  1. Hi, I've just taken delivery of my 2020 Rav4 Hybrid Cruiser. I thinking of getting some roof racks and wanted to get other opinions on the brands. What are others experience with the official Toyota racks versus others such as Thule, Rhino Rack etc? Thinking mostly around noise? Thanks Neil.
  2. Hey Everyone, Toyota recently gave me a Rav4 Edge to review and I thought as owners/enthusiasts you guys would enjoy it most 🙂 Link here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixFI7SSZ9sU I'm more than happy to answer any questions you might about the car and my experiences with it! Cheers - Matt
  3. My Rav4 has developed a problem where it starts, then immediately shuts off. Once it's done this, if I try cranking it again without turning the key back to the fully off position, it turns over, but never tries to fire. However, if I turn the key back to the off position, then try again, it will start just fine, but still immediately shut off. It also won't start even if I give it a little gas while trying to start it (unlike some other descriptions of similar problems that I have read). Also, when it starts, it sounds like a good clean start, it just won't idle afterwords. It did this onc
  4. Hi Everyone, Now that my RAV4.3 is out of warranty I've been working on a project. I've replaced the Instrument Cluster, Spiral Cable and Steering Wheel with units stripped straight from a UK based model. The image below is how it is currently looking. I̶ ̶h̶a̶d̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶r̶e̶w̶i̶r̶e̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶C̶l̶u̶s̶t̶e̶r̶ ̶h̶a̶r̶n̶e̶s̶s̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶t̶a̶k̶e̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶n̶e̶w̶ ̶u̶n̶i̶t̶,̶ ̶b̶u̶t̶ ̶e̶v̶e̶n̶t̶u̶a̶l̶l̶y̶ ̶g̶o̶t̶ ̶a̶l̶l̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶f̶e̶a̶t̶u̶r̶e̶s̶ ̶w̶o̶r̶k̶i̶n̶g̶.̶ Appears I only had to do this because at the time I had a manual cluster fitted to an automatic car. When I eventua
  5. Hey guys Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with dealing with Toyota for a post warranty claim? My Rav4 2013 had a fuel injector die in April and Toyota called this a ‘rare anomaly’. It cost me $1200 to fix. Now, 7 months later, another injector has broken down! According to my research, injectors are supposed to last a lot longer than 80,000kms (at least 200,000), so I took this up with the Toyota dealership. They took a week to get back to me and dismissed it as an out of warranty issue. Frustrated, I took my complaint higher (through their “Guest Experience” centre)
  6. Hi, I would like to change my spark plug but have several questions: which spark wench to I need 16mm or higher? Some site and my Manual says Denso SK20R11, but when I check on amazon it says that this will not fit my RAV4 2010 model. Now I am confused. Any ideas?
  7. Please watch and listen to the video I have posted. Can someone please tell me what the hell this could be? It’s been doing it for over a year and no mechanic seems to know what it is, I don’t have the money to just leave at the mechanics so they can stuff around for days trying to find the issue :( 36D6F926-843A-4C5D-85A4-7D3D32AAB954.MOV
  8. Hi Gurus, I’ve noticed a small rattle with my 2014 RAV4 Diesel manual with 21k kms on the clock. I first heard the ‘rattle’ when in neutral whent the clutch is engaged. When I press the clutch in the rattle disappears. The car drives normally with smooth gear changes and no noticed difference in the clutch pedal feedback/pressure. Having noticed it, I hear the rattle throughout the gears although its hard to hear clearly due to the diesel motor sound and road noise. I did stall the car last week at low speed and I think I’m just being paranoid but I can’t remember the
  9. Hi all, I've recently joined the RAV4 world by buying a 2006 model with the 2AZ engine. It's in generally good shape, but the pulley tensioner makes a little noise and the water pump shows signs of leaking (although the coolant level hasn't visibly dropped in the 1500km I've driven it so far). So it makes sense to replace them both at the same time. Looking at replacement parts for the pulley tensioner, there seems to be a fair price difference between the cheap ebay options (around $60) the brand name options like Gates and Dayco (around $250) and the genuine option (around $
  10. Hi guys, I drive a 2007 Rav4. Sadly, I have never taken her to the limit; she's been a princess since the moment I bought her. So as soon as I sort out this stupid radio, it's time to start the muck running! The more the merrier.
  11. HI guys, i have a 2006 CV rav 4 with 74k and with a shocking fuel economy of 14L/100k. I was wondering whether anyone has ever converted their petrol rav 4 into LPG in Victoria, if so how much did it cost. And also how much are you saving from doing this, and whether there are high service cost with the gas conversion. thanks.
  12. My 2013 RAV 4 SD card seems to have been corrupted or wiped after a flat battery and battery change. The card is not readable when plugged in to a computer. The head unit display indicated that it was not able to read the SD card or program. Now it's asking for the pin code but is frozen on the code screen and does not allow any selections to be made. Please help!
  13. Hey guys My front speakers are sounding pretty crap and I want to replace them. I checked crutchfield and it says the size is 6 1/2", but I read somewhere that the size in the Aussie version of the car is smaller. I don't really want to have to fit an adapter so I just want to buy the correct size first go. Thanks!!
  14. Hello, I'm new here and I'm hoping you can help me. My Rav4 (1997) has this problem. Wednesday morning, like clockwork my R4, started first time. I did a bit of shopping with multiple starts and stops of the engine. Then in the afternoon, I tried to start it, and just wouldn't start. I left it for a while, tried it again and after a lot of turning of the engine, it started. I left it to idle for 5 minutes. Initially it was a little rough, but then it cleared, and idled smoothly. Also reving the engine was fine to. So I stopped the engine and tried restarting it. Again it wouldn't start. I wen
  15. Hello Everyone, I have an automatic 2000 Toyota RAV4 Edge and I'm trying to figure out exactly what type of factory stereo I have in my car. I've found a couple of different types of stereos that can go with my RAV4, on this website, but none of them matches how mine looks like. Which is like this: I intend to research what options I may have for installing an AUX input socket at a later stage, but for now, I'd want to know exactly what my setup looks like. Does anyone have the same type of stereo in their car? If so, have you been able to identify them and/or have you hap
  16. Hi fellow members, Does anyone have success in using the navigation part of Toyota Link? I am able to select a destination in Toyota Link via my phone, and I can send it to the vehicle, and the vehicle receives the destination, and it can be seen in a small scaled map with the address shown in text, but there seems no way to get the system to actually direct you to the selected location? I believe that it should be able to do that? any help would be great. Perthite
  17. Hi, I was just wondering if anyone knew the correct paint code for the 98 world cup series rav4. Is it 8K5: Dark Blue Pearl or, 8L5: Royal Sapphire Pearl? The paint code (KA4) written on the metal plate located under the bonnet is not a correct code. Came with no owners manual. Was wanting to touch up some paint scratches. Thanks in advance.
  18. Hi members, I have a 1998 White RAV4 that I love. :) Trying to match body parts, my colour code is (white ) - 041. I have found parts in white - A23... I cant find info on either of these codes anywhere...can anyone help? Will A23 white parts be a close enough match for my 041 white RAV?
  19. Hi all - anyone with a Rav4 from 2001-2003 ever experienced problems with gears changing at random? This is a problem with the computer (ECU or ECM) that is sending the wrong message to the transmission and it changes into the wrong gear without warning. This is known as 'harsh shift' problem: http://www.rav4repair.com/documents/TSB0156.pdf If you have this problem, or had it, it is really important that you report it to the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development ASAP: https://www.infrastructure.gov.au/vehicles/complaints_recalls/form_submission.aspx They investigate products th

    leaking oil

    Hello, I am a new member and need some advice on my leaking oil problem. I have just had a new head put on my 3s-fe engine as the head gasket had blown and was leaking oil. I still have the oil leak even with the new head fitted. I have oli in numbers one and two spark plug holes as well. We have had the car back to a mechanic that fitted the new head and he seems to think the camshaft gasket had gone, Any thoughts on this from anyone?

  24. Hi All, First post on the forum. I have spent a number of weeks on here prior to buying our 2010 Rav4 SX6 last weekend, so a general thanks to all members who contribute here. Im chasing a set of canvas seat covers front and back for our new vehicle, airbag compatible. As a long time toyota owner sitting on black duck canvas I was dissapointed to find that they couldnt provide for our new car. Im not a fan of micro-suede or noeprene as we hit the beach a lot. Can anybody tell me if theyve heard of such, or am I asking for the impossible? Id prefer a proper fitted set rather than the more gener
  25. Hey guys, New to this forum. Just wanted to say that I am excited to be on here and take on everyone's info, comments and suggestions on how owning a Toyota can be fun and rewarding. Currently have a 2012 Corolla Ascent Sport (Manual) and since we loved the Corolla so much, we just recently purchased a 2014 RAV4 Cruiser Diesel (Auto). My wife and I never driven or owned a diesel, so we thought, why not, so far we are loving both cars and gotta say, we won't be getting rid of them anytime soon. Cheers everyone and thanks for having me. Fozz3d
