Re: rear seat belts mk3

Hi all! Does anyone know of alternative rear seat belt reels and straps/stalks that fit the mk3? I cant seem to find them (ebay has had the odd ones but they seem expensive for a mouldy old belt!) Has anyone found an alternative? Does their orientation matter? Mine is an 85 but didnt come with them...

Re: Time

Time is a weird thing. I restored a complete car 10 years ago. It took nearly 3 years but when I look back I wonder how I did it. But like others have said its just steps at a time. Some will be small but even something like polishing a headlight relay gave me satisfaction of a bit more done. Its ob...

Re: Fitting Superflex TCA Inner Bushes

This pic was removing a bush but putting them in is the same set up - the smaller socket should push the bush through more or less to the degree that it is starting to go too far though. Release the pressure slowly and the bush should stay put!

Re: Fitting Superflex TCA Inner Bushes

Is there any possibility that they are not the right bushes? As Andrew says, some pictures might help us.

Re: Trouble Bleeding Brakes following MC Rebuild

Sounds like fluid isn't coming out of the master cylinder. If you have a helper to hand I would disconnect a caliper input pipe and get them to press the brake pedal to see if any fluid comes through

Re: Capri spotted on tv

The other half called me in to the room to see a nice red MkI in the tv show Dalgleish last night which I had decided to give a miss - there was a nice E type in the same scene. Even the other half thought it was the best bit of the program. Keeping clear was a wise move on my part it seems!

I forgot Olly, the kit comes with a new diaphragm for the bottom of the unit. I used a general gasket sealant on that as it appeared that the original was probably sealed .

You can reduce the picture size first if you have some software to do it - there's free stuff out there, or see here

Re: M16 brake calipers

I've split M16 and Princess calipers without problem. The surfaces need to be clean, the bolts really tight (I hold them in a vice to do it) and use new O rings. Should be OK then.
