Re: Making space by removing seats

Thanks Richard
That is exactly what I need to Know. If I can gat away without removing the runners I will probably make a false floor just to cover them, as I don't really know yet if I want it to be permanent. At least this way I will still have a 5 seater,

Cheers Frank

Making space by removing seats

If I remove the middle seats in my granvia, will this enable the rear seat be pushed behind the front seats giving me lots more space in the back

Re: Fan belt replacement

Thanks, that the sort of news I like to hear. One other thing, will I need to remove the air filter box to get to these screws, and do I need to remove the radiator cooling fan to get the main fan belt on, as I will be replacing all 3 belts.

Cheers Frank

Re: Car Radios

It is a Sony CDX-GT828U it's quite old now but I'm sure the latest model would be worth consideration.I bought mine online and it cost less than £60 so a rel bargain. See spec

Re: Upper control arm/wishbone

Thanks guys for your rapid response and advice. The PDF was brilliant, so too the info on MOT's regarding the Granvia suspension. I have now taken my grannie for an MOT and bingo it passed the rigorous steering and suspension checks without a hitch, so as you say, that small amount of play is perfec...

Upper control arm/wishbone

Hi there, I have noticed play in the upper control wishbone drop arms on my 3.0 granvia ( I am worried this could be an MOT fail). Is this something that a fairly competent handyman could do, or is it a job for a garage. Are there any particular problems with changing these that make it particulary ...

Re: t belt light problems

If I remember correctly you should find it in the bottom right hand corner. There should be a wire and connector screwed into one the the 2 positions, just unscrew it and swap it over. Hopefully that should work, by the way, mine is a 96 model, so might be different on another model.

Re: t belt light problems

I had exactly the same problem. I changed over the position of the screws on the timing belt indicator. The mileage reading came back, but the timing light stayed on. I took the bulb out. I decided it was better to have a mileage reading, and when the timing belt is changed it is a good idea to make...
