  2. Hi cannot edit link on my first post....new link do you need a breather tube as fitted on a Panasonic battery?
  3. Hi I also started a post about a new 12v battery for my RX 450h 2010 model....https://www.lexusownersclub.co.uk/forum/topic/118405-replacement-12v-battery-for-rx450h/?tab=comments#comment-1078909 To date it is £197 for a replacement, or £146 + shipping from Japan, is the cheapest OEM battery I have come across. Although on an Americian Lexus forum some people have fitted cheaper batteries ( FYI....Cross Tyres & Auto". They're in Crosshands about 60 miles from Cardiff did not get back to me and I contacted them twice.... they fitted Steves battery for £70.)
  4. Hi Paul Thank you for your reply, contacted Lexus Bristol parts dept, who have one in stock and its £217.06 without fitting. I will check out your link, still waiting for Cross Auto Tyres to get back to me..... where Steve had it done for £70.

  6. Hi steveledzep Thank you for your reply! what a great price! Do you have a special make battery for the larger capacity and did you have to rest all the systems, eg radio, windows, seats etc? Regards 2ddesign
  7. Hi Have just asked Lexus Cardiff for the price of a replacement 12v battery for my 2010 RX450h. The original battery is inside and Lexus service reception say that this should be replaced every 5-7years. The price from Lexus Cardiff is £266.36 all inclusive, which I take to mean fitting as well. Is this a good price for the battery? Have over people used different replacements? Thanks 2ddesign
  8. Hi My IS200 has 169,568 miles on the clock and I source all my parts now from a chap in a group on facebook "LEXUS IS200 GROUP" or "LEXUS IS200 classified's" Both are closed groups and easy to join, Ricky Smith is the main supplier of any part for an IS200 vehicle, he breaks Lexus cars and will fit parts if you go to his place or posts them via delivery companies,(payment in advance). I recently had a part for my suspension, Lexus wanted £110, he £25 including postage...join the group and contact him! 2ddesign
  9. Hi My IS200 had banging from the rear drum, Lexus in Cardiff stripped the brake area and the weld had rusted away holding the "cable run" and it had come away.It caused a lot of banging as it hit some parts of the brake system.After some straightening of some components with a hammer it was all put back without a cable run! 2ddesign

  15. Hi Purchased a second hand RX 450h last year which came with RAC Breakdown cover. Now nearly a year on it is up for renewal at first contact £123, after chatting to an advisor on the phone it was reduced to £94. Cover is unlimited rescue, Roadside recovery & at home rescue. No onward travel, courtesy car as these are extras to the policy. In previous posts someone mentioned Car Breakdown Cover from AutoAid, A full year’s wide-ranging cover for just £43.31. Also if you click the link above you will see that it comes with the package below Roadside assistance Car and passenger recovery Home breakdowns Emergency travel or overnight accommodation Cover for caravans and small trailers Cover for theft or vandalism Message Service This seem a very good deal has anyone had experience of this service or any suggestions? Thanks 2ddesign
