A friend ran into a similar problem with his 75 V8 Chevy Monza. Took it in for a tune-up and they charged over $400. The service manager explained they had to remove the engine and tranny mounts to reach the rear plugs. He payed the bill and drove away. He brought it over to get my opinion. When I first saw how tight the engine compartment was I was inclined to think it was the only way. Then several things caught my eye. First there were no witness marks on any of the bolts on the mounts. Second, there was duct tape covering four inch holes in the rear of the wheel wells with fresh black paint. He immediately got an attorney, who got him a new car out of the deal. The funny thing was, when he picked up his new 76, the wheel well holes had be cut at the factory with plastic covers instead of duct tape. My point to this long story is 'you' may be able to do the same thing to your Lexus. RScott
