Could anyone recommend a good brake caliper painting service in London, as my wheel hubs are really rusty now.
Or if anyone in the forum who does this service. And what would be the cost for 4 wheels. I found a few but they were not located in London.
I have some parts available for anyone who is willing to collect until the end of this week from KT6 7NL (Surbiton, South-West London, ideally between 8:00 - 17:00 but I am flexible to help if that is necessary). Those came off from a 2006 IS 250, and those are free of charge:
- 4 x 17" alloy set, not in a very great shape (peeling etc.) but those are refurbishable,
- Both front calipers in parts,
- Also both rear calipers, but those are badly squeezed,
- Automatic carpet mat set, the driver one is worn, the other ones are in good condition.
(Please prefer messages.)
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.
Dear fellow owners,
I am just replacing all the four calipers on my IS250 (the new ones are still in the box), and I was wondering on getting them laquered to protect those from rust.
Ideally I would't paint them so I am planning to use a clear coat only.
I found these products on amazon, would you think those would work on their own, without a coloured primer?
Thanks for your time.
Dear fellow owners,
I am in the process of replacing the brake calipers on a '06 IS250 as I wanted to get rid of the seizing-recall-affected parts.
After checking numerous forum entries, TS bulletins, I got confused about the correct greases to be used. i would prefer using Lexus/Toyota greases.
This is what I found:
1, For lubricating the slider pins, seals etc.:
- Toyota 08887-01206 / 08887-83010 Rubber Grease (this has been mentioned in a lot of documents, reviews and also in the early manual)
- Toyota 00289-1WG00 White Grease (Technical Support Bulletin of the recall)
2, To use as an anti-squeal grease on the shims and as lubricant on the contacting surfaces between the pad and the pad support plates.:
- Toyota 08887-80609 Brake Caliper Grease (Toyota Ireland)
Is it safe to assume that this combination will work fine?
Thank you for your help in advance.
