  1. yes you can its a direct swap from a celica or avensis or mr2 you will see if you go to a breakers I have them
  2. this is what you need http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TOYOTA-COROLLA-LANDCRUISER-CARINA-HILUX-LEXUS-ETC-2-BUTTON-REMOTE-ALARM-KEY-FOB-/331463382155?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item4d2cc1d48b then this http://www.toyota-tech.eu/aimuploads/%7B4CD304D2-A41B-91D3-284C-8CC4FE5FA41B%7D/Celica_TVSSIIIB.pdf the control unit is placed under the stereo on the left hand side I think it is. let us know how you get on its easy to programme.
  3. ok here goes the 2002 model basically has the same setup as the early rav4s 94 to 2000 the only difference was the 1.8 which was 2wd they are all pemenent 4wd but the vx ang nrg also have rear torsen limited slip diff
  4. just leave that part in situ and remove the bracket that is attached to the engine block something like 4 nut and two bolts
  5. just to let you know, from that i know this is a safe engine. done timing belt a few times on these once a belt snapped on mine on a saturday found a belt sunday morning, up and running sunday afternoon. belt was 14 pound fixed after a few hours work. so get your spanners out and get it back on the road. my 1998 rav is upto 158,300 miles now, plus it runs on lpg since 86,000 so dont give up on it. ultra reliable. just dont get robbed getting it fixed.
  6. i dont think your mpg will be that high more like 22 - 26 check for any clunks from the rear diff bushes pedal hardness of clutch , my origonal i got 148,000 miles from it check sills for rust plus rust on the k frame at the front smoke on start up from cold, valve stem seals leaking - livable aslong as you keep a eye on the oil level. what milage has it got
  7. what you need to do is put your key in the ignition turn it to acc or on but dont start the car when that is done push the green button for more than 2 seconds which will make the red light near your gear stick (alarm indicator light) illuminate whilst this light is lit hold both alarm fob buttons the box will click and indicators will flash. it should work then. all doors need to be closed i think
  8. How are you programming the fob. Where the alarm ecu is there's a screwed and rivited parts where the button is. I'll find the procedure later but you press that button for a couple off seconds. Red light flashes then you have like 10 seconds to press the lock button on the fob.

    Gear Stick

    Hi I seem to have a problem with my gear stick its moves into gear fine when cold but when then car has warmed up and driven for a bit its hard to select a gear mainly left to right motion. Even when the engine is off it can stay in the left or right position till everything has cooled down. What do you think guys

    Lpg Conversion

    have a look on tinley tech i think they do kits you can fit yourself. it also depends on how long your keeping the car if its ages its worth it. plus its makes it dual fuel which is useful for very long journeys

    Lpg Conversion

    apparently the conversion is best on the the early rav4s esp single point. mine was done at worsley autogas but got is reconfigured at g and n auto in helmshore. after the reconfigure it was way better. i went to g and n because i basically had a fall out with worsley lpg. cost was about a grand. it has a 60 ltr tank with a usable volume of 48 ltrs i normally fill up when red light comes on which is about 35 ltrs i get about 180 miles from that but im heavey footed. plus it uses flash lube to stop vavle seat ression 5 litre bottle lasts about a year or less. if you have any more questions just ask

    Lpg Conversion

    my 1998 rav is lpg got it converted about 3-4 years ago when the car had 86k now car has 152k had no problems and at around 65p a litre well worth it i think. mine is only single point injection so cheaper to install
