  1. Hi Richard Some photos as promised of the filter housing with the part numbers you require hope this helps
  2. Hi Richard Yes no problem, I will take a photo over the weekend and let you know the part number for the air filter too, I replaced the filter not long after I had the car.
  3. Hi, Yes the pads and discs have been replaced, I am going to try and find some time this week to bleed the brakes again. May be back on here if no success.
  4. Thanks for the advice guys. I will have a go at rebleeding them. Fingers crossed that’s all it is.
  5. Hi Barry I've had new pipes fitted from the master cylinder to both front callipers, they were refurbished at REDS in Worcester. I was thinking of swapping the pipes over to see if it pulls to the left. It would rule out a sticky callipers I guess
  6. Looking for some advise. I’ve completed a complete overhaul of the braking system over the winter and noticed that the car pulls quite severely to the right under braking. Having had all the callipers refurbished and some new brake lines I’m pretty sure that it’s the master cylinder. I took it to a friend of mine who has a garage and put the car on the brake testing system. It would appear that the back brakes operate as they should, however the front left has a delayed reaction to the brake pedal (something between 0.5 and 1 second) it does eventually catch up and stop the other wheel, ideally I would like to keep the car as original as possible as I know there are alternative options available. Has anyone experienced this before and is it the master cylinder as suspected, can they be repaired or refurbished. thanks Rick
  7. Hi Richard I have attached a picture of the rear of the car as promised The interior carpet is black with cream edging Took the photo today just before I took it for a spin
  8. Prices have been on the rise over the past couple of years. Not sure of valve of mine with 75k miles and only seen the SE models for sale at between 15k to 25k depending on condition
  9. Hi Richard Most of my photos are on my laptop at work, the back lights are the standard rectangular versions but I will send you some additional photos when I’m back in the office on Friday some attached from my phone
  10. Hi Richard I have the same vehicle and same year, been working on it for the last couple of years, rebuilt the rear suspension then last year the front suspension and brakes all around, still work in progress as I'm doing bits at a time, live near Worcester I will try and help if I can, don't have any spare parts, not that are any good anyway. Regards Rick
  11. Red Lotus Elise 05 plate stuck under what looked like a Ford Galaxy yesterday at Holt Heath near Worcester at 11.30am. The cabin looked intact and my son thought you were sat on the side of the road. We were in the red Esprit and waved past by the police. Hope you're ok
