    I take it that's a no you don't want to try my wheels then Alex?

    I've checked this already Phil. However will go back through it. I've had my wheels balanced at various places in the last 12months.

    Nice video Ray, gives a good feel for the event, thanks to you and Derby Movie Makers for putting it together

    Is whoever is balancing them applying weights on both the inner and outer edges Alex? I had an issue recently where a tyre fitter 'balanced' my wheels with just weights on the inner edge. I had a wobble so took them back and watched them balance them again, still with weights just on the inner edge and still the wobble was there even though their machine was saying they were balanced. I went somewhere else (ETS on Alfreton Road) and they balanced them properly with weights on the inner and outer edges and hey presto - No wobble!

    My wobble has be present with two different sets of tyres now, so not sure tyres are the way to go. I'm thinking the issue may be with a wheel.

    AD07 or AD07LTS2?

    Hasn't everyone been running AD08 for years now since it replaced the 07?

    AD07 or AD07LTS2?

    I am due to change all tyres shortly and I have come across ADVAN AD07 cheaper than AD07 LTS2. Has anyone run AD07 instead of AD07LTS? There is conflicting info out there. HELP!!

    Alex I don't have spare wheels, but I had front wheel wobble problems last year. Lots of trips to my local tyre guys, who kept insisting the tyres were 'distorted' and the only cure was new tyres. They showed me the wheels spinning on the balancing machine. Still had 3 or 4mm left, but bit the bullet and put new fronts on and while not 100%, it was a massive improvement. 2007 111r with AD07's at the front. Just food for thought.....

    More than welcome to pop down and borrow mine Alex, only thing is, it is a bit of a trek for you. I'm literally just (less than 1/4 mile) off the A14 about 15 miles from the M1 junction. Handy for a quick spin to check them though. Just put brand new R888R on them too

    A small favour...

    I appear to have a wheel wobble and I'm trying to rule out wheels. So does anyone have a spare set of alloys with tyres/just a set of fronts with tyres I could borrow to see if the steering still vibrates? Thanks Alex

    Evora tpms replacement

    Another source is from the following, but I think this could be a couple of years old and I haven't needed to use then as my sensors are still ok on my 2010 Evora : TYR- S002-T-Pro Clamp – In Sensor Part No: HTS-A122B, 72-20-364 Tel: 0116 2001020 Unit C Whiteacres, Cambridge Rd, Whetstone, Leicester, LE8 6ZG £36 approx I think the actual make is: Schrader TPMS Part No. 13227143

    Evora tpms replacement

    You can buy individual ones from lotus via Deroure but they are not cheap, or from ebay. There was a recent thread on The Lotus Forum and here is one response: Much cheaper to buy a set of Autel sensors and programmer pad. The Lotus system on the Evora uses 433Mhz and the sensors need to be programmed with an ID number and system will detect the sensors and learn which sensor is where after driving for a few miles. The sensors do need an ID programmed in the first place so you can't use the Autel sensors straight of the shelf. The Autel programmer should be able to clone your existing sensors if you want to keep the ID the same but as long as the sensor is programmed with an ID the system will self learn. Set of 4 sensors are available for around £80-90 and the USB programming pad is available for around £40-60. Here are just one link out of many from Ebay also many sellers on Amazon selling both Autel sensors and programmers. Autel MX sensor 433Mhx £80 for 4: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/X4-Original-Autel-MX-Sensor-433MHz-Programmable-Universal-TPMS-Sensor-Most-Cars/183264912039?epid=1342402954&hash=item2aab70a2a7:g:d38AAOSwi3tbIjHt Autel programming pad £40: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Autel-MaxiTPMS-PAD-TPMS-Sensor-Programming-Programmer-Accessory-Device/233134236958?hash=item3647e2251e:g:a3AAAOSw1vxcZo7N

    Evora tpms replacement

    All In-tyre TPMS sensors, with an integral battery, have a finite service life - and should be periodically changed as a complete assembly. Outside of changing a single sensor due to unexpected failure, it follows that they would be routinely changed, as a set, when changing worn tyres. Doesn’t your owners handbook offer any guidance as to the anticipated service life prior to expected replacement? If your sensors are the original fit, they’ll now be over ten years old - and likely well past their expected lifespan. As for sourcing a non-Lotus component, you may need to consider that the sensor/transmitter is paired with the corresponding in-car receiver module. You might expect to find the OEM Manufacturer part number marked on the sensor - if so, armed with this information, you might be able to source via an alternative supplier or motor factor.

    New Member, coolant loss

    Welcome to MLOC. Easy way to check for a blow across the fire ring on a K series. Take it out for a spirited drive lol. Leave it to cool for a couple of hours or so. Slowly remove the coolant cap. If you have pressure still in the system, it will either hiss loudly and or water will rush back into the coolant bottle. If you only get a small hiss breath a sigh of relief. Another symptom when it gets worse is the temp will dodge about as the coolant cap releases the pressure in the system and reseals when its gone. Dont panic as i drove home from Le Mans once slowly when i had this. Changing a head gasket is far easier than an engine swop. Pop the rear boot lid off and crack on if needed Best to phone Gav if you need him. Have fun.

    Hi Paul, I'm based at Kingstone near Uttoxeter, I have pressure test equipment, if you want to call round one day I'll happily check it for you Graham

    Evora tpms replacement

    Hi, I need to replace one of the TPMS sensors on one of my 2009 evora wheels after a major corrosion issue meant it fell apart during a routine tyre change. In fact I’m wondering if it might be time to replace all of them. Has anyone found a realistic alternative to the standard Lotus items or a cheaper place to source them? thanks, Max

    New Member, coolant loss

    Yup, hope so. Taken her out for a half hour spirited run, no coolant loss and still nice and pink. Just have to keep an eye on it for next week or so.

    New Member, coolant loss

    Fingers crossed it was a combination of the cap and air in the system 🤞
