Nothing comes up in search. So, my question do MR Ben FL cables actually fit?

If not, can someone point me in the right direction to what other cables will fit, brake parks uk sell front line items.

Last resort is Toyota.

Not sure what BENs ones are, but i wouldnt fit anything other than geniune ones, some bad aftermarket ones out there.

Try TCB parts for genuine ones cheaper than main dealer.
2004 FL, Black, Matt Brace, Team Dynamics Monza R, Tein Springs, TTE Exhaust, heated black leather seats, black leather armrest,  Zunsport grills, Midship front badge,  TRD spoiler, Halo DRLs with LED fogs, large clear wind defector, Krissg kick panels,  small mongos.

I bought FL cables off Autodoc (they specify pre FL and FL via a date). They were cheap and they got me through the MOT.

I once bought shock gaiters from mr2ben, I thought I was buying genuine toyota ones but they were definitely not when they arrived. I would much prefer to buy from TCB and he doesnt stock things that he doesnt have faith in.

Although I did buy front shock gaiters from Autodoc and they were identical to ( what was left of ) the OE ones.

Found the below. Will give them a go as I only need a N/S cable, and ebay has 20% off so only £27.

The below also states the Borg & Beck (frontline) cables fit

For the work involved. At £27.
Is it not false economy not to do both.

Not really, when the O/S was done not so long ago and is working fine.

Good advice but seemingly (#10) a little too late!
