Exhaust trim

11 posts in this topic

Original tail pipe trims were corroded and tatty and then one fell off ! Bought a couple of universal trims from ebay or avail on amazon search 44-73MM and a number of 364-A.

Had to cut the flared end off with an angle grinder then clamped these onto the pipe from the muffler. I think they look pretty damn good :)

Nice job, they look very smart. The original chrome tails do seem to be a weak point on the SC and Lexus quoted me about £80 each if I remember correctly.

These were £10 each, more like it :) Time will tell if the finish survives.

I have a spare original if anyone wants it before it goes in the bin.

Yes agree, round or slightly oval looks right. Well in most cases. :blush:

On a roll this weekend. Replaced Bank 1 Sensor 1 O2 for error P0135 and disabled the TPMS system by removing the plugs ( from the tutorial on here ). It does literally take a few minutes the O2 sensor on the other hand !!!!

The lambda sensor is not a bad job with the correct socket and as you say TMPS is easy to get to as the trim all pulls out by hand , I had two or three goes shorting out the connections to get the light out ,been ok for for 10months so far ......and the TMPS system not an not Mot requirement only after 2012 :smile:

As an after-market TPMS for peace of mind, these are quite good and plug straight into the 12volt socket. The sensors fit onto the wheels as locking valves.
