Sounds like your battery is bad. A car can run on just the alternator if the demands are low. You have a fairly new car. The warranty should cover the parts and the diagnostics.

For future reference, Autozone and Oreillys will scan your system for free. You can take the battery in for testing but they will have to charge it up to load test it. The reason the jump start worked is the starter will take more Amps than the alternator can generate.

check your brake fluid it is more then likely low.You might need brakes as when they wear they take up brake fluid as the piston extends to make up for the worn pad material.

Most car seats are held in with four bolts. Two front, two rear. One at each end of the slider rails the seat moves forward and back on. You might need to slide the seat all the way forward for the rear ones and all the way back for the front ones. The bolts might be tucked under carpet or plastic trims. There will also be wires to disconnect. Once done the seat should just lift out.

Normally, the manufacturers recommend this service between 80-100K, depending upon manufacturer and model. That said, as the vehicle is 9 model years old, there is a possibility of belt deterioration from age as well as mileage. As most of these engines are interference-type engines and would be damaged severely by a broken timing belt, if you have the funds to do this now, it would not be unreasonable to do so. The water pump is probably ok, but to not replace it with the timing belt is silly, because of where it is and the effort it takes to access it later. If you choose to wait, I would not wait past 60K, just because of the factors I already mentioned.

Not surprised the Halfords boys gave up, easiest thing is pop into a Lexus or Toyota dealers on a Saturday morning when they're not too busy and just ask someone. Otherwise go back to Halfords and see if they'll sell you a manual.

I would switch to a 'Synthetic Blend' first - and stay with that for the next 3 or 4 oil changes (watching for any oil leaks to appear), before going to a full synthetic oil.
