  4. I have 285/60-18s on my '02. no problem what-so-ever. as a matter of fact, i think the 285/60 are proper size for the truck. looks great and rides great. check out the pics: www.the-happy-family.com/lexus/lx470.htm D.J. .
  5. If you would like some choices, :P I also have '02 with many aftermaket add-ons with 62K miles for sale. e-mail me if you are interested. dj.kim@digitalconsultants.org
  6. :) perhaps i should have updated my posting a while ago. it's been about a year already. i took the truck to Lexus dealership and they replaced it under warranty. no prob now. ^^ thank you anyway, Rudy. ^^ i really appreciate it. it's good to know "somebody" will eventually try to help.
  7. my '02 was in exactly same situation. after they replace my windshield, and after nine service visits (varying from overnight to multiday waiting), and countless calls to various support experts, the problem turned out to be the molding that was mentioned above. the seal above the windshield, on the roof on passenger side stuck out about 1/4" and that turned out to be the source of the howling noise. we replaced "that" as well but the new one stuck up a bit again... we ultimately glued that down flush and the noise was finally gone. send me e-mail and i'll send u the picture of the location of the part that i'm talking about. dj.kim@digitalconsultants.org D.J. .

  9. Read the posts before yours carefully. as a matter of fact, the post IMMEDIATELY before yours is about the very topic that you are asking. Hi all, I am a new member but have been hovering in the backround for many years! my 2004 RX330 just got totaled a little over a month ago and just got into an 03 LX470 and I love it! this thing blows the RX away! Anyways, just wanted to let anyone else know that this thing does work WITHOUT the module! Very easy and it took me about 30 minutes to do. I actually did it on my lunch break! It does look very intimidating, but if you follow these directions to the very last detail, it shouldnt be no problem! Now, if anyone out there knows or has done the bypass for the Nav that allows you to input addresses while your moving, that would take out most if not all the cons of the LX470's navigation/ dvd! Anyone know if this has been done? The button taps on the volume screen dont seem to work on the 03's.
  10. pretty interesting idea. i'm not sure if it'll work though... the very wire that i tapped to get the video signal to feed to the headrest monitors are the wire that sits between the changer and the head unit. it basically is the wire that feeds into the nav unit. instead of tapping at the location just outside of the changer, we are tapping on it at the other end of the cable... and when i select Map from nav, the screen on the headrests go blank. i actually think the changer stops feeding video out of the box once you hit map. it still feeds out sounds, but no video. if you can pull it off somehow, i'd love to hear about it. right now i have a overhead monitor with built in player (single DVD) that feeds itself and two headrest monitors. that would free up my nav screen if i need it. or i can switch the monitors to aux-1 (all three monitors) and it'll get the signal from the changer (six DVDs).

  11. fantastic! thanx for quick reply. my LX has about 57k on her. so i'd say perhaps another couple of years before doing the t-belt & water pump. i'll keep that in mind. thanx again. D.J. .
  12. hello all. at what mileage do you change the timing belt on LX? and is that something DIY-able? if not DIY, is it something that you would go to any mom and pop shop? my LX is still under warranty, i don't want them to blame anything on mom & pop work if i need any warranty issues resolved. thank you for your inpute in advance.
  13. what part of northern VA are you at? i can show you in person if want.
  14. I got one of those clear screen protectors from E-bay. it covered the areas that were rubbed off and I can't even tell the diffrence anymore. you just have to be super careful applying the cover. make sure not to leave any fingerprints on the backside of the cover. D.J. .
  15. you know it was not the second connector from the right. i believe it was on the far left corner connector (if you are looking at the unit from the back). however, here's the lifesaver. of all the wires on all of the top connectors, there is only ONE red wire with gray spots on. that's how i found it. the other red wire with kinda gray line was the line that you cut for the DVD bypass already. that one should be cut and taped up already. this video wire is the ONLY one left.
