Re: So, today was the day...

Forgive me for being thick but if in the UK you have bright and dim DLR is it not supposed to be BAZ15D, 4/21 bulbs then?

I am interested in buying the LED we are talking about but they are single filament.

Sorry in advance :roll:

Re: So, today was the day...

I am confused, I am quite certain that I have BAZ15S bulbs for the DLR (orange indicators). Are BAZ15D for the white indicators version?

Fuel door fixed

Hi all

When the fuel door does not open AND before removing half the boot trim, spend a considerable amount of time trying to play with the cable tightener and swear a bit, make sure to check that the problem is not with the metal plate within the door housing (only 2 screws easily removed) :kill:

If you select "desktop version" of the Imgur website on your phone you can then upload pics and share them on the forum. Works........for now!

Did the oil change today and noticed that this pipe was pretty much completely undone. Seems to have cured the 500rpm idle.

I often cook things in water to loosen old glue - try hot rather than boiling first tho in case the plastic distorts. Leave in the hot water on very low heat at least 10 minutes.
Will try that, a bit of salt will probably make it taste better :)

Re: Tail light lense

Oven? Did not think of that but since it is all plastic I would be doubtful :)

I have a very old set beyond repair and would like to explore a few options.

Re: Front Splitter required

Splitters from WR are very good, they fit neatly and all the fixings match. They did the painting as well.

Re: Rear lights

I am not sure they were ever fitted, there is no sign of a previous gasket having been used at all and it seems that they were damaged during a shipping of sort a long time ago.

Car boot sale still comes up with some weird finds ;)

Rear lights

Right Here is the deal. I have just acquired a set of New (yet ironically damaged) tail lights, there was no time to let you know so I rushed and paid £300. I don't need them anyway but I am happy to flip them for what I paid. There was no postage so ideally I'd rather sell the pair to limit the cos...

Re: 480 Turbo running problem

Is the insane fuel consumption reflected in some data on the trip computer such as Range or Instant Consumption or Average?
