Re: 2005 toyota rav4 a/c button replacement
This is easy. You can do it yourself.
The center section of the dash simply pulls straight out. Once you have the center section unhooked, unplug all of the wires. Turn the panel over, and push on the back of the AC switch, it will slide out towards the front. Slide the new switch in, it locks into place when it seats. Plug all of the wires back on (they are all different, you can't plug them in incorrectly), and refit the center section.
Save yourself some money, and do it yourself.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

check with toyota,alot of the new transmissions have a long life transmission fluid that is filled thru a drain plug,and there is no dipstick.you maybe trying to find something that does not exist.another example is the 2005 to 2009 pathfinder.the filler tube has a bolt on it and the fluid is done at 160000km.check with toyota.
If the transmission fluid was VERY low, the damage may already be done. I know on alot of Rav-4's, there is a computer problem, that causes transmission problems. basically, it wants to shift into 2 gears at once, and will eventually make the transmission come apart. BUT, it has to be replaced WITH the ECU because it will just break the new transmission. I would take it to your local Toyota dealer and have them check the ECM and transmission.
My question is: How can they justify charging you that amount of money? I sell the same part (Part number 85130-42061) for $260.78. There is NO WAY that should be charging you $285.00 labour, for a 54 minute job. That is robbery. If you want to replace the motor, go and buy it, pay the amount listed above, or find another dealer. Repost to me, and I will send you detailed instructions on how to change it yourself... The graciousness of a FIxYa rating would be greatly appreciated.
