    Hello Rav4 Community! I’ve been trying to to repair the clutch on my 1998 RAV4 and at this point I’m pretty much desperate for any help I can get.

    I installed a new OEM front drivers side CV axle nearly a week ago now on my ‘12 V6. It took some serious work to slide in - used hammers, grease etc. - and I thought I heard it click when I finally shoved it in by hand. However, the past week or so I’ve noticed a couple small puddles in the...

    I have an almost 10 year old (90,000 miles) 2010 Limited RAV4 with 4x4. I've never really used the 4x4 mode before. My pickup truck friends told me I should be running it in 4x4 at least once a month (never heard of this but makes sense). Should I even bother at this point after 10 years...
