Re: REFERENCE SHOCK ABSORBERS

My question is: These with the Ref: RND 106010 that I have located in a scrap yard are any of those models? {I have been told that it is from a ZR 160). I have searched for the part number RND106010 just with Google. I'm getting a lot of references that say they are for the 200/25 2-litre diesel mo...

Re: Spare ECU Spec Advice Needed

Thanks saved me making a mistake there, very grateful Will look out for correct spec Ecu do you have a photo of the potentiometer?

Re: Spare ECU Spec Advice Needed

You do need to match the part code exactly to the one you have, so the R00 version will be no good. For reference: The Honda part codes all begin with "37820" for the R8 (and Honda Concerto) Then: PP4 - SOHC 216 PP5 - DOHC 216 Then: E01: Non-cat, manual gearbox E51: Non-cat, automatic gearbox G01: C...

Re: What have you found in your car

Back in 2016 i had to replace the drivers side wing on my Ex's Rover 25. Upon removal i found a quite healthy seedling growing out the dirt in the bottom corner. I guess this was why the paint colour was called Arbour Green! Oh - if we're going towards the natural occurrences of stuff in a Rover, t...

Re: What have you found in your car

Not me but I think someone in the club found a rear view mirror in the plenum chamber on a 200 series. We postulated that the person who left it there was using the mirror to "see behind" the bulkhead panel, perhaps whilst fixing the wiper linkage. I've only ever found the odd copper coin in mine :sad

Re: Strange electrical fault...!

That’s my plan-I’ve checked the earth on the front panel; this and the earth cable have zero resistance. By the looks of the wiring diagram this one is the most relevant to the alternator, but for the sake of 20 minutes I’m going to remove the headlamps and check the earth points below those, too. ...

These can be found by choosing to the "Cars" menu on our home page. Then click on any of the "models covered" o...

Re: Cheeky alarm!

The last one - an AGM Banner on my better half's daily (25 1.4) - lasted 3 years & nearly 6 months. Not too bad even not the best performance in the world, but the car is doing lots of short or very short journeys. I purchased a Varta C6 for my car, which is the right one for the British (I think) ...

Thank you for the technical explanations.
Nevertheless I hope that I'll not have to disconnect the battery so soon. Fingers crossed! :D
I do it all the time when the car is stored. The reconnect plus 4 lock-button pushes has worked every time so far - and on two fobs as well. Don't panic!

Re: Cheeky alarm!

But what I don't understand is why the alarm waited 5 long days after the fitting of the new battery before reacting?! :S :blink I don't know either, but basically the 5as system rolls the code on after a battery disconnect, so after reconnecting unlock the drivers door with the key, then press the...

Re: Door vents - never seem to blow anything

They are part of the demister ducting, so only work when the output knob is set to demist. …when the windscreen symbol is selected as the target for the air... I didn't actually know this. I nearly always have the heater set to windscreen anyway as I find the heating effect gentler rather than havi...

Re: 1994 Rover 220 GSi - Project (of sorts)

In addition to this, has anyone ever attempted this before? either on an R8 or another car, and would they have any advice? Try a Terraclean (https://www.terraclean.co.uk). Worked for me. A couple of flat spots during acceleration, though this was on a Honda engine 216. I had a dyno test on a Mahle...
