Re: Capri driving lights

Just a thought, but during my searches I came across a New old stock company that had the Ford labels that went in the center of the lamp for about £6 I think Can’t remember the name of the company but There’s not that many companies that do this sort of thing so wouldn’t be hard to find? Hi, found...

Re: Colour code??

I think it's the 2nd box it's hard to make out there but it's definately a 3 to the eye! I've tried ford and they gave every detail except the colour on their record. The diamond white I ordered is much more grey and notociably different lol For me it looks that you are right with Diamond white. Ma...

...the only thing i can make out in the color box is 3.
Hi,
"3" is on first or second position? There should be two digits or letters.

Could you post here photo of "color box" from VIN plate?

Re: intermittent wipers

+1 for that, I've had that issue on a car, when that posotion hasn't been used much, it needed a real go at it to move it, then it was ok from then on. Maybe investigate if it's clogged up and/or lubricate as suggested. Yes, probably same reason on mine: lack of use. My car is from Spain, so there ...

Re: intermittent wipers

Hi, it's a long shot, but have you tried it with more force? On my Capri it goes to intermittent position with much more higher force. Even few days after I bought it, I didn't know about this down position, until I saw pictogram on the switch. :-) On my other cars all position is in the same way an...

Re: Capri driving lights

Are you thinking of getting ford lamps? I found a third lamp and brought that as well Just in case a stone breaks one. Lamps found in cypress and brackets in wales Probably no, it would be too much expensive for me, I think. I'm curious, because some time ago I tried to find correct dimensions of o...

Try to make it smaller. How much MBytes is one picture?

I made few attempts to attached photo and it should be smaller than 2MB.
