I removed my blower assembly from under the passenger side lower dash to get to the servos. I am confused how the upper dash was removed and the damper cleaned up and the plastic gear reinstalled in 2 hrs. Can the upper dash be removed without taking the steering wheel Loose? is there access to the lower part of the evaporator case from the top somehow?
I know this is an old thread, but this just happened to me, and thanks to this thread I was able to fix it in an hour. Pulled the glove box out, and could see the big white gear was loose. Popped off the floor duct piece so I could look in at the damper door and sure enough, it was stuck shut with black goo. I don't think its sealer, but part of the rubber gasket on the bottom of the door that just melted at some point. Maybe a really hot summer day? I cleaned all the sticky stuff off and put the white gear back on ( which took the most time trying to figure out the correct position ). If it happens again, I may just take that black rubber gasket off the bottom of the door. Worse thing that can happen is a little air will sneak out below the door ( closed position ) into the heater ducts when its all supposed to coming out the vents or defrost.
This happens to a lot of vehicles. It happened to our '94 Dodge Grand Caravan. The foam they used seems to deteriorate and turn into a tar-like substance. What year is your RAV4, and does the VIN begin with J?
I just reset the white gear back on and cleaned the seal off with Gunk engine cleaner on a rag. I found a 2010 Rav4 at a car dealer and took pics of the gear in the different positions (after being unable to find the right spot the previous day). Pushed the control for defrost and had it on in about 5 minutes. I'll post the position pics, maybe help someone get it back on a little quicker. They set at: pic 1- floor, 2- face, 3- defrost.
I just purchased a 2019 limited. I have the Toyota app installed to activate remote start. Works fine.. however I cannot get the defrost (front and rear) to come on when I activate the remote start. I have set the settings for both defrosters prior to turning off the vehicle thinking the...

I did search and only found one on a much newer Rav. I just bought a used 2006 and figured out how to do the presets but all but one already had stations programmed in. The only station I like is not correct. How to I delete the presets so I can start over until I put in a new after market stereo?
There's a flap of carpet type material attached to the seat at the bottom at the rear of the seat, where a rear passenger's feet would be. Attached to the bottom of this flap there is an elastic band type thing...Mine are justlying on the floor of the car.
Where do the elastic bands go...
