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.

How to turn on rear wiper on 97 rav4

Assuming you know where the switch is, It could be that the rear window is not shut all the way, or the vehicle 'thinks' it is not shut. This could also be the case with the back (5th) door. The wiper does not operate if either of these are open. It's possible that the main wipers have to be on as well. Did you check the fuses?

Is there a seperate fuse for a 2007 toyota rav4 rear window wiper and where is it? The wiper stopped working.

There are three fuse boxes (or fuse blocks) on the '07 RAV4--two in the engine compartment and the other by the driver's left knee. I'm sure there's a fuse for the wiper. Unfortunately it's likely to be on the UNDERSIDE of the interior fuse block. You'll need a mirror to locate the fuses since even if you get your head under there the fuses are too close to see (unless you're incredibly near-sighted).
My rear window wiper has operated intermittently since nearly the day I bought it. The dealer says to replace the motor for $400+. I just live with its craziness. There's probably a short or loose connection, but I haven't found it yet.

Rear wiper does not work properly

sounds like the slip rings inside the wiper motor that make it return to the park position have a dead will probably have to replace the wiper motor because parts are hard to come by.

Replacing rear wiper blade

I purchased a Trico "Exact Fit" #12-A rear wiper blade at Advance Auto Parts for my 2006 RAV4. The directions are very clear. It took about 3 minutes. The key is to open the plastic cover at the bottom joint of the blade by spreading the both sides with your index fingers and pulling straight out. This opens the cover and allows you to bring the blade to a 90 degree angle.

Rear windshield wiper

remove the cover cap that is by the base of the wiper arm. you can do this by just pulling off with your fingers. The wiper arm is attached with a 10mm nut. remove th nut and the wiper arm will slip off. When re-assembling, be certain to wipe all parts with a long lasting lubricant, like WD40.

Front windshield wiper blades

The 2006 Toyota RAV4 takes a 24" drivers side, 17" passenger side and has a special 17" rear blade. Don't just go by lengths though - when buying windshield wiper blades be sure to always use the application guide book at the store or now-a-days you can Google 'lookup wiper size'.

You want to look this up because correct wiper fit is more than correct length, it's also proper attachement. Not all attachments fit all arms. Using the application guide or looking up wiper size online will avoid headaches of buying the right lengths with the wrong attachements.

The replacement wiper blades will come with step-by-step, illustrated instructions and once you have the instructions and the wiper blades/arms in your hands in front of you, it will all make better sense and will an easy maintenance task. Very simple and takes 5-15 minutes usually not requiring any tools. If in your budget, upgrade to the newer-style frameless "beam blades" which perform better than conventional framed wipers. I use Trico NeoForm Beam Blades which are fantastic. Hope this helps!

PS: Your question is about the front blades but if you address the rear blade too, this vehicle has what they call a "Roc Lock 2" rear arm. You can go to your dealer or I know Trico makes an "Exact Fit Rear Integral Blade 12-A". There may be others available too. I've got the Trico on my Jeep and it fits/works great.
