Looks like the protective panel under the front fascia needs to come off first, then installing the fogs shouldn't be a big deal. I am hoping to install some also - just need to find the right size fogs.
I'm sure its possible -- dealerships always want something to make more money. Parts and service makes up a large percentage of their profit margin.
That said, I'm sure there's instructions on how it can be done floating around somewhere. Whether it's in the official Toyota RAV Repair Manual, or some other documentation provided only to Toyota ports and dealers is yet to be known.
*Remembers the instructions for servicing the ceiling console...* Kelly? :wink:
If a Dealer's mechanic can do it a competent DIY'er can certainly do it. The only question will be the how and with a little time and trial and error it certainly can be done. The new trend of making items "Dealer Only Repair" is becoming a pain. I can undersand it if it's an error in design (like the old GM's that you had to pull the engine to change the back plugs) but in many of the new cases it's on purpose!! As stated earlier it's way to try and make more $'s for the dealers.
So I'm almost 100% ready to buy my 2011 Rav4 Sport, until i discovered that it doesn't come with a spare tire. I understand run flat technology and all but I drive long distance and can't take that risk w/o a spare.
Is there any option for a spare in the Sport Edition???
Any way I can get...
OK, this is still a work in progress. i would like input / feedback from the community to help refine the documentation :wink: TIA!
And of course - be forewarned: i do not work for Toyota, am not a mechanic by profession, and should not be considered an authority on any of the systems dealt...

Hey great forum you guys got here. I love that there’s a forum and a freak for everything. Thanks for having me.
My daughter was in an accident (she is OK) and smashed up her fender and bumper. So I’m on the hunt to fix it. A couple of questions.
What is that tank thing just inside the driver...
