I believe the dealer is lying to you. Lexus service reps always went out of their way to do the warranty work and never did I have a complaint. As long as your vehicle is still under warranty, i.e. 48 months and mileage, your next step may be to contact the area rep for Lexus.
The only other time we had a problem with a dealer with warranty or the last time, not under warranty , was the overcharge of my wife when she took her Pilot in for service. I caught them inflating the bill and complaned. They sent us a check for the overbilling. We stopped servicing our Pilot there at the Honda dealer and found another less dishonest dealer.
Also. The right headlight on our RX 330 was also our problem and they fixed it without any b.s.
Good luck to all and stay safe.

It's my passenger side headlight too with moisture. Is this a common problem and coincidence that's it the passenger side headlight assembly?
I'll call my dealer this week and let you know what they say.
#1639 of 1861 Removing the headlight assembly
Dec 09, 2008 (9:03 pm)
Does anyone know or has a link to a site that shows how to remove the headlight.
I removed the wheel, removed the fender liner, removed the bolt that holds the side of the headlight, removed two obvious bolts that holds the top portion, and removed the bolt that supports the bottom. In total I remove four bolts.
On the replacement headlight I see four mounting holes, The headlight is loose but I have heck of a time sliding it out, or pull up and slide, tilt to the side and out
I have removed several headlights before. None has been as puzzling as this one.

My 2006 RX330 battery with 35K miles on it is dead. Does anyone know if it's covered under the warranty? The electronics on the dash went crazy before it went dead, so I'm wondering if it's an electrical issue?

Batteried sometimes die for no reason. Being a 2006 and 36K miles, go to your dealer and have them check the electrical system to make sure nothing is making the battery go dead and have them replace the battery.
Batteries are always covered under warranty.

Battery in our '04 RX went dead after 2 years. Probably from lack of use since vehicle only had 12,000 miles on it. Anyway, dealer sent a service vehicle, took the car, replaced the battery under warranty (to my surprise), returned the car all washed, too! Probably felt guilty after all the failed attempts to fix the noisy dashboard and window mouldings blowing off.
#1643 of 1861 Wheel for '06 RX330

Does anyone know where to get a new wheel other than the dealer that's cheaper??

I had to replace a wheel on my '05 RX 330 after I hit a curb. My local Les Schwab service location got a used wheel at somewhat less than the dealer price for a new one. I would think that other tire stores ( Discount Tire, Big O Tires, etc.) could do the same.

#1646 of 1861 Is a 2001 RX 300 with 102,550 for 9,995 a good deal or?
Jan 08, 2009 (11:11 pm)
A local dealer has a a super clean 2001 RX300 for sale at $9,995.00. It has been serviced by the local Lexus dealer and he indicated all records are available. I am a little hesitant after reading of all the problems shared in this forum from being an unafe 4WD vehicle from one person to misting problems.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
