Thank you my friend. I hope you're doing well. I don't know about work - i'm just documenting whatever i get done to my car to keep track of the $ spent

I'm at 31k miles now and i think the car is broken in now. it's super smooth depending on the road.

only issue is that the driver side door no longer locks / unlocks with the key fob. all other doors lock. anyone have an idea what this could be...? i am now manually locking the car with the key...

I wasn't able to find a hitch for my RS 8.0. Seems the body kit precludes me from using any options out there.

that sucks that you were not able to use/install a hitch... any chance of you finding a replacement bumber you can hack up to have a hitch fit...? is this too much effort?

happy new year to all. at almost 5 years of ownership (TIME FLIES!!!!) but only at 32k miles now and the car is purring just fine. it's been cold lately so i added more air in the tires to the tpms sensor light would shut off ;)

still have the problem that the automatic door unlocker on the door does not work. when i get to the dealer for the next oil change, i'll have them look at it. other than that, car is perfecto.

Wow! Great thread. Nice to see that you have had no issues in 5 years even if your mileage is pretty low. How often do you drive?

Hey man, i appreciate you chiming in. I'm just using this thread to document whatever is going on with my xb that i love

for the first couple of years i owned the car, i did not drive often at all. now i am driving much more but it's still only a few miles per weekday and more on weekends. i'd say im averaging maybe 8k miles a year or so.

it's officially 5 years since i've owned the box and im at 34,000 miles

still loving the drive, still holding up without any serious issues.

i currently have 2 problems - both driver and passenger front doors no longer unlock using the key fob. i am due for an oil change in a couple of months and i will have the dealer look at this. at first it was just the driver side that stopped locking/unlocking but now it's the front passenger door too. it is getting a bit annoying to unlock the car using the key like some sort of caveman haha

As I mentioned in my previous post, I had an issue with both my front door locks. Both driver and passenger door locks would not open with the key fob or the buttons on the doors. I was not sure what was causing this.

So then by chance, I found a guy on YouTube that had a similar problem on his 2014 xB. He posted 2 videos on how to fix the problem yourself buying the motors that had gone bad - about $6.50 for each motor.

So I said why not give it a shot. Thankfully, this was the problem, the motors had gone bad.

I want to give a huge thank you to Mark Singleton on YouTube for posting his video on taking the doors apart. Thanks to him, I saved hundreds of dollars by doing this job myself.

For others that may come across this post via Google, this applies to all Gen2 xB's I believe.

The two videos on how to fix your door lock problems are here:

video 1:

video 2:

This is the part that you need to buy in order to fix your automatic door locks:

"10mm-Flat-Shaft-FC-280PC-22125-Door-Lock-Motor-Repair-Actuator-Toyota-Lexus-D"
https://www.ebay.com/itm/10mm-Flat-S...=1669577794001

This is what the motor looks like. This is the actual part that went bad/burned out/stopped working.




Lastly, you need a few Philips screw drivers, a Torx size 30 tool and a 10mm socket. These will help you do the whole job.

I hope this helps you guys out and saves you a ton of $.
