If someone 'grabs' you...

Re: intermittant wiper relay

Until today I believed that the 480 didn't have an intermittent front wipe function. As on my car it is either on or fast. I don't know if it's a fault with the switch on the throttle cable like mentioned in this thread or if its the stalk. The reason I think it might be the stalk is the there are ...

Re: Central door locking

surely, you only need to contact the microswith on the back of the drivers door lock barrel to activate the original locking. leave everything in place. just relay that microswitch from the remote control box, momentarily making contact as if the drivers door key is turned.

Re: Front brake drag on one side...

sounds like the caliper is getting siezed/stiff. why its important tp be bothered to change the brake fluid every couple of years, it hydroscopic (means it absorbs water) corrodes the piston bores from inside.
