I rode around with them in the trunk until I passed a scrapyard (ie: recycler). The rotors, bag of old brake hardware and a few miscellaneous items brought about $5. The money wasn't the issue, I...

Best place I have found to buy Shin Etzu is your local Honda dealer. I think it is about 12 to 13 dollars. They may have to order it, it only takes a few days. I usually call first, they order it...

Engine and Transmission Mounts

At 125k, I notice my '02 UL is riding slightly rougher. I also notice a bit of vibration at idle when the hood is raised. On my LS400, this was the gentle beginning of the sign to change the engine...

On my LS400, not my LS430, I had a similar problem. Short story, the dealer used Dextron rather than T-IV. If you look at the Valvoline spec sheet, it says Dextron is acceptable for T-IV but not...

It is generally the dual filament bulbs, such as the back-up lights that go first. It can be very difficult to detect.

I may be wrong but I believe the Beatsonic is available for both ML Nav and non-Nav cars.

New Rotors - What to do with the old ones?

I just did a complete brake job on my '02 UL with 125k. Decided to go with new OEM rotors to get that very smooth feel. It turned out great. Now I have to dispose of the used rotors. Do they have...

It looks like a double DIN receiver. The Beatsonic kit should work just fine.

I recall someone saying the nav bezel was around $80 from the dealer. Try Sewell Lexus through the vendor directory for a good price.

What to do about it?

I am having similar issues with my '02 UL. I hear what I believe is the air compressor at start-up or at lights when stopped more frequently and at a louder volume. Question is, can anything be...

Whether '02 came with radar or laser (the display says radar ready) the question is why the regular cruise control after bypassing the sensor cruise doesn't work.

By the way, if the sensor is...

Cruise Control Failure - '02UL Radar Cruise

The sensor on my '02 UL w/120k was cracked when I acquired the car at around 50k 4+ years ago. I use the cruise only a couple of times a year and the manual override worked perfectly until this...

I think Lynzoid is correct. While there was no need for stainless steel over regular hoses, I wanted to try them. For about $50 a set, $100 for all four, the price was reasonable. If I was going...

I found it on Amazon after failing to find it on E-bay. $27.38 with Amazon Prime free shipping for cable and software. Over 20 very positive and informative reviews. For under $30, why not?

Since you said the ashtray is in the same place as the LS400, I believe you may be looking in the wrong place. The ashtray is located to the right of the shift lever, on the "deck" of the console. ...
