From the picture, your shield looks to be in fairly good condition, Penguin. The shield uses 10mm bolts about 1/2" long, all the same. Then, I believe there is a a plastic push pin or two in there...

I am not sure what you are asking. I did not post a link for a filler plug as far as I know. There is a picture of the engine with the plug.

My 02 LS430 is a 'tank' in the snow. Of course I have Michelin X-iceII on it and that makes a tremendous difference. I throw an extra 100 pounds in the trunk and it is as surefooted as they come....

First, I would want to buy a new filler plug. Then how to remove the old one?

Here is what I would try in descending order:

It is in a similar position but is not a 17mm bolt like the first gen. It is an allen bolt.

Well it could be stripped out (rounded) but it should be a 10mm allen, not a torx. I bought a bit to fit my 3/8 in drive ratchet when I refilled my system. I suppose you could slowly fill and let the...

The answer, unfortunately, is "no". Mileage/time is the best way. You have to at least remove some covers to see the belt.

It is not real hard but not a simple job either. You will find lots of plastic covers, tubes and connectors in your way. Then of course, the spark plugs are "deep well" so you have these seal tubes...

Tom, I believe the 98 LS400 with VVT might be close to your engine. Not exact but many similarities. In 98, the engine was changed in many ways and the cams must come out to replace the cam seals....
