  1. Hi, is there a complete service schedule available for the is250? I have never asked Lexus about this but presumably depends on age and mileage. For instance, in some other makes the cam belt needs to be changed etc., I recently changed the oil in the differential. Has anybody done this? Wow, what a difference this made. The car is so quiet now, the only noise I have now is tyres on our awful roads!
  2. Can I just ask, when changing front discs, is it a good idea to apply copper grease to the hub before attaching the discs in order to prevent them from rusting on?
  3. I've put a new link for the brakes in the How to section

      Thanks normski2, appreciate it. I was hoping to tackle this today but my pads have not turned up from the supplier,😩 I don't suppose they will be here until Monday now, it's not good as I paid for 24 hr courier delivery!  

      I'll have a look at your blog all the same though, thanks again,


  4. Unfortunately, this link does not seem to be working now.
  5. I agree with johnatg, I bought the rubbers from toyota (no Lexus dealer near me). The blades are specifically designed so that the rubbers can be replaced. Look on YouTube for instructions, it's really easy and took me about 10 minutes.
  6. I have just read all the above posts and find them very interesting. I was looking for some answers to my problem which is tyre wear on the outer edges on the front and rear tyres of my '08 IS250. Bought from Lexus with their assurance that the vehicle is thoroughly checked for faults before selling, they confirmed the geometry would have been checked at this time and is correct, after querying it with them following 2nd 10K service. There was some wear on the front outer edges when purchased, but the rear tyres at this time were not showing any wear. Now 10k further on the rears are showing w
  7. Ok first let me apologise for not mentioning my rattle was for 250 sel. Secondly, sorry about the late reply but have now resolved the problem with the rattle. Lexus said they wanted to have the car for 2-3 days as they had other vehicles where they had to remove all the headlining.I wasn't particularly keen on this idea but would expect them to do a good job whatever I decided. None of this was necessary though, as having got the missus to sit in the back and investigate, having feel around, she discovered the noise was coming from an area of roof lining next to the coat hook. When pressing
  8. I have been informed by Lexus that there has been a delay in recalling vehicles for checking of the Fuel Pressure Sensor due to delayed parts from Japan because of the sunami. Apparently, vehicles are not being recalled if they do not have the parts in stock and are waiting for delivery. Therefore, it must be assumed that Lexus are not performing 'a check of the fps and modify it if necessary' but are replacing the 'O' ring as a matter of course. This is a preventative measure against fuel leaking should the fps becomes loose. They have advised the number of reported cases of this happening ar
  9. Yes, I have a metallic sounding rattle on rough road surfaces on the driver side, not in the roof but either pillar or rear door area. There is nothing in the vehicle rattling and thought perhaps it might be the seat belt mechanism inside the door pillar. have yet to tackle Lexus about this and if I have any result, will post. I am quite disappointed about this as well as annoying.
  10. Thanks Tango, I don't like to just yank at things unless I know what the consequenses are! lol :)
  11. Don't laugh at this...but can anyone tell me how it comes off! It appears to be fixed in the centre somehow.
  12. Just to update my last post. The holes mentioned are not actually through to the wheel arch. It seems on further investigation that there is one on each side behind the wheel arch and in the area towards the rear of the car. I can only assume these are for some sort of ventilation of the boot area. But why? Is it because of condensation problems in the boot? What are they for? Can anyone tell me?
  13. Hi Steve_L. Although not directly relating to your spare wheel well, I have noticed, after having a thorough inspection of my boot on the is250 sel, that having removed the plastic tray to the left in the corner, there was mud which had sprayed up from the wheel arch. I then discovered there is a plastic moulded box lower down which when feeling around I found a flap of rubber which opens outwards exposing the wheel arch to the ground! I cannot understand what this could be for. Does anybody know? If its for cables, why would you run them on the outside exposed to all the weather? The discover
  14. Thanks guys, really appreciate your input. I think the 5k put me off immediately, but it is interesting to hear the comments of those of you who have it. Reading about it sounds like it would be a good thing but I can understand people being put off if its a bit nerve-wrecking. I must say, its no trouble to flick the arm of the cruise to re-set it. It seems it would be a rather expensive option especially if you did not get on with it!
