Hi i have noticed today that my lexus is making rattling noises when going over bumps in the road or over a speed bump it sounds like its coming from the exhaust or the shields but i've had the same problem with my previous lexus and its quite annoying can any one tell me how to resolve this problem or if they had the same issue as me.

mine is doing the same at the moment. I have sourced my problem to the rear brake pads wobbling around. When i press the brakes slightly on a bumpy road where it would normally rattle it stops.

I was told yesterday its the shims or something like that. but that doesn't mean alot to me!

or it could be the same problem i had i removed the drum and found that a small pice of metal had come of the backing plate and was rattling arount inside the drum,

simple fix remove the rear caliper remove the disk/drum(de adjust the handbrake first)and if theirs anything in their it'll just fall out then rebuild...

I wish I could just do that, it sounds soooooo simple. would make my life much easier and alot cheaper! I should have been a mechanic! Oh well.

well i took it back to bosch garage not very happy at all my rear shims are not even on the car so they have order two new ones in for me but i still carn't see that being the problem!! really confused hopefully that this will be case and this annoying rattling noise will go i am really annoyed argh bloody is200's.

the noise is like every time i go over a bump like the exhaust is loose and rattling really bad against the heat shield it sound like the brackets are loose but had it checked and its not the exhaust also got the heat shield bonded so it won't move i hope its the shims.

remove the wheel,de-adjust the hand brake(you do this through the wee rubber grommet on the disk)remove the two 17mm bolts that hold the rear caliper on pull the caliper off tap the disk/drum(not on the braking surface though!!!!)the disk will then just pull off job done.....
