Now that Darkie is an official Queenslander and I can let out a sigh of relief. I have booked him in to get the Brake recall done for Tuesday next week.
From memory some people have been told that they (Toyota) wanted to do the wheel bearings at the same time.
What is the damage that Toyota do to yuor hip pocket when they do it or am I better off having a go myself if needed.


Cheers Kev

I like your thinking,
they should be doing the Bullbar recall at the same time as mine is one of the ones that have the mounts fracture under load from winching. I expect that they would only fracture from pulling Nissans out ha ha ha

Bearings are nothing to do with the recall. Like to see you say "do whatever is necessary" and then not pay for anything. Recommend you take a blank cheque and hand it over if you say that. Hope you were joking!!!

G'day there Kev, there are some excellent brake servicing facilities here in New South. Perhaps you could try Sydney where there oodles of such people or maybe here in Newcastle & we could have a beer or six while you were waiting to have the job done.

It would not be a good idea to have a go at doing it yourself, as I read a post the other day saying you were now a council worker.
If this is correct you would need to lean your shovel up against something & you might unwittingly lean it against Darkie, thus scratching the Duco? LOL & cheers

Pleny of xxxx Kev but beginning to be hard to get at because of my ongoing problem with static electricity giving me a boot everytime, which is often, I go to open the frig door.
Maybe if I change to Super instead of mid strength it will deaden the shock? Cheers

Hey Kev.

I had my recall done in Cairns when they did some work for me on holidays.

When I put the car in I told them that if they needed to do the brakes or wheel bearings, there was a set of each on the front seat, along with the grease I would like you to use.

When I picked the car up the spare stuff was still on the seat.

Cheers Steve.

Got mine done when they did the 70,000k service. Replaced studs and repacked hubs.
NO mention of bearings and at about $400 I believe, I guess they arent giving them away

Gday Kev,

When I had mine done, they just replaced the bolts as required under the recall, and didn't touch the bearings.

Hi Kev,
Bob got his done last year, the cost for the "bearing re-pack" was $160.

When they do the recall, the bearings have to be disturbed to remove the hubs. However, I have had to adjust the passenger front bearing since. (did it myself)
