    Default Toyota Vitz Owners/Fan Club

    The purpose of this post is to gauge the interest in forming a Toyota Vitz Owners Club in different cities of Pakistan. As we all know that Vitz has become quite popular in the last year or so. More and more people are buying it or are interested to know more about it. The purpose of the club would be to share technical / operational information regarding the car. As well as help fellow members with different issues regarding the everyday running of the car. There would be regular meets and get together as well as cruises. The criteria to join the club would be to own a Vitz and a desire to help and share information with fellow members. I myself am based in Karachi, so I can take the lead in taking off this project here. Other can do the similar thing in their respective cities. If there is enough interest, a formal charter / by-laws would be issued with club rules and regulation as well as its mission statement. The club would operate under the same rules & conditions as other international car clubs. To take this project off the ground, I believe 10 people in each city would be the minimum requirement. If anyone from Karachi is interested in being a part of this club, please email me at danyal1@hotmail.com. Pakwheelers from other cities can share their email addresses under this post if they are willing to take the lead for their respective cities. I hope to this see become a success someday and a model for other to follow. LETS MAKE IT HAPPEN GUYS!!!

    dangerous brakes!! ((

    hello guys! i feel something dangerous in my car.
    when the a/c is on, my car's brakes get hard, even on pressed brakes, it moves a lil bit, it becomes dangerous when i'm driving in bazar etc.. sometimes i have to use handbrakes to stop it, the brakes work fine on high speed.

    what should i do about it?

    ^^ This is common in vitz. As Vitz brakes are powered..when your moving at slow speeds the AC consumes most of the power. Turn off the AC when you know you'll have to brake frequntly. (I hate it when this happens)

    Yeah same thing happens to most of Vitz but according to Storm bhai this can be rectified by increasing the idling speed of engine and by removing CAT converter. Storm please shed more light on the issue.

    I have noticed shirazs's car it makes a very light roaring sound. Personally which i dnt like at all. The shud be as silent as it could be. Which makes it look decent.

    have been away for some time now. was busy with the exams. now that im over with them i can pay more attention to my vitz.

    my first query is about the speakers. i have a ps version with to speakers in the dash n to in the front doors.4 in all. but i feel they lack the quality. i do not like big sound systems just a modest one. the cd player seems good. so im only interested in changing the speakers. n while im at it im thinking of getting 2 modest speakers in the back also.pls giude me about the speaker locations. it would be really good if i could get them into the rear doors. the back board dosent seem a good place to me since its right above the cng cylinder. suggetions needed.

    secondly has anyone cleaned the MAF sensor himself. i read the diy here. where to get the special cleaner. or should i just take it to my mechanic.

    Is it on petrol? Does 2nd gear start locking at 20kmph? lets wait for some senior members, wat they prefer.

    Bro if u want the real sound quality change the head unit into mp3 one and install 2 6x9 speakers on the board at back. Change the board to the ordinary one. It'll gave u excellent sound clearity and bass. No need of amp and many other changes. Speakers go for 6930, 6940 or 6990. If u want a bit more quality then go for 715s or 718s.

    @Vitzrulez

    well before i thought i was too superstitious about my car, but then one of my friend drove it and he also seemed to face this kind of problem, even on pressed brakes, it moves at dead speed.

    you better know about our roads, people keep moving from here to there, more, cars are too close to each other, i try to keep distance but still i'm afraid of having a little clash with someone lol..

    i don't want to remove cat converter because its not doing anything bad beside brake problem, any other way to sort it?

    If you were to take my opinion, don't change the HU it'll spoil the look of the dash. I too feel tht something is lacking in the sound and thts only cuz there are no speakers at the back. Front speakers are not tht bad..keep them and get if your budget is low, go for Pioneer TS-A6992S speakers they offer good value for money. They cost around 3700rs.

    I'd suggest you to get them in the board at the back, tht'll be the perfect position for them if you want to enjoy the surround sound.

    always welcome

    @akifnaseer
    1. Please NEVER use anythign except what is advised by the manufacturer.
    2. no idea
    3. nope, but almost all info is now on this thread (too bad there is so much chatting and too many people who keep posting the same questions again and again)
    4. it is a red sign (see pics below)
    5. that is not the low coolant mark, it means the engine was cold, when the engine warms up the sign goes away.
    6. no idea

    @cool_boy_in_viper
    remove the battery terminals for 20 minutes, it should reset the car. if not, take it to toyota and get them to reset the memory.

    @raja01
    sounds to me like you have air in the system or old fluid. get it changed/bled correctly and have your brakes adjusted.

    @bmehmud
    it has to do with the fact that the idle is artificially at that piont due to the choked engine. removing the cat will reset this problem eventually.

    @shirazkhan
    glad to know it is done, let us know what fuel economy you get over a long term

    @OptimuSS
    you can clean it with a Q-tip, just be very gentle. BTW you'll probably do a better job than the mechanic, and you'll NOT damage it. these mechanics are monkey with toolboxes, don't trust them. as for sounds, just fit a set of 5 -5.5 inch speakers on the rear shelf and enjoy the "fill". DO NOT fot anythign larger as it will make the shelf sag and will eventually murder the shocks of the tailgate.

    okay guys, i have posted the DIY of removing cat here
    https://www.pakwheels.com/forumreply_az_TopicID!78490~ForumID!27~pw.html

    even if you don't have to remove the cat, do check it and let me know if there is something wrong in the procedure or i should add something to it.

    i have posted it to a separate thread so that ppl with other cars may also consult it as it should be roughly the same with other cars as well
