  1. The usual workshop disclaimers apply, if you are not sure or don't have the tools don't do the job, this is a vital component on your car. If not done correctly the front wheel could just plain come off. Seems to be a common problem with our cars so I thought I would post this to give a guide. First apply the handbrake, "crack" the wheel nuts on the side you are doing and then jack the car up and support on an axle stand. Use the wheel "chock" (foldable wedge thing from the toolkit) under the opposite rear wheel. Jack up the opposite side front so that the tyre is just clear of the ground (T
  2. Hi All, not been on here for a while. Ex Mrs Mac #2 managed to back into a neighbour,s car and broke the passenger side rear light. It is the original silver type and I konw that lots have changed to the "smoked" ones on here. Anyone got an old one in the back of the garage they want shot of? Ta
  3. Know that this is a old thread but only just read it cos not been on here for a long time! Only taken me 7 years but finally I understand :-)
  4. I would start with cleaning the spark plugs, short run may have "fouled" them. Had the same thing with the Tezza and just replaced all the plugs anyway, still OK so far.
  5. More likely the cambelt is not properly fitted, could be a tooth out making the VTTi adjustment go "out of range".
  6. Hi and welcome to LOC :) Lovely car but really needs a bit of lowering
  7. You need THE DOCTOR if you lower the car the negative camber puts all the load on the insides of the tyres. So if adjustable he will correct the camber as much as possible.
  8. How far did you lower it? Too much negative camber will do the insides of the tyres, forget tracking you need a geo check.
  9. Hi and welcome to LOC :) Can we take it that it was the fronts that you did both times? I would doubt that you bought 2 sets of warped disks. Have you checked that the hubs are clean, the caliper pins are free and that you don't have a "sticky" caliper?
  10. About 6 months between the pics as well? Agree on the wheels though, the rears are different in the pics.
  11. Wait till you try to slam it in 1st and hit reverse instead. Then when you drop the clutch and hit the car behind tell me you don't need it!
  12. That was a great read, wonder that I did not pick up on this thread before. Lovely work and a great looking and sounding car you got there.
  13. Very disappointing for you. I would have been raging mad having travelled all that way. Seems a bit strange that they mapped it without even fixing the ECU in the engine bay. Sounds like the install was not complete and the mapping probably not done. Hope for better news soon :-)
  14. Like Tony said I think the warning is oil pressure. I would assume that the air temperatures and fairly low where you are right now, if so 5W40 should be ok. Top the oil up as I know that when the level is lowish in my car it will light up when braking because the oil is moving around in the sump.
