Added brownie points kumbaga. Hehe... Pero minsan din kasi marami lang talagang sine-service yung casa at posibleng kulang sa tao kaya nade-delay
    Yun nga kinaiinis ko kasi bakit naman 8 to 9 hours aabutin (7 am to 3 or 4 pm ang estimate) Generous na 2 hrs for PMS plus 2 hrs to fix the rattle. Let's say 1 hour to check the steering. Total of 5 hrs lang yun. Considering na weekday pa tomorrow.

Buti okay naman ang kinalabasan; hindi masyadong malayo sa kulay niya talaga. Kung black o white (not the pearly one) yung Altis mo, hindi naman siguro masyadong mahahalata yung touch-up.
    Medium Silver din car ko Naghahanap ako yung parang pentel pen ba yun? I need to dab a little lang kasi maliit lang naman yung tuklap.

    FD kasi ang first choice ko

    It also took some time before I fell in love with my big body corolla. I guess I really am a Toyota fan

    May na experience ba kayo na whistling sound when you go over 110 kph?

    Question lang po, which kind of oil yung pinalagay ninyo (synthetic or mineral), and saang casa po kayo nagpagawa? Mukhang happy kasi kayo so the service must have been really good. Hehehe

    It took them 7.5 hrs to finish the job (PMS and fix rattle). Mas mabilis ata sa ibang casa. They put 5W40 oil at P615 per bottle. Fully Synthetic ba yun? Basta sabi ko wag yung ordinary oil ang ilagay para sigurado kasi takot ako sa sludge issue. Total cost of the 5k PMS = P3000.

    Hindi nakita yung pag tanggal ng rattle kasi they don't allow it daw. Change oil lang daw pwede panoorin pero I left the car na rin kasi I brought it there 9 am tapos hapon na daw matatapos. Tingin ko hindi buong dash kasi yung laman ng dash ko hindi nagalaw. Wala ako narinig na rattle pauwi pero observe ko pa next time.

    You can actually DIY your rattle:
    1. Gently pull down the weather strip


    2. Insert some foam or thin rubber strips in between the plastics and the metal frame of the car. Do this from the headliner all the way down to where the A pillar meets the dash.




    3. Then push back the weather strip firmly.

    4. Test drive... and repeat if necessary

    I fixed my own A-pillar rattle with these steps. Took me under an hour. The casa is asking me to leave my car the whole day with them to fix this rattle which I have no time to do, so I did some research and fixed it myself . However, I believe the casa would detach the entire A-pillar and not just insinuate foam in between. Rattle will be solved either way.

    I also have some tips in solving the B-pillar/ seatbelt mount rattle and the brake booster/pedal rattle (which I think a lot of us have but don't realize it).

    Wow Sir

    Do you have tips for the whistling din when the car goes over 110 kph?
