If you cant see it then look again and look to see if its bolted to a coupling thats bolted up from underneath the car to the chassis with three nuts holding it up ,if it is then you have to compress the spring ,undo the bottom fixing and then the nut is on top of the coupling

HOW TO REMOVE REAR SHOCK ABSORBERS 2006 RAV4




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.

Typically, you need to release interior trim, to gain access to several thumb nuts (can be turned by hand). These nuts retain the entire assembly, and need to be released to access bulbs.
