Spot the Scimitar - fun caption quiz

With you on that Mark, I'm thinking someone is once again trying to wind someone up.

Spot the Scimitar - fun caption quiz

Im a new member to this forum just wondering is that forum fingers your quoting or payed up members? To my knowledge no forum members are "paid up members" only club members pay club fees, the forum is free and information is given free. I can't see what the fuss over numbers is about.

SE6a Wiper "Wheel Boxes"

Top photo is drivers side bottom photo passenger side. Yes Ian, your bottom photo (passenger side) is the same as my top photo (passenger side) mine has a much smaller hole and larger wire harness that yours. That's the first time I've ever had anything bigger than someone else. :lol: Regards Terry...

SE6a Wiper "Wheel Boxes"

I don't think removing the dash would help Jim as this job goes forward passed the bottom of the windscreen. Removing the dash top wouldn't help either as you still have to go down under the windscreen which I believe is blocked off on mine.

SE6a Wiper "Wheel Boxes"

Thanks Ian, Your wiring seems different to mine. Where the arrow is in your last photo showing the wheel box I have a large wire harness that refuses to move (shown in my first photo). Annoying really as that's where I would like to shove my hand. I have the bundy tube disconnected from the motor an...

SE6a Wiper "Wheel Boxes"

There's a lot of wires around the hole and going through the hole Jim. Using a dremal is a bad idea for my shaky hands. I'd end up having to rewire the dashboard. The area I need to get access to is behind the central area far behind the radio but it appears to be blocked off at the sides rear of th...

SE6a Wiper "Wheel Boxes"

With the bonnet open I gently pulled on the tube from the engine bay. I managed to get the passenger wheel box in to view I cant pull the tube through this way, as a matter of fact I have both wheel boxes loose but they wont drop through the holes and I cant push them through either. I have everyth...

SE6a Wiper "Wheel Boxes"

Managed to take a few stills of the hole that is the access to the wheel box from a short video of my mobile entering through the glove box area. As you can see from the first one there's no room with the cable in the way. The second still shows a faint line from top left running diagonally to the b...

SE6a Wiper "Wheel Boxes"

I now have both the old wiper wheel boxes loose but still cant get a finger in to the wheel box on the passenger side. I've taken the glove box out and the radio but that was no help. I would love to see a video/film how this wiper system was originally assembled and installed in the car. The hole i...

Removing facia panel

.not sure if it is a screw on or twist and pull fitting though?
If I remember right it's a spring clip that you have to press/squeeze in.

Youngest 6A?

my log book registration date as proof of age ( 19/5/1978 )
That date would mean you have to wait until April 2019 for Historic Tax. Not sure if October 1977 would get you Historic Tax either yet.

SE6a Wiper "Wheel Boxes"

What model do you have. On my 1976 SE6 there doesn't seem to be any access hole directly below the wheel box on the passenger side. I have the glove box out and have removed the large air duct and the hole is just above and behind where the duct was but the wheel box position is about 3 - 4 inches t...

SE6a Wiper "Wheel Boxes"

Indeed - but the fronts fit in same way, Terry. I think it might be mystery solved? The problem is indeed solved Phil, looking at the above diagram Johniewalshe posted with a close up of the rear wiper that was taken from the top half of this diagram below se6 electrics 20.png The bottom half shows...
