I have a 01 RAV4 with 53000 miles on it. The last vehicle inspection showed that the serpentine belt needs replacement as there were some signs of wear.
My question is have any of you had this belt replaced in your RAVs? Did you get it done at the dealer? How much did they charge?

Thanks,

Had it done @ Champion for $20.00 plus parts. If you find a coupon for a lower labor rate ,they will honor the lower cost.. :wink:

I did it myself in my driveway - $80 for the belt (genuine Toyota part) and zero for the labor.

Re:changing serpentine belt??

I was just looking into changing the belt out in my wife's Rav4. It looks like some kind of special tool is needed to release the tensioner. What kind of tool is needed and how difficult is it to change? Is the $80 belt from Toyota really worth the money spent?

Hers is a 2002 model with a 2.0L engine with California emissions.
