Master Cylinder

I have a 2007 FJ out of warranty. Dealership wants to charge $2100 for brake master cylinder part number 4705035052. I was able to find a FJ at a local junk yard. Cost for the part if I took it off myself is $200. Seems like a no brainer to me. The only issue is if I do get a used master cylinder it needs to be installed at a dealership. Has anyone else tried to replace the master cylinder on their own?

Re: Master Cylinder

have you checked at a local auto parts store? I would think you could get a rebuilt one there and then do a core exchange and it would be more reliable than a junkyard and cheaper than the dealership.

Re: Master Cylinder

I'm taking it off a salvaged FJ with 4000 miles. Part looks good but before I buy it I need to find out if I can install it or have to go into a dealership to get it installed.

Re: Master Cylinder

According to the service manual the dealer has to hook it up to bleed the MC after install. Not sure if you could get all the air out the old fashioned way :shrug:

Quote:
FSM instructions on how to bleed the master cylinder:

4. BLEED MASTER CYLINDER SOLENOID
HINT:
If the brake master cylinder is disassembled, the brake line is disconnected from the brake master cylinder or if the reservoir becomes empty, bleed the brake master cylinder.
(a) Connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3.
(b) Turn the ignition switch to ON.
(c) Select "ACTIVE TEST" mode on the intelligent
tester.
(d) Connect the vinyl tube to the rear brake caliper.
(e) Loosen the bleeder plug.
(f) Select "SRMF" to drive the solenoids and bleed air
from the rear brake caliper (step F).
NOTICE:
• Do not depress the brake pedal.
• Keep the brake fluid in the reservoir tank
above the MIN line during the above
procedures.
HINT:
• Brake fluid is sent through the pump.

BRAKE – BRAKE FLUID
BR–7
• To protect the solenoids, the intelligent tester turns OFF automatically 2 seconds after every solenoid has been turned ON.
(g) Repeat step F until all the air in the brake fluid is bled out.
(h) When the air is completely bled out of the brake fluid through the bleeder plug, tighten the bleeder plug. Torque: 11 N*m (110 kgf*cm, 8 ft.*lbf)
(i) Repeat the above procedures to bleed the other brake line.
(j) Turn the ignition switch to OFF.
(k) Turn the ignition switch to ON.
(l) Clear DTC (see page BC-45).
