  1. thats a great diagram Giorgio, ive used it a few times now, so its a big thanks from me
  2. I changed all mine on my 86 s3 using the bushes from SJ as above. It does make a big difference, and mine were no where near as bad as yours Easy Job
  3. Yes it does on mine, ive often thought it looked weird.!
  4. unfortunately the lights failed the mot for being too high prior to me doing the conversion so i had nothing to measure it by. Ill let the garage do that. I am looking to do the side lights but i cant seem to get them off...anyone know how they are removed?
  5. I thought that would be the best option too. ill just get them roughly in line with each other and then get the garage to adjust them. Tom they are sealed units so ill cross that bridge when i come to it. Hopefully not for a while
  6. Just upgraded to the PNM LED light conversion. Easy to do just a bit time consuming cutting the holes bigger in the pod to fit the lamps. Looks great when the lights are on. I need to adjust the headlamp level now, does anyone know how to set the levels correctly for the pending MOT?
  7. Hi Dave, ive had a look in the workshop manual and the above pic is the same as the one i have for an s3 prior to Vin 85 D 2427...
  8. Hi folks, im about to get the steering rack changed on my 86 S3 NA. I got a reconditioned unit from LotusBits and im about to order some replacement mounting bushes from SJ's. However im not sure whether to get Poly or Rubber mountings. They are the same price but looking for opinions please. Thanks Brett
  9. As the guys above said, they are held on by clips and can be quite tight. Just make sure you pull away in the right direction, i.e towards the other a pillar rather than inwards towards the seat..
  10. Hi Keir, i too got in touch with Coverdale for my 86 S3 and although they did get back quite quickly i too also received the same hand drawn picture. I got in contact as the guys above have said with @Steve V8. He produced a top quality carpet for me to fit in the colour i wanted. I think these pictures speak better than words. He is your man and at a very reasonable price too. Cant recommend him enough.
  11. Its nearly always a dodgy earth, or at least it is on my car!
  12. Hi folks, im replacing a worn steering rack in my 86 S3 due to its MOT Failure. I have a recon unit coming from Lotusbits. I need to know if there are other parts that are worth replacing while its out, I notice there are bushes on the SJ Website which are either heavy duty rubber or poly. Is there a preference for those and are they they only ones i will need. (When i say im replacing... i mean my garage is doing the work so im trying to save time while its on the ramp!) Many thanks
