  1. Can’t remember which fuse I used as a feed but it was one for the IGN-ECU which was live only when the ignition was on. If you look at some the screws for an Earth, there are ones that go thru plastic fittings but do screw thru into metal
  2. Wing mirrors stopped working

    Figured out why the wing mirrors won’t fold in....It because they’re door mirrors ...
  3. Toyota oil is fine as long as the grade is correct. 0W-20 seems to be the preferred grade for the engine.
  4. NX side-steps

    Nice wheels, they go well with the grey..
  5. Door edge protectors are simple to fit, they come with instructions for the position and all you need is a rubber/plastic hammer. Fitted them on both my IS and NX.
  6. Flasher adjustment

    Couldn’t figure it out so had the dealer do it at service time..
  7. Rear Screen Demister

    Yup, they’re antennas.
  8. When is a Sale not a sale ?? When it’s a SAIL ..🤪
  9. Side Protectors

    I also fitted door edge protectors, came colour codes and you just tap them on with a rubber mallet. One pic of my NX and one of the door edges from my IS.
  10. Side Protectors

    Done it on mine as soon as it arrived, couple of tins from Halfords made to the correct colour, primer and clear coat. As you say, it breaks up the slab sides. I also done the same with my IS300h, but that time sourced them ready painted from the U.S.
  11. The large panel comes out, it's a bit tricky due to its location and you need to be agile to see into the fuse box.
  12. It's the panel just above the passengers feet, you can unclip it at the back edge then slide it backwards a bit to remove it completely after disconnecting the footwell lamp. There isn't much room in that area, but you should be able to tap into the correct feeds, on all the time and on with ignition if you're using something like the power magic pro.
  13. IS300h cvt gearbox

    Electricity produced by the engine and from the battery powers the motor the turns the wheels. Simplified explanation from a numpty..
  14. All I got was a poxy leatherette one from Lexus, but I managed to snaffle a nice Mercedes USB stick from my daughter.
  15. Had it done on three cars, Gyeon and Koche Chemie both of which are very good. Also, I would recommend Gtechniq glass treatment, lasts more than 1 year, but is easy to apply and reapply. At anything above 40mph the water just streams off the windscreen and you hardly need the wipers. Whatever you do, don't bother with Supagard, it's pants and just a commission earner for salesmen.
