Re: Windscreen Washer Bottle Motors

Inner wing, if you turn the wheel full lock you can remover the couple of screws for the lower part of the arch liner that connects to the lower bumper. Peeling this back you can see the two motors. Hope that makes sense Ps wouldnt bother with the manual. Save yourself £15, unless its an old worksho...

Re: 54 plate Rover 25 facelift, heater only blowing cold air

Great news, Its a belt and braces approach to the rest, the water pump "sounds like" its due anyway, as does the inlet manifold gasket, hopefully gives you many more years of trouble free motoring, ps dont forget oil and filter :laughing2

Been happening a couple of days, can be driving along and the speedo will drop to no reading ( 0mph) then if I let off throttle and back on again when boosting, this will do this 10 times in 5 miles :laughing2 Literally off then on pretty much as soon as I press throttle. I have ...

Re: What to do with my 45

If the car does get stripped I would pay good money for the seats for my mk2 zs 180 :oops :sad

If of course this all goes wrong and you decide to scrap it.

Shop around for a good deal on that lot, if you can get another cambelt for say £10-£15 I would be inclined to fit that as you will be removing old one anyway, just my personal advice, although I can understand why you would re use. You should be able to tell how good the water pump is when you remo...

Re: 54 plate Rover 25 facelift, heater only blowing cold air

What about the thermostat?

Vinny

With the car now at say 14 years old I would imagine its due its 2nd change of belt (6years 1st lets say) so would do water pump aswell, whilst at it thermostat too and a flush
