When mine started leaking I found that I was the second to fix this. Half of the tube assembly was missing. The drivers side was cut off and patched and only the passenger side of the tubes were left. I pulled all the old patch BS out and ran new rubber hose from the radiator to the rubber lines on the passenger side.

This looks like what you are looking for, I know is says for earlier model, wish there was a part #.

FYI....this is not the right one for 2010 FJ. This is as indicated in the ebay posting that you linked to...for 07-09 FJ. My 2010 is different and just like the picture that @DrikaK9 posted in the other thread. I also posted the part number and the part schematic that he needs. It's as simple as ordering it from an online Toyota OEM parts dealer or his local Toyota dealer.

Came in today... perfect match. Next to it is the one I got from parts store and what the dealership told me was the correct one based off of VIN over the phone. As can be seen, quite the difference

I was thinking of hitting them with some Rustoleum.... just an extra layer of ANYTHING to combat the salt!! Stock skid plate has huge hole in it after this last winter... not useable. Ordered an RCI

Re: replacing trans cooler lines

Replaced the lines on my 2007 last year. They did not look as rusty as yours but were covered in oil and assumed to be leaking. Once I removed the part I was able to find a very small crack were one of the tubes was welded to its bracket.

Ordered part from Rockauto and it was a perfect match. I used some similar sized steel bars to create plugs for the rubber hoses. Disconnected the lines starting at the highest point first. This way the fluid would gravity drain back to the transmission. When disconnecting the lines at the bottom of the radiator and closest to the transmission be prepared,once you remove the hose form the line, to hold the open end as high as possible to avoid draining oil then insert plug. The hose/plug only needs a friction fit as nothing is pressurized. I did spill some oil but very little. Once all the lines are disconnected replace the part. Reverse process in attaching new lines. You can add a 100 or 200ml back into the new lines before you close the last tube. That small quantity will not make a difference as there should be about 5 litres in total in the tranny. Don't worry about air entering the system as it is vented anyway.

Only do the above when the engine and oil temperate are at ambient. You really don't want hot transmission oil running down your forearms

You can warm up your transmission and check the oil later.

If you want to get the right part, I would just order it from @[email protected] from Cool Springs Toyota and he can ensure they get the right part before they ship it out to you.
That's what I'm here for.
