I've just joined the forum, i had a quick look and couldn't find any relevant posts, so i thought i would ask.
I've got a 2014 rav 4 2.4, with the auto tail gate, it's been a drama since i bought the car, on a good day it stops when opening an closing, on a bad day it refuses to open. I'm patient with it and never force it, i was wondering if any had any tips to fix it? i am assuming it needs the struts replaced....they seem expensive, and honestly i would probably prefer swap them out for manual struts if that's possible ?
I've also got a leaking water pump, i mean im assuming its the pump, it's a common problem with them? the coolant is hitting the belt and going everywhere. are they hard to replace ? anything out of the ordinary with them?
thanks in advance
