Inside Fender Plastic Guard

26 November 2016 - 10:48 AM

My 2011 1.8 Matrix was missing the passenger side inside front plastic guard. You guys know, the plastic thing that pretty much covers and protects the inside of the wheel well. Are they the same as the Corolla? Mines missing and the dealer wants about $120.00 for it I think. Matrixes are almost non-existing in my local junk yards so if the Corolla one fits that would be great.  Thanks  Tom

2011 Timing Belt

20 November 2016 - 08:34 AM

Hello all, I purchased a 2011 Matrix last weekend. It has the 1.8 engine and I was wondering if it had a timing belt or chain? Didn't find any mention of it in the Owners Manual so I almost assume it has a chain. I  know that in 06 Mazda started using chains in their MX-5 (miata) so I was wondering if Toyota has started doing the same? Looking forward to working with you all. Yes, I'm from the South. Anything I should know about, any quirks with this model. Thanks in advance, Tom   (aka docjones)
