  1. Hi all, Does anybody know if there are any written / video instructions on how to replace coolant in 2010 Toyota Kluger, please? It's very easy to drain the radiator, but I would like to ensure that the engine is drained of all coolant as well. Thanks Milo
  2. The knock is still there, so I'm going to Toyota this week. Wish me luck! Is this problem still wide-spread or have people just given up on reporting it? Milo
  3. Hi all, I went in with a precise scalpel and chopped the rubber off. I hope I haven't made things worse in the long run. I'm not even sure why that little rubber lining exists. Maybe as a mini stone deflector to protect the roof edge? I've seen many modern cars without that rubber, so it should be OK. Thanks Milo
  4. Hi People, Tyres on my 2010 Kluger are due for replacement (245/55/19). I bought the car a few years ago with Bridgestone Dueler D400 on it. The tyres have done about 50K. D400's are very quiet and comfortable, as you all know. Is there any other tyre that you guys would recommend these days? I would even like to go a size or so wider if possible. Thanks Milo
  5. Hi all, On my 2010 Kluger the rubber between the windshield and the roof is tearing off. Should I tear it off all the way and put some silicone in the channel instead? Thanks Milo
  6. Hi all, Would somebody know where I could find a maintenence schedule for 2010 Kluger, please? I would like to know what was done in services prior to 70000km. Every time you go for a service, the mechanics rip of the part that lists all items done, so I have no way of knowing what was done and when. Thanks Milo
  7. Hi all, Rang Peter Warren. They said to bring it in for a free test drive and they could probably get Toyota to pay for half the repair cost. Rang Sydney City Toyota. They want $140 to assess the problem, but my chances of getting the repairs covered by Toyota are unknown. Took the car to my mechanic first, but the clunk did not appear, as expected, as the clunk doesn't happen too frequently. They lifted the car, inspected everything underneath, but no problems were evident. Since taking the car to my mechanic, the car barely ever makes the clunk now! The steering mechanism must have "stretched" while being lifted on the hoist at the mechanic's. We'll see how it goes.
  8. Hi all, I'm pretty sure that my 2010 Kluger KXS AWD has the same problem. Knocking noise coming from the front part of the car. Must be the intermediate steering shaft. Is there a definitive, permanent fix for this problem? As the car is out of warranty, would Toyota fix the problem free of charge or would I have to pay for this known issue? Thanks Milo
  9. Hi all, What do you think about this one............... My 2010 Kluger KXS AWD has lately developed this noise which is hard to describe, but it's most likley to be a creak. It comes from the front left hand side area while driving. It can happen on a straight road, in a bend, under acceleration or not under acceleration. I had a look under the car, nothing seems to be lose or out of place. Any ideas, please? Thanks Milo
  10. Hi People, Had my Kluger at Toyota for a week. They fixed the diff whine. They had to change the diff pinion, diff gear and couple of bearings. We'll see how it goes. Sounds good now. They also replaced the loose bonnet hinge. Thanks to everybody for your kind responses to this topic which helped me a lot! Milo
  11. Hey Daz, Tell us all about it, please. I saw the unit on ebay and I must say that it looks good. What are your experiences with it? Easy to install? Any plugs to be re-done or is it a straight plug-in to existing wiring? Thanks Milo
  12. Hi People, I think I found the problem. I finally found some time to investigate the rattle. I think it's coming from the left bonnet hinge. I have proven this by jamming a sponge under the bonnet near the left hinge and then closing the bonnet. I drove the car afterwards over various surfaces and the problem did NOT reoccur once! The screws that hold the hinge to the bonnet are tight, but the pivoting part is loose, it seems. At my next service in January, I'll ask Toyota to fix it. Do you guys think this hinge rattle is covered by warranty? Thanks Milo
  13. 38. Might try 40 one day
  14. Hi people, I read this thread the other day and decided to have a closer listen to my Kluger (2010 KXS AWD - done about 51000km - bought it a month ago). I did notice a very faint humming (whine?) between 60 and 70 km/h. Below and above these speeds there is no such noise. I've noticed that the noise is present only while accelerating at speeds between 60 and 70. If I take my foot of the accelerator the noise stops right away. Also, while going downhill without accelerator, the noise is not there at all. Does this sound like a problem you guys are talking about? Thanks Milo
