Hi all,

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

 

Joel

...... in the Toyota section but the clips include measurements that you can base on an existing clip in your car

So these lock in as they look like what I already have and they do nothing at all. 

Why on earth do Lexus use really poor clips when the rest of the car is put together so well

If they are rattling too much you could stick the panels together with strong adhesive velcro

      I've just acquired a 2000 LS400 and as I'm driving down the highway, I noticed a vibration that seems to have started immediately. I put it in neutral at 70mph, it goes away. Put it in park and rev, vibration builds slightly. It's not terribly noticeable but anybody familiar with these cars would notice immediately. Please help I am suspecting misfire? Also I have no clue when or if timing belt has been done. Odometer reads 150k however I noticed some 250k readings earlier this year on vehicle history report. Also no codes.

      I have owned my is250 2011 for 1 year now. Full main dealer history. 58000 miles. Main service has been done. Over the last few months when braking and steering at a low speed there are a couple of clunks that sound like they are coming from the front drivers side wheel. I look it to lexus Hatfield and under warranty they replaced the shock absorber and top mount. The car seemed to be ok for a while but not long ago the clunk noise has appeared again. It also only happens when the engine has warmed up. Some people have suggested the pads are moving but the pads and discs are reasonably new so shouldn't be moving yet. Any ideas
