Location of new Part....

I e-mailed just about all the Toyota Dealers in Perth, Western Australia, all up, about 11 of them, and only 2 replied. 1 Toyota dealer, just by chance, had one of the replacement item in stock locally, the other had to have it delivered from Sydney. Apparently, only 2x items in all of Australia!!!!!!! Anyway... didn't waste any time, and indicated that I'll pick it up immediatly the following day early in the morning...

Phew!!!!! saved..... Anyway... Piece looks nice & new... and out of place in the old raggy, greassy 20v gearbox... I might just have to degrease it... :-)... Pics below...



The new and old pieces, side by side. You can see where it has been snapped off....
(Also shown is the original part #)


If you look at the toyota part #s, they actually have 3 part # for this item... one being the outer sleeve, one for the inner shaft & Wheel and one for clip. Simply remove the clip, and the shaft will slide out nice & easy... Use the air-gun to simply blow out any dirt in the new shaft, insert the new shaft and clip on the clip that keep it into place.



Then insert the whole assembly into the gearbox.... Simple... :-)
