You might want to check your production date. They changed this part in April of 2010. This problem is not unique to the F. All the 2UR platforms are affected, so it wouldn't matter if you bought...

Yes, but knocking them out is a bad idea. (http://www.clublexus.com/forums/8438154-post6.html) They need to be pressed out if you want your wheel bearings to last.

I seriously doubt it will happen soon unless you can get one from a junkyard. They're the same for all RWD 2IS sedans. New is over $1600 from Lexus.

It condenses inside the engine and washes down the inside of the engine. It ends up as a puddle on top of the oil with lots of organic acids from blowby dissolved in it. It is why the Total Base...
