    Default Land Cruiser 76 V8 - first service (10,000km)

    Hi all, I got my LC76 in August and have my first service tomorrow, do you have any comments, suggestions, advice on this? I want to make sure the technician attends to all of the right stuff so have found the Toyota schedule for this service online, but any thoughts on additional things I should look at such as better / different oil, air filter etc etc?

    Tks guys

    Ask them how strict they are on re-greasing the wheel bearings all the time. Such a waste of money IMO. Some guys never drive through water. Why isn't it included in the Hilux service plan then? Probably because then Toyota must waste money on changing wheel bearing grease all the time. It starts at 20 000 km, I think.

    The dealership in the town where I work, is a little lenient. They give the option for a check only at 20 000 km, but you must still pay for the new seals. At 40 000 km you HAVE to pay for getting the grease changed.

    And of course the diff and gearboxes oils need changing too.

    I highly doubt that refers to the actual wheel bearings, I think it's more related to the "Knuckles".

    Hilux uses "Closed" C.V.'s, whereas the Cruiser have "open" Birfields.

    I had a few rattles with mine, N1 City took the whole dash out too sort out the rattle's.
    Took a few days to sort out. Am happy with the outcome though
    Kind regards

    Spoke to the dealer, they said they have to do the grease and seals etc but estimated total of R2,500 for the 10,000km service which isn't bad, would rather get everything done properly. Diff and gearbox oil they say they check but only replace if there is water etc. thks for comments

    They're yanking your chain. That's only a requirement at the 20k service and only for vehicles on the heavy duty service schedule. I've just done mine at the 40k service (after skipping it at 20k with their blessing) and they thanked me for doing them, because "no-one does it anymore". Diff oils changed at 40km and gearbox at 50k.

    10k service is merely an oil change. Mine was R1,400 for the V6 but the price difference could be down to them using synthetic on the V8 - you may want to check.
