Is it possible to convert a Lexus IS 300 transmission to manual?

yes, but no

technically it can be done.. but it would be very expensive.

It's not just replacing the tranny, you'll need a new starter,ignition, differential ... the list goes on.

It's cheaper to trade in your car for a manual.

PS: Why? As automatics go, the is300 has a great one. If your boosting performance you could upgrade your tranny ( or parts) to handle the increase strain. If you just want the control, get used to the paddles (buttons, with some practice they're very useful - try going into a sharp turn at 60, keep your foot on the gas, down shift , and power through)

or

trade in for a stick.

How do you change a battery in Lexus key fob?

For the 2000-GS300 you will need #000 Philips screwdriver, remove the small screw and pry the case open nearest the screw hole. The upper portion of the case has a strong snap like hook that holds it together. Its pretty hefty and seems to be the only way to open it. Inside you will find a module about the size of a quarter that has two more #000 Philips screws securing it. Remove them and under that cover you will find a CR1616 battery. Use a small flat blade screwdriver to lift the free edge of the battery and slide it out away from the retaining tabs.

For a Lexus IS 250 /AWD Key-less Entry Key FOB 2006 and newer:

1. Take out the mechanical key from your fob.

2. Put a flat head screwdriver into the inset space...just inside of the mechanical key slot....and gently turn/pry it. This will pry open the fob.

3. Remove the old battery and replace with a new Panasonic CR1632 battery..positive side facing up.

4. Replace the cover of the fob by first pressing on the bottom then the top (The top is the side where the mechanical key is inserted)

How do you reset the maintenance required indicator after changing oil in Lexus RX 330?

procedure will be in your glove comp. hand book.....

Sorry, but this is correct. In the discussion section I mentioned that the info was not in the owners manual. It is, only problem is, it is very hard to find but it is in the manual. Sorry if I confused you.

page 77 of the 2004 Lexus rx330 handbook...

(you will find the answer you are looking for in resetting your maintenance light.)

with the odometer reading visible, (not trip A or trip B..) turn off engine. While keeping Odo/trip button depressed, turn ignition back on (not starting the engine) You will see dashes (instead of numbers) on your odometer disappearing one at a time. it will be replaced by 0's (zeros).. Release the Odo/trip button and your original mileage will come up....

And your done..... until the next oil change.

Where is the thermostat located on a Lexus?

locate the TOP radiator hose and follow it to the engine block. it will be at the end of that line and have electrical wire going to it. probably 2 bolts to remove and the housing will pull off. Viola, theres ya thermostat.

AnswerIt also depends on which year and model, like 93 GS300 the thermostat is located on the side engine block follow it to the BOTTOM radiator hose. It has only two bolts to remove.

On a 94 ES 300, the thermostat is located at the end of the bottom radiator hose and is mounted to the engine block by three 10mm nuts. I highly recommend getting the thermostat from the dealer. I tried one from Kragen and it didn't fit as tight and was very flimsy compared to the OEM.

How often do you change the oil on Lexus IS250?

You normally change the oil on anycar every 2500-3000 miles. If there were a special condition it would be stated in the manual.

You can easily drive 5,000 miles between changes on modern engines with todays oil and filters. The 3,000 mile oil change is only recommended by people wanting to make money off it. Read your owner's manual and see when they say to change it. Probably around 7,000 miles.

How do i fix a lawnmower that has water in the gas tank?

Drain all of the gasoline from the fuel tank and replace it with fresh stuff. Then replace the spark plug, which will be no good anymore. After repriming the fuel lines, it should work fine. You can verify that you have water in your fuel tank by pouring some into a translucent container and letting it sit for a few minutes. There will be two layers if you have water mixed in with your gasoline. The gas will float to the top and the water will settle to the bottom. To avoid this problem in the future, always fill the gas tank and gas can after each use and keep the gas can off the ground. Inexpensive gas can also be contaminated with water. What usually happens is that warm air enters the fuel can and when the air cools (at night, for instance), the water vapor from the air condenses out in the fuel tank or gas can. This is more of a problem on humid days.

How do you remove the door panel for a Lexus IS 300?

Its a pain, there are two screws. One in the arm rest, and the other under a tab in the door handle. After that is the hard part, use two flat head screw drivers and pry the door handle trim off. Then the easy part, pop off the tweet housing and then pull the pannel off. Dont worry your not gonna break it its just clips. Then unplug the wires and your done.

How do you access the side marker light on a Lexus RX 300 to replace the bulb and do you have to remove the bumper?

It's actually not as difficult as it seems. Look in the fender liner area (where the wheel wheel is) and you will see the screws that hold the liner in place. Once you remove the bottom screws (or be it the screws that hold the edges of the fender liner), you can carefully pull it back a bit to expose the bulb and socket. To remove the socket turn it counter clockwise until you can pull it out. To reinstall the socket turn it clockwise until it locks in place Carefully remove the bulb from the socket and replace with same type. To remove the bulb pull it straight out. Push the new bulb straight in. The bulb is a 194 5w bulb. Note: most of the time the reason the bulbs are burning out in the bumper is due to water getting in behind the lens and not being able to drain. What I have done is use a Dremmel tool to carfully drill a very small hole along the bottom of the lens to allow the water to drain. Another option is if you have clear silicone you can suirt some around the outside of the lens. This will prevent water from getting in. However, if there is already water in the lens you will have to drain the water first. To drain the water use a ratchet wrench and unscrew the nut that holds the lens to the bumper. In severe cases of corroded sockets you might have to replace the socket where the bulb goes into.

How do you replace the license plate bulbs on a 2002 Lexus IS 300?

I did it on an IS 200, 2000. Remove boot lid (trunk lid) lining. Remove 4 8mm nuts that are in a row about 20 inches long behind the lights. Two of them hold the key lock in place. There are two white plastic locators in behind the metal protecting the lights.Use a screwdriver to pop them as you pull plastic trim surrounding the lights and lock from the other side.

The left side light can be popped out with a screwdriver from the left hand side. Rotate bulb holder anti clockwise. Its a 5w capless bulb.

How do you take out car stereo from a Lexus IS 300?

Yes I just did yesterday. Start by pulling out the panel that has the seat heat switches...it just pulls out toward you. That reveils to bolts that must be romoved. Than at the top of the dash there is a tray that many people put change and sunglasses in. This tray has a felt insert that you pry up with a screw driver. It just snaps in. This allows you to remove two screws. Once this screws are out the tray just pulls out. This allows you to remove the heater/air vents. They also just pull out. With them removed you can now remove the two top bolts that hold the stereo/air control panels. They are bolted together and come out as a unit. Remove all electrical cannon plugs and separate the units by removing the bolts on the side of the stereo unit.
