06 Lexus RX350 rear trunk auxiliary compartment catches

75

Asked by Nov 19, 2013 at 02:26 AM about the 2007 Lexus RX 350 AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The two rear trunk auxiliary compartment catches are stuck. I think some small sand or dust particles may have jammed them. Can I remove them for service or free them up?

I found the answer the easy way! There are three components to each catch, two plastic and one spring. Two covers need to be removed to get to them, then care taken to slip them out. Curtain rod spray lubricant was used to free them after blowing air then a vacuum. Two little lugs on the slide component so probably best done by a Lexus authorized repairer. That is what I did and the problem is solved. In Australia my new Lexus will cost $100,000 (twice yours in the USA) but authorized repairers here do give outstanding service, far better than Ford and GM. I love this site. I had many US friends in Vietnam during my tour there, great fellows and good mates. Lost touch now but Merry Christmas to you all. I hold your nation in high regard and wish it and you well.
