  1. Hi Scott, thank you for email, i managed to get handle mechanism out to find the carriage had a slight twist in it which was preventing the cable pulling properly which then caused the clip to pop out of handle. All fixed now and working sweet, Thanks. Johnny
  2. Hi I am having problems with my inside door handle, the cable keeps jumping out of the holder as it seems to have to much resistance to open using inside handle. Firstly has anyone had this same problem? Secondly i am trying to remove the door mechanism but can't get it out, any ideas? thanks in advance. Johnny
  3. Thank You very Much, my motor has done 28,000 miles and front ones are corroded and warped and rears warped. As you will all know Genuine Lotus you won't get much change of £1,500.00
  4. Hi Where is the best place to buy Discs and Pads for a 2011 Evora S, Preferably DS2500 pads, I live in central Scotland
  5. Let's not forget why we all own Lotus cars, let's be serious for the money they cost the re-sale value and the performance they produce can you get better, this issue will resolve its self. As mentioned, yes closest Lotus Dealer is now Carlisle but I take this as still an option, it lets you drive your car and possibly make an event of it. We Have Craig Moncrieff who has great Knowledge of Lotus engineering. Since I bought mine I have had The Lotus Dealers stamp in the service Book, in Scotland Craig is so well known and services more Lotus cars than Leven did.
  6. Hi Mark, So It was you, i didn't have a clue who it was, that's the top road to Mossmoran just outside Auchtertool church, nice view of Camila loch from there to. All the guys seem to be doing their own thing now. Jim Love is having some events, but not near as many as past years. Let me know when you get your esprit on the road again. I don't think we have had a breakfast meet this year. Cheers Johnny
  7. Hi Brian, Unfortunately My one is still off road for some TLC, hope to get it back within the next two weeks.

  9. How about a wee drive round Fifes finest roads, Just a wee suggestion, Maybe Andrew Laing can incorporate a visit to his new foundry.
  10. 1 & 2 Brian & Jackie 3 & 4 Johnny & Audrey - eventually got the motor back after 8 and 1/2 weeks. 220 miles done on Sunday past. Vrooooom.
  11. Hi Roan, Did you have the Flywheel replaced? Johnny
  12. Hi, Where is the best place to buy Rear Brake pads for an Evora S 2011. can anyone send a link. thank you in advance. Johnny
  13. Hi James I hate to be the bearer of bad news but my 2011 Evora S is in at Leven Lotus for exactly the same thing, unfortunately for me it is the clutch, my one had exactly the same symptoms, Mines has only done 25,000 miles not sure what yours has done. The big problem is Lotus don't have spares, mines has been of the road now for six weeks. Major Job, Whole back end off. Please let me know how you get on. Johnny
  14. Hi Folks, Unfortunately my car is still in numerous parts spread over the Ramp and floor of Leven Lotus, so wont be able to attend. Have fun and drive safe.
