I just pulled off my original right side cowl and the part is marked 55781-60130, so it looks like sunny Southern California lexus got the cold area spec from the start. I'm original owner on this 2006 LX, and it came from Japan to the Long Beach port before being sold in San Diego.
I went to...
The Toyota Factor Service Manual shows the front bearings themselves as non-reusable parts, but the service schedule shows bearing repacks at 30K service intervals. Can anyone explain this discrepancy?
While I'm fixing the mounting brackets on my projector assembly, I'd love to replace the bezel and shutter as they've faded to a very different color from the rest of the still like-new dash. The Lexus parts shows as unavailable, but the Toyota parts can still be found. Does anyone know if...
One more here...
My 2006 LX has had ALL of the projector cowling brackets break so I'm going in to see what I can MacGyver. I'd imagine that many of the functional problems are because these things are all going out.
Based on access info above, thanks very much, I'm going in with some JB...
I've got a 2006 LX and I wanted to replace the cowl vents, but the Lexus part appears to be unavailable.
Does anyone know if there are differences between the LX part and the LC part?
LC parts are still available, listed here...
I want to replace the rear bumper step pad on my 2006, but I can't find a separate part number and the full bumper cover is expensive and not primed or painted.
Does anyone know if there's a part number for this, indicated in red in the image? It looks like all other Toyota/Lexus SUVs have...
The folding mechanism on my driver's side mirror has failed and needs replacement. I'm hoping to stay OEM.
It seems like they may all be gone, but some sites are showing the part in stock.
Does anyone know parts well enough to say if this will fit my 94 Dark Emerald Pearl LC?
My 94's overheating problem is fixed. Here's a summary for the next guy:
I had a cracked radiator, so I replaced the radiator, water pump, thermostat, hoses, etc.
After refilling I would overheat right after the truck warmed
Heater was hot
Top hose was hot
Bottom hose was cool
Engine got hot...
I had the same thought and just checked my hoses.
Heater is getting hot and staying hot. I believe that's confirmation that the water pump is creating pressure.
Top hose and top of radiator is getting hot.
Bottom hose isn't getting hot.
I've burped quite a few times now and I'm no longer...
Jiggle valve is at 12.
I just burped and I'm still overheating. I'm shutting down before I get to red.
I'm having a panic moment. I removed two covers for the new radiator ATF connections, but didn't see anything to remove for the coolant. Any chance there are plugs in the OEM radiator...
I just replaced the radiator, water pump, thermostat, and all rubber in my 94 cooling system, and now I'm overheating after about 15 minutes of driving.
I'm hoping, in order:
1) Air in the system, working this now
2) Bad thermostat not opening
3) What else?
I've got lots of heat coming...
I think I'll start with the calipers, as your 50% argument is indisputable, they are indeed the original calipers, the symptoms span OEM pads and "upgrade" pads, and the brake boost test indicates the booster "should" be working.
I've done the brake booster test, and the pedal does fall slightly when the engine is started. That's supposed to indicate a successful test, but I agree it's a likely root cause. Any other suggestions for proving it out?
I've had slowly deteriorating brake performance for quite a while. I'm hoping for some guidance before I start replacing parts.
The vehicle is a 94 LC with a 2" lift and 33" tires. The points that matter, I believe:
1) The brakes are not spongy. They're firm.
2) You have to use a lot of...
