SOURCE: Telescopic Steering wheel won't move down - I hear a gear spinning

Open the gear motor on the left hand side of the telelscopic assembly. Take the plate off held by 4 philips screws. Using a 10mm socket, remove the bolt holding the platic gear. Remove plastic gear and insert the reverse way. Over the years, one side of the gears get worn out.

SOURCE: Is the "certified" distinction for an '05 LS430 worth the extra $

Most people would tell you that the 2005 LS430 has the best new car record of any car ever rated by JD Powers at less than 100 defects per 100 vehicles. That MAY be true in general, but I can tell you that I have had a LOT of problems with my 2005 LS430 ULTRA model. This is the top of the line LS and has a lot of stuff that is just waiting to go bad. The other models of LS430 are not nearly as complex. I did purchase an extended warranty policy from a third party warranty company for $2,100 when the vehicle had around 40,000 miles on it. At around 75,000 miles I had a rear strut replaced (there is an air suspension system is on the ULTRA model only), and the strut alone costs $1,250. I just had the other one repalced on the rear at 91,000 miles (another $1,250 plus allignment). If you have the auto transmission go out, that is going to be a LOT more than $1,000. The temperature controlled seats (again, available as an option on one or two LS 430 models, standard on the ULTRA model) will cost another $500 to $800 to repair if a heating / cooling module goes bad.

I believe the $1,000 is worth it, but that's coming from the owner of a ULTRA model. I have not heard of anyone else having nearly this amount of trouble with their Lexus, but I do not know anyone else with an ULTRA. The other models of the 2005 LS430 should be somewhat better on the wallet.

"One" wheel height sensor went bad after 3,500 miles, and it took Lexus 9 months to diagnose the problem. Then they replaced only one sensor, and the problem came right back again. I had to submit a claim as a Lemon under the Maryland Lemon Law before Lexus would agree to really fix the problem by replacing all 4 wheel height sensors again.

At around 40,000 miles the brake pedal started to sink while I was sitting at a stoplight, sort of like there was air in the brakeline, but these are "brake-by-wire" systems. Lexus at first did not acknowledge the problem even existed, but eventually replaced the master cylinder which didn't solve the problem either. It was only after the brake fluid was flushed and refilled twice that the issue FOR THE MOST PART went away. (I believe the problem is in the anti-lock brake system, but Lexus doesn't agree, since tehy really still don't acknowledge a problem).

After 35,000 miles or so, the climate controlled seats started heating when placed in the cooling mode; they actually heat up 10 degrees within two minutes of being energized in the cooling position. Lexus could not explain the condition, but has not fixed the seats either. Summer's coming and these seats will be getting pretty warm again this year as well.

As you might expect, the "Pursuit of Perfection" thing doesn't ring true to me at all. Given the repair cost of anything that might go wrong on the LS, I would DEFINATELY believe that the $1,000 is a wise expenditure and should give you SOME peace of mind, at least.

Good luck!.

SOURCE: Telescopic Steering wheel won't move down or up

Yes it would be perfectly ok to disegauge the auto switch to keep it from moving again. It needs a tilt motor replaced . not a easy job.

there is a tsb for the telescoping motor and linkeage, also sometimes the ground wire to the horn gets torn from use, since it runs down the steering cloumn, or possibly just a fuse.
