  1. Also a 12v battery going south can trigger the alarm. I've been looking for years at how to disable the LS alarm without joy.
  2. Welcome to the LOC! My Celsior came with door edging already fitted in Japan and it's very subtle so it is available somewhere. Hopefully someone will put you right.
  3. I replaced the clock spring on a previous LS430 (although it turned out to be something else) and I would certainly pay much attention to the air bag warnings. I disconnected my battery and waited at least 30 mins before doing it. I bought a used one from Germany so I assume left and right hand drive are the same?
  4. Another member had a really badly cracked wheel recently, I've not heard of it being a common thing though. I don't know why the car would sag after being jacked up but the sir struts are complex beasts, it may well be because the height sensors have been raised so high. Glad you got that disc off at last, did you dance on its grave?!
  5. Surely a non OEM belt will do until you can get a genuine one.
  6. As we're on to domestic appliances, we've had our Bosch washing machine for about 15 years and still going strong, our Miele vacuum for 6 so far. The best of all is my Rexel stapler, I remember it in our house as a kid and now I have it and it's perfect. My wife on the other hand gets through them at work on a regular basis because they just don't make them like that anymore. Oh yes, our Creda tumble dryer is at least 20 years old.
  7. I know told you in the past about my old Volvo ownership, and as I've now got time to do the jobs I've been putting off I was in my garage last week and hanging on the wall, covered in cobwebs, was the timing belt removed from my 740GLE all those years ago! Although I've no idea why I kept it. A shame all timing belts aren't as easy to replace.
  8. At least there aren't restrictions on car fettling if we have space to do it away from people.
  9. Wow, I've never seen one so firmly stuck. I guess you tried some heat?
  10. He's fine and dandy thank you, as is his friend who also had it. Both back to normal, both fully recovered within a week.
  11. I guess lots of us will have a chance to get things done that we've been putting off. For me it's laying new lawn and (if) I can get sand and cement some repointing!
  12. Yes, my brother but got over it within a week. Nothing too bad, a fever with sweating for 2-3 days and feeling fine 7 days later.
