Lx 470 technical service bulletins (tsbs) ih8mud forum gas engineer salary

#

Listed below are all the LX 470 TSBs (technical service bulletins) listed on the US National Highway Transportation Safety Administration website as of February 2007. This may not be all or even most of the bulletins issued by Lexus/Toyota. If you are aware of any other bulletins let me know by PM and I’ll add them.

Note that the Lexus TSBs are not identical to the Toyota TSBs for the 100 ( LC 100 TSB Thread). I suggest looking at both lists if your problem system is common to both vehicles. In some years Lexus issued "General" TSBs in addition to model specific ones. I have included them if they looked to be relevant from the summaries.

I will add a "MUD Notes:" line with any info that will be useful for board members that is not contained in the summary. For an example see the "MINIMIZING TRANSFER CASE NOISE" near the middle of the 1998 list. This info should be from an authoritative source (i.e. the TSB) and could include a link to a forum thread focused on the TSB. If you have information and/or experiance with a particular TSB and are willing to help other board members then I will list you as a PM contact if you want.

TORRANCE, Calif., July 29, 2010 — Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., today announced that Lexus intends to conduct a voluntary safety recall of approximately 39,000 2003-2007 Model Year LX 470 vehicles to address a steering shaft condition. No other Toyota or Lexus vehicles are involved in this safety recall.

Lexus has determined that the construction of the steering shaft on involved LX 470s is such that the snap ring on the shaft may disengage when the vehicle experiences an unusually severe impact to the front wheels, such as striking a deep pothole. If the snap ring becomes disengaged and the steering wheel is then repeatedly turned to the full locked position, the steering shaft may disengage over time.

“At Lexus, we are committed to setting a new standard for quality customer care and aggressive attention to the safety of our drivers,” said Mark Templin, group vice president and general manager of Lexus. “Our engineers have thoroughly investigated this issue and have identified a robust and durable remedy that will help prevent this condition from affecting drivers in the future.”

Summary: CERTAIN SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 108, "LAMPS, REFLECTIVE DEVICES, AND ASSOCIATED EQUIPMENT." THE DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHTS DO NOT MEET LUMINOUS INTENSITY STANDARD.

When vehicle is operated under severe conditions with repetitive high "G" brake application forward and backward, excessive forces applied to the brake rotor may loosen the front brake rotor bolt/s. If vehicle operation continues in this condition, one or more bolts may loosen further (unwind) and eventually rattle free.

What are the defects? On certain Land Cruiser 100 and Lexus LX470 vehicles, there is a possibility that the dash board wire harness may be abnormally twisted changing its intended routing in the vehicle allowing contact with the unprotected edge of the pedal support bracket. If the vehicle is continuously driven on corrugated roads in this condition, the wire harness will rub against the pedal support bracket damaging the wire insulation cover resulting in a short circuit and blown fuse.

What are the hazards? If the snap ring becomes disengaged and the steering is then repeatedly turned to the full lock position, there is a possibility that the steering shaft may dislodge, which could result in loss of steering causing an accident.

What are the defects? On certain Land Cruiser Saraha 100 and Lexus LX470 vehicles, the construction of the steering shaft is such that the snap ring on the shaft may disengage when the vehicle experiences an unusually severe impact to the front wheels (for example, striking a deep pothole in the roadway).

Defect Details: When vehicle is operated under severe conditions with repetitive high "G" brake application forward and backward, excessive forces applied to the brake rotor may loosen the front bake rotor bolt/s. If vehicle operation continues in this condition, one or more bolts may loosen further (unwind) and eventually rattle. Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted individually by letter. – Info at Product Recalls Austalia
