REv 5 spoiler seals - a solution

Postby Hot-Lemon » Tue May 28, 2013 8:18 pm

Starting my own thread (apols shinny / mods) trying to revive another thread became too confusing :no:

Popped to Mr T's to order some Rev5 spoiler seals. Parts man always helpful and knows me by name, however not convinced he's entirely correct this time so i told him i'd check with the gurus / Yoda's first;

parts no. for boot lid to spoiler seals
T76887-17020 @ 8.77 + VAT
T76881-17020 @ 4.47 + VAT

Price anomoly gave me a suspicious mind (thank you very much, ha hun :facepalm: )

Is the codes quoted by HM below, still current or like shinny in another thread i might get stuck with the wrong ones.

just wondering what i need to make my rev 3 look more like a rev 5,

also will a rev 5 spoiler fit and what is required to change the rev 3 one one to rev 5?


Clear indicators will fit straight in but you might have to file down a few notches/tabs for the indicator bulb holders if they are UK spec and yours are JDM - pretty easy. Rev4+ inidicator units are the best looking IMHO over the cheap and tacky looking e-bay "Crystal" units :th:

Rev 5 spoiler will fit the Rev 3 spoiler holes, but I'd recommend getting some new spoiler seals from Mr-T.

***BEWARE*** - the MR-T parts catalogue doesn't list the correct part description which is this for both:

Protector, RR

They have two different part numbers however, that are correct which are:

76881-17020
76882-17020

Which is the set for both sides, so make sure you order by part number and are not talking to a parts desk monkey. If they don't order by part numbers - ask to speak to someone else. I got mine from my local Mr-T delivered to my house for less than £5 a side including p&p
:th:

Skirts and air vents are all the same as Rev3 (unless you are talking about turbo engine lids which have raised vents compared to the N/A).

They are still correct Heather. Both of the part numbers have a description of 'PROTECTOR, RR' which is why people are normally sent two of the same side, as 76882 should actually read 'PROTECTOR, LR' ;)

Or is that the other way round :blush:

Took me 3 times to get it right from my Toyota Dealership, but we got there in the end by ordering each seal separately by the part numbers when we found them eventually. Kudos to my parts bloke for spending an age finding them and the reason why but he did :th:

I'll upload a PIC at work tomorrow for you too.

Just thought i'd add a bit more info to this thread....

Armed with the two part nos. for the right and left seals I went back to Mr T; his parts ordering accepted 76881-17020 no problem however 76882-17020 kept referrring back to 76881-17020.

I think it must be to cut down on the number of parts they maintain / carry they no longer supply 76882-17020 so you have to order two of 76881-17020 (alegedly interchangeable).

This seems ok until they arrive and you realise that one side of the seal is adhesive which means the one is stuck to the spoiler the other stuck to your, potentially repainted, boot lid :facepalm: we'll done Mr T another winner.

Faced with this dilema I did my best Penelope Pitstop (childhood heroine) impression Hialp..Hialp... Shiny like the Anthill mob :th: came to my rescue; what you need to do is peel the adhesive of one of the seals and apply double sided tape to the reverse side - says he.

This actually is easier than it sounds you pick at one edge of the adhesive and once the edge is free you roll up the adhesive by rolling in one direction. The adhesive is a laminate with a thin plastic sheet in the middle.

To relieve the boredom you try to do the peeling the skin off an apple in one piece thing.

taa daa :bleh: one piece

Now all you have to do is cover it in double sided tape; remembering to turn it over first. I only had 1 inch tape available so its a bit of a mosaic.

Image

There you have it right and left seals that'll stick to the spoiler leg and not the boot lid.

Thanks to Shiny for his elegant solution :clapping: Top man that Mark :cool1:
