  1. Got the buzzer from Amazon not eBay, but any 12V buzzer will do. https://www.amazon.co.uk/FTVOGUE-Active-Electronic-Buzzer-Continuous/dp/B07MXB4V9L/ref=nav_signin?crid=335N6EDJK0KCA&keywords=12v+dc+buzzer&qid=1647630700&sprefix=12v+dc+bu%2Caps%2C134&sr=8-24&
  2. @lotuslee281275, I was also accidentally leaving the indicator on as my quick release steering wheel does not always cancel the indicator. So have added a buzzer to the indicator relay to help with this. Bought the buzzer from eBay and connected it to the relay by watching this YouTube video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8zzDeWfm80 The guy in the video uses a piece of tape over the buzzer to control the sound level. I 3D printed a small bung to partly block the sound outlet hole but tape works just as well. Hope This Helps.
  3. Nice one, thanks for info πŸ‘
  4. Where did you get this splitter from? I have been looking for one with the turned up side fins that will fit the original front cam for ages.
  5. Hi @RoflOnMyWaffle, did you sort out the way the resistor is wired up to stop the airbag warning light from illuminating all of the time? The reason for asking is I am also looking at installing a de-airbag steering wheel, but need to know if this wiring fix solves any MOT checks. Mark.
  6. Thank you for all the replies. The answer looks like if an airbag is fitted then it cannot be removed. But that does raise the question that many members on this forum have removed the airbag from the steering wheel, and still drive them on the road and presumably their car passes the MOT each year? P.S. BoT is an acronym used on this forum for Back on Track. πŸ˜‰
  7. Advice needed. I have just taken my car to BoT as the airbag warning light was permanently on. They connected it to the diagnostic system but it was unclear which airbag was faulty. So they quoted me around Β£500 for each airbag. There is a fifty fifty chance in selecting the right one, or I could end up paying Β£1000 + labour if the good one was removed unknowingly. Therefore, I asked them to remove both airbags, and for now the warning light can be turned off within the AiM dash. The problem I have is the MOT is due at the end of this month. So would anybody know if it will pass with both airbags removed, the warning light disabled within the AiM dash and the OEM steering wheel and passenger airbag cover having Airbag embossed on them? As I understand it the failure will be around the warning light not eliminating on start up, but could be wrong about this. Has anybody done a de-airbag mod on their car with the warning light disabled within the AiM dash? I plan to eventually replace the OEM steering wheel with a quick release type and install seat harnesses, but for now I am more concerned with just getting the car through its MOT. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated. Mark.
  8. Update – AiM have emailed me back to confirm there is a software bug, so a new firmware update is on its way. πŸ™‚
  9. Hi All, Has anyone tried to connect two cameras to this dash display? I have just purchased the double AiM rear camera patch cable with two cameras for this dash, but I can only get the same camera feed for both video 1 and 2 within the settings screen. I have checked the cable pin continuity which correctly separates the two camera feeds and both cameras work correctly when swapped over. Thinking it may be a firmware issue I have installed the latest version 02.34.66 but this did not fix the problem. The only thing left is the dash display is not switching between the two camera feeds internally, as video 1 and 2 are using the same feed signal. I have emailed AiM asking if this is a known issue, but in the meantime I was wondering if anyone has got this dash working with two camera feeds. Also just for info I also have the AiM data hub connected to the exp. input connection with only the GPS module plugged into the data hub, but this should not affect the camera feeds.
  10. Hi Keith, Looks like you have made a popular part for the EA60 gearbox shifter. Great idea from @TBD and for you to develop it in to a working prototype. I know it is a work in progress but as @Martrack has pointed out there is a sharp corner where the pin attaches the body this could be a stress point in the design? Once you have developed the finished part I would also be interested in one. Will be following this thread with interest.
  11. Hi Cliff, I have also recently fitted these mirrors to my car and had the fun/frustration of threading the bolts back through the access holes. On my car one of the bolt heads was larger than the access hole so had no option but to drop it into the door cavity (don’t you just love Lotus engineering). If you haven't already retrieved the screw, you will need to remove the door panel and purchase a camera endoscope with a magnet attachment, as you will not have line of sight to the bolt. There are many online shops which sell them and I guarantee you will use it again on your car at some point. I purchased this one, but would suggest you buy one that connects directly to your phone as the wifi connection on this one is a little flaky. Plus direct connection types are a little cheaper. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0721M9VML/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 The other thing I did was run another stronger magnet along the bottom of the door. You will know once the magnet has found the screw, then slowly drag the screw towards the endoscope magnet. If all goes well you can then slowly pull the endoscope and screw out, Hope this helps.
  12. Thanks @MAG for confirming the seals were missing. Jon from lotushardtops.com has also contacted me about this, and will send the seals to me with instructions on how to fit them. Hopefully this is a one off issue as the quality of the hard tops is excellent and I would not want to put anybody off from purchasing such items from lotushardtops.com.
  13. Hi everyone, I have a question about the carbon fibre hardtop from lotushardtops.com. I ordered one of these back in February, but with Covid and other delays it was delivered to me a couple of weeks ago. Then last Sunday I had time to test fit the top on the car, all looked OK and the quality of the carbon weave is excellent. But it looks like the front and rear seals are missing with an 8mm gap either side. This makes the hardtop look unfinished when compared to the original one which came with the car. Therefore, I watched @MAG YouTube video to see if his hardtop has these seals, which it looks like it does. So I emailed Jon at lotushardtops.com to ask if the hardtop had been shipped without the seals being fitted. I’m still waiting for his reply. In the meantime can I ask if anyone has recently taken delivery of a hardtop from lotushardtops.com and are the front and rear seals fitted? Any help would be appreciated and put my mind at rest. Mark
  14. Hi @Theshur, Just checked the above hyperlink, the post is on page 32 of @GFWilliams thread, not page 40 as the link will take you to.πŸ˜‰
  15. Hi @Theshur, This may help if you plan to do the work yourself. @Arun_D posted the the service manual for the Exige S V6. Your Exige 410 will be identical for the parts you plan to change over. To get you started the air bag panel is covered on page 460. You will need to order 4 off replacement clips from DeRoure.com, part number B121U011F, as these are sacrificial and will break when the panel is removed. Hope this helps.
