Re: 3.0 D4D Clutch Problem

When speaking to the local stealers, they guy mentioned that they have some in stock as the hilux's get done often (I have a tuna and was asking about my clutch). That said, this is an assumption....

As far as I know they're the same. :)

Re: Dash lights on.

Car must be off. You can also try remove battery and reconnect. Chances are you've blown a fuse... check all the tail/stop/turn fuses and maybe the abs one as well. There's a fuse box under the bonnet and another one under the steering wheel :) gl mate!

Re: Hilux Trailer For my Fortuner

I also thought of doing it, put an alu canopy on it with roofrack and a drawer system in the back. But to get one costs a bit unless you have a contact, and the load bit itself weighs quite a bit. But yes I do like the idea. :thumbup: Speaking of.... What does a S/C bin weigh? And cost for that mat...

I am fitting a switch for on / off but I'd like to know where one mounts the replay for this in a vigo / fortuner :)

Re: What Bullbar

It doesn't work with enertia only, it needs a knock, you can set it off with a hammer if you hit close to the sensor with no inertia involved. That's why the more solid bumper may set it off sooner, the plastic bumper gives way with no resistance causing no inertia or knock. So what would you fit? ...

Strong and airbag compatible does not go hand in hand. In order to be airbag compatible it must be weak, otherwise it wont crumple. Ok, so what happens if you have a non-compatible bar and you have an accident and someone gets hurt... Thats a worry for me... When you say weak, I'm sure that they ar...
