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.

      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 !

      I have a genuine LINDOP TOYOTA chip kit for sale because I have now gone to the dark side and bought a RAV4 Hybrid.  This kit was purchased by me from Lindop in April 2014 and was fitted to my  May 2013 RAV4.4 with the 2.2 diesel engine.  The car was an Invincible All Wheel Drive with the 6 speed Automatic gearbox.  The chip kit has wiring loom, all instructions, receipt from Lindop and blanking plug.  When bought it just had the latest software update, (these chips can be updated at Lindop at anytime just by sending the chip box to them and the car can still be use by inserting the blanking plug into the chip's loom)
      I removed the chip in April this year ready for the sale of the car and boy, did I notice the difference.  The engine lost its verve (torque to the techs among us), the gearbox lost it's smoothness and the engine wanted to rev higher before up-shifting.  I had set the chip on level 4 out of 10 as, after some experimentation this suited me the best.  The obvious question is did I save fuel? Well, because the drive was totally different I can't say I did but I certainly did not use more.  The value for me with this chip was the smoothness and the torque which gave a wide band of usable power which could surprise some of the X5, Range Rover and the like road users when I wanted it to.
      I am looking for £225 inc P&P or you can pick it up from me for less, I live in Milton Keynes.
