Re: Window glass fell into the door - help

When you're re-fitting the glass into the slider mechanism again, make sure you grease up the plastic roller and the runner part at the bottom of the glass to try and avoid it happening again!

Cheers

Re: £30K 3.0S

I'd be tempted to agree with Paul... If I save £20k on a car that also looks pretty decent, I have 20k in my pocket to fix any problem that might crop up with it if something is a little of with it I saw someone post the £30k car on Spacebook and everyone was raving about what a good price it was! :...

Re: Capri Part

Pretty sure it's a rear infill panel, goes where the rear number plate usually is

In terms of value is worth what someone i willing to pay for it... it's a personal preference thing more than anything else.
I think that new ones are sold at around £50

I also have the same problem on one of mine, I found that it was the boot latch as well which kept spinning so doesn't shut unless lined up properly

Re: Door speakers

I still do the same thing of having the fader set all the way to the front (unless I get passengers in the back seats which is a rarity) otherwise the new radio has to be cranked up to a ridiculous volume of around 40 odd or more when its evenly split between front and rear. I just left it in place ...

Re: Door speakers

Mine is on its' original rear speakers which are dreadful. Did the new 4" units make much of a difference and did you need to change the way they were fitted under the small shelves ? https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4516/38688829912_ccaecac349_z.jpg Speaker by Danny Hassall You just need to cut...

The Ford Cougar pretty comprehensively answers that question good sir.

Re: FWD CAPRI ANYONE?

I don't think a FWD capri would have been a flop.... Like Escorts, starting off RWD and then became FWD, and they kept making them FWD for 24years! Paul's point about GTI's and XR3I's outselling other RWD cars at the time shows that its not all about drivetrain that motivates people to buy... Like t...

Re: Antifteeze

Thanks for the reply. I changed the cap but it's still leaking. It seems to be leaking out the top of the radiator, right along the top of the radiator. It seems to stop after the car heats up. I think I may have over filled it possibly. It certainly never leaked before i changed the antifreeze. A ...

Re: Recaro badges

Hi, Reattaching them with any great success could be difficult. You could always try gluing them in position if you don't fancy forking out for replacements. Andrew. Not a bad shout, rather than pull the pins out and try gluing them back on then pushing it in, just glue the badges straight onto the...
