emo Daihatsu Midget II - who knows anything about them??

07 Jan 2016 22:35 #25600

Does anyone have any info on where is best to obtain parts for a Daihatsu Midget II? We have a 1998 Midget II cargo that is due a service, we have only had it a year so haven't serviced it before ( the garage we bought from serviced it last). I have tracked down what I believe is the right oil filter here:

I haven't been able to find any other parts listed for the vehicle, at present I don't think it needs any but would be good to know where to get the likes of brake shoes, etc from. I'm not sure if it shares any parts with with anything a bit more mainstream?

Any info would be much appreciated!

Have you tried getting parts directly from the Daihatsu UK parts department? They should be able to help you providing you have a part number, however they can be a bit of a pain to deal with sometimes.

Alternatively, you can import parts specifically from using Japanese auction sites such as Buyee or Jauce (they both operate through Yahoo Auctions Japan). You should be able to find general service parts here. Again, providing you know what you’re looking for then it might not be too difficult, but you do have to pay shipping from Japan, a “bidding service fee” for using the sites to go through Yahoo Auctions, and whatever charges UK customs decide they want to put on the items you’ve bought, which they may or may not do.

I'd assumed Daihatsu UK wouldn't be any use due to the age and obscurity of the vehicle but will certainly give them a go first.

Does anyone know if the 660cc engine is that same as the Hijet / Extol?
