  2. I have a brand new petrol cap which I bought for my05 gs300 and never used. It was bought from lexus and I think it was around £35. Common fault. If the seal leaks the car throws a error message. £25 Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks John, I don't mind the trip to the indi. It's just that I can only do it on a weekend so have to wait for a rainy Sat/Sun and try and get it booked in. That's if I can get it booked in. Yes I think I'm gonna go down that road.
  4. It's been sat on the drive today and it's been raining. I started it up and the check VSC light was already on as I started the car.
  5. Hi guys, I need some help. My check VSC light comes on Intermittently. This has been going on for a few months. The strange thing is. It only comes on in wet weather. I've tried booking it in with a specialist but by the time my appointment arrived the weather was dry and the light had gone back out. I reset the ecu the other day by disconnecting the battery and it went out. It's raining today and the light is back on. Any thoughts or advice would be much appreciated. Also I was thinking of getting a techstream off Ebay and try and check it myself. What are your thoughts. My nearest specialist is 30/45 mins away and they are always busy so hard to get the car booked in on a wet day when the light is on. The garage has said they can only read the fault code if the light is on. Regards Malik.
  6. Thanks Barry, That was really helpful. Apologies for the late reply. Regards Mal.
  7. Hi guys, hope someone can help. I need instructions on how to remove the rear bumper on my gs300. Can anyone help. Regards Mal.
  8. Apologies for the late reply. No I didn't get the gromets changed when I had my tyres changed. You can get the Falkens a lot cheaper. I found them for £66.50 but you have to have them fitted yourself. You can pay anywhere from £5 to £15 for fitting per wheel. https://www.tyreleader.co.uk/car-tyres/falken/ziex-ze914/225-50-r17-94w-428162?gclid=CM2qx6fzjc0CFZadGwod664CuQ
  9. I got a letter and a phone call too for my GS300. Recall regarding the fuel pressure sensor. Goes in on the 17/06.
  10. 1. Goodyear Efficient Grip Performance (load rating 98 as opposed to factory fit 94) £100.16 What speed index are you going for v or w? These would be my choice and most likely the next tyres I put on. I was going to go for Falken Ziex ZE914 Ecorun runflats.
  11. Apologies for the late reply. You can reuse the chrome tips. No need to buy new ones. Just get some chrome Polish on them. With a bit of force they just slide off. I was going to go SS route but really glad I went oem in the end thanks to good advice from here.
  12. Hi Steve, thanks for your reply and advice. I gave them a call but the parts guy is away until Monday. I think I may just go the OEM route. I'll have a chat with him Monday to see about the bypass Mal.
  13. I had the same problem. Was going to go the stainless steel route then decided against. Main deal quoted me the same. Approx £600. I ended up getting it discounted as the car was 10 years old. I think I paid £500. I can double check for you if you need me too. Mal.
  14. Hi guys, I had the gs300 serviced today at jem lexus. They advised me that my brake pads will need changing in the next 2k miles and that my disks had a slight lip on them. So I'm guessing both disks and pads will need changing. What are my options. Shall I get main dealer parts or is there another option that's worth while. Please advise as I'll need to pick them up soon. Regards Mal.
