Re: Handbrake adjustment

The state of components plays a large part in the how many clicks the handbrake has to be setup with. On a previous Capri I found I always needed it adjusted to at least 6 clicks to avoid the shoes rubbing against the drums when the handbrake was off. Mine now works perfectly on 3 clicks. The differ...

Re: Fuse box queries

Clockwork Orange knows a thing or two about Capri electrics and has produced his own diagrams which are a lot better to read than in the Haynes manual and more accurate too. Start with: http://www.capripower.co.uk/forum/index ... ngs.21510/

Re: Handbrake adjustment

It is very easy to adjust once you've found it. The outside of the cable itself is a coarse thread which the adjuster winds along to take up the slack. Some would say it's always worth checking the adjusters on the brake drums first. To do that you would slacken them off (Haynes manual covers it) th...

Re: Horn Location

put a multimeter on the connections. get someone to operate the horn button.

If its not the horn then check the fuses and then check the switch itself.

Re: Mk3 2.0 laser restoration advice

it might be worth buying pattern part wings and cutting them up for use as repair sections. You'd then have the best of both worlds, solid wings which fit the car still.

Re: Axle location kit help

Ive got one I bought a couple of years ago and have never fitted.

I later read they can cause damage to the leaf springs over time so decided to leave the thing in it's box to gather dust. Not sure why i thought it was a good idea at the time. More clutter to sell on really.

Re: Capri mk3 for sale

You dont get charged for posting here so why not post a bit more about it . :shock:

Generally on here the term 'bubbles' is usually followed by 'needs a bit of work'. It could do with more explanation.

My daughter in law had one for a while and loved it. They go like stink and handle superbly.
Change the oil and spark plugs regularly. Try not to restart when the engine is still warm and you should be fine.

Re: Mk3 2.0 laser restoration advice

As others have said, original cars tend to keep their value better so by definition it would be good to make any modifications reversaable, keep the bits that have been removed. There was a phase of people removing the side trims from Lasers, Ls's, GL's etc and fitting S stripes in their place, ther...

Just sold on Ebay £ 26 plus postage.
Disappointing as these things are £ 120 new. perhaps everyone is sensibly going the CCI dash route now like ive just done.

I suppose in my heart of hearts I believe there is something basically wrong with a world in which if you`re born in one region and happen to have a pretty face you will have unimaginable riches poured upon you for just basically existing. If you`re born on the other side of the world you will be v...

Re: Leather dash full cover

It does just that. Its a full skin rather than a cover, i.e it something that is glued onto the surface of the dash to provide a new outer surface. If you search Ebay for Capri leather dashboard or similar search words you will find them as made by GF Customs and will also see mine on there 2nd hand...

Your request and the title appear to be 2 rather different things. To ensure the right responses it may be best if you clarify Are you looking for the striped cloth for the inserts for a 'half leather interior' i.e from a 2.8 Injection Special (nominally 1984 onwards) or One of the 2 types of cloth ...
