  1. Hi Owen,

    I think I have read as many posts as I could find on how to remove and replace the door actuator on my 1995 SC300.  I have yet to find a step by step guide to follow.  I know you have had to do this a few times and actually made a condensed set of instructions.  Do you have any further advice on how I can make this job easier?  Do you have a detailed step by step guide on how to fix this common problem?  I did it several years ago and can only remember it was the hardest thing I had ever done.  I have seen a few tips that I think will make it easier but would highly value any additional tips you could provide.  

    Thank you!

  2. Felt a horrible vibration at the rear end of my sc300 while driving recently, had it checked out and turns out the gears in the diff has gone bad. So i purchased a used diff same size and everything however i observed 3s inscriped on it while 3v is inscriped on the one that went bad. What does these inscription mean?

  4. The SC400 came with power automated telescoping/tilting steering wheel, and the third brake light was mounted inside the spoiler as opposed to on the rear dash behind the windshield in the SC300. The SC400 has larger disc brakes (11.7-inch front & 12.1-inch rear) compared to the SC300 (10.8-inch front & 11.4-inch rear). The SC300 had an optional but very rare velour (gray or tan) interior and optional but very rare hard top (no moonroof). (courtesy of Intellexual.net)
  5. I think it's a coinsidence that your manifold and converter are glowing after an engine cleaning. It would appear that your converter is bad. Any competent shop should be able to verify if this is the case. Check to see if any fuses are blown also.
  6. Found this on another Lexus site: Ok here it goes. First step: Remove the door Panel This is possibly the hardest part, and may require a helper to hold the panel so you dont damage the speaker or pull any cables out of their connectors. You need to first unscrew the panel from the metal part via a couple of screws. Most of them are concealed under plastic panels to preserve aesthetics. 1 is under a panel behind the door pull. Pry it off carefully with a flathead screwdriver. The hinge point is towards the front of the car so pry near the lock. 2 more are located behind a panel at the edge
  7. Have you done the BFI yet? Maybe your new tires/wheels are heavier or different diameter. Tune-up lately?
  8. I tried putting Supra TT brakes on the front with the 5 spokes and the rims didn't clear the rotors. The TT brakes did fit the back. I have since sold the rotors and calipers.
  9. I have IS300 wheels on my 95. I don't know the weight but they're lighter than the stock 16"s
  10. I got the actuator off Ebay. I posted the part numbers for the clips awhile ago. You could also try a salvage yard.
