    Hi Barry

    If you have keys that work, any decent locksmith can help you. They read the transponder from functioning key. They will then cut the transponder key for you and then swap the internals into the new case and blade. The flip key had to have a transponder added to it using the same principle.

    I will add two links below which worked programming a key, depends on your year model. You can use this if you also need to get new internals for the key.

    For anyone interested. I used this video to program my one key with new internals:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XPoZ0hbyLvo\

    I got mine right with the above video as I have a 1999 model. However directly below is another video I found that I was going to try. Best of luck! Mine took three attempts

    Link below for 2002-2007 100 series:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQp2wsAaceI

    @fips, this is also for you. So as long as you have a key that works, a locksmith can read the transponder, cut a new key and program the transponder so it will start car etc. The above videos help with the programming of the remote.

    Reading with great interest, I am also a year into a 105 build up here in Zambia, except a HZJ105.

    Keen to see where the build leads to and how you tackle some of the issues.

    Are you expecting the new steering damper to eliminate the free play in the steer? I've also go this issue.

    Thanks Mike

    Seems like my local, very well known lock smith, can not just do a new key, i gave them a call, maybe i should go there and show them, they suggested i go to the dealers, so i will probably have to try and do it myself.

    Thanks for the links

    I am sure it is going to make a difference. There is substantial play in my bushes alone on my steering damper. I will be fitting the new one this weekend so I will provide some feedback next week on it.

    That is very unfortunate. However my locksmith did say that I would have to take my completely new remote to Toyota for programming. I then found the links above and got it right.

    Our locksmith is an old school oom who I think has been around for all the changes of keys and remotes.

    Thanks i think i will give it a go.

    as for steering damper, i replaced my aftermarket ironman damper a couple of months ago with a toughdog self correcting damper, just to see the difference. I do have an lift with castor correction done though. I think the tough dog is quite cool, once set up proper in center position it cruises very well. I can not say that it has made a huge difference, but like i said i do have a castor correction so the cruiser is pretty well behaved.

    Iíve basically just got a 30mm lift with old man emu suspension.

    And the vehicle is fairly well behaved with a little play in the wheel but if you go over a rough patch or rumble strips it isnít very well behaved. The damper is a bit tired.

    That tough dog looks like the business. Iím sticking with OME for now and will monitor from there

    It's a 105 issue, even with standard tanks. They most probably would have used the standard pump, you can get to it through a panel on the floor in the rear.

    I have had to replace mine as well. You get a bosch replacement unit which costs half of what the toyota one does.

    the play in the steering can also be that the steering box needs to be tightened up a bit, also check the joint between steering wheel and steering box.

    I have a big bore terrafirma steering damper in mine, do like the sound of the RTC unit from tough dog though, especially with the bigger tyres.

    I just had to let you know that I have a 2002 cruiser 105 which for the past 6 years has had 125000km added to its clock!!! amazing diesel donkey with a very small turbo fitted.

    We have certainly had to spend a bit of money on her as she is much "abused" by the conditions I take her; but all worth it.

    Just back from a VERY wet-season CKGR with extremely high grass and serious bush encroachment on roads; so plenty more "bar coding" and a snorkel that has a custom - ribbed finish

    Driver window master switch and motor decided to go haywire and could not close my driver window; will be just under R10 000 to replace. Eek.

    Anyway would not trade her for the world.

    Hope you get as much fun and satisfaction as I have had.

    cheers, Charlotte

    So it has been a while since my last post and probably down to all the cussing I did when doing the work on the transfer case. I also have a new found respect for anyone who does a tutorial on a job like that. Whether it be on video or photos and a write up. I started off with the best intentions of doing one but I had already dropped a few f-bombs before I had even dropped the transfer case out of the vehicle.

    A long story short, but over the long weekend a couple of months back I did manage to do the transfer case rebuild. It was a bit of a mess inside and had definitely been opened before, incorrect shimming sizing done etc. It ended up taking the whole weekend, but this was due to some parts being jammed on etc. Put it this way, I will never do a rebuild like that again, and I mean it. I really enjoy working on my vehicles but I think due to the lack of a full comprehensive set of tools, I find no fun it after the third hour

    That being said, the vehicle is a completely different beast. No rumbling and NO knock on gear changes. What an absolute joy to drive now, with no lingering feeling of impending disaster. While I was underneath I also replaced the gearbox rear oil seal, replaced all filler and drain caps on transfer box and gearbox with new OEM parts and fresh Toyota transmission oil. The silence is golden.

    I have also fitted the new Takla seat covers and must say I am very happy with them. Really comfortable and I personally like the look that they have added to the vehicle.

    So some new jobs that I plan on tackling over the next month or two:
    Valve cover gasket
    Re-seal oil pan including the dreaded pan arch seal
    Steering damper

    I have also started the process of looking at different rear bumpers. The current one is from outback extreme and over the years has bent and is now pulling the rear bumper down and away from the body. We are also toying with the idea of taking it to the Kgalagadi in December and those corrugations will not be kind to it. All I can see is that arm breaking off on those roads.

    Any input and options or one that someone is trying to get rid of will be much appreciated?

    It will be a nice run in test for the vehicle and that also means I will get to build it a drawer system and a full 12v system install (now that makes me excited).

    Oh and two things I forgot to add for the near future additions, new exhaust (both boxes are done for) and to start adding in sound insulation into the doors and upgrade the sound system. Checking out other forums I have at least found options and ways to mount some decent sized speakers without changing the look on the outside of the door cards.
