  1. You can do a quick and easy check to see if your wind noise is caused by the the black plastic triangle in front of your side view mirror. Just seal the black triangle by putting masking tape around all 3 sides and take it for a highway drive and see if that makes any difference. It made no difference in my car, so that wasn't the cause of the problem. Most 2008 LS460/LS460L were factory-equipped with laminated (Lamisafe) front side glass. All 2007 LS460s were made with tempered glass only. Part of the wind noise fix for the 2007 LS460 includes the addition of laminated (Lamisafe) glass to
  2. There is probably an easy, inexpensive solution to your problem. Look here: http://www.clublexus.com/forums/ls460-ls46...cussion-28.html thanks for your reply. two questions.how do you remove the plastic covering without damaging it? and would the dealer perform this fix?
  3. i was one of the first to receive the wind noise fix almost one and a half years ago. i know i didnt purchase the car with this extreme wind noise anomaly, it suddenly developed after one month post purchase. well guess what, it developed again.it is quite humiliating when your female passengers try to put the windows up thinking they are opened a little.in 2007, i had a difficult time with corporate lexus re. my dissatisfaction, so im worried now 2 years later,that there isnt any recourse. has anyone experienced wind noise again after the fix, and now what can be done to rectify this problem
  4. thanks for your interesting responses. last year i had the wind noise repair which included the rubber molding replacement this could be interfering with the tract, however it is quite sporadic, rare and why after one year of daily use?
  5. my driver side window episodicaly malfunctions when i attempt to close the window. when it goes up to the top, the window spontaneously returns down on its own, stopping at different height levels. this is an infrequent occurrance. im sure just an adjustment but curious if anyone else is experiencing this, and if anyone comprehends the etiology of this problem? thanks
  6. Hello lklev! I am a new member and I've just started looking through this site, as I have a number of complaints about my '07 LS460L. Your posting caught my eye as this is a problem I've experienced as well, albeit intermittently. Of course, when the dealer tests the car, they say that they can't replicate the problem. I was wondering if you had any other information about the fix? Thanks Rob rob, the problem was addressed in the 2007 service bulletin? it was a transmision computor adjustment.
  7. i had the same problem with my gs430. the stain is embedded between the layers of clearcoat, therefore qite difficult to remove. i tried everything including professional opinions.i proved that it was not an acid induced stain since the integrity of the finish was intact. i took the car to the dealer. photos were sent to lexus rep. however it wwas taking too long to hear a response. i eventually got 07 ls460. so i agree that this is a defect in the wheel finish. good luck.
  8. I HAVE WAITED THREE MONTHS FOR THE CURE! MY DEALER EXPERIMENTED WITH ANOTHER VEHICLE. THEY SPENT SEVEN HOURS CHANGING OUT THE DRIVER AND PASSENGER WINDOW TO THE DOUBLE PAIN THICKNESS OF THE LONG VERSION, CHANGED THE MOLDING AROUND THE GLASS, AND DID SOMETHING TO THE SIDE MIRRORS.HOWEVER, TO NO AVAIL. IT DID NOT WORK. NOT SURE WHAT RECOURSE I HAVE.THE WIND NOISE IS EXCESSIVE AND NOT TOLERABLE. ANY IDEAS?
  9. I ALSO COMMENTED ON THIS PROBLEM.. I TITLED IT DELAYED BRAKE CALLIBER RELEASE, ALTHOUGH IT DOESNT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE BRAKES. I WAS TOLD THE PROBLEM LIES IN THE TRANSMISSION SETTING.NOT SURE IF ITS FOR FUEL ECONOMY OR SAFETY.SORRY I FORGOT THE EXPLANATION. LEXUS IS AWARE OF THE PROBLEM AND A COMPUTOR FIX IS PENDING IN AUGUST... IT DRIVES ME CRAZY!!!
  10. i spoke with the chief service manager today. they are going to repair three items to amend the wind noise. first- change the driver and passenger glass. second- change the belt molding around the window. third-- replace some screws inside the mirrors. apparently the head of the screws are too small to obscure the hole.. im waiting for the parts to become available.
  11. i wanted to comment on a second problem i have noticed with my ls 460. there appears to be a delay in the release of the brake callipers when transferring from the brake to accellerate with the gas pedal. its as if you can feel the brake calliper releasing. i was told that lexus is aware of this problem and that they are working on a computor adjustment program soon.
  12. this is a follow up on my wind noise problem of which the forum topic i initiated.. i went to my dealership last week. they confirmed that i am expierincing excessive wind noise and that they are aware of this problem with other ls 460s. they dicsounted the theory re the driver mirror drainge holes. theysaid they will experiment by replacing the front driver and passenger side glass with a thicker glass. supposedly equivilant to the long wheel base glass. i didnt know that the long wheelbase has a different spec glass. again this is an experiment and they cant confirm success. the parts are
  13. PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT THE DEALER THOUGHT THE ORIGIN OF THE PROBLEM IS?
  14. is anyone experiencing noticeable wind noise via the drivers front window at speeds above 40 mph? could this be resolved?
  15. i have the same noise i think. but i went to a non-lexus mechanic for diagnosis. he told me it's the pads shifting in the calipers and the retaining clip is making the noise as the car tries to rock between the shift from park/reverse. i try to live with the noise, but sometimes in enclosed spaces like underground carparks it's startlingly loud. I share your explanation for the cause, as per the lexus mechanic,, however to claim this is normal? Thanks for the suggestions, I'll try going back to the dealer.
