  1. Let me know how you hook it up and where you mount it, I had a look at doing it on mine but without buying more vacuum tube couldn’t find a nice way to do it.
  2. Was this a change on an NA or an S, and which clutch did you go for as a replacement?
  3. I love mine, which are the shorter version of the one above.
  4. Superb, when can I drop mine round for the same? 😁
  5. Is there not a small drain hole in the bottom of the well surrounding the filler cap ?
  6. Well whoever you get to fit it, you'll enjoy the greatly un-dampened supercharger 'wheeeee!' noises that come in from about 2.5k rpm. It's brilliant
  7. Did mine without wheel off or raising the car, but it wasn’t quick! Once you get to this point it’s pretty plain sailing though…
  8. Removing the old airbox is an exercise in contortion, you’ll want to be kneeling in the boot for most of it!
  9. Agreed, it does seem unfortunate, do you know if the garage replaced with the same type (the one with the large D-shaped bulge housing what appears to be an inductor and capacitor as some kind of transient smoothing circuitry) ?
  10. Almost a month, and many damp drives later, it's still fixed and working fine. I presume the fault is simply a buildup of light corrosion on the contacts over time?
  11. Just ran out of washer fluid unexpectedly (the bottle is so huge it's a rare occurrence), topped it up and watched her widdle all over the garage floor... Will have to get her jacked up and take the wheel arch liners off at some point soon, I'm hoping its the filler hose...
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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).
  16. 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.
  17. I fear the same, dont suppose you remember the bolt and nut size do you?
  18. Likewise, I still have a wobbly headlight I need to get better access to !
  19. How much of a job was it out of interest ?
  20. It comes in from behind the fuse box in the pax footwell I believe.
  21. 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
