Hello,

I am an owner of the 2006 Rav4 in the middle east where we do not currently get the v6 versions. I have been looking all over for the v6 style chrome front grille (surrounding the toyota badge) but could not find them on sale anywhere. The dealer here said he might be able to order it for me if i get the part number for it.

Can anyone help please, whether it is the part number or a location I can purchase the grille from. :)

damn Toyota. WHY would the Limited in the US have the chrome grill and the Limited in other countries not???? Stupid.. Maybe your gonan have a hard time getting it over there if none of the models have the grill to begin with. Take a look at my album here to see my chrome grill. Is this the one you want?

hello, a salesman in montreal gave me this as the part number for the Limited Chrome Grille - 5310142180- is it possible for anyone to doublecheck or confirm this for me? before I go in to try and order this grille, its proving alot harder than i expected it to be.

As far as I can tell, it's the right part number for the Limited chrome grill.

Thanks!

If you want just the trim plate it is $35.07 plus shipping from toyotapartscheap.com

http://www.trademotion.com/partlocator/index.cfm?action=getLocator&siteid=214001&chapter=ARM8450&appSectionid=53501&groupid=51820&subgroupid=3582&componentid=8057&make=34&model=Rav4&year=2007&graphicID=8450015&callout=6&catalogid=2

My question: I looked at the assembly instructions, and it sounds like there are 12 screws that hold it on, but I checked my Base, and I don't see holes for the screws. I thought all the grilles were the same, anyone know?

They are not the same. In other words, the sport grill is not the limited grill minus the chrome areas. It's not very "Toyota-like" that's for sure.

Chrome overlay for the limited grill can be modified by grinding off some tabs and perhaps double-sided taping it to a sport. It willl probably still look decent from a far.

Have a look for a new member on here called Parts_King, (he is also a member on TOC) he is a parts manager for a UK Toyota dealer. He will give you price and shipping costs.

Nice job. Did you buy the 3rd line separate from the main chrome trim ?

Nice job, wingdr! I might have to try that, it looks pretty good. I assumed they did that from the factory, but apparently not. On the other hand, I can get the whole grille for $110, so maybe next time I have some extra cash I'll go for it.
