Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

What does make me wonder if the owner of the Teala was showing people and say it did hit another car I wonder who would be in the wrong because there was no driver . I have read that in London they will have driverless Cabs by 2021 . I thought you need eyes up your bum with the people and bikes it’...

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

But if it all goes Pete Tong :doh: The Tesla will end up stuffed in the railings...or worse. I prefer to have control of the car too. Although self parking does make a good show, at the end of the day it's just an expensive gimmick. Andrew. :agree: Call me old fashioned, but anyone with a driving l...

Re: Steel Wheels

I wish you were a bit nearer Andy, I'd grab them off you in a flash to put them on my 3.0S while it's being worked on. The tyres on the current alloys are so knackered that they go flat 2 days after blowing up. I didn't want to get the rims re-furbished until the car is nearly finished. Ho Hum. I'v...

Steel Wheels

I have 4 x 14" wheels with tyres, taken from a MK4 Escort but will fit other models. I had them on my Sierra last winter when garaged. Wheels good for age **No Trims or Wheel Nuts Included** Tyres hold air but are old with some cracks, so I would only recommend them for moving a car around priv...

Assume it's the windings on the sender that are damaged in that area....Just going to keep it above 1/4 tank to be safe. Sorry to hear you have an issue with your sender Andy. When I had mine repaired the first time, my electrician mate soldered a broken winding & I had exactly that result. Rea...

Re: Fuel gauge now working

My gauge appears to sometimes fall off the scale (as if ignition is off) or work when it wants to, when it gets to around 1/4 tank. As I knew I would have it running when doing a few small jobs last week, I took some petrol cans to the garage and got 10 litres of petrol and put it in, and it's now r...

Ah yes, thanks Nick. Like yourself, I have only ever used it on the closest lock.

Tightest slot on the Capri, but used the middle slot on the Sierra :wave:
