  1. Yes that car has been for sale for like over 2 years and yes he is a dealer
  2. Try replacing the relay for the air con first. I remember on the ls400 they thought it was a big job to get the air con working, all it was was an o ring leaking which cost me 90p for a set and air con relay which is label mgt in the engine bay

    Sc430 amp

    If I was to replace the amp with another, what one could I use? And where will be able to get the connectors from to plug from the amp to the plugs in the car?

    Sc430 amp

    The part number on mine is 86280-0w070
  5. I remember earlier this year, I went to lexus birmingham for brake pads and discs for the ls430 I had, I got talking with the service guys while I waited, they said the reason lexus is reliable is because of the ls400 and the CT. He said the other models are reliable but not as the ls400 and CT. Funny thing is, lexus Coventry told me the exact same thing last year. They also said the gs450h is a quick car yes, but wair until the hybrid batteries fail and an oil pump or something like that. Ls430 they said just to go for coilovers and replace the radiator, so looks like lexus know about the issues with the ls430 but having said that, it is s nice car. The cabin feels nice

    Sc430 amp

    Hi I wonder if anyone can help, I'm sending my amp to a specialist in Edinburgh to repair, it's from a 2001 sc430, but my question is, is the 2001 ls430 amp the same as a 2001 sc430
  7. Nope? I'm going to drive for a while
  8. I had that exact issue, it was the brake shield. I pushed it back and a little bit of it fell off, anyway the sound went away.
  9. All you do is take the air Suspension fuse out and you won't get any warning signs on the dash. That's what people do when they put coil overs on an ls430.
  10. Not cheeky at all. He was trying to sell that about 3 weeks ago, like I said he wanted a straight swap with my ls430, but my ls430 is worth more than what he's asking for the ls400, but he seemed like a nice guy. Offer him £1000 and then go from there.
  11. If you want the waterpump done then it's just £99 extra because the engine will be stripped anyway so all you pay for is the waterpump, I think it's £99 extra or it may be £105 extra
  12. Lexus have a fixed price for replacing a cam belt, I think it's £395
  13. I remember this car. The person who owns it wanted to do a straight swap with my ls430 but ls430 is worth more so I wouldn't just straight swap it. The ls400 needs a cam belt replaced, it's way over due, it was last replaced in 2004, he admitted that it hadn't been replaced since and will need doing. It did have an issue with the y section of the exhaust but he said that's now been fixed.
