Hi all,
Just finished replacing two aftermarket cam seals on me 4by, but notised a bit of movement in the bearing for the fan. The housing looks the same as the old water pump type without the impeller at the rear also has lrge flat area with legs/spacers to allow the timing belt to run behind it, it looks like the bearing may be pressed out? i hope so because toyota quoted me $1100 for the whole housing.
Could any1 pls shed some light on this topic thnks.

Mezy I dont know about the above but if you start doing out back on corrugation driving take a spare idler arm with you . If you bust one on the track you aint got no steering. We always suggest to our tag alongers who own the same truck to pack one. This year we had one go and it took about 1/2 hour to replace.
All the best

Neil, I had the same problem last year with my v6 4runner. I had the same idea as you about getting it pressed out. It was too fragile however, and when fitted back in it just broke down completely. In the end I had to bite the bullet and bought a new one from Toyota. I ended up spending about $400 to try to get the original pressed out and still had to fork out the big bucks for a new one in the end.

For your reference it took Toyota about 6-8 weeks to get me a new one, so that meant 6-8 weeks with the 4runner idle. I wouldn't start working on it without knowing that Toyota has the part in stock in Australia.

Neil, the housing was around $1200 from Toyota. They had to order it in specially. It happened last year and from memory, it was around the 150 000km.
My machanic installed it for free as the whole trying to cut corners was his idea and it didn't work out.

Good luck with it mate, I'd probably look to replace it before a major trip. As I mentioned earlier, it too almost 6 weeks for Toyota to get one in. That was after telling me that they had one in the country which turned out to be a computer error.
