IFS 2.7 4x4 sump removal advice

Hi

Haven't posted here in quite a while, and need some advice from the IFS experts!

My Hilux is leaking oil from the sump.

What is the easiest method to remove the sump?

Looks like there is only 2 options... remove the front diff or take the engine out? :thumbdown:

Thanks,

Etienne

Re: Wifi 4 home. Please help!!!

Chris, none of the ISPs other than Telkom will include landline rental with DSL. If you are going to stick with 1 ISP, then include the DSL line rental in the package. It is just easier to resolve issues this way. If you are going to want to be able to jump around between all the ISPs then leave DSL...

Chris, that 50/50 mushroom and mince burger patties sounds delicious. I must try it out.

I also need to start eating healthier again, I did banting for a while but stopped about 3 months ago, and since then I have been eating all the unhealthy stuff like there is no tomorrow.
