I have the same problem, the needles are fading in the middle, I doubt that they are painted, thatís hard for me to believe, I think that the needs actually have some kind of elimination source in them and thatís what is going out, it sounds about right that you have to buy every thing though, Hmmm...I wonder if Camay indeglo gauges can be swapped? Any way try looking around for a good wrecking yard, there is one about 30 minutes away from me, and my dad grabbed some parts off of a wrecked up LS400 for his LS. They seem to have the upper class cars at this place, I wonder if there is a place like that around you, so you don't have to pay new prices for them. And also is there and gauges that would work in there other then stock?

Unhappy beware

Do a search for my previous post on this exact same subject.

Beware, after much research I came to the same conclusions. Either replace the entire cluster, or pop in some needles. I do know a guy who sells the needles seperately, but they are not cheap.

Basically if you take the needles out wrong you could mess up the calibration of the gauge. So be careful when replacing the needles.

I still have not gotten around to fixing this on my ES, its hard to find a junkyard with late model Lexus parts.

My Lexus dealer quoted $650 installed to fix the problem!

How does one certify the mileage after these replacements. Does dept. of motor vehicle have some sort of form one could use?
