I need to replace the ones for my side rear windows. Presumably the are the same?
What were those plastic versions? they look a bit like wall plugs......

On the other hand I am fairly tempted to just block the hole up. Do the side window ones really do anything?
Leak ? :wink:

Rear hatch drain

When considering a flared pipe, the main concern I had was how to make the joint waterproof. The mating face between pipe and bodywork is an 'exposed' edge of GRP. I don't know about your car but on MB61 once the original pipes were removed this edge of bodywork looked like almost raw cut GRP - cert...

Rear hatch drain

Can get you the detail of the collets if you want - pennies off eBay. The biggest problem, as always, is finding what eBay call them so you can search sensibly... I carry them in stock, but I am puzzled as to how water can flow uphill? :lol: :lol: It doesn't need to - all that is necessary is that ...

Rear hatch drain

Not sure about what replacements the suppliers might offer these days, but on MB61 these were STEEL and VERY rusty !! By the time I'd dug them out the hole was way too big for flared brake pipe, but the original plastic tubing was largely intact so it was just a question of the connection to the bod...

Where can I get a mobile phone battery I can trust?

Thanks for all your comments folks, always good to have positive constructive discussion... :lol: With so many defence-related industry folks on here I'm surprised the Alcatel name comes as something new to you. But in fact the phone is Chinese, branded Alcatel under licence from Nokia. So some of t...

Where can I get a mobile phone battery I can trust?

Yes, and I've seen pretty much all of them too! :lol: The issue is, apparently a Li-ion battery ages, and has a shelf life of only 2-3 years at most. So there is little point in buying a "NOS" one. You'll notice the ad you link to doesn't show the reverse side, which is where the manufacturing date ...

Where can I get a mobile phone battery I can trust?

My phone (Alcatel U5) is over 2 years old, the OEM battery is dying, naturally OEM replacements are not available and reputable makers such as Duracell seem only to focus on the high volume models from Samsung and Apple. Getting a battery from eBay or any of several "UK" suppliers that in practice s...

It seems you may have been blocked if you were previously a member, due to lack of use, General advice seems to be to contact a moderator (Tom Williams) though how you do that withot...

LEGAL ADVICE PLEASE

Cheers Derek Problem is I don`t have a lease, it`s a verbal agreement that I pay for the use of " storage", but he is fully aware that I have installed electricity to run my machines to make things. I have even made/repaired/supplied things to him over the years. Retaliatory Eviction seems to be th...

LEGAL ADVICE PLEASE

Mark, there's a situation called "tacit relocation" in commercial law. Essentially if you leased on the 1st Feb for example and no notice to quit was given 40 days before that date the lease continues for a further period. Usually a year. I have a cell phone mast lease which works on that basis. Wo...

Note to mods: I did consider doing this as a PM but thought it may be of help more generally to any others facing any sort of dispute. Sorry if it's too long. Thanks for that history, Mark. It is always useful to know the background to disputes as it does impact on the available resolution options. ...

... my "landlord" ... We had a verbal agreement on cash in hand for rent and no written paperwork. I wonder why you used quotes to describe your landlord? Is there some scope here for some horse trading? How much do you know about him? You might have leverage against him if he is not complying with...

Mark, I'm afraid your position may not be very strong on this. You can find a broad outline of your position on the official government web site here: https://www.gov.uk/private-renting-tenancy-agreements/your-landlord-wants-to-end-your-tenancy There are two sections to your position - the first is ...
