Rav-4 Door Sill Protector Panels?

7 posts in this topic

Just purchased a 2013 RAV-4 Ltd. The door sill plate is exposed painted metal and has not type of covering, leaving it exposed to potential scratching and nicks by shoes coming in contact with it. I used to be able to find stick-on black plastic sill panels to prevent damage to sill.

Anyone know where I can buy a set of 4 custom fitted black plastic, stick on sill plate?

Welcome to the club Mark :thumbsup:

Why not get some 3M protection film ? [trade name Ventureshield in the UK]

That way you can make up your own templates and cover exactly where you wish. It's a fairly easy DIY job and the film is available in various sizes on e-bay.

Surprising all mine have had scuff protectors but then i normally purchase the Rav with the protection pack, i think you can buy these from Toyota or potentially from other vendors but they may not have caught up with the new model as yet if there any differences.

Hi, sorry to jump topic. at least it's still about protection?

Gust, your profile pic, is it me or do have some sort of bonnet deflector fitted?

If it, is it Toyotas own or 3rd party?

I spotted my car Pre-delivery and what you can see is the colour of the car Decuma Gray with the delivery white plastic over the bonnet. As an aside Toyota do sell bonnet mounted deflectors for the Rav, as I have thought about getting one as it might give the bonnet some protection as it does seem prone to stone chips.

Yeh, my blue one had a hell of a lot of chips and already noticed one or two on my new one already.

    • Locking Nut help
      By Popeye 59
      I have recently purchased a really nice, clean and well looked after T reg (1999) RAV4. The only issue is the lack of Toyota tools including the socket to remove the strangest locking nut I've seen. Luckily I found this out when replacing the rear windscreen wiper as you have to take the spare wheel off. Does anybody know how to deal with this? Bit anxious about getting a flat tyre. Already had the jokes about spare tyres, flat at the bottom jokes (my sons think they invented these funnies!!!)
    • Double din to single din radio conversion
      By Sarah White
      Hi,
      I have a 2005 Rav4 DVD XT5 and the satnav system has failed, meaning I have to change the whole unit as the radio won't work while the satnav doesn't.
      Too expensive to go double din again, so want to convert it to single din radio slot. Have found a CD Radio Stereo Single Din Fitting Kit Fascia Panel on Ebay which seems to come with the electrical components needed but do I need to do to do anything else to ensure the volume etc runs off the steering wheel like the existing system does?

    • Looking for RAV4 Automatic
      By Flemi21
      Hi all,
       
      Looking for Toyata RAV4, automatic transmission, for around the £3000/4000 mark. Would prefer 5 doors. 
       
      We we had a 1st generation RAV4 from new. Brilliant little car that lasted for years with no major issues. Unfortunately, someone wrote it off last month, breaking our hearts, felt like we lost a member of the family! 
       
      We're looking to replace it with another RAV4, so if anyone hears of one being sold, we would be very interested. 
       
      Thanks,
      Chris

      Hello All, just a quick intro from myself, showing why I'm here.  Recently got into Toyota by accident, I needed a car very quickly & an acquaintance said you can have my old Y reg Corolla for £200. Bodywork was in a bit of a state, but mechanically sound, two years later it's still going strong. So, just bought myself a 1999 Rav4 GX still impressed, so see how it goes.
