  1. Update: I dropped my car into Lexus on Friday morning last. Following an inspection, they advised me not to drive it, and that they won't have a replacement part until early this week. They provided me with a new Yaris in the meantime. They didn't know how much it would cost as they've never had to replace one before. I just got a call from the service manager to tell me that they're still waiting for the part to arrive but hope to have the car ready for me by the end of business tomorrow (Tuesday). He said that it appears that the part failed by itself as there was no sign of damage on the pulleys or tensioner, and that they would cover the cost as it has only been 5 weeks since it was in with them for service.
  2. Forgot to mention it's an IS300h, I was just on the phone to them, they said that it would be checked so it's possible that something got caught in it and caused a tear. It looks more like it is a clean cut rather than worn. I'm dropping it in tomorrow so hopefully I'll know more then.
  3. I'm just after washing my car and topping up the screen wash and I noticed that this belt is seriously frayed, it's spilt in two along part of it. I'm guessing it needs to be replaced immediately, right? Is this something that is likely to have been noticeable for a while? It was serviced by Lexus 5 weeks ago.
  4. My last service was at 87,625km, yesterday's was 102,424km. I don't recall the spark plugs being replaced last time tbh, if they are expensive then I would remember 🤑. I'll check the invoice tomorrow and contact my dealer if they haven't yet been replaced. Should I stick with Lexus or go with a local independent garage to change them if needed?
  5. They didn't mention them so I assume that they didn't need to be replaced. I bought the car just after it would have had a major service around 40k miles so it's possible they were changed then. If they needed doing then they would have said so, it's not like they don't add every possible charge on.
  6. The light came on again last Friday morning, ground temperature was -5° and it was icy out. Light was gone again in the afternoon, pressures were fine when checked 🤣
  7. I just had my ~60k miles service yesterday, here's my receipt (price in €)
  8. Just a quick update, I hadn't had any further warning lights since December 26th. Weather conditions since then have ranged from snow, ice, -10°c - +15°c....🤔
  9. I checked the tyre pressure on Dec 26th, reset the tpms and the light has not come back on since then. I jacked the car up a few days after that and inspected the tyres to make sure that there wasn't a nail or something in one and all looked ok. It's a bit of a mystery.
  10. Yes, several times, the problem keeps occurring.
  11. Over the last few days it has been on and off sporadically. This morning for example, it was on then went off after 7 minutes; pretty much the same on the return journey. I went back out again shortly afterwards and it didn't come on at all. The weather hasn't been too cold or variable so I'm not convinced that this is the cause of it. As I understand it, a fault with a sensor or the system would mean that the light would be blinking - which hasn't happened. I'm starting to think it's on the mulled wine or something 😂
  12. The first time it happened this winter was actually the first frosty morning so I assumed that was the cause, but it hasn't sorted itself out since. Last winter, it happened when there was a lot of snow but as soon as that cleared, it went away
  13. My 2014 IS300h F-Sport's low tyre pressure warning light has been coming on for the last 2-3 weeks. I have been checking the pressure in each tyre almost daily and nothing seems amiss so I suspect that the problem is with a sensor. Has anyone experienced this before and how can it be fixed? Tyres are worn but well within limits, no obvious signs of damage.
  14. Yeah, it's not bad I guess. I paid €430 for the major service last month which also included wiper blade replacements and a loan of a brand new CT200h for the day.
