Re: Air leak from pillar behind drivers head

Rather than mess about with the interior have you thought about removing the rear heater fuse? It is marked in the fuse box under the bonnet. It might work and twenty seconds effort in that regard could save a lot of time and frustration - just a thought!

Lifting roof electrics

Cos of the fire I need to put direct power to the roof motors. Does anyone know the route of the wires to the motors so I can lift the roof. The colours of the wires would help. I think a battery connected directly will move things so I can get at the stuff in the roof
