    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!!!

    Dudes,

    Just had my vitz 2002's fan belt changed. the older one was pretty F'd up, had gone all hard (not necessarily a good thing for all leather stuff) lol.

    One serious problem is that I couldnt find one 100 Amperes main fuse (the ones they screw into that tiny fuse box attached to bettery terminal). One mechanic had put in a wire to replace the fuse, its a huge risk. Any idea where i can get a main fuse? The original main fuse was in two pieces when i got my car.
    There is one thing I would break up over and that is if she caught me with another woman. I wouldn't stand for that!

    Yet another problem, even serious!

    Yara back in Oct '06 when i got my car, i was really tired of the low ground clearance. And being amongst the wisest of the wise, i had "packing" stuffed into the shock springs! which not only makes squeaking noises but surely has twisted the aerodynamics 180 degrees. Is there any decent way of undoing the wise act and getting a better ground clearance? I heard somebody saying something about adjusted suspension or something.

    dude I have absolutely no idea, but it surely has screwed up the aerodynamics. Plus, I have heard that the damage to the springs is irreversible, how true is that?

    @Storm.

    LOL sweet lord! what on earth are you trying to pull out of your poor lil vitz?

    Na dra yaar. maine abhi ja k niklwa deni hay packing. Waise if u have seen how packing is placed, i dont c any reason for loosing aerodynamics or damage to springs. A good mechanic in cordination with good blacksmith can do the job well. Even without packing, springs are placed between two bases. there is a rubber cup placed between spring and the bases. wat u do in packing is that u place a solid piece of silver between rubber cup and bases. what i think is if rubber can bear the rubs against the bases, y cant with packing??? As far as aerodynamics are concerned, the packing size really needs attention. front packing is placed horizontally, while rear packing has an angle of some 20-30 degrees. thats y rear packing size a bit larger than the front one, so that even after packing, car is not disbalanced.
    @Storm
    I think u have loast ur 5Rps coin and looking for that . waise kapray utaar k to blaat kaar he kia jata hay, wat r u upto man???

    vitz interior was stripped to find a 5Rs coin

    LOL! actually the carpet got dirty (kid dropped cola in it) so i stripped it and gave it a thorough cleaning. also did a few improvments to the chassis and resealed the rubber caps in the floor (just in case).

    next step is to get the brakes bled and then the engin needs a full once over, hopefully it'll rev better after i'm done

    30+K for a Vitz windscreen :O Are u sure? The windscreen should be one of the usual spare parts available of the vitz like lights, bumpers etc. So I doubt it would be that expensive.

    Won't any other car's windscreen fit?

    Check with alta maybe he can help you out. I'm sure the prices of the spares must be cheaper now with so many vitz available.

    Salams everyone,

    Had couple of questions.

    I have recently moved to isb from khi (will look forward to meeting the isb vitz club once i get settled down). Now the plan was to send my vitz via one of the many "car transporters" available all the way from khi to isb. But here's what 2 guys have told me (who already trucked their cars from khi to isb):

    First, the car has started making a lot of noises... as if things have gotten loose. The bearings in the wheels needed to be replaced and alignment was messed up! Second, there was just too much dust outside as well as inside the car - in places where it was too difficult to clean!! Overall, their cars seem to have gotten 10-15 years older during the 3-4 days of trucking and they're regretting it badly!!

    So what do you guys suggest? Is there a proper trucking company which can get the car in same condition to isb?

    And noticed one problem only after it had rained in khi. The car started fine, but won't pick up speed when the pedal was pressed. After about 5-7 minutes or when I converted to cng, it was fine. Any idea? This happened twice, both times after it had rained and the whether was cool and wet. If this is a major thing, then will it also give problems in isb as it rains much often here!!

    It's a vitz 99. Overall, the car's great... great fuel consumption too. Got cng installed last month and it's working pretty good too. Befor installing cng, it touched 163km/h (with 5 ppl and some luggage) on super highway and then I had to slow down. Am not a fan of speeding but just wanted to check how much it could do. Got caught at 130km/h and got fined for that! Then onwards I didn't cross 120!
