How to turn the "T BELT" Service light off on 1998 95 Series Pradog

When 300,000 clicks turned over on the prado the "T BELT" service light came on the dask permanently. It had a new cam belt 5000 kms ago so there's no worries there.

Clunking is classic worn centre bearing.

Lay underneath and press the popshaft up, there should be zero play on the centre bearing.

Grease is always gonna leak out of universals, centrifugal force enol.
