Swap 2003 melting dash with 2001 plastic - which part #?

I have a 2003 IS300 with a tan interior and I am planning on swapping out the entire dashboard and center console with that of a 2001 because it's melting, and the stuff that's melting is most likely toxic. I know it's a multitude of parts that need to be changed but getting the trim #'s right is going to be everything.

The problem is that there are multiple part numbers and trim ID's... is there anyone who can provide part numbers and ideally some example pictures? As far as I know there's an all-black version, and a grey/bronze version.

-55301-53040-C0 TYPE C:REFER TO ILLUSTRATION, IVORY, TRIM0* 1 $465.23
-55301-53040-C1 TYPE A:REFER TO ILLUSTRATION, BLACK, TRIM0*, 2* 1 $465.23
-55301-53091-C0 TYPE C:REFER TO ILLUSTRATION, BLACK, TRIM0* 1 $509.12
-55301-53091-C1 TYPE B:REFER TO ILLUSTRATION, BLACK, TRIM2* 1 $509.12


Here's the link to Sewell's parts page:
2001 IS300: OEM Body (INSTRUMENT PANEL) Replacement Parts

thanks in advance!

I was just about to post this question. Have you ordered one?

I think 55301-53040-C1 is the 01 dash (says model 01-02) but I'm not sure.

I wonder if they've fixed the problem for the new replacement inventory? I'd like to buy a new 02+ dash for my IS but not if it's going to have the same melting finish.

I have not ordered, but I did get a quote and I will ask about it - and also ensure I have an "out" just in case it comes in rubberized.

I checked with the dealer and for the tan interior 40-C0 is the proper part number. If you look at the Sewell site, it is also the only part number that is exclusive to the 01, so that helps.

Will post when I receive the part!

I'd say type A is definitely the 01 dash, black/grey/black

Has anybody confirm the part numbers yet? I'm going to be placing a order for a new dash this week before Sewell closes their website next month and wanted to order a 2001 dash for my IS300.

From the diagrams I looked at these look like the part number for the black/gray 2001 dash, cluster garnish and center console

5881153020C1
CONSOLE BOX, BLACK/GRAY, TRIM0#, 2#

5530153040C1
INSTRUMENT PANEL SUB-ASSEMBLY, TYPE A: SEE ILLUSTRATION, BL ACK, TRIM0#, 2#

5540453010B0
INSTRUMENT CLUSTER FINISH PANEL SUB-ASSEMBLY, GRAY, TRIM0#, 2#


These look like the part numbers for the black 02-05 dash, cluster garnish and center console

5881153020C2
CONSOLE BOX, BLACK/BLACK, TRIM0#

5530153091C1
INSTRUMENT PANEL SUB-ASSEMBLY, TYPE B: SEE ILLUSTRATION, BL ACK, TRIM2#

5540453010C0
INSTRUMENT CLUSTER FINISH PANEL SUB-ASSEMBLY, BLACK, TRIM0#

Has anyone actually ordered a 2001 dash and gotten one back without rubber on it? I am just a bit worried that Toyota's part system has substitute part numbers and are subbing in the 2002+ dash for the 2001. I'm trying to get verification from Lexus that indeed, these part numbers definitely have no rubber coating.

I think the part 5530153040C1 is the dash without the soft touch material. It was the only part number specific to the 2001 model, and mm71522 confirmed it. I was wondering which dash didn't have it too which is why I asked 3 posts above. I also emailed sewell about it two days ago but haven't gotten a reply yet.

You could always order the part at your local dealer and if it's the wrong one you can return it 👍.

Don't forget to order the center console as well, or you'll be mismatched.

Wanted to renew this thread. Looking to buy new dash from a dealer but wanted to hear from those of you that have bought the 2002+ dashboards in the last couple of years. Do they still have the rubber coating or do you have to order the 2001 in order to avoid that coating/melting dash?

Thanks!
