- TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETINS -

Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs) are issued by Toyota to help automotive technicians diagnose and repair problems reported by consumers and auto repair shops. TSBs contain factory fixes for difficult to diagnose problems such as wind noise, transmission performance, stubborn door locks and all kinds of shakes, rattles, squeaks and groans that can sometimes drive you nuts. TSBs describe service procedures that may improve performance, reduce future breakdowns, or show a factory authorized modification for your vehicle.

Most of the TSB files below are in PDF format. Click on the TSB title to open and view the file in a new window. Some TSBs may carryover to following model year(s), even though not listed as such. As far as we know, these files pertain to USA models only, though it has been reported that some of the fixes apply to other countries as well.

If you know of any additional TSBs for the RAV4, and would like to share them with us, please forward them to ---> tsb@rav4world.com.
