    when was this bulletin issued ? i got a bollocking for suggesting it when i first bought it ( 3yrs/55K ago ) from guys that have been at Toyota dealerships for many, many years, claiming internet myth. one tech said a customer demanded they inspect at 300k, so they did, but only fitted shells because it was open, but not due to wear ?

  8. cheap insurance . many 15A appliances will run on 10A (if it actually is 10A), but ensuring you have at least 15A spare, after lights/stereo/compressor etc is where heavier circuits come into their own . have run some pretty decent loads on 10A, but wrecked a few motor windings on it too furthermore, ensure the supply cabling to the workshop submain is adequate.

  13. find someone with an F code Toyota centre and check the spline fitment, as easier to get LSD from Altezza I know the smaller H165 is same spline as Toyota T and they can be trans-fitted with some tweaking .
