  1. Hi all , I have had my previa for 5 yrs and ever since i bought it it has had a loud clicking coming from the left front wheel area whilst reversing .It sounded very much like a worn outer cv joint but also made the noise in a straight line . I replaced both left and right outer cv joints , but the noise persisted . I tried coasting down a steep hill in reverse and all was quiet , but on the level the clicking was there . After some consideration , I decided that the reverse gear pinion must have a tooth missing . I also decided that it didn't warrant a gearbox out job and that i could live w
  2. Hi all, since i only have one master key for my 03 Previa , I purchased a new uncut remote key off ebay.I had the key cut -ok programmed the remote door locking -ok , however i performed the inserting the key five times followed by opening and closing the drivers door six times trick as prescribed on many forums to match the transponder to the ecu . The security light entered programming mode as it should (stayed on ) but when the new key was then inserted it began flashing a 2-1 code , which i think means matching unsuccessfull. This i suspect is due to the wrong type of chip in the key
  3. Hello all , I am in the process of replacing my timing belt and water pump on my 2.0 d4d mk 2 Previa. I have a problem withdrawing the crankshaft pulley . I have got it nearly off but then it fouls the chassis leg . It appears that the only way to get it off is by lowering the engine so that it clears the chassis leg . After having looked at the lower engine mounting , it looks as though the entire engine would have to be lifted about 50mm to free the mount of its studs . The option of removing the mount to block bracket isn't possible as the rubber mount masks one of the bolts . It wou

  6. Hello all , I just had to replace my turbo chra as it had developed 1.1mm axial movement . I have removed the sump and checked the oil pickup is clean , also the oil feed and return pipes , and all of the inlet tract My question is What is the best way to disable the engine , so that i can crank it with the key to get oil pressure up prior to starting and without any fault codes being thrown up sorry if this topic has been covered before and thanks in advance

  8. Hi everybody , just bought my first Toyota, a Previa T2 D4D, and being used to doing all of my own servicing and repairs on every car/motorcycle that i have ever owned , I,m frustrated by the apparent lack of a workshop manual for this model as far as i can see .does anyone know a source of service info ? and alternatively re the engine / gearbox side of things , will a D4D engined manual for the Avensis or other model yield any useful information ? A wiring diagram , i suspect might prove the most elusive thing . I hope someone can point me in the right direction
