According to my information, there are 2 VSS on the transaxle, both part number 89413-24010. I found a picture of the u241e on Google. The red arrows point to the 2 sensors, and the blue arrow points to where the starter is mounted. You may need to remove the battery and tray to get to them.It's a 2wd 4 cylinder (base model).
Hi JuneBug, I came across this post while researching a similar problem. Do you still have the wiring diagrams available for download? I need to replace the speed sensor wiring on my 2010 RAV4 Sport. Thanks...As I recall, you applied 12 volts directly to the purple VSS wire on the radio plug? That wire goes directly to the instrument cluster (combination meter), not the speed sensor itself. Have you downloaded the electrical wiring diagrams from my profile page?
