THx +rep. I think I'll wait until my brake pads are nearly gone to get this one! Or see if they'll let me keep the original pads!?
BTW, I merged this to go with the other TSB stuff.

Rattle after startup, coming from under car.

Don't have the TSB, but here's what one dealer did to fix the problem.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
I got my car back today. Turns out the noise was from a faulty VVT-i controller. Here's the specifics on the service order.

Faulty VVT-i OCV on right hand side of the engine. Found no9ise coming from right side intake VVT-i gear. Removed intake, right-side valve cover, timing chains. Replaced right side VVT-i camp gear. Let the car sit overnight and check for abnormal noise. O.K. No engine noise. Test drive vehicle and check for all DTC code = OK.

Parts:
(1) 11213-31040 Gasket, Cylinder
(1) 17176-31060 Gasket, Air Surge
(1) 13050-31070 Gear Assy, Camsha
(2) 00272-SLLC2 Super Long Live C

All covered under warranty.

Have you heard the noise since the work was done? I'm getting this noise about 2 or 3 times a week and find it to be unacceptable. I just want to make sure I have some document to refer to when I drop the car off at service.

08 IS-F Ultrasonic Blue 11.91@120.58mph
06 IS350 (Sold) 12.84@109.20mph

It wasn't my car, but the owner who'd had this done has had no problems since.

Hi, your link to the service bulletins doesn't seem to be working.

You're right, these free hosts suck! If anyone can direct me to a good free host, please let me know. Needs to be at least 50mb, preferably with no ads or banners or pop-ups.

FYI, there is a vibrating mirror TSIB out now. This has been such an issue for me, looking forward to getting it fixed. Here's a link:

I've done 4 of these and they apply to GS300 and IS350 only. Your dealership should of changed both vvt-i actuators. This TSIB only applies to a noise that occurs on cold start only and the noise sounds like metal against metal for less than a second.
Most of the TSIBs you guys are listing are minor things: The one with the vehicle pulling to one side applies to every lexus vehicle made. What you guys need to understand is that you can't just go to a dealership and tell them to do this tsib because it applies to your car, it has to be verified by the tech who is working on your car, so before you bring your cars in for service on a TSIB, make sure it actually happens or else your wasting a techs TIME.

I got my fuel line recall notice yesterday. It's two fuel lines under the hood. Says it takes about 3 hours to do the replacement.

SSC 7LC - fuel pipe replacement.

I'd like to see the actual TSB on this.
