My 2012 RX450H came with a detachable Lexus towball.  I'm familiar with detachable towballs, though never had a Lexus one before.  Anyway, it fitted OK and locked on.  However, now it won't come off.  The lock turns OK, but then it's impossible to rotate the knob clockwise to the removal position (step 16 of the owner's manual).  I've saturated everything in WD40 in the hope that it was just a bit seized up, but no luck.

Anyone had a similar problem and / or got any advice on how to get the thing off again?

    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
