    Default 2007 100 4.7 VX Rear wheel/axle bearing replacement

    I've been to close to 10 shops and they all say they can do rear bearing but has never done it. Surely my LC isnt the first that needs rear bearings.


    Apparently a specific tool for a press is needed


    Who in Pretoria can assists with replacing bearings?

    Not cone bearing like 80 and 105 series

    I've never worked on a VX 100 rear axle but I am surprised to hear it's different. I'll ask on LCCSA to find out if someone knows anything.
    There is never a right time to do the wrong thing and never a wrong time to do the right thing!

    To the best of my knowledge the rear axle on the 4.7 100series is exactly the same as the 105 and the 80..... but I may be mistaken. Have been told that the grey import “Cygnus” versions have a different diff/axle set up though.

    is yours a local model or a grey import?

    The 4.7 With Independant front suspension had a completely different Setup than the other Cruisers. It had a Hub Type Bearing whereas the others had Cup and Cone Bearings!

    Here is Parts of the Official W/Shop Repair Manual!
    It looks like any competent Shop should be able to do this even if Toyota talks of special Tools! ( mostly adaptors for the press)
    Hope this helps.

    Okay cool. Learned something new today again. I thought it was only the Cygnus that had that set up.

    As mentioned above. Any decent workshop can sort this out. Lots of modern cars run these type of bearings. Sometimes they are really stuck in there though, and your typical 2 ton home press is not up to task, but a 10 ton shop press should be more than adequate

    Some other question about Landcruiser bearings.Is it necessary to repack my 2007 Cruiser 105 GX bearings on 200000 km if it was done on 160000 km? According to the Toyota dealer and the service book it must be done every 40000km. The car did not work the last 40000km. I do not tow anything. The cost is nearly R8000.00!!

    This is more for preventative maintenance! If the car does not work hard you could probably skip it every now and then! We do it on the Pickups every 20000 km but they are generally worked very hard. Another problem that needs to be adressed at these repacking sessions is water ingress wich is why all the seals also get replaced! 8000.00 for bearing repacking is however very excessive , that is about what whe ask for a complete major service on the Cruiser. If there is no play on the bearings and you can hear no noise from them ( and you didn't through deep water ) you are probably save !

    Not in Pretoria, and if not to far try
    Anton Wessels / Wessels Motors in Pomona (http://www.wesselsmotors.co.za/)
    Toyo Service Centre, Krugersdorp (speak to Ralph) (https://toyo.co.za/)

    Both these indies are recommended on Land Cruiser Club - I have no personal experience with either of them
