  1. Well it’s running nice and smoothly but there is just a very , very slight vibration when I rest my foot lightly on the clutch pedal ... Now apparently I shouldn’t be resting my foot on the clutch pedal in the first place it’s something I’ve done since I started driving about 45 years ago so it’s gonna be very hard to eradicate ... Thing I never noticed anything with the old worn in clutch ?!
  2. Hi peeps .. Just picked it up tonight .. They didn’t say and I forgot to ask but presumably we just drive it normally ?! Can we use it at 65- 70mph on the motorway or not ??
  3. Thoughts on price from a small local garage ?? ( in England)
  4. Hi It is manual transmission... clutch slip sounds most likely given it appears to be getting more noticeable... just recently. Would it suggest a NEW clutch or can they be adjusted? Any ideas as to a ball-park figure for a new clutch ?? It’s a small , local garage just two brothers and they tend to put on cheaper generic parts rather than Toyota ones . We only do 5,000 miles per year and it is 20 years old ..
  5. Hi ... a few weeks ago the Rav suddenly lost power and the engine raced for a split second .. I just thought I’d missed the gear or something . Anyways it’s happened a couple of times since but it was more noticeable today .. feels like a kinda random loss of power for a split second but then it’s fine . The engine is running super smoothly and the gear changes are smooth as always .. Any thoughts?? I have booked it in to our local garage for tomorrow...
  6. Intriguing.. I’ll be interested to see the suggestions Good luck anyways Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. Only to say that we have a Rav4 2002 and it runs like a dream and still breezes through each MOT year after year .. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. Yep £150 each - even for 2002 Ravs !! I bought two generic ‘RAV4’ key cases off eBay for £4.99 then put the old key innards in them !! Tesco cut them both and put two new batteries in for a tenner each so we got two brand new keys for under £25 rather than the £300 quoted by our local Toyota dealers ..

  9. It is .. Thank you so much !! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. Help !! I can only start new threads with a single post ... I can’t post ANY replies to ANY threads not even my own !! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. Hi Years ago we bought our first RAV4 Mk1 and I loved everything about it apart from it was a tad noisy inside .. when I had it in our local garage for a service and check up they did a few little things and one surprised me cheered me up as it came back so much quieter .. we could hear the music better and weren’t as aware of the road sound.. I’m sure he said it was a cheap part .. something like a steering gasket or whatever ?? Anyways our 17 yrs old RAV4 Mark 2 has started getting noisier and noisier ... any ideas what part I need fitted ?? Thank you !! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. Hey guys . We've got an O2 registered RAV4 ( 2 door ) and I'm wondering what to have the tyre pressures set at for a road trip around Cornwall and Devon , just two adults and we well be doing around 800 miles, I'd guess . I read somewhere that you can set them lower for a softer ride ( but lower mpg ) and higher for a harder , faster ride ( better mpg ) . We'd prefer a lovely soft ride but I don't want to wear the tyres out unevenly .... Any suggestions ??
