  1. Yes. I also have a tapping in that area. I have not solved it but also think it is behind the vanity light. May prise it off at some stage to investigate further. It is difficult to pin it down as it is intermittent as you said. The second issue is of course, that troubleshooting whilst driving is tricky to say the least.
  2. Use silicone spray on both runners with window wound down. Good for about 3 months - then repeat when squeak returns. Must be silicone based - wd40 will ruin the rubber. https://www.lexusownersclub.co.uk/forum/topic/113342-squeaky-window-when-winding-down/
  3. IS300h 2013 110k Wipers stopping on windscreen cost me €500 Drivers seat back worn through cost me €900
  4. Peter, Thanks for that. Unfortunately I don't believe the CO2 emission figure from that website. All manufacturers are going to have to increase their official CO2 ratings as the lies about fuel consumption is revealed. However, at the moment there seem to be no hard figures. https://fleetworld.co.uk/hybrid-fuel-economy-winners-and-losers-revealed/ https://fleetworld.co.uk/fleet-fuels-hit-hardest-by-wltp-co2-hikes/
  5. Does anyone have information on what the new CO2 emissions will be for IS300h under the new WLTP regime?
  6. coat hanger with double sided sticky tape wrapped around the end.
  7. Ian, how much did that cost?
  8. Bob, That's great news. Wish someone could have saved me 500 euros 😞
  9. I did notice a tiny bit of packing poking out from the L/H passenger footwell when I got the car back, so relays could well be in/near the fuse box located there.
  10. @k900 According to worksheet 2 of the same. You may only need one. Or indeed it may be the motor and not the relays. I'd be looking to eliminate faulty relays first. Diy job - I'd say yes but only if you can locate them (that will be the hard part) and possibly may need soldering skills to replace. I've attached the component diagram that I downloaded from https://www.lexus-tech.eu way back when I was looking to do it myself. If you understand electrical diagrams you can see the 2 relays (with the coils). This doesnt really help in locating though.
  11. make sure they try the relays first as otherwise you will be got for labour on replacing wiper motor twice if it turns out not to be the problem.
  12. The part number is: 9098704004 I was charged 58 a piece but can be had for chips on internet.
  13. Colin, Indeed, I had though about that. But 50 off a bill or 500 doesn't reduce the pain significantly and to be honest, I prefer having 2 new relays (car has 110k on clock) as I don't want to ever have to deal with similar wiper issue again. I was informed by garage that there have been less than 10 reported faults ever in Ireland for this problem with is300h. (something like 3 motors and 5 relays).
  14. Update on my wipers only working on high speed and requiring manual intervention to park at bottom i.e. hitting stop when they are at the bottom. Waited 2 weeks for wiper motor to arrive, Visited garage and they replaced motor. Still had the same problem. Said it was probably the relay. Waited another week to get the relay. Visited garage and replaced relay. Still had the same problem. Five hours later finally sorted problem - apparently a second relay in the circuit was causing the problem. So 2 visits, 3 weeks elapsed time, 5 hour wait, 2 relays (@ €58 x 2) and €300 worth or labour, its now working. So much for Lexus reliability - crap.
  15. Have a very similar problem with my wipers. 2013 is300h 110K. Wipers only work on full speed. Not rain dependent. Will stop mid screen unless I hit the cancel when they reach the bottom. Even at that, don't park properly at bottom of screen. If I do manage to get them to park exactly at bottom by accident, then intermittent works for a minute or two and they freeze again mid cycle. Had it looked at and need a new wiper motor (400+). Getting replaced once part comes in. Very disappointed in the quality of this Lexus part. Seems like I'm not alone. I was thinking that one possible explanation is that the wipers were left on auto when frozen to windscreen, and the motor internals were compromised.
