    ct200h premier bulb access

    so ive handed to dealer theyve told me that theyre gonna have to strip the car down for £288 and see whats happened. furthermorr theyvr charged me £192 inspection fee. This is all despite me having purchase 2 year extended warranty!! im furious!!!
  2. hi i have a premier spec however the bulbs stopped working. my mechanic open the headlamp assembly and could not find the dipped beam (two small led projectors)bulb port. he told me that the bulbs are part of the housing and that i would need to replace the whole assembly. any ideas on this? I woud find it outrageous that there is no access or ability to change these bulbs and the only resort being to buy a new headlamp.
  3. I was confused on this too as they were advertised as xenon. must be led then! would this be covered by extended warranty or not? also any idea as to how easy it is to diy using techstream?? thanks for the feedback @stormchaser @Britprius
  4. Hi fellow ct members, i have previously posted being hit and run and as a result i have had to replace the xenon headlamp. ordered on from yahoo auctions. had to swap over the hid boxes as the new one did not come with them. I noticed that the DRL's worked instantly. however the main projectors do not. my mechanic told me that they would need to be coded by an electrician because they had memory or something. i cant drive the car legally at this point due to this. anyone know what they mean by "coding". also will the headlight level need to be adjusted ? thanks

    2013 or 2014 ct

    Thanks for the heads u i was about to purchase new fog lights. each individual piece of trim is about £100 roughly on ebay. in the image it looks as though i may have to purchase a new upper trim as it looks as though the sharp edge protrude much longer. P.S would you happen to be able to provide the facebook link which you found this from please?

    2013 or 2014 ct

    Hi! ive been waiting for someone to post this. i see you have premier variant and have upgraded it to fsport facelift. i have a 2013 and im wondering how this is to be done and if you could link me to where you sourced your parts from. Are fog lights different from a 2013? How did you get a facelift with the headlight washer holes? look like the top grill chrome garnish is different in facelift? Thanks!
  10. we have an update GOOD News managed to source parts from japan using which is a middle man for japanese amazon rakuten and yahoo auctions (japanese ebay kind of). got the headlight for £40 with shipping being £80. this as used btw. Luckily it seems in japan the CT comes standard with xenons so theres planty of them. With buyee, you purchase items which are then sent buy the seller to their own warehouse and they ship it from there. BAD News- found a bumper with headlight washer holes, headlight washer full assembly attached, including lower grille and all clips, and housing of fog lights. £35!! downside is that the item was too big for standard shipping and the shipping bill came up to £930. Decided not to ship it from the warehouse after that shock! so the bumper which seemed like a bargain is at the warehouse and is destined to be destroyed. Although they did give me the option to ship it to a japanese address after sending them an emailing explaining that i would rather book a flight to japan and pick it up lmao.
  11. Great to see that youve found the blower. and yep just put in the part number its around $1600😭😭😭. gonna look for second hand parts thenlmao
  12. Thank you all for your responses. i really appreciate the help and links. everyone has told me reporting to insurance will only make myself be the one who pays out in the long term with there being a higher cost overall. Thanks again guys and be careful on the roads! i hope you manage to find the blower motor. At times like this i wish i had bought a more mainstream car.
  13. so these past couple of days in the uk it has been snowing and someone has hit into my vehicle without leaving a note. the damage is quite extensive to the near side front end. my insurance excess is £740 plus my premiums will increase and lose my ncb. ive been trying to source parts but its very hard as i have the premier model with xenons and bumper with washer inserts. Ive included some images and would like to ask if anyone knows where i can source parts from preferrably second hand or breaking.i need a n/s wing, and xenon headlamp which are the main parts. (is it possible to repair the headlamp glass/plastic as all the lights are functional and just the glass has broken) the headlamp is very hard to come across and the cheapest second hand is around£500. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you

    High mileage CT200

    Bought my 2013 ct just over a year ago with 92k on the clock. Im on 108k and no issues whatsoever. check for the steering knock although it is a cheap fix as @bobmc stated. 1 Major point though, check if the car has been put through the 100k service as it is quite a big one which requires the hybrid coolant to be changed. it usually costs £495 from dealership so its a cost you would want to have been done already.
