Lamp In Transmission Panel

Recommended Posts

How can one replace the Lamp in the Transmission shift panel . I asked the dealer, was told it will cost 1 hour labor. I brought the lamp but dont know how to replace it.

Any one who did this on a LS 400. I have 95 model.

Thanks

I have heard it was very easy to replace the bulbs. The Lexus dealer just put installed a new "airbag" warning light bulb in my car, as the previous owner had disconnected the system and removed the bulb, because they were obviously scared of the airbag. They said they were going to charge me $30. to test the airbag system, as they did not know what the problem was. They went ahead and fixed it after the problem was found (installed bulb & reconnected airbag) and only charged $1.50 for the bulb. I wish I had of known they had it out, as my "door open" light is also not working. That is no big deal though. All of my other warning and instrument lights work fine.

I guess if you did not want to do it yourself, that the dealer would probably do it for about $10-$20. or less.

I don't have the part number of the bulb. It's a 12 Volt incandescent T1-3/4 wedge base lamp (Not an LED). My dealer had it in stock for $2.23. Surprisingly cheap.

Steve:

Try removing the wood panel first. THat should expose any screws underneath the panel.
