OEM parts online? Parts diagram? Factory Service manual?

Anyone have a good source for the factory service manual in PDF? (I prefer PDF over the written manual)

What about a page online with the Rav4 parts diagram?

Finally, an online source (non-retail price) for OEM parts?

That site is one of the many trademotion sites, like Parts.com, or 1stToyotaParts.com, etc.

Diagrams are available if you click on the "View Illustration" next to the part. Any of these 3 sites are excellent resources when Autozone doesn't stock an item.

Not sure on the factory service manual though.

TIS for PDF factory service manual. Takes forever to manually save each part, but in the end, it's worth the hassle.

Thanks, guys - still looking for a factory service manual, but the parts diagrams are outstanding.

The Haynes manual is pretty good for most things. I actually don't find the FSM to be good for much besides torque settings or telling my what special tool I don't own.

Re: OEM parts online? Parts diagram? Factory Service manual?

I simply don't use the Haynes manuals anymore. The factory manuals have stuff that Haynes doesn't have - like electrical connector pin out, etc.

I prefer the factory manuals to be on PDF, if I can get them... It seems no one is selling the PDF for the 4.1 anymore though...

What???? the FSM beats Haynes hands down. It can be over kill if you just do basic maintenance (oil change, tire rotation etc), but any dive any deeper into maintenance/mods the FSM is where its at. Haynes just doesn't compare.
