Re: Want advice on replacing a R8 heater matrix

yes you will need to take the dash out for access. You will also need a swear jar as you'll be able to buy a new car by the time you finish getting the pipes off the engine bay side. There is enough spare to just chop the pipe off if you don't want a new car :laughing2 The hardest job is the control...

coolant temp sensor

Check your fuel intake pipe for leaks and around the seam of the fuel tank

clean throttle body and may e worth a fuel filter.

Wonder if the cam belt is a tooth out. That would cause timing-related and valve clearance-like issues.

But would sounds like a tank

Re: Idle speed in traffic

my thought was the more you are stationary you are not really charging the battery and if you are using all of the above-listed items, the battery could have been running low so the car gave enough revs to keep a charge.

Re: Rimmers CS gone down hill.

I can confirm I got my money back... :mad Not from rimmers but from PayPal, fairly easy to get the case won in my favour as they never bothered to respond to any of the comments posted.
