se5a bonnet release

Dan, no problem if your bonnet is releasing a little way....it might just be that the release lever mechanism has stretched. Firstly, as you suggested, get someone to pull the lever whilst you apply downward even pressure near the catch....it might then fully release. Secondly, if you can get finger...

MOT exemption

And a lot of friendships Jim! Yesterday, I told my friend, who I help set up a machining tool for sharpening greens mowers at his workshop, that I would be staying away and last night I got public vitriolic abuse on Facebook from him for letting him down! Oh well, got plenty to do myself and good to...

SE6 side window fitting

I think it was car sos that had a window in fibreglass described. Someone might know the episode, but in short.....plenty of lubrication (ooo mother!) Washing up liquid is ideal, then use a rotary motion with the hands as you pull the cord out. Once you get the knack it's surprisingly easy.......tha...

I made mine out of microbore, cost me £2! Mind you, it's super easy when the car is already in bits :D

BBC4 tonight @9.00pm

Sorry Jim, still only living on 3 hrs sleep a day at mo. Why the hell I read le mans as great escape defeats me!

BBC4 tonight @9.00pm

Just incase you've never heard it....but Steve McQueen was not able to do the bike jump due to insurance etc. But if you look closely, he dressed up as one of the germans and joined the chasing group!

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

Buying from Ebay supplier in China in today's problematic times is non viable......I know, I've purchased a high level stop light and delivery time keeps getting put back.....now standing at may 1st!!

Not criticising, as I'm happy to wait.....I actually feel sorry for the suppliers.

Smashing rotor arm

I wrote some time ago about a new (supposed) genuine motorcraft rotor breaking inside my distributor. Cap is genuine and nothing else damaged luckily. Now got a genuine red rotor arm fitted (purchased from burtons).
You live and learn!

If you have misread it and it says CONLOG, then yes....it is an immobiliser.

Lots of advice on landie forums about how to disengage them....think Vauxhall's had them as well.

Ground works

Hi, groundwork refers to the preparation of what is there.....this can be removed if not stable and a suitable infill introduced (no point in removing solid rock!). It all depends on what is likely to be ontop! You don't specify, so difficult to advise. Is there heavy vehicle movement? A vehicle lif...

A wise man once told me to get up in the morning, write a list of what you want to achieve today in order of importance and throw it away at the end of the day and forget it, repeat!

E10 Fuels - FBHVC Press Release

Common sense and politics are, once again, mutually exclusive. Phil, it took me too long to realise that political decision making is completely about looking at the next election and you and I are just pawns in the nasty game.....sorry :shock: Me? I'm more concerned about the reports that a member...

Oil change

Mind you, you might not get as much extra oil out when hot due to it flowing better and more coming out anyway...as the one on the stand was obviously cold! 🤔
