    I just pulled one out of a 98 for my 96. I paid 6 bucks for it. I haven't installed it yet. But, it looks like that.

    I have no idea how Amazon figures out what fits what year I never trust it.

    Look up the part number on the manufactures catalog order by that is what I do

    Agreed. I just stay away from them for auto parts.

    Agreed Amazon is not the best source for auto parts. The seller's fitment lists 98-04. Toyota lists the same two part numbers for 95 & 04. One includes the low level sensor & one does not. Both have the hole for it. My 95 does not have the sensor or the hole. This leads me to think the bottles will "fit" all 1st gens & I can just plug the hole?

    I would plug the hole. the one I got from the junkyard has the sensor on it. I am just leaving it, but the old one doesn't have a sensor or hole. I haven't finished mine yet, because 2 of the 4 bolts that hold it on broke. I was going to drill them out today, but other events happened first. Perhaps tomorrow... I will let you know how it goes.

    i did it yesterday.

    video is pretty accurate.
    my container came with new pump though, and a grommet where additional hole is at bottom:

    so i went to autozone and bough this master cylinder gasket, which fits right into grommet, i used gasket maker to create seal and let it sit overnight.

    [​IMG]

    next morning put some more gasket maker on to container and put in grommet into container.

    installed container as usual.

    hope that helps.
