I am also looking for the 1997 Toyota RAV4 Factory Service Repair Manual (the Technician's manual,...not Owner's Manual). I will post a reply here if I come across one (or decide to actually purchase one), and try to make it available in PDF file form for all interested parties.

You can buy it from http://www.toyota-tech.eu/
It is 'only' 200 - 390 euro per piece (270 US dollar - 530 dollar)
There are about 11 parts, very detailed for each different part of the car.
Or you can look at it online and spend 3 euro (about 4 dollar) an hour.
I am however not entirely sure this is 4.1 though.

Anybody looking for free PDF downloads of official Toyota manuals are not going to find anything. And if someone has one, they are not going to spend a few days scanning it.

The cheapest option is to sign up for a 2 day license at this website and download what you need;

https://techinfo.toyota.com/

I spent 3-4 hours creating directories/sub-directories and downloading every conceivable section that I might someday need. It cost $15 and you can look up any year Toyota during this period. The bonus with doing it this way is that you get access to more than just the repair manual. You get access to every service bulletin and a lot of other info.

I have just purchased some of the PDF files from the Toyota Rav4 (1996-2000) Service Manual, which I am making available for FREE to any interested Forum members.





There are many useful files included in this collection (such as Chapters on Engines, Manual & Auto Transmissions, Brakes, Steering & Suspension, Wiring & Vacuum Diagrams, Maintenance, etc).

I hope these will be useful to our Forum members. To view/download any of the PDF files simply log in for FREE here:

Thanks, i have downloaded ALL of the content (except the acrobat reader).
I however found out that part of the information is from the 1996 4runner, part is from the 1999 RAV4. I am not sure if it is completely different but you might want to look into that!

This is very nice to have at your disposal though. Appreciate this gesture a lot!
Many thanks Denver guy!

Yeah Pim, I have noticed that some of the Sections apply to other Toyota vehicles as well (and not just the RAV). So I will let each user decide whether the info contained in those Sections are relevant or not. I just put it all out there as I received it for you to have at your disposal... it is up to each of you to pick & choose what info is applicable to your vehicle(s).

I hope this info is useful. I also expect to put up more Manuals/info very soon.

Cheers!

Use isohunt.com if you want to search for torrents.
It searches automatically in about 500 torrentsites, adding more sites if they become known.
Plus Isohunt combines results so that when one goes down, or is sluggish, the other sources are used to compensate/ improve speed.

Popular items i regularly get to have them in sooner then when i would have gone to a shop and bought them. Plus the versions are usually the best options with cracks or serials. Be cautious with zip or rar files when there aren't many people seeding it (making it available). It still can be contaminated by people with ill intends.

Denver, please keep us updated when you put new versions in. Would be nice if you would add those to a different section so it's easier to tell which are new.
Many many thanks!
