How do you remove the radio from a 1992 Lexus ES300?

remove the plastic piece just above cup holder. It just snaps into place and can be pulled out by hand. This exposes two screws that hold bottom of radio assembly. In side the a/c vent just above the a/c control panal there are two small metal snaps. Yoy can use a screwdriver to push them out of the way to expose the top two screws that hold the radio assembly. It took a bit of prying but I removed the a/c vent which made removal and reinstallation easy.

Good Luck

What are the steps to changing the sparkplugs on a Lexus SC 300?

Not to discourage you but I recently changed my wires twice in the last year. If you still have the factory wires they should pull right off, I have the SC400 which should be similar. You have to remove the spark plug wire covers this may require disconnecting some vacumn hoses so remember to mark both ends to ease in the replacement. You will have to remove the peice of plastic that covers the distibutor. I recommend replacing on spark plug at a time so the the wire don't get out of order. When you first go to pull off a plug wire rotate it clockwise about a 1/4 of a turn then pull it off. This help break the seal. The new plugs are gapped at the factory so unless you see damage to the protective cardboard you should be ok. The recommended installation is to start them without the ratchet run them all the way in by hand to prevent cross threading. After they seat turn them 1/2 turn by ratchet. Good luck. If you need to replace the wire read the following.I had replaced my wires with the Oreilly store brand $66 with life time warranty, they are next to impossible to remove, I had to chisel them off! Go ahead and spend an extra $30 and get the BorgWarner wires for $90 you will be glad you did.

Lexus headlight leveling system warning light?

I have a 2001 RX300 with high intesity discharge headlights. My headlight leveling warning light comes on occasionally also. The system responds to lights coming the other direction and height of the ground in front of you. If there is a street light or the road goes up or down a hill, the system may get confused. If you have an older model like mine, dont worry about it. If your car is newer you may want to take it to the dealer.

How do you replace the antenna mast on a 1994 Lincoln?

A new mast from the dealer is about $50.00. You would remove the nuts and grommet at the base of the mast. Then press the up switch, or turn the radio on to get the nylon gear to despool itself from the car- it is best to have two people do this- so one knows which direction the gear teeth face. Start the new nylon gear into the shaft and then turn the radio off, or depress the down button to get the antenna to retract into the car. It may take a few tries to get it- just remember which way the gear teeth are facing before you remove the old one. Replace the hardware, and snug it down.

What does it mean if your 1994 SC400 starts beeping when you turn it off?

On the Lexus it is designed to give you so many seconds to roll up the electric window or close the moonroof even with the key turned off, then it starts beeping at you to let you know that this feature will soon deactivate. It has to do with arming the alarm, so there is nothing wrong with you car.

Where are fuses located on the 92 Lexus SC300?

There is one black plastic fuse box located under the hood which mainly houses the relays. As you open the hood, it is on the driver's side about 2/3rds of the way down the engine compartment located far right against the fender. Non-descript 9"x5" approx. with two plastic head screws you can loosen by screwdriver or even with a quarter to lift lid and access various fuses and relays. Legend for fuse / relay applications should be imprinted on the underside of the lid; also built into the lid is a fuse holder, you may have some spares there if you're lucky. The other is under the dash on the driver side where your left foot goes. There is a panel that kind of curves downward you need to remove to expose fuse panel.

Can 20 inch rims fit on a 2007 SC430?

Recommended tire size is a 225/35/20.

Sure they'll fit, but do you really want to do that? It's one thing to put 20 - 26 inch wheels on a truck or SUV, but a sports car? Just bear in mind that a bigger diameter in the wheel well may look cool, but it's going to take longer for your tire to make a full revolution, and therefore it WILL affect the speed readout on your gauges. You're odometer will read a little bit slower than your actually going. That's an easy way to get a speeding ticket (trust me), while thinking that you weren't flying by the state patrol officer sitting on the side of the highway.

How do you change a tail light on a 1992 Lexus SC300?

I have the 95 model of the sc300 so I don't know if it's exactly the same or not...I can only imagine though, that it is very close. There are three screw studs behind the covering in the trunk. On the passenger side tail light I found it also helps to un-bolt the trunk lock. It takes a 10 mm wrench or socket for both the nuts on the studs and the bolt for the trunk lock. There is one stud just under the lock on the passenger side tail light and then the other two are located at the far end of the tail light just above where the disc changer eject button is. I also found that if you push on the single stud, while pulling on the end of the light assembly with the two studs it helps to get the entire assembly out. After that it's a matter of finding the light that is out by twisting, counter clockwise, to unlock each light assembly from their individual hole.

What do you have to do to your AC if it is blowing cold air?

it should be blowing cold air(wish mine did)but really though you might try to adjust the warm air control i think we are on the same page i found out if you turn your control knob all the way counter clock wise to the coldest postition it closes the vent from the outside, the recyle should kick on and not allow outside air to come in even if the controler is turned off

Is it possible to convert a Lexus SC300 to a manual transmission?

Sure it is possible. It will also be very expensive and require lots of modifications. It is much easier to go from manual to A/T. I would advice against it. Trade cars if you want a manual.

It's possible, but if you really want to do it, I would suggest just getting the 2JZG(T)E motor. It'll cost you about $10k in parts and labor, but it's well worth it. A LOT of potential, 330 HP off the top.

yes it is possible but you will loose your traction control and it will be costly if your going with all new parts like center console, clutch pedal, and transmission, pressure plate, and clutch. I'm not sure if the drive shaft would be shorter or longer or even needs to be change though, but if i was having to replace my auto trans cause of problems then i would go with a manual at that time but i don't think its worth the money for just pleasure

is it possible to bolt up another Toyota tranny? with an adapter plate? like a supra trans? or another w58 that can bolt up? and what about the sc400? what manual will bolt up to those motors?

Swapping an sc300 to a manual w58 transmission is not nearly as difficult or expensive as previously listed. All the parts needed to do the swap can be had for under $1,000 if you look in the right places, such as craigslist and clublexus. As far as installing it, if your not mechanicly inclined, you will need a shop to do it for you, which will jack up the price.

Bro just get a 5speed OEM Lexus they made those just hard to find found a couple for just about $6,000
