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.
2 Cabin air filters (Toyota PN 88568-60010 if you drop CDan a pm)
1 Phillips screw driver
No more than 15 minutes

The VSC on TRAC off lights will come on when there is an air fuel related issue.
If you have recently filled your tank, unscrew and tighten the gas cap till it clicks. The lights may need to be reset if they stay on after that. They will also be triggered by a fouled O2 sensor ins the engine or exhaust as well as a sticky throttle valve.
If a dealership resets the lights they can attach a code reader under dash to determine the cause in about 5 minutes.

Is the suspension fluid low. If it is, try first to add specific Suspension Fluid for LX470. It is part number 08886-01805 and any Lexus Dealer would be able to look up. Cost about $ 30 it comes in 2.5 Liters. If driving at higher speeds it is normal for it to drop just a bit and resume to balanced height when parked.
