Need help identifying something

Postby Fazz on Sun, 26 Jan 2014 8:22 +0000

Hey gang!

Just wondering if any other of your hilux's has this black thing under the bonnet?
It appears to be doing nothing? Maybe reinforcement?
Its pop riveted on.

I've asked around at all my local mechanics and they've never seen anything like it!
If anyone could help as to what its doing that would be great!

Cheers,
Greg

Nope. Sound proofing ? Sticker may indicate part of aircon but struggling to see how

Does it channel air a certain way ?

Isn't it that the reinforcement bracket they added in like late 07? Makes fitting a bonnet protector harder

It was a recall by Toyota due to the bonnet splitting and smashing the windscreen when driving at speed. From memory 2005 to 2007 models were affected only.
