On the V6, the filter is located on the bottom front of the engine on the passenger side. It is silver and looks like an oil filter cap wrench. It is not the traditional oil filter where you replace the entire unit. With this type you remove the cap, drain the oil, and replace the paper filter element and 2 gaskets.

to get the cap off use a standard 65mm-67mm filter wrench "end cap" that you stick on your 3/8" drive ratchet like this one..

Where is the oil filter on my 2006 rav4 t180

I have an 06 Rav4 Limited w/4 cyl engine and the oil filter is under the passenger side near where you undo the plug to drain the oil. It can't be seen unless you get yourself behind (slide under vehicle far enough) the black plastic cover. You will need an oil filter remover and wratchet. I'm not a pro, just a female Toyotal owner for many years, and do my own changing on all my Toyota's. This vehicle's mechanical book is $500.00 plus dollars (Shame on Toyota) and therefore I will not purchase this one. If you have a JBL 6 disc changer do not fully load it and you may not have problems. Good luck and let me know if someone else helped you with this solution.

Hello, it's just in front of the oil pan put up high you might need an extension on the ratchet to get to it. It is oriented vertically and contained within a metallic screw shell.
