Well I can't say this was easy, but today I replaced the spark plugs on my RX450h. It took me about six hours, having watched a You Tube video on the subject, I could have done it quicker but was having a good clean up as I reassembled  it. I think it would be a four hour job if you just got stuck in.

Can you do it again please Barry, as a proper tutorial with step-by-step instructions and lots of photos?  :laughing: 

Seriously though, good job, well done. I've always enjoyed working on my own cars and you do get a fuzzy feeling inside knowing that you've achieved something.

Blimey 4 hours if you cracking on? What makes changing the plugs take so long?

Good job done none the less. Well done.

Yeah, the RX300 was the same. I got the guy who did the LPG conversion to change the plugs at the same time, knowing that he'd be doing a lot of dismantling  :yes:

I think the Lexus dealers have it as a 3 hour job.

When I got mine done earlier this year it was by a local trusted garage, took them 3 and 1/2 hours but they only charged me for 2 hours.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
