I agree it's not that difficult. My LS400 had a way around it without removing the cover.

10 minutes more work.

Dougjohn, That was too easy. But it did liven my spirits. This was my first time in this forum. I was worried when yours was my only response.

Thanks again to both of you.

Mobile 1 5W30 is the only thing I have

EVER put in my LX470. I have ordered K&N oil filers on a recomendation from a friend but have not tried them yet.

What makes the K&N oil filter better???

But, I'd stay away from the K&N air filters. I think they have better flow because they don't filter as well as the OEM filters and will allow more dirt into the engine. IMHO.

K&N oil filters do not seem to get gunked up as much as Fram's.

I have K&N air filters on LS400, LX740 & a Porsche 928. From my experience on those different vehicles I prefer the K&N in a BIG WAY over the standard air filters. I have talked to my mechanics and have cleaned the filters myself regularly. The oil treatment applied to the K&N fliters appears to catch more dirt than a standard filter while allowing the car to operate more efficiently due to considerably less restricted air flow. I personally ran a test with a standard filter on a Toyota Landcruiser vs my LX 470 with a K&N. The Landcruiser belongs to a friend who travels the same way I do to work on a daily basis and he drives his car more on the weekends than I do. After three months my K&N looked like it had more dirt in it than his standard filter on the landcruiser which had been driven 2200 more miles :-? Not exactly a scientific test but after it was completed I purchased the filters for the LS400 & the 928 and have not regretted that decision in any way. :cheers:
