Default RX330/350/400h DIY's (please help nominate links!)

Hey everyone, I'm sure all of you have seen the extensive list of RX300 diy's compiled by Lexmex, so I figured it would be helpful to have a list of DIY's for the Second Generation RX's as well. I have spare time today, so I figured I'd go ahead make the list myself.

If I missed any DIY's, feel free to add them to the list.

Default creating organized sticky of useful threads

It seems like some of the other forums have a sticky with links to older useful threads on various recurrent topics -- would it be possible to create such a thread for the second gen RX? Topics ranging from buying, maintaining and modifying would be useful.

This, along with the forum search feature, should serve as a great guide for future new RX owners.

Agreed. For my 2nd Gen Gs350 I spend a lot of time in the DIY, Tips, Tricks etc. thread - extremely helpful.

Several members in the Rx forum have created DIYs including myself - perhaps we can accumulate all of these into one thread?

Most useful would be topics that are asked over and over again. For example - How to reset the Maintenance Required Light or how to program the Homelink Garage Door Opener.

Great idea and could use all your help in building it!

If you have thoughts on recurring topics and especially helpful links please post them along with the URL to the thread you have in mind.

I made a thread a few months ago but none of the moderators made it a sticky, so it's kind of useless and hard to find.

Great stuff and start to this ! We can't read every thread so helpful to pm a moderator or report a post sometimes


Merging this thread with that one and retitle.
