  1. Maybe a BSC outlet or similar can match and upgrade the gears. They supply power transmission parts like gears, bearings, seals ect.
  2. Just to be clear the engine never actually failed it just stopped running at the time then restarted afterwards ?
  3. does this help ? https://www.toymods.org.au/forums/threads/54262-Clutch-wont-bleed
  4. And MB Insurance is underwritten by QBE Insurance (Australia) Limited
  5. Or perhaps modify the TCR10 bar fit ?
  6. Is the Tarago currently unregistered or just changing owners ? Most workshops know where to look for vehicle ID's. What is missing the VIN plate or the compliance sticker or another ? Perhaps your Toyota dealer could be of help for you.
  7. Glad the family is enjoying the new Rav. Hopefully the annoying rattle issue is resolved at service time. I like the concept / size ect, but still cannot come to grips with CVT gearboxes.
  8. consider this complete with bezels ready to install... https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Full-Kit-Set-Fog-Light-Spot-Driving-Lamp-Black-For-Toyota-Aurion-GSV50-12-17/142699468390?fits=Year%3A201
  9. This maybe helpful https://www.rav4world.com/threads/1997-3sfe-to-5sfe-swap.212609/
  10. see this on Ebay 6 available Not ZR but KOOL wheels https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Genuine-Toyota-Aurion-Oct-06-Oct-11-Kappa-Alloy-Wheel-18-X-7-5/262856892695?epid=611244837&hash=item3d337de117:g:ZdEAAOSwksxdd-Pc&frcectupt=true
  11. Nope, mine are mounted just to the left of the rear view mirror, high up. The driver cannot see the camera from the drivers seat so no vision is obscured by the device.
  12. I found these, not exactly what you need but interesting info.. https://www.toymods.org.au/site/ try searching here for swaps. also https://www.toyotaownersclub.com/forums/topic/36258-hiace-engine-swap/


    I read this in GoAuto in May this year ..... Toyota spokesman said....While Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support will be progressively rolled out as standard equipment, owners of the current-generation Corolla small car and Camry mid-size car, as well as early adopters of the new RAV4, will be able to have it retrofitted. The Japanese brand said the retrofit will be available via its dealer network with only a “quick visit” to a local dealership required to have it installed.
  14. From new I had a 1978 HiAce 5 door and stupidly never lifted the engine cover to service it correctly for 120k kms. Boom it seized ! Back in the day, 1979, the were no Jap imports engines ect. So I replaced it with a Holden 202 6 cylinder mated to the original gearbox (using a Dellow adaptor ) She went really well but the diff ratio was too low so i fitted 16" wheels (taller tyres) to the rear to compensate. Terribly award to work under /around the engine area. Today I am sure there a a zillion easier engine / transmission alternatives to use.
  15. No not a Rav4, but in both my Camry's, the cameras are mounted passenger side of the rear view mirror. They are not visible from the drivers position, the wiring is tucked in along roof lining then into the rubber on the A pillar, across under the glove box into the usb pods i have installed. I am using Viofo A119S cameras,very compact units.
