Re: Replacing rear tailgate bulbs. New shape 2003.

iirc are the bulbs 501 type and are accesible from inside, if you remove the tailgate inner panel. they're tuck away right in the corners in push n twist fittings and are a pain to get in and out

Re: Cruise Control Fitting

speedo pick up is middle clock plug, blue with white trace. As simon said, depending on where you pick up from (if you have a chip), if not then cut the loop, but if you do and your picking up after the chip, (mph signal) then leave the loop intact. Personally i always pick up an original kmh signal...

Re: Belt Tensioner Bolt

its an odd bolt to shear as its not exactly a load bearing bolt, it locks the tensioner into its pre-set tensioned position

A flat 75AH lb, draws a big spike on initial contact closure, (abt 75%) for a few seconds, so a chaep vsr rated at 30A, gets overloaded, everyone has seen fuses that have melted instead of blown, this is why, in sensitive electronics you ...

Re: Cold start

Northern model CANNOT be rebuilt and YES they can be replaced with the other model, there isnt really a way to predict how long it has left? pick up a recon unit and throw it in there,last thing u wanna do is wait til it packs up and ur stuck in the middle of nowhere!!

Re: Quick towbar question

there are few types of towbar and some are stronger than others. 1 type just bolts through the bumper mount, which on the nearside is exactly where the rear crossmember rots! so make sure your crossmember is in good health before you attach anything to it

There are 2 types of knock from a bongo, a metal knock is the drop links, a thud is the anti roll bar bushes, swap the lot out and be done with it and...
