2005 Toyota Rav4: thermostat..easy as removing the housing..swapping

This answer was rated:

How do you change the thermostat in a 2005 Toyota Rav4? Is it as easy as removing the housing and swapping it out? Please advise.

Hello I will help you with your question,


Yes you remove the housing and replace the thermostat but getting to the housing is a little tough. The "book" time to replace the thermostat is 1.4 hours so it will take some time.
