    Re: Full time 4wheel or Rear wheel

    I really don't want to jinx myself, but having done a couple of kilometres since the recalibration, I have to say the box changes smoother than ever. Even better than when new. I get the impression...
  3. Re: Where can I get a replacement 2012 Toyota Fortuner gaiter?

    Sparnar are you talking about the leather/vinyl section which is visible or the actual rubber one fitted underneath to seal off from the outside?

    I've repaired mine years ago very successfully with two pack epoxy. Depending on the damage it might be worth a try. Or look at Gemini or N1 4x4 for 2nd hand

    Re: DSG gearbox

    Got my car back. Dealership admitted they might have screwed up the calibration procedure. Even the two keys had to be recalibrated! Box is very smooth now, hopefully this is the end!

    Re: Propshaft alignment

    Do you really think R4400 is too much? I won't ever buy one since it is not something I will use, but it sounds reasonable in today's crazy world.
