I would like to service my Lexus soon and wondered if anyone has used an ebay service kit?

https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/301177489473?ul_noapp=true

Is it better to pay more for QE and if so any recommended suppliers and service kits for the IS220D?

Where abouts in the engine bay, is the air con recharge point in the 220Diesel?

Used similar to do oil and oil filter worked fine

Thanks both. Good to know people have used similar. Yes it helps as now I know roughly where it is so I can point the garage who is doing the recharge in the right direction. Looks as if I need to remove the bottom right engine cover trim.

Thanks. James:thumbsup:

I tend to buy all my service parts from ebay, but I am quite particuar about the brand of the components.... I would be nevous about the link shared, as it isn't at all clear what you are getting.

Worth checking Lexus ebay shops first... birmingham and sheffield have both been helpful .... then move onto the blueprint and mann etc...

I am not too keen on using parts from ebay as I am not convinced the parts are always genuine - take the spark plugs that have been found to be fake in the past - just cheap enough to be thinking you are getting a good deal but not too dear to make you think they are not worth buying.

I would rather, with certain items, buy genuine as if you are putting in a fake part, take the plugs as an example, £50 for the plugs may cost you £££££'s in repairs due to failures.

Not saying they are all fakes but its wise to be careful - the genuine sellers as mentioned above are best to deal with such as Lex Birmingham / Sheffield etc. or use a recognised dealer or outlet. Filters etc fine, I would use these but plugs, oils etc I would be wary of.

Realising the fitted parts are fake after a failure, would an ebay seller have the means to refund the cost of the repair to the car if found out it was their parts that were supplied that caused the issue - more than likely possible from a main dealer or other main store outlet I would have thought...
