I was very pleased to see one of my friend replaced the the cowl cover from a 2001 model to the 2004 (5 dr). Now he can easily lift the replacement cover to access the battery terminal and make easy for jmup starting.

I wonder if the 3 dr RAV can be replaced with the redesigned cowl. Anyone know or tried it?

The battery cover in the RAV 4,2 from 2004 has a sort of a window on it. The window can be lifted withour having to remove the whole cover and that lets you access the battery termionals. I saw it about a year ago at the Toyota but did not ask the dealer if it fitted the older models of RAV. I suspect it is extremely expensive. Let us know if any one has got the real price information.

Hmmm, interesting. I'll have to drop by my local dealer then to check it out. Was wondering if maybe it's just the Euro spec Ravs since you two are the only ones who've ever mentioned such a change. I'll go check out the Ravs in the dealer's lot today if I can to verify.

Battery Cover

I have ordered the parts required for the new cover with the small opening lid.

I paid £110. I know the parts are expensive, but I think it will be worth it if you decide to keep the car longer.

I will let you guys know when I fitted it.

I think I will go for the velcro technique instead of buying a new modern cover. That way I get to save 110 £. I am looking for a thin strip of black velcro right now!

New cover does fit 3 Door RAV 2001 model

The new battery cover with the small plastic window (allowing easy access to the battery terminals) does fit the 3 door RAV 2001 model. I have fitted this with no problem.

Hello everyone, I know this is an old thread, but I lost my batter cover (Toyota RAV4 '03). I was looking for a used one but I didn't get any luck. Any suggestion?
I live in Houston, TX.

Thanks to everyone

Thanks for the suggestion!
I could not find the part on this website. The problem is also that I don't know exactly the name or the number of the part.

I was going to see if I could find it...but their site seems to be down right now.

However go to your local dealer and ask, they'll pull it up and then ask for their price and the Toyota PN. Then put it into 1sttoyotaparts.com and see how much more you'd save by buying through them.

Hello,
I think the battery cover cowl numbers for the 2004-2005 RAV4 are, the battery cover number is 55784-42021 and the little window number is 55786-42040. I hope this helps.
