Re: Strange engine noise

Possible, I guess.

Google something like 'mechanics stethoscope', or try the old trick using a large screwdriver to listen to it.

Obvious, but just put the sharp end on the alternator and press your lug to the top of the handle. :wink:

Re: Strange engine noise

That's odd. :?

Does the noise increase with engine or road speed, or just constant?

Re: Free full size spare

That would be great, thanks Richard. I'll ask Gordon (who lives near me) and/or Jilly (who we see quite often) if they will be kind enough to collect both. This has the great benefit I can get a matching pair of tyres. 8) Thanks guys. Edit: We're in Builth 2 weeks before the Bash so don't know if it...

Re: Is it wet

Looking at pics of Bewdley, about 3 miles up, I'd guess you don't want to pitch up at Stourport just now. :(

Really feel for everyone caught up in the nightmare, wherever they are in the country.

Mine's diesel, but from being here a while that sounds about right to me. 8)

Re: Rear diff issues... convert to 2wd?

Welcome aboard, have to agree with Geoff.

I've heard of people removing the drive to the front wheels without causing problems but I can't see how you could practicaly do it the other way.

I don't think fitting just the diff is that bad, likely a lot less work than replacing the whole axle assembly.

Re: Manually getting AFT down

If you didn't need to press the button to lower it then likely the roof was never going fully up and locked.

When you raise it the beeping should stop once it locks up, although as they age it isn't unusual to need a little push to lift the last inch or so.

Really glad you're back in business. 8)

Re: Manually getting AFT down

Ah yes, the first question, have you pressed the button up inside the roof, by the interior light?

Found this old thread which may help, too:

Some links in there to follow as well.

Re: Manually getting AFT down

Oh dear. :( Do you get the beep when you press the button to lower it? When you say the door wouldn't open do you mean the central locking wouldn't work, or was the door jamed shut? How, why, which wires did you cut to get it open, and how did you access them? When you replaced the switch did you cl...

Re: Your Ideal toolkit

Certainly worth a call to Bongo Spares.

I guess they don't list every part, particularly bits that don't sell often. :)

Re: Your Ideal toolkit

Hopefully someone (Geoff, please) will help with the Lush Projects diagram, but there's normaly a tray right under the engine.

I believe it's to assist air flow and keep road muck off the business part, but others with more techie knowledge will likely know more.
