Drop Dave a note at Japan4x4. I just got a whack load of lovely OEM parts delivered to my house many of the parts came up as unavailable in north america. Shipping from japan is not so expensive at all.Damn! All these Toyota Dealer parts departments keep saying that they have something in stock, then cancelling the order and not notifying me when they discovery they don't actually have it in stock/its discontinued. And they dont call you to tell you, you have to follow up, even if you paid already.
Is that the norm at dealers?
That's just an inspection cover. You could make one out of a flat piece of 1/8" steel plate or even a piece of flat abs plastic. But I wouldn't worry about it too much. It's not contributing to your leak whatsoever. The leak is probably your rear main seal and oil pan gasket. May as well do the transmission input seal too that the torque converter slides into. Make sure you engage the torque converter all the way when reinstalling.I have a manageable oil leak that Im starting the process of tracking down. The place that drips the most appears to also be missing some kind of cover. Maybe starting by replacing that cover would be a good place to start, in addition to cleaning things up a bit and watching for fresh oil/seeepage.
Anyone know what is supposed to go over this hole?
