Re: How do I fit a rear washer nozzle?

How do I remove the trim around the pillar? I've got halfway there with the window side but am having trouble with the boot seal side. I've tried prying it out with screwdrivers but fear breaking something

How do I fit a rear washer nozzle?

Jifflemon very kindly gave me a replacement rear screen wash nozzle as my current one is broken. The only issue is that I do not know how to fit it, and I have a horrible feeling I have to take the interior apart to do it.


Can anyone share their experiences with this?


Many thanks
Ben

Re: Next meeting

sounds good, but it will all depend for me on whether I pass my test and when the car goes into the bodyshop

Re: 480 Turbo for sale - £5500

Well MrH. Spot on. I have checked the plate and to my surprise the code is 311-1. Lavender Metallic. Just shows don’t always believe how the dealership describes the car! It’s only taken 30 years for me to discover the truth. Not trying to be difficult, but both Mr H AND the dealership are correct....

Re: 480 Turbo for sale - £5500

Looks very nice, but the price is a bit steep, I would say that's all the money


Are you sure it's S/G met? It doesn't look like it to me, I thought that was the colour of the launch cars that can be seen in Roberts video

Indeed, this car looks a lot like the elusive Lavender colour

Re: Full list of UK spec colours?

Hello knowledgeable folks, I can see from my ES VIN plate under the bonnet that the paint code is 318-1 https://i.imgur.com/6VBa30d.jpg Question is, how do I use this to order some paint for touch-up / minor respray purposes, and what else will I need (e.g. lacquer)? Any advice appreciated (especia...

It's an 87-88 model - I can assure you that despite what the seller says it won't have pretensioners...didn't fit them until 1993.

Mine seems to have those (or snapped off bits that look like them)

Perhaps it’s £495 for the car and £8000 for the digital clock?
With my desperation for one, I'd half consider that. But if you could take the rear lenses, clock or belt tensioners what would you choose?

Well its reassuring to see that his rear seats have the same discolouration as mine, and that the centre storage bin (rear) is also warped - I'm not alone

Re: Something a little different

That is a fine looking example of a very rare beast, Ben. Whilst it's not a car I would personally be interested in acquiring (especially not after adding a V50 just yesterday), I can - and do - certainly appreciate it for what it is :D My own Rover experience was with a couple of 600s back in the ...
