Have just purchased an IS200 (from Colin P on this forum). The car is reading 52k miles so thought I had better change the cambelt while i am giving the car a thorough service.

Just been to Lexus Bristol to purchase a new cambelt kit (ie. belt + tensioner). The parts guy and service guy have said you cannot buy a cambelt kit :duh:

They then stated that they only ever change the cambelt when you take your car in for a cambelt service! I would normally always change the tensioner whilst the belt is off. The tensioner is available but the main dealer does not use it!

Is this normal??

Colin - Yeah, paid £28.17 + VAT for the belt. Think I will put a tensioner and idler pulley on it just for safety. Suppose Lexus only change them if there are obvious signs of wear!

Hows it going?

Cars going great, apart from the ignition locking in the ACC position Saturday! Half the dash out and a few clouts with a hammer later and it freed up, so just ordered new ignition barrel.

Matt - You have PM

Did you manage to order just a new barrel that will be cut to your existing key? i ask as some people have had problems trying to get this done.
