    Hi folks! I have a 2005 Tacoma prerunner that has bent tubes going into the thermal expansion valve (it's the part with the stubby tubes that screws into it), does anybody know what this piece is called and where to get a new one?

    It does help but I'm looking for the connection tube part as mine is bent, I've looked everywhere and no one seems to have a new one

    You need the manifold (two tubes built into a flange) that bolts to the TEV? I believe that is considered part of the TEV and is included with it under the OE part number. 88515-04060

    No worries. That what questions are for. To ask something you dont know.
    I will make one note though. If you buy non-OEM TEV, I doubt it will come with the tubes. Probably just a pair of o-rings.
