Lexus LS400 - Steering Column Repair
I repaired a steering column on 1997 Lexus LS400. The column would not go
down when I put in the key, or when I pushed down on the switch. All I
would hear was a sound of a striped gear. Instead of paying Lexus the $600
for the part, I just repaired the gear myself. This is a very simple fix,
and will take you only 20 - 30 minutes.
8mm and 10mm socket and ratchet
Phillips head screw driver
some type of hook or hanger to pull the gear out
standard Zip-Tie to use as a spacer...or a water hose washer.
I hope you enjoy this video and it solves your problem with little cost and
effort. If you want to thank me, please look at my photography

My Lexus LS400's Exhaust (Part II)
This is after I got the piping done from the cats back. It's 2.25", and an
X-pipe coming soon.
Car doesn't sound nearly as raspy as that in person, but is much louder and
It's also lowered on Tanabe DF210 springs/Tokico HP struts, and riding 18"
SSR A-Dish wheels.
1992 Lexus LS400 Reving V8
Airbox mod, stock filter, stock Exhaust. Loud when you want it too be, quiet
when conservative. 317, 000 km with the 1UZFE toyota engine, at 250 hp, 260
torque. 0-60 is 7.9 seconds new at least, not bad for a 3800 pound car.
Lexus LS400 Custom Exhaust
This is my 1990 Lexus LS400. It has a custom 2.25" Exhaust with magnaflow mufflers. I got rid of 2
of the 4 cats. You can see my build at cardomain.com.
Lexus LFA Clears It's Throat, And Gets BUSTED...
Well you wanted more of the Lexus LFA, I was asked by many if I could get
video of the LFA's launch control, more reving, and faster driving, so that's what we did. Got
it to 168MPH!
We also paid for it also by getting pulled over and slapped with a pretty
hefty ticket. But.. It still turned out to be a fun day. Think the driver
will get the ticket lowered in court?
Elattrache Photography was also there for the filming and he got some
AMAZING photos of the LFA.
I highly recommend you check out his photos at
