chr15gb posted a topic in Lexus IS 250 / Lexus IS 250C Club / Lexus IS 220D & IS 200D ClubHi. My boot may as well have no dampers fitted, the boot slams with a vengeance unless you control it's decent until the final few inches, then drop it. I have had a dig around and I can't see any part numbers on either of the struts. There is a warning label with some unhelpful English but the rest Japanese. Ebay have plenty, but all from cars of a similar age to mine (2008) which may or may not work. I found http://www.sgs-engineering.com/car-boot-tailgate/lexus/is The problem is they only have an IS300 as the model, not an IS250. The picture looks the same but I don't know if they are identical or not. Does anyone know either the part number for an IS250 boot strut or know if the IS300 simply has a larger engine in the same body type?
MoT came up with a few surprises, see pic. Before I approach any garage(s) for opinions/prices, has anyone had similar issues? Would be nice to know just how deep the mud is before I venture into a field which is new for me. Thanks 2000 GS430 in otherwise good nick...
PCM posted a topic in RX 300 / RX 350 / RX 400h / RX 200t / RX 450h ClubAny opinion would be welcome ... For a while now - and I suspect others do too sometimes - my RX makes a rumble sound, from the front? I hear it when driving at slower speeds,straight, e.g., at 20 mph, but the road does not have to be particularly bumpy. I suspect, based on reading and research, that it could be shock/top mount, related? I am wondering... should I take it to my trusted independent garage, or should I take it to my equally trusted, local Lexus dealer. It was bought from Lexus up North, about 9 months ago, and is still in its first year of Lexus warranty. So I'd rather keeps the costs down if possible... Does anyone have a view?
