Hey, friends. It's Len here at 1A auto. Today, I'm working on a 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser. I want to show you how to remove the coolant reservoir. It's going to be a very easy job. If you need any parts, you can always check us out at 1aauto.com. Thanks.

All right. Get this off of here. That gives us access to get to right here. Use a 10 millimeter. One bolt: set this aside. Grab this one. Bolt number two. Same as number one, set it aside. And our last bolt right over here continuing with our 10 millimeter. Number three, same as the other two. Can't mix those up. We'll grab our reservoir and set this aside.

So here we go. We're going to install our coolant reservoir. Let's line up the holes. We've got our three bolts. I'm going to start them all in before I go ahead and tighten any of them down.

There we are. We'll tighten these down. Okay. Start with the hardest one to get to, because why not? Feels like it's getting close. Okay, it bottomed a teeny bit. Here we go. I'm just going to grab the other two.

Bottomed. There it is. Let's move to the next step. Time to install this. This hose lines up with this and slides right on there. It's going to close right up. Of course, we're going to fill it first, but just to show you it clips on there. Easy peasy.
