    Indicator condensation help please

    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
  2. 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

    Musing on a change to suit my age group..

    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.

    Is it still AD07 and AD08 ?

    Hi all its a simple question. Time for new rubber all round so are we still fitting standard size and Yokohama AD07 on the front and AD08 on the rear? The 175 on the front are a bit hard to get hold of in the correct size for some reason. Is there anything better out there now for the same sort of price, grip and wearability? Thanks
  6. Thanks everything looks dry.The thing is after jacking it up and using a bar everything seems tight and as it should be.

    Starter button fix

    Hi all this may have already be done but if not here we go. I have had a problem with an intermittent starter button so I decided to take things apart and it turned out to be an easy fix. MAKE SURE THE IGNITION IS OFF AND THE KEY IS OUT. Remove the two screw and pull the panel forward and down. When you put it back to gether the screws don't line up very well as the fixings move. The button appears to have a rubber cover over the back then 4 short cables leading to a connector but when you fold back the rubber at the back of the switch back it turns out there is another connector which is held to the switch pins with what can only be described as a bit of Bath silicone? Any way if you push the rubber back up the leads you can just simply unsolder them one at a time and solder them directly to the switch pins, then push the rubber back down for a nice clean dry job. This may not be your problem but you can kind of prove it just by seeing if the white block is a little loose, I did try some tape to start but it was not very successful and at the end of the day one less connection has got to be better. Hope this helps someone. Thanks
  8. Thanks everything looked good but I will check again.

    TRD Airfilter/Induction 2ZRFE

    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.
  10. From where you are Gav at unit4 it's an easy drive and he is a great guy, he services mine every year I drive up from 10 miles south of Birmingham well worth it and he won't rip you off. As for the colour of your car great choice SNAP. (All you need now is all the optional white stone chips round the front.)
  11. Hi all I have a couple of problems my 09 S2 seems to have become a little unstable in a straight line at speed, the slightest ripple in the tarmac seems to unsteady it with a twitch, it feels more like the rear end but it's hard to tell, it feels a bit like when your (if you've ever felt it) really going for it and back off a bit to quick and it all goes a bit light but it's doing it when you still pushing on. It still corners fine. I had it up in the air this morning and everything looks fine, tight and no play apart from the anti rollbar it won't move up or down and the drop links feel tight but what you can do if flex it round in a horizontal circle about 5mm in all directions and as you move it the other attached to the other hub moves the same but with less movement, this is the same for both sides. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to see is this normal? If not is it a bush replacement or the whole thing and what about the drop links? The cars now done 40,000 miles but after nearly 10 years that's a lot of pot holes. I'm going to need a new set of rubber in about 2k but for me that's another 6 months but could they be the problem? I know the fronts are around 4 years old and the rears are 2 years old. My other problem is driving along the other day and for no reason at all the air bag warning came on. First of all is there anything I need to check and how do I reset it? I have an old odb reader that shows no fault (what do I need to buy these days to read and cancel these sort of faults) is it a major problem or can I ignore it? Mind you the it already starting to drive me mad it's like it's staring at me. Thanks in advance.
  12. Champagne and caviar all the way thanks Colin
  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.
