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.

      Hi Guys
      While since I've been here but let me get straight to the point.
      3 weeks ago I run very, very low on oil due to a leaking oil filter. The filter was replaced and oil filled back up.
      A week later whilst my partner was driving the car the turbo failed dramatically. I had the car recovered and proceeded to remove the turbo, which was intact but well knackered. Not the easiest job I've ever done.
      I have purchased a reconditioned unit with new gaskets. I have also drained the oil. I do keep reading that I need to replace the oil feed pipe. Is this necessary? I personally feel the cause of the failure being lack of oil not a blockage.
      There is also oil in the intercooler and various pipes. The intercooler and pipes have been standing draining for a week now and have been wiped out as best as can be. Will this be suffice?
      The vehicle is a 2002 Rav4 D4D.
      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Just bought a new Rav4 Invincible and sorted out the bells and whistles. (mostly)
      In preparation for a ferry sea crossing,does anyone know how I can lock the car but not set the alarm, in case the trip is a bit choppy?
      Also, there is small green thermometer icon on the right of the rev counter which goes out a short while after startup, which puzzles me.
      Any help appreciated

      Due to Sale of T180 RAV4 I am selling a New Spare Bridgestone Runflat designed for use with the RAV4 T180 (2006-2009). This is an 18" diameter alloy wheel.   Selling for £250 - no offers! Martin@thecarpies.com   Prefer collection as it is very heavy - the box it came in is not in great condition !    Located in South Buckinghamshire - SL8   This is a bargain, cost over £450 new, as it does contain the following components (plus the alloy).   listed elsewhere - grab a bargain and piece of mind.   Cash on collection or  arrange your own courier.   Apologies for upside down images !
