  1. Past hour
  2. There's now a link to this similar thread. Makes you feel glad to have a Lexus...
  3. I could have written all that about my brand new 2011 E91. The dash was out more times than something that's out a lot. After much polite persistence BMW/Sytner took it back but not until I'd had to put up with a diesel Mini One for I don't know how many months.
  4. Congrats. I’m on the lookout for a similar age RX450H, good to hear all went well with you and the purchasing process.
  5. Good Morning, Just by way of an intro I joined the club today after acquiring a 2011/2012 MY, RX 450h, Argento Ice with grey leather, and it's brilliant! It was from the Lexus dealer in Newcastle, although I live in Derbyshire, and they have been hugely helpful. I also drive a Jaguar XKR which is getting harder to get out of! Hence the RX. As with the XK owners club I see it's a goldmine of first hand experiences in the real world and one I look forward to contributing in Oh, and apologies for posting this elsewhere.
  6. I joined today and found you via Duckduckgo, my search engine of choice. I am familiar with the the Jaguar XK owners club and looking at this site I saw similar levels of genuine owner involvement. I have posted an intro in the rx450h area was this right? Cheers Phil

  8. Ah, thanks Texas. Had a look at my filter yesterday following the correct procedure just to check the condition. Couldn't see anything that would snag, catch or obstruct the filter, probably because I did it properly though!
  9. Great that you got things sorted. I would add to anyone reading this using Virgin Broadband (especially if using DOCSIS cable routers), they can be a real monkey if not impossible to sort port forwarding on the routers. Not sure why, but we have had a number of customers who work from home and need port forwarding to have remote office phone extensions, and had fun and games with Virgin getting things to work.
  10. I enjoyed reading that James, many thanks. It did not contain even a hint of criticism of the Lexus Drivetrain !
  11. That's true, but... there can still be a laziness and/or inability of the service personnel at main dealers to do a methodical job. I had a Nissan Maxima that ran well until it developed a near-stall fault when hot. Despite me giving them a printed copy of the full service manual, the Nissan dealership would not follow the very clear step-by-step fault-finding flow diagram in the manual. That was super detailed and thorough, but required time and effort - as well as the equipment - to do. They just stuck the diagnostic reader on it and said 'no fault'. Don't have any comparable experienc
  12. If it's any help at all my ISF was only the second one i'd ever seen. I went to look at it as i've a mutual friend through the specialist selling it and he was kind enough to let me have a look around it as he knew i fancied one at some point and you dont get the chance often! Long story short is that i drove off in it the next day 🤣 The specialist failed to tell me how good an example mine was before i went to view, that it had a Hayward & Scott exhaust already installed, nearly new Michelin PS4S tyres etc. I'm sure he knew what he was doing 😂 They are awesome cars and i cant th
  13. The circuits to the operating components are ok so the wiring is ok ,the switches that operate through wireless commands are not so it can be one of two things ,programming and ECU commands it may be the ECU but changing it will raise other issues as it is coded to the fob .The failure of these components is rare on this car so I think the answer to the problem is in the programming and is out of line somewhere.Start from scratch and re programme the set up from scratch .

  16. Brilliant! Your post inspired me to get mine working. Win-win!
  17. Reading this article makes me wonder if when a part is made there are two levels of QA tolerance. One if the tolerance that means the robots etc on the production line are not going to hit fitting issues, where as a spare replacement might have slightly worse tolerances as it will be fitted by a 3rd party not on a production line. I could be completely wrong in my thinking.
  18. Hello Piers, Yes I overcame the problem with the help of a chap on a CCTV Forum who guided me through setting up 'Port forwarding' and everything seems to be working a treat now.
  19. That's caused by over cleaning with fairy liquid. There's no point cleaning leather every week. Do it every 6 months to 1 year depending on soiling with a good leather cleaner and seal it afterwards to help it stay clean. It doesn't need more frequent cleaning than that

  21. Great post and reaffirms that some leather interiors just aren’t looked after. Yours does look good and that’s what I’d expect. Just got it into my head that Lexus may have switched to lower quality leather lol! Likewise I’ve had a couple of RX300’s in the past and went SE over the SE-L, just to avoid any potential additional expense should the air sus fail.
  22. Interestingly my whole system died after I initially tried repeated openings. Even electric close after manual opening didn’t work. No beep no nothing. I thought I’d blown a fuse. I hadn’t. I couldn’t work out what then had switched off all electrical opening and closing points. I checked the glovebox button hadn’t magically switched off. No. So I turned it off anyway. Decided only to open hatch manually from then on not wanting to risk any electrical system/motor damage with failed lifts, even though it appeared that had already happened ie system death. After driving around and che
  23. That makes sense, but I've never used the phone cradle in the car. At one point I thought about removing it, then decided to leave it for the sake of 'originality'.
  24. The servo arm that moves the door/flap gets broken I think if you try and open it manually and not available as a spare part and whole unit has to come out ( Somehow?) very expensive and needless repair if instructions on filter replacement are followed exactly!
  25. You’re more motivated than me. Wellies and 1KV gloves good idea. You’ll need a helper. Make sure you mastic the rear hatch seams
