Check the cabin air filter. This is only coming from the front, so it's not the rear A/C?

If the cabin filter is clean, my guess would be the blower fan bearings.

I'm thinking salvage yard as well.

You might try looking at someone else's cover to see if there's a part number or DOT number molded into it.

Talk to the warranty company. Use the word "consideration", as in "We're fully paid-up, but have this problem and were hoping we could get some consideration and help from you with this."

Some cycling is normal, so that the expansion valve, etc. don't ice up. But I agree - double check the pressures.

If Lexus is allocating to dealers a couple of dashes each per month - yeah, find a smaller dealer.

Modern AC systems are pretty sensitive to charge levels and lubricating oil amounts. While a Pep-Boys recharge kit *may* work, I'd rather let the pros handle it.

You don't have to take it to the dealer for this - any automotive AC shop can check the system out.

The enhancement program ends in mid-2017, and I don't know if the cut-off will include cars that are still on the list waiting. A good question for Lexus Corporate to answer.

Assuming you're talking about the lever on the console (and not the transmission) - it's possible that it's worn out or is broken. Here's the diagram with the parts:

Only while backing?

It's possible that it's one of the exhaust manifolds (a somewhat common fault on the 4.7 liter), but I would also check stuff like a rock trapped in the brake disc, etc.

Look in the owner's manual folder (the "brick") to see if there's a tire warranty brochure. The previous owner might have left it in there from when the GX was first delivered.
