Curious how many Lexus owners have had a brake actuator failure. We have a 2013 RX350; we bought a new RX450, and parked the 350 over the holidays planning to sell. When I started it, numerous warning lights came on: the "Check AWD System" light, the engine light, and the VSC and Traction Control System lights. Upon taking the vehicle to our dealer, were we told that the brake actuator assembly needed to be replaced. The cost to do so was $3,855.12. I found there was a NHTSA recall on 2/12/2014 for this issue, requiring a software upgrade to avoid the failure of the brake actuator. The dealer advises that software was updated in 2015 - which obviously didn't work because the brake actuator still failed. Lexus is refusing to cover this, even though the predicted failure occurred anyway. If anyone else has experienced this, please let me know. I am preparing litigation on this issue.

Hello everyone, this is my first time posting on a forum. I am wondering if anybody has done tt supra front calipers on the front, and moved the stock sc400 front calipers to the rear. My rear caliper seized up and I was looking at buying remanufactured tt supra calipers all around, but the rear calipers are absurdly high in price for some reason no matter where I look. So I started looking at different caliper options, ls400, supra, remanufactured sc, etc. But maybe this could be a new setup unless somebody else has already thought of this before (which I have a feeling somebody did). Thanks for the help in advance.
Hey All! Bleeding my brakes was one of the items I tackled for the 120k mile service on my car. Using a pressure bleeder made it fast and painless. In fact the most tedious part of the job was getting the wheels off each corner as I worked.
Of course I created a video detailing the process:
I have a 1999 LX470, 140k miles. I noticed there is strange noise (sounds like servo motor or some kind of !Removed! sound). when I first turn the key to light up the dash also when I press brake several times. It also happens frequently during driving when I press brake pedal. Brake still functions. Here is a YouTube link. 1999 LX470 Noise Behind Dash
you might need to put on headphone to hear the noise clearly in the YouTube video. Just wondering what the problem is . Any thoughts and gauidance are appreciated.
