Toyota Hydraulic Clutch Assembly Maintenance

Remove the lower portion of the dash (four 10MM bolts on a third generation 4Runner) and the associated wiring plugs, cables, etc. Take care to list or photograph the assemblies in the assembled condition if you feel that you can't keep track of "what goes where." Removing the panel is necessary unless you have the hands of a three year old and the arms of Manute Bol.

Remove the cotter pin holding the cross pin through the clutch pedal and push the cross pin through the pedal assembly. You may need to depress the pedal slightly to release the tension off of the cross pin. Retain the cotter pin and the cross pin, these will be re-used in the replacement process.

Toyota 3.4L V6 Timing Belt Replacement

To do this successfully at home you will need an assortment of hand tools, a 250 foot pound torque wrench, Snap-On tool number YA9730, a special tool to hold the crankshaft pulley, help from a friend, and considerable experience working on vehicles. The factory timing belt is less than $50, but most owners want to replace the water pump, thermostat, and all the drive belts such as the alternator, power steering, and air conditioning (if equipped). These additional parts, along with supplies such as coolant and sealant will put the total cost close to $200, which is typically about fifty bucks less than what a dealer would charge to replace just the belt.
