    Anyone know what that noise is EVERY time I open the drivers door? Thanks Dan

    I just bought a used 2018 RAV4 Hybrid and the other day I went to defrost the windows before driving and notice a very distinct rubbing sound coming from under the hood. I had just turned on the defrosters and this noise started under the hood on the drivers side. I opened the hood and found...

    Hi all, I need help! My RAV4 rattles seemingly randomly, and has for the last several years. We’ve taken it to mechanics 4 times over the years but they either couldn’t find the noise or couldn’t make the rattle happen. After spending some time with it myself here is I’ve learned, 1) It can set...

    Hi I’ve been searching the forums and can’t find this same noise problem. I have a ‘19 XSE. When I am at idle in park or in drive with my foot on the brake I get a clicking sound every couple seconds. It will do it for 10-30 min then stop for anywhere from 10-30 min. I’ll attach a video. The...

    Hi folks, I was wondering whether any owners in colder climates have been noticing a constant loud whine coming from the heat pump. I'm bringing it in to the dealer tomorrow to get it checked, but I also wanted to see whether it's a common issue. I live in Canada, and have noticed that the...

    Hi all. Last fall I purchased a 2011 Rav4 AWD 4 cylinder with about 120k miles. From the start I was having vibration issues. Was able to replace torque converter which solved my main problems related to grinding/vibration at around 35-45 mph, but I need help diagnosing another noise that is...

    I have a 2020 Rav4 hybrid limited. It has approximately 4100 miles on it. At around the 3,400 mile mark, I started hearing a strange clicking noise coming from the driver side door/pillar. I can’t even seem to place where the noise is coming from. I took it to one dealer. They lied and said they...

    Hi, I just got done installing 4 new door speakers as well as 2 dash tweaters in my 2013 rav. I went with the many suggestions on here to use the Alpine power pack amplifier and got the KTA-450 4 channel amp. Everything works great and sounds AMAZING, (cant keep turn up half volume its so...

    Hey Forum-goers, I had a guy come look to purchase my 2008 V6 Rav4 today and we discovered a new ticking noise. It seems to be coming from the back side of the engine, either the area of the exhaust manifold and such. It's definitely a centralized sound closer to the back right side of the...

    Began noticing that a front end clunk that would happen at slow speeds over rough roads or bumps. I can't relate it to steering it all; it doesn't seem to get worse if I am turning. No extra play or shimmy in the steering either. After some more travel on dirt roads and some big bumps, I managed...

    Hi all. I have a 2003 Rav, automatic, awd, with about 140k on it. For the past several months, my lovely Sheila has made a high pitched whirring noise when coming off a stop. It seems like the noise is connected to the rpm because when the transmission shifts up, the noise stops. The noise used...

    I’d like to get the 65 mph cabin noise in my RAV4 down to about what I hear at 35-45 mph, if it’s at all possible. I’m wondering what the most efficient / simple / cost effective / impactful way to do this might be. In other words, the most effective per dollar. Touring tires? Underbody...

  14. 4.1 Faults & Fixes
    Hello everyone, This is my first post! I recently bought a 2000 RAV4 manual 4wd that needs a bit of work. I tried searching but I couldn't find much besides the 5th gear problem. Was wondering if anybody might have some experience with this. History: The PO mentioned that they were getting...

    I know this is a new car, but I can't help but notice the road and engine noise. And yes, I test drove the vehicle before I bought it. However, I didn't realize that it was rather loud at first since I drove a 1998 Corolla, so anything was quieter than that. I have a limited budget right now...
