  1. Rockauto has the sensors. It is fairly easy to DIY because it is plug and play.
  2. The 2006 is not compatable with the 2003. You will need a Gen 2/3 Disc. Not sure which version I have for the one I took out but you are welcome to it since I have upgraded my 2003. It is just collecting dust and I really dont know what to do with it. Ping me back with your address and I will send it if you would like.
  3. The key word here is OFFSET. I am running 20x8.5 F (22 Off) and 20x10.5 R (25 Off). With 245 F and 255 R. with no rubbing issues. Stock is 38 Offset so it will all depend on the offset of the rim and size of the tire.
  4. Did you use a spring compressor and remove the strut mount off the arm? That is all I needed when I did mine a few weeks ago.
  5. Courtesy lights are 194, BA9s for the map lights and 31mm for the main. You can find it all on EBAY if you use the search with the numbers provided.
  6. Not sure if all the cars were fitted with this but if you remove your right cover in the trunk you may find the wiring for the 3rd brake light. If not then you will have to go directly from the third brake light housing to make your connections. The good news is that the housing can be removed without taking the whole shelf off. The bad is that you will have to route your wires to it. It will be easier if you remove the covers from your trunk.
  7. Both sensors are located about a foot of each other. Remove your air intake box and hose you will have access to both. Both will be visible once the intake box and hoses are removed. First one located near the exhaust manifold and the other just under your Cap and rotor. Your better off replacing both at the same time but really up to you. Sorry if it sounds redundant but I dont have pictures so I want to make sure you got the jest of what needs to come off.
  8. Almost sounds like when I had to change my head gasket. Have you checked your coolant for any tell tale signs of oil? When it came close to failure, there always seemed to be a bubble trapped in the Coolant lines and I had to run it with the cap off til it released. Dont know why the toyota dealership looked at you funny, it is a NA supra and all share the same symptoms.
  9. There should be like 9 bolts that hold your door in place. One located at the tweeter (Remove the cover) 3 underneath, two at the hand rest, two in the front, and one at the actual door handle itself. It is only a plastic cover that you need to pry out. A skinny screwdriver should do the trick.
  10. Had the same thing happen but not sure if that was the code that I had. It had something to do with the gas cap not being tight or a sensor in the gas tank.
  11. The stock wiring for a dvd player is under the shift panel. It will be on the top right and if not mistaken, will be a white plug. You can tap all your wires into that.

  13. Cabin filter is located under the passenger dash. Just get under there and look up to see the panel. Two screws is all it is. When you pull it out, you will know how bad your filter is. I have heard of some vehicles not even having one and being very musky. Just clean it out when you install your filter and you should be fine
  14. I also have an 04 GX - I bought a 9" clarion and had it installed by a local shop. It has a FM mod so you have to tune your radio to a certain frequency to get the sound from the speaker system. The clarion comes with two sets of wireless headphones which are really good. The picture is one of the best in business. My advice would be to go with a good name brand. Saving a few buck on this is not worth it. My installation cost about $150 and the tech did an excellent job he got the power wired straight from the battery with additional fuses etc. Really clean job and would recommend him if you a
  15. Just another option if you can not find a load resistor is to use the front running lights as a turn signal. All you need to do is splice into the front signal wire to the running light and cap off the positive from the running light. I am referring to the front side amber lights.
  16. Had the "whistling" happen to me as well, it turned out to be the harmonic balancer. The rubber around the main crank deteriorated and during startup would whistle until the rubber surround heated up. I would check to see if the main crank is moving once the car is on just to be safe.
  17. Steps are right but make sure that your garage door does not have a rolling code. If it does, you will have to press the reset button on the garage door itself. Press the reset first then do the procedures you stated above. Good luck
  18. BA9S is the part number you reference if you go to autozone or any other auto parts store. Good luck
  19. If it does not have a Nakamichi system, SC models prior to 95, you can use a toyota wiring adapter for the connections. You will have two harnesses one is for the interface with the AC lcd and the other is for the power. You will need to hook up the remote lead to the stock amp if you want it to work. You can easily fit a double din in there but you will have a gap of about an inch to inch 1/2. Sounds complicated but you will know what I am talking about when you are actually installing. Your volume button will not work and it will no longer show on the LCD. Good luck
  20. If you are already changing the timing, you might as well do it. Just make sure that you inform the shop that you have an "Interference engine" so they know what it entails
  21. Japanese parts is located at the End of Lamb Blvd has all kinds of parts for Lexus and Toyota. You can get all the parts you need from there. Good luck
  22. Timing belt and pump should take you 6 hours max if you are somewhat experienced. One thing you will really need is a Harmonic balancer tool to hold while you crank at the main bolt. When putting everything back together from TDC, do two full rotations on the crank. Check all your lines to see if they have cracked and/or if they are connected. Good luck
  23. Had the same problelm with mine. It is off track or the rivets that hold the track have broken. You should see what I am talking about when you remove your panel and roll up and down your window. Look inside and you should see the mechanism. It needs to be riveted/screwed around the area where the door latch is. Hope this helps but let me know so I can take pictures of what I am talking about
  24. You have to take the rear door panel off. First you have to lift your handle and remove the two prongs that hold the handle. (No Screws) Once that is removed, slip a screwdriver to release the tension. (It is like an expandable prong) The only screw is located under the cover for the top strap of the Lexus first aid kit is. Once that is removed, carefully find a place to pull the panel and you should start hearing snap after snap as you pull it away from the door. Tricky part is near the rear window. It snaps towards the window wiper. Once you get started it will all make sense. The reverse bu
