Can anyone identify this piece of metal I found in my handbrake

Recommended Posts

I recently bought an is200, after noticing various intermittent scrapping and clunking noises from the rear wheel,

I stripped it down and replaced pads and disks, something I wanted to do anyway, upon inspection I found this behind the brake disk:image.jpegimage.jpegimage.jpeg

Can't find where it's come from but it's fairly battered and bent , it had also bent the spring pins causing them to contact the brake disk,

 

after i had put it back together there's a fair amount of grinding, from both wheels, I've drove about 3 miles since and it's still there, it's kind of what I'd expect from the disk rubbing but I'm not sure if it's a bit excessive

Hi

I had a similar situation on my back wheel of clunking and banging. I had it stripped down and a cable guide held by a spot weld had failed and come loose, this was falling around in the wheel!

see these posts below and Tango's post explains it also

Just had exactly the same problem on my '04 IS200, however unfortunately mine is completely knackered (bent and partially worn away).

My rear disk backing plates are completely rotten, I've called Lexus and they want £250 each for replacements. Other than trying breakers yards does anyone have any good ideas?

I had the same thing last year, I removed that part. Checked the the opposite side, which was still attached. Have been driving without it since and hand break seems to work fine.

Hi Try this group on Facebook  Lexus IS200 Classifieds (+IS300/Altezza)

Ricky Smith is always breaking IS200's and posts stuff to your address.
