  1. Today
  2. You could potentially look into something similar to this:
  3. As you can see, aftermarket has varying levels of quality. OEM body panels almost always fit better.
  4. Thanks fo the repies. Ive had a look at that bracing on the firewall/strut towers, definitely looks like it adds something to the structural integrity. So i guess it's rear swaybar upgrade and ralliart enkei's for now, and coilovers in ~100,000km when the shocks are shot.
  5. Looks like you have the early 2007 Kluger with the 3.3 litre 3MZ-FE V6 engine with the 5 speed U151F transmission. http://australiancar.reviews/reviews.php#!content=review&make=Toyota&model=Kluger&gen=903 http://share.qclt.com/丰田Toyota RAV4 Repair Manual/U151F Automatic Transaxle/Automatic Transaxle System/028006.pdf http://etereman.com/blog/toyota-transmission-2/tips-for-treating-problems-with-the-toyota-u151f-transmission
  6. Replacement rear windscreen fitted this morning. Fitter told me that it has been their busiest Summer for many years due to the hot weather. It was mainly front windscreens, as expected. Things are slowing down, only had 4 jobs today instead of the usual 6-7, includes 2 chip repair jobs. Previous insurer included nil excess for windscreen replacement so will have to reconsider that factor when time to renew.
  7. My aurion has just done 100,000ks, always been serviced by Toyota, warranty ended December 2016. Now the water pump has failed as well as the tensioner thingo. Got a quote from Toyota dealer for $2,000. I have requested an out of warranty claim be submitted by the dealer. See how we go. Then probably through consumer law channels. Seems as though there is an issue with water pumps in these engines.
  8. Yesterday
  9. I already have mine. Received it a week ago. Koba in Shadow Platinum with Black roof. My Dealer warned me back in November when I first showed interest that there would be a waiting list. I signed a contract back then dependent on Price, a test drive and me actually liking the car. This allowed them to have the car here in the first batch that arrived. Loving the car. Great to drive. Getting some looks in public as well.
  10. Since having my 2001diesel hilux fuel pump destroyed with bad fuel I now run a 30 micron Stanadyne pre filter. Then a Ryco Z252X. I do my engine oil and filter every 5000 km and change the Ryco secondary fuel filter every 10000 km and the Pre filter every 20000 km am I on the right track?? Thanks for your help.
  11. Welcome to the forum KAA
  12. Last week
  13. Yes.
  14. No some Russian dude from US. however I did use scanguageii to check transmission temperature, dont need to fiddle with the wires. watch his second video on the Lexus he did, shows how he checks the TFT (Tranmission fluid temperature). Actually I just completed the job today, needed 7 quarts of oil to do 2 x (DRAIN & FILL). Changed the trans oil filter and gasket (from sparesbox), used Toyota WS oil from gllubriants(ebay). Car is now shifting smoothly I am impressed. I did see some metal shavings in the pan. Ill post his other video below. Oh and BTW i ordered the scanguageii from fueleconomysolutions. com .au
  15. i bought it my from my uncle & he purchased brand new from the dealer. there was gas leak which was repaired by me re-gassed & which was working fine until the issue occurred
  16. All good Mike, let me know if you have any dramas :)
  17. Welcome to the forum Ellie, enjoy KAA
  18. Thanks. Mechanic said they tested perfectly (comparing their results to gas analyser) but no harm in me giving them a clean.
  19. I can't see it being a costly vehicle to refuel. The difference in price will work out fairly minimal.
  20. Had the same problem in my '08 KX-R. My mechanic couldn't find a leak anywhere & put it down to it coming from where the line comes out of the compressor. He put a sealant in the line when & re-gassed it & seems to have fixed it. No problem for over 18 months.
  21. Not really, there is minimal information out there. From memory, the thicker shims were around $10 each plus postage. I was lucky that they had some very thin ones on the shelf that I needed, they were around half the price.
  22. Happy for you man, if you get the chance let me know on FB how much you got the rebuild for, would be keen on one day getting my gearbox done aswell just for prevention.
  23. Same question asked in that URL. Primary port is the one closest to the booster. Don't know the answers to your other questions. Hopefully others who do know will reply.
  24. I've spoken to him a bit on Facebook recently, as far as I know he's still got the 86.

  26. Mine are still going strong after all the abuse it's gone though, bass boost, loudness, equaliser settings all turned up, sounds fantastic though, shakes every mirror, best stock stock sound system I have heard from any car.
  27. Ah okay, last time I saw him was either at Garage Cafe or when I last organised go karts.
  28. Will do. So far so good. Having read up on this topic, there are also 3 error codes which can only be read by computer analysis. Don't remember them all but 1 is servo motors faulty, 2 is block oil pipes in transmission and I can't remember the 3rd.
