I've found clutches for around $195, and the entire compressor for about $375.

Thank you so much Colin! I'm 99% sure it's a clutch bearing - the noise is there as soon as I turn the engine on.

What kind of car is this?

Once in a while I check out 'wrecked exotics' website - they have some interesting pics. They usually have a write-up about the vehicle in questions, but this time it's blank.

Thanks

What's a humane way of keeping cats off your Lexus? Mine is often parked on the street, and the neighbourhood cat loves to warm itself on the hood.

Another option is to purchase a manual off Ebay. I recently bought a 93 LS400 as well, and I purchased its manual at the auction site for about $10. I think it's money well spent.

If you could, which one of the three would you own, and why?

Thanks guys. My dad's a mechanic so I'll ask if we can take a look at the rear struts together.

I didn't see a price listed: how much would new struts cost?

From what you've told me, I would say 'yes', but I'd still get it checked out by a mechanic.
