Re: Rover 216 s series alternator replacement

Unless you have already got one, I would suggest you don't commit to buying a new alternator until the wiring has been repaired.
The old one may actually still work when it has good wiring connected to it again.

Re: 1995 216SLI - impulse purchase!

The passenger's door lock barrel was deleted for 1994 model year if I remember correctly: the reason given at the time was that it enhanced security because many thieves would attack the lock barrel on the pavement side of a parked car. I would think there would have been a useful cost saving for Ro...

Re: How do you remove the gear knob on a 45/ZS

Up to late 2003, the gearknob was screwed on (it is the same as the R8, 25, Streetwise etc) but the latest cars had a gearknob that is literally pushed on to the end of the gearstick with a plastic tab that engages in a groove. After a few thousand miles of gearchanging, the car acquires its first r...

Re: Hellooooo just joined

:welcome Good luck with the (potential) purchase: I assume you have checked the MoT history? Carefully examine any welding that has been done and satisfy yourself that it is done to a good standard. Check the rest of the car for rust, too: door tops (and bottoms), windscreen surround, floorpans, bot...

Re: Original radio decoder?

I have used this company a few times over the years: https://www.dndservices.co.uk/ and have always been happy with the service. Search for Philips Rover on their website. There is a possibility your unit could have been changed over the years (I would guess it is a Philips/Rover R670 or R681) as th...

Re: Remote fob was it an option?

Is there a small dark 'lump' on your interior lamp lens? If so, your car probably had the infra-red fob when new: I am not sure if it is possible to get a replacement fob and have it coded to the car, but somebody on here will know :) (I think it has been discussed a few times, so it could be worth ...

Passenger b pillar there is a metal tab on it that has the paint and trim codes.

Then check it against this list:

Re: Hi Everyone

If the sunroof is not causing the headlining to get wet, the cause of your problem is likely to be where the drain hoses join a rubber outlet in the back corners of the boot. Withdraw the hose from the outlet, make sure the outlet is clear to drain out behind the rear bumper on each side and then re...

Re: Rover 25 Throttle Pedal (Spring Noise)

I think that if you give each hooked end of the spring a dose of WD40, the problem should go away :wink3 It would seem that one or both of the hooks is not moving smoothly in its hole and the vibration is echoing up the spring. I can't say it is anything I've ever encountered before on a throttle pe...

Re: Rover 416 Tourer

There are a few people around who can supply the code for yours: have a look on eBay (I think it has been discussed on this forum recently too, so you might be able...

Re: Rover 216 vdp sd3 project

I have heard that a perfect match for the original headlining used on Maestro and Montego (and therefore probably on contemporary 200 and 800 ranges) is no longer available, but Woolies can supply a fairly close alternative.
