    120 dog guard

    The genuine Toyota guard is a huge thing, bolted in and yes it goes to the floor, some £350 i believe new. We bought one of these https://www.travall.co.uk/toyota/landcruiser-5-door-2003-2009 Its dog proof well made and durable, but if your dogs are likely to chew the backs of the seats...

    Air suspension anomaly

    Thanks for the Milner suggestion, it appears those adjusters you posted pics of are for height control on 100 series. Not as that matters i've ordered one and it works out half the price of the genuine artice from Subaru, much obliged to you Simon.

    Air suspension anomaly

    Well done Simon, now get busy with that ACF50 or whatever magic anti rust you choose :icon-cool: However i am intrigued by those adjustable links you showed, pray where can i get one. I ask because a similar link on the rear track control arm of our Forester seized and when mighty mouse here...

    New video on changing rear air springs

    Toyota Maintenance is a regular youtuber who obviously by his name works on Toyotas, he's just published a new video on replacing airsprings on a Lexus GX470, which is a 120 with the engine we wish we could get here. Anyway, this video is the dogs bits, really clear photography showing every...

    Headlight change

    The only experience i have of buying aftermarket headlamps was for a Mitsubishi Outlander, OE units were prone to the lenses crazing badly and Mitsi offered no support at all to affected owners of out of warranty vehicles, genuine replacements were stupidy expensive despite the original units...

    Last underside question - 2006 LC5 129k

    Well done AndycruiserguyLomas for looking at that motor and taking those pertinent pics, a perfect example of why i avoid vehicles that have spent time in Scotland whenever possible, was easy for a while when the MOT history gave addresses of test stations, but now that short lived feature has...

    Where do you live, you must be within reach of one of the members here who would show you around their motors, so you know what you are looking for. My advice would be to just wait and see what pops up whilst you are browsing, but when the right one comes don't mess about go immediately to the...

    That sounds like salesman bull to me, but you won't know for sure till you get under yourself and inspect it closely, as said its at the high end of pricing for a fairly high mileage 2006 LC5, especially if its regd after March 23rd so triggering £555 VED, so it wants to be a good one.

    Last underside question - 2006 LC5 129k

    Its a messy job whatever you're applying, this is an annual top up not a start from scratch. I lie on sheet of rubber and cover the ground where i'm spraying with large cardborad sheets, if you have a large room sized polythene dust cover suggest you put that down and then drive the vehicle...

    Brake pistons seizing

    Much obliged for that, i was a little worried that traditional bleeding might not be suitable for these motors with the electric pressure pump, but that's proabably more of an issue if the ABS unit gets air inside, or the master cylinder/pump unit has to come off.

    Mine's up on 4 ramps at this very moment, 2 higher than normal at the front and 2 standard at the back, makes that annual rustproofing routine both easy and safe. Soon as i've finished me cheese on toast lunch it's ACF50 spraytime. :cool:

    Last underside question - 2006 LC5 129k

    That one @ Chesterfield was noting underbody corrosion on the MOT history as long ago as 2014. What is it with car owners these days, all about image or what? the topside cleaned regularly even if they get some dodgy car wash to do it, the inside kept clean, but never a though to whats...

    Brake pistons seizing

    KVA distributors is etched i my memory, much obliged to me learned friend, it would probably cost the same to get my existing calipers refurbed should they need it, will decide later on in the year when i check again and see how those inner lower pistons are doing. Just out of interest TonyCY...

    Last underside question - 2006 LC5 129k

    You know the sad thing here is that had that motor been given a little sensible annual after winter care, ie washing the crud, and the accumulated salt trapped in said crud, off around April/May when the salt is finally gone from the roads, that underside would be only half as bad as it is, it...

    Brake pistons seizing

    Seems a common theme, handy info that replacement calipers arn't silly expensive, but if they do need refurbing next year i might send them to Bigg Red and let them do the job. I think its a Japanese issue here generally not confined just to Toyota, we had a Mitsubishi Outlander for a short...
