This is one of the first after market LCD available for the Lexus SC400 from 1992 to 1996. This is one of the most common problems with the Lexus cars. Now for the first time you can get this replacement for a quarter of the price. Comparing the LS400 LCD vs SC400 LCD replacement, the SC400 is slightly harder, but not impossible for an average person with decent soldering skills.
First thing you need to do is to remove the LCD unit from your car. Once the LCD unit is removed you disconnect the face/head from the body. There are two screws and four plastic snap locks. Un-screw the units and carefully push into the plastic locks to separate the two units. Once the head and body is apart, you can disconnect two major set of wires. There are four screws you need to take out in order for the white board to come out. Once those 4 screws come off you need a flat screw and carefully expand the plastic locks to pull out the LCD mother board. The flat screw driver pry from inside to allow the LCD mother board to come out. Before the board comes off, you need to disconnect this flat wire. This is how the unit looks like after that white piece comes off. Use a screw driver andunscrew these two little screws on each side of the board.

I have been doing most of the R&D and technical write-ups by
myself with my personal money and literally thousands of hours of my time. I have taken extra steps to
demonstrate in details how things are done. Currently I am
one of the few people doing Lexus V8 research and performance
enhancement. This effort comes from my personal love for
this wonderful engine. Most of the modifications are from
trial and error. There's no cookbook for 1UZFE
mods and its unknown territory for much of supercharger performance.
The parts, labor, web development and site hosting are
100% paid from my personal hobby money. If you feel my efforts help you
in any form, please do not hesitate to donate any amount of money
to support this site. You have no idea how much I and the entire Lexus and Toyota community appreciate it!
