That makes perfect sense, but it's not really big enough to cover the entire engine bay.

Help RAV4World members help you by providing your car's operating location in your profile page. Climate can cause a RAV4 in Dallas Wisconsin to experience a different set of issues when compared to the same model in Dallas Texas.

Not sure this is true.

But I agree that keeping things as close to OEM is generally the best solution.

I had the same problem with my RAV4 several months back. I also balked at the outrageous price for such a tiny piece of plastic. In the end I just used a T fitting. If there is any delay in the fluid getting to the nozzles it is very short. Spray patterns seem fine as well.

My passenger nozzle on my 2013 went weak the other day as well. Ordered a replacement off amazon but it ended up not working for jack squat either. Ended up using a vacuum line T fitting and all is well again. Seems to be working perfectly! Unless you're super conceded about keeping things OEM or having a check valve, I'd just save your cash and use a T.
