Front grill replacement - rav 4

I need to replace the grill on my 2006 rav4. I have the new assembly and it doesn't appear that it should be that difficult however I cannot figure out how to get the old one out. I've taken out the top fasteners but need to get to the bottom ones.

any help - how much needs to be taken off in order to get to it?

    I have the same problem and am looking for a solution to remove old grill and replace with a stainless billet grille. I can barely reach 3 of the 4 bottom bolts and the 4th one would require my arm to be about 12 " longer and thinner. The instructions that came with the new billet grille purchased on ebay just says to " remove 4 lower bolts". A lot easier said than done.

    Any ideas regarding how to remove old grille? I replaced and old grille on my previous vehicle ( a jeep grand cherokee) and it was much easier due to having plenty room for my arms.

    Help!

I can get you a diagram on monday but it goes from the alternator to the power steering pump then around the tensioner pulley then around the crank pulley then to the a/c compressor then pull on the tensioner to give you some slack and slip it on the waterpump.I hope that helps.Let me know if you still need the diagram

SOURCE: 2006 toyota rav 4 fog light bulb replacement

fIRST YOU SEE A RUBBER GASKET SURROUNDING THE HEADLIGHT PLUG IN THE BACK OF THE HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY. pULL OFF THE GASKET AND LET IT HANG ON THE SURROUN DING HEADLIGHT WIRES. tHEN PULL OFF THE HEADLIGHT WIRE HARNESS BY GRABBING THE SOCKET (NOT THE WIRES). AROUND THE BULB IS A THIN SILVER HOLDING SPRING THAT LOOSENS BY SQUEEZING THE ENDS TOGETHER AND ROTATING IT. iT WILL LOOSEN AROUND THE HEADLIGHT. WHEN THIS HAPPENS THE HEADLIGHT WILL "FLOP" AROUND AND PULL IT OUT, REMEMBERING TO SEE HOW THE THREE CONNECTORS ARE LOCATED (I.E - IS ONE CONNECTOR AT 12 O CLOCK POSITION AND THE OTHER TWO ARE AT 9 AND 3 OR ARE THEY AT 3,6 AND 9, ETC.). rE-ASSEMBLY IS THE OPPOSITIE. tHE TRICK IS TO GET THE THIN SPRING WIRE BACK IN PLACE. YOU HAVE TO SQUEEZE THE SPRING AND RE-POSITION IT SO IT KEEPS THE BULB SECURLY IN PLACE

Having just changed the bulb, I would advise taking the whole headlight assembly out first. It is near impossible to feel or imagine how to change the bulb without seeing it. First, use a phillips screwdriver to take the single screw holding the strip off just below the headlight assembly. By doing so, you will now see the other two bottom bolts holding the headlight in. Take all four bolts out then disconnect the bulb from behind. Then proceed as above.

SOURCE: Broken passanger side outside mirror

on the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. With that off, you can then disconnect the cable (wires if it has a motor) connecting the mirror to the controller. Then you can remove the bolts securing the mirror onto the door

SOURCE: adjusting headlights in 1996-2000 rav 4

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

SOURCE: Thinking of buying a 2006 rav4 with 54000. Is

I have a 2006 RAV4, have had no trouble with it until recently. When I reach 40 mph, it made a whine/vibrating noise. I took it into my Toyota dealer - I need a new transmission and possibly a new computer. Of course, I have 3,000 too many miles on it for it to be covered by warranty. We are dealing with Toyota and the dealer, Rudy Luther in Minnesota - so far no luck. If you google Toyota RAV transmission problems, LOTS of information pops up. Toyota has known about this problem for 4 years, but has not issued a recall. There is a class action suit in California. I have been a Toyota owner for 32 years and loved my RAV, but I will NEVER buy another Toyota if they don't take responsiblity for this. DON'T buy the RAV!

How to remove,replace,front right headlight, 200' rav-4 ?


Headlight bulbs are easily replaced. At the back of the headlight assembly, under the hood, find the electrical connector and turn it counterclockwise a quarter turn, then pull out the connector and attached bulb. Remove the old bulb, and replace with your new bulb. Do not touch the glass part of bulb with your hands or fingertips- it will shorten bulb life. Put the new bulb back into place and turn it clockwise to secure it..

Oem battery for 4 cylinder automaatic 2006 rav4


The OEM battery has a little blue indicator in the middle of it. This battery is no good. I had to replace mine after less than a year. I bought the RAV brand new off the lot. Instead of going to the dealer to get the same junk battery, I got a 24F-DLG duralast battery. Had that one since 2007 with no problems.

Thinking of buying a 2006 rav4 with 54000. Is there any reason I should not buy a 2006 rav? Any particular problem with this year model. It has 2.4 automatic


I also bought a used 2006 RAV4 Sport (in 2008) and I am really happy with it. What you need to look for is for a clunk, pop or knock type noise when you are turning the steering wheel left of right. I noticed it when I test drove it. There is a service bulletin ST001-08 not a Recall. The dealer would have fixed it under the 36000 warranty but I don't know if it will be fixed after that. The 2006 RAV4 has no recall problems for the accelerator.
