  1. I found a used one from e-bay "Germany" of all places. I haven't installed it yet but hopefully all goes well when I do. If not I'll let you know. Thanks for the reply!

  4. I can get you a factory replacement LCD for your Pioneer headunit if you want to go that route. dcfish, Same problem here. Can you send me the information for the replacements LCD? Thanks. What year and model ? PM or EM me WOW!....lots of people seem to have this LCD problem. The display on my 2001 GS300 Pioneer unit just has dimmed on one side so I assume that one of my backlights are out. I haven’t seen anything in this form about just replacing the backlights. Is this possible?.....has anyone done it? DCfish, can you please e-mail me the LCD replacement info in case I have to
  5. Well first the good news….yesterday I played at the same golf course I played at about a month ago when I lost my spare. I checked in the pro shop and VOILA! someone had found my key and turned it in, so now I have a spare. Txateer, I was about to order from sparekeys.com but the price on the web site said $109.95! How did you get one for $19.95? For the record I checked www.sewellpartsonline.com and they wanted $185 plus $65 to ship to Canada! (I think it weighs about 5 ounces)
  6. I recently lost the spare key for my 2001 GS300 and the "stealership" wants $360 PLUS programming fee for a replacement. I have searched this forum for the best place to buy a new one but all the info appears dated. Has anyone ordered a replacement recently? I still have a master so I would like one that is cut and I could program myself. Any leads on a good place online to buy would be greatly appreciated!
  7. That repair cannot be done “properly” for $250. Spend the money and get it done right and you’ll be happier in the long run. I had rear door dent/scratch and rear quarter panel “ding” repaired on my 2001 GS300 a year or so ago. Most independent body shops quoted me from 1000-1200 bucks. I got the name of a guy with a professional home shop who said he does work for about 60% of what most body shops charge. I was confident in this guy as he does body work at a local GM dealer during the day. He did a great job and the final cost was $700. I was worried about color matching too but he uses a co
  8. I just changed the oil on my 2001 GS300 and could not find the torque value on the drain plug. I just read somewhere that it is 33 ft/lbs, which seems high to me (I'd hate to strip it). Can anybody confirm the torque setting?
  9. I just had mine changed on my 2001 GS300 at 190K Kms which is about 120K miles and the belt looked fine. I wouldn't worry too much about a few thousand extra miles but as others have said there are no guarantees and the cosequences are HUGE.
  10. I got a quote from an independent Lexus mechanic for around $1000 to replace timing belt, water pump, cam seals, crank seal and idler bearing. Lexus quoted $990 "without" the waterpump. The local Toyota dealership said they would replace the timing belt for $375 and inspect the other parts and only replace if required. Does anybody have an opinion on NOT changing the waterpump and seals if they seem to be fine. Is the waterpump prone to failure? Does anybody have a high mileage GS300 with the original waterpump? My GS300 is a 2001 and has 190K kms (118k miles).
  11. So I guess mine is kind of normal and I have tried the "chin trick" and it does seem to work. My wife has a Sienna and like the 4runner the remote for that has a long range also. Thanks for the responses.
  12. The "key-mounted" remote for my 2001 GS300 has a very limited range. It barely works from inside my front door to the driveway which is only about 30ft away. It does have a new battery so that's not it. Does anybody else have this problem and is there any way to boost the range?
  13. Ill be changing the center caps for sure. I paid $450 for all 4....so it was a cheap pick up. I dont mind the stock GS wheels but mine are chrome which im not a huge fan of. Ill see how they look on the car & if they dont blend well im sure i could sell em. Regards. Those are nice wheels and a great price too. I believe the bolt pattern will be the same but the centre bore for Infiniti is typically larger (66.1 vs 60.1mm) so you may need an adaptor ring. Would I need to purchase this adaptor ring or would any shop I have mount & balance my tires & wheels have them at han

  15. I have a 2001 GS300 with 180,000 kms and I just switched to synthetic. I went with Castrol Syntec 0W30, which is the "German Syntec" so it is fully synthetic. Canadian Tire had on sale here for $6.56 a litre so it wasn't much more than conventional, especially if you change it yourself. The local Toyota dealership charges $90+ tax for a synthetic oil change and they use Mobil 1. I also went with the NAPA Gold filter which is made by WIX and is apparently a quality filter. Six litres of oil (it takes 5.4), $10 for the filter and $2 to dispose of the old oil and I'm done for under 60 bucks. My
  16. excuse my language sir but why the hell would you get a 2nd gen gs300 wheels??? instead get some 20 inch stagg fitment wheels from Ebay $300-$800, and then you be turning some heads..... Not all of us want to "turn heads". I have a 2nd gen and I love the stock rims....classy look and not over-stated or tacky (like you're trying too hard).
  17. You're probably ok with H rated but I would stick with V rated as that is what the car is designed for. I have Toyo Versado LX's on my 01 GS300 and they are great....quietest tire I've ever had and handle as good as the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S's there were on the car before them.....and cheaper too! I can't comment on snow performance though as I use Bridgestone Blizzaks in the winter....also highly recommended.
  18. yes they are hubcentric and yes u need hub rings. get the aluminum ones.... here is a link all bout the g35's....n y wouldnt u upgrade to the 18" or 19" g35's? seems kinda silly to just upgrade from a 16 to a 17....wasnt aware the g35 had a 17 either....thought it was ONLY 18" or 19". im supposed to be aquiring some 19"'s from a good friend of mine for really cheap http://www.clublexus.com/forums/gs-second-...tric-rings.html check the last page of this one.... http://www.clublexus.com/forums/gs-second-...gs-pics-10.html Thanks for the links, lots of good info there. The rims are from
  19. I'm thinking of replacing the stock 16" rims on my 2001 GS300 with some 17's from a G35. Just wondering if it matters that the centre bore on the 17's is 66.1mm and the stock 16's is 60.1mm. Will I need to use a hub ring? Has anyone done this and if so did you have any vibration problems. I believe our rims are "hubcentric" correct?

  21. should ONLY be 4 screws in each just like ne other front seat BUT BE CAREFUL of the srs wires and the heating wires DONT just jerk the seat out after you unscrew them and i would recommend undoing the battery before you do this... y do u need to remove your seats btw? Wellll it actually has to do with those SRS wires. I have a ground problem bringing in my SRS light and want to clean up the wiring under there and see if I can clear the ground before I have to bring it in. The connectors and wiring are very hard to get at since there's not much clearance under the seat. Also wouldn't mind
  22. Does anybody have a "how-to" for front seat removal on an '01 GS300. I did a search and it only turned up info on the back seat removal. Thanks.
  23. A friend of mine has used an independent call T-Lex Auto Service in Markham. I haven't used them but he highly recommends them as competent but cheaper than the dealer. http://www.weblocal.ca/t-lex-auto-service-...markham-on.html
  24. Thanks for the links sakataj. I hear you with regards to airbag systems so I don't think I'll try too much. Once the weather gets a little warmer around here, I'll probably remove the module and check all the connections to see if I can clear the ground.
  25. I have a 2001 GS300 and about three weeks ago my Airbag Warning Light started blinking for no reason and after no maintenance was performed. I read some of the forums and tried the "jiggle the wires" solution with no luck. Yesterday while doing an oil change at Toyota I had the codes read and was surprised to see "several" codes were in. They were: B0112, B0117, B1162 and B1167. All these codes were essentially for circuit grounds. Is it possible that I have this many grounds at once or could it be some kind of ECM fault. I might add that I live in Ontario, Canada and these codes did come in
