Hello all you guys, and first of all, excuse for my poor English. I'm from Spain, and have been many years no practicing your language...
I spent years reading your forums, because I'm a proud owner of a 97 Rav4 2.0, and I use to make everything I can on it, and finally I decided to try to repair the 5th gear (popping out). I must said it happens to me since 3 years ago..., but in the three different places I asked for a soltution they told me several thousand euros to fix it. A new or a secondhand complete gearbox were the solutions..., now I know it can be easier than that, and much more cheaper.
I have a couple of questions: the three screws needed for the hub puller are standard? Do they come with the puller kit or I need to order them specific for Rav 4.1? The second question: is a pusher necessary? Is a rubber hammer or a metal hammer with a piece of wood to protect the hub from the hits not enought to put it back?
Thanks for your help. I'll told how goes everything when I'll began the operation. By the way, as I'll buy 5th gear in a scrapping (don't know if that is the name for used vehicle parts) I think I will mount the hub with the sincronizer. It's almost for free ina a scrapping (taking it out by myself) and much easyer than mounting/dis-mounting it, don't you think? Thnaks a lot for your help and regards from Spain.

Just a quick not. Other then the factory modification to the split bearing that the dealership didn't catch. These instructions were followed word for word and I was able to fix my 5th gear myself. Thank you so much for being so detail and ACURATE.

I'm not sure. Is it same year/model? Like I said, my only problem was my fifth gear center hole was bigger than my shaft which made me track down that I had to buy a new split bearing because of a factory modification made to it years back.

This page just made my week, my 5th gear started popping out months ago on my 2003 rav... Drove using 4th for a while trying to avoid an expensive repair... if i knew earlier would of been nothing. Found this page wandering around. Check if it was applying to later models and apparently it was so Got the parts number somewhere in earlier posts, order them, red the DIY infos, went to buy some gear oil and got started, sweared a lil trying to pry off the retainer,then everything went like a charm... By the way the maintenance manual says we should change gear oil every year or two... looking at what came out of her thats probably a good idea... i think there was some missing too didnt mesure exactly how much but was dem sure not full. Anyway works great now total cost 375 oil included took me an afternoon. Pretty dem good compare to other options. Thanks to this forum for making this info available.

My Rav is a '98. At the time i had over 180k. I got mine from the dealer and it certainly wasn't that much. Maybe because yours is newer and maybe a little more complicated than the older model. I would have to pull my receipts but I think the parts were about $200. I did the work myself.

Guys, in my case the car, 98 2wd 5 sp, jumps out of gear in 4th and 5th. Can the 4th gear issue be addresses with this approach. Meaning the gears and other parts that support 4th gear, are they accessible?

Can anyone share the distributor who provided the parts. There are some very reasonable quotes in the posts, but I have not had any come my way.
