  1. Yes the head unit is very nice although I will be replacing it with a double din touch screen one like I had in my Volvo. I pulled off my door panels a few days ago to do some work on them and I was a bit let down to see that the speakers where Pioneer, I'm a Kenwood fan but you can't have it all.
  2. Sent you an email. Mostly interested in headlights (driver side for the most part as passenger side might have been damaged by crash) and front struts.
  3. Holy crap, I have been looking for this for almost a year now, I can't believe I never found it. I finally got my part in thanks to your instructions. You rock!
  4. Selling my 1995 Lexus SC300. I have a Blazer now and, although I hate to part with it, I no longer need nor have time for this car. It has 168k miles and has less than 500 of those from me as it was my "sports car". The car is in very good shape and runs like a charm!. It has the same Non Turbo 2JZ engine found in a Toyota Supra (which was twin turbo) and it shows, this car is fast! If you want to check it out please give me a call at (PM FOR NUMBER). Possible trade for 2004+ vehicle. Trades please email, buyers please call. Pictures up here: http://appleton.craigslist.org/cto/2576650301.html
  5. This may sound like a stupid question but we all have to learn somehow and I've never dealt with this area of the car. My radiator overflow reservoir (at least that's what I think it is) is always empty, however I noticed that it has a Full line so I put in some coolant but now it is gone and the reservoir is empty (although not completely dry) again. Do I have a leak? Is this normal? Should I take it into the shop? The car, a 95 SC300, doesn't overheat at all and gauges normal temps.
  6. I am looking for an upper door panel (part that goes around the window) interior trim brown in color.If you have one please let me know, my car is a 95 although it shouldn't matter I don't think. Lexus wanted $1200 and only sold all the panels together and there is no way I am doing that.
  7. Thanks for the advice. Yeah this car is built pretty tight and solid.
  8. I was wondering if anyone knew how to install/replace the mirror ECU that tends to go bad in these cars (95 SC300). I have the new one, plugged it up and it worked but I'm having the damnedest time getting the old one out. I have taken the dash apart as far as I know how I can get to the bottom screw but there is another one up top that I just can't get to no matter what I do. Any suggestions? If you know of any dash diagrams that would help too. Thanks so much guys.
  9. Oh lord, that helps so much. I searched on their forums too and I guess I wasn't using the right words. Hopefully this will help me get it fixed today! Thanks!
  10. My passenger seat seems to have some problems. It has power, all the cables are connected and the seat back goes up and down and the left side rail goes back and forth but the right side rail "seems" to move only about an inch and then the seat starts to go sideways. I plan on taking it out tomorrow because I found some info on how to fix a power seat in a much more recent Toyota but I was wondering what your guys thoughts were on this problem. I have searched everywhere and I seem to be the only one it is happening to. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

    As the topic says, I am brand new here. I also just got a 95 Lexus SC300, my dream car ever since BCT (Military Police Reservist, yes boo :P). I finally found one and couldn't pass it up. I live in Wisconsin, my other car is a Volvo S40. The car is basically in mint condition other than a few scratches, it just needs some simple work such as replacing the mirror ecu, bulbs (did that today, took forever), antenna, and passenger seat sticks on the right side. After all that is done I'm going to reupholster the interior to match the dark brown and tan of the dash. I don't wanna touch the exterior other than rims because it is such a beautiful design already. Anyway that's me, if there are any other Lexus drivers in Wisconsin give a shout, this state sucks.
