I have no idea, it's actually first time happening to me. I did hear about this failure but never expect it on this car ? The rubber sleeve holding the two halves is quite large and a small protion cracked, it basically unglued itself.Is that a Lexus thing, or does the 80 also have a dampened harmonic balancer?
I remember this happening in the BMW world regularly, you could get a single piece balancer aftermarket.....
I assume heat exposure was the cause ?
Just order a new Toyota pulley, now looking for a tool. Anyone have one to borrow or sell ?
This job for sure job stinks !
