You can get a kit (made by Summit?) which consists of adhesive tube & a small piece of gauze material which is sandwiched between mirror bracket & glass. I used it a while back & had not problems since. Make sure both surfaces are thoughly cleaned (I think it may come with a spirit wipe for this). T...

It looks like there is a pump which does the power steering & I beleive the same unit feeds the brake servo. Hopefully, I ...
