Afternoon,

I'm after a Rev 5 turbo steering cowl. I've been told that they're different to the others.

If anyone's got one laying around not being used, that'd be great!

Cheers,

I've absolutely no idea - someone from here say it was different to the rest of them...

To be fair, i've got 2 cowls and neither of them fit..

We're talking about the plastic trim that covers the steering column out of which pokes the indicator and wiper stalks? Because the EPC shows no evidence of a different part number beyond a change from rev2 to rev3. (The rev5 JDM cars did get a different steering wheel though)

That's the one.

How strange. Perhaps I've got earlier revision versions and all I need is a Rev 3+ one...

Check the part number or maybe someone here can confirm.

Having gone through this exercise a nuber of years ago I can confirm that only the rev5 cowl will fit a rev5 import. The issue is the fit to the steering wheel as only the rev5 import has the 3 spoke gen6 celica type wheel. If you're using an aftermarket wheel it may not be a problem.

In which case that one won't fit as I've never broken a rev5.

There is a difference with Rev4 and Rev5 Japan market.

Rev3 (11/1993 - 06/1996)
45287-17916-22
http://japan-parts.eu/toyota/jp/1995/mr2/sw20-acmzz/4_211120_002_/powertrain-chassis/4501_steering-column-shaft#45286

Rev4/Rev5 (06/1996 - EOP)
As well as the above PN, 45287-17917-22 is also listed.

We tried to fit a UK Rev5 cover to a Japan market Rev4 - it didn't fit.

Do you think a Rev 5 UK would fit a Rev 5 import?

No mate it will not. The major difference is the cut out for the clock spring. They simply do not fit. It took me 6 months to get one in the end direct from Japan and it cost me a pretty penny.

Could I get another? Probably but it wouldn't be cheap, I'm talking brand new ones btw. I only found one second hand and someone had painted it white and wanted silly money for it.

Your alternative is to change to a UK clock spring. Much more widely available over here.

Thanks for the info Kirk.

This is turning out to be a complete headache, especially for a little bit of plastic!

Where abouts did you get yours from and how much did it cost? If you don't mind me asking.

Cheers!

Unlikely they'll produce a a Rev5 Japan market compatible version seeing as they are UK based and those cars aren't even eligible for US import for another few years yet!

In the end it cost me £150 when it eventually landed.

I used my various contacts to find it for me. Eventually came good. The single biggest headache I've had with this car.
