It sounds like you may need to track a replacement through the European Toyota outlets, but try the factory here first. Wow shipping a car from Germany...maybe you can afford a factory replacement softtop. I posted some other solutions if you are on a budget or have time and effort to create a solution.

My 2001 VW Beetle GLS is showing kilometers. How

Normally you need to replace the speedometer. Is it driven by a cable or is it electric/digital? There are suppliers that provide speedometers with miles and kilometers both available as a option, such as one bought in Germany to American specs purchased in Germany for reshipment to US, commonly available in instances where a tourist want a car to pick up in Germany, drive for awhile, the ship back to US.

How can we fix camshaft toyota rav4 1998

A Camshaft repair is difficult. You will actually need to take your engine out to do this. I would suggest getting a repair shop to do this work for you. It's not something that can be explained in a couple of paragraphs to replace. Also if you have to ask how to fix it then it sounds like you do not have the required skills. Bring it to a repair shop, that is your best bet. Sorry I could not help.

How do you replace the timing belt on a 1998 Toyota Rav4?

Not near enough space here to walk you through the procedure. I suggest that you purchase a repair manual for your RAV4 at any auto parts store. It will have photos and detailed instructions. Also replace the water pump at the same time, as it is driven by the cam belt. Belt should be replaced every 90,000 miles.

Cruise control problem

There are 3 places on the Rav4 where fuses can be located and checked. for the cuise control.

The back of the cruise control stacking switch has been know to fail (fall apart) and Toyota issued a TSB with replacement switch.

if it is the fuses then they most likely are related to cruise control system: Stop, Dome, Gauge and Igniton
The interior fuse box
The main engine fuse box (by brake fluid)
Cruise control ECU is under the glovebox.
Cruise control actuator is under hood (by driver side brake fluid/booster)Throttle position sensor (to detect if your foot is on gas pedal)
Cruise control switch on the clutch pedal too (if you have 5spd manual)
Brake lights are the deactivate signal for the cruise control

I have a toyota rav 4 1998 and I need a replacement soft top. Anyone know where I can get one?

6 potential avenues to a solution:

1. You can check the salvage yards but they are hard to find in good shape.

2. The dealer can special order you one but it might cost a fair amount.

3. Another possiblitiy is to get an auto upholstry shop to fab or repair yours. They are specialists at this kind of thing.

4. Then scan ebay for parts or craigslist...but it takes continued effort.

5. I find that if I can locate a broken RAV4 softtop that has been kept out of the sun or covered you could buy it then turn around and sell it without the top or you could even part it out. A lot of effort but when parting you can usually make the entire cost of the purchase plus some and end up getting the soft top for free......

6. What you have is a very unique vehicle.....try finding another very popular model with similar softtops and find a repair solution such as Suzuki Sidekick which can be modified to suit your needs. Or someone that specializes in them then pay them to do your model too.

Many people with softtops end up in the same situation.
