I found the Heat Source.
Look under the Passenger's side dash.
Look to left toward console.
You'll see two Black Foam Covered Aluminum tubes. They're TOO HOT to touch where the Foam is not covering them. I think these tubes have Radiator Water running through them to the Heater Coil.
I can't think of anything else that would cause these tubes to be "SO HOT".
Unless maybe its just "Heat Conduction" from the Engine finding its way through the fire wall via these tubes??
Gonna show this to Lexus on my 5,000 mile service.
BTW, I happen to feel this for the first time today when my son was driving home from school. My console WAS NOT HOT THOUGH.
Just felt the heat on my BARE feet under the passenger's dash.
