Two Questions Regarding An 08' Is350

Hi. I would like to know if there's a special tool or an easy way to remove those annoying pins that hold the engine covers down. I can get the covers off by lifting up, but those pins seem to fly everywhere.

Also, where is the oil filter located?

I changed my pins for some more sturdy ones I bought at NAPA.

Bartkat, which pins did you buy at Napa? I stopped by Lexus parts and picked a few for about $3.50 a piece!!! Am hoping to run over to Pepboys or Kragens to pick something more durable up.

I looked at what they had and went by the size. I got ones that have a pin in the middle that you pull up to release and push down to lock. The tops are a little bigger around than the originals and none of them have broken. I had trouble with the prongs breaking on the originals.

I got two bags and had some to spare. They are also a little longer where they go through the holes.
