Default please help - how to remove glovebox surround?

hi all

I'm trying to access and replace the tiny LED in the glovebox of my 2nd Gen RX.

I know how to remove the two plastic holders and get the glovebox itself to tilt forward more, but that doesn't get me any access to the light.

I need to know how to pull the surrounding trim off?

I undid the 2 screws along the top edge, but that didn't seem to help.

Has anyone been able to do this?


thank you

There was a TSB on Glove Box rattle, I think I detailed how to break it down. Please search.

Thanks Mandyfig


Before I got your message, I managed to find a useful writeup (actually about installing an Ipod adapter), but gave good pointers on how to remove the glovebox and surround

http://lexus.sewellparts.com/pdf/PT54500082_rx.pdf


my tips:
a. undo the 2 screws along the top edge of glovebox. Let the glovebox unit stay, held in place by the 3 top clips (good Lexus engineering design!)

b. remove the horizontal trimpiece under the glovebox (3 pinch clips at front then it slides forward)

c. remove the door trim piece (with Lexus nameplate), just enough to reach the 10mm bolt holding the lower corner of the glovebox unit.

d. undo the 10mm on the opposite lower corner (near transmission tunnel)

e. Unclip the wiring harness for the tailgate switch, then you can pull out the whole glovebox unit!
