    Just wondering if anyone has a source of - sensibly priced - supply of the above unit?

    The passenger side alloy sleeve/mounting/bush holder on my 2001 LWB Collie is crumbling due to corrosion. this is pretty much the only problem with the whole truck.Always been one for preventative rather than reactive works.

    Apart from a slightly wonky wiper arm, it all functions fine, but will need sorting soon.

    Unfortunately, it seems I can only buy the complete unit from Toyota - It's frustrating that a multi-part assembly can't be sourced as individual components.

    Any advice?

    Thanks in advance.

    Not sure exactly which bit you're after but the part number is available on Amayama for £85 plus the usual postage/import duty/VAT costs.

    MODVRS, thanks for this info, much appreciated!


    The actual part is the housing which the LH wiper shaft passes through (& is bolted to the body) and rotates within. I'll look into Amayama; regrettably, this comes as part of the complete assembly & is not listed anywhere as an individual component. oh well...

    StarCruiser, thanks for checking.

    Been looking, but everything is of an age with mine or, usually, older. Haven't managed to find a good used one yet.

    Well, got a couple of options for new, genuine assemblies...
    1. Main Dealer - far side of £230 + VAT
    2. Roughtrax (genuine part) about the same as Amayama delivered price.
    Just got to wait for them to come in.

    OK, Sloppy Bush update...

    Hope a little 'how to' may save someone having to take it to a garage for such a simple job...

    Here was the problem - this is the state of the passenger side wiper bush (the one which passes up through the bulkhead). Only a little worn :think:
    upload_2019-5-24_18-44-57.jpeg
    Having had a chat with Barry at Roughtrax when I posted up initially, he told me he was going to request a discount price from Toyota as mine (March 2001 build) was probably one of the youngest 3.0TD KZJ95's & these were only sold as complete replacement assemblies. It wasn't going to be cheap, but he'd see what he could do...

    On opening the box, here was a genuine part at £139 + the dreaded VAT.
    upload_2019-5-24_18-46-11.jpeg

    OK, on to the job...

    Tools needed:

    3/8" drive for ease of access
    12mm socket (short)
    10mm socket (short)
    Extension bar
    Dumpy cross-head screwdriver
    'Angled' cross-head screwdriver
    Short prybar
    Hammer
    Wooden block

    upload_2019-5-24_18-48-36.jpeg
    As you can see, the passenger wiper would be hanging down off the screen due to wear in the pivot.
    First job was removal of the clips covering the shaft nuts. Then 12mm socket to release the nuts.
    A wooden block on the scuttle cover and a gently prising up while tapping the base of the arm with the hammer sees removal fairly easily (worth leaving the nuts threaded a couple of turns so as to avoid the arm springing off & scratching the paintwork).
    Stepladder time for the passenger side wiper assembly unless you're taller than Edd China!

    Next job (under the bonnet) is removal of the press clips at either end of the scuttle, followed by the 4 cross-head screws along the leading edge (Stubby or cranked cross-head here).

    With the bonnet propped open, a gentle wiggle forward should see the scuttle cover slide free of the clips and the trim across the base of the screen (care needed as the clips - one either side & 2 spaced across the screen - are old and may be brittle by now!)
    upload_2019-5-24_18-51-21.jpeg


    Clean out all the muck & leaves (in this case pine needles!) from the scuttle & remove the 3x black access grilles - clipped in place. This gives access to the wiper mechanism.
    upload_2019-5-24_18-52-6.jpeg


    Undo the 3x bolts from each spindle mounting (10mm socket).
    upload_2019-5-24_18-53-14.jpeg


    Now disconnect the wiper motor (check contacts for corrosion) from the wiring loom.
    upload_2019-5-24_18-53-46.jpeg
    upload_2019-5-24_18-54-13.jpeg

    Undo the 4x motor retaining bolts (10mm socket & wobble joint may bee needed) to release the motor.

    REMEMBER, THE WIPER ARM IS 'TIMED' TO THE PARK POSITION!

    DO NOT REMOVE THE ARM FROM THE MOTOR!

    If you wiggle the mechanism around, you will see a small hook
    upload_2019-5-24_18-55-31.jpeg
    about 40mm from the joint. This hooks over the edge of the hole in the scuttle, supporting the mechanism while you prise the ball out of the socket.
    upload_2019-5-24_18-55-56.jpeg

    Remove the mechanism from the largest of the holes in the top of the scuttle.
    upload_2019-5-24_18-56-58.jpeg
    Quite a difference...

    INSTALLATION is the reverse of removal - insert the mechanism, sliding the clip over the edge of the motor-hole in the scuttle - the ball on the rotating motor arm clips in surprisingly easily.
    upload_2019-5-24_18-57-55.jpeg
    upload_2019-5-24_18-59-17.jpeg

    There is enough room to hold each spindle in place while inserting the bolts previously removed.
    upload_2019-5-24_18-59-59.jpeg

    Bolt the motor back into place & reconnect the loom.

    Insert the grilles, then slide the scuttle cover over the spindles and up, under the windscreen trim (remember, it slides back and up to locate under the screen & is equidistant from the inner wing edges to locate in the side clips).
    Test the wiper motor for appropriate operation before refitting the arms (having cleaned out the splines first).

    Refit the arms, nuts & cover clips.

    Happy Bunny now has wipers that don't go KLUNK!

    Very well done :thumbup:.

    But - What is that rivetted-up 'Mad Max' thing in picture 4 :icon-question: :think:.

    I believe it might be a VW?

    Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated. :thumbup:

    Bob, I wondered if anyone might ask... my son will be devastated - It's Death-Race inspired, not Mad Max :laughing-rolling:Here's a little taster (note to Mark: not a VW...:eusa-shhh:):

    How did I guess it would only be a matter of time before the bar got lowered even further, Shayne?!? :laughing-rolling::laughing-rolling::laughing-rolling:
    Is there a difference between a Brazilian and a Welsh wax?:think:
