  1. 2011 V6 Sport Towing Options

    4.3 Exterior
    You can check out etrailer for hitches. They have installation videos. I have this one. The installation is easy. You can watch the video to see how it is done. To make it easier to hold the hitch up while bolting it to the car you can use a floor jack or the factory scissor jack for support.
  2. 2009 RAV4 Owners' experiences (please share)

    4.3 General
    It also could be the brand of rotor and pads you are using. I changed my rear pads 2 months ago with drilled slotted rotor with ceramic pads and they stop better now.
  3. Low profile tires

    4.3 General
    I have the Sport model that has 235/55/18 stock tires. If you get 50 series it will make the ride even harsher then mine. Another thing is the diameter is much smaller: 26.3 vs 28.5 inch. So getting these tires means your tire diameter is over 2 inch shorter then normal and your...
  4. Dealership refused to work on my car bc of recall

    4.3 General
    The part fitment guide shows the lower control arm (toe lateral link lower) only fits 2011-2012 models and up. The 2011-2012 Toyota lower control arm appears to be much more different then the previous ones. It appears the part itself does not have any threads to adjust like the older design...

    Read this thread which has some very good information: https://www.rav4world.com/threads/lousy-toyota-service-csj-recall.265354/#post-2432042
  6. Dealership refused to work on my car bc of recall

    4.3 General
    No I have never had an alignment done but I read many threads about owners complaining about it. Take it to some garage that is familar replacing this. It is not really that hard of a job. There are only 2 bolts for the control arm but the shock bottom bolts need to be remove to get access. You...
  7. Dealership refused to work on my car bc of recall

    4.3 General
    That is for the rear lower control arm recall. Toyota epoxied the part so it would not come off. They would need to remove the old ones which is not that hard and put new control arms in if you need to do an alignment. You can install aftermarket parts which is cheaper then the Toyota parts...

    4.3 Mechanical
    Find a Lexus/Toyota dealer website that sell parts online for your vehicle. They will list all the vehicle that fits that transmission.
  9. The Vents are Barely Pushing any Air Out

    4.3 Interior
    First check the cabin air filter.
  10. Unleaded put into Diesel!

    4.3 Mechanical
    There is a possibility that the fuel pump is damaged. The fuel filter should be changed also. Also the proper method of draining all the fuel is the best way of removing mixed fuel.
  11. Do I need new headlights?

    4.3 General
    It looks normal for your car but if you want to make them look better get those headlight restore kit. The 3M ones with sanding disk work really well.

    The 2007-2009 Lexus RX350 shares same transmission as 2007-2010 Sienna The 2010-2016 Lexus RX350 shares same transmission as 2010-2016 Venza - (6speed) 2006-2012 RAV4 AT 5spd -does not fit any other model.
  13. Looking to buy... advice please :)

    4.3 Mechanical
    It does not matter if the mileage is low since you can get the whine at lower mileage. The best thing to do is keep looking and listening to the sound when you test drive your vehicles. Also you should also look at the Lexus RX 350. It has a different transmission and does not have the whine...
  14. Transmission leak @ axle seal

    4.3 Mechanical
    Not sure what is a half shaft? Maybe you mean driveshaft. There is a bearing seal that can leak behind the driveshaft.
  15. 2012 Clunk and Idle issues

    4.3 Mechanical
    For the noise problem it will not be the sway bar links. The clunking noise is usually metal to metal only happens over bumps.
  16. noise when braking

    4.3 General
    I am talking about 240sx and his brakes. He does not have a video unless you are referring to Jayden brakes which he posted 4 years ago?
  17. noise when braking

    4.3 General
    The OP said the car was wrecked not the brakes. It sounds like this car has been sitting around most of the time in the last 2 years. Brake rotors do rust if you not drive it every day and have you seen some used cars in car lot that have not been driven for a long time?
  18. Yet another Rav4 with clunking over small bumps

    4.3 Mechanical
    Then you should find a better mechanic. Yes wasting money is great hobby.
  19. Yet another Rav4 with clunking over small bumps

    4.3 Mechanical
    Maybe could have saved money by not guessing which part was the culprit and let the mechanic tell you instead.
  20. Rear door not opening after putting too much tape on striker

    4.3 Interior
    Get someone to push the cargo door from the inside and try pulling really hard on the other side. Good luck.
