SOURCE: replace rear brake pads on Rav4 2006 model

after caliper removal, just replace the pads. the pistons will need to be pushed back into the caliper if they wont go back in, you will need to twist thenm to the right as you are pressing them in. then bolt it back together. after you are done get in and depress the brake pedal 1/2 way down ONLY, keep pumping half pumps until you get a firm pedal. then ck the brake fluid level, it should be full. if any brake fluid is spilled or the master cylinder is wet, rinse clean with water.

SOURCE: how can I replace an alternator in a Toyta RAV4 2006?

if i recall correctly about a 30 - 40 minute job its mounted on top of the engine so easy to get to. theres just a couple of nuts and bolts to remove alternator along with wiring on the back of it. JUST REMEMBER TO DISCONNECT BATTERY EARTH LEAD FIRST then reconnect when new alternator fitted, ensure alternator drive belt is tensioned correctly also. hope this helps

Your car should have different shocks from most cars, with the magnetic, electrical charge viscosity change. Be sure that the shocks are actually not functioning correctly.

Difficulty: Easy-ish
Time: About 1 hour
Tools: Two 17mm spanners - ring and open. Long spanners may help.

As the chart below shows, it's quite normal for a shock absorber to have traces of oil around the top. However leaks like level 3 to 1 mean the shock absorber (SA) needs replacing.

Probably a good idea to replace in pairs.

As always, apply hand-brake, chock the opposite front wheel and without the vehicle raised, slightly slacken off the road wheel nuts.

My rav4 takes bumps hard,can changing tires help with this?

changing tires will help some but if your tread isnt worn enough to justify the cost wouldnt be worth it. depending on your mileage it may be time for shocks/struts. 50,000 is a good time to start checking into shocks.

you can test shocks by doing the following:

the easiest test i know is to push down on front (or rear) of the car, keep pushing until you get it bouncing then let go. if the car has good shocks it will bounce only once after you let go. look under the car at the shocks, if there is oil leaking from the shocks, they are bad.
