Re: and today i have mostly been...

That's rather poor, I drove 800 miles to visit my parents in central France in my old 1984 2.0 porsche 924 and after working it out was getting 33-34 mpg

Re: Rear wiper problems

Just had the tailgate panel off and there's no relay or related wiring.

Anyone know where the relay board is?

Re: Worsening driving standards

This annoys me too, but on the other hand people do take it as it's my right of way so even if you were there first and part way around the obstruction I'm still coming through. Had some cock in a vectra nearly plough into me while I was passing a line of 6 cars parked on the road. I was passed the ...

Re: Rear wiper problems

Just tried a bsi reset but it didn't work. I'll check the relay next, I believe it's somewhere in the tailgate? I'll pull the carpet up too.

Rear wiper problems

Came out to the gtx this morning, turned the car on and the rear wiper started going on its own. After 5 or so seconds stopped but not in the correct place. This appears to happen every time the car is started. Has anyone come across this before?

Re: My GTX

Managed to find the source of the knocking this morning. Went into ecp but all they had was a starline on the shelf but for £8 I thought sod it i'll use it to eliminate them from list of things it could be. https://i.imgur.com/nppF9ST.jpg Anyway took it home and started to remove the drivers side li...

Re: Front end knocking

Thanks for the help, I went into ecp this morning to see what they had. All they had on the shelf was one starline link, but for £8 I thought f*ck it its cheap enough to use to rule out the that part. Anyway replaced the drivers side and it cured the knocking on that side, so I'll get browsing and o...

Front end knocking

I'm getting quite a loud knocking noise from the front end when on rough surfaces and going over speed bumps. I've had it up in the air but can't see anything worn or loose. Any one have an idea?

Re: My GTX

Well it's all back together, and what a difference. It feels like a different car, it picks up better, going up a steep hill near where I live I'd have to drop it down to second gear now it pulls up cleanly without having to drop a gear. It even sounds quieter and less rattly.

Re: My GTX

A bit more, quick mock up of the gasket as I can't get one before next week. Egr blank siliconed in place, also had to elongate the holes on the blank as they were to far spaced apart.

I'll make a neat one while the awful black stuff sets.

Re: My GTX

Well things with the gtx have never been straightforward and fitting the blank has been no exception. To start with one of the allen bolts was almost completely rounded off so was a sod to get off, then I couldn't get enough space to slide the blank in so had to remove the elbow. Wish I'd just left ...
