Hi guys! New in the forum here.

I was about to change the valve cover gasket of my Rav4, and I noticed that there was some corrosion on some points of it. My engine is 1AZ-FE.

So I need to change the cover.

I'm having a hard time finding the part. But I found one from a 2007 2.4L:
Tampa De Válvula Toyota Rav4 2.4 170cv 2007 A 2011 - R$ 499,99 no MercadoLivre

It looks pretty much the same, despite the internal plate. But I could swap this plate from mine.

My question is: Will it fit my 2.0L engine? The seller already said that it wouldn't, but I'm in doubt.

And the original new part is extremely expensive here!

Thanks!

Hi Bruno, do you have a photo of the corrosion on the original valve cover ? My understanding is that the valve covers of these engines are magnesium and react poorly to some cleaning products.
