Well that makes things absolutely clear .certifier49 said:I have a 2008 RAV4 Limited V6 that was manufactured on 04/2008 that I took to my local Toyota dealer today (Burt Toyota in Denver CO.) and had the person in parts check the information in their computer and it shows the parts for the RAV4 Limited V6s listed in this discussion.
The part # 15707-31030 is the one with the rubber connection.
The replacement part that was installed in all of the RAV4s Limited V6s on 04/2008 and later is metal and the part number is 15772-31030.
The person in the parts department showed me both parts and then I took my RAV4 through the service department and the service manager checked the hose in my vehicle and showed me that mine has the metal hose.
Hope this information helps
Since mine is an 09 I assume mine has the metal hose also.
I will have the mechanic check just to be 100% certain
Thank you for your excellent explanation
