Re: Dehumidifier

I am very lucky in that my garage is in the basement of a block of flats and the heating pipes for the flats pass through the garages. This gives just enough heat to stop it being too cold, takes the edge off it to an extent. I've also put two old carpets down on the floor (thanks to having a carpet...

Re: Fuse box queries

For the sake of the cost of new fuses (pennies) I replaced them all a few years ago. Several were the wrong rating and most were very fragile, which caused issues.

Re: Horn Location

Doesn't this earth via a bolt into the valance? Might be worth checking that. I seem to remember having an issue which was cleared up by cleaning up the connection.

as it's not far from the battery could check it by putting 12v across it from the terminals with a bit of wire

Re: The pleasure of motoring..

I see lots of dozy motorists going around at night with no lights on except the permanent on front sidelights - nothing on the rear. Is it because they assume the car will do it all for them?

Re: How to remove glass

I believe that windscreens are still available. I had a chip repaired a couple of years ago and, out of curiosity, the chap looked up the availability on their system. They could get one next day if required in a number of different tints etc. Apparently, even if they ever do run out of stock entire...

Re: maintenance

It is beggers belief the state that some folk drive around in. The number of folk who go around with basic things such as lamps out (very easily noticed and very easily fixed in 3 minutes) astounds me.

Re: Late starting heater

I had a similar odd issue last year after the garage changed my clutch, heater motor would start up when the car war warmed up. Couldn't make head nor tail of it, then noticed an earth strap disconnected. May be worth checking these.

Re: MOT Exemption

Select your post office wisely. Some don't deal with it, you'd need to find a crown office not a sub office, and another one I went to didn't know what vehicle excise duty was!

Only the royal borough of K&c.

Re: Cover or storage?

Which council area are you in? I rent a garage which is expensive, but luckily 2 minutes from my flat. It's quite fancy as it's an underground parking area with garages off it, so a decent space, with heating from the flats above. But a 15 minute walk will probably be annoying after aa while and tem...
