  1. Here's a writeup on my issues back in 2008.

    Pilots get bored pretty quick here.
  4. Are you prepping for an autumn sale or spring sale ? i remember getting all excited when I finally put mine on the market, thinking it would sell the following weekend...
  5. 47 degrees of Summer fun. That’s Celsius.
  6. I’d be going thru the wiring diagrams seeing what links those two items together. I’m thinking a bad earth.
  7. Perfect alignment. Well done. i was going to get the side windows tinted, and they mentioned that the decals would have to go. So scrubbed that idea.
  8. New gas struts.... or you’ve finally got the back hatch open.
  9. As soon as all my problems were fixed, I got paranoid taking it out, thinking what else was going to fail. Even though I really had no issues over the 16 years. I thought that putting it on the market it would sell the following weekend. In the end took 10 months.
  10. I've been on this forum for 14 years and never ventured outside of my own little Esprit area. :-/ Anyway, after 16 years of ownership I've just sold my Esprit and am in the process of getting rid of a life collection of spares. Since the Elan uses the same indicators as the late Esprit I thought I'd drop a link here as well. I bought these from Lotus back in 2002 and never had a need for them - still wrapped up. Hopefully someone else can put them to good use. Linky below. Starting at 0.99c for the pair. Lotus Elan / Esprit indicator Lenses
  11. I've put the lenses up on Ebay, starting at 0.99c. Lotus Esprit Elan Indicator Lenses
  12. Hotter the better. Love the heat. Can’t beat a good week of 40 deg C. Highest we got to here recently was 44 deg - beautiful. But I do live on the beach and have a big pool. Have to admit a dry heat is far better than humid heat.
  13. If the accumulator starts to go, you'll get a hard ABS light on the dash, this will set after a couple of brake presses on the road. But a failure of the accumulator or switch will not adversely affect the brakes, they will still work well... for a while. My brakes were always good and firm. Took a bit of foot pressure but only proportional to a quicker stopping time. My Pedal was never spongy, always firm after the accumulator had kicked in at turn on.
  14. 0.99c for the pair. Well that's what I'm going to start them at on Ebay. Give me another week or so and I'll put them up. Might end up being a real bargain for someone.
  15. Yes - sadly another red car. problem now is that the wife has just seen our new inflated bank balance.
