  1. The bolts were rock solid so no need to remove that clam. Shame they installed them at angle but just had to drill out one of the hinge holes a tad.
  2. Just checked aircon on my 400. Nothing cool at all
  3. So there are 2 x part "15" screws that hold in the black grill on each side at the rear underneath the tailgate. I want to replace the screws as they have gone rusty - but, one does not unscrew as the bit of plastic (?) behind the grill that the screw goes into is going round with the screw. Any ideas? I've tried sliding a thin nail through the grill into a slot on the plastic but it does not hold it. There's one screw on each side that does this
  4. All disassembled, cleaned up, painted and will go back in tomorrow. The bolts are captive - hurrah! But, Lotus secured one of them just off perpendicular so a real fight to remove the hinge
  5. I would hope they've used plastic hinges! There's hardly any weight to hold. I've had mine open all week to really dry out, I'll take it apart at the weekend, Kurust it, drill some holes (larger than 2mm - thank you!) and slap it all back together. One serious upgrade. I'm also replacing some screws at the back that have gone rusty. Ace mechanic or wot
  6. OK, 2 obvious questions for you all. Is there are a drain hole around here to stop the water pooling around the hinge? And, if I unbolt the hinge to clean it up, will the two bolts drop out and I'll need to take the front clam off to rescue them?!!
  7. Just do you know - rang their Service department last week and their only Lotus trained mechanic has left . . .
  8. I'm likely way too late to this party, but is this Hebrew thing just pure PR? I mean, you read EVIJA backwards and it is AJIVE, then twist the "J" as you would see it in a mirror and it becomes ALIVE . . .
