SOURCE: How to Replace the AC filter on my Lexus 01 LX 470

Perform steps 1-3 first to inspect whether you have the access doors or not before ordering filters!!!

Did this little project this evening. Figured I'd write it up.

5 Easy steps:

1. Remove glove box door by removing both screws at the bottom of the door.

2. First pop the the little flap with a fuse/relay out of the black plastic shield in the upper portion of the glove box opening. Next push it back behind the shield through the opening. Next remove the 3 screws holding the shield in place. Don't pull this shield out yet!! Read step 3 first.

3. Gently pull the shield out. Be careful because the glove box light is still plugged into this part. It is located on the right side of the shield. Once it is pulled out slightly, unplug the bulb from the harness and now you can fully remove the part.

4. Now you can see the vertical cover where the air filters reside. The cover is about 5 inches tall and about 1 inch wide. It has 2 tabs on the upper portion of the cover. Squeeze these tabs towards each other and pull the cover off.

5. The filters are now exposed. They are stacked on top of each other. Pull the first filter out then lift the next filter up and pull out. Put new filters back in and reverse the procedure.


Parts needed:
2 Cabin air filters (Toyota PN 88568-60010 if you drop CDan a pm)
1 Phillips screw driver

Time needed:
No more than 15 minutes

SOURCE: do I chanage water pump

Hi there,

Most Japanese designed engines have an internally mounted water pump, usually driven by the cambelt.

When we talk in terms of cam design, there are two types of engines: a) Interference and b) non-interference.

An interference egine means - if the cambelt were to break whilst engine is running, there will be major internal engine damage.
A non-interference engine means - if the cambelt were to break whilst engine is running, there will NOT be any serious internal damage to the engine.

Note: the GS300 engine (3.0L 6-cyl) is considered a Non-Interference engine.

So, one of the most critical compenents which MUST be changed, is the cambelt itself. Most manufacturers recommend changing this belt every 90,000 - 100,000km's (80,000 miles). If you have a non-interference engine, this period is not as critical, but should still be changed soon, to avoid the inconvenience of a breakdown whilst travelling.

The 2nd critical compenent is the Water Pump. The worst possible outcome of a failed waterpump, is your engine will suddenly drain of all coolant, resulting in serious overheating, causing serious internal damage to your engine.

Although there is no specified time to change the waterpump, a waterpump endures wear and tear like any component and lifespan can reduce rapidly beyond 100,000km's (80,000 mles). As the waterpump is situated next to the cambelt, it is a general rule to change out both cambelt and waterpump at the same time.

The majority of the cost to replace the cambelt, is in labor (ie opening the engine etc). If you choose to replace only one of these components, you will need to be prepared to pay for same procedure again in future, to replace the 2nd component.

Therefore, it can be more economical in the long term, to have both components changed together.

Hope this helps...


Scott

Engine noise after timing belt change 2004 gx470


Is that the noise you mean? Rough and loud? Yeah, it makes you wonder if the timing is off by a tooth or two, doesn't it?
There may be a viewing/access plug on the camshaft sprocket cover to see the cam sprocket timing mark, when the crankshaft is turned to TDC, or 0 degrees. If no plug or access to see the cam sprocket, it might be wise to re-check the timing. Is there any difficulty in starting the engine? Or does it seem to run warmer than normal? Was the belt tension set correctly? Just a few things to consider, good luck.

Vehicle vibrates on reaching 40 mph.dashboard shows check engine


It sounds like you have a misfire condition. It is probably time for a tune-up. Lexus recommends spark plugs at 60K and the timing belt replaced 100k for your 470. hope this helps.
