I need to remove to straighten the alloy bullbar on a 100 series cruiser which has been slightly "sprung" as a result of someone touch parking in a shopping centre.

Are the airbags connected to the bullbar and is the bullbar safe to remove.

Brett'
On the serious side, take this as a hint to get rid of the alloy bull bar and replace with steel as an alloy bar are just for show and will NOT protect your car when it is really needed.I have accidently hit a bull on the way to Cape York with a steel bar with absolutely no damage--hate to think what would have happened with an alloy bar!

Brett,

Yes you can remove the Alloy bar and there are no connections to the air bag.

The air bag wires are in a yellow tubing. Don't touch any wires in any yellow tubing on any vehicle.

The dealer has no right to tell you that you cann't replace the alloy bar with a steel bar.

Toyata supply steel bars for there 100series and they are air bag compatible, so do ARB and TJM.

There are a lot of 100 Series with steel bars and have no problems with warranty or Toyota.

Brett,

Sorry mate, thought it was the dealer who said that you can not change the alloy for steel.
