  1. Hi all I had need to remove the alternator from my is200 yesterday to get to the air-con compressor. I disconnected the negative lead from the battery before removing the wires from the alternator. Did the necessary work, then reversed the original process (so alternator back on, wires to the alternator fixed, then negative lead back on the battery). Now the car won't start, she just turns over (so similar to no fuel getting to the engine). I managed to get her fired up and working yesterday, but today nothing, same issue of turning over and not firing. Any idea what could be the issue? I have ensured the negative terminal lead is tight on the terminal, so it isn't that. Also, the engine management light was on yesterday, with the Traction control light flashing slowly, and the temp gauge not moving off the stop (which has never happened before). I assume I have inadvertently disconnected the temp sensor from the side of the block, which (once again I assume) would make the engine management light come one. Any help will be gratefully received!!
  2. Hi there. First time poster here. Just purchased an IS200, and the aftermarket stereo wasn't working. Quick delve into the boot shows an aftermarket amp was installed, and crudely removed damaging the speakers. New set of 6x9's purchased, YouTube videos watched on how to get old speakers out (how is it 'best' that you have to remove the rear seats to change the speakers? That's mental...!) And duly done, only to find the original speakers have a much larger frame on them, meaning the new speakers can't be attached. I've tried googling for a set of adaptors/spacers that can be installed to make it possible to fit new speakers, but to no avail. Does anyone on here know where I can purchase a set? I have tried making a set of spacers but they are quite inelegant and cause the card shelf to not sit perfectly, which is frustrating. All help gratefully received, and apologies if this question has been asked before. I couldn't find a thread on this exact topic, but...
