  1. Central locking intermittently forgets?

    Scared the crap out of the binmen on Friday morning
  2. Central locking intermittently forgets?

    Interesting that somebody mentions it could be the car battery - mine has gone flat a few times recently, although when it refuses to unlock the car, it still starts OK. Maybe I should treat myself to a new car battery and see if that helps... Once the alarm is reset it seems to work fine again, so I don't think it's anything physical. I'll let you know if I get anywhere with it. At the moment I'm locking the car with the door button - it's too embarrassing when the alarm goes off at work!
  3. I have an odd problem. Every few days, when I go to unlock the car with the keyfob, it doesn't work - the car doesn't seem to receive the signal. I then have to unlock it with the door lock, which sets the alarm off but relocking and unlocking again usually stops the alarm? I've tried a new battery in the keyfob, so: 1. Does anybody have an idea why it is losing sync with the keyfob? 2. If the alarm can be disabled by locking/unlocking with the key, why does unlocking it with key set it off in the first place? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
  4. Increase Auto Light Sensitivity?

    Interestingly, in the handbook, it says that the sensitivity can be adjusted by a Lexus dealer...
  5. 17" wheels - Lexus is 200

    Ah - no 5th wheel?
  6. 17" wheels - Lexus is 200

    Could be - is it just wheels, or tyres too? Ie a straight swap?
  7. 17" wheels - Lexus is 200

    Have you got a picture of them?
  8. Jack it up, take the wheel off and have a good feel around to see if anything it loose...
  9. Underbody panel nuts?

    Thanks for the suggestion - I've used a couple of flanged nuts for now. Seems to be on OK - I guess they're likely to get rusted on after a while which is probably why they used plastic ones...
  10. I noticed a nasty rubbing noise when I hit 70 this morning. Sounded like something rubbing against a tyre, but it turns out it was one of the plastic panels just in front of the exhaust had come loose at one end and was hanging down on the road. Does anybody know where I can get the nuts that hold this panel on? They are captive plastic nuts that grip onto studs on the underneath of the car.
  11. Speaker upgrade

    Anyone know if these will fit? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/221765639549?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
  12. Front mud flaps/guards

    Thanks - I'll give them a try...
  13. Does anybody know where I can get a replacement front nearside mud flap/guard from? I've always assumed they were OEM, but I guess they could be aftermarket ones. Were they an option?
  14. Cold Start

    Funny you should post this - I've noticed in the past few days that mine is doing something similar. It still starts fine, but sounds a little bit different... doesn't last a second though. Maybe it's just the weather?
  15. Glad to know I'm not alone then. I found a replacement rubber trim on eBay, but I don't think I'll bother... thanks for the replies!
