Dismantling Manual 2012 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid
This guide was developed to educate and assist dismantlers in the safe handling of Toyota RAV4 EV electric vehicles. RAV4 EV dismantling procedures are similar to other non-electric Toyota vehicles with the exception of the high voltage electrical system. It is important to recognize and understand the high voltage electrical system features and specifications of the Toyota RAV4 EV electric vehicle, as they may not be familiar to dismantlers.
High-voltage electricity powers the electric motor, DC/DC converter, battery coolant heater, air conditioning (A/C) compressor, cabin coolant heater and inverter. All other automotive electrical devices such as the headlights, radio, and gauges are powered by a separate 12 Volt auxiliary battery. Numerous safeguards have been designed into the RAV4 EV to help ensure the high voltage, approximately 386 Volt, Lithium-ion (Li-ion) Electric Vehicle (EV) battery assembly is kept safe and secure in an accident.
The Li-ion EV battery assembly contains sealed batteries that are similar to rechargeable batteries used in some battery-operated power tools and other consumer products. The electrolyte is absorbed in the cell plates and will not normally leak out even if the battery is cracked.
High voltage cables, identifiable by orange insulation and connectors, are isolated from the metal chassis of the vehicle. Additional topics contained in the guide include:
- Toyota RAV4 EV identification.
- Major electric vehicle component locations and descriptions.
By following the information in this guide, dismantlers will be able to handle RAV4 EV electric vehicles as safely as they dismantle a conventional non-electric automobile.
