  1. I suspect it wont be upto your high standard but could you not use a template and spray the goodyear on to the tyre?
  2. Thats my old car, only had it 7 months before i had the chance to swap it for my GTE otherwise i would have kept it. It was an ex press car but dont let that put you off, it was a great car. Gav
  3. Im remembering back 7 years but yes. There's us a cable from the belt buckle and the one for the heating elements. In my 2010 car, it didnt cone with them but when the seats came out we found the backs had elements but the bases didnt. You should be able to see the cables where they route through the seat.
  4. Of they are heated they will have cables. My old ones only had cables in one half, sometimes tje cable is tucked inside the seat.
  5. As Bruss has pointed out, the stereo is fixed to the two side frames with some domed head machined screws, these catch so make it very tight to get in and out. It will come out but doesn't just pop out like most do.
  6. I cant remember the exact proceedure as its was years ago i did it, but there is a program/file you can load onto the sd card and identify the password.
  7. I would google an ac recon company and ask. Dont pay that!
  8. I would sumize that that as yours is 2017 H, ie after 2016 G, and as the buitin is dated 21/2016, that yours is the later type. You may be able just to pull the edge of the wheel arch liner enough to see? it may be easier to get yours rebuilt or see if a (my) failed old one could be rebuilt to the new spec seals/oil? That way its only one lot of labour to swap them over and the car isnt off the road unnessasarily? Gav
  9. I noticed on one of the exige threads there is an ac delete, its a replacement pulley on a bracket. Found it
  10. Im not that brave or handy, I got the dealer to do it! No problem, just give me a shout if you want it. The compressor is to heavy to post but may be able to post the clutch. Gavin
  11. Richard, ive looked and i still have my old siezed compressor complete with working clutch. If its any help you can have the clutch off it if it gets you back on the road? What part of the country are you in? Gav
  12. Didnt know they changed them. Deroure notes in section 18.03 says R 1234YF introduced on EU cars from vin GH 21289 refer to service builtin 2016/21 Im sure they must do a non oem verion of the later type. You could always get yours refurbished. I dont know if its an option but could you run a smaller belt with the ac compresor removed while you to get yours rebuilt? Gav
  13. If you have a look on the other lotus forum techwiki you can find the part numbers for the toyota and other reference numbers i found when my na evora compressor seized years ago.
  14. Ive had an aircon pump sieze and normally the ecu detects it and disengages the ac clutch. I reset the code and all you heard was a momentary squeak and it disengaged the compressor again. I would be suprised if it was that as the ac clutch would have to be seized aswell. How old is your car? If the pump has gone and you ha e to pay for it, dont get it from lotus!
