Re: YAY! Through Another MOT

I managed to get my 52 plate through MOT this week too. It didn't fail on anything, and I did no preparation. Due to shielding and lockdown, the poor thing had only done 60 miles since the last test! Regarding radius arms - is that front, or rear? If front, then treat them like tyres - always replac...

Re: Roof pump oil

IMO Batso, you could be wrong. The fluid that you have found seems to be for power steering. Have a look at this Oz web site, they have the Aral stuff listed. www.lubricants-ils.com.au

Lovely Car

About last November, I went into voluntary lockdown for the winter. Then the China plague arrived so I've been shielding ever since. Two weeks ago a friend took the flat battery out of the car without observing any of the special procedures. I charged the battery up and a neighbour carried it back t...

Re: Slugish Headlamps

Gremlins again! I'm assuming that the relays are solid state and not on their way out. I'll wait for drier weather to probe further; in the mean time, stick to lit roads at night.

Slugish Headlamps

When I flick the dip switch, there is a noticeable delay before the beam actually dips. At times, I think that I might not have flicked the stalk far enough, so I give it another go, only to see the beam dip and then go back to main beam. I've always thought that it must be crazy french electrical d...

Re: Close the roof - Winter is coming

On a positive note, one could suggest that nobody has had any problems in the week. I'm now in roof-up mode, and have pleasantly noticed the lack of exhaust fumes and construction site dust in the cockpit.

Re: Just bought one, few questions

My normal roof opening procedure is to start the engine, release the catches, push the button, watch all the windows go down and the roof fold away. Except that on one occasion, the near side quarter light did not move! As the roof started folding, I noticed that it might collide with the quarter li...

Re: Are you doing this?

I didn't realise there was a "going-down" race too! Going-up includes the rear quarter lights sprint prior to the long slog of the main windows on the home straight. (My race was carried out with the engine running.)
Do I detect a new Olympic sport in the offering? ;)

Re: Battery box

Yet another variant then? Since my first posting, I've been on a number of battery websites, and on a few (where they are facilitated), I have found that if I input my vehicle type, the result is the battery that I now have. If, however, I input my vehicle reg., then my old (longer) battery comes up...

Re: Battery box

The only security that I see is the diagonal strap over the top. There is no register for the strap on the battery, so without any packing pieces there is only stiction preventing fore and aft movement. :(
