  1. You don’t jump off in the boot, only under the bonnet it’s in your car manual.
  2. Had this problem last winter but rectified itself, the issue was back door buttons dead, button on dash dead, went into engine bay moved a few relays about and it would work again for a few minutes then all dead again. Hope it doesn’t happen this year it was a pain.
  3. Cabin filter changed at last service 4000 miles ago, screen was cleaned 1month ago and car only used at weekends, I don’t think it’s stuck on recirculate as it never steams up when car in use, if it’s under sound deadening where’s it getting in as no signs on carpets. I’ve never had a problem with not using ac on other cars I’ve owned, wife’s car is a Kia ceed she keeps it like a crap box never cleans glass at all and her car has no condensation on inside at all anywhere.
  4. Have got heavy condensation on windscreen does anybody else get this, car doesn’t have a sunroof and all carpets seem dry, it takes an age to clear it before I can drive off, at a loss as to what causing it.
  5. Done my own discs and pads on a rx450h front and back for £125 from Euro carparts for front and back pads and front discs. £85 rear discs from gsf car parts. Your pins are probably what are seized get them off and either fit new or clean and red rubber grease them. On mine it’s a straight forward job just didn’t bleed them As you need a tech stream to bleed on mine. The water pump I’d buy myself and get fitted anywhere as it’s not a Lexus only job and any reputable garage would be far cheaper, gators just forget only dust covers and advisory only.
  6. Found Lexus in Leeds to be a little over priced to say the least, when I got the car from another garage it needed some work doing, Lexus Leeds wanted another £1000 over another Lexus dealer in Stockton, guess where it went.
  7. P f jones Manchester fitted one to my 2010, diy £450 took about 6 hours
  8. Was wondering if your removing the rails as that is what I really need as well

  9. Are your old rails or rack for sale off your existing 2012
  10. still not sourced a decently priced set, sorry not got a clue for fitting I haven't thought that far ahead.
  11. So just got the 2 4 1 warranty on the rx450 but on them checking it over before giving it to me they said the front discs are flaking and new pads needed at £380 competitive they said, I can get blueprint discs and pagid pads for £110 all in. Now I have done my own brakes for years so not shy to a bit of filth or work, what I want to know is has anybody done their own as I cannot find any info on doing these on this vehicle. the only info I can gleam is without a tech stream don't bleed the brakes but what I dont know is if shoving the pistons back would knack the regenerative braking system. If anyone can assist I would be grateful.

  13. After consideration and all the comments on here I'm taking the warranty with Lexus, just for giggles I priced up after market warranty most of them even on their top package wouldn't cover main dealer labour beyond £50-60 and £1000 a claim and at over £600 a year in cost for a far inferior cover. Thanks everyone for your thoughts.
  14. My view of most vehicles I've previously owned is any thing under 5 years old never had any problems, 5-10 years old can become expensive to run that's why I asked for opinions as no previous Lexus ownership and I know main dealer parts and labour could kill anyone without deep pockets and as mine is 7 years old so in the second range now makes me twitchy, I can afford the warranty but not a major bill right now.
  15. Thanks for the reply boys, now when I got the car I needed a new oil cooler rad and new filler neck to fuel tank which cost the dealer £1600 and a new rear coil spring fixed at Halfords £250 under dealer 3 month warranty I got with the car. So by slackbladders advice I suppose it's money well spent. On the service front I paid £400 for essential service in February. So food for thought.
