  1. Hi John solar panel on order, I will set it up this w/e on the garage roof weather permitting.... Found this on an American Lexus site, Lexus own recommendations for storage! Jack L-SB-0018-09-Long Term Vehicle Storage Guidelines.pdf
  2. Hi John Thank you for your advice! The Solar panel idea could be the best way to keep the battery going without the battery becoming sulphated. I do not want to remove the battery and loose all the car settings, ecu, etc, only as a very last resort. Looked at this unit on Amazon would this be ok? Jack
  3. Hi All, Looking for some advice and tips on storing my SC430 over winter in an unheated, no electric, garage. First I have waterproofed the roof and hung a tarpaulin under the garage roof to collect condensation drips. I plan to inflate all the tyres to max air pressure, some searches I have done on this and other forums show tyres on stands, thick foam etc. I plan just to leave the tyres on the ground at the moment. Also I will place a bowl of salt inside the cabin to collect moisture a trick I used in my caravan. Is it recommended to start the car up and run for 10 minutes every month? plan to leave it inside, end of November till May next year! So battery, unable to leave it on charge, but can I use a booster ie TACKLIFE T8 Mix jump starter connected to the battery to provide it with power all the time and then remove every so often, to charge up to the return to vehicle. Or should I only place booster pack on the battery to fire up the engine every month? Any tips and thoughts appreciated! Jack

    Sc430 amp

    Hi Just seen your post on here, re-post on this dedicated UK site for SC430s! https://forum.lexusownersclub.com Jack
  5. Hi Had my SC430 2007 replacement airbag from Lexus 2 weeks ago, (2nd replacement). Checked DVLA site to see recall notice on there and soon after had the letter from Lexus main dealer. Service reception said at least 10,000 vehicles affected in the Lexus range!
  6. Picked up the car today after 3pm, they had it since 9am yesterday. Looking great, seem all ok dash no marks and everything working. Two other SC430 in having the their airbags changed at the same time. Good work Lexus Cardiff ! Jack
  7. Booked in at Cardiff Lexus 2 days required to do the work, loan car offered! Jack
  8. Hi Yes today, and it appears talking to service at Cardiff, it affects other Lexus models!
  9. Hi Is there a simple fix for a cup holder that is not working on my SC430 please, does not want to move when pressed? A new replacement from Lexus/Toyota is £157, is there a simple fix, when pulled up the assembly is joined together, I prised it apart and sprayed WD40 onto all the moving parts I could see, but it refuses to move after pushing it back into its resting position! Thanks Jack
  10. Hi Just paired my iPhone 5 to the SC430 telephone system, ie connect via bluetooth, then pair the phone using code 1212. Phone connected.... but I cannot get my contacts loaded onto the system as the pairing drops out all the time? SC430 2007 model so can anyone shed any light on this problem! Thanks 2ddesign
  11. Hi Herbie thank you for your post, I did see that on another site as the 303 and it got good reviews. Just had a reply on another SC430 site in USA, Scott says this is the Gold standard as it plumps up the rubber, helps remove wind noise according to reviews on Amazon! At £20 a tube it seems expensive but if it makes the rubbers more pliable it should stop water and wind noise, cheaper than replacing rubber. Jack
  12. Hi Has any one tried this product on their door and folding roof rubber seals? And is it any good? 2ddesign
  13. Hi Try this site as they specialise in this model, Richard whose site is is fixes SC430! https://forum.lexusownersclub.com 2ddesign
  14. Hi Just got back from a trip away ,not in the SC430 though. I have had a go at setting the wing mirrors and as you select reverse in the car, the mirror tends to jump a bit on the cogs as it drops and does not return to normal position after drive is selected. I have spent some time checking youtube videos and setting the middle position of the left/right wing mirror adjuster, this is supposed to turn off the dropping in reverse. Tried it but still getting a jumping on the passenger side mirror as reverse is selected, the adjuster inside the car seems a little loose on the front drivers panel perhaps this might be the problem. The previous owner says it was all right when it left his place, but I only drove it home to my house 40minutes?? Could WD40 sprayed behind the mirror make it smoother? Jack
