Yes, it is right there.
Be careful when you take the old one out you don't damage the rubber otherwise piecces will fall into the engine. This only happens if the rubber is totally dried out.

You might want to conisder replacing the rubber grommet as well. I tried, but could not get my old one out, so I left it. :oops:

Since my old PCV valve was working fine, the new one made abolsutely no difference whatsoever to the running of my Rav. So much for service intervals.

Er....I just noticed that your Rav is a 2003 so the PCV valve is different to ours. Your one screws in and is in a different place. I would check the 4.2s forum.
