D2R Headlights Don't Fit My 2002 Is300

Recommended Posts

All the D2R lights I see have round black bases but the low beams in my car have a silver base with two prongs and a grey wire attached to each. So I can't connect them. I did not see any way to remove the base from the old bulb. Do some IS300s use a different bulb? The old one looks more like halogen. How can I find the right bulb?

I just checked my spare bulb, i only installed one of a pair, and yes its black round base with silver contacts. with no wire. I don't remember exactly how this fits, but it does. you remove the bulb from the grey holder. I suggest you do a search on YouTube or Google to see how its done.

I took the bulb back out and went by the part number on that. It turned out to need a halogen bulb, a 12V55 OSRAM 64210XV. So I searched for that part number and that bulb fit fine. Even though every part store and every web site I had checked said it required a high intensity H2D bulb, apparently some IS300s use regular halogen bulbs.

      Thinking of upgrading my '07 RX400h headlights with LEDs.  Open to replacing the assembly if required. 
      Anyone done this already?  Pitfalls?  Shortcuts? Recommendations? Thanks.

      How to replace a high beam headlight on a LS460 2009.

      Fellow Lexus Owners, Has anyone wanted to improve the High Beam Headlights on a 2013 GS450H??
      I know the High Beams get activated by a small mirror being moved by a solenoid, diverting the available HID Light toward the side beveled reflector.
      For me, its just doesn't seem like enough of that light is getting projected out to the surrounding area.
      I have even considered changing the headlight assemblies to the LED Version that was an option back then. Then I saw the cost .....Picked myself off the floor, and said.....O/K, what is plan B, C, or D.
      Any Ideas???.

      Bought my son a used 2005 IS300 that had obviously been kissed in front left (driver) side. Car drove OK so not too concerned. Tried to fill window washer reservoir and it just ran out on ground. Looking for correct reservoir online but even tho I inut IS300 part always comes back as fitting ES330. Is this the right reservoir or is there another.

      I have a 2004 Lexus ES 330, my daytime running headlights currently do not come on.  The automatic lights still work in the fact that the night lights will engage when the sensor detects the appropriate level of darkness.  I took the car in and they wanted $400 just to hook the system up to find the error.  Is there a fuse or something I can try and replace or how can I do the repair myself?  $400 seems a little high to me to just diagnose the issue without it being fixed.
