Air vents leaking in air inside cabin RX400H

Recommended Posts

Hi guys please try to help me out here, recently bought a rx400h in excellent condition, but just few days ago something went wrong, all the road noise enters the cabin, even if am parked and a car was to drive pass it sounds like a window is slightly open when its not, ive checked all the seals and everything looks fine.

What ive noticed is when driving, the outside air is hitting my face from all the front centre air vents even if its switched off, I believe that could be the cause for the road noise entering the cabin.

Today it was a bit windy, so i went inside my car, had the ignition off just sitting inside trying to figure out the cause, and i put my hands right in front of the vents, and all i feel was the wind outside hitting my hands.

Has anybody experienced such issues or any advice on this?

Hope that is the cause, booked my car with lexus dealership in 2 weeks time, really hope its just a missing pollen filter and nothing too major. Thanks anyways, will update with the outcome

Problem solved, it was the re-circulate button turned off, keeping it switched on prevents outside air coming in through the vents

    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
