Re: Horn failure after COM 2000 repair

So does this mean this was the issue all along?
If so at least you now have a spare Comms unit :cheesy:

Re: Rear handbrake adjuster jammed full on (cant move Car)

I think it's possible to push the whole adjuster sideways towards the centre of the hub via the inspection hole.
I believe I may* have done this while blindly aiming for the adjustment cog.....

Re: New 'stricter' MOTs...

My T4 is due an MOT six weeks ago :oops: and it smokes like a bugger.... I'm kind of looking for ways around the emission requirement as there is no way it's as clean as it was when it left the factory. I may accidentally leave some tape over the sticker in the engine bay, if indeed there is one the...

Re: N75 valve on 2.2 DW12 2.2 HDi engine

Hmm, okay - I'm starting to clutch at straws now.. If the vacuum system is okay ( not sure what a smoke test is and how this works ) and the swirl flap diaphragm is good, then it could be the pipes are the wrong way round. The swirl rod should pull back the little ball/socket affair on the top right...

Are there any fault codes that pop up when the car flat-spots?

Re: Immobiliser activated, car won't fire

My friend David had the same issue after his Coupé was parked in an airport parking lot for 3 weeks.... His carpet was bone dry, but we pulled nearly 2 gallons of water out from underneath..!! His Dad soldered all the wires ( he did send me a picture of the offending immobiliser wire but I can't fin...

Re: Immobiliser activated, car won't fire

Hmm, I suspect you have a water ingress issue... Check the drivers footwell for water - it may be dry on top but a reservoir underneath ( where some major connectors are ) If there is any sign of dampness then maybe the car will sort itself out when bone dry, otherwise it's a PP2000 and PIN code job...

Re: humming noise

Also, next time you are driving along and you can hear the noise - gently take up the slack on the handbrake. If the noise is still there then you can eliminate the handbrake shoes leaning against the disc as the issue... As Jasper5 says, it sounds like a bearing, but check the tyres - also feel for...

Re: Fuel (diesel) woes.

Yours is the exec, so I think the 2 buzzing things in the engine fuse box are the heated seats relay and blower relay... The fuel pressure regulator is on the rear of the pump, held on with 2 torx bolts. There are 2 o rings and a filter(sometimes!) on the end. Definitely get PP2000 up and running, y...

Hi, sorry I missed this post...
I felt sure the front middle fixing was a 10mm bolt.

Re: Horn failure after COM 2000 repair

Is it possible to wire directly to the battery, with an inline fuse?
If you are only using a push button horn it can be mounted anywhere you like..
