    After having the frame replaced free (cost them more than I paid for the truck)
    I suppose there r many others

    This part is no longer made, nor can it be repaired as far as I know
    I imagine there are other parts hard to get for those who love their trucks.
    Maybe some kind of 'save the toy' group could be formed o_O

    Has anyone replaced this part
    If so, step by step how did u do it.

    Disconnect the lines
    Unplug connector
    Unbolt actuator from body.

    Reverse steps for installation.

    BUT……you really need a scan tool to bleed the system.
    You need to activate the ABS module to purge the air.
    You will never get all the air out doing a traditional bleed.

    What's wrong with it that you believe it needs to be replaced? They don't fail very often.

    I took it to the toyota dealer mechanics paid $$$ and that is what they told me

    I am not sure they don't fail often but on ebay they are selling a lot of them

    Thanks for those links I will look through them before we start.

    I did a page about this truck from the first day I had it

    Tell me about scan tools
    I guess you plug it into a socket and some work on different models of cars
    I have some left over money on Amazon is there a scanner that could be bought for less than $200

    Rght is what they sent me, guessing the brackets would be removed because they exist on the truck, red plugs there to protect the threads, in the engine there must be a latch on the wiring harness that flips up


    Thanks

    I have that thing and it likes to disable part of the TPMS on my Subaru to which I have to have the dealer reset with their scan tool. Not saying its a bad tool but I would recommend that anyone considering it first call Autel technical and ask some specific questions about your application.
