Default A Couple Might Be Out There...

The quote below is from my parts manager at Johnson Lexus of Raleigh. If you send me the VIN we can investigate further, source it from them and ship it to you.

"The boot is no longer available from Lexus. There are a couple of dealers that show 1 from the dealer locator. Would need VIN to identify which option to inquire from the dealers showing 1 in stock, only model I see a boot like this is for a 1994-1996 SC300 5-speed.

I just did a 5 speed swap in my 92 sc300 so my car is currently looking like this for example. I just never expected that this piece would be so hard to find!!!

It's weird, the part was stupid cheap compared to other factory parts. It's like 10% of the cost of the window trims, front or back. Maybe Lexus should have jacked up the price and kept producing it.

Both part numbers got discontinued 6-12 months ago. The first one to get discontinued was the one for models without the heated seats, then the one for the heated seats got discontinued shortly afterwards.

Wow that sucks. Slowly everything is getting discontinued. Looks like your gonna have to use the 98-00 automatic bezel and make some kind of custom boot. But then again it might not work unless you have a short shifter.

Let me check for you guys....I may still have my original one that had the seated heats buttons.

It should still be in good shape....I just opted to get a new one without the heated seats

I checked on driftmotion for him too. Maybe someone can get the dimensions and add it to our CAD FILE SHARING THREAD so we can get it 3D printed or CNC
