Toyota do traditionally share a lot of parts across their model range, and it is quite possible that the clutch packs may be identical between the two vehicles. It is also possible that the gear sets (crown and pinion) are identical, and possible that the gear sets are different but within identical housings.

As for the expertise that is required to carry out the repair that you are contemplating your brother may succeed with the right equipment, and some knowledge of using bearing blue (or Prussian Blue) and reading the results. The setting up of the final drive (crown and pinion) is something that a lot of motor mechanics have not practiced since their tech course, if they got to do one then. Most workshop manuals do set out the proceedure for reading the markings that do appear on the crown wheel.

Happy tinkering.
