Im after some advice please, a friend went and jump started the wife's rav but first put the cables on wrong way round and has blown the 140 amp bi-metal fuse located in the black plastic cover on the pos side of the battery. Can anyone tell me were i can get a new one other than dealer only or can I get away with soldering the gap?
Thanks in advance and sorry if this has already been discussed elsewhere.
We currently own two Rav4's here in Georgia, USA. (2011 Sport & 2016 XLE)
We intend to bring the 2016 (built 2015) Rav4 XLE back to the UK next year. Currently US Rav4's do not have rear fog lamps fitted (only front).
In order to comply with UK road laws we obviously need working rear fog lamps.
My technical question is does anyone know if it is a simple swap of the rear light assembles (complete) and is the wiring harness likely to be suitable for the that transition?
Toyota USA unfortunately are unable to answer this question, or provide a Certificate of Conformance/Emission Data!
Any pointers or information would be well received.
Had a bit of a crash in my Rav4 XT5 and the off-side side-step had to be replaced with a new one, as these come in pairs I have the other one which i'm listing on eBay
If anyone is after a replacement side-step please DM me - Full set costs £280 from Toyota and would consider sensible offers.
Looking to get around £60 ono and buyer collects or arranges collection at their own cost.

So I have a problem with my 2003 2.0 D4D Rav4 that is similar as described in here:
As there was no real end to the discussion I ended up doing diagnostics for it. Here's the results: It came up with 3 fault codes:
P0101 Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Range/Performance
P0105 Manifold Absolute Pressure/Barometric Pressure Circuit
P1251 Step Motor for Turbocharger Control Circuit (Intermittent)
My question is what do these actually mean, which parts are to be looked at here, how to locate them, and are they a DIY job or is it better to leave it to the pros? Not afraid to get my hands dirty but never messed around with airflow and electronics.. Thanks!
We have had our 2010 toyoya rav4 XTR D4D for 6 months and took it to the garage for a recall and they have now found out that our coolant is leaking and think the head gasket has failed. We are looking at a minimum of £1800 but may be way more to fix the problem. Gutted is an understatement. A friend alerted us to the fault with the toyota head gaskets and the agreement that toyota will replace an engine if the car is less than 7 years old and under 103000 miles. We fit both of these criteria but after a lot of reading on here and other sites its looks to me that the problem with the engine got sorted in 2009 which means our engine should have been fine. Is this right? Does anyone have any helpful information, we are terrified of the financial problems this could cause.
Thanks in advance.
