  1. There isn't any filter on the 4th gen, just a mesh thingy like in your pictures. I also didn't find it particularly dusty when I did mine so not sure how often cleaning is needed. By the way, hybrids are only available from gen 4 onwards ie. gen 4 and 5 only.
  2. Interestingly, Russian made RAVs are only distributed to Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. Ukraine on the other hand get theirs from Japan like the rest of Europe.
  3. Thanks for checking. Non hybrid GSR55 ie. 3.5 V6 4WD.
  4. Hello, I'm looking at Estima pics online (2006 onwards) and it looks like the indicator stalk is on the right hand side of the steering wheel. Is it possible to convert it to UK spec? I once had a Hyundai i800 (Starex) rental and it was kinda embarrassing to keep turning the wipers on at roundabouts. Thanks, Will
  5. Cross referencing katashiki codes in Toyota official tech doc, Excel is the top trim whereas Dynamic is mid trim with an expensive option (bi-tone colour). This is for the normal hybrid as I haven’t looked at PHEV.
  6. The pictures above are from the latest gen. On the 4.4 hybrid you won't see a motor on the rear axle but rather just arrows indicating the flow of energy.
  7. Welcome, you are the online trading arm of Fish Bros Swindon yes?
  8. 328mm rotor is matched with a dual-piston caliper which as far as I know is only available on the hybrid version (UK only - not sure about elsewhere).
  9. When using the trickle charger you should also make sure that the charging current is less than 5A. This is normally stated on the top of your battery pack (Panasonic OEM). Note that this is for the hybrid, I don't know if it is the same for non-hybrid.
  10. After some investigation, the last 2 letters of the part number (89341-42060-2B) indicate the colour of the painted part. 2B is grey, you will need to check with your local dealer for the exact colour code matching your bumper.
  11. It does sound like your sensor is still working and was only unseated from the bumper. When I destroyed a rear sonar on mine there was a Parking Assist Malfunction error on the dash immediately. You will probably need to take the front bumper off to inspect if there's any damage to the mounting clip or the sensor itself. If things go well then unplug the sensor and reseat the sensor from the outside of the bumper and re-plug the wire harness. The hole on the bumper should have a small cut-out that lets you push the sensor in at an angle. Part numbers: Sensor 89341-42060-2B, Clip 89348-12020 This video might help with removing the front bumper: PS. you can turn off parking assist in a menu with your steering wheel buttons
  12. You can also check the vehicle specs as installed at factory: https://www.toyota-tech.eu/Euro5.aspx Just need to input your VIN number.
  13. I also went with this but ordered a pair of harness from Aliexpress with the leads pre-soldered (Toyota Speaker Wire Harness Adapter Tacoma 2016). Everything went smoothly but I did have to re-drill the Alpine mounting holes so the existing screws could fit. The new speakers sound a lot clearer so 32 quids well spent and thank you both for the suggestion.
  14. Here are what I can find: 3, 4, 5, 6 (B, W, P, R): to microphone 13, 14, 15 (R, GR, Y): to intrusion sensor 1, 18 (W, W): to map light switch DOOR/OFF/ON (1 is constant 12V, 18 is controlled by the ECU to fade from 0V to 12V when a door is open and then closed) 20 (W): ground Hope it helps but please do double check with voltmeter etc.
  15. Looks to me 114kW is the output of the combustion engine alone. AFAIK the only 2.5L engine on offer in GB was the hybrid 2AR-FXE (4th gen Rav)
