So, got her back from service and the clips holding the engine cover/air box were broken. This was reported and dealer said they will sort it out when the car goes back to get tint sorted (scratches) and arm rest replaced (broken clip).

Unfortunately, before she went back in, the loose engine cover caused the oil filler neck to break off...WTF! :shock: I only noticed because the idle was erratic/lumpy which caused me to stop and have a look under the bonnet.

Hoping I haven't got myself a lemon here...

So the clip of the arm rest was broken...
Image
McCarthy was kind enough to get me a new arm rest cover with clip.
Image
They offered to fit it but I said hell no...lest they f@#k anything else up.

Now I just need to fit the thing...I think it will turn out to be quite a mission.

Those things are very prone to breaking!

and you have to buy the entire armrest lid to get a clip. :evil: :evil: :evil:

That's what I have read...you can get them on ebay for a bit less than dealer prices though so for those who need them, go ebay.

Armrest fitted...super easy.

When she came back from Toyota last, the one touch up/down windows on the driver side was not working and the windows could not be opened or closed via the key fob. In order to fix this, Open the window and hold for 6 seconds after it is all the way open and then close the window and hold it for 6 seconds. repeat this 3 times and all functionality is resumed.
