How on earth/why on earth do you fit a roll cage to an Esprit?
While you're there Phil, give the inside of the recess and all the pod a good polish
Also, take the plastic covers off from the front of the light surround and check the metal fitting plates found behind are in good condition and not rusting or this problem will re-occur. They are cheap to replace and easy to fit
Call me simple but could the drain hole in the bottom of the pod recess be blocked and you're accumulating water which is splashing out at times? There's nothing else in there afaik that could result in water in the pod?
I had this problem, and as it's pretty well enclosed, water from a wash can sit in there for weeks even when it's hot, only to leave when I'm driving along.
If it's this, I'd recommend undoing the 10mm bolt on the arm from the motor to the pod, at the motor end and lifting the pod up and having a good clean. A bit of rust floating down there can block the small hole and then your lights are sitting in a puddle which isn't good.
Welcome Alan, I hope you like it here !!!
Sorry, I'm no v8 cooling guru, in fact I know nothing about it apart from that I guess it has a cooling system. What it is tho', is what do you mean by ejecting water?
Does it do it when stationary? Only at speed? Is it splashes or a concentrated squirt?

Looks like a lovely S4, congratulations, it's an Esprit
Lancashire eh, Lotus hotspot innit
Have you put the car on LEW?
Also, I understand as a subscriber and photo contributor to the Pink Pages, as you are, you get discount on ads in there, perhaps another idea?

has a website...
Very interesting read, nice car
Whereabouts are you based Phil, I guess South Wales unless you were out visiting!?
There are a few Esprit's in that neck of the woods, Rob C with the Sport 250, Mike B with the golden V8-GT...
Here's my pics
The BEE ENN Fleet shined and ready to go...
Early morning, Esprit spotted hiding in foliage
MDMKenna with some, err, pace
GT3 at speed

Car park, <>< looking for planes, or aliens I think
The homobile, now rebadged
Grand prix line up on the way to the pub for dinner
After the pub
Great day, great company, great driving
Also, a word of thanks to tinywillyuk for the freescan, advice and climb in the boot to check the knock sensor, and offer of his spare. Above and beyond, thanks again.
Welcome to LEF Phil, hope you like it here

Or I could do it

No idea folks, it's the weekend and I'm not one for early morning's at the best of time.
Even the official website gives nothing away
Rubbish, but perhaps you can call the phone number on there?
Hello Richard and welcome to LEF. Hope you find the site useful and easy to get the hang of
I've got some spares
Check out my drive this morning

Steve has the Unity forum running for over a year, during which time I've been an active member of it however due to various reasons wasn't willing to make it public. I run another big forum and thought it prudent to set up a replacement for Yahoo if Steve wasn't confident in his software/hardware being up to the job, hence this site, LEF.
I was willing to make it public, being confident in my solution and I still am. Too many people procrastinate over non-decisions in my opinion, the options were stagnating hence this site being made public and 'lets see what happens!'
At the end of the day, Yahoo is not a good place to use, Steve wasn't happy with his to release his, and I was so I did. It's only a forum, it's not a revolution in the world, it's just better. Let's move with the times and make things better for everyone. There are no disadvantages, it's all good.

Hope you have a good day Rich, enjoy the weather and get a nice hoon in too
Many happy returns.
Very cool, easy to park too
With Kato's blessing this site is keyed to become integrated into LEW main site and a 'possible' (read probable) replacement to Yahoo. Use this one.
Steve hasn't been able to put his forum on general release for various reasons and Yahoo is rubbish. This forum is available, reliable, functional, infinately large (no posts will ever expire, they will be here forever) and easily searchable. You can subscribe to topics by email, get daily and weekly digests of all new posts, put your car in the gallery with dynamic modifications and comments etc.
It's better than Piston Heads with topics and forums, as opposed to PH's long list which can, like Yahoo, fragment making it hard to read.
I set this forum up as a solution to the problems faced, and I think I've solved them all. If there's anything you want added, or change, or anything, let me know and the chances are I can do it
