Re: Starting, & Running, Problems

David,
don't worry about phone numbers.
Didn't realise it was so easy to find garages on the 'net.
Thanks again.

Starting, & Running, Problems

Greetings Everybody, Still having problems with my '92, 480 turbo. Poor starting - have to catch on the accelerator and hold until the engine warms up a little. Then low (400/600) slow-running revs. High fuel consumption when driving. Can anybody recommend a garage with a 480 savvi mechanic (prefera...

Re: Guinness world record attempt......

Got home from Bruntingthorpe at 12:30. Car started misfiring on the A15, near Lincoln, and came to a final halt just outside Scampton at 19:15. RAC had no mechanics available (well; it was Sunday evening) so it was a lorry-lift the rest of the way home. It was that sort of day, really. Hoping to get...

Re: How to mount a towbar...

Greetings James,
thanks for the info.
However,. got things to do before I reach the installation of a tow-bar.
And it won't be until it gets a lot warmer! My garage is colder than my fridge.

Re: Battery Charging

jifflemon,
three good questions.
How old is the battery? Don't know.
How often is the car used? Every two/three days.
What sort of journeys do I do? No more than ten (10) miles.
I'll just keep removing/charging/re-fitting after & before every trip.

Re: No Fuel Gauge

Update.
Replacement Info-centre supplied by Sylvia - many thanks Sylvia.
The cold weather meant it took a couple of days to install it.
Now it is installed and working I'm in info-overload - bags of lights and stuff. I love it!
Thanks for advice and info.

Re: Battery Charging

Update.
Found single-wire connector wasn't (connected).
Using all my knowledge of electrical circuits; I re-connected it and all is now good.
However, I think I need a new battery.
Thanks for all the info.

Battery Charging

The charging gauge in the dash of my 480 registers in, or very near to, the red sector, all the time the engine is running.
This is, I believe, not how it should be.
Can't find any info in the forum so it's a case of 'please, has anybody got any info/ideas?'.
Many thanks.

Re: Breaking last bits before scrapping

Forgot to add:
battery holding bracket. The fixed one mounted at the outboard side of the battery.
For some reason, it's missing from my car.

Re: Breaking last bits before scrapping

Lens covers from both DRL would be welcome. Also, how about a R/H driving lamp - the one next to the DRL. I'll take both L/H & R/H, if you'd rather sell the pair. And the rear fog-light could be put to good use. Availability and price inc postage, please. Or, I could pick up, if you're not too far f...

Greetings Jonas, I understand that your time is rationed and you've got other things to do. I was just wondering if somebody could take up (had taken up) the baton and could help. Thanks for the work you've already done and, if you do manage to get the DRL lens covers developed, you can be assured a...

Greetings Everybody, bit lost about who's doing what with 3D printed items. I could use the following 3D printed items: 2x repair kit for window operating mechanisms, 1x L/H & 1x R/H DRL lens covers - I like the look of the ones Optovox77 is developing. 6x door trim clips (the round ones).

Re: No Fuel Gauge

Apologies Jaster for not replying to your post earlier - not been near the car for a few days. Used the soldering-iron on all the pins, cleaned bulb connections then re-installed info-centre cluster - info-centre still didn't work. Oh, and now the L/H indicator light doesn't work even with a new bul...
