  1. ***My Favourite Biker Joke Of The Day**** A little girl was leaning into a lion's cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the collar of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, all under the eyes of her screaming parents: A biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch. Whimpering from the pain, the lion jumps back, letting go of the girl, and the biker brings the girl to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly. A BBC reporter, Laura Kuenssberg, had watched the whole event. Laura, addressing the
  2. Just saw this is for sale by auction on Catawiki. 15 days to go Never seen one offered for sale ever. Located in France. ( I have nothing to to with the car or the auction, --- worse luck!) Lotus - Esprit Saint Tropez - 1978 - Catawiki
  3. Hi Guys, Good news! I went down to the garage today to have another go at getting the seized clutch plate to free up. Started her up and waited half an hour as per @Clive59. I maybe left it a bit too long because it started boiling and overflowed out the header tank! Anyway, after that little setback, tried the 'put it in reverse gear (I was in the garage) then turn the starter motor over' method. After jerking it out of the garage, it finally let go and I could drive it properly. Big relief. I didn't really fancy taking the engine out again. I gave it a small run round the block and ever
  4. Thanks @Clive59. I did let it warm up but not for as long as half an hour. I will try that as well when I go down to the garage. Thanks.
  5. Hi Ian, Many thanks for your remedy. Talking to a mate yesterday, he has said exactly the same thing word for word! Im going back to the garage next week so will try it out. Finger crossed. I'll let you know how I get on. Thanks again. 👍 👍
  6. I was concerned my mate was addicted to drinking brake fluid. He told me he can stop anytime!
  7. Wow. Does sound brutal. Im going to give @Sparky 's idea of towing it and see how I get on. Thanks for the suggestion. It may come to that!
  8. Yes, it selects all gears ok without engine running. Ill go down and have another go with starting it in gear and also pumping the pedal. Hadnt thought of towing. Might be a good idea. I do have a bit of a run. Ill try that if no luck before. Thanks for the suggestion.
  9. ----- Premium rate? ------- Show him you 'gear lever'. Are we talking about the same problem? I have a problem with my car!!
  10. I would have thought this problem has been discussed on here before but I cannot find anything. Its a very true statement that you should run your Lotus regularly. I have driven my Eclat for over 30 years as my everyday driver with no problem. However since getting my S1, the Eclat has not been driven as often and has been sitting in a (damp) garage. Exacerbated by covid restrictions of course meaning I cannot drive either of them as often as I would wish. I thought I had better give the Eclat a run out seeing as it hasnt been out since November. She started up ok, but I couldn
  11. There is a documentary starting tonight (27/01/2021) on BBC2 about the DeLorean. Its called DeLorean: Back From The Future.
  12. Yes I agree with Tim @TAR and David @Fridge. Indicator relay. The other could be hazard warning flasher unit. My flasher unit and hazard unit are near together in the same inacessable place as yours !.
