Re: 216 1.6 k cabriolet drained battery after driving

When you say the battery has gone flat, do you mean that it is so flat it will not operate the headlamps at a decent level of brightness, or is there just not enough to turn the starter motor fast enough to start the engine? I had a 'flat battery' problem on a 214 several years ago and the cause was...

Re: 216 GTI donor car

Glad to see you have found something, John. Are there any major differences in metalwork around the engine bay between K-series and D-series shells (and T-series, for that matter) or is it just a case of swapping subframes and bolting the engine and gearbox mounts into existing fixing points in the ...

Re: Stolen!!!

Has to be either joyriders or banger racers, I would think.

Sadly, early R8s have no better security than many other cars of the 1980s :sad

Re: Rear window demist

Check the two spade connectors (one at each side of the window): if they are dirty or corroded, that will cause a high resistance and reduce the amount of current that can flow. Be very careful doing this, as the connectors can come adrift from the window glass if they are pulled carelessly! Also ch...

Re: Indicator steering auto off

If it is only happening on one side, I would think that it would be a worn or broken part inside the stalk assembly. If you decide to get a replacement stalk, make sure you buy one for a non-airbag car (I have noted from other posts that your car is a 1991!) as there is a difference between the way ...

Re: Rover 416 abs automatic hatchback model parts

Not sure what Honda's "equivalent" car (and its model year) is for the HH-R, hence why I was searching by engine code on Ebay. At least some sellers recognise D16Y3 for 96-97MY HHRs and tell you they have the correct CV joint. Interestingly, some of those listings just say 96 to 99/00 as if it's ju...

Re: Rover 416 abs automatic hatchback model parts

Hope this isn't a daft question, but would the joint (not the whole shaft) from an R8 of similar spec fit?

Re: 216 grey bumpers

I used to use the Autoglym stuff on the grey bumpers of the 214 SEi I ran as a daily drive over 10 years ago: it worked well but needed a fresh treatment every 2-3 months (I was driving around 1500 miles per month and the car was never garaged). And more recently I have used it on the black bumper t...

Re: Blower/heater issue

I am fairly sure that cabin filters were never fitted to the R8 (unless anybody with an aircon-equipped car knows any different?)

Re: Which things will kill our cars? Common faults?

I would add a spare steering lock and ignition switch (I think it was discovered in another thread recently that earlier switches are not interchangeable with later ones), brake servo and fuel pump.
Amongst your spare relays, have you got a fuel pump relay? (The brown one).

Re: Looking for a rover 216 rear windscreen

:welcome

It is likely that you will need to buy a secondhand tailgate complete with the windscreen and then get your windscreen fitter to transfer the screen to your tailgate.

Roughly where are you located?
