    Pretty easy to replace this sensor? My A/C blinks sporadically and I've already replaced the relay as well.

    I used 3m 5200, its a marine polyurethane. They make it in a couple different cure times and bond strengths. The stuff works wonders for sealing things up, I use it on commercial fishing boats all the time.

    It was a pain in the ass, but more than doable. My patience was already running low when I started the job so you’ll probably be much better off than me. I think I was able to finagle the old sensor off in under an hour. Use a flat head screwdriver to disengage the sensor connection point and be super patient.
    If you shop around on Toyota online parts you can find a sensor for around $90.00. I think MSRP is $120.00.

    Didn’t want to leave you hanging with out the full scope, there is one screw you have to finagle as well. Good luck!

    I had a ‘16 and traded it for a ‘17. 14 months after trading for the ‘17, I got rid of it and bought a ‘10. Im happier with the 2nd gen for sure!

    I use 5200 often and it's amazing stuff. I had to learn to be careful in applying it since it sticks like heck to everything and things can get out of hand fast. I seal spear gun parts with it and it keeps things air tight down past 100' in the water. For cleanup, alcohol, but I'm sure you know that already.

    No matter how hard I try, I just do not like the 3rd gens. Yeah, I test drive a new one when they come out every year. But, it’s just not for me. I plan on keeping my 2015 for the rest of my life. I love the damn thing. And here’s what Scotty has to say....

    Haha, I hear ya! The 2nd gen is so much peppier than the turd gen. There were and I think still too many issues with the 3rd gen. Gotta listen to Scotty!

    I like Toyota Parts Deal and Boch Toyota South, they seem to be pretty close on most items and I'll usually fill my cart at each and go with the cheaper one once shipping is calculated.
