  2. Garage to Service 111R

    Hi All Got the Service and MOT done at PJS yesterday. Excelent service, Only real extra was a change of the Brake and cluch fluid which was off the scale above 4%. I am going to need some new front tyres soon as the old ones are cracked although it passed the MOT, Any recommendations of where and what tyres to fit on the front at the moment it has the origanal Yokohama AD07 LTS tyres fitted, I am only using it on the road, good performance in damp and cold would be good.

  4. damned MOT

    I fixed my fog Lights and made a post here if the light doesn't come on when you press the button its probabally the switch pack relay. The module is over £100 but if your handy with a soldering iron the relay was less tha £5... Richard

  11. Fixed My Fog Lights

    Hi My Elise 111R rear Fog lights wouldn't turn on, all the other lights were working ok. After testing the LED fitting and all the fuses and the button, Cables and researching online I dismanteled the the Gauge cluster and removed the switch pack modulem. A quick test of the relays with my multimeter showed the coil for one of the relays had blown. I donloaded the data sheet for the relay and after some reseach online I found a TYCO equivelent to the installed relay and also some one who had used the same relay on a VX220 for the centeral locking. I used a solder sucker to unsolder the relay from the switch module and replaced the faulty relay and then re assembled the switchpack and plugged it in. Tested all the lights and they all now work including the rear fog lights. The relay I used for the repair is available from ebay and amazon and is sold as a Fiat Power Stearing relay, but it is an exact match for the old ones. Part No V23072-C1061-A308. I then reassembled the dash and hope that I will be ok. There are 5 of the same relay on the board and I did consider changing them all but it was quite hard to remove the faulty one so I have at the moment ony done the faulty one. Here are some pictures for anyone else who has this issue. Richard
