Re: Brakes-Changing the pads

I had a similar problem when I changed my pads but stripped down the brake cylinders when I changed them (to see what sort of condition they were in) as I thought I had sticking pads. When I put them back together and bled the system I had a very 'long' pedal but was fine when the engine was off (no...

Re: Dipstick problem

Tres bizarre! Never heard of that before. Did it go back in OK after checking the oil? I have great difficulty in getting the auto transmission dipstick back in and have to twist it round a bit before it finally goes in. Can't imagine what's holding it. The plastic moulding at the top with the loop ...

Re: Heater controls and back lights

Sounds like a dodgy connection or bulb holder if it works intermittently.
Sorry can't help your with getting at it as mine has an lcd display type.
Register at and have a look at the parts diagrams which might give a clue as how to get at it to check it out.
Good luck!

Re: Starting

Hi confused Jon! Are you losing any cooling water? Check that the radiator overflow/storage bottle isn't slowly filling up or signs of aeration in the top of radiator when starting from cold.

Re: How to maintain battery charge without mains supply

Does the battery discharge if you have the immobiliser turned off? I had a car that would discharge the battery when standing for a few days turned out to be a 'leak' on the aftermarket immobiliser wiring. Disconnected it and problem sorted. If the battery is being discharged then it must be going s...

Re: Drive away awnings - help pls

We bought a DWT Fjord awning from Wellhouse and have found it just the job for add on room when touring around. Definitely better build quality than Kyham which we had lots of trouble with legs breaking and the company going bust and poor support. They're very well made (German) and stable when up b...
