  1. Take a look at this reply by Lenore: Manually Closing A Sunroof - 99 - 03 Lexus RX300 - Lexus Owners Club of North America Have you tried it?
  2. That's a great idea! If they are made of polyethylene or polypropylene, you can pour some acetone or cleaning alcohol in one if doing touchup cleaning. I use small cups to clean out glass eye droppers that I use to add dyes to my castings. These type of plastics are very chemical resistant so they can be helpful in may ways.
  3. My gut feeling is that not many Lexus owners will do this, themselves but if this post gets enough "hits" I'll pin it so that it can be easily found. Thanks, Chris for the link and writeup. Dave
  4. I think that buying a different type of battery is not really fixing the problem. I buy the Costco battery every 5 years or so and have not had any excessive drain issues. If you are a do-it-yourselfer, take a look at this web page by Popular Mechanics: Dead Car Battery- How to Test a Car Battery ( If you are not, you should consider taking your vehicle to an Auto Electric shop, as I mentioned above. Good luck!
  5. My wife has a Samsung S10 and it works perfectly with our Lexus.
  6. Mike have you thought about having the dealership investigate this?
  7. I believe you have to run each window down and up using the control at each window, not from the driver's seat. The moon roof may require the same. It's been a while since I changed the battery but you do need to relearn the windows.
  8. Did you take it in to the dealership to have them check it out? Your vehicle should be able to sit for 2 weeks. I'm hoping they didn't tell you otherwise. There could be a light that is not turning off if it is not LED.
  9. It may be obvious if you've had this vehicle for awhile but the fob's remote button will not work unless you first unlock the doors with the door button. There are also certain conditions in order for the interior button to open the hatch, also.
  10. The IS 500's performance and horsepower is about the same as that of the LC500, so no, Lexus is not "pulling a Mercedes or BMW" by cranking up the horsepower to 600+. Reliability is far more important than bragging rights. Side fact: There will be only 500 of the IC 500s produced.
  11. The only other thing I could find was someone who had to replace the fuel door actuator motor because it wouldn't pull the pin back all the way.
  12. The RX looks good. I would say that this is a fairly equal swap. It's hard to say for certain, as the condition and complete maintenance history of each is important when determining the market value. But if both were well maintained, you did get a good deal.
  13. 1. How often and for how many miles do you drive the vehicle? 2. How old is the battery? 3. Are both battery terminal clamps tight? (You should not be able to rotate either clamp.)
  14. I know this is a different model but perhaps the solution with work with your vehicle with the correct part number.
  15. "...if the manufacturer has made any updates to the transmission, say using a new friction material, your remanufactured transmission will also be updated. Many remanufactured transmissions are covered by extensive warranties. If something does fail in the future, thereโ€™s a good chance that itโ€™ll be covered. This way, you can enjoy peace of mind while driving your Lexus RX 300." I have known this for many years. The thing to remember is that even older transmissions are extremely complicated. There is far less that can go wrong if a factory remanufactured transmission is swapped in.
  16. I'd recommend that you stop by the parts department at your nearest dealership and ask for a copy of the exploded view of this assembly. That should make it easy to access what is missing or broken.
  17. It most likely depends upon the road surface conditions. States that have cold winters tend to have more pot holes unless the specific city is very responsive about patching those pot holes. I've been driving on 40 and 45 series tires for 20 years and have never had a blowout.
  18. Have you reviewed these posts? Cup Holder Door Won't Open Fully - 04 - 09 Lexus RX330 / RX350 / RX400h - Lexus Owners Club of North America
  19. Are the battery posts' connections tight? Have you checked for any loose ground connections?
  20. I take our cars to Discount Tire, sit back, have a cup of coffee and relax while the rotation is done for free. I have rotated tires, over the years but not anymore. If you're not getting underneath the car, you don't need the jack stands if the vehicle is on level ground. By the way, the video opened perfectly for me. I have Windows 10 and Edge (the fastest browser of the bunch).
  21. Mike, I certainly agree with that sticker on your cart. ๐Ÿ‘
  22. Throughout the years I have had to adjust headlights after lowering my car at the time. My verification process was to take the car out for a drive to judge the changes. If opposing direction car drivers flashed their high beams, I knew I had over-adjusted upward. ๐Ÿ˜„
