    Instrument cluster lights

    First try the dimmer button - possible you've pushed and held it in. Next remove the fuse and replace, as this resets it Had this a couple of time on my old 2008 SC - think its no. 9 IIRC ( but check handbook ) After these - its gets more painful I'm afraid.

    Instrument cluster lights

    There is a Button on the Steering column which controls how bright on not the instrument panels is, check your handbook I doubt it's a failure but then you never know 😀

    Instrument cluster lights

    Can't help too much, but I would have strongly thought they would be LED - they have been on most of my previous cars dating back to the early 2000's. Dash brightness is adjustable isn't it too - presume you've tried the dimmer...??

    Lotus in the Peaks - Lost Property

    You need to pop one of the others off, measure it and match it to the 3 listed? They appear to be 3 different sizes ( wheel dependant i expect ) You might be able to just ease one off from the front. If you cannot, drop a wheel off and just push it out from the back HTH
  10. Missing: Front passenger wheel center cap, last seen at Hassop station cafe and probably lost en route to Peak Rail... I noticed yesterday that it was missing after we parked up for lunch....I've had a look online and not quite sure which part number it is (part 17 in the link below is split into 3 numbers): Parts List Has anyone ordered similar and know for certain which is required? The whole center cap is missing so now the center wheel spline thingy underneath is visible. Thanks all

    Great to see you again matey. Its certainly been a while. Concert was one of the best I've been to - started with 'You Give Love a Bad Name' and finished with Livin' on a Prayer. What more can a man wish for? Maybe see you at Baslow in the Summer at one of the Club Lotus meets at Baslow Up the Blades, Andrew

    Sorry wheel and tyres again

    Putting the car on the spare alloys with no tyres will be fine, just put some sheets of wood/MDF under them to prevent damage. As for the SC wheels, I'n not sure if they are any wider, they might be 6". Check the Seloc wheel wiki here for more info. https://wiki.seloc.org/a/S2_Wheel_Options I had the same issue and went with aftermarket wheels in the end (not to everyones choice) but it allowed me to get wider fonts that easily took the 205 tyres.

    Instrument cluster lights

    Hi all after yesterday’s outing I’ve got in the car this morning and the instrument cluster lights are out on an 2010 S2 are they bulbs or led’s also seems a bit strange that I assume there is mor then one and they are all out? Before I strip it down any info please I can’t seem to find much about the Illumination side. Thanks

    Sorry wheel and tyres again

    Sorry but having real problems with wheels and tyres. I have a set of S2 wheels around 2006 they are 5.5J with no rubber on so I was going to get them done black and get some new Yokohama on them but you can only fit up to 195 on that rim width and they don’t make 195 in 175, 185 or 195 in 16”. I am assuming that my standard SC wheels are wider? If they are then I can fit 205 on the front which they do in 16” if that’s the case could I leave the car on the rims on a block of wood while I get the SC wheels done black or will it damage the wheels. Due to the jacking problems is the any where yo can leave the car on stands with out damaging it? Any other ideas? Thanks in advance

    Can't help I'm afraid I assume you've tried Oakmere to see if they can sell/lend you anything? Is some epic bodgery not a possibility? Good Luck!

    Last chance

    I'm currently sitting in the last chance saloon and the fat lady has started singing... Fitted a new throttle cable last week to the elise. Last job before LitP. It was faulty... (Internal fraying of the outer cable) And I'd cut the original perfectly good cable up to save a few mins getting it out. (Aargggh!) Little did I know there is a national shortage of throttle cables for early k series elise S2. (Aargggh!) A company. Called speedy cables made one up for me but an error meant it was too short ( Aargggh! ) They made a new one up today but have then missed todays post so I won't get it until Monday. ( Aargggh! ) I've managed to source 'a' throttle cable and it arrives tomorrow by courier but the sender is not sure if it is for the S1 or the s2. ( Aargggh! ) As my luck is well and truly out at the moment I was wondering if anyone has a spare throttle cable, used or new, for k series s2 which I could a) buy and b) is collectable within a couple hours drive of Manchester should the one arriving tomorrow not fit? Cheers Will Ps. Yes, I know: If it ain't broke...

  23. You looked like you were exiting redgate at nearly 100mph from what i could make out from your speedo! that car has serious grip! nicely driven! been there a few times now and I can vouch for the red flag situation! They seem to be squeezing more cars on track per session and that doesn't help much!

    Cheers Chaps - advice much appreciated. See you Sunday morning - not in the Loti I'm afraid, look out for something loud and purple!

    Anyone live in Coventry?

    There's a building supplies place on Bedlam Lane that offers secure parking when there's events on, not sure how much it costs but I suspect it's cheaper than the Ricoh. It's about 10 minutes walk from there. Or you can park on Bedlam Lane itself (or the other roads around there) for nothing if you don't need it to be secure.

    LITP group leader polos, a plea!

    You beat me to it Dean, I was going to say something similar but.... Kurt - haha absolutely no chance However, I notice you are booked onto Ashbourne Brisk so if you like I could ask the other group leaders if seven of us can gather round you so that you can drool at the lovely collection of LitP shirts on view - would that help at all? Jon - as Dean says, I know for certain that there weren't any shirts available last year, not a single one. I've had 10 shirts done this year (albeit without the embroidery on the arms) but they've all gone immediately to new leaders - apart from just one! I'm not sure yet if the 'spare' will be a medium or a large.

    LITP group leader polos, a plea!

    Sorry guys! Please remember that all the LitP team are volunteers - i can promise you the only reason these things aren't sorted is because of the time it takes. This year Dunc, the lead organiser, has been run off his feet doing all that needs to be done to make sure the event happens. He has however ordered some LitP polos for this year's new group leaders. They are printed and don't have embroidery or the logos on the sleeves but should still be nice. Can i suggest you both ask him on Sunday if there are any spares? Jonathan yours is free if there are . See you later? Dean

    You’ll be lucky, I’ve led a group twice and never received one despite requests.
