rbx10,

First the scratches and now this? Don't tell me the dealer wouldn't fix this too? Hello, an 08 GX shouldn't need a bulb replaced that soon. Work the Service department on this and any issues that may come up.

Good luck.

This should still be under the Lexus warranty, I would figure.

I bought the car like a 1 1/2 month ago. the scratches happen when my wife was driving it. As far as the bulb, It's a faulty bulb that cost 3 bucks. I just have find out how to replace it. I'll see if its in the manual.

Thanks

I've got the same problem with my '05. The light is actually intermittent. If you figure out how to fix it, please post up the procedure.

Also, my DAC switch doesn't light up, is it supposed to?

Mine doesn't either. I asked the dealer about it @ the last service and they couldn't repro it (aka they didn't even look).

When I find out how I will post step by step with pictures.
Still researching. I ask the dealer how they kind of didn't have an answer...(Yeah right) All they say was to change the led bulb. They just want to take my loot that's all.

rbx10,

Is the issue finding the replacement bulb or doing the actual replacement?

I got the bulb already. I just don't see how to get in there. I don't see any side slot where I can use a small flat screwdriver to open the casing.
Its driving me nutZ
I wish these tedious how-to replacement would be in the manual

Here you go. Look at step 16. REMOVE CONSOLE UPPER PANEL GARNISH
FRONT. I would think that you'll need to remove the step 5. REMOVE CONSOLE UPPER PANEL GARNISH NO.2 as well.

Hope this helps.
