Rear Trailing arms for 2014 rav4 2L diesel AWD


Recommended Posts


As far as I'm aware they are not made yet for the aftermarket. We sell a lot, I can do them mail order for you at a discount, you probably know the cost already :eek:

Is it the arm or the bush that needs replacing? The dealer will sell you the full arm and it’ll cost you an arm and a leg, aftermarket will supply the bushes and any remotely competent garage can press them out for a fraction of the cost.

My vehicle had bush failure and rectified by replacing arms under warranty. Concerned by this short life I contacted Toyota Uk and they replied thus:

 

"Received reply from Samantha Betts (Specialist Case Manager) saying that there has been a specification change in the bushes since my car was produced and they do not expect this issue to recur on my vehicle".

Any chance they may consider a Goodwill Claim for you? Although in my experience they don't seem to familiar with the term goodwill. But possibly worth enquiring especially if your model has the same arms as mine.

I've had exactly the same issue. 25,000 miles from new, 2014 Rav 4; vehicle has been well looked after, and yet rear trailing arm bushes have de-bonded. Contacted Toyota and they are not willing to help out with cost of repair. £540.

It’s frustrating that Toyota seemingly ‘improved’ either the design/manufacturing and anecdotal evidence suggests that they are known to fail earlier than is reasonably expected, but they still want to charge you for the full control arm and bushes rather than just supply the bush kit despite the ease of pressing them in. Thankfully the after-market does.
