  1. Having recently imported a 2001 Harrier, I scoured the web and the forum on the subject of language conversion, but never found any clear answers. Just to encourage anyone who may be looking for info on this, I have just successfully converted my Harrier from Japanese to English. To do so I replaced the satnav disk unit (under the floor in the trunk) with one from a 2002 RX300 (part # 86841 47030, £175.00 on E-Bay) and the mutlifunction display unit/nav screen with one from a 2002 RX300 (E-Bay £80.00). The latter was included as part of the entire center console so I was also able to swap over the Japanese buttons for English ones. I was hoping to also swap out the radio to get UK bandwidth, but the UK radio unit had two plugs on the back while the Japanese radio had three, so I failed on that. For anyone outside the UK, my (seemingly endless) research suggests that the disk unit must come out of a UK model Lexus/Toyota. Same disk unit is also used in some other Toyotas (e.g. LS430), and I think there are other earlier/later disk units that may work. Satnav worked immediately - in English - as soon as I swapped the rear disk unit, but audio features etc on the display remained in Japanese. Swapping the screen unit in the center console switched all features into English. So - it costs a few quid, but it is actually easy to do - all plugs - except the radio unit - were the same.
