Rear Diff Breather Mod

Pretty simple but thought I'd put it up anyway.

1. Pick these two parts up from Toyota Dealership
Toyota 90930-03136: 5/16 Barb
Toyota 90404-51026: M10 x 1.00 Thread Pitch, 1/4 Barb

2. Pick 10-12 of 1/4" Inner Diameter tubing from ACE.

3. Pick up 2 small hose clamps

4. Remove right rear tail light assembly (2 bolts, then pry gently as there are two plastic clips)

5. Run tubing behind bumper along frame rail and over exhaust heat shield. Ziptie as necessary.
 
6. Put new filter on taillight side.

7. Secure to tail light assembly using existing clips.

8. Remove breather from axel housing.

9. Fit tubing over breather, secure with small hose clamp.

THIS WORKS WITH A M226 AXLE. I AM NOT POSITIVE IF IT WORKS WITH A C200K AXLE. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR X.

Hugh, get on this!

Jo-BOB:
is there any specific type of tubing needed or is recommended?

Azfronty99:
Do they come factory with a filter?

DBAX:
OME is a one way "blow off valve" which stands maybe 1.5" over the axle. It's designed to let pressure (gasses) out when built up, and re-seal when none present. When I did this mod years ago,  I ran the tubing up into my brake light housing and topped it w/ a small fish tank filter. Sometimes I go in deep water..
