Sooo I’m the proud owner of 2000 rav4, but I lack two accessories that I’ve looked high and low for: roof racks and the famous rav4 tire cover. I found them on another rav4 ( score) that is sadly getting junked. The guy sent me pictures of all 4 keyholes for the roof racks, but something wasn’t right (at least to me). There seems to be something blocking a few of the holes, like possibly stopping the key from entering? I asked about it and in his words, “They look like metal flaps, one moves, the other two don’t. So I’m not sure what’s up, I never had roof racks in my life...”. He goes on to say if they’re no use to me, he’ll just junk the truck today. I’m like, “NNNOOOOO!!! Let me do some research and get back to you.” He’s 2.5 hours away and I’m going to get at least the tire cover tomorrow. Can anyone tell me if these can be saved??

Is the #23 key(s) included? One lock looks as if a screwdriver was used in it. If no key(s), I'd replace the locks.
Also get the four black-rubber mounting blocks as well as the four black metal attaching hooks. The sides hinge down to release from the roof -- if no key ask if they are unlocked otherwise he/you can't get the racks off.

If there's an intact optional center console cubby (about 5 inches wide by 14 inches long; with padded opening top; installs with black screws into the standard console's rear cup holder), you might want to grab that too (and its mounting hardware). Even if you don't need it, it would be an easy-sell for ~$100 if in excellent condition.

LMK if he has the hold-downs/attaching points for the optional rear (black stretch cord) cargo mesh.
