  1. Hi Lexucan,

    I can not locate your instructions on removing the instrument needles on a ES300. Would you please email me the insructions at prised35914@mypacks.net

    or tell me how to locate them.

    Thank you very much!!!!!!

  2. hello Lexucan: I want to try your needle repair on my ES300. I found the instructions, but then lost them and can't find them again. Can you tell me how to finds them on the site?

  3. If you want your car to look more like a BMW, why not buy a BMW? :chairshot:
  4. Thanks for the info. The moisture goes away after about 8-10 hours. Doesn't happen all the time. I'll give this a try. Thanks. Tim gbhrps gives good advice. I used the same technique on one of my taillight assemblies. It doesn't take much moisture to produce what looks like a LOT of condensation on the inside of the lens.
  5. EXCELLENT! Congratulations! And of course, you'll want to show your appreciation for the help by posting lots of pics! That is, if we can ever get you out from behind the steering wheel of your sexy new ride! :P
  6. Well this thread is obviously going nowhere fast. With any luck it will fade away into LOC's cavernous database of threads under the category of "USELESS" and never see the light of day again. :whistles: Can I get an AMEN?
  7. Styling and technology-wise, I'd go for the 350 without hesitation, but as Steve pointed out, the first model year for the 5th generation ES was plagued with quite a few potential issues. As far as the mileage is concerned, 65K is peanuts. Of course, my '93 ES is still purring along with 275K miles on the ODO, so little wonder I would think that.
  8. ;) they not mean it goes to show you how many real losers are in the world and they show up in many different forms :D My point exactly (see below): Isn't that the 'Superman Edition' of the 2nd gen ES in that pic? I've never actually seen one before. Very rare! IIRC, it comes with special badging and a plastic super-hero lunchbox instead of the luggage you would get with the Coach Edition. :P
  9. Sounds like a cool name to me...so post some pics. :D
  10. im talking about the plastic on the outside where the es300 badge should be The taillight assembly is a factory sealed unit. You can't just take the outer cover part off and replace it. You'll need to replace the whole right side assembly. I have one (same year) that is in good physical condition. PM me if you are interested.
  11. Wow, no kidding! Musta taking some digging to dredge this one up lol Anyways, Lexus must have gone to a cheaper production process for the '95 - '96 lenses which left those horizontal lines in them. I can't see them actually intentionally engineering the lines into the lenses. They certainly don't add any aesthetic enhancement, IMO.
  12. I think this is a pretty common issue with the 2nd generation ES (with CD changer mounted in the trunk). I've read a number of similar posts regarding this, and I have experienced it myself. I've also discovered that using it in colder weather can cause "ERR" to show up in the display more frequently. I tried cleaning the laser head with a CD cleaning disc and it seemed to make some difference, but I still get errors from time to time, especially when playing home recorded CDs. But to be honest, I don't use the CD changer all that much these days since I more often than not listen to my MP3 player through the car's stereo system instead.
  13. Hi there, I found your thread about connecting Ipod to your stereo, I am trying to do the same, have you done it if so can you tell me how? ill appreciate greatly What I did was buy a bluetooth enabled FM transmitter - Motorola makes an excellent one: http://direct.motorola.com/hellomoto/t505/ (it can also be used as a hands-free cell phone speaker) This allowed me to wirelessly connect my MP3 player to my stock stereo system. My MP3 player is a Samsung P2 which has bluetooth capability built in, but you can buy an inexpensive bluetooth adapter for most iPods these days. Anyways, this method sounds as good as being directly wired to the car stereo, but without the need to pull the headunit out to make modifications. And there are no unsightly wires at all. My MP3 player stays in my shirt or coat pocket, and the motorola T505 FM transmitter clips to the sun visor. It has an internal/rechargeable battery pack. One charge usually lasts a week, at least.
  14. You are probably looking at the wrong end of the bottom rad hose. The thermostat is at the other end of the bottom hose, where it connects to the water pump. You'll need to remove the front passenger side wheel to get access to it. I may be wrong on this, but I think the thermostat location was moved to the top of the engine starting with the 94 aluminum block engine. On the iron block engines (93 and earlier), the thermostat was located at the lower left side of the engine. This location did require the wheel removal to get to it. You could be right.
  15. What sort of condition is the woodgrain bezel around the gearshift and what price would you want for it ? Could you take a pic or two and post them up? Thanks
