Re: Ball joint splitter

Have used the scissor type a few times with the back plate and disc still on, the last one I did was so seized I actually snapped the seperator though, even if you do rip the boot your local factors will have a selection that cost pennies, take the arm down and they will match it up

Re: I was taught a lesson today

Sound impressive :) The one I drove was an XR3i Cabriolet with the RS engine fitted. Apparently around 220 bhp is possible but he was advised the 170 was the best option, as the car was well set up at that with the mods you stated above......Very quick car :drive: Would like to see a pic of yours :...

Check the connection at the back of the speaker to make sure it's clean and tight etc I suspect there is a poor connection there causing your issue

There's one on ebay but it doesn't state which gearbox

Re: How Much!!

It would be interesting to know the back story behind this car. Obviously it's been bought from new with the intention of not using it, but who would do that? I'd also love to know how much the dealer paid for it! Andrew. Someone has obviously discovered time travel headed back and bought cars to s...

Re: Quick release steering wheel

I tried one of those slim ball bearing types as it was bought as a gift, it was on for 2 minutes because of the extra play I took it off and told the mrs to send it back, I have a splined type now and there is no play at all nice and solid with no wobbles so nice and safe the only downfall is it is ...

Re: Undersealing

If the car has been always undersealed then it is good to top up for a time. But at somepoint, it is best to look underneath and see what it really looks like. I reckon 10years is a good point to strip back and take a good look and then it makes you more worried as underseal can also hide rot where...
