  1. "Rubber Brake Pipes". Do you mean the flexible brake pipes? Take your old ones to your local motor accessory shop/motor factor and they will match them up from their stock catalogue at a much lower price than OEM/Lexus and just as good.
  2. Here are two pics of S/C motors.
  3. I posted pictures of this a while ago. Yes, 2 separate motors and the in/out one can be turned with a 10mm spanner on the square section of the threaded part.
  4. I put second hand used GS300 struts on my MK 3 LS400 which are about 1" shorter but did the job. If I remember rightly there was more of them and cheaper on ebay.
  5. Lexus VSC.pdf Hope this PDF opens. I had the same bother when an LPG op plugged his laptop into my MK2 GS300 and Tigerfish, on the GS300/430 forum sent me this. You have to short pin numbers Ts14 and CG4 on the OBD socket with a paper clip. 1. Igition OFF 2. Bridge pins 14 and 4 3. Igition on (DO NOT START ENGINE) 4. Leave on for 30 seconds 5. Igition off. 6. Remove bridge 7. Check that lights are now extinquished. PS.....At Stage 3 and 4 the VSC lights will flash rapidly.
  6. On my "02" LS430 I placed a thin sheet of modellers plastic sheet over the bumper and wiggled the light unit over this and it came out without any damage and went in the same way. The plastic sheet is only about 1/16" thick. Don't know of any changes in shape from 02 to 04 to prevent this working on yours. Hope it helps.
  7. Registered on 5/6/2000 so one of the last LS 400's with electric folding mirrors which were fitted as standard on later "V" reg cars.
  8. It may be the rubber mountings on the air pump. It's been known for them to fail through vibration. Is there a fuse for the air pump, if so take it out and see if the noise does.
  9. You could put a set of these on. They're a 17" Lexus option made by OZ.
  10. There's an LS400 on ebay for sale for spares with DHP wheels. Item No. 322370793882 in Essex
  11. Riskegp. Those wheel inserts are probably off an early model. Pictured below are DHP centre caps and are much smaller about 60mm in dia. I have 4 of these so will measure them for you for future reference. There are differences in the wheel nuts as pictured below but not sure if its LS400 and/or GS300. Maybe 17mm and 19mm. I may have some of these in me garage so will look tomorrow. Hope this helps.
  12. Maybe this can help you in your choice. Here is my old GS300 mk2 with 17" DHP wheels on the front and 17" GS optional wheels (as opposed to the 5 spoke standard wheels on this model) on the back. The optional wheels are made by OZ and seem to be more durable against corrosion and scabs than OEM .
  13. I don't have the 430 now so cant have a look for you but I think The-Acre is right. There are 2 screws are in the back of the steering wheel (is there one under neath sunken in the shroud?) and you need to turn the wheel to access them and the shroud unclips with a bit of persuasion
  14. This shows a 2001 LS430. The LS400's use a different motor and set up. I posted these a while ago to show how to manually adjust the in and out movement. Remove the trim under the steering column area and adjust to suit using a 10mm open end spanner on the square at the bottom of the threaded part. That's a spanner!!! diagnosic equipment needed. hooray. I think I may still have the motor which I opened up to satisfy my curiosity which just baffled me on how it works. Hope this helps.
  15. Premium Choice of Fort Dunlop, B24 9FD 0121 749 8901 insured my 1999 Legend on agreed value £1000, 3000 miles for £220 FComp. I sold the Legend this week.
