  1. The clutch pedal seems fine and normal. I'm always able to shift at the same load time, it's only when I accelerate hard you can hear the revs go way up as the gears aren't engaging properly.
  2. Wonder how the Exedy OEM replacement compares, has anyone used this kit in their Stivo?
  3. Ouch! Just got a quote from a couple of Toyota spare parts dealerships - disc, bearing and cover - $1300 for the OEM clutch parts! Looking at around $2K for the whole install with parts and labour. Does this sound right?
  4. Thanks for your replies guys, sorry for the delay! I've been closely looking at the Exedy clutch kit which seems like really good value and has had rave reviews with it's like-for-like OEM build quality. I do prefer to keep everything OEM as the car is now my wife's daily driver and don't want anything heavy duty that has a hard pedal feel.
  5. Hi everyone Well it looks like it's finally time to replace the original clutch. I'd like to keep everything Toyota genuine OEM and would love to hear from anyone who might know some info I'm after: Part number of genuine OEM clutch Best place to purchase genuine OEM clutch Best place in Sydney to install Thanks in advance :)
  6. UPDATE: Managed to take out the centre concole (thanks Squalled for the handy tips) but the plastic hinge on the left hand side has snapped off as it was only hanging on by a thread. Now the compartment door has nothing to hold it in place and the spring won't function without it being secured. I don't think using glue to stick the plastic piece of the hinge is going to hold very well. I'm thinking maybe some wire to try and hold it in place. Any ideas? I could maybe find another compartment door either new from dealer if they have it or second hand?
  7. Thanks dude. I thought you meant to take out the actual air con vents.
  8. Hi mate, do you mean the centre air con vents on each side of the head unit?
  9. Legend! Thanks man. If you are able to flick through those pics just as a reference that would be great also!
  10. Ok cool. So shall I just follow your steps in that order to remove the trim pieces? I'm guessing once the centre console is out I can just clip the spring in pretty easily?
  11. Oh wow - I didn't know it could all pull apart without me breaking it even more! I will try and give it a go, I may need you as back up though if you're keen to help out. Happy to provide payment for your trouble too.
  12. Ah ok cool, thanks for that 🙂 I was struggling to reach down into the centre console to insert the straight edge spring hook on the side hole. Then again I could be doing it wrong 😞
  13. The pics would be a massive help. If I can see how to load the spring then it should be pretty simple. Did you need any specific tools or did you do it all by hand?
  14. Mate that would be amazing if you could! I took a closer look earlier this morning as i managed to pull the left side of the door tray out and could see there was a little hole inside the left hand side of the centre console. I didn't know which end of the spring goes where, there are different style hooks on each end. Plus I couldn't reach with my finders to fit the spring into the hole down inside the console. Maybe once I see your pics or get the info on how to connect the spring to the door tray and inside the console then it will make loads more sense 🙂 If you're Sydney I'm even happy to drive to you so you can show me as it's totally got me stumped!
  15. Thanks heaps mate. I’m still unsure where the spring hooks into inside the centre console. I can’t see any holes for it to clip in. I can definitely see the hole on the door lid, one hole is being used by the plastic hinge and the other is for the spring. But im lost as to where the other end of the spring clips in to.
