    Velcro alternatives for 3rd Row Seat Straps?

    Cam buckles are a great idea! I was thinking of putting some sort of spring-loaded clamp mid-strap, like what you might use to hold a potato chip bag closed, but I thought it would look cheesy. Cam buckles would look good. Do you have a link for a suggested make/model of buckle that works...

    Velcro alternatives for 3rd Row Seat Straps?

    The Velcro on on of my 3rd row seat straps is worn out and not holding anymore. Obviously, I can use a stitch-ripper to remove it, and a sewing machine to sew new Velcro in place. However, it will eventually wear out again. I've seen people on here talking about using snaps on the strap...

    Clear plastic cover-slip on LX470 HVAC control LCD peeling up slightly?

    In my LX470, the LCD screen for the HVAC has a thin, clear piece of plastic over it with a thin black border around the edge. It is peeling up on the left and right side, probably from age and heat warping. If I press it in with my fingers, it stays in place for a while, but slowly pops back...

    Missing Araco sticker on 2001 LX470?

    Picked it up from inspection today (which it mostly passed) and bought it. The Araco sticker is there under the hood, passenger side, just like in MJK's picture. I'm a very happy fellow.

    Missing Araco sticker on 2001 LX470?

    Well, I haven't gone back to take another look yet. I did look for the sticker, and didn't see it last time I saw the vehicle.

    Missing Araco sticker on 2001 LX470?

    Thanks for the pic. Wow, that's pretty obvious. Can't believe I missed seeing that when I looked under the hood.

    Missing Araco sticker on 2001 LX470?

    Thanks, folks! I'll have to look under the hood. Pre-buy inspection on Thursday. Fingers crossed. MJK, would love to see a photo of where it is under the hood so that I can compare.

    Missing Araco sticker on 2001 LX470?

    Yes, I'm starting to think that the decoding is a bit off for the factory number. For example, most MY2000 LX470s, which have the Araco sticker, are showing "0" as the factory number. See this list here: https://www.carfax.com/Used-Lexus-LX-470_t802 I drove these two...

    Missing Araco sticker on 2001 LX470?

    Here's the VIN: JTJHT00W513509061 11th digit is a 3.... I did check the VIN plaques on all the doors, and they were the same. But the again, I've never looked at a 2001 until this one, so maybe the sticker moved inside the hood. I didn't look in the hood for the sticker, because I had seen...

    Missing Araco sticker on 2001 LX470?

    I've looked at several LX470s from that era (1999 and 2000), and they all have had a beautiful Araco sticker on the inside of the passenger-side front door. I've never been able to find a sticker under the hood, on the rear gate, or other doors. It always seems to be on the passenger-side...

    SOLD  WTB: Sacramento/BayArea 2000-2002 LX470

    Been poking around on Craigslist and such, with only marginal luck. There are enough flippers and scammers to go around. I like 2000-2002 because they have ATRAC, but still have the glass headlights. Would consider 1999 if it has the OEM locking rear diff (which is pretty rare). Looking for...

    When did the Lexus LX470 switch to plastic headlights?

    Whoa! That's pretty sweet to hear about being able to stick glass back in the 03. Thanks!

    When did the Lexus LX470 switch to plastic headlights?

    This stuff is fascinating! Thanks for all the details. If anyone has a reference about them being outlawed, I'd love to read it. The yellowing doesn't happen anymore, sure, but the frosting still does. People talk about this happening from sitting in the sun, but I think it's more likely...

    When did the Lexus LX470 switch to plastic headlights?

    I've read elsewhere that the LC and LX switched to plastic in different years, with the LX switching first, and the LC keeping glass longer. Beg: the OEM plastic that you put in your 00 LX, was that the same plastic part meant to go in the 2003-2007? They are the same shape and size? So if...
