D4D Gearbox Issues....

Hey People,

Can anyone tell me if the Rav4.2 gearboxes for the 2.0 Diesel and the 1.8 Petrol VVT are interchangeable? i.e. do they have the same diff ratio? Same clutch / pressure plate size etc? same bolt pattern?

As my 2002 D4D has lost the synchro on 5th and no longer stays in gear. It's hard to find a D4D gearbox but there are a few 1.8 VVTI's around

Thanks

2.0 diesel has gearbox E353F and 1.8 petrol has gearbox C54. As they belong different gearbox family I doubt the interchangeability. The C54 is meant for front wheel drive cars only.

As your problem sounds the same as happens with gearbox E352F, check this thread:
5th Gear Popping out Self-Repair

If the gearbox works otherwise and the fluid looks quite normal, fixing is option. It'll save money and labour.

Thanks for that rns. Really good write up on that one.

I noticed that the write up was on a 97 model. Any chances you know what the difference between the E353F and the earlier E352F are? Would they be interchangable as I can get one of those easily and cheaply. I'm guessing by the designation that there would be differences, but if it's only mounts or something minor then it could be a good thing?

You're welcome but still I would think fixing could be the best option as this 5th gear problem may appear in the used gearbox you find. To convince here is my experience of the job: 5th gear - manual shifter moves when throttle pushed

From these diagrams I could say clutch housing can be different but the gearbox frame is the same.
These are for your 2002 diesel:
TRANSAXLE OR TRANSMISSION ASSY & GASKET KIT ToyoDIY.com (by text applicable E352F, E353F, E359F)
CLUTCH HOUSING & TRANSMISSION CASE ToyoDIY.com (by text only applicable E353F)
TRANSMISSION GEAR ToyoDIY.com (by text applicable E352F, E353F, E359F)

Also 4th and 5th gear ratios are different between E352F and E353F
