  1. As of now Extended Warranty still available at Lexus Parts Direct, prices appear to be unchanged.
  2. I have had several flat battery instances. My breakdown customer has suggested getting a replacement, i have now decided to stop procrastinating ! i have the 3rd gen RX450H & after extensively looking found an identical ( albeit not the Panasonic fitted ) The reference on the battery 560 410 054, i have checked all the tech detail Length, Height, Width, Voltage, CCA, Base Hold down, terminal type. In fact it weight at 14.54 KG this is identical to the Lexus suppied one. This was the only one that fully matched the original spec, Several other companies recommended their batteries but
  3. Thanks Herbie, Agree with you Lexus say they are trying to influence the Authorities & Police to bring about change when the Cat's are taken to the scrapyards. Could be some time away before implemented.
  4. Hi looking for advice, in our area of Ruislip hardly a day goes by without a Catalytic Converter theft. Reading the Lexus site & seeing now a bespoke CATLOC for 3rd Generation RX now available. Still seems this is only going to slow down a thief a short amount of time.Lexus appear to admit this & draw attention that the CATLOC is not foolproof .

Thanks again.
  7. Hi have been battling this over last 3 weeks my RX450H went in for service no issues, had the standard car wash at the dealership ( great job ) didn't use the car for a few days loads of heavy rain then the fateful bleeps on the front sensors when I move forward or slow right down, no objects all around the car ,no error messages at all. Tried WD40, 3 times with a bit of success but the damm bleeps came back.I have applied Vaseline as per advice of other members , hope not speaking too soon but all OK and their has been plenty heavy rain.
  8. Hi, with lockdown in London, I need to get petrol from my RX 450 to Lawn Mower, with a petrol syphon .( I know tiny issue with the world problems Covid-19 ) Would anybody know ? Does the RX have any Anti pumping filter on the tank which would normally be there for Petrol theft prevention. Any input welcomed, thanks. Frank.
