Asked by Mar 08, 2013 at 01:45 PM about the 2003 Lexus ES 300 FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It sounds like some scratching or boiling water or rain dropping on a roof. It is a very wierd sound
and i don't even have to start the engine for it to sound. Also, its not constantly there. It stops and
comes back on. I don't know what it is.

check in the trunk you may be able to access the bulb from the bottom, if not you will have to remove the housing around it. as for the noise i wouldnt be able to help you there.

Thank you kbro.


I've changed mine, and if memory serves me correct. You do it from the back-seat. It's not easy but the cover does come off and you can change it. Buy the bulb 1st so you know what your up against..good luck. It's not that hard.
