All the bottom bolts come out quite easily. The starter bolts + the 2 Bolts on top of the Bell Housing tend to be a pain in the ass.

I Usually unbolt the engine from the mounts and lift it a bit. Gives me a little bit of room to wiggle a Flex Socket in with a super long extension onto the bolt.

Anyone happen to still have the pics? Seems like it was a great guide when they were still up.

IS 300 2003 model Please help.
Using an old key I can program the key so it starts, but have tried over a dozen times and can not get the remote keyless entry to program, the module in the keyless entry is s brand new one less than a month old and is genuine Lexus not some Chinese aftermarket one off eBay cost me $80 Australian, I want to have 2 masters and my valet key just for piece of mind, how do I tell if thew previous owner had the max/too many remotes programmed and how do I fix it?

Thanks in advance.....
