2013 Lexus RX 350 Questions and Answers


  • What is the Anti-Sway Cage Extension Used For on the Thule Apex Bike Rack
  • Some bikes have frames with steep angles that may necessitate the use of the extension. In other cases there may be something attached to the frame that would block the anti-sway cradle unless the extension is used. It is situational and it depends on so many factors of whether you would use the extension or not. The extension would install to the bottom of the cradle in place of the anti-sway cage. Then the anti-sway cage would install on the bottom of the extension as if it was the cradle.

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier Recommendations for a 2013 Lexus RX350
  • If your 2013 Lexus RX350 has the side rails that run front to back then the Thule AeroBlade Edge system # TH7502-TH7502 is going to be the best rack. The bars are among the quietest on the market and you can't be the look of this system. For a compatible kayak carrier you can use the Hull-A-Port Pro, # TH835PRO. I have linked a video review of this carrier for you. If the vehicle does not have the side rails and you have just a sunroof and not the panoramic glass roof then you can still...

  • Will a Loaded Trunk Mount Bike Rack Block Backup Camera on a 2013 Lexus RX 350
  • It depends on where the backup camera is located on your 2013 Lexus RX 350. However it is likely that the bikes will block at least part of the view normally shown by the camera. This is going to be the case with any trunk mount or hitch mounted bike rack. To avoid blocking the camera you would need to carry the bikes on the roof. Since your RX 350 has that spoiler of trim piece at the top of the rear hatch I actually recommend going with the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top rack # HRF2....

  • Trailer Hitch For 2013 Lexus RX 350
  • If your 2013 Lexus RX 350 is not the F Sport model we actually have 3 hitches available to choose from. All 3 hitches have the same weight and towing capacity, are Class lll hitches, and all have 2 inch receiver openings. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # C13143 is made in the USA, so if that is something you feel is important, would be the hitch I recommend. The other hitches we offer are the Hidden Hitch, part # 87569, and the Draw-Tite hitch, part # 75676. For all of the hitches,...

  • Trailer Hitch And Wiring For 2013 Lexus RX 350
  • For your 2013 Lexus RX 350, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C13143. This is a Class lll hitch and has a 2 inch receiver opening. The ball mount and ball kit i recommend is the etrailer kit, part # 989900. This kit comes with 2 ball mounts, a 1-7/8 inch ball, a 2 inch ball, the pin and clip and a handy bag. The attached product review video explains what is included in this kit. For a locking hitch pin I recommend the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, part # 7683. I have attached...

  • Will Thule Helium Aero Tilting 2 Bike Rack # TH9042 Allow Hatch Access With Bikes Loaded
  • The Thule Helium Aero Tilting 2 Bike Rack # TH9042 is designed to enable rear cargo hatch access with the rack and loaded bikes in place. The precise fit on any given vehicle will vary slightly by the type of bike loaded; for example, some specialty bikes such as mountain bikes or beach cruisers that have very wide handlebars may make for a tighter fit. But I checked with Thule and this carrier is indeed listed as a confirmed fit for your 2013 Lexus RX 350. I have linked a video showing...

  • Recommendation for Roof Rack Crossbars and Kayak Carrier on 2013 Lexus RX 350
  • I would personally recommend going with the Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack, # TH7502-TH7502, for your 2013 Lexus RX 350. This rack is super quiet and mounts directly to your vehicle's factory side rails. The AeroBlades are one of the quietest bars currently on the market. Adding the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders, # TH544, to the roof rack will help to deter theft. The SportRack Kayak Carrier, # SR5323, can be used with the AeroBlade rack to transport your kayaks. This carrier...

  • Will Hollywood Racks # HRF2 Fit 2012 Lexus RX350 With a Spoiler and Carry Ladies Step Through Bike
  • Yes the Hollywood Racks Over the Top 2 bike Carrier # HRF2 bike rack will fit a 2012 Lexus RX350 with a rear spoiler. If you use the Hollywood Racks Adapter Bar # HRBA-PRO, then you would be able to carry your women's step through type of bike on this bike rack. There are several different attachment styles that you can use depending on how your RX350 is equipped. You can use vehicle attachment hooks, the D-Ring attachment straps for roof racks and side rails, or the hatch anchor attachment...

  • Recommended Bike Rack to Carry Electra Townie on 2013 Lexus RX350
  • Because the Highland SportWing bike rack carries bikes by the wheels, it would be an excellent choice for bikes with oddly-shaped frames like the Electra Townie you mention. The rack will fit both 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch receivers. If your RX350 does not already have a hitch, you will need to install one. If your RX350 is a F Sport model, use # C13143. If it is not an F Sport model, you can use the Draw-Tite # 75676. To see a product demonstration video for the SportWing bike rack,...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack for a 2013 Lexus RX350
  • For your 2013 Lexus RX350 with rear spoiler, I recommend the Hollywood Racks Over-The-Top Rack, # HRF2. This rack has an upper arm piece that moves the straps up and over the spoiler so they do not make contact with the spoiler. This means that the spoiler will not have to carry any weight. It is currently only available in a 2-bike version. I have included a link to a video review of this rack for you.

  • Lighter Platform Bike Carrier Recommendation For 2013 Lexus RX350 With Shorter Shank Rise
  • We do offer a couple of bike carriers that may work for your 2013 Lexus RX350. I would recommend platform racks because they require less distance that the bikes need to be lifted off the ground. The first carrier I would recommend is the Swagman XTC-2 - 2 Bike Platform Carrier, part # S64670. This carrier works with both 1-1/4 and 2 inch hitch receivers. This carrier weighs approximately 31 lbs, and has a 3 inch shank rise. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest...

  • Will Curt Hitch # C13143 Interfere with Electronics on a 2013 Lexus RX 350 When Installed
  • The Curt Hitch # C13143 that you referenced will fit your 2013 Lexus RX350.The picture shows what the hitch will look like on the back of your vehicle - the receiver opening is about flush with the bumper. In the installation instructions that are attached, step 12 notes that if you do not have the F-Sport model your tow loops can be re-installed. If you do have the F-sport model then the tow loops cannot be re-installed. The installation will not interfere with your electronics of...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2013 Lexus RX 350
  • If the spoiler at the top of the rear hatch on your 2013 Lexus RX 350 is metal and integrated into the hatch (meaning it is not a separate plastic piece) then you can use a trunk mount bike rack on the vehicle. The top hooks can be difficult to put into place but what works for me is to work the hooks in at the corner of the hatch then slide them over into position. If the spoiler is a separate piece then it is not recommended to use a trunk mount trailer hitch because the spoiler is...

  • Trunk Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Lexus RX 350
  • I would recommend the Thule Raceway 2 Bike Rack # TH9001. This rack is one of the best trunk mounted bike racks on the market because of how easy it is to install/uninstall, how light it is and because it has rubber coated steel cables instead of nylon straps like other trunk mounted racks. I also checked with Thule and this rack is confirmed to fit your vehicle. Since you plan on carrying womens framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a...

  • Locating the Reverse Light Wire on a 2013 Lexus RX350 for a 4 to 5-Way Adapter
  • The easiest place to locate a reverse light wire on any vehicle is directly behind the reverse light itself. If that is not easily accessible then there will be a wiring harness that leads to the tail lights that may also contain the reverse light wire. You will need a circuit tester like # 3808 if you do not have one. Test the wires in the harness leading to the tail lights to determine if any of them are the reverse light and tap in there. Another option is to find the reverse light...

  • How Does the Missouri Tigers Hitch Cover Secure to a Trailer Hitch on a 2013 Lexus RX 350
  • The Missouri Tigers hitch cover, # AH-10190, will fit the 2 inch hitch on your 2013 Lexus RX 350. The hitch cover uses rigid small gauge metal brackets, like in the picture I have included, to hold the cover in by friction. A hitch pin is recommended. I do recommend a locking hitch pin, like # 7683, to secure the cover and deter theft.
