Default RX350 Clock Spring

The horn isn't working in my wife's 2009 RX350. Toy Car Care told us it was the clock spring. How hard is it to replace? Is it just removing the airbag and then the spring assembly? And, do I need to buy a genuine Lexus part? They are all over the map! Genuine part from the dealer is $331. Some on Ebay and Amazon are in the $200 range. And some are $10-$30. ???? I suppose you get what you pay for. What is a little confusing is, the part number is 84306-0E010, and the Ebay listings show only Toyota and Scion. Why wouldn't that part number fit the Lexus? I don't want to spend $500 on something I could spend $20-$30 on and do myself.

Chris, I have yet to find (other than the center caps) a Lexus specific part on my 99 LX470 - all the parts I have purchased are Toyota part numbers and come in Toyota parts bags. Pretty much every 100 series Land Cruiser DIY that I have seen on the internet has the same parts, in the same location as my LX. I don't know how easy the clock spring job is, but based upon its location - it should be as straight forward as you describe.

I've followed this guy's DIYs for Solara and he is very good. Take a look at his video.

Have you called the dealer by chance? On the Tacoma the spiral cable/clock spring was involved with a recall (damage to it may cause the airbag not to deploy) and they replaced them for free, at least it was on my truck.

I found a Youtube video last night that makes it look fairly easy. It's more the cost of the OEM part. No recall, unfortunately, Dave.

Thanks, guys.
