How To: Change Gearbox Oil


Recommended Posts

Thanks for this, need to do mine.

Can I ask though won't the oil bottle fit directly into the filler hole?

Thought this was why they had a long neck that flexed, so you would not need a big piece of pipe.

Cheers for that, very useful, going to change mine in a week or 2 when I am servicing her, she's got 66k on her and looking at the service history it's never been done, looks like the hardest thing will be getting the sealing washers B)

Thanks for this nrgizer, i'll see if I can source some tubing and have a go at this next week as im on 55k and its never been done to my knowledge. Might sort out a bit of deceleration noise for me ;) .

Probably change the sparks while i'm doing it.

Will one of the mods add this to Kimi's sticky how to's at the top you think?

Ok job done!

The only problem I came across is that Toyota gave me the wrong sized gearbox sump washer (thanks toyota), so I had to re-use the old one and at about 2 litres of filling it started dripping out the filler plug and I had to be super quick putting the plug back in when I pulled the tube out.

Opie Oils said that Castrol have stopped making TAF-X in 1ltr bottles by the way.

Thanks for the guide ;)

If you wanna know what 55k old Gearbox oil looks like, here ya go -

Just changed mine earlier today, thanks for the guide! Made it a really simple job, apart from the nuts which took a while to undo.

Toyota didn't have any gaskets in stock so I just used the old ones too ;)

But thanks again nrgizerbunny keep up the good work :thumbsup:
