  1. Hi, I have a 2007 IS 250 II aut and I think that the original brakes are really not up to the job so I was thinking about upgrading them. Maybe put on the is350s 4 piston caliper and an original size drilled/slotted rotor because I would like to stay on the 17" tires. What do you think? Will the 350s caliper fit the original size rotor and a 17" wheel? Have any other suggestions? Thanks..
  2. Hi, Could anyone recommend a good brake caliper painting service in London, as my wheel hubs are really rusty now. Or if anyone in the forum who does this service. And what would be the cost for 4 wheels. I found a few but they were not located in London. Cheers
  3. Dear All, I have some parts available for anyone who is willing to collect until the end of this week from KT6 7NL (Surbiton, South-West London, ideally between 8:00 - 17:00 but I am flexible to help if that is necessary). Those came off from a 2006 IS 250, and those are free of charge: - 4 x 17" alloy set, not in a very great shape (peeling etc.) but those are refurbishable, - Both front calipers in parts, - Also both rear calipers, but those are badly squeezed, - Automatic carpet mat set, the driver one is worn, the other ones are in good condition. Kind regards Gabor Pinter 07943 382577 (Please prefer messages.)
  4. Hi, this is my first post. I've recently bought a 2006 is 220d and I need to replace the rear n/s caliper and carrier. The caliper that is currently fitted has the number: 43 L 10, on it, I've found a replacement for the same model of car which has the number: 45 L 10 on it. Does anyone know if this will be a compatible replacement? I've attached an image of the new part.
  5. Dear fellow owners, I am just replacing all the four calipers on my IS250 (the new ones are still in the box), and I was wondering on getting them laquered to protect those from rust. Ideally I would't paint them so I am planning to use a clear coat only. I found these products on Amazon, would you think those would work on their own, without a coloured primer? Thanks for your time.
  6. Dear fellow owners, I am in the process of replacing the brake calipers on a '06 IS250 as I wanted to get rid of the seizing-recall-affected parts. After checking numerous forum entries, TS bulletins, I got confused about the correct greases to be used. i would prefer using Lexus/Toyota greases. This is what I found: 1, For lubricating the slider pins, seals etc.: - Toyota 08887-01206 / 08887-83010 Rubber Grease (this has been mentioned in a lot of documents, reviews and also in the early manual) OR - Toyota 00289-1WG00 White Grease (Technical Support Bulletin of the recall) 2, To use as an anti-squeal grease on the shims and as lubricant on the contacting surfaces between the pad and the pad support plates.: - Toyota 08887-80609 Brake Caliper Grease (Toyota Ireland) Is it safe to assume that this combination will work fine? Thank you for your help in advance.
  7. I'll be needing to change my brakes soon as I get a wobble in the steering wheel when braking at speed, must be warped front discs. Was wondering if the IS300 front calipers take a larger disc than the is200? It would make sense for a 3L to have larger brakes than the 2L but on ebay I see discs for is200/is300 on the one size 296mm for both cars? I'll have a spare set of front brakes off my Subaru Legacy soon which use 316mm discs, I know I'll need adaptor brackets made to fit them. Although I'm not sure if I will need is200 brake lines or the same ones on the subaru for their calipers?
  8. Evening, Just spent most of the day trying to free a binding nearside front brake (car has been laid up for quite a while). Eased the pistons and the top sliding pin but the lower pin remained stiff despite cleaning and greasing. When pushing the pin in it is a very tight fit and the small rubber bush kept moving up the pin to the taper. Very often the pin would also slide back out on it's own as if something was being compressed as it was pushed in?? Taking the bush off helped the pin move more freely. If left off I assume this could lead to a rattle or knock but has anyone else had any experience of this? Any views if it would be ok to leave this bush off to allow a freer movement? Any help would be welcome. Many thanks, Adrian.
  9. Hi everyone, I put my 2005 Rx400 in for an m.o.t. last week and it failed on o/s park brake cable & shoe's, shoe's were cheap enough at £22 but Lexus wanted £95 for the cable, I searched for a cheaper Uk alternative & as usual no one in the Uk wants to supply Rx400 parts ... anyway I got one from Rockauto for £17.67 (£50.06 inc delivery) takes a couple of days but is about the only source I've found for Rx 400 parts without being fleeced by the main dealer, Just a heads up if anyone is looking for brake parts on this site most are listed under Rx 400h 2007 not 2005 ...
  10. Wobbly Steering Wheel

    I've been plagued by a juddering steering wheel (45-60mph)and no idea of the cause. Had the wheels balanced twice & tracking checked. Then noticed the tyre would not spin freely when the car was jacked up. Yet again a sticking caliper is to blame. I was basically driving with the front nearside brake partially on. I have cleaned, lubricated and compressed the offending pistons and cured the judder. My thanks to Alexey Gavrilov for posting a useful video which was the basis for my diy fix. Here is the link, hope it works...
  11. Hi Guys, I am hoping to have my horrible looking rusty calipers painted this weekend and was wandering what type of paint you guys used and if it had to be high temperature paint. I am awaiting the delivery of my caliper decals which I ordered from Amazon on sunday. The thing with the caliper decals is that I am getting very nervous that they are not going to arrive in time as they have not been dispatched yet so was wandering for a back up if there was a stencil that I could download from here or a link to somewhere else on the internet as I am very excited to have these browned off calipers looking good. My next and final question lays with how many coats of paint do you think I would need and if I need to finish the job off with lacquer or not bearing in mind if the sticker decals do arrive in time I am only using these as a stencil. But all suggestion and help is very very much appreciated, as me being me, I am very inexperienced when it comes to doing minor tweaks on my beloved Lex (it's also easier just to pay someone to do it ). I am hoping someone can give me some advice on this, Many Thanks Simon
