Re: MK3 rear screen

I've wondered this before too. You can still get it done and you can even get a kit to do it yourself -

Re: Wheely excited....

let me know how the car handles and is parking up any easier. The narrower the tyre the easier the steering is at low speeds. One of the first things I did on my car was change the tyres back to standard 185's. It made a very noticeable difference, from being a right pain to park up to having no wo...

you always discuss things in a reasonable manner and we come to an amicable conclusion. Cheers Martin :) wander off to pastures new. I will be sad to finally close the last chapter of my Capri life, but things change and eventually we get too set in our ways to change with them. I shall miss all th...

Are you asking what type of paint you should buy to use for your repairs? Just trying to clarify in the hope of seeing some answers :)

Re: Car feels weird lol

I'm not trying to be derogatory at all. Fair enough Martin, I wasn't suggesting that you were, just that there's been many such comments, in general, which always does surprise me as I see Ford as being one of the greatest car manufacturers ever. And most everyone here is in love with a Ford which ...

Re: Car feels weird lol

This story of cars being the last on the production line getting all sorts of crap fitted to them is a myth! I'm glad you posted that , it's good to know :) I've said something similar on another thread. If Ford changed manufacturing parts then I believe it was for a reason, such as R & D, and ...

Re: Car feels weird lol

I think the Kilen number is 622000. I'd check it further if you can though, but Googling Kilen 622000 shows a few options for sale. Your local motor factors would most likely get them also, mine got the Kilen coil springs for me, they were not expensive, especially if they let you have them at trade...

Re: Car feels weird lol

i'm always wary with eBay car parts. Very wise, you are right to feel like that, there are a lot cheap items but when you actually receive them you can see why! If someone on here recommends an ebay item (or seller) it is usually ok though as they would have had something and know it's good. The fo...

I have no experience of them, but I wo...

Re: Car feels weird lol

Personally, if it is the rear springs which are the issue, I would change them like for like, which with your car, is most likely multi-leafs. yeah i may do but is the only reason for that originality? That's part of it, but it's possible that the ride height might alter slightly, someone else will...

Re: Car feels weird lol

Later Lasers were finished off using whatever was left on the shelf. Isn't that just supposition though Martin? Perhaps the R & D at Ford purposefully changed such components (and sometimes changed them back again), as car manufacturers do. That seems more feasible than a large major corporatio...

Re: U bolts

You have to be careful when buying new car parts on ebay, a lot of cheap items are incredibly poor quality.

I would try CapriGear (you can PM him on here or phone 01507 343148), or try the Capri Club or Tickover, both have online shops.

Should be the case yes, as it is non interference, so the car would simply just stop. Why don't they make all cars like that :)
