  1. Ok, thanks for all the information. It looks as though I am hoping to have to put it back in the hands of my friendly mechanic.
  2. Thanks for the answer. Not sure of the state of the calipers but assuming that when the garage was replacing the discs and pads he would have mentioned the state. I have noticed it getting. Worse over the last week. Mainly if traveling about 30-40mph and light braking it is quite strong. Will have to put it in the hands of the garage but since I have already spent £500 on disc and pad replacement it is starting to be a money pit.
  3. Hi, thanks for the reply. I have had the wheels balanced twice. The vibration went and slowly came back. I understand that it could possibly be a tyre with a flat spot or something. The vibration when I brake is something else. At first I thought it was the front discs or pads but they have been replaced allround and when I picked it up afterwards it was not there so I assumed cured. However I have just driven to Spain and back and gradually the vibration on braking came back. If it is a fault others have experienced then I would appreciate info. Thanks, Tom
  4. Hi Folks information request. I have a 2006 RX300 that has a vibration in the front that can be felt through the brake pedal. I have had the discs and pads renewed allround but this has not cured it. There is a vibration at certain speeds that I put down to wheel balancing but the pulsing through the brake pedal has me stumped. Any ideas please
  5. Anyone interested. I have just purchased a 2005 Rx300 in excellent condition apart from severe corrosion on all wheels. Managed to negotiate a good.rebate on the purchase price because of this. Had them refurbished at Birkenhead Powder coatings at a cost of £250 for the four. An excellent job and transforms the car . I took the to them at 8.30am and it was ready at 1630pm theext day.
  6. Thanks, I was thinking along the same lines👍
  7. Hi folks, I am just in the process of buying a 2005 RX300 with a 100,000 miles on the clock. It has good service history and otherwise good condition but no mention of a cam belt change. The dealer is independent and says that I should assume that it has not been done and as the price is fair I am ok with that. The question is whether it is possible to find out if the change has been done before I spend my hard earned cash on repeating the change. Thanks, Tom
