2013 Lexus Questions and Answers


  • Tire Chain Recommendation for a 2013 Lexus RX 450h With Tire Size P235/55R19
  • Yes, the Glacier Chains Cable Snow Tire Chains, # PW1046, will fit the P235/55R19 tires on your 2013 Lexus RX 450h. I have attached a link to all of the tire chains that we carry that will fit your tire size. It is important that you check your owners manual on the use of tire chains. Some manufacturers place restrictions on the use of tire chains. If you would like a tire chain with better performance at an economical price, I would recommend looking at the Glacier Square-Link Tire...

  • Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Compatibility With Backup Camera And Sensors
  • The Thule Vertex 2 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting # TH9028XT is a nice bike rack that has the integrated cable lock, Hold Fast cradles with grooves for your cables and anti-sway cages to protect your bikes and your vehicle. The mast is really well designed with the folding and tilt features with quick-release levers. This mast will obstruct a portion of your view as will the bikes when installed on your 2013 Lexus RX 350. The backup sensors will not be an issue without bikes,...

  • Best Place to Mount Hopkins Graduated RV Levels on Trailer
  • There is no specific location where you mount the Hopkins Graduated RV Levels, # HM08525. Personally I would consider where I would be standing as I worked to make the RV or trailer level and I would place the levels in the most convenient place for that process.

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2013 Lexus GX 460
  • We do have a nice selection of roof racks that will fit your 2013 Lexus GX 460 if it features flush mounted rails that run front to back, however there is not a round bar system available that is confirmed to fit. Thule does not offer a system of any crossbar style for your particular vehicle. For an economic roof rack system that is confirmed to fit, I recommend taking a look at the Inno Square Roof Rack. This system consists of # INB127 for the two 50 inch long Square Crossbars, #...

  • Trunk Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Lexus RX 350
  • I would recommend the Thule Raceway 2 Bike Rack # TH9001PRO. 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...

  • Brake Controller Port Location 2013 Lexus LX 570
  • The port you will want to plug your brake controller wiring adapter # 3040-P into will be located under the dash on the left side, behind the fuel and hood latch levers. The brake controller plug will need to be removed from its port, and connected with the wiring harness. I have attached some pictures from a customer in regards to the location of the brake controller port in your 2013 Lexus LX 570. If you cannot find the harness, and the dealership technicians cannot find the harness,...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Lexus RX350 F Sport
  • Yes, we checked with Curt and their trailer hitch part # C13143 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 2013 Lexus RX 350 F Sport so it would be a great option for you. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2013 Lexus RX 350
  • We have everything you need to tow a trailer with your 2013 Lexus RX 350. Starting with the trailer hitch, I recommend the Curt Class III Receiver Hitch # C13143. This is an excellent Class III hitch that will provide a 2 inch receiver opening and has a towing weight capacity of 4,000 pounds. You will also want to check the towing capacity of your vehicle, as this will likely be your limiting factor. This information should be listed in your copy of the owner's manual. This hitch is...

  • 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 Fits for 2013 Lexus GS-350 F-Sport Model

  • Recommended Hitch Lock for Kuat Beta 2 Bike Rack
  • Kuat offers two different hitch locks, the # KUATLOCK for the # B202-114 Beta that's designed for the 1-1/4 inch receiver and the # H101 lock that's designed for the # B202-2 Beta rack that's designed for the 2 inch receiver. If the correct lock is used for the correct rack, no alterations of any kind will be necessary (we don't recommend altering the rack in any way, as it will compromise your warranty protection.)

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Carrier for a 2015 Lexus RX 350
  • If the spoiler at the top of the rear hatch on your 2015 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 I recommend the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top rack # HRF2. This rack has an additional...

  • Towing Mirror Recommendation for a 2013 Lexus GX 460
  • For your 2013 Lexus GX 460 I recommend K-Source Universal Dual Lens Towing Mirrors - Clip On - Pair Item # KS3990. Both mirrors in this set feature flat glass for the larger mirror and convex glass on the smaller, outer mirrors. They are a universal fit item and I have included a link to a video review of them for you.

  • 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...

  • Compatibility of Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack with 2013 Lexus CT 200h
  • One of the most important things to consider when choosing a bike rack is the bumper clearance. Because there is not a set standard of how far back the receiver is recessed under the vehicle, the distance between the hitch pin hole in the receiver and the furthest rearward point of the vehicle bumper needs to be known so a rack with a long enough shank can be chosen. If you choose a rack whose shank is too short, the upright portion or wheel tray of the rack will contact the bumper before...

  • 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....

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2013 Lexus CT 200h
  • We have several trunk mount bike rack options for the 2013 Lexus CT 200h. I have included a link to them for you to view. The least expensive 2 bike rack is the Thule Passage 2, # TH910XT. And the least expensive 3 bike rack is the Thule Passage 3, # TH911XT. I have included some informational links on these bike racks for you to view. If you will be carrying womens, childrens, or alternative frame bikes, I recommend using the bike adapter bar, # TH982XT for greater ground clearance...

  • Best Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Lexus RX 350
  • All of the hitches available for your 2013 Lexus RX 350 are pretty similar. The biggest difference is that the Curt Hitch part # C13143 can fit the F Sport and non-F Sport models. Because of that I would recommend the Curt hitch. The trailer wiring available for your vehicle, part # 56083, is only available for the models of the vehicle that have the factory tow package. Without the factory tow package use # 118255. I attached videos for you to check out as well.

  • 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.

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Lexus GX 460
  • Yes, I checked with Curt and the Curt trailer hitch part # C13043 that you referenced is confirmed to fit a 2013 Lexus GX460. The only option for trailer wiring is the dealer option that you guys probably sell. For ball mounts I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and a carrying bag.

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle Device For 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • The MaxxTow Anti-Rattle Clamp for 2" Trailer Hitch Receivers - 2 Bolt # MT70258 fits right onto the flared surround you mentioned on the Curt Hitch Receiver attached to your 2013 Lexus RX450H. The integrated sleeve on this adapter is a great help in stabilizing your accessories for a much quieter ride. The Pro Series Anti-Rattle Device for 2" x 2" Trailer Hitch Receivers # PS63091 utilizes one bolt that will fit behind the flared surround of your hitch. Choosing between these two...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2013 Lexus CT200h
  • Curt Trailer Hitch, # C11200, is a confirmed fit for the 2013 Lexus CT200h. You will want to check the owner's manual for your specific vehicle before adding a trailer hitch and any accessories. If you want a hitch bike rack, we have a few dozen class I-compatible racks to choose from, click the provided link to see them. To maintain the hitch warranty, Curt requires the use of a stabilization strap like part # 18050 on any non trailer load carried by the hitch. The Thule Helium Aero...

  • 2013 Lexus RX350 With OEM Roof Rack Compatibility With 2 Kayak Carrier
  • The Thule Hull-A-Port XT Kayak Carrier w/Tie-Downs - J-Style - Folding - Side Loading # TH848, will allow for one 29 inch wide kayak on a 34 inch crossbar, but not two. I called Thule to confirm fit and they said it would be too close together for two kayaks. I recommend using the Yakima BigStack Roof Mounted 2 Kayak Carrier System # Y04041. This carrier will allow you to carry 2 kayaks on your 34 inch wide crossbars on your 2013 Lexus RX350 with factory crossbars. I've attached...

  • How to Install the Replacement 2" Hitch Adapter Part # 853-7489 on a Thule Doubletrack Bike Rack
  • The small hole on the adapter part # 853-7489 that the screw part # 853-5787-02 goes into is not threaded. However, the hole on the stinger of your Thule Doubletrack Platform-Style 2 Bike Rack part # TH990XT is threaded which you can see in the attached photo.

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Lexus GS 350 Non-F Sport
  • The hitch I would recommend for your 2013 Lexus GS 350 non-F Sport is the Draw Tite Hitch part # 36535. This hitch would do great carrying a bike rack and doesn't require a stabilizer strap like the Curt hitch does. I attached a video of what a hitch will look like installed on your vehicle. Basically the very bottom of the lower bumper cover will need to be trimmed slightly to accommodate the hitch opening. The Swagman XTC2, part # S64670 is one of the most popular racks because...

  • Do the Thule Roof Racks for Raised Side Rails Damage Paint of Vehicle
  • The straps of the Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack # TH7502-TH7502 are a rubber coated steel that would not damage the paint of the raised rails on your vehicle. As long as you keep the paint and the straps clean you wouldn't have any issues at all. The rubber is soft enough that it would not hurt the painted surface of the rails.

  • 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 # ALL640595 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...

  • Recommended Replacement Thule Lock Core for Old Thule 04833 Cargo Box
  • For your old Thule cargo box 04833, I recommend the Thule One-Key System # TH512. This kit includes two lock cylinders, two keys and a Universal control key that will allow you to insert the new lock cylinder into the box. If you wanted the lock to be # THLOCKN022 to match a key you already have, you will just need the control key # 853-1251 to insert the core # THLOCKN022 into the box. If you don't have a key for this core you will need the Thule # THKEYN022 also. I have linked...

  • 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 Rhino-Rack system is a great choice. They're aero bars to keep wind noise down which is always a plus. You can get the bars in black, # RRVA118B-2, or silver, # RRVA118S-2. The legs you need are # RRSX100. For a compatible kayak carrier you can use the JayLow, # Y04073. I have linked a video review of this carrier for you.
