  1. Thanks I see you know about the Smart ECU then. I’ve had loads of cars all rag tops and no mater what they are they all leak including the 911 turbo and even the SLK AMG which was a folding hard top you would think by now someone would get it sorted. I don’t really mind the wet it’s just not being able to see out of the windows mind you I kind of have a cure for that I use the Karcher window vac👍
  2. Hi all my two front foot wells are very wet😩 I know both the lower window corner triangles leak but their not that bad, is there anywhere around the top under the dash that leaks? I once had a Smart roadster barabus and that used to pour through the wiper motor tray unless you removed it and re sealed it. Coming back to the corners where the windows slide up the gap in the rubber is very wide and the rain seeps round and in can they be fixed or is it replace only as the appear to be glued in? My aircon has failed which makes it even harder to clear the condensation off the windows the blue light comes on but no cold air. I’ve noticed there is no increase in revs so the pump is not running. I know where the filler is but is there an inspection window for the gas, what are the common faults with this system and what are the repairs. Does anyone close to south Birmingham have a vacuum tester for the aircon should I need one. Thanks
  3. Thanks all sorted it😁 Took the dash apart and it turned out the plug had come loose in the back of the clocks. Pulled it out a spray of cleaner put it back in and bingo. Thanks again.
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. The problem they is they don’t do AD08 in the correct size for the front? Any other recommendations? Thanks
  7. Hi all my old York’s AD07 front and AD08 rear died a few months ago and I’ve been running a set of Toyo R888R which are very good tyres. I have had my other alloys refurbished and now want to get some new rubber for them but this is proving quit difficult, I can’t find any online supplier that does both the 07 and the 08 in fact they are getting hard to find in the correct sizes full stop. Am I looking at the wrong tyres these days? Thanks in advance
  8. I know this is no real help but mine like many others snapped by the swivel clip at the end, I have found a local company who can reclamp it as there is plenty of spare in the adjuster. The only problem is I need to drill the old cable out of the end swivel which is proving very hard as it just wont drill, I may have to take it to an engineering company after all it will still end up costing far less then a new one.
  9. I have already fixed the tab. I tried the hole just to see it it helps I can easily seal it again. I think I will try putting it in water over the next few days and look for air bubbles and try and seal it around the lens that made a lot of sense as being the only way water could get in. Thanks
  10. Hi all my right indicator just keeps filling with condensation about once a month, its not something that's new it done it for years but not this bad. I've even drilled a couple of 3mm holes in it to let the air flow through. The problem is the contacts on the bulb keep failing. As we all know what a pain it is to get the indicator out I really need to get this sorted. I think I may solder the wires direct to the bulb at least that will stop that problem but what is causing so much water in the lens? There must be lots of us with this problem? Thanks in advance
  11. I know this post has been around for a bit but I just thought I wold drop in my thoughts. I've done both of them and many others like 911 Turbo but nothing is as much fun as my little SC but if you so go for one it has to be the Aston the reason for this is simple if you buy a Porsche Boxted it's a poor man's 911 well when you drive R8 it always feels like a poor man's Lambo but the R8 is a good car.
  12. Bit of a late reply. I've had one for years with no problems and as for your new 2bular wait till you've a few thousand miles on it it just gets better and better.
  13. Hi all well I went to see Gav at unit 4 for a service and as so many have said great service and a really nice guy thumbs up.
