  1. I believe QLD Police ran a fleet of TRD Aurions in the past for highway duties too
  2. 7PK2875 for TRDs, manual says to change this every 90,000 kms
  3. Sure do!! I was thinking of swapping over to an aluminium housing as I've got a spare one for my Aurion and I'm pretty sure they're the same. Have just put the plastic housing back on for now..... Not gorilla tight.
  4. I just went to do an oil and filter change on our Rav that's been serviced exclusively by Toyota for the past five years. I now need to buy a new cap wrench as my impact gun has pretty much multilated the socket hole. Not even a breaker bar would budge it. I don't think I'll be back.
  5. I'm assuming you did the job through the side access hatch?
  6. Fairly easy with an impact gun, theres three nuts underneath, two accessed through holes in the subframe. Top 19mm nut i used a wrench spanner as could not get a socket on it. Just gave it the ol "thats not going anywhere" torque ๐Ÿ™‚ Took me multiple tiny turns with an offset ring spanner to get that bolt out once the trans was jacked up, fortunately theres not much torque on those bolts so breaking them loose isn't a problem. Happy anyway to have killed two birds with one stone.... The shift quality has improved markedly, next time I do an oil change I'll drop the fluid a
  7. I used to have this wheel vibration at 110 km/h, had the wheels balanced twice and new CV axles. Couple days ago I changed my transmission filter which meant dropping the pan, and undoing the trans mount so I could jack it up. Did the job, put everything back together and retightened the engine mounts I took off. Now theres no vibration?? Would a loose or not tight enough engine mount cause wheel vibration?
  8. I believe you can program new keys with Techstream as well ๐Ÿ™‚
  9. I got one of these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mini-VCI-J2534-OBD2-Diagnosekabel-fur-Toyota-Lexus-TIS-Techstream-V13-00-022/254563572560?hash=item3b452bdb50:g:7s4AAOSwJx1ejWvN Used it to change my headlight sensitivity - they come on far too late in my opinion. Compared to the 50 series the 40 series options are pretty limited. I did change my keyfob boot release from a 2 second hold to a single press, and enabled double unlocking. I might have a look around today for those parking sensor options, I'm sure I came across them. It might have just been to change the volume o
  10. I don't want to say for certain, but, when I was messing around with Techstream on my car I saw some options for the parking sensors. Not sure if any of those control the sensitivity/activation distance. Can't remember. I didn't really spend too long on that screen.
  11. Lots of different head units on ebay that will suit our Aurions, hard to say without seeing one in particular. However I would probably find one with Android Auto or Apple carplay so you can use Google maps through your smartphone. I'm still running the old factory 4-stacker GPS unit in my car lol. I know you can get those massive Tesla style screens that replace both the headunit and the A/C controls too.
  12. What does Prime cost you? Every time i buy off amazon it costs a small fortune in shipping to New Zealand ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
  13. Here's what mine looks like. This is on a 3500 SL, so ZR6 equivalent
  14. The spring seat as I recall only inserts into the strut in one way (it has protrusions ), so you can't really get placement of the spring wrong ๐Ÿ™‚
  15. its shaped differently as the standard one would foul on the accessory belt due to the supercharger. They did put out a revised rubber one but if you want the all metal replacement you gotta get it from Lotus
  16. For TRD owners there is no metal replacement from Toyota either...
  17. i'm at 152,000 kms and assuming its still the original alternator. Not looking forward to this job when it comes up
  18. 2 years on my replacement dash is still holding up, the fit and finish/colour is not 100% and probably never will be... however its been exposed to the heat over those 2 years and not had any stickiness or degraded.
  19. Try Dan's Custom car lights mate. I believe he comes very highly rated ๐Ÿ™‚ https://www.facebook.com/danscustomcarlights
  20. I had to get new clips for the 2016 RAV4 i put a dashcam in also, if its anything like that then those weren't too bad to replace, and there was two clips (one top, one bottom) holding the cover on instead of one. About $10 each from memory from the dealer.
  21. Got the same thing to replace on my car as a result of dashcam installation.... I have lost the new clip I bought but if I remember correctly it has spring loaded tabs on either side that hold it to the frame of the car. So not sure how you go from there.
  22. Have gotten into the habit of using a paint marker to mark bolts when i torque them, i find that makes it easy to see at a glance whether a bolt has backed itself out
  23. House of Cards is excellent. Chernobyl, The Pacific, Band of Brothers.... among the best TV series out there
  24. I had a look at the 50 series parts catalogue the other day, i didn't see the fuel filter listed as a standalone component like it is on the 40 series. Possibly it is only supplied as part of a larger assembly which might be why its so expensive from Toyota. Not sure. I am not familiar enough with the 40 vs 50 fuel system differences ๐Ÿ™‚
