Door speakers

Can anyone tell me what size are the original factory door speakers in a Laser? They're probably the same as 2.8i and other models factory fitted with door speakers. Haven't got the door cards off at the minute but if they're as bad as the rear ones then I'm going to renew the lot. Not worried about...

The ebay scammers are out again.

Nice looking 2.8i for £4000. Only 112000 miles on the "cock" says the ad!

Re: 2.8i Special bits

Why don't you just fit a K&N panel air filter to your existing box? Will give better breathing whilst keeping the car standard looking. Plus they only need a clean once in a blue moon rather than replacing every service. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/K-N-Air-Panel-Filter-VW-Golf-GTI-MK2-1-8-Jetta-A...

Re: Racks steering

I've looked at Tickover spares and the Capri club and they don't state that their racks are model specific so I guess the racks are all the same. Don't know if there may be ratio differences between them or not but it seems they will physically fit.

Re: Important ! Ref fuel tanks

Magnum's website quotes £210 for a carb models tank and £240 for an injection model. CCi are quoting the same for members.

That takes the shine off it a bit.

Re: Leaky carb

It shouldn't be leaking at the throttle spindles as by the time the mixture gets down that far it will be sucked into the manifold. More likely is that your needle valve in the float chamber is suspect or the float height incorrect. Your Haynes manual will show you how to fix that. Renew the top gas...

I bought one. A ropey second hand one. Does anyone have a link or anything to any useful info on how to refurbish these power steering racks. I know you can buy seal kits but is the a good procedure to a refurb that I could follow. I found some youtube vids of people who didn't know what they were ...

Did you use the same dye that I used on doing up my wheel?

Re: Shiny and new!

Is that a DGAS rather than a DGAV carb? Just noticed the twin flap opening gears and the mixture screw in the carb base.

Does it make the pinto run better?

Re: Tickford Capri

If they had built the Tickford without the hideous bodykit it would be so much more appealing to me. As they stand and especially in white I call them Tackfords. The standard MK3 shape, even as a 1.3L, is beautiful and I don't think any of these body kits help in any way. Ideal Capri - give me a 3.0...

Re: Want to sell my Capri but not sure what it's worth.

As said above, sorry to hear about your bereavement. It looks a really nice example from the photos you have provided but people will need more details such as mileage and extra pictures of interior and engine bay. You may get more, or make it more easy to sell, if you were to get an MOT done on it....

Re: £15000 laser on eBay

There's two Brooklands 280's on ebay for around or less than the price asked for this plus, as someone else said, quite a few nice 2.8i's and 3.0S for similar money. The other Laser that sold for big money was 4500 miles, not 47,000. Still, if people are going to keep asking these inflated prices it...
