All parts and pieces for rebuilding your rear e-brake system are readily available from Toyota as well.... It's confusing... But I've laid it out here for folks to refer to....

Onur is absolutely correct; I just finished up yesterday doing a rear brake refresh and rebuilding the parking brake system, which has never worked since I purchased my Cruiser almost 5 years ago, and all parts are avail and reasonably inexpensive. I cleaned up some parts but others were just too rusty/corroded so I opted for new.

Hint: if you do this, take a ton of pictures as you disassemble. You always think you will remember but I was so fortunate I took pice each step of the way !!

You removed the axle and hub!? That's cheating! :flipoff2:
Yeah, I decided to check the axle oil seal and bearings, while I was in there, and I’m glad I did. The seal had failed and pretty much washed the bearings clean of grease so a repack was in order.

Feels good that it’s now sorted for a good long while......

Afternoon,

I am hunting for the seatback foam for manual seats. I believe the part number is 71551-60080, i cant seem to find it and I am wondering if it is discontinued? if it is I am guessing the foam from the power seats cannot be used?

I am looking for the backs unfortunately. I have the bottoms already
Ahh. Still applies, just find a similar back. You can also buy high resiliency (HR) foam slabs from a domestic polyurethane producer and shape as needed. 3M spray adhesive is commonly used for gluing foam into various furniture shapes. Or just get sheet foam and graph in a repair to the existing.

Awesome info! That’s what I think I’m gonna have to do. Just bolster what’s there. It’s not like it is disintegrating, but it is nowhere near the support it used to be

80 series transmission wire harness where it connects to the main engine wire harness near the starter is discontinued: 82125-60290
Anyone know how I can figure out the price of one of these when they were still available?

By disco parts, do you mean parts like these that are discontinued but there still might be a couple on the shelves somewhere?

Yup. Or used even. People selling these probably have a good idea of their value to someone who needs it.

Supply and demand.

Yes, also commonly referred to as NOS or New-Old-Stock.

After manufacture is discontinued these items become worth what someone is willing to pay for them.
