  1. WD40 is all you need in the glovebox to keep a SC430 on the road ! ๐Ÿ˜
  2. WD40 worked for me with a drivers side mirror not folding, sprayed behind mirror also the swivel joint.
  3. I have the same one Sly...not put it to the test yet but with 4 vehicles on the drive not being used...come end of lockdown it will surely be needed ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป As others have said they do make less powerful models but I have a diverse range of vehicles ...diesel van to 1.0 Aygo so plumpt for the biggest.
  4. Any OBD2 reader will work on a 2002 SC430 if you just want to read faults codes.
  5. Seeing the reg number and looking it up on the DVLA mot site , the recent failure sheet makes very poor reading and could cost thousands to fix โ˜น๏ธ

Iโ€™m sure other cars will come along over the winter months ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  8. Paul whatโ€™s the next move in finding a car, hopefully the advise gathered so far will make you a little wiser in buying an SC430 ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  9. Did someone call my name ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž
  10. Couple of thoughts with your motoring problems , the GS300 of a similar age could share the same steering rack, worth looking into for used rack. with brake judder..rule of thumb from my car mechanic days....on braking ...judder through the peddle only rear brakes, judder through the steering front brakes. You could of had a pattern set of front brakes that have gone bad already or as suggested, Caliper slider has semi seized and caused one of the front brakes to over heat and distort.
  11. Congratulations on your purchase Richard, Iโ€™ve used Lexus for servicing by have the essential service which is a cheaper for cars over 5 years old . what colour and interior is you car ๐Ÿค”
  12. Yes Iโ€™m happy itโ€™s gone to a good home ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž
  13. plus... Reverse lamps have a different lens, gearbox has manual mode, Revised paint colours and wood dash choices, Radio has soft touch main buttons, Different wing side repeaters, Revised satnav system and donโ€™t share the same update discs with earlier models ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  14. Two guys deal with the admin both have busy day jobs ...so hang in there ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
