Re: allbrit

Unipart Dealers used to have this information on a CD. One problem was that Unipart part codes were used in many cases, with no cross-reference to Rover numbers. Another issue these days, if you found a copy, might be that the data engine required Windows XP. Though VirtualBox would allow such a vin...

Re: Heated rear screen

I believe the HRW is cancelled when the ignition is turned off. Maybe a low battery could simulate this condition to the MFU?

Re: Front indicator fitting misalignment

You mentioned a shunt. These internal wing stiffeners do easily deform during these events. It would be worth taking the other side out and comparing the fixing points for symmetry. The headlamps have a small peg which locates in a hole in the same plate that the indicators are bolted to, so if one ...

Re: Will this repair kit be suitable for my 1994 214i cabby

Perhaps the seller would do you a special kit with both sizes of bearings in? Although you would have one left over, you would have the reassurance that you could complete the job. It may even be that your particular fault does not involve the bearings. From what I can find out, bearing 140120 is fo...

Intriguing that someone put a 89-92 'short indicator' front wing on.

Re: 414 Heater control valve

It seems the H-HW valve is a rotary type thing like a domestic gas supply man bits, whereas the XW ones were a simple sliding gate valve.
Perhaps the actuating lever has disconnected from the rotary element inside?

Re: Replacement Wheel Nuts for a 2005 45 GSi

There are stocks of solid genuine Rover alloy wheel nuts - item 12 on this page: https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-GRID003103 I observe that these are spherical seats, not the coned seats I would have expected. Are there Rover alloys in both seat 'camps' then? It would be useful to have a cross-refere...

Well, it's a good sign, that XPart still know the whereabouts of the tooling!
Hope the same applies to the R8.

Re: Rover 416 abs automatic hatchback model parts

ABS does complicate the problem I suppose. I noticed on the parts this thread has come up with that the ABS ring is present on all of them. I've always thought this should be the default for aftermarket manufacturers as the part will fit every car and the ring doesn't matter on a car without ABS. I...

Re: Blower/heater issue

The foam gaskets may have disintegrated with age, so you might want to source some foam sheet in preparation.
I used expanded polythene rather than polyurethane on my R8 early dash.
