Hello Everyone,

I am new to this forum and I would like to thank you all for the help and troubles you have shared.

I recently bought my Rav4 not knowing what I was getting into, I was more excited about the vehicle. I recalled hearing a whining noise but thought nothing of it, recently it has gotten louder and I got worried and started looking up all over about this is. I found no answers until I realized exactly what I was looking for. None the less, it was the electric coupler thingy that engages the 4wd. People have been quoted for $1500+, and a new part was $800+. I found a Rav4 on craigslist selling the differential for $350, that was still a little too much but luckily I found one in the junkyard and paid $70 for the whole rear diff and replaced mines. I jacked my Rav4 up on all 4s and ran it to test if there was any whining sounds, all is gone but tomorrow I will be road testing it!!! So excited!!

Thanks again everyone!!
