Hi all Patrol Gurus.
I joined a couple of weeks ago, after taking delivery of my first "new" Patrol. Patrol in question is a 2001 4.5 GRX model. In excellent condition, full service history and similar. Also, since I got it at a very good price, I've got the dosh to fix her up a bit.
I dropped the vehicle off at the dealership last week as I'm in Nairobi until early February, and wanted them to go through the vehicle with a fine tooth comb and pick up any potential issues. Well, they're impressed at the condition of a 14-year-old vehicle, but there have been one or two (small) issues which have all been sorted out. The big thing is, I need a new master cylinder (part number: 46010VS40B, so they say). The dealership can order the part, but lead-time for delivery is about 8 weeks... :(
I've given them the go ahead to order the part, but it is really going to suck not having the 'trol for another 6 weeks after I get back... So, in the meantime, does anybody know where I can track down a replacement ? Are there any (good) aftermarket parts or similar ?
I've noticed that the Patrol is a lot more popular here in Kenya (I've seen a whole bunch of them - more than I've ever seen in .za), so I'm going to see whether I can track down a part here and bring one back with me, but I am not overly hopeful.
Thanks a stack.
