Are you sure this is a rattle or is it more of a creaking noise? I have a 2000 ES300 and had an issue when I would go over speed bumps and the noise would drive me nuts! However replacing the bushing in the top of the strut mount is expensive due to the labor involved.. Replacement of the strut or the bushing isn't necessary. Just open the hood, locate the strut housing and you ll be able to see the black rubber bushing in the middle. Obtain a can of Heavy Duty silicone aerosol spray and attach a straw to the spray tip. Using a flathead screwdriver wedge the screwdriver between the top of the bushing and the metal pushing the screwdriver all the way to the edge of the metal underneath the roof of the metal housing. Then pry the edge of the bushing away from the metal housing so that the top of the edge of the bushing exposed and stick the straw end of the silicone into the spot and spray generously. Only slight bushing movement will be obtained as the bushing is pretty stiff but it will be enough. Work your way around using this technique until you get the spray fully around the bushing 360 degrees getting it into the area between the edge of the bushing and the metal. Then spray the silicone onto the top of the bushing filling it all the way up until it spills over the metal. After it drains down, repeat again making sure you fill it above the rim of the bushing so it seeps into the area between the bushing and he metal housing (or frame) because this is where the rubbing is taking place that is creating that awful noise. Repeat on the other side and your done. The main goal is to get the silicone into the area between the metal and the bushing along the edge. This happens to be the way I was able to do it. This totally solved my problem and now the car is so quiet there aren't any knocking, creaking or rattling noises. This was a hard solution to explain without visuals, hope you can follow. This will work for sure. The Heavy Duty Silicone spray I used was manufactured by CRC and I bought it from Walmart.

SOURCE: need to replace thermostat but not sure where it

Follow the lower hose up to the water pump where there is a housing for the thermostat. To remove this you will first, want to take the front right tire off then the dust guard for it; the thermostat housing should now be viseable. Then you will want to take the plastic windshield washer, and engine coolant reserviors off to make the job easier. Next take the bottom rad. hose off the water pump(where it goes to, from the radiator). then struggle for awhile with taking the three nuts that hold the thermostat housing together (a wobbler bit on a socket wrench can make this job easier). Once these are off you can unplug electric plug on top of the housing, pull that part of the housing off and there the thermostat sits in all of its evasive gloriousness waitng for you .

SOURCE: how to replace third brake light on 1997 lexus es 300

"To get access to the 3rd brake light:

- Place each hand against both sides of the plastic housing, and firmly grasp and pull the housing towards you. It might not budge at first, but it should move once you get a good grip on it.

- Pull the housing out just enough so that you can see the brake light bulb and stick your hand underneath. Ignore the speaker wires.

- Pull out the old bulb from the socket (it plugs in/out). Wear rubber gloves when handling the new bulb, and put the new one into the socket.

- Reverse the steps here to put the 3rd brake light back into place. Test out your brake light, and you're done" quoted from lexusk8 @ clublexus.com (great forum)

How much should it cost to replace the timing belt and water pump on a lexus es 2001


My car is a 2001 Lexus ES300 and has 106K miles. I brought it to my mechanic to replace Thermostat, Thermostat Gasket, Timing Belt, Water Pump, Camseals Kit, Crankseal, Air Filter, Fuel Filter, Timing Component and Spark Plugs for a total of $981.24 ($510 of it is labor). He charges at least 1/2 of a dealer so expect to pay more elsewhere. The care drives like a brand new car and I will keep driving it for another 10 years!!!

Where is the thermostat located on a 1992 Lexus es300


there are two large coolant hoses connected to your radiator. Follow the lowest hose to the engine which is connected to a pipe. The pipe is connected to an pipe-elbow. Behind the pipe-elbow you will find the thermostat. It is troublesome to replace due to the compressor and alternator that are in the way.

Anyone having this problem should be aware that there is a second cigarette lighter inside the bottom of the console. You should check to see if that unit is working or not as well. If both units are out, you could have a bigger problem. You wouldn't want to replace the lighter unit and have it still not work.
