Question about 1996 Toyota RAV4
Replacing cam belt
It's right hand thread, but very tight. One trick mechanics use, is to disable the igniton, and put a johnson bar on it, with it braced somewhere against a frame member, and crank the engine very briefly with the starter. The engine cranks clockwise so you must ready the bar against something in that direction. As you crank, the bolt resists in the counterclockwise direction and comes free. Sometimes makes a bit of noise, but it works like a charm.
