Re: Screen washers

OK Ta,
I'll try pulling the pipes off the front jets and purging 1st.
Or even blowing back with an airline.

Screen washers

I have reduced pressure on the fronts and when I squirt the rear it comes out the front as well.
Is this likely to be electrical or plumbing?
Had a quick look but it's all buried under the tank and everything is wet anyway.

Re: Engine oil

Blimey that is reasonably priced.
I'm a bit sceptical on this semi vs fully synth thing.
Is fully synth really best for boring road Diesels or is it fashion driven?

The usual rule applies: anything aftermarket is immediately suspect.
I fitted 2 Chinese Ebay USB sockets in the Connect.
One was continually warm and drawing double the other so I replaced it but they will do the battery if left too long.

Re: Fuse panel image

Found the long lost owners manual.

Fuse panel image

In the 10 years I've had the car I've never had fuse problems. Cars now blowing dipped beam bulbs and now it would seem a fuse. Haynes manual has a drawing for a 'Passenger fuse panel' But all I can find is a small one N/S in the engine bay which I assume is engine management. And a larger panel ove...

Re: Dashcam recomendations

Thanks for that, £74 for a grade A, or £88 for a new boxed one from UK stock (with a UK address & phone No.)
None include the hardwire kit, but I'm wondering what you get with the hardwire kit that you don't cut by cutting the cigarette lighter plug off and finding a switched feed?
