  1. Exige Mk2 Dash removal help?

    Hi all Have replaced the CDL unit earlier today. Take out the two screws in the 'coin cubby' below the starter button/light switches. Then pull out the panel holding starter button and light switches. There is plenty of cable length to then get this panel well out of the way. The CDL unit is roughly in line with the top of the panel just removed straight in front of you 6 inches or so in from the front of the dash. It's held by two screws which you need a very short stubby screwdriver to loosen. Did the whole job in around 45 minutes. Was quoted £270 + the part by Lotus. Got my CDL unit from Paul Matty and Silverstone Lotus also have at least one in stock
  2. Exige Mk2 Dash removal help?

    Hi All I have spoken to two Lotus garages and they both have the Central Door Locking modules in stock and they are only £30 odd inc VAT. However, fitting is £270! Someone on one of the other forums suggests you don't need to remove the dash to access and change the unit. Be good to get a steer on exactly where this unit is located. Does anyone know, or have a manual which gives some idea. Interestingly Simon says he uses his key... Mine only disables the button. I can't get into my Exige with the key, only the Central Locking - which is a bit of a worry if you lose power! Andy
  3. Exige Mk2 Dash removal help?

    Hi All I've got a 2010 Exige and the both doors will lock with the key fob, however when you push to open on the key fob the passenger door unlocks but the drivers side doesn't…. I have had the drivers door actuator out and 12 volts across it and it opens and closes the actuator ok depending on the polarity. Have put a meter across the supply to the drivers door actuator and when closing the reading is around 12 volts, however when opening it's in the 1 to 3 volt range or less! Lotus Cars have suggested it is probably a faulty Central Door Locking Module but this requires removal of the dash to access... Any other ideas and anyone got a manual including how to remove the dash or diagram I can get? Thanks in advance
  4. Garage Servicing Recommendations

    Thanks for the reply. I'm leaning towards HPE....
  5. Hi All My 2010 S2 Exige is coming up for a service (I've only had her since last February). I'm after some garage recommendations in the South Birmingham, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Northamptonshire area - I don't mind travelling. My general experience is that good independents are often more thorough and cheaper than Franchise garages, however I'm happy to consider a Franchise. Look forward to hearing some recommendations
