  1. Well done Shirish with the sale, your exploits will be missed on here as you’ll be You and your brothers cars were my inspiration in that magazine article, when looking to buying mine All the very best and let us all know about your next purchase, as I’m sure some of us will have driven or owned one
  2. The switch is most likely stuck on the shaft, will need a slight pull, or flat blade screw driver to help. I did repair mine as a wire inside had come adrift. Just take the black cover off and check continuity at different positions. To see if break can be re soldered Good luck
  3. I have a cracked air filter housing, so depending on price, would be interested
  4. Congratulations, with not the ideal drive home. Must of felt amazing after all this time, now with two newish arrivals at home. The melting or loose fuse is a common problem, a great feeling when a repair like that gets you home, without hanging about for a tow truck ! We have now two weeks of sunshine with no rain, enjoy your car, it looks great with that interior too
  5. Yes, same here with the weather from Ireland home . Two big accidents in a very short space, with Aqua planning, I would imagine. Good news about your wife, new cars are amazing. Would not have been the same in an old car like ours ?
  6. Vincent

    What these wires?

    A switch for a previously fitted alarm system, mine is on he other side on an 87 Carrera ?
  7. That's unlucky, I have used a G clamp to remove an oil filter in the past, I think someone secretly tightens mine overnight Good luck with the repair
  8. Oh trust you Jevvy to come up with a far better answer than me I’ll put my chocolate toolbox away Good idea with the brake pedal, I’ll use that next time
  9. I’ve just done mine and you can certainly tighten more than finger tight one note in manual, don’t lever against the hub to move the shim, just use the screwdriver with the force of your hand Hope that makes sense
  10. Loverly, well done, looking like a Liverpool win tonight ? Judging by the colour
  11. I think those socks can be saved? But the trousers probably not.
  12. Agree, you and your family are irreplaceable, your car can be repaired and will look as good as before. However, that's heartbreaking seeing your car burning and very little you can do. I have an extinguisher in my car and hope will never have to use it, but wouldn't stop an engine fire, like yours. All the very best
  13. Just spoken to Sam, the handle is 100% original, as the rest of his car. He has replaced the trigger part twice and the handle 5 times.
