As it’s been forecast for strong winds like an idiot I opened my bonnet to top up with washer fluid! A gust of wind managed to remove the front plastic engine covers along with clips.
i know the clips are poor however are any people using alternative clips to hold down there engine covers? I know most people have some missing or all of them so wondering what are people are using.
Have looked on eBay and ones I have seen look like the poor ones I have already.
cheers in advance
I thought below is quite good offer, obviously service included is just minor essential, but good way of keeping Dealership service history:

Hi, I do not really have any idea about cars at all, upon starting my car this evening (lexus is220d ) 2007 I got the vsc error and turned on the engine and Tc lights. Would this be from a filter problem, I have had no problems before. It is due for a service in 2k (currently 80k)
would you recommend to call the road side assistance and ask them to define the fault or to take it to a garage or a dealership and ask them to asses
any help is much appreciated
Looking for an answer into the issue i have with my IS220D.
it is an manual 2006 IS220D with 140,000 on the clock.
I bought the vehicle in June, knowing of this issue, but hoping it’s a cheap easy fix to which I have only attempted terraclean as of yet.
The issue I have, is that the car feels well underpowered before the turbo kicks in, foot could be flat to the floor and it feels like it is holding back. Asoon as the turbo kicks in it’s flying.
Has anyone got the solution?
Thanks in advance.
By IS220d Remapped (2 years)
Thought I should join to share my IS220d experience.
I had issues blanking my EGR few years ago as it would throw up all sorts of errors. tried cleaning but only eliminated issues temporarily.
I found a company willing to do a remap. He managed to delete DPF and EGR. I then blanked the EGR with a plate and got the DPF gutted by a professional welder (mechanic) within a week of map.
The car was at 120k mileage when mapped. it is now at 162k pulling strong on all gears. the economy, torque and response was an still is really noticeable. I manage 38>mpg on minor boost and 31-36mpg having fun with it. These figures vary dependent on weather and road conditions hence the large variations.
1. hydrocarbon engine flush. (I just did it for the sake of it)
2. remap (delete EGR and DPF from ECU)
3. Blank EGR (blanking plate from ebay)
4. DPF gutted then re-welded professionally (from my mechanic)
Hope this helps,
