Re: 214SLi 16v SPI - fuel filter orientation/charcoal/purge valve

Re: NEC 2018 (Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery)

Glad everybody enjoyed it :D

It is tiring but very worthwhile and it stands us in good stead for the next two very busy years, with SD3/R8 anniversaries in 2019 followed by HH-R/R3 in 2020.

Our feet won't touch the floor!

Guaranteed a short in the cables that’s perished over time. Most likely the tailgate section.
No tailgate on an SD3 but there is still wiring that goes to the number plate lights on the bootlid

Re: Want advice on replacing a R8 heater matrix

Your diagnosis seems to be correct if it only leaks when running hot water through it. I believe the main heater to be common between R8 and R3 but the newer R3 incorporates a pollen filter in its intake and therefore some differences must exist. The fact that the control panel is common is also a v...

Re: rover 45 cd problems

Might be worth disconnecting the power from it, either at the connector behind it or by a 'global reset' aka removing a battery lead.

Make sure you have the security code first though :laughing2
