There are a lot of steps involved in this to do it correctly not counting the obvious, you have to pull the transmission. I recommend you get the Haynes or Chiltons Repair manual on your vehicle for step by step directions and recommendations on tolls, special or otherwise. The new assembly should come with any guides, that is a bearing guide or clutch alignment guide, that might be needed.

Adjusting clutch on rav4 1996

Hi Cliff, The adjustment of the clutch is carried out at the top of the clutch pedal. You'll need to lay on your back to reach it. It uses a 12 mm locking nut. if the pedal is too high, screw the push rod in and if its too low, unscrew. Regards John

How to replace clutch step by step on a toyota rav4 4wd

You need some very specialized tools to do that You'll need a jack to hold the transfer case once you remove all the bolts holding it to the transmission. Remove the drive shafts.Then you'll need to remove the transmission, again with a supporting jack. Once that has been accomplished , remove the bolts holding the clutch to the flywheel. I'd replace the pilot bearing in the flywheel that holds the input shaft to the gearbox before proceeding. There are special tools available to do that. Now assemble the clutch disk and the clutch plate and put the bolts back in without tightening them. Now take the clutch alignment tool and push it thru the clutch disk and into the new pilot bearing. position it so the clutch disk is dead center in the clutch plate and then finish tightening the bolts Put a new throw out bearing on the clutch release lever and reinstall the transmission and transfer case. Reinstall the drive shafts and replace any gear oil that may have spilled out of the transmission or transfer case. Adjust the clutch pedal clearance to spec and you're done.

Can I add something other than brake fluid (maybe a brake treatment that is heavier) to the brake fluid to help keep the clutch from slipping on a 1996 rav4

no, the hydraulics is not the issue, its time to replace the clutch. there is no quick fix or easy patch job, replace the clutch (hydraulics dont affect how the clutch holds, they mearly either disengage the clutch or do nothing)

It is at the engine end of the upper radiator hose. In the picture below it is number 15, below the thermostat cover, number 13 and gasket, number 14. This is a picture of your 1996 Toyota RAV4 cooling system.

Noticed that the revs would build too quickly and did not match the 2004 Rav4 speed in higher gears. 1st gear seems OK. If I accelerate gradually there are no problems. So I'm guessing I need my clutch...

You are exactly right. The clutch is going out. The cable is an automatic adjusting cable. So there is no adjustment. It will require a new clutch.
