  1. Yes, screws provided went in those holes perfectly. Can't remember about underside, are there no holes there for square clips? I definitely fixed something there just can't remember what exactly.
  2. When I fitted mine, I just put screws in the original arch liner clips and they sat there perfectly fine. Still tight after more than three years.
  3. I have 2012 RAV4 III with sat nav and speed camera warning can be turned off in settings, I'd presume it would be similar on next generation.
  4. I've seen one yesterday twice, deffo not a demonstrator, same guy was driving it and it was few hours between me seeing it repeatedly.
  5. @daveh_rav4 3mm vibro + 5mm noise cancelling on the floor, the rest of the car 2mm + 3mm, it's become slightly heavier now as well 😂😂. Unfortunately, my OCD won't let me get away with old blanket thrown in the back 😂
  6. If it's just a road noise, it's quite normal, RAV4 is not a quietest car to start with, it has very little (or maybe it is right to say not at all) soundproofing. When I bought mine I took two cars for a test drive: KIA Sportage and RAV, both same model year and similar mileage. Despite the fact that KIA was diesel it was a lot quieter than RAV. After about 8 month of ownership the noise has done my head in and I soundproof the whole cabin. Took me 2 days work and about £500 for materials. It is now almost as quiet as my previous Rover 75.
  7. Yes, if the car drives as normal, it's ok to drive it to the garage.
  8. It can be quite a number of different faults showing same warning, take it for diagnostic to find the exact fault.
  9. Hi Dave. From what I've read on different RAV4 forums , quite often this combination of warning lights shows when brake pedal switch is faulty (and I think it's a common fault on pre-facelift RAV4 3rd generation). Hope it helps Kosta
  10. And that would be a doddle if the rear bumper on yours fitted the way it fitted on MK3 you won't even need to take it off.
  11. I think I might have an idea why. This was widely discussed on one of Russian RAV4 forums and lot of people say that in extremely low temperatures if you have this feature it knackers mirrors motors/mechanisms on opening the car after it's been parked overnight. Totally agree about parking sensors though, luckily for me the first owner got them installed by the dealer when he ordered the car.
  12. @andy_evans44 @Leckytech My mirror switch works exactly the way it should after I installed the controller i.e. button depressed - mirrors out, button pressed - mirrors in. You can operate mirrors in normal fashion when needed (getting through narrow places etc.) providing ignition is on, obviously 😁
  13. If you happen to be in South Shields you're always welcome to pop in for a cuppa 😀
  14. No problem, will try to answer as quick as I can 😀
  15. @Leckytech sorry for not responding, have been on holiday to Cuba, internet there is pretty much non-existent. Glad you managed to get it sorted in the end. For me the only difficult bit was to find the wire for locking as there is no impulse with the door open. I had to do it with the door close through the open window with tester pins pushed in the connector before the door was closed 😀. It was a bit tricky though. Enjoy your new feature!
