Re: 1KZ diesel injector pipes

First check what you will pay at the dealers. I replaced the diesel return pipe some time ago and it was not that expensive.

You can also try N1 4X4. They sell genuine parts

Gemini in Joburg, but I don't like going there because of the area.

Not a Hilux, but still a Toyota.

The fuelpump of the Avanza with the fuel filter is as far as I could get in the fuel tank itself. Is there an inspection hole through the floor or must one drop the fuel tank?
