One of your pictures shows the key in the cylinder but in the "lock" position. The key/cylinder needs to be in the "ACC" position to install it.

Yeah well I tried that too, I know it’s just one of the single photos. I can’t turn the key at all and it doesnt feel like it’s seated all the way

but you can turn to key when when you hold the cylinder in your hand?

In this video, it seems pretty straightforward. However, it looks like what he pulls out is just the cylinder and in your pictures you have an adapter that connects the cylinder with the starter electrical switch on the other side. Maybe the problem is with getting that seated. In your picture you have the adapter attached to the barrel. Can you first install the adapter, make sure it is bottomed out, then try the cylinder?

OK ,

STOP what your doing right away ASAP please ........... 🚨



- what you have going on is :

- you have a FJ62 according to your TITLE thread ?

- DO not force this part another metric second or your gonna have your feelings really hurt ........


- the replacement cylinder u have in your hands is 100% without any question or any speculation a FJ60 8/80-9/87 WRONG profile lock cylinder


if you crack that aluminum
receiver your gonna really feel the pain my friend !


This is Exactly the Correct OEM TOYOTA genuine Parts You Need Now ..........


Please feel fre to PM me with any questions

im here to help in any way i can


thanks
matt
