Spark plugs.

This may seem like a daft question but what length should the thread be? I have been looking to change the plugs and there appears to be two different types long and short shown for a 1600 laser. I currently have the long ones fitted but can remember many years ago changing the plugs on my dad's mk4...

Re: Almost done

When you put the armrest in did you put the top in first then turn it 90 degrees clockwise. Then put the two screws in, if that makes sense.

Re: Tapping noise

Yes it's a laser with just a gauge, should have said when oil pressure starts to go up after a couple of cranks.

Re: Tapping noise

Yes sorry I meant make,car has only done 53,000 miles so hopefully not wear.can get oil light to go out by turning it over for a bit before starting it and then there is no noise.
Cheers.

Tapping noise

Hi all

When starting from cold I get a slight tapping noise from the top end and then goes straight off within seconds once oil pressure gauge moves. Is this something to be concerned about or am I worrying over nothing?

Cheers Allan.

Re: Gear lever removal

Thanks for that Andrew never thought of that, is it just for noise reduction and does it go directly on top of the box.
