Hi there, just wondering if anyone has, or knows if it is even avalible, a Toyota interchange manual for the years from about 1990-2000. I've seen them for up to 1982 but nothing later. Thanks

Maybe it's for when your Toyota breaks down and it's a help manual for a bus or train !!!

OK, sorry I didn't explain. Interchange manuals are used to reveal which parts from the same manufacturer interchange with different models. For example I know that the driver's power window regulator on an 80 series Cruiser is interchangable with one off the back door of another Toyota. Guess which one's cheaper at the wreckers. This can make it easier or cheaper to source a replacement. It can be amazing what parts interchange between completly different cars. These manuals are reasonably common in the US. At the time of writting this there were 75 manuals available on Ebay USA. I've added a link if you would like to have a look. http://search.ebay.com.au/interchange-
PS. I think these books would be like gold for any car that needs replacement parts. I guess Patrol/ Maverick drivers wouldn't be interested then?

Stuart,

I have been in the genuine parts game for 30 years and have never seen one. We can, however punch a number into the Electronic parts catalogue to see what other models the part fits but only on later vehicles or at least ones covered by CD Roms. These are not available on the open market and are programmed to both time out after a date and also are controlled by dongles which makes them useless to copy.
