  1. Its recently happened to me too, just had a poke at the brake sensor to see what might be going on... Two (the coppery pair) of the four plug blade terminals are shorted when the plunger is up, with the silvery two open. This reverses when the plunger is depressed and those two small silver button shaped contacts are separated. That red component is a mystery as I didn't want to try and wangle it out to examine it. I applied a bit of contact cleaner, some contact grease and some silicone lube to the plunger slides and it's gone back into the car, I'll see a little later if that has fixed anything, otherwise I'll be in the queue for Deroure to source the SAAB part from the factory. NB: I fully pressed in and then pulled the plunger out by seven clicks, but when back in the car as soon as the brake pedal was relaxed onto the plunger I heard it click in one notch further.
  2. Out of the glovebox and I squeeze it in between the console and seat as I’m only short so the seat is a few clicks forwards.
  3. I have the Alpine ILX-702D, it wasn't very cheap, and I miss having a rotary volume dial, but otherwise it works very well (wired connection) to my iPhone.
  4. 0.006 is 6mA. 0.06 is 60mA. 0.6 is 600mA. 6 is,.... 6A. 60mA does seem a lot, I'll go and see what the Evora is pulling now... I measured 25mA on average (it actually seems to oscillate between 20mA and 28mA) and the alarm was armed as it went off as soon as I flipped the boot catch back open (having closed it manually to turn off the boot lights whilst measuring).
  5. What about some contact cleaner spray over the MAF sensor attached to the top of the airbox ? Maybe some contact switch grease on the MAF sensor plug connector terminals too.
  6. I fear the same, dont suppose you remember the bolt and nut size do you?
  7. Likewise, I still have a wobbly headlight I need to get better access to !
  8. How much of a job was it out of interest ?
  9. It comes in from behind the fuse box in the pax footwell I believe.
  10. This is the BOE undertray. I forgot about customs charges sadly, so it came to the ripe old sum of about £570 after currency exchange, hence the cost saving exercise of DIY fitting
  11. Well as there wasn't a discount forthcoming, I decided to bite the bullet anyway. Let me say I've never felt so old, achey and unfit as I do right now after fitting this....
  12. I can't help but notice he doesn't actually show them opening and closing 🤣
  13. You may have missed the much more recent updated …
