The car has a really bad clinking sound. A light came on for a while but when I turned the car off the light went off and hasn't came back on. I don't recall what the light was but the clicking sound started about a week or so after that. I took it to the Toyota dealer since we have no Lexus dealer here. They first said needed brakes which worked a little while. I took it back and then they said shims which worked about 2 days. I'm afraid to take it back to them without knowing exactly what's going on.

    If Toyota mechanic can't fix it, we can't be much help as we can not look at it. Go back and say hey, it is still making a noise!

    I just wanted to know what it could possibly be so that when I go back I can tell them what I think it is. They are doing a whole lot of guessing. But thank you for your time.

    try a shop that specializes in performance vehicles. lexus and toyota don't even belong in the same class. one luxury, other economy. it makes a difference.
