Re: 26th October Mini Meet Lincolnshire Wolds

Thanks Sylvia for the hint on the rear hatch seal.

Guessing its the seal in the picture?

Anything else worth grabbing if avaiable? Not sure on compatibility between models.

Re: 26th October Mini Meet Lincolnshire Wolds

Marc Water in a rear foot well will almost certainly have come in via the boot and run forwards (unless you had your window well open in the rain?). First off check the boot carpet because chances are it's saturated underneath...if it is, then I would also recommend taking that back seat out becaus...

Bulbs for instruments

Hi all, I'm looking at replacing the bulbs in a few dash instruments as most seem to have died. The oil pressure/voltage dial cluster uses 3off 966326-1 according to the parts book (which is the same as those used on in the majority of the info. cluster). I'd just like to confirm its this type befor...

Re: 480 on eBay

Can see the CAT badge now! Couldn't see it on my phone.

I didn't realise the 1.7 ever had a cat. I assumed the 1.7 was dropped for emissions reasons and the 2.0 was when the cat was introduced.

What's a 1.7 with cat and auto like to drive? Never tried a 480 auto (not sure I want to either!!).
