Hi moiramarydow, if the hood release cable is not broken, you could get a helper to push down on the hood at front center over the latch to relieve pressure of latch while you pull the hood release , if it opens ,grease it good.......if the cable i mentioned is broken ,you will need a new one but in the meantime to open it i have done this: look into the front of the grille with a brite light around hood latch of course, and locate the release, you can I D it by the small cable coming from it, trip the latch to open, in other words you have to do what that cable does by hand, use any tool you can to reach it and get leverage on it,, being careful not damage any thing in the process like the radiator or condensor. good luck . OK!!

1997 toyota rav 4 hood release dose not work


It may be that the hood release cable has streched so there is no tension when pulling the leaver. Try to reach reach above the lever and pull the cable making it less slack and then pull the lever all the way up with your other hand and hopefully this will open it, if this works i suggest replacing it before it stretches even more or snaps and you wont get it open..

Location of colour code on 2003 toyota rav 4 chassis/body


Toyota paint codes are can usually be found either under the hood or on the passenger/drivers side door jamb. Most Toyota paint codes are 3 digits long.
If you can't find your color code on the car your local Toyota dealership (parts department) will be able to tell you your code from your registration or chasis number...
Good luck..i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.

How do you replace a headlight on a 1999 Toyota Rav 4?


Do you mean the entire headlight assembly or just the bulb?
If it's the entire headlamp look at the new one to see where the fastening points are, the grill may have to be removed and also the parking lamp lens, if it's just the bulb it's easy Open your hood look at the backof the headlight assembly and twist the bulb holder ring to release it. Good Luck To You

Toyota rav 4


I work for Toyota, and I will be glad to provide you with the actual answer:

The RAV/4 product is available in two models, a 4WD model and a 2WD model.
The difference between the two is on the 2WD model, there is no driveshaft going under the vehicle to the rear wheels, and no rear differential. There is no "RAV/2"; both models are called RAV/4's.

There is a lot of common confusuion about how the 4WD works. It is full time 4WD. In other words, it is always in 4WD. It does not "kick in/kick out/automatically engage", or anything like that. It is 4WD all of the time. But, when I say "4WD", that is sometimes mistaken for "all wheel drive", and, in this case, the RAV/4 is not "AWD". What this means is that if you raise the RAV/4 up on a lift, and put it in gear, 1 rear and the other side front tires will spin. True "all wheel drive" would have ALL 4 wheels spinning. This is not the case with the Rav/4. What the RAV does have, making up for not having "True AWD" on the 5 speed model, however, is a switch that locks the center differential in the transfer case, which, when engaged, applies a method of "locking" the 4WD system for maximum traction, but it is still not AWD. The automatic version doe not have this ability.
The last "true AWD" vehicle for purchase was a 1970's International Scout.
If you are considering purchasing a RAV/4, that is a very good investement. They hold their value quite well, and are virtually bulletproof; I do not make any "money" off my RAV/4 customers...
Just "gas station work". Very nice cars. I hope that this helps you, please feel free to comment back with any otherr questions...Glad to be of assistance.
