  4. Hi I am needing some advice i have bought a 105 series 2004 with a 1 hz non turbo diesel it ia x mine vehicle i got it cheap and the running gear is perfect i have cleaned all under neath gave it a new timing belt new radiator ect. now its the interiors turn i tried every chemical i can get my hands on but nothing works it is a standard model inside vinyl bench seats and a cargo door model. I would like to upgrade the interior to single bucket seats at the front and use the interior from a Sahara model change the standard wind up window doors to powered windows all the dash to come out including air con unit . is this possible i cant get a answer from a wreckers anywhere they try to sell me wrong parts eg a petrol dash as i have a diesel so i need glow plug light ect is there an expert out here who knows if i can do this and recommend the right place to buy parts from ?Its a job and a half but only paying 8 grand for the cruiser i thinks its worth doing I have compared in looking at buying an alternative cruiser but only clapped out gxl model available for 16 gs . With a mine vehicle they use good quality suspension gear and look after there running gear i was surprised how much power is in the 1 hz she goes very well in the pics you can see i cleaned her up well the engine bay was red all over a bit of vinegar and bicarb soda did the trick i am not to fussed just want it nice and neat for my family to go on some trips and have fun and explore thanks for reading any advice much appreciated. I am in South Australia but i am willing to travel Australia wide to get it done . if i can find a unit for sale and put my running gear in it to maybe an alternative if its cheap enough
  5. Hi all! long time Toyota owner, first time member. my names Chris, I live on the Eyre Peninsula in S.A. had a few Toyotas over the years, an AE92 Corolla, RN105 HiLux, an Avalon and 2 80 Series Landcruisers to name a few. My latest purchase is a 2004 Kluger CVX, got it for a very good price just needing a good scrub. looking forward to chatting to some of you over my time here, I’m sure I’ll be needing some bits and pieces and advice! cheers! Chris

  7. Redo the rear sway bar due to damage by hydraulic jack by some mechanics, it is sprayed in orange so that it is visible. The car bites the corner really good now. The bar is hand made by kmac suspension at rockdale. It has 2 holes adjustable I have done a measurement for front and rear sway bar, 23mm front and 20mm back. The ratio is 20/23=0.87. this ratio is important for fwd cars to control understeer/oversteer That's why it does not have any understeering and little lift off oversteering. For your info, latest corolla use 27.8 front and 24.5 rear , that's why it handles really well. It is really really thick for stock production car
  8. Hi can anyone identity what this box is? Conected to my air intake before air box. Thanks
  9. Hi There I'm just after some advice if you don't mind. I'm getting a creaking noise and also a popping sound when I turn left or right coming from the front end on this land cruiser I've got. And was just wondering if you may have some idea with your experience as to what it may be or what I can check to see what it could be. I've had a good look at all the components, everything looks tight and when it's jacked up of the ground (so no load on it) there's no noise. Any advice would be great. Thanks. Kind regards George
  10. Hi Tony C, after reading your reply, I did some checking on line and found out the last Aurion came off the production line on 17/8/17 at the Altona plant, Melbourne. Also, the compliance sticker shows date of June 2017.
  11. I have a 2008 Kluger KX-R 7 seat. The air con is a split system. The front is separate to the rear. When I turn on the aircon it will be cool on the front drivers side but the front passenger side is warm. All of the rear when turned on is blowing warm air. Both the front and rear fans are fine and working. Can someone please tell me what the problem is?? I have done some research and a few have said its the evaporator which is behind the dash. So the whole complete dash has to be removed. Too much of a headache and expensive too. Thanks.
  12. Hi folks, I am thinking of buying a 2010 Rav4 3.5 lt ZR6 V6. It is from a dealer. It has 117000km. My concern is that a few folks I have spoken to say that it uses lots of fuel. What is your experience. I am buying to tow a camper trailer. It will also be my daily driver. Sure wpuld appreciate any feedback in reagard to fuel consumption and any other issues, faults or problems you have experinced. Thanks in advance. Simon

  14. Hi everyone first time posting. i have recently put a 2.8L (3L) motor in my 99 Hilux. Was. 3.0L (5L) but couldn’t find one for a decent price to replace it when it stopped working on me. All non turbo. my uncle who helped me replace the motor said he had heard of people flushing older diesel fuel systems with either a small amount petrol or kero when servicing. Ever done it himself but said it might be worth finding out Looked around on google and it’s mostly people saying can’t do it with newer ones so here I am seeing if anyone has any advice for me with this area? thanks
