  12. Noise In Idle

    i know that my squeaking, sqeel is the thrust bearing as i took mine to a family garage, ive been told sort it when i can afford it. i cant say the same for you but if you can go down the lines same as me might be worth a look at. i know my repair is going to cost me a minimum of £300 inc labour costs etc. for the 220d ive read its in the regoin of £1000 just for clutch. seems to be a common problem across the forum and i wish you all the best in sorting it.
  13. Why Do We Like Our Thirsty Lexus's?

    for me it has to be the looks, the sound, the engine, reliability and more. you tell me of any one other 4 door cars from around the 2000 mark that looks as modern the lexus is200 1st gen looks? it is still to this day a very modern looking car with sleek designed lines. i love my newly swapped lexus is200 and i love the petrol station just as much!
  14. Noise In Idle

    similar sort of problem as my is200, if i even bearly touch the clutch or press the clutch in all the way the sound disappears. does it sound like a mouse sqeaking constantly? if so i would say that its the clutch thrust bearing in the clutch. i.e new clutch. however i wouldnt suggest immediately worrying if it is the clutch thrust bearing as you could probably wait until the clutch goes all together as its still gonna be the same jobs worth repair so i am waiting until i cant physically drive it. i have been told that this will not cause any problem or damage to gearbox so i am happy to wait and save until i can afford to get it repaired. see what other people think as im no expert.
  15. Coilovers Or Lowering Springs?

    sorry wrong sub forum, can someone please move to suspension and brakes sub forum. thanks
