Yes due to the water pump is under the engine. That looks like the average dealer price. You can probably save $100-$200 going to a non dealer and using the Asin water pump which is the same used by Toyota dealers.6 cylinder/2007 Rav
Is replacing the water pump difficult? Dealer wants 571 CanD to do it.
Thanks MB777,The 2007 Rav4 V6 is very different from the 1998 mentioned. It's basically nuts and bolts (no timing belt, or chain in your case to worry about) but is fairly involved. You will need to work from the top/bottom doing some of the work through the wheel-well, and raise/lower the engine with a supporting mount removed for access -- this will require the vehicle to be on jackstands, while using a jack to raise/lower the engine. You will need a good selection of hand-tools, and ill leave that at that.
Try doing some Internet (maybe YouTube) searches for 2gr-fe water pump replacement so you can visualize what's involved before you tear in. It's certainly doable for someone in their driveway, but I wouldn't recommend that for everybody.
