Wheely good builder!

Wheely good builder! (4/6)



  1. My hazards are fine which makes me think the switch is fine or am i missing your point? Thanks
  2. Hi, As per the title really, i have fully working hazards but no left or right indicator, my first check was the stalk, pulled the plug and completed the switch on each side with a link, indicators come on but stay solid so thats thrown me off a bit. Is the relay for the indicators the same as the hazards? Thanks in advance
  3. Soon to be scheduling in an MOT for my Zetec S7 prior to sale, anyone know of a kit friendly station near to Somerton? I'm not local to the area, its dry stored in my mum's garage. Also, the car is on a Q plate so is it just a visual smoke check for emissions? Thanks in advance as always.
  4. Hi, Made a few posts lately detailing how i'm preparing my car for sale, Im keen to sell the car in the best condition as i can etc. The last MOT had an advisory for worn Prop Shaft universal joint. Please can anybody advise me on the exact part I need? Thanks in advance.
  5. Currently preparing my car for sale so going through all the invoices etc etc, i knew it had a Quaife box but id never taken the time to look into the detail. Have a got a bit of a pricey gem on the car? The invoice is blank at the cost part. Thanks in advance.
  6. Thanks, the cars located in Somerset, I’m in Sussex so it’s a pain not being able to check the relatively simple things.
  7. HI, I'm planning to sell my S7 soon so spent the weekend checking it over to prepare it for sale. The chrome has fully gone on the headlamps. I had a quick look at how they are fitted, popped out the glass and cant see how i would unbolt the whole unit, they are fitted to a fully boxed in section, then on the way home i thought do you access the bolt through the indicator hole just under? Any advice welcome, thanks in advance.
  8. Thanks, I will get the car home and work through this. I guess the brakes have just been the biggest factor in me putting her away in the garage and half forgetting about it.
  9. Bloody hell, Hi! They have no feel and no bite and don’t fill me with any confidence. The BMW is no more, onto an S5 and a classic mini that I don’t think I had when we worked on the kit.
  10. Hi, I don’t recall what pedal box it is, just a single master cylinder if I recall.
  11. Hi, very long-standing member here but I’ve not posted in years. I have a Cortina based S7 with a 2l blacktop conversion. Long story it’s sat unused in my garage for around 4 years now. hopefully the time is here for me to get it back out on the road. When I did the conversion I fitted a pedal box. The braking is awful and I’m wondering if there is a suitable servo that anyone has squeezed into the engine bay with success? I’m not sure/don’t recall what it had fitted before but I needed to remove it to fit the zetec obviously. Also while I’m here, anyone local to Horsham? thanks in advance.
