New shocks and springs recommendation please - going for Protech

Tom Be very careful about fitting longer springs.
Reliant used longer springs at the rear as the shocker travel was longer too.
As they may have more coils wound on them to get the extra length they may go "Coil Bound" before they should, therefor losing suspension travel.

Until the ball breaks off and remains stuck in the button head screw that you were trying to undo
Serves you right for buying Chinese Cr4p :doh:
In ALL my years I have never snapped off the ball point, even after twisting the key beyond it`s design allowance.

Rear lights bulb replacement se5a

Pete?
The small one is Flashers, the large one is Hazards.
Most newer solid state units only need an extra Earth wire fitting to operate, some need an extra power source.
They make a massive difference to the flashers and they usually flash brighter too.

Seem a bit dull & indicators seem slow, not really even going out between flashes.
That`s not usually associated with bad earths, more normally a worn out flasher ally can, if messing with flashers better to convert to solid state.
