Spare parts not made anymore


Recommended Posts

My Alphard has failed its mot, Toyota are saying they dont make the front headlight covers or the windscreen jets  anymore for a 2003 Alphard Hybrid. Any ideas

Also it needs new drop links, Toyota are quoting £470, is this an ok price

I expect you'll get a response from Picasso on this.

 

I can't believe the windscreen jets cannot be bought from somewhere.

 

Have you tried Alibaba or Amayama ?

I just bought brand new washer jets from Amayama, as I damaged one of mine trying to adjust and unblock it.  They were not Toyota branded but were Denso parts (so identical to the factory item).  Took a little while to come (as sourced and sent in Japan) but very much available!

They are'nt cheap to buy. I still have not dealt with the condensation inside the glass lense on my nearside one. I have a few jobs stacking up when I find the time and its not raining

 

Have you tried a hair dryer ?

No Roger, its finding the time to do it and its not raining. I have a funnel, hose pipe and a hair dryer. I did try to get one of the bulbs out but could not do it in fear of breaking it. I will wait till we get some better weather and try again

Worth noting as well that some Alphards have tinted headlamps.....if they look a little bronzed that's not actually a problem.  Mine are and they still look that way even when polished up.
