Hi everyone,

I've been trying to find out whether there's such a beast: the workshop repair manual for the troopies - 2007 and upwards.

I see that most of the available manuals stop at 2007, and after that, bugger if I can find anything. I seem to get some leads which send me to TIS (Toyota Information Service) which is a subscription thing... but then again - they only seem to be addressing the US-of-A models.

Can anyone point me in the right direction there?


Thanks,
Ino!~

I haven't seen an aftermarket manual for the V8 diesel. I've been in this situation in the past and figured that you won't need a specific manual until you've owned it a couple of years.

The Gregorys #520 and Ellery's manuals will cover everything on your vehicle except the motor and its electrics. I don't know what you can get from Toyota but expect you'd be able to buy the engine manual for a small fortune or maybe a CD.

Well... it's one of those things - if one must - one has to.

Plus that, when you don't have them and you need them, you realize that the price is really not all that bad.

I know this doesn't help you but it can be a good idea to get the dealer to include it with the vehicle when buying new, include it in the price negotiation.
Quite often the sales people have no idea what the parts section charges for them and you can get it thrown into the deal.

There's a CD available from Toyota, Part No: SCO580E

I believe it covers 7x Series Landcruisers from the late 90's through to the current V8 diesels.

You should pay about $160 for it and my sources tell me some Toyota dealers will argue about its existence so stand your ground.

Bloody awesome timing! I just got off the phone with the local Toyota guys and it looks like it took them about 45 minutes to track it down. I can confirm that it is the part number you specified and the retail price is $168

I'm off to put an order through for it.

Cheers and thanks a lot,

Ino!~

Allright! That was quick!

I have the CD now and it looks like it's quite good. Jam-packed with information which makes a lot of sense. (As opposed to the doco I once got from Holden for the Astra series - sheesh! Talk about insanity in action!).

Cheers,
Ino!~
