  1. Yes straight in, I removed the door card to make it easier except I lost the little clip that holds the window winder handle on, as you do 😩
  2. Fitted my new reprotec door glass guides. Significantly reduced wind noise. The old ones were very degraded. That’s 34 years for you
  3. Thanks for the replies. Seem worth having then.
  4. Hi. Can anyone please remind what the possible issue is with having this piece missing from the door glass. I discussed it with David from Mantasport but that was months ago and I have forgotten what his words of wisdom were😔. I have seen you can get remade ones from Germany for 30 quid which seems reasonable. Should it be replaced and what do they actually do. Thanks
  5. I emailed Adrian Flux weeks ago as I wanted to make a mid term adjustment to my policy but nobody bothered to contact me
  6. That’s the one Wayne thanks. I have messaged you.
  7. Thanks for posting. I will bear those in mind. Thanks again
  8. Thanks Wayne. Much appreciated Yes I have seen them thanks. They are quite expensive for what they are.
  9. I know Herman they are expensive for what they are that’s why I thought I would try and get a decent second hand one , I could wash it through and use. Thanks
  10. Hi. Has anyone got an injection pre filter they could sell me. It’s the black plastic thing that sits under a coupe just before fuel pump. Thanks
  11. Looks good. Yes they are called p clips. Plenty of them on eBay thanks for the help
  12. Yes I found them also. Almost £50 posted from Germany and £67 for alloy ones over here . I read on here recently you can wash them out as it’s a coarse mesh filter inside to stop larger chunks of debris getting inside the fuel pump. I will give the parts microfiche CD a go. Got plenty of time on my hands unless someone comes along and points me in the right direction. Cheers
  13. Hi All, hope you are all well. Does anyone know where you can get the brackets/clamps for the pre fuel filter/pump/main fuel filter under a GTE coupe. I have discovered the small section of pipe between the pre filter and pump is leaking and I would like to take the opportunity to remove the pre filter and give it a good clean out while I am at it. They are expensive little buggers to buy new I have found but I reckon the brackets holding them on could probably do with replacement while I am under there. Thanks
  14. Genuine Bosch pumps come in a blue box with the print a matt texture. Fakes have a gloss texture to the packaging. Fakes come with a small bag of fittings, genuine ones have no fittings, fakes have no quality control indentations on the pump body, genuine ones have QC holes drilled at the top and centre of the body. Genuine ones have a slightly oily smell when taken out of the plastic wrapping, this is the machine oil used in production whereas fakes don’t have this. Lastly the letters stamped on the pump body are clear and concise whereas the fakes are an obvious poorer quality i would avoid ebay as there are too many fakes and go to a Bosch authorised dealer
  15. Great thank you Thanks
  16. Hi. Could someone please post a close up picture of the throttle body paying particular attention to the throttle stop screw. Mine has disappeared somewhere and I am getting hold of a new one this week. There’s a picture in the Haynes manual but it’s not that close up and it’s a black and white image. Thank you

  18. There is one on eBay. It’s a Philips 751 which is a slightly lesser spec than the 752 which had auto reverse. Cassette is not working though
  19. Hi. Has anyone got a half decent card radiator tray. It's the bit that sits between rad and front panel. Needs to have intact fixing holes as that's where mine has gone. Can collect and pay at VBOA this weekend. Ta.
  20. Try pushing up onto headlining from inside the car . You may well feel/hear a crumbling which will indicate that the tray is starting to go. Has the roof started to show corrosion on the top side? i did exactly the same with mine, no corrosion on the outer roof skin but feeling the headlining inside all was not well. I took the required steps to rectify, you might want to do the same before spending your hard earned on a paint job. good luck.
  21. Rothmans is spelt wrong. Can't advertise fags anymore. Off to buy a lottery ticket or two
