It's alot safer for the rest of the housing, and you can still use your hands to open it up easier. Our manufacturers only produce replacement lights that meet the highest of industry standards, ensuring on-road safety and reducing the probability of breakdowns in component construction. Odds are the dealer kept the lamps and producing the goods is necessary for approval of a warranty claim. On the back where it's stamped Toyota, that is a tab that opens and reveals a foam covered vent. I ordered them and received in a week perfect fit. Actually what I have found over time is that water gets pulled in thru the vent holes in the front bumper and is blown on the headlight housing from underneath and behind the bumper. At that point I said to heck with it and spent a few hours on the lathe making one out of aluminum, which did work fine although I would have preferred to just buy the grommet and be done with it.
The lamps could also be dried, repaired, and sold but not necessarily over the dealer parts counter. This, just to see if truck did make it into 4 wd. . Headlights grow dimmer by up to 20% over time and eventually burn out - for this reason, we recommend changing your headlights in pairs. It wasnt the bulb so I returned the bulb, Now im thinking its the Head light ballast.
The labor is a little over an hour. Which is mounted on the end of one of the fuel rails. Also, if after you dry the headlight out and you can see water spots and crud, and want to open the headlight and clean it I can show you how to do that also. Once you have it dry in there, see if you still have the flickering issue. I had the bleeder screw on the gasoline cap of my 2 stroke roto-tiller fall out due to the vibration of the tiller and was lost.
Actually what I have found over time is that water gets pulled in thru the vent holes in the front bumper and is blown on the headlight housing from underneath and behind the bumper. Open the hood of your 2006 Lexus and locate the mounting screws on the top of the headlight assembly. Many car owners love the high tech stuff until it fails and the repair cost is revealed. The first step in the diagnostic chart for the headlamp system is to perform a diagnostic systems check. These are controlled by the Body Control Module. I replaced the bleeder screw with the bolt and drilled a small hole in the cap for a vent.
I thought the bulb burnt out, so I bought a new bulb. I pulled the parts and ask him what I owed him, he said nothing. Lexus has reinvented the Tucker headlight, the inboard headlight follows the front wheels when making a turn. This involved a 1980 Chevy Citation which at the time could be had for about 6k dollars brand new. I thought the ballast burnt.
Also, if you look closely at the construction of the headlight, you will see it is not a sealed design anyway. Also, make sure the cap on the back is on tight. If you do, then you'll have to replace the ballast, and when you do, don't try to seal it, that won't help. Tester Prices get out of hand by design as well. That seems like 10X as much as it should cost.

I ended up finding the ballast replacement by luck on a local CraigsList, otherwise I would find the lowest price bid on ebay for it. A check at the boneyards showed that the one yard that had a booster wanted 150 for it. The tiller works just fine. There is another vent with a black rubber hose on the back side near the narrow part of the headlight as well. My goto independent makes the same estimate as well.
I thought the ballast burnt. The entire brake booster at over 400 dollars must be purchased if I want that grommet. So if you put a peice of plastic under the headlight behind the bumper, it should stop the water from having access to the headlight. All of the parts carried on Go-Parts. These features are not standard on less expensive models. After replacing the new bulb, it happened exactly like my old bulb. You'll have better luck doing that.
? Im ignoring the mositure issue right now till I have a nice day to fix it. I would recommend scanning the body control module for fault codes before doing anything else. She was complaining of a gas smell from the vehicle along with it stalling at stops with a Check Engine light on. They may not be as classy as a new Lexus, but at least I have money in my pockets. It light up lightly and then total black out. So now the vehicle is fixed, and she has six extra injectors waiting in the wings. According to the wiring diagram, they are wired to the Headlamp Control Relays in Junction Block 2.
Instead, somewhere along the bottm and top drill a small hole to help vent the headlight better. They told me they only know the wiring harness and the socket, but not the ballast??????? It's alot safer for the rest of the housing, and you can still use your hands to open it up easier. Anyone have experience with what seems like they should be simple and inexpensive Lexus repairs? On the back where it's stamped Toyota, that is a tab that opens and reveals a foam covered vent. We normally use express to do the shipment, 5-7 working days, the goods will arrive you. This is not your fathers headlamp system - it is equipped with tracking control and automatic headlamp leveling. This included the Fuel Injector Pulse Damper along with six injectors. There is a symptom chart to follow if there are no codes present, but if there are codes in the system, you could be shooting yourself in the foot trying to follow the symptom chart without first correcting any fault codes.
