Look over on the passenger side, just to the left of the plastic engine cover. In the first picture you can see the all metal pipe next to the A/C pressure sensor (black plug with blue connectors). The second picture shows the metal pipe in more detail. The last picture shows the original rubber hose. The replacement hose is supposed to have a yellow stripe on it:where can i look in my engine bay to see if this hose has been replaced already or not? a location would be nice, thanks guys.
1. Go here and sign up:Greetings RAV4ers. I have a 2008 Limited V6 4WD with 84K (just bought used). Based on the photos shown, I have an original rubber hose with no yellow stripe. Is this something the dealership should do under warranty (I have Toyota Platinum Warranty for another 36k miles)?
I looked at the history and saw this was done, however it is still a rubber hose and I don't see the yellow mark. Should I be concerned this rubber hose will break again or should I be fine?1. Go here and sign up:

Then enter the VIN of the vehicle. Next, go to "Service Records" and you will see all service that was done to the vehicle by Toyota dealers--including inspections, oil changes, and TSB's. See if the oil hose has been replaced.
2. Click on this link, print out the service bulletin, and take it to your dealer. It should be covered under your warranty:
