Hey there everyone i have a few questions on the abs pump/ Brake Booster / Accumulator squeakbafter pump engages. From what i understand this is a fairly common issue with this pump/ master cylinder. I dont actually have a Gs300 so mine may be slightly different (crownmajesta). What im wondering ia if there is anyway to even temp fix this issue as i need to have a vehicle inspection and they failed it previously due to the brake warning indicator light coming on. Even if anyone knows of a way to avoid having the light come on so i can deal with this issue at a later date. They failed it based on the indicator light alonebas the inspection check sheet says the hydraulic system passed and all other braking components passed. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Please point my in the right direction if i have misposted this.

      Anyone know where I might find instructions/guide for replacing the left rear brake shield on an 2007 ES350? It seems everything must come off to replace it, including the parking brakes. I could wing it, but it would be nice to have some info going in.

      Curious how many Lexus owners have had a brake actuator failure.  We have a 2013 RX350; we bought a new RX450, and parked the 350 over the holidays planning to sell.  When I started it, numerous warning lights came on: the "Check AWD System" light, the engine light, and the VSC and Traction Control System lights. Upon taking the vehicle to our dealer, were we told that the brake actuator assembly needed to be replaced.  The cost to do so was $3,855.12.  I found there was a NHTSA recall on 2/12/2014 for this issue, requiring a software upgrade to avoid the failure of the brake actuator.  The dealer advises that software was updated in 2015 - which obviously didn't work because the brake actuator still failed.  Lexus is refusing to cover this, even though the predicted failure occurred anyway.  If anyone else has experienced this, please let me know.  I am preparing litigation on this issue.

      Okay so i own a 192xxx mile gs300 its an 03. This past 2 weeks its been missfiring, i think its an o2 sensor. Thats not my real issue. I have a battery light that flashes on i just replaced it too. Then i have an airbag light that comes on an goes away, at the same time my gauge cluster flashes on and stays off for a random amount of time. If i turn on the ac the battery light goes away and the air bag light goes away. Also if i try to use CC it wont work unless i turn on the ac. Also my check engine  light is on. Please help i was considering taking it to a lexus dealer to get dianosed. I dont really want too becauase im an automotive student this would be a good learning experience, but it seems a bit out of my league. My guesses are theres a short in the ecu.

      I drive down a hill on a regular basis, a highway off ramp, with a stop sign at the bottom.  As I brake I can see the power created by monitoring the kilowatt gauge, the needle dives into the blue showing the results of regenerative braking.  After about 4 car lengths the needle returns to zero even though I continue braking for many more car lengths. I can feel the reduction in braking when regenerative braking disengages and compensate by pressing on the brakes a little harder.  Meantime I am monitoring the traction battery graphics, the one that show how fully charged the battery is, and it show the battery is 3 or 4 bars below full.  So if the traction battery is not full why is the Regen braking disenging so quickly?  If I release the brakes for an instant a Mb d then apply them I can get the kilowatt Gage to dive into the blue again, and I can repeat this several times but with each cycle the amount the needle dives is less as is the duration.  The car is not throwing any codes.  As for fuel mileage, it's close to what it should be but I think it is slighty low, but it is hard to say for sure.  My sense is it is lower by approximately 1mpg.  If the regenerative braking would stay engaged for the duration of the hill this would go a long way toward topping up the traction battery.  The only thing I can think of is the graphics are lagging behind the actually state of the battery.  And I should mention I cannot remember the last time I saw the traction battery full.
