Our memories are notorious for playing tricks like this on us (at least mine is). I'm sure nobody changed your wheel.

I'm not sure I buy the narrative in the video. Most (if not all) modern car seat leather (including Lexus) have an impermiable clear coat applied to the seats.

jarm:

Try changing gas suppliers. The rotten egg smell is usually caused by high sulfur content in the gas. If that doesn't help, try them again or a different dealership

Sounds like its time to find a new dealer. And write to Lexus corporate and the dealership owner to tell them why.

I believe the ASL is based only on speed. Every 20mph increase, increases my ASL by one unit on the 5 unit bar, regardless of the road surface, windows open etc.

Try drilling it and using one of those reverse thread, broken-bolt removers. Failing that, drill it out altogether and re-tap the threads.

When this happens on an LS460, its the door jamb switch not signaling correctly. Possibly high impedance from corrosion being read as an open door?

I have a 1999 RX300 (OBDII) and a 2008 IS250 (OBDII) in addition to my 2007 LS460. Will this app read the codes from the older two cars when I get a CEL?

Can't speak to the front one but the rear one is a J shaped plastic molding that's about $120.00. And as lbintab says, you have to remove the bumper cover to fix it.
