    I mounted a rear electric locker for an FJ80 in the front of my FJ40. At the ECPR I cracked the housing that holds the motor and lock/unlock assembly on the side of the locker. Does anyone have this housing part they would sell to me?

    Also, how would I repair it? Can the housing thingie be removed and replaced with the diff in place? All recommendations greatly appreciated.

    I had this same thing happen from my own stupidity....:rolleyes: Anyways I sourced a used one from cruiserparts.net Was I htink $200 or less, can't remember and it worked perfectly.

    you can't buy ANY parts for these...and most won't have them. Cdan price is like $600 bills...i doubt christo will have any as they don't usually keep just that part, but you can try.

    You *could* try to make sure it's sealed good, the use like a spacer/oversize washer type thing to hold the bottom type, unless it's totally cracked all around the back...then you are SOL...

    ****edit****

    yes you can remove/replace it all. Just take the sensor off, and that cover and you'll see the bolt for the arm...
