  1. Just attempted fixing it by using 'J-B Weld 8265S Original Steel Reinforced Epoxy'. Will let you know of the result in 24 hours. :)
  2. Hi, I have successfully replaced 2 broken wind deflector roll bars mounting clips, using a new mount kit part 986-561-323-00. I had to drill the rivets out to put the new mounts in. Unfortunately, during the removal of the roll bar trims, one of them's screw broke. Anyone have any advice on how to re-attach the screw with a method which will be strong enough to keep the trim tight once re-mounted? Thanks a lot :)
  3. Thank for everyone's help. By changing the part 996-106-347-02, it has solved the problem. No more leaks :) ... for now haha
  4. Thank you to everyone for their knowledge and ideas. This is the car's second tank, I am going to try my luck with just changing the Bleed Valve, o-rings + screws and hope it will work. It's such a pain to change the tank, maybe I can wait until the next clutch job to make it easier. Anyone on their 3rd tank already?
  5. Thanks for the reply. I was hoping I don't need to replace the tank because it is a total pain, especially getting to those clips.
  6. Hi, I have googled this but seems to be a number of different answer if the Bleeding Valve would open by it self or not. In my logic, the valve should never open in order to keep the pressure. But I thought of asking before going out and order a new part. For a while I've been losing coolant after driving. The coolant is going through the tank overflow tube which drips down under the car on the passenger side. (left hand drive) I just had installed, new water pump + LN Eng. low temp. thermostat, full coolant flush, along with a new 04 coolant cap. (My last pump was a Lasso and only l
  7. Hilux2400 - Thanks a lot for that. Yes, there is a red tint on the liquid and I had to top up the coolant level recently, it dropped to minimum. I will check that area. Cheers
  8. Thanks a lot for your, I just couldn't find it on the Bentley manual and couldn't figure out the wording for search on google. Appreciate it :)
  9. Hi, I've been reading this forum for over a year but this is my first time posting, since I've finally found the courage to fix things myself :) Can someone tell me what is that 'open hose' (see picture) at the right rear of the car? I found some watery drips near that area which slightly red. I am wondering if it is coming from there or I have a leak or something else. Thanks a lot for help :) My car is a 986, 2003 S
