Got some parts up on ebay again.
Anyone from CS is welcome to make an offer as i need to shift as much as possible. Will also be able to bring to Surrey RR day this Saturday if anyone is attending
Also have some...
So had a quick search and some old topics have come up but looking for some products to use as a first wash, polish and wax of my new car when it arrives
From looking around its safe to say that cleaning a brand new car isnt as daunting as it sounds and the paint should be fine to work on...
So i picked up a matched upper and lower inlet manifold last weekend and planning on fitting them this weekend.
Anyone know what gaskets i'll need? is there one from the head to the lower and one from the lower to the upper?
Links, part numbers would be great.
So not sure if this has been happening a while but Ibe recently had the rear seats out of the to move some stuff so can probably hear it more.
When turning right or going round a roundabout it seems to have a clunking knocking noise when it's loaded up.
Also seems to do it when braking...
I'm sure this had probably been solved before but can anyone shed some light..
So up until recently my car has been taking a few turns of the key to start. Then one say it started hesitating around 2k under load. Pulled up to park up and it cut out.
So fast forward a couple of weeks to...
So this morning, jumped in the car started fine, driving fine... all good i thought.
About 2 miles down the road in slow moving traffic (about 15mph) i was going along ok and just giving it light throttle then all of a sudden it jerks/hesitates then fine again. Does this a couple of times so i...
Had a quick search and it seems pretty straight forward
Bumper off, grill off, bonnet catch off, front cross member off, couple of clips on the aircon pipe and some joiners on the pipes on the rad then out
Anything I'm missing? Easy enough to do myself with basic tools or should I take it to...
So today I finally got round to wiring in my ph2 analogue heater panel for my ph1 to ph2 dash conversion.
All seems to work ok.
Also took the opportunity to use the ez chill air con regas we have to refill it.
All went well however it doesn't seem all that cold.
I can hear the aircon...
Do they need specific top mounts?
I understand that they can run with OE top mounts but if going for PMS top mounts then they need to be specific :S
Eventually i want to go for PMS top mounts and strut brace but it wont be till a while after getting the coilovers, is this going to be an issue?
Hopefully this isnt a big issue however the car has developed a fairly loud clunking/knocking noise from the rear when braking at slow speeds
At first I thought it was the driveshaft but now it's louder it's certainly coming from the rear.
I can't hear any usual bearing noise under...
Well i noticed today that my 172 seems to be bit slower at initial pick up when the car is up to temp than it does from cold. not even giving it a thrashing when cold just really noticeable when pulling out of a junction etc
Is this fairly normal is something a miss?
Standard air intake so...
Hi all that have done this conversion.
So I've read pretty much every thread i can find on the conversion and it would seem that there is no definitive way of using all the ph2 switching.
Somehow there must be a way to...
Has anyone retro fitted a flush mount usb connector yet.
Got an Aux and USB input on the back of my HU but want to flush fit them both.
Probably follow the guide in the guides section for the 3.5mm one but wondering if anyone has done a usb version as yet??
So I've had a search and found that to fit the 197 wheel an m20 spacer is needed?? (thickness not mentioned anywhere though)
Also some splicing of wires is needed and a guide is on cliov6.net.. Although that's all i've found, no guide on here though.
So my question is, seeing as the ph1 172...
Pretty sure this has been covered many many times but could do with clearing some thing up
Car keeps refusing to start first time, only started happening end of last week. turn it over as per usual and used to start first time on first turn of the key.. give it a few trys and nothing. It cranks...
Right a bit of background... I sold my xbox 360 late last year as i got into pc gaming again, in the mean time i just used my ps3 as a media streamer and blueray player, long story short i had to buy a new motherboard (Asus maximus vii ranger) which had real issues connecting to the ps3 as a...
So im currently on BT infinity top spec package and tempted to add on BT Vision, mainly so i can catch up on some BT sport other than on my phone or PC.
Main question is.. do i have to use the old style RF connection or will my Sky dish and coax cable be alright? thing is where i live its in a...
