  1. Hi I am in need of two of, part number: A076W6160F They are the nylon Bush on the headlight actuating arm. They are used on the S2.2 Elite and the Excel. I am hoping someone may have a couple lying around. Cheers David
  2. Hi everyone Does anyone have a parts list and more importantly a picture breakdown of the headlight pod actuator rod and associated washer set up. For an Elite S2.2 Cheers David
  3. Hi everyone I am looking for a pair of sun visors for my 1982 S2 Elite. Preferably black or grey but colour not that essential as can get them recovered, hopefully. Cheers David
  4. Hi everyone I have a 1982 Elite S2.2 and I get a lot of condensation in the boot area. I have taken all the carpets out and checked for water ingress, but non apparent. Has anyone else experienced this and if so what did you do to solve the issue. Also is the boot seal supposed to be in one piece and go all the way round? Mine is in two pieces with small gaps either side by the lock assembly. Cheers David
  5. Hi i had a similar problem some years ago. Carefully check the plastic end clips where the metal rod links into position, under the dash. Mine had gone brittle and had broken off. Cheers
  6. Hi Dan Thanks for the picture and information. Steve has just done a lot of work on my car for me and i have dealt with him for many years, he looks after my esprit turbo as well. Always found him to be very good and Ross (and the rest of the team) always very helpful.. Steve did fit my car with the new trunking but i am not happy with the induction roar it gives. I managed to get an original one from Lotusbits today for £10 including the end piece. The original has some foam lining to reduce the induction noise. See attached picture. Happy bunny, so i am going to fit it tomorrow. Cheers
  7. Hi Tim I am planning on going over to Lotusbits this week, just trying to cover all avenues and put some money into an owners pocket. Cheers
  8. Hi everyone I have a 1982 Elite S2.2 . I am in need of the original air box trunking, In reasonable condition and willing to travel to collect if necessary. I understand that it is tapered and has some sort of lining inside of it. Cheers David
  9. Hi I have a 1989 turbo and my pump ran continuously, draining the battery. It was the purge motor faulty causing the relay to lock itself in th eon position. My relay was located in the boot Cheers DC Ignore that. I have just reread your post saying it is a vacuum pump problem.
  10. Hi Roland and Dan Thanks for the invaluable information and the pictures Dan i have no idea on price, can you send me your email and i will gladly make an offer, where are located ? if not too far from Solihull i could come over and collect it. My email is: [email protected] Cheers
  11. Hi Richard Thanks for the information, i suspected that there should be an end for the trunking, did not think that the trunking would be lined as well. Looks like a trip to Lotusbits and see if they are stripping one apart, I could do with some better leather seats as well . Cheers David
  12. Hi all I have a 1982 S2.2 Elite. Has anyone got any pictures of how there air intake hose is terminated. Mine is placed in the holder in front of the engine but it does create a lot of induction noise on acceleration. I would like to make it quieter if possible. I had a problem with selecting second gear and it was recommended to use the Redline MTL. I can say that selecting the gears is now fine. Thank you for the information. Cheers
  13. Hi Dan Thanks for the update. i think i shall try the ATF and see how the gearbox is with it. if still no good might just need to bite the bullet and get it repaired. Cheers David
  14. Hi Dan and Duncan Thanks for the info. I have checked what is in the box at the moment and it is Mobil 10 / 60. I will have a look at the ones mentioned. Cheers gents
