Default Automatic Transmission - Tsib 003-04

I found this TSIB from NHTSA web sites. The release date was April 6, 2004. Does anyone know what this is about? The summary is

THE PROPER IDENTIFICATION OF THE 7 SOLENOIDS USED IN THE U150E/U151E/U151F TRANSMISSIONS.

It's not about a problem. All it does is provide an exploded view of the transmission, highlighting where 7 solenoids are located. It then gives each solenoid a cross-reference code which can be used to find the correct part number in the parts catalog.

Thank you rxdriver. Have Lexus issued any TSIBs related to the rear wipper and engine ticking? Or any other new TSIB since April, 2004?

I haven't looked for new TSIB's since mid-April - I usually check every 2-3 months and post what I find.
To that point, there haven't been any for eiither the rear wiper or the ticking noise. The rear wiper hasn't worked since 1999, so I'm not holding my breath on that. I believe that a couple of people have posted things about the ticking noise suggesting that some dealers have tried to do something with it. A TSIB might not be far off, if it's not already out.

FWIW, Rain-X does improve the rear wiper issue for a while. I complain about it every time I have service on my RX330 and they just replace the blade. Wish Lexus would fix that.
