Thanks Grant for the input. I would like to see if anybody has encountered this level, because of the specific wording that Toyota used to describe the none specific specs.

David is it a 3.5mm hex ? I have found several manufacturers use this for radar sensor adjustment... if so i got mine in miller tool kit #10243. Honda and Chrysler both use this kit.

Any level gauge can be used that will fit directly on top of the sensor and not touch any other object can be used. If you don't have one, you can get a small square block (make sure it is 100% square, at least the bottom and top areas) and place it on top of the sensor, then place the level on top of that.

Thanks Bob for your reply. Know I am wondering about the illustration provided in the TIS millimeter wave radar sensor adjustment. Was the level shown actually a part of the sensor bracket?
