Strange thing happened today! Prado went to Toyota to replace timing belt and they informed me that there is a re-call notice out on the 90 series Prado (ref SSC 11/2006/7) iro the Rear Axle Shaft. They informed me that the notice is a week old and that my Prado will have to go back in to replace Rear Axle with both RH & LH Shaft Kit. (Toy SA are paying)
In the printed sheet they gave me they mention there is 2 333 vehicles affected in the SA market!
PraDog is booked in for Wednesday morning. I hope that they have spares available for whatever they decide to do. The SM said they have ordered the spares already. I do not know what they look for, PraDog has no rear axle problems of which I am aware - no diff hum, no back-lash - nuffin'!
But who knows - maybe I end up getting a new diff with diff-lock for free!
