We have the instructions right here at RAV4World:

Wow, I wish I could have gotten hold of those instructions. I wanted the body side moldings on my hybrid when I purchased it, and before I could do anything, the dealer "installed" them. Let's just say, none of them were even on the same plane across the door. They looked like they each had been thrown on by someone wearing a blindfold. I had to have them order new ones after a lengthy discussion with the manager, and then I removed the old ones because I wasn't letting the dealer get near them again. I spent an hour taking measurements from a vehicle that had them installed at port, then I made templates out of masking tape, and ended up getting them on perfectly in the end. It probably would have been easier with those instructions, though!

Sorry to hear you had such a bad experience with the dealer installed moldings. Trouble is they sometime have the "detailers" install them thinking "who can screw this up"! I purchased a set of EBay from a reputable company, they came with very explicit directions and there was a video you could watch. Took me maybe 30 minutes to lay out the blue painters tape for my line, measured 10-15 times. Applied and wa-la they came out beautiful and the paint was spot on! Glad you finally got what you wanted! Any pictures?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that is what happened. They also didn't quite get the splash guards on correctly, and after that I chose to do the rest, installing mats, the door edge guards, and the door sill plates. In the end, though, I think it worked out for the better, as I wasn't a huge fan of having the moldings but up against the door edge guards since they go a few mm onto the panel. This way I was able to move the front one up a bit so it looked even when the edge guards were installed. The lines are spot on now, and perfectly even between both sides. The extra effort was definitely worth it.
