Re: Windscreen Washer Bottle Motors

When you operate the washers (front or rear), does it still set off the wipers for 3 or 4 wipes? If so, then you can assume the washer circuit going out of the switch and through the timer unit is ok and therefore the problem is more likely to be reservoir and pump-related. If not, then suspect a fa...

Re: T-series engine cooling fan inoperative

According to the Rover electrical manual, the normally aspirated and non-aircon T-series uses the same fan circuit as the 1.4 and diesel versions. (The turbo versions and cars equipped with aircon have a much more complex circuit controlled via the MEMS ECU). Annoyingly, it doesn't mention the locat...

Re: 5AS immobilizer repair/ by pass

To get the immobiliser bypassed or to code a replacement 5AS unit to the car, you will need a specialist with Rover Microcheck or Testbook. Alternatively, somebody with 'pscan' and the pre-OBD test harness. However...........I have had a look at the circuit diagrams in the Rover workshop manual and ...

Re: Rover 220 turbo water pump questions

I did mine around 10 years ago (which is why I haven't replied to your thread before: I can't remember exactly how I did it) but I definitely did not need to remove the Lambda sensor.

Re: steering rack bushes?

Can we assume that you have recently had the car MoT'd and that no play was found anywhere in the steering? Have you had the wheel alignment (tracking) set since you did all of the suspension work? I ask because if the wheels are toeing in too far, it will tend to dull the response of the steering. ...

I won't be able to go myself, but if a group does want to book in with you, please let me, John or Jeremy know and we will try to lend you a banner and possibly the flag if you want them.
