Hi, this is my first post. I've recently bought a 2006 is 220d and I need to replace the rear n/s caliper and carrier. The caliper that is currently fitted has the number: 43 L 10, on it, I've found a replacement for the same model of car which has the number: 45 L 10 on it. Does anyone know if this will be a compatible replacement?
I've attached an image of the new part.
I have a problem with my 2013 GS 250 Sport. I have warped three sets of front discs in the last 7 Months, and 5,000 , and 5,000 miles. When I have a new set fitted they are fine and brake smoothly. However, when turning right at speeds above 50mph there is a grinding/rubbing sound, and some vibration in the steering. It is as though the tyres are rubbing on the body work, although this is not the case.
Over a period of 4 to 6 weeks this brakes become juddery when breaking, eventually quite violently.
The garage who have replaced my discs and pads (Halfords) have done so three times and now given up, without actually finding what the fault is that causes the discs to warp.
Do you have any suggestions?

Plenty of threads on this but I just came across something that excited me a little and thought it may help our small community. I replaced my brakes all round some time ago and recall the trauma of finding original Brambo front discs (or discs at all for that matter) for the ISF. Well I just ordered another two sets of discs for my race car for the upcoming season and randomly thought i would take a punt and see if they made discs for the ISF. Result result they do! I can recommend these chaps and endorse the quality of their discs having proven them in racing for at least 3 seasons. For info my race discs exceed 800 deg C, never had a warp, crack or any concern with them so for the relatively sedate road puposes you cant go wrong.
Anyway link and screen shot. When the time comes I know where I'll be heading.
I'm taking my RX into Japex (http://www.japex.co.uk/ ) next week to get a few small jobs done, including getting the rear calliper pins re-greased.
Would anyone suggest anything else while it's there; MAF clean, check air filter etc?
( I get it serviced with Lexus to maintain my Warranty )

I have a two week year old brand new 2017 Lexus 450h. When when I brake and just before stopping there is a very audible creaking sound and thud as vehicle stops. I have not experienced this on any other 450h. The dealer says it is normal but I am skeptical.
Has anybody else had experience of this please? Thanks.
