Re: HELP: Rover 200 cab actuator central door locking!

Yes, definitely take the complete door latch, lock, actuator and motor with wiring from each door on the 418: you should have enough parts to work with then!

I think the main difference between the 4-door and 2-door version is the length of the wiring.

Re: HELP: Rover 200 cab actuator central door locking!

I had a similar problem several years ago and it was because a peg inside the lock actuator had sheared. The actuator and motor is a separate item from the door latch and lock, so I was able to dismantle it and use parts from another one to repair it. I think you would probably be able to use parts ...

Re: Sales recommendations

The problems you will find with trying to sell without an MoT are: People will assume that you know there is something wrong with it that will cost a fortune to put right People will assume that the MoT has been allowed to lapse because there is a running fault on the car (ie head gasket) and that i...

Re: 1989 216 no spark

OK, it's a while since I last played with an S-series but here is what I know/can remember: The distributor is completely empty, as far as low tension components is concerned. A rotor arm is attached to the end of the camshaft and it just directs the spark received from the coil to each spark plug i...

Re: Sales recommendations

You did the right thing in offering it here first, as there is always a possibility that one or more of our members may be looking for something specific. OK, in this instance, nobody is wanting a silver 214 5-door, but that's just the way it is: if you tried again in a month's time things could be ...

Re: Dailying an R8 or 45

I have been running Rovers as daily drives since 2005: a great way of spending my company mileage allowance on treats instead of depreciation! 214 SEi (ran to 201,000 miles), 420 Tourer, (R3) 220 SDi diesel, several 25 diesel, a couple of 1.4 petrol 25s and a ZR diesel. Oh, and a few months with a 1...

Re: 1989 216 no spark

Do you know if you have a 12v (ish) supply to the coil when the ignition is turned on? Also, check all of the fuses carefully: it is very likely that the main 12v supply to the ECU is fused and if that fuse has blown, the ECU will do nothing. Is it a carburettor-fed engine, or fuel injection (EFi)? ...
