  1. Check that the Security Wheel Locknut Key is not damaged and make sure that you know which of the many variations in design of the Security Locknuts is correct for the car in question. The Locknut should be in a box complete with a label listing the design style number of the item. If the locknut is damaged - a very common fault caused by using impact air wrenches when new tyres are fitted - without this identification number you are lost and the only way to get the locknuts off the wheels is to smash them off risking damage to the alloy wheels
  2. I also had a massive problem with my 53 Plate is200 with the security locking wheelnuts. When I bought the car in April part of the deal was new tyres The tyre fitter used an hammer impact airgun and when I got a puncture - fortunately at home - I found that the internal locking "key" had been totally destroyed. Lister Lexus in Cheltenham delivered their own Locknut Key to me that evening so I could change the wheel. When re-assembling use "Coppaease" grease on the wheel back face and wheel studs. Fully tighten the normal wheel nuts, just "nip" the anti theft locknut up and check everything after 100 miles

  7. Low Fuel Level Warning Light

    The quoted Tank Size is 70 litres / 15.40 gallons
  8. Hi to all, I'm a new IS200 owner I was surprised to observe that the car handbook makes no reference to the quantity of petrol left in the fuel tank when the Low Level Fuel Warning Light illuminates True, most cars do not have an accurate figure for this but most manufacturers at least they tell that say 10 litres is left when the light comes on. Yesterday mine came on for the first time and I continued on the A14 for about 20 miles. Not knowing what was left in the tank I put £ 10.00 / just over 7 litres into the tank quickly. I then filled that tank at Tesco ( I had a 5p off coupon)and it took another 55 litres to fill up to the brim Thus 62 litres was the fill up less say 4 litres for the 20 miles which I drove i.e.I think that about 10 litres of petrol must have remained when the loght was originally illuminated Does anyone else know? Best regards to all Anglia105e

    Hi I've just taken delievry of my first Lexus a 53 plate is200se 65 miles on and everything is fine so far! There's a lot that I'll need to know about this car - it's a bit off the radar for me It drives beautifully. I'll get it running how I like a car to be, then move on Anglia105e
