In fact, as they are to go in the floor of the Capri, I'll search for "bottom plug" and see what turns up.....
To coin a modern term, I suspect that might not be 'work safe' :)

Re: Water in footwell

That's a bummer Danny, but knowing your calm and powerful approach to problems I'm sure you will have it under control very quickly. In addition to Jason's sound advice above, water can come from lots of places but you would usually have a warning or can see it getting slowly worse, so for it to go ...

The negative side of forums is that you can never be quite sure how much experience a poster may have.
You soon get to find out about that though, it doesn't take long before a newbie will realise who the good guys are and that they know what they are talking about, such as Martin (Bug).

Re: Diff Oil change

Was such a bitch of a job just getting it off to be honest! Not much use to you now Danny I know, but I guess you could have used one of those fluid hand extraction pumps (which many use for the gearbox oil) and sucked the oil out from the filler hole, then just put fresh in although I think you wi...

Re: Adjustable Car Ramps

Yes just like yourself Steve, I've noticed all sorts of measurements thrown together! As you rightly say, the reviews are a good place to look, I have noted a few where the heights seem more accurate as well as on other sites. They do appear to be higher even when unjacked than the standard ramps, a...

Re: Adjustable Car Ramps

these, they potentially are a great idea but I was surprised the max height was only 12", From what I can gather, it's more than that, closer to 15" which is quite massive under the wheels, I cope quite easily with the standard 200mm ones. Specification here states 375mm (15") - https://www.amazon....

Re: Adjustable Car Ramps

I wouldn't take too much notice of the measurements stated, they seem to be all over the place! From the limited research I have done, 375mm approx. seems to be the max height of these.

Re: Adjustable Car Ramps

Thanks for the replies guys. Yes I think these are around 100mm or so longer than the traditional blue ones that's all. As regards to driving up them, with the normal ones I use a wooden lead-in ramp which works very well (think you might have seen them at some point Steve), nice gradual slope then....

Adjustable Car Ramps

Anyone had any experience with these? At around £120 for the cheapest pair on Amazon they seem good value and would make life much easier with the extra height.
