  1. Wife saw this great example in sainsburys carpark. V nice
  2. Yes! That's the stuff. So sounds like a replacement seal then. Yes I have no A/C either. TBH, I probably rarely have just one window open. If I'm alone and open the drivers window, I'll usually open the passenger one a smidge as it improves the airflow. Maybe it's for the reason you say - I'll ask next time I have a passenger. Si
  3. Glad you got it sorted. Yup I found the connection fiddly too. Good luck with the leak. Trying to remember how I fixed mine. I think it was just treating with a rubber restorer/conditioner
  4. So, what happens if you release the boot catch end of the cable? Not as simple as it sounds as there are lots of 'bits' around each catch, but when I did mine, having undone everything, the cable and handle all slid out without having to undo anything behind the bulkhead.
  5. The tensioner on the 'release' housing is found above the drivers side fuel tank on an S3. But if it's just the cable that's broken, it doesn't need to be touched. I've recently replaced my cable 'just in case' and swaged it into the old handle, feeding new cable through sleeve. But perhaps i misunderstand?
  6. My Faithfull mini socket set. Use it nearly every day and it's a joy to use.
  7. 57 here. Kind of addictive though...
  8. Absolutely. Had a look inside the old motor - the grease had turned to sludge. I could have just cleaned it up but found another motor on Ebay that was pristine inside. I think it just needs a good overhaul. I'm putting the old motor back on Ebay as its likely still servicable.
  9. Funny isn't it. Sometimes you answer your own questions. It was a bad contact within the replacement motor. Diagnosis got compounded by another bad contact in the light switch in the binnacle. Anyway, all working now. Pod speed matched. I'll have to investigate the headlight switch - replacement from SJs is £40 including delivery!!!!
  10. Hi guys, I'm sure I have read about this here somewhere but cant find the thread. I have just changed out one of my pod lift motors as my old one was very sluggish. On fitting the replacement, with lights on, they come up and stay up. All good. However, when I turn lights off, they go down and up and down and up. etc etc. Where should I be looking? Bad contact somewhere?? Si

    Oh. It is a tub of Marmite spread.

    Get the copyright in there quick. I wrote to Marmite a few years ago (2017) with my idea of combining Marmite with butter (would have been called Mutter) or Marmite with Flora (Mora) as Flora is also a Unilever product. I suggested it could be combined in different ways, homogenous or swirled; in varying concentrations and the public to decide on the exact nature ...etc.. Here is the reply I received Hello from Marmite, Thank you for your recent comments to us, Simon. We are always looking for new ways in which we can improve our range of products and so we welcome suggestions or ideas from our consumers.

  13. I live near Shawbury and have regular flyovers by helis. I asked the base commander and they are regularly well under 400ft. Standard Flight radar app won't help but ADSB flight tracker shows low level activity.
  14. I bought a TR7 headlamp lift motor.....
  15. Really love those images. But For perfection, the pods need a little adjustment.
