I think they prob don't have the illustrations for the same reason ToyotaDIY does not - Toyota Motor Company sicked their lawyers on them for copyright infringement and made them take them offline. Just go check out the opening page at ToyotaDIY dot com.

I don't KNOW that is what happened - but I suspect it due to what I have read at ToyotaDIY and my own experience with "controlled obsolescence".

Toyota is like the rest of them - they don't want your to fix your car - they want you to buy a new one.

Certainly even if you want to fix your old car - they want to make it as difficult as possible for you to do it yourself - because their dealers make no money that way.

Maybe they are available for that '99 - but not for any 5th gen - and this is the verbage i refer to:

"Site news:
