    I have a "57 plate RX350, and the direction air flow only blows out the dash board air vents, pressing the buttons for the air to flow onto the window screen does not allow it to blow onto the window screen, same as the foot vent it still, only blows out of the dash, any clue as to which solenoid or even a fuse going please ????.
  2. Hi I have a 2006 Lexus IS250 and I am confident that the air con is blocked as I keep getting water on the rear floor carpets. Lexus dealer wants £80.00 to check if that is the fault. How can this be checked and could i do it myself?
  3. Hi Guys, I have a 2007 IS220d. Its been a year since I last used my heater to heat rather than just cool or air con, and I cant remember how it 'should' function? It doesnt seem to blow warm air until the car has been running for 20 mins or so and the engine temp is half way on the gauge, until then its blowing cold despite being set to 23 degrees on the control, with or without air con switched on. Is this correct behavior? cheers.
  4. A while ago my air con system stop working. Some white misty gas appeared to come through the centre vents into the passenger cabin. That lasted for about 5 mins, off and on, whilst travelling down the motorway. From then, the air con has not blown cold at all. It just replicates the air temp outside and the fans blow hard when hot outside as desired temp in the cabin is not being attained. More recently, some small pieces of grey foam material (max. 0.5cm squared and similar texture to a kitchen sponge in density) started to be blow through the centre vents of the ventilation system into the cabin; the same place the white mist emanated from originally. I had a Toyota garage check the air con system and they gave it a clean bill of health saying that the compressor was functioning fine and had been tested and that the system had been dye-tested to check for any leaks, of which they found none to my surprise. They re-gassed the system and sent me on my way but it quite quickly became apparent that the system was still not blowing any colder than the air temp outside. I recently took my car to a mechanic friend and he tested for any gas in the system by undoing the cap on the refiller and touching it with a key to see if any sprayed out the top but there appears to be no gas left in the system in spite of Toyota having re-gassed the system AND apparently giving it a 'no leak' diagnosis. I have had to replace the original condenser before when the air con stopped working so my questions to the knowledgable forum readers are these: 1. Is it likely, given the above, that the white gas leaking out was in fact the air con gas during a fatal parts blow-out , either of pipework or condenser? 2. Has anyone had the incident I described with the foam pieces coming through the centre vents before after the air con failed? 3. Could the bits of foam be some form of lining/seal for the air con pipework or is it something unrelated? 4. Is the condenser the most likely problem now given the above information? 5. Does anyone know how long it should take a good mechanic, in hours, to replace the condenser please? Many thanks too all that reply in advance. Antony.
  5. Does anyone get that odd ticking noise from the dash ( air vents ), when the air con is on - especially when it's directed to the main vents? It's like a ticking or stepper motor?
  6. Just had my air con serviced - took about an 1 1/4 hours. Fascinating to watch how it's done. And now feel ready for the Summer. ( Richard Bell from AutoAirCon did it - really pleased with his time keeping, attitude and price )
