Product Research


Overview: The Metra 99-8159S is a vehicle-specific installation kit for installing an aftermarket stereo into select 2004-up Lexus RX-series vehicles. Please check the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to see if this kit is recommended for your vehicle and stereo.

Climate Control Retention: In order to retain the vehicle's factory climate controls, the included 68Ω resistor should be installed between two wires on the factory harness. Installing the resistor will also retain factory navigation, if equipped. The resistor should be soldered to the factory wires and covered with heat-shrink tubing or electrical tape. The instructions for this modification can be found in the kit's installation instructions.

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
Allows the radio to fit my 2007 Lexus RX350 dash/radio location. [ Mark  Aug 08, 2019 ]
Order from before [ Kirt  Jul 11, 2019 ]
Love the fit and way it makes the system look like it is OEM. [ Clinton  Feb 17, 2019 ]
For ease of installation and to keep the "factory" look for my install. [ Perry  Dec 20, 2018 ]
Comes with the 68 ohm resistor to keep factory climate control with nav screen. Also same color and finish as the original car trim, definitely saves time and hassle when adding an aftermarket radio to an RX [ Kyle  Dec 05, 2018 ]
I will be replacing the factory stereo with one that has Bluetooth ;) [ James  Nov 26, 2018 ]
It fit my car [ REED  Oct 08, 2018 ]
Needed for installation [ Mark  Oct 05, 2018 ]
Fits my car for the radio I got. [ Carlos  Jun 13, 2018 ]
We just got my daughter this vehicle and had the head unit already so needed a clean and easy way to put her double din head unit in. [ Jason  May 07, 2018 ]
because retaining a decent look and presentation inside my wife's car is important. This kit allows me to install a new stereo yet retain a Lexus look across the dashboard. [ Gary  Apr 07, 2018 ]
Good reviews and best known brand [ B  Jan 26, 2018 ]
whelp, if you need to swap out a stereo for your Lexus, then you pretty much need this. [ Shon  Dec 22, 2017 ]
You guys did the homework to make it easy to purchase the right kit for the car and made sure it would look great and professional. [ William  Dec 13, 2017 ]
required for install and discounted with reciever purchase [ Alan  Nov 27, 2017 ]
The items will work well with my older Lexus RX350 - 2008 model. I have Sirius radio, purchased through Crutchfield, but want a product that will allow me to use my iPhone directly in the car. And, I don't want to buy a new car to get that! [ S  Nov 13, 2017 ]
Looks good [ benjamin  Oct 23, 2017 ]
Crutchfield is the "goto' for all audio.. Common knowledge. [ GREG  Aug 07, 2017 ]
Would not be able to install a new head unit without this dash kit. [ Scott  Jun 09, 2017 ]
Looks like it fits my vehicle [ Giovanni  Feb 04, 2017 ]
Recommended by expert (Peyton) [ Patrick  Jan 23, 2017 ]
Like to have an easy and clean looking install. [ Patricia  Nov 24, 2016 ]
Looks like it simplifies the installation with a clean finished look. [ Mark  Sep 08, 2016 ]
This one has been OK, not great though but doesn't mean that its the kits fault. It just has a slight angle to it that seems odd. Very happy with it though, not something that makes me want to change it. [ Jason E.  Jul 02, 2016 ]
Fits my car. [ ROBERT CRAIG  Jun 23, 2016 ]
Looking for a factory installed final appearance on the stereo upgrade [ David  May 25, 2016 ]
Stock Look Is A Must! [ Juan  Mar 20, 2016 ]
It makes it easy using the radio while I am driving. A good option. [ DARNELL  Mar 15, 2016 ]
This is the dash kit to put a radio into a Lexus RX [ Russell  Feb 03, 2016 ]

1 question already asked

I have a 2007 RX 350 and I didn't put in the resistor, when I tested it out, everything worked perfectly. Should I go back and put in the resistor or not worry about it?
