Roof Rack End Caps

Recommended Posts

2000 LX470

I am missing two of the roof rack end caps....Lexus has none in stock and item may be discontinued. My color is taupe, but I can repaint here.

These caps are about 9.5" long by about 3" wide, and there are 4.

Anyone find replacements yet?

would appreciate an answer

It looks like you have been looking for these parts for a long time. It might be time to look for another solution - seeing if you can find an aftermarket rack that could be adapted to fit or removing the rack and plugging the holes.

I'm in the same boat with my 2000 LS400 - a few parts are no longer available. I forgot the U.S. requirement for supplying replacement parts - it is either six or seven years after a car's original sale date.

I am confident they are there, because the same rack was used from about 1998 to 2006, so there must be hundreds of LX470 in junkyards. I just need the right front for now.

And they are probabliy all missing their end caps! (Kidding!) Perrycraft makes roof rails for the LX470 - I assume they include end caps but I don't know if they fit they same holes as your OEM rack. You could ask them: http://www.perrycraft.com/

The following website is a vendor and shows the price for Perrycraft roof rails for the LX470: http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/details/QQLexusQQLX470QQPerrycraftQQRoof_RailsQQ19982007QQP56DSXX55B.html?apwcid=P1135867996W43b3f85c7ab9e&apwidPCfd7v4

I wonder if the roof rails on the LX470 were installed at the port of entry. I don't see them in the regular parts list for the LX470 including the 2000. It has always seemed odd to me that importers install such an incredible number of features, including standard equipment, at the port of entry.
