I've also contributed to this article from a traders perspective. Hopefully it will wake a few people up but I doubt it. I look forward to reading the finished piece.

Re: Sunroof

Is it the circular trim that fits around the handle or the piece that sits in the roof section and the handle folds up into it?

Re: A garage won't give me my money back.

If the good garage scheme is anything like Trust a Trader then they'll allow anyone on there, doesn't mean they're any good. I don't think the forum is the correct place for this kind of thing, yes, you'll get all kind of answers but there's only your side of things to base any answers on so they'll...

I'm glad that I read this as I was going to see the film. I won't be bothering now. Trust Hollywood to take something factual and fuck it up.

Re: Help buying 2.8

Hi guys. This is my first post so any help would be appreciated. I having been looking for a while now for a nice late Capri but most cars seem to have had 15 owners no history and badly looked after. I know this is a old car and what to expect but finding a good one seems difficult. I have however...

They would like a commitment for an initial ...

Re: Daily Driver In Danger - Mk3 Ford Capri

I would suggest getting the gearbox off first of all then work out the parts you will need. Once the box is off then all should become obvious. The clutches on 1.6 and 2.0 are different sizes so be sure to get the correct one. I can supply the parts if I know what you will be needing.

Re: Indicators PLEASE HELP!

I did a modified front end on a MK3 many years ago and I simply made up a couple of small brackets behind the front grille and mounted some small indicator units there. Until the indicators are actually working you don't really notice them behind the grille.

Re: My hot Capri

Have you checked the waterways through the inlet manifold? if they're blocked then you won't get any flow through the heater matrix. Why do folk seem to assume that simply slapping on an electric fan is the answer? if the rest of the cooling system is working normally then you don't need one.

Re: Emissions test...

If it's a 1980 then it should have the emissions tested, also as it's a V6 there should be readings done on both banks and the emissions combined to give the final reading.
