For programming the remote for my 97 es300 does it work for a used remote off ebay or does it need to be new?
Thanks!

It does not need to be a new remote, as long as it is the correct model for you car it should work. The programing procedure is used the get the reciever into a "learning mode" so that it will recognize the key fob transmitter as one that it should respond to.

ES300714 -

The air filter should be basically behind the the dash on the bottom. If you reach near the gas pedal, you should be able to peel the carpeting up and see a slot where the air filter isnt, or you should be able to remove it. If you google around for air filter diagram it may be better able to show you

I was wondering if and how I could convert the trunk on my es330 to make it automatically open and shut like the trunk on the ls460...?

"How to Remove Stock Stereo Unit (PDF)" for the 97-01, no longer works. I found something similar here.

I second this request especially the rear motor mounts on a 97 - 01 ES300.
Any info would be helpful.

I've been trying to program a fob (correct model for my 97 ES300) for the past week or so without success. I go thru the steps...

Sit in driver seat, driver door unlocked and open, all others closed and locked
manual open/close cycle 5 times each
close door
open door
manual open/close cycle

...then nothing. No automatic cycling by receiver to confirm it's in program mode.

I even tried cycling with the power locks the second time as some have suggested... still no automatic cycling to allow programming of the fob.

Anyone have any ideas? Much appreciated.

I have a 04 ES300, the door lock do not work with the key remote. Do I need to replace the complete actuator or is there just a motor or selenoid that can be replaced?
