|Comment||Thanks Ted. Don't over complicate is your key statement. I'll crawl under the car and see if I can better align the two pieces and not worry about it. It is always nice to talk to someone who has actually serviced these cars for a living. As a side note, I recently replaced the EGR VSV on this same car ('97 Rav4). I'm sure the Toyota engineers thought they were being funny when they mounted that thing. Real funny is what I kept telling myself. Not!|
