Land Cruiser 80??? 1993(Edit)

Full-time all wheel drive system. Viscous coupling locking (VX trim level only) or open (GS trim) center differential, can be forcibly locked manually using the low range lever.

On GS, the center differential is locked when in low range (2,49:1 ratio). This behavior, however, can be overridden by installing an OEM center differential switch. The wiring for the switch is already available in the car. [4]

Optional front and rear manually lockable differentials.

The Sienns description (three open differentials) is correct only for 2004-2010 model years. The current generation has no centre differential, driving the rear via a clutch instead; this is presumably the same system as the RAV4 III.

I have a 2002 Toyota Rav4. The rear differential seems to be leaking fluid. How difficult is it to replace the seal? Thanks.

not difficult at all.. if you have tools.. the bolts either are 12 or 14. most likely 14mm.. take those off, gently pry with flat head screw driver all the way around. use a dye grinder with a coarse biscuit to take off the old gasket seal then apply new silicone and reinstall, fill with new gear lube till it starts leaking thru the filler hole. this is assuming it's from the back of the diff not the front. if it's the front then it's a whole different way and if you are not experienced in doing this type of job, take it a shop that'll do it for you. hope this helps.

It depend on where the leak is coming from? rear differential big cover has not gasket but only a trace of liquid gasket sealand.

Jim, believe me I just resealed my 2002 rav4 awd rear differential and first you have to remove all fluid before you remove the #14 bolt then you will remove the old silicone with a razor blade since there is not gasket and if you use a grinder you will remove the mirror like face of both parts, believe me I just did it to my rear differential and by using liquid gasket maker after you clean both faces with maybe acetone every thing will ok.

The RAV4, at least in the USA from the 2006 model year, lost its center differential.
Toyota replaced it with a wet clutch pack at the rear axle, before the rear differential. [open front & rear]
Toyota did add a manual lockup function via button, but is likely overridden by the computer above a set speed.

Extra Info

2010 RAV4 falls into this category:
"Advanced electronically controlled all wheel drive systems can be pro-active and lock the traction device even before wheels start to slip - the need of all wheel drive is determined in real-time, based on the information that is collected from different sensors (i.e. g-force sensor, accelerator pedal position, etc.)."
