    I am looking for an ashtray in poor condition - looking for the 'C' shaped spring clip/release part in actual fact.
  2. Have you priced a front wheel bearing dust cap? More or less £50!
  3. Tom Perazzo did a video on his Garage Time YouTube channel where he attempted to apply some science to the question. If you haven't seen it (and I am unsure how effective his efforts were) he applied a force in twist without a brace, with a brace and with a triangulated brace.
  4. Could it be a sender inaccuracy? Mine works out of the car but not in the car, I wondered if I just need to bend the float down a little. The dipstick is always right, the sender could be off a little.
  5. Shell say V-Power does not use Ethanol but it is labelled E5. I wonder if that is to cover their airholes if they are filling, say, a truck that last had 95 Octane in? In Luxembourg (and Germany) Aral sell 102 Octane for classic cars, maybe BP have similar in UK and elsewhere (they are parent company). 102 has no ethanol. The nearest Aral is 30 miles from me so I go fill up, drive home and the tank is empty again - haha Total say their Excellium 98 does not use Ethanol (but also say the law says it can have 5% - maybe the same COA as Shell)?
  6. I have tried to understand the lock without removing it from the car - this may be a starting point for you.
  7. Thanks for the feedback, it's definitely the catch in the door. I am going to get hold of a replacement lock and strip down and replace over the winter. When I rotate the knob it locks fine but won't unlock. The rod visibly bends, something is hanging up in the mech. It's all well lubricated in there. All other functions are fine. I have disconnected the knob and cable tied so it doesn't 'vibrate' locked - that would be annoying with the door panel on.
  8. Has anyone had problems with the inner door lock mechanism jamming? My SC will not allow an ‘unlock’ if using the interior turn knob. Works OK if locked/unlocked with the key. Fishing for experience of an obvious/easy fix before I tear down and remove the door frame. The door is stripped and it is definitely the catch part, not the knob/button.
  9. An PO had cut through the electric mirror wiring - I guess to remove the mirror for paint/repair. I found a handy 6 pin connector from bikerstoolbox.co.uk (p/n BTBE009) that is small enough to fit through the 20mm wiring hole. I hooked up a separate cable for the earth as it is a larger size. The connector has spade terminals that are really easy to remove too, making it easy to rebolt the mirror when it falls off the hinge bolt. the cost of the male and female connectors including all 12 terminals was under £2. I just put some electrical grease in and around the terminal prior to buttoning up the door cards to offer some moisture protection.
  10. Update for the interested. I managed to pick up a second 8" Fuchs which, as anticipated, doesn't have this angled edge to the petals. Oddly the part numbers are identical and they both weight 6.9kg. It is still a mystery but nothing that will hamper my driving experience!
  11. I like my RAID wheel, and it comes with the centre pad to help with TüV approval - not something that will concern the Brits.
  12. LA dismantlers have a couple and are willing to ship.
  13. I am looking for a single 8 x 16 Fuchs for refurb if anyone has one. Check the back of your shed
