Once the customer is happy it’s a win win situation for the garage . Garages know fluid need changing every two years but as I say the Tester is just a sel...

A clear tester with 3 lights. A red, amber and green. Its sold under the neilsen brand. No matter what flui...

I've never come across a mondeo with callipers like that either.
Messed with enough of the things over the years too.

Road Tax Help

Went through the above at my local post office.
First member of staff didn't have a lot of idea but manager soon pointed her in the right direction.
Receipt issued for the 12 months free tax and new v5 dropped through door just over 3 weeks later.

1976 SE6 GTE

On my car there is a collection of inline fuse holders that were tucked above the heater pipe in the passenger footwell that goes from the inlet to the heater box. I found it easier to remove the pipe to get proper acess to the fuses.

Brake fluid tester recommendation wanted

From the ones I have tried the cheaper £4 do work & some, but not all, of the ones in the £20 price bracket are just branded versions of the cheaper testers. I have a few of the cheaper testers here and none were as accurate as the tester we had where I worked but they all do show when there is mois...

Brake fluid tester recommendation wanted

I've had a few brake fluid testers over the years & the results just showed you cant always go by what looks ok. The one car I bought which the brake fluid looked ropey tested ok for moisture content where as our everyday Honda that had full main dealer service history flagged up as needing changing...

Wanted SE6 steering wheel & rear hatch gas rams/struts

Just had another look to see & the wheel does appear to have leather cover stitched around the rim. Agree that the problem is the rubber/plastic has come away from the steering wheel itself & that's causing the wheels twisting issue. The SS hinge plates and screws arrived earler today. Many thanks M...

Wanted SE6 steering wheel & rear hatch gas rams/struts

Trying to see if I can find a good used set before I buy new, unless they are cheaper than I remember them being.
Replaced them on my SE5 all those years ago and now the SE6 is doing exactly the same.
Talk about history repeating itself :D

Wanted SE6 steering wheel & rear hatch gas rams/struts

The search for parts for my SE6 has finally started.
Looking for a good steering wheel (mine looks ok but the leather is loose and twists).
I also want 2 good gas struts/rams for the rear hatch.

I can see the list growing over time but they are the most obvious bits needed at the moment.

nice period radio upgrade

Mine took just under a month to arrive.

After sitting in the car having more of a play with the radio I have ordered another one to fit in the scimitar.
(thats where the first was supposed to be going till my wife decided she wanted a new radio in her car as the old one was playing up)

nice period radio upgrade

So far Ive tried it with mp3 on SD card, USB stick and bluetooth music streaming from a android phone all which worked well. The bluetooth...
