    Seat belt retractor

    My driver's seat belt is very slow to retract. Does anyone know if this can be adjusted or would I need to purchase a new retractor? Also, how do I know if I have the "PRECRASH SYSTEM" or not if I do need to replace?

    O2 sensors

    Yeah man... I just tried some o2 sensors I had sitting around for an old Civic I never got around to replacing. ;) I bought the downstream o2 sensors from RockAuto along with a few other parts I replaced last weekend: One of the guys on this forum who was a former Toyota service tech (can't...

    O2 sensors

    I ordered the part using the Denso website: Find My Part I've driven 50 miles on the new downstream sensors with no issues so far. I'm going to move on to the upstream ones now with fingers crossed.

    O2 sensors

    I just replaced my downstream O2 sensors and was surprised how different the new sensors looked that the OEM ones. I looked up the parts on the Denso website and they were the manufacturer of the OEM too. Anyone else notice this? Was there a design change or a new part number that superseeds...

    Climate control off after restart

    Is there a way to set climate control to automatically go to whatever mode it was in last after restarting the vehicle? The last several vehicles I have had did this so it feels strange that I have to set the climate control each time I start the LC.

    120k Starter, Radiator, Waterpump parts

    I ordered the 2 downstream oxygen sensors from Rock Auto... but got a better price on the upstream o2 sensors (same part for both left and right) from Amazon. Unfortunately the upstream sensors are 100+ each. I don't have the LC with me right now, so I'll upload a pic of the radiator later.

    New 200 Series Owner; Need PM recommendations

    Also, from what I've read on here, if your 200 is from the US it doesn't really have the traditional fuel filter that would be replaced as part of maintenance. Others outside the US do have the traditional fuel filter mounted on the frame... or so the experts on here have said.

    New 200 Series Owner; Need PM recommendations

    I've owned my 2010 with 162k for a few weeks and have been working my way through a very similar list. So far I've done spark plugs, valve cover gasket, radiator, thermostat, fan clutch, water pump, tensioner, idler pulley, belt, hoses, coolant flush, throttle body cleaning, air and cabin...

    2008-2010 Radiator Failure and Public Service Announcement

    I just posted this on another thread... but probably more pertinent here. So sorry for the double post: I just replaced my radiator, upper and lower hoses, water pump, thermostat, fan clutch, serpentine belt, tensioner, pulley, and flushed my coolant this past weekend. My 2010 has 162k on it...

    120k Starter, Radiator, Waterpump parts

    I just replaced my radiator, upper and lower hoses, water pump, thermostat, fan clutch, serpentine belt, tensioner, pulley, and flushed my coolant this past weekend. My 2010 has 162k on it and the radiator was leaking. Everything else I replaced actually looked like they were still in really...

    Lc200 o2 sensor replacement - anybody have instructions?

    2008-2010 Radiator Failure and Public Service Announcement

    Is this done as a preventative thing? Are these known to completely fail or is it a degradation in performance or noise? Am I going to save time by doing this now in conjunction with the rest of the things I am doing?

    2008-2010 Radiator Failure and Public Service Announcement

    2008-2010 Radiator Failure and Public Service Announcement

    I'm planning on replacing the water pump, thermostat, hoses, belt, tensioner, and pulley at the same time. I read that you should replace the fan clutch whenever you replace the water pump. Did anyone do this when replacing all the other things? I didn't see it mentioned in this thread.

    2008-2010 Radiator Failure and Public Service Announcement

    I have 161k on mine and have sprung a leak... although in a different location from most. Mine is leaking from a tiny crack on the driver's side edge where a bolt secures the top plastic to the side plastic. Could be that the bolt had been overtightened at some point.... don't really know...

    Oil in spark plug wells

    Any opinions on whether I should get an aftermarket vs OEM gaskets for this? The cost isn't huge (@ $95 OEM vs $35 Aftermarket) but if there isn't a difference, aftermarket is easier to get my hands on.

    Oil in spark plug wells

    So I recently picked up a 2010 lc from out of town. I had a Toyota dealer do a pre purchase inspection and they recommend replacing the spark plugs. After driving it for a few days and noticing the MPG averaging 13ish I decided to try and tackle changing the spark plugs myself. Unfotunately I...
