That last video posted showing the whole process is amazing. Just used a solid zip tie instead of a washer as I did not have one handy, and the problem is fixed (for now?)

This forum is awesome.

Yikes, have we discovered an actual assembly mistake in a Lexus?

BTW, good fix! The washers look like the ones that go in garden hoses, yesno?
From the looks of it, it really isn't a design flaw. I'd say it's more of the fact that two metal pieces rubbing together can cause things wear wear off and shift or maybe the nut backed itself off a bit or something along those lines.

I experienced the same issue. No videos on YouTube. Does anyone know where to find "how-to" instructions for a 1999 LS400?
