It has all...

This happened to me a few times. Dealer diagnosed and nothing showed up. They told me to put a different brand gasoline. I've gone from Mobil to 76 and it hasn't happened since.

Used trim

They quoted me $100 knowing that this part is in high demand. http://www.tlsautorecycling.com/search/2004/lexus/rx330/112457.html

I'm paying $7 more + shipping for a brand new part.
