Re: Removal of Door Weatherstrips

You need to squeeze the splayed branches of clips 14 and 15 to release several clips per weatherstrip. Needless to say, this involves removing the door cards and membrane. The intermediate ones aren't too bad, but where a lock prevents direct access, a thesaurus of expletives may be useful. When rel...

Re: FS: 'Turbo' alloys

Just looked up the original eBay listing. If the photos are to be believed, they are genuine Rover, and do look the same as my own set. Seller photographed the part number (RRC112050):

Re: FS: 'Turbo' alloys

Apart from that [the nuts wont fit] they look exactly like R8 alloys! These all have some sort of T symbol on the outside of the rim adjacent to the valve. Moral of the story, always take a alloy wheel nut with you when purchasing a set of wheels. :mad If they're genuine, they'll have an RRCxxxxx p...

Are the tails of the front bumper both correctly hooked on their support buttons (which screw into the wings)?

The seat cloth - that tweedy material, is probably functional rather than stylish - it looks very hard wearing - probably harder wearing than the Rover material.
Probably more hard wearing than any trouser material too!

Re: FS eBay: 1992 216GSi Auto - Pearlescent Cherry/Tempest - 69k - Godalming

The one in Stroud lived most of its life in south Bucks, Chesham area. ISTR back in the depths of winter one similar for sale through a dealer in Watford. Wonder if those were one and the same? Some dramatic wording re: sill corrosion in its MoT history. https://www.keeperscars.co.uk/used-cars/rover...

Re: Use of thread locking compound (Loctite?) on suspension bolts

I did wonder why they'd cut a large circular groove right under the head, as it reduced the working diameter of the bolt and therefore it's strength. A sharp corner between the shaft and underside of the head is a no-no - it falls into the category of 'stress raiser'. Any imperfections in the regio...

FS eBay: 1996 216 5dr - Green/Tempest? - 57k - Trowbridge

Poorly listed as a 416 and only one, indistinct, photo - is it duotone? But reasonable asking price and no corrosion events on the MoT history.
£300 BiN, or offers.
