So I just bought a used Rav4 2001 from a third party and it is missing the passenger side cowl. Not any part where the wipers go thank god, but there's a huge gaping hole looking into the engine where the battery is. It is raining today so I didn't want to chance it, and I walked to work.

Is this something that needs an immediate fix? If water gets in there could that be bad?

I saw cowls are expensive, but is that for the whole thing and not just the little chunk I need you think? I'm going to have to go to the service dept at my local toyota when it stops raining, and ask them, but I am really hoping it isn't too expensive. Those diagrams you see online are not very helpful.

I went to a salvage yard but the 97 they had there didn't match.

Any insight would be appreciated!
