  1. Attention GSU40 GSU45 Owners. After becoming frustrated with a noise emanating from my steering every time i turned left, reporting it to Toyota the past 2 times its been for service and being told that they couldn't replicate the issue, this time it was just too loud for them to ignore and feel through the steering wheel. They have finally admitted there is an issue and they have been issued a Technical Newsflash from Toyota Australia (TNF 06/13). In a nutshell, they wont fix it now, there is no fix to date, they are testing a few things and will have a formal fix. I personally have driven or been in 3 various Klugers (2009 to 2012 models) and all exhibit this issue. On a personal satisfaction level, I am very disappointed with Toyota and the fact that the issue has been around since the release of the GSU40/45 series in 2008 and no fix exists. Please make formal complaint with your dealer, reference this Technical NewsFlash and hopefully one day we will get a fix. Please post your experiences here if you find a fix or a dealer that is willing to help. Cheers Toyota.TNF.06.13.pdf
  2. Hi Everyone, Having problems with stiff steering on my 1986 Celica. Had the rack ends replaced recently mechanic said he could see no leaking with the rack and power steering system. The problem existed before the rack ends were replaced, but mechanic assured me new rack ends would fix the problem. He was wrong. The problem did subside for a while, but has now returned with a vengance. The problem is as follows; Steering is stiff, very heavy. Does not want to return to centre. I did notice driving along in straight line at highway speed, if i rapidly oscillated the steering from left to right it would subside for a while, but it always comes back. So it has been intermittent in nature. Sometimes it feels like it is sticking or binding, but frees up slightly for a period of time. Mechanic then told me he reckons it's the radial valve but then i thought could it be top of struts, tie rod ends, or ball joints. Or, the connection between the rack and the steering column. Could these be binding? Or could it be the pump? Or something else hydraulic. One power steering speciallist i spoke to reckoned it couldn't be hydraulic, because at speeds over 60kmph there is no hydraulic assistance. But if so, how come when you switch the engine off and coast at highway speeds [when there was no problem with the car] steering is very heavy. I guess, i'm a little confused as to where to begin to diagnose this problem, any help would be greatly appreciated. PS. The problem is less intermittent now, and pretty much permanent. Cheers, Paul.
  3. Hi, I have a 2003 Camry Sportivo ACV36R 4cyl Auto, there is a strange "squish" / "squeak" noise as I turn from around the steering wheel/column area, I am sure it is inside and not from under the bonnet area. I have sprayed WD40 between the steering wheel and horn contact area, also on the rubber boot area where the shaft goes thru the firewall Any ideas ???? Thanks Bruce
  4. Hi all, I have a 2004 VZN167R V6 SR5 that has developed a slight steering shudder. It is not constant and only feels like at certain places as the wheel turns. The steering seems to be working fine apart from this. No leaks, oil level is correct and the belt is in good condition. Has anyone come across this before. the vehicle has just over 200k on it. Cheers in advance. Dave.
  5. My steering wheel is showing the following symptoms: *settles off-centre (5-10 degrees to the left) *shakes about 4 times a second at 110km/h *needs to be at 5 degrees to the right for the car to go straight While the car is moving (accelerating or cruising) if I glt go of the steering wheel it re-settles itself to the left. This happens when the road is slightly lower on the left, flat, or slightly lower on the right. When the road is much lower on the right, the steering wheel re-settles itself to the right. At 100km/h there is no steering wheel shake. At 110km/h it shakes. It occurs at a frequency of about 4 times a second and the steering resistance appears to drop about the centre position. Step 1. Dealer performed wheel alignment and no change. Step 2. I then got a quiet rattling sound* from steering column when road is bumpy. Step 3. Dealer replaced steering column for $650 and no change. Step 4. Are there any Aurion expert mechanics in Sydney? *This noise appears a few years ago and was gone after they replaced intermediate steering shaft under warranty.
  6. I'm selling a power steering kit for a ln65 hilux... I believe it fits both the 2L and 3L motors. It came as an extra but not fitted when I bought my truck but I am looking at an engine conversion anyway so it won't be needed. Offer a price and I'll let you know
  7. Hi Recently took Kluger in for 40,000km service and mentioned this "click" on turning. Happens most noticeably at low speed when steering turned and accelerating forward or reversing out of driveway, turning opposite direction and moving forward. Feels a lot like a Steering link or Wheel link that is worn but not likely at 40,000km (3 years) I was told by the Service Dept that "Toyota Australia" had instructed all outlets to stop "trying to fix it" because they were being unsuccessful and Toyota was looking into it. Has anyone else had this? Had it successfully fixed? Thanks Mike
  8. Hey all, Has anyone added the steering wheel controls for the air con? I really want them, but have had no luck finding the part online. Do Toyota sell them? These are the ones I was talking about...
  9. Hi Hilux owners, I have not owned a Hilux for many years now, so my recent;y acquired 1998 SR5 extra cab have some gadgets that I am unfamiliar with - I think. I have tried to get hold of a workshop manual so that I can read up on it, but have not found one yet. So, I am wondering who can tell me what I hear on it - described as such: When I reverse out of my driveway (a bit of an incline) and turn sharp to the right, I hear a sound briefly that sounds like an electric servo of some sort. It goes whoooooor and then stops, almost like something that winds down briefly then stops, this is the only time I hear it and sounds like a "good noise", not that something is faulty. At 60 000km I don't think something is "broken" and everything works. What is this? Thanks, regards, JD
  10. 2/2007 Aurion auto, 112000km, under light to medium throttle in 40 to 80km/hr range has a wobble/vibration. Not felt through the steering wheel, felt through the seat. When car is fully loaded more noticeable and when climbing steep gradients very noticable (and felt through the steering wheel). Bleeds out after 80km/r. At 100 km/hr and above smooth as silk. Checked by 2 steering specialist and local Toyota specialist. Engine mounts seem OK, torque converter not locking, all suspension bushes ok, driveshafts and CV not obviuosly damaged or worn. Wheels good, tyres new (occurred before new tyres). It has the typical Aurion drfit to the left. Don't want to chase the problem by replacing parts till we find it. I'd appreciate thoughts on what the cause might be. Thanks DS
