Default ES330/300 DIY (do-it-yourself) & technical tips

I decided to place this thread for the purpose of making common issues and methods readily available for all ES owners. These include often-discussed topics like "How do I clear the headlights?" and "Where can I get the instrument cluster lights fixed?". This will NOT include debatable topics like "Can 20's fit in my ES?" or "Will a K&N air filter be OK for my ES?". Remember that as far as this thread is concerned, we are looking for factual answers, and nothing opinionated.

When posting in this thread, please include a brief description of the topic or issue, and a valid URL (it can be CL-related or non-CL related). Only post here if you DO have a topic AND a URL(s) to share.

Hopefully you guys will find this thread useful, and not have to rely on making new threads within the ES forum and asking infinitely repeated questions Don't forget to use the search engine too!

Doug....great posting...I know I'm probably so late to this party but ....

we've met at a couple NE meets early this year (april 25 - Tri brand meet and also Alley pond park in fall of last year) but I've been MIA since so you may not remember me.....
I am glad you found that posting i did of the aftermarket HID install that was years ago..... I know it has help a few people ....Ive gotten PM's on it...


Nice to see that wiring diagram of the radio....for the 2000 ES...boy that would have come in handy when I was doing my system....lol...but to have it all condensed here in one thread was an excellent Idea!....and great write up and pics on the bulbs....i know w couple ES guys who had that minor issue..

thirdmotio wrote up an excellent how-to on accessing the door panel in a '97-'01 ES (may be different procedure on all other ES, use caution).

I noticed some are on a first name basis here. My name is Mark. I doubt the Bass Improvement Project would qualify to be stickied so here goes.

Cupholder Fix (92-96)

2-Din to 2.5-DIN Conversion (92-96)

Default How to clean and soften leather seats w/ pics

Not really a repair procedure, but doing this once a year will keep your seats soft and prevent cracking for years
