For those of you that have replaced the differential and transfer case fluids and replaced the crush washers, where do you pick up the washers? Dealer wanted way too much and quoted different part numbers.

Thanks

I went to a Toyota dealer and they charged me something like $1.77 for the little crush washer. I actually paid because I didn't where else to go.

I'll probably get them from the dealership but they were nice enough to give me 6 or 7 for the engine oil plug when I bought 3 filters from them.

How much is too much? I bought all of mine (transmission, transfer care, rear diff, and front diff) from the dealership for less than $13, including tax, which seemed cheap to me.

I just replaced my rear diff fluid and the washer stuck to the diff then when I wasn't looking it jumped into the oil bucket. So now the drain plug doesn't have one, it don't leak (I got really lucky).

My local stealership normally throws them in for free if you buy fluids or filters from them...

They don't really track the washers count so they don't loose any $$

Had to revive an old thread. I was just quoted $56.?? for t-case, diffs, trans washers. There must be someone who sells these online. I was looking to do my 60k this week and realized the fluids were only inspected at my 30k.

Crush washers are normally just a copper washer, which you can pick up at most hardware stores. Only thing you need to know is the size, but by bypassing the dealer you can get an assortment and still be $$$ ahead.

You can heat them on a stove top, let them turn red and air cool to ambient air temp and that will anneal them and you can reuse them. The copper work hardens from being torqued and the heat softens the copper.

Regards,

John

You can buy an assortment of copper crush washers at harbor freight tools pretty reasonable.
