  1. It didn't look like the wipers were in the winter position (I didn't even know there was such a thing). I poped off the cap and moved the wiper down a notch. I marked the original position. Seems like when I turn then off they return to the original position. Drivers side doesn't appear to be hitting the A pillar though I don't know what will happen when driving down the road (I'll check this out the next time that it rains). Seems like there is some play in the arm. Is this normal?
  2. I have an '05 ES330. I have an issue with the wiper blades. At slow speed, they work fine with the tip on the drivers side coming about 3/4" to 1" from the edge of the glass. At high speed, however, the tip hits the metal on the edge of the glass. Not hard, just a thumping which is very annoying. Is this just an adjustment or is there a worn part. I'm kind of surprised that I don't have the issue at both speeds. Thanks
  3. OK - I delayed long enough. Got around to replacing the sunshade today. The directions in the thread regarding replacing the subwoffer are spot on and get you 99% there. I'll add the following comments as respects the sunshade replacement: 1) As noted in the subwoffer thread, removing the seat back is a royal PITA. Get someone to help you 2)Removal of the latch anchor bar on the passanger side - not really necessary if you have the tools to get at the seat belt anchor bolt which lies under neath it. I did not remove it and it did not create any issues. 3) I removed the sholder harness
  4. I did look and it does not appear that the shade can be accessed that way. Local Lexus dealer did advise you had to remove the rear deck to access it. I note that the thread on the sub-woofer replacement was for an older model Lexus. Do you think it is still applicable to a 2005? Thanks As the diagram shows that Jim, (Bad Santa) just posted, your right that you can't get to it from the trunk. Look at the diagram and you'll see the shade tracks mount to the shelf under the rear deck, or "package shelf" as is the proper name. It does look like you will have to remove the fabric covered

  6. Thank You. This is exactly what I was looking for.
  7. How about removal of the rear deck. That has to be removed to replace the shade. Any thoughts on that? Does the Center brake light need to be removed first?
  8. When you say dead, have you checked the fuse for the shade to make sure it's not blown? On my previous 05'- ES330, it was a 10amp fuse, but I can't remember if it was in the cabin fuse block or the fuse block under the hood. I have never removed the rear seat or deck. Someone else will come along and add some more info. Also, do a search of the forum and see if you'll find more information. It's not the fuse. It does move, just doesn't track properly.
  9. I have a 2005 ES330 with a dead rear power sun shade. Can anyone provide details on removinf the rear seat and the rear deck. I need to remove both to get at the sun shade. Thanks...
  10. I have a new ES330 wtih 700 miles on it. It is rated for 21 mpg for the City. I'm getting under 16. Is there a break in period during which you get poor mpg? Is there another issue? Thanks...
  11. I've just purchased a 2005 ES330 with the Mark Levinson Audio package. Manual makes no mention as to whether or not the changer (or the in-dash single CD player) will play MP3s. Has anyone tried? Thanks...
