FAO MICK GAUGHRAN - URGENT

... but my anti- virus etc didn’t pick anything up. No, it wouldn't, because as Andy says it's not a virus. Someone has hacked a contact list somewhere, and sent out messages to all names on it, and so it spreads. No need to send your PC away, just delete the message, but MARK IT AS SPAM first, thi...

Rear hatch SE6/6A/6B/MB wanted

I am looking for a complete, ready-to-fit-on-to-the-hinges rear hatch, tinted or not, but MUST have working heater and MUST have stainless steel frame OR chrome frame with no pitting on the frame (pitting on the handle is OK). Seals must be in reasonable condition - anything that "just needs a new s...

Rear hatch catch pin

Well I foooked ooop then by letting my last one go for a couple o quid. :cry: You're not the only one. My anti-rattle block arrived in the post today: £12 in all :shock: £7 for the block, £3 P&P, and £2 VAT. And a small packet of Haribo 'Tiny Mix' - not quite sure what they're for, to calm me down ...

Align/adjust hinges of rear hatch/tailgate

You’re right, you don’t want to know :D True :cry: However, I would like to know if it matters which side of the hinge the frame goes. It was only after messing around with it all for ages that it suddenly struck me, why have shiny domed nuts and shiny screen frame/bracket, if you then sit it all b...

Rear hatch catch pin

If anyone's interested, I ordered an anti-rattle block today from QRG. Nigel has the most delightful approach - how much is it? says I, oh, about seven quid, says he, I'll pop it in the post for you tonight ! I have no idea how much he will charge me - VAT, postage? who knows? Hope it's not too much...

Align/adjust hinges of rear hatch/tailgate

I've now tried fitting the hinge on the other side of the frame, and it certainly moves the top of the frame away from the bodywork, so that's looking promising for giving me more adjustment. However, the bad news is this: 008.JPG I don't know whether I want to hear this is normal or not! Obviously ...

ALL SE6 onwards will fit ALL cars. as Roger says, this is a bit misleading, SE6, 6a, 6b and Middlebridge are the same. SE5/5a are narrower. I see what you mean, but actually I read it as Mark intended, that SE6 will fit that and all later GTE versions. Many thanks to you all for all this informatio...

Align/adjust hinges of rear hatch/tailgate

Quick question - would the rear hatch fitting on the frame normally go the underside of the black hinge plate (when the glass is closed) or on the top side? Or does it not matter? As per first photo, mine has always been fitted on the underside, but now I come to fitting a new seal I find the hatch ...

[I have few SS frames and a few Complete SE5 and SE6 Units in Chrome and SS. I also keep the "fish" plates for joining the frames, they are brass with SS CS allen screws. Thanks for that, Mark. I've done some searching in the parts lists, and each of SE5, SE6 and MB have different part numbers (qui...

Rear hatch catch pin

If you look at my photos in my OP, 001 was taken through the glass. Apart from the pin, you can see a sort of crazing on the chrome, and the state of the glass seal/gasket looks like the guinea pig's been nibbling at it. What you can't see is tiny scratches in the outer face of the glass proper - yo...

Seems to be phishing. Best not to open the full message (mine said it was 'clipped' - I've never had a clipped email before, certainly not from Mick, so alarm bells rang.

Possibly worn because you appear to be lacking the stabilising "Anti-Rattle Widget" (unless of course, you've just "undressed" it for the photo?) The whole hatch area is getting some tlc at present to remedy PO abuses. The hatch certainly hasn't been rattling, far from it, it's been being distorted...
