Yes, the Rav4 clutch self-adjusts. How do you defeat the synchromesh when
changing gears? Are you hearing or feeling grinding when shifting? Is it
more prevalent when downshifting? In all the gears or just 1 or 2?

Is the transmission fluid the original factory fill or has it been replaced?

I would take it back to the dealer for evaluation. It is possible that the
hydraulic clutch is not working properly or may need adjustment.

I'm guessing you must be out of the US. I wish I could tell you but my 2006
RAV4 wasn't available with a manual trans so I'm driving an automatic :-(
