Airbag clock spring is dead! Help!

Hi all. The airbag warning light is on in my 96 Granvia TD and the horn's stopped working. Sod's law the Mot's due next week! The general consensus here seems to be that the clock spring (long ribbon cable connecting the steering wheel wiring to the dashboard) is broken. Mark at BBC Spares doesn't h...

Granvia Meet Up South East UK?

Hi. I wonder whether a meet up might be popular for owners in SE UK? It would be interesting to see other vans and meet some of the owners who occasionally give me a wave on the road! I'm based in Lewes, near Brighton. If anyone would be interested in a New Year's meet then I'd be happy to organise ...

Re: Can I drive my 4x4 temporarily as 2wd?

Thanks all for your replies. Mark at BBC Spares was brilliant in tracking down a used one even though it turns out they're like hens teeth! All fitted and normality has resumed.

Re: Can I drive my 4x4 temporarily as 2wd?

Thanks for responding Richard. It's the transfer box to front differential prop shaft that's bust, not a drive shaft. I'm wondering whether I can get the broken prop repaired given it's the UJ pin that's broken rather than the shaft itself. I'm guessing it will need balancing again - does anyone know?

Can I drive my 4x4 temporarily as 2wd?

Hi. I'm REALLY struggling to find a front prop shaft for my '96 4x4 Granvia after mine snapped at the UJ. Have tried everywhere including BBC Spares. I desperately need to get mobile and I wondered whether I can drive it as it is for a couple of weeks? I know in the long term it's a no-no but how ab...

Sudden horrible vibration! Help Part 2

Further to my previous post I'm ordering a replacement front drive shaft (transfer box to front differential) tomorrow and my mechanic will fit it Friday. I've seen posts here about the importance of marking where the old shaft lined up in preparation for the new one but my mechanic says that's not ...

Re: Knocking front suspension *fix* & Gearbox Lock-Up

I'd be interested too! Especially if you manufactured them for sale with a warranty? You'd make a killing and I'd save £££! Thanks.
