  1. Just upgraded mine last week, eurocarparts LED 501w5w canbus friendly bulbs, well worth it £8.99
  2. Hi John With the start button on orange the wipers work yes just no water
  3. My windscreen washers are not working, so far i have cleaned the jets with a pin, disconnected the t-joint under the bonnet and checked for dirt, checked no pipes are kinked so next step i guess is checking the fuse, i dont have a manual but i think its a 30amp fuse looking at the fuse plastic cover index, cant seem to pull it out and check as they are so small and awkward to get to, and i have a habit of breaking things in my hands, anyway question is.....is it a 30amp fuse, could it be the washer jet motor thats gone? anyone else had a same problem?
  4. Peter The ASSS suspension system was on the sport model and i think an optional extra on the 450h
  5. Hi Paul Did you pick up the 450h? I have recently got a 58 plate also. am also thinking of modding my one, let me know how you get on and what mods you will be doing
  6. Hi John I am referring to the side orange strip inside the headlight
  7. I don't like the orange indicators inside the front headlight on the GS450h i think it dates the car, any ideas on somehow changing the lens to clear? Has anyone done this or heard of it being done or even any ideas
  8. My skills are very limited, but understood what you wrote, now have some options as to what to do, thanks for your helpful post
  9. thanks John for your help, i think its wishful thinking that its gonna be the crank shaft sensor, not sure what to do but either way its gonna be expensive
  10. Thanks Britprius for your reply, yes that does seem to be the conclusion that the timing chain has been stretched, I spoke to a "master technition at Lexus and he said if it was a stretched timing chain then another fault code would come up, so I just wanted to change the camshaft sensor before committing to such an expensive job, so brought the sensor but now not sure where its located haha
  11. As title says i have the error code p0017 crankshaft position camshaft position correlation bank 1 sensor b and i have brought the sensor and as i am running out of money i want to fit the sensor myself but not sure which/where the sensor is, any help please anyone, my car is 2008 450h
  12. If in Berkshire area i recommend UK Teknics in maidenhead, they are specialist in Lexus hybrids and give honest/experienced advice and not expensive
  13. Had mine 5 weeks now, not gone smoothly but i love the car, make sure to check for any fault codes on the computer and parts are staggerlngly expensive from Lexus but they are fantastic cars that tick all the boxes for me
  14. Just brought Denso wiper blades thanks JeffL its due to rain this weekend to will report
