Re: Access to horns

For future work, I moved the horns into the wing void next to the compressor, I "resined " a fixing bracket, onto the inside of the wing.
Short tube run, better noise, and you can (just) reach them both through the lower grommet hole.

Re: Power steering pump mounts

What mounting have you got? What actual bolt is gone? On newer engines, one bolt doubles as a sump bolt, and the other two go into thrreaded holes on the water pump. If it is one of the water pump ones, you just take this off the front of the engine, drill out, or easiout, and if it's shot, use a he...

Re: throttle jammed, now white smoke

Obvious though this is, and I'm a bit enbarrassed to even suggest it, but remove the spark plugs and the engine will turn easily.

If it still won't turn, you have my condolences!!!

Re: brake lights perminantly on...

It really does just sound like it is stuck in.It's way up high, and it's the upside down slide down the footwell, with a head mounted light.After removing the curved trim panel, under the steering wheel.

Re: Fitting rear seat belts

Because they are hidden, this is a breaker's yard job.

As long as you get the length of the belt, and the wire tunnel bits are the right length, a lot of seat belts will probably fit.

Re: Rear window sealing

The triangular side interior trim panels, are only held in by a couple of metal spring clips, it's fairly dry in there, so just pull them, they should be OK. When I redid my headlining, I was not happy with the "floppy feel" when they went back, so I refixed them with a black " Fir tree" fixings, pu...

Re: Rear window sealing

This isn't as difficult as it sounds,(see above- remove and refit) and in the long run will be more effective. As in everything in life, there are tricks involved. Most important one for this, be really careful, find a place around the window, where you can, (really carefully), get a route right thr...

Re: New owner niggles, advice sought

I've got bored with otter switches over the last 40 years. I brazed a 22mm brass nut from the inside of a ford rad, to mine, so it now takes an ultra reliable, temp switch from any Ford or VW, and when it goes wrong, it's £6. ake feed from battery through relay, connect two wires from relay to switc...

Re: Excel Bits Garage Clearout

I've still got the rear lights if anyone wants them. They have both been cleaned and resealed, £15 pair plus P & P. If anyone want to make offers on the stuff on the list, they are welcome, it's just hanging around, and some I know I will never use, because they are "second spares". Terry Stuff Left...

Re: New owner niggles, advice sought

That's quite a list, but I don't think the majority will be too serious. Before you start each one, check with us, one of us will have done the job before, and usually made mistakes so that you don't have too. E.g The bonnet catch, initially it's " they all do that that Sir", the only real cure is t...

Re: Painting Citroen mirrors

DOH, I cut and pasted this from the other forum, but it doesn't seem to have worked.

You guys are probably more IT lit than me, can someone correct the link?
