tray would make things a little easier for me but knowing me it's not going to be a job that I'll complete over a weekend.

                      So was just wondering if it is legal to drive without a tray as long as tail shaft has a guard, tyres have mud guards and number plate and tail lights are present?

                        I know when we install mirrors onto tiles in bathrooms we use a mirror specific silicon from bunnings. 'Apparently' normal silicone can 'damage' the mirror backing. Draw a circle and it ain't coming out in a hurry

                          I have the same issue. I think this stuff will be too much overkill though.

                            Double sided tape for the mirror, proper 3m stuff.

                                The new cap is on and no issues so far on the WK. I also realised when I fitted it that the caps have the ratchet internals so you can't overtighten them. So I probably didn't tighten the old one quite enough which may have also had an impact. I figured that since it happened less than a week after I did something that involved removing the top radiator hose that I was probably to blame
