SOURCE: we are putting a clutch

Hi. Welcome to FixYa. I will do my best to assist you, with the hopes that you will award me with a FixYa rating for my assistance.

What I do, in my service department, is to pull the transmission and the transfer case as on unit. It is faster, and much simpler. There is no reason to pull them separately. That is way too much work.

I hope that this helps you out.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

SOURCE: replace front brake pad 2003 toyota 4 runner

Diagram is unnecessry.
Pull both front wheels
Work one at a time leaving the other for reference
Find the retention spring ... its a paperclip thickness wire spring... dislodge center retention loop and undo from both ends which engage brake pad retention rods.
Pull the rods out
Pull the old pads out... laying everything on the ground
Use scrap wooden wedges to pry between the rotor and the caliper ...inside and out until the calipers are fully withdrawn. Use the new pads to measure if they are far enough back.
Note... the brake fluid will have dropped in the master cylinder over many months of wear... do not fill it. When the calipers are pushed back they will fill the reservoir again... one wheel at a time.
Be sure to identify the correct pad based on what you took out and what is on the other side (if you screwed up the layout)
Make sure to take the old antisqueek backing plate from the old pad and place it on the new pad. They don't use lubricant on these anymore.
Replace the pads... the retention rods... then the retention spring
Do the other side
Then progressively step on the brake peddle until full tension is felt
Check the master cylinder reservoir... probably needs no additional fluid.
New pads will register in existing ridges in each disc in no time at all.
You should check the discs to see if they need to be replaced during this operation...using some calipers

Does it keep running all the time and you just want it to stay up. They"re not that hard to replace.
The radio power triggers the antenna and the ant motor can be disconnected in the pass wheel well.

SOURCE: water leak under the intake manifold,1995 toyota 4 runner

There is a heater core bypass pipe that runs from the block (under the manifold) to the bacl of theengine where you will see a flat rectangular "sheet metal" thing with a pipe coming out of it. The a rubber hose connects. You need to pull the top air plenums and intake to get to it. The p[ipe flange bolts to the block with silicone rtv as a sealant.

4 wheel drive on 2007 4 Runner will not engage

There are several actuators on a 4thGen 4Runner. They are expensive to replace. The 4WD high and low and difflock MUST be exercised or the actuators will get gummed up and not operate. A good rule is to run the 4WD (all modes) for a while every month.
If they fail, they have to be replaced. The front actuator at a dealership may cost $700 to $800. The actuator on the transfer case that switches it to 4-Low could be as much as $2500 as the whole transfer case has to be taken out and rebuilt.
I *strongly* suggest having this done by a mechanic that knows what they're doing with 4Runers.
You've probably already found this out.

I have an 01 Tacoma that sticks going in and out of 4wd. my Toyota mechanic says it needs a new actuator. If we tap on it it will go in and out. Remove shield and bang on it. expensive part. Is it part of...

There are actually two actuators, one is located in the transfer case and one on the front differential. the one on the transfer case provides power to both front and rear driveshafts, the front actuator must engage so that the front differential locks and provide traction to the front wheels. This means that even if the transfer case is engaged in 4x4 mode the front wheels will not have traction if the front diff actuator is not working.

The 4x4 does not shift into 4 wheel drive not 4 hi or 4 low

Check the fuse to the 4x4, if the fuse is good then check the 4x4 electric motor actuator on the transfer case. You should hear it work from 2wd, 4hi to 4low and back to 2wd with the push of the switch. if you don't hear it working then check the wire harness at the actuator motor, look for any damages like corrosion or cracked wire connector clips. If the 4x4 actuator is working on the transfer case, then the front hub 4x4 actuator may have gone bad and that's located on the front differential. It's common for the clip there to corrode and break and is an easy fix with a new collar pin, at worst it's the diaphragm on the vacuum actuator that is located under the battery tray. There is a vacuum switch on the top of the transfer case, driver side but when that fails, your front hub stay's locked in the on position. Good luck and keep me posted and hope it's a simple fuse that has gone bad. You can pick up all these parts at Auto Zone or Parts Source and they will have the step by step instructions for you to get the job done with common tools.

Is there a fuse that controls the 4 wheel driveon a 92 runner

Many older trucks engage the 4x4 with vacuum lines. I would check for a leak or clog going to your transfer case. Fuses....I'm guessing none involved.
