The part # is 8484021010. The part only cost between $60 -$75. So for now I'm waiting on a part to arrive, but always welcome if anyone out there already went through this. Please share your knowledge and experiences.
I ordered the part from sewell and unscrewed the switch from the outside, removed the goo which was very bad ( had to use paint thinner) took the rubber off the new part and replaced in to the old switch without taking any door components apart. Works great.
If you do this as soon as it starts to break down you will not have to do much cleaning. I waited too long.
Too bad Lexus doesn't sell just the rubber cover, it would save a lot of money.
