    Electric mirror adjust not working

    Sorry but I think the method I described is a tad faster.

    Electric mirror adjust not working

    If you take off the mirror casing ,it only clips on, you will be met with a lump of white corrosion. Tie a towel or something on to the mirror to protect your paintwork then liberally spray Plus gas , leave to soak ,when eventually the mirror starts to move freely , apply chain grease. Both of mine are due this treatment again ,lasted two years before getting sticky. Mike

    Choice of Tyres?

    For what its worth ,in my experience over the last few years everything is asymmetric.

    more warning light probs.

    Thanks both, Although I have not used a pressure washer in this case,I do have the habit of rinsing the wheels with a bucket of water , cleaning the abs sensors will have to be the next job I think ,then give all the wires a smear of WD 40 grease (Liberated from Concorde ) In truth I have been looking for excuses NOT to take the wheels off,but needs must. I used to enjoy whipping the wheels off and on but no more I am afraid. Mike
  6. Could anyone tell me if there is anyway that moisture could trip the abs and associate services warning lights. Since fitting a new battery everything has been fine,then I washed the car ,since then the warning lights have come on randomly, the battery shows 12.6 volts. This morning all was well on start up,drove about three miles and as I stopped the lights came on, drove off and the lights went out after a few yards ,reversed unto a drive and lights back on. Battery reset and all out except EML . Mike

    Thanks for the comments , the last screen I had replaced was when a trolley jack rolled of a shelf and almost went right through . Mike

    Heated windscreen

    Mine is as if there is a light mist, or a coating of !Removed! residue , in sunshine every wire is visible. I will have a look for markings tomorrow . Mike

    Heated windscreen

    I am reaching the point of having the heated front screen removed and replaced with a non heated one, the heating elements are driving me cuckoo , I dont like the constant greying of the screen or looking through the elements when the sun shines. I wonder if my screen is a cheap replacement or is every one the same. Mike

    Headlight bulbs.

    I dont think I do enough after dark driving to warrant HId ,so I will give the ring 150s a go ,is it worth doing main beam as well? If only LED was up to speed and legal,I recently changed my security light to LED ,what a difference..

    Headlight bulbs.

    A couple of years ago I was considering changing my headlight bulbs ,time has gone bye and the car has not been used a lot ,now having reduced the stable down to one The S type is being used daily ,to-night I had to go out and realised how poor the headlight are ,so what has everyone else gone for? I presume technology has moved forward over the last few years. Has it or we still stuck with candle power in single figures?
