I tried to get under the Rav4 without lifting and I was not able, not even clearance, which disappoints me because my previous SUV I was able to get under without lifting. My wife told me to lose weight.

I was also thinking of maybe some lo profile ramps (+ or - 3 inches) or a pair of2Xsomething wood could do the job.

There are 4 10 mm screws to remove the cowling, passenger side panel marked with a big "1". Still looks to be a 17 mm drain plug, I forgot to verify.
