    Rear right Squeak

    question about a frozen bell crank assembly - can the ebrake still function if bell crank is frozen? with the overhaul, did you have to replace anything, or did you just take it apart/clean up/reassemble?

    Rear right Squeak

    thats a new one, I don't think i've heard that specific issue yet. Any chance you could post a pic of the clip location for the rest of us still trying to kill the squeak?

    Doors unlock but won't lock

    Ok - bringing this full circle - I took the replace actuator motor only route and here's the field report (I'm also not a legendary mechanic): 1. First, kudos to @clayinho aka @TheLandCruiserProject on YouTube. Great write up video! 2. Time - replacing driver door actuator motor only, I spent...

    Constant squeak coming from rear end of 06 LC

    ok great feedback, thx! The FSM steps to service the e-brake are intimidating. Am I just being weak? How many bananas would you award this job...I'd give myself a 1.5 banana mechanic rating....is it in my wheelhouse? If not, is that stealership work or who?

    Constant squeak coming from rear end of 06 LC

    Checking back in on this one now that suns up and windows are down, and I look like a huge D because I still have the squeak issue... @Pyrenees - did you ever end up getting it fixed, and what worked if so? I'm also wondering if the sway/stabilizer bar links could be the source of the sound...

    Doors unlock but won't lock

    Got it - appreciate the explanation! For those of you experiencing my specific issue (a specific actuator motor failing) - found a great repair video from The Land Cruiser Project. Is this guy a Mud member, he makes great stuff?

    Deferred Maintenance (PO) Advice For a Rookie Hundy Owner...

    next question - any ideas on what do to about the window trim/frame paint fading around driver, passenger, and backseat door windows? I think these are usually 'stickers' on most cars, but on ours I think the metal is painted black. Mine has been getting worse rapidly over the past year, and I...

    Doors unlock but won't lock

    I'm experiencing some version of this issue, driver's door only. And I've also noticed it only happens when the outside temp is around or about 70F. Quite simply - as I'm walking away from the rig and hit lock on the remote, driver door half locks, all other doors lock, and then about 5 seconds...

    P0135 and P0155.... perhaps this is the culprit

    curious to see if this fixed the problem? I just got the P0135 code myself. Did that trigger your check engine light (did mine)?
